    What sort of noise ?, usually noise is blocked by mass ie the heaver something is - the more it is effective at blocking noise ie lead plate is better than paper plate (mass is usually equated to weight). I never been sure how pink,green bats block noise - maybe they adsorb some of it which is slightly different ?

    Getting rid of road noise is a problem, ive tried - it would be easier to get used to it than to fix.

    Cheers

  • standard ceiling insulation, how good is the soundproofing benefit?

    Our place has a clay tile roof, lots of air gaps so lots of sound goes right into the roof cavity and into the house. I'm close to going ahead with ceiling insulation and am curious how effective a standard install is for sound reduction. If anyone has experience did you find it helped a great deal? Or will I need to target some spots with noise batts instead? Thanks
