STOPPING THE NOISE FROM TILED FLOORS BEING HEARD IN ROOMS BELOW

In shared accommodation, solutions are therefore necessary to allow tiling to be installed without causing noise pollution to the neighbours below. This CPD examines the common methods used and compares them with using an impact-sound reducing tile backer board such as the SoundBoard by Marmox.
