Good morning,

I have hardwood floors witch I'm planning to take
out because they squeak. My tenants also speak
very loundly until late at night. I would like to
have your opinion on the best way of sound
proofing without braking my ceiling but only
by fixing the floor upstairs.

What follows is what I'm thinking to do:

I want to take out my hardwood floor, take out
the plywood under and fill my joist with 2
sets of sound proof insolation. Do I have to
leave space between both insolations or do I put
them one on top of each other ? After I will
install new plywoods with screws and on top
of the plywood I'm putting some 1/8 inch rubber
mat between the plywood and the hardwood floor.
Then, I will install back the old hardwood floor on
top of the rubber mat. Will this cut the sound by
at least 70% ?

Your assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you and have a good day !
