Sound absorption is when a surface, or building material absorbs sound instead of reflecting it. Many common building materials, such as gypsum board, wood, concrete, brick and tile, are reflective and do not absorb much sound. Softer materials, such as carpet, foam padding, and fiberglass insulation, are far better at absorbing sound. Every home has a different sound blueprint. That’s why it’s important to talk to a professional. Our expert team can help you determine which sound absorption material is right for your home.
