Insulate and Soundproof an Interior Wall or Room with Roxul



hey there on this video we are going to show you how to soundproof an interior partition wall such as this one now why would you want to soundproof a room at all well the world's getting louder people are making home theaters but there's other applications as well perhaps you want to you know keep the keep the noise out of the furnace room or maybe the laundry room the wall in Pullum some prefer right now is actually the wall that separates the bathroom from this room now why would you want to soundproof the bathroom wall I think it's to keep those embarrassing sounds from reaching the rest of the house and by embarrassing sounds I mean the singing the shower you know who you are now rocks all safe and sound is going to fit and snugly on any wall that is 16 the center and because at using a 2×4 but sometimes such as this wall check this out you'll get obstructions okay you'll have wiring and you'll have plumbing now if I want to just put this rock so safe and sound up against it well it's going to bunch up here and maybe here and insulation actually loses properties whenever you compress it so in order to properly insulate this I have to make a couple of cuts using this serrated bread knife so because this is a big obstruction what I do is I'm going to measure it out it is at about 16 inches so I'm going to score this at 16 coming down to the center and the wiring is at about 24 measure off 24 there we go now because the wiring is pretty thin all I really have to do is score the back about half way and then I'm just going to relax it in the middle so it can surround the wire but this is a bigger issue this is a much wider obstruction so knowing that it's 6:00 in the center again I'm going to cut it to the middle but then what I'm going to do this is what about 3-inch pipe cut about an inch and a half on each side I'm going to put a v-notch on one side and then a v-notch on the other again using this serrated bread knife because don't forget rocks will safe and sound like all rocks with products they are made of rock and slag so if you use a regular regular utility knife blade you'll go through the way too quick okay so having scored my bat now I got to press it up against here into the fitting since the studs insert compress release and look at that see here your draw will now go up nicely there's no longer problem going to continue up here with this wall doing the same thing measuring up to the wire 31 scored in the middle install it and in a moment I will show you how to get around not only the plumbing but also electrical boxes okay so now I'm going to tackle this wall and this one is pretty tricky because not only you have plumbing you also wiring any of an electrical box but the cool thing about rocks will safe and sound is that you know it's made of rock and it's made of a slag so it's pretty rigid and you can pretty much shape it any way you want almost like like a cake really so this is how I would tackle this problem the plumbing is at 16 but it's not all the way through so it's about 10 inches from the wall so I mark 16 there 10 inches there I'm going to cut to the center of the bat and like last time because it's a big obstruction cut a v-notch about an inch and half from the line digging it out it almost feels like digging out bread you know when you don't want all the chrome all the bread in the middle using also a bread knife now our wiring we are at about 24 and a half 24 and a half again score to about the middle of the bat and because it's wire again it's not a very big obstruction you can just sort of relax the opening with your finger it should naturally just wrap itself around the wire now the electrical box and this is where it gets tricky because you got to sort of flip your brain at least I do what you're going to try to bring the insulation in behind which means now I'm going to flip this over and I got to remember this is the bottom and I'm going to measure from 11 to about 14 and a half remember this is the back and this is the bottom 11 14 and a half the box is about two inches there's two inches now here's here's the tricky part I want about one inch in behind the electoral box so again just like carving out a piece of bread or a cake I'm going to bring it all down like bread crumbs pull them out and there is my space for my electrical box so having made space for the wire for the plumbing and for the box it should work safe and sound insert compress and release look at that that I would say is almost perfect thanks for watching this video
