We live in an apartment building. Our two bedrooms are directly above the building's garage door. The opening and closing of the garage door disrupts the peace at home and sleep of my family.
Since we do not have too much options on what can be done with the garage door for noise reduction, we are looking into sound proofing on our bedrooms floors.
There are three types of noises we hear when the garage door is in operation: - steady humming of garage door opener - metal clanking - a loud stud sound when the door has reached all the way up or down
The garage door opener is mounted to the concrete ceiling in the level below our bedroom (building's car garage). We measured the noise decidable in our bedroom using an iphone + app and observed these numbers in dB:
- Evening time garage door is not in motion: ~42 dB
- Garage door in motion at loudest: 74 dB
- Garage door in motion average: 68 dB
We are looking for any technical advise on what can we do with our bedroom floors to reduce this noise.
