best way to soundproof real wood floor before laying over old wooden floor?

real wood flooring Add comments

I’m wanting to lay a new ‘no glue’ real wood floor over old flooring (currently covered in carpet) that isn’t good enough to sand down, etc. I have a tenant in the flat below and want to reduce as far as possible, the sounds from my floor. What would you recommend? (I’m not particularly loud but I am aware that sound travels through flooring quite easily, even walking on the floor in shoes might be irritating). If you happen to know where to get good quality wooden glueless flooring at a good price, that would be a huge and unexpected bonus!Many Thanks. Eddie

    u can lay it over the carpet am sure…real wood is cheaper than laminate in some places……rugland/woodland has got some great prices on hardwood flooring, as has behar and carpetwise another good type is engineered flooring..its real wood on top of compressed wood, it lasts forever, and looks great.

    most floors creak as i,m sure you know..first you should screw down the old flooring next to the old brad nails to stop creaking ..then lay a counter batten cross ways over the floor and pack out any discrepancies to give a sound level base,it is up to you if you want to insulate in some way…….lay some under floor quilting over entire floor and then lay the new flooring with whatever fixings necessary..allow for expansion at skirting boards
