This is my basement ceiling this morning:
After a couple of hours, I removed all drop ceiling for entire basement with 1 living room and 2 bedrooms:
I would like to install drywall with access panels near plumbing and most IMPORTANT: Soundproofing.
I searched online and there are many ideas but I cannot decide which idea to go for. I want to achieve two purposes: (1) block from air travel and (2) block from floor transmit (vibration from someone walking on top). One issue is that I cannot do anything about the wall because it is just too much work. So the focus is the ceiling only.
So my options that I researched are:
Use regular R30 insulation and drywall. This seems cheapest but does it work OK most of the time for soundproof?
Use Acoustic Insulation Roll. But I don't know how to install this. Is it "wrapped" around the joist and basement ceiling plywood then install drywall below? Or it is sandwiched between two pieces of drywall?
Use Resilient Sound Isolation Clip for drywall
Use specialize product with both insulation and Resilient Channels
I would love to hear more advise and past experiences from everyone.
