What is Sound Deadening?

A common misunderstanding we often see is that insulation can soundproof your home.  To soundproof a structure means to create friction to the passage of sound, which results in blocking the sound entirely. While insulation in any form cannot soundproof your walls, it CAN deaden the sound.  Here at Gulf Coast RetroFoam we are proud of the fact that we can significantly deaden sound!

Sound deadening reduces the vibration of volume.  In order to fully grasp the benefits of RetroFoam’s sound deadening abilities, we need to understand the basics of how sound travels. According to GIK Acoustics in Atlanta, Georgia, sound travels in two ways — throughout the air and through structures.   Airborne sound is simple to understand.  Any open air you have in a room are considered sound leaks–for example, outlets, HVAC ducting, electrical switches, etc.
When sound travels through structures, the sound vibrates those structures as well as everything connected to them–walls, floors, duct work, etc.  Those vibrations duplicate and magnify the sound, resulting in a noisy home.  However, with RetroFoam, we can help you transform your home into a quiet oasis with its ability to sound deaden.
