While home buyers love big, open living spaces and tall ceilings these details can become problematic when it comes to noise. Reverberating around the home, builders and remodelers are always looking for ways to reduce noise and decreasing sound levels. A new product from CertainTeed can help. As Builder Magazine senior editor Jennifer Goodman writes,
"Easier, more efficient acoustic interior finishing is now possible with the company's SilentFX QuickCut noise-reducing gypsum board. An alternative to typical resilient channel or double layer wallboard applications, SilentFX QuickCut allows building professionals to achieve acoustical control through a much less complicated installation process. It scores and snaps like regular drywall and achieves more reliable lab to field STC results when compared to traditional methods, where errors often occur when clips and channels are compromised at the jobsite, says the firm."
