“Finest Finish was able to greatly reduce the sound transmission from our home gym to surrounding rooms. No longer do the rest of the family have to listen to the clanging of my husband’s weights!”

How does soundproofing work?

Soundproofing works by blocking sound transmission. This may seem obvious, but the concept often becomes conflated with sound absorption. So what is the difference?

Sound Absorption

Sound absorption will reduce echo and background noise in a space, which will improve the sound quality within that space. This is achieved with sound-absorbing materials such as foam or sponges, which absorb the sound waves, as opposed to reflecting them. A music room or gym are prime examples of where sound-absorbing materials are especially beneficial. Acoustic foams and panels won’t block sound transmission, but they will reduce it slightly and can work in conjunction with soundproofing.

Soundproofing

Most people who contact Finest Finish are looking for soundproofing. They want to minimize the noise coming from outside their space. There are four basic ways to block sound from transmitting through walls, ceilings or floors. They are best used together for maximum effectiveness.

Decoupling: Sound travels through the rigid connections in walls, ceilings or floors. In the example of a wall, it travels from drywall to stud to drywall. Decoupling the framing within walls will break the pathway and the flow of the sound vibration. Decoupling is the foundation for all other soundproofing methods and is highly effective, depending on the specific system for decoupling. The most effective methods are double stud walls and staggered stud walls. Less effective but also less costly are soundproofing clips with hat channels and resilient channels. Neither of these last two should be used in walls that are used to hang heavy objects such as cabinets.

Absorption: As well as traveling through the rigid connections in a wall, the cavities within the wall can vibrate allowing some sound to travel through the wall. Insulation is used in conjunction with decoupling to absorb this vibration.

Added Mass: If a wall is very heavy, it is harder to vibrate. So adding mass such as 5/8″ drywall, plywood, OSB, and cement board will help reduce vibration. Unfortunately mass won’t stop lower frequencies such as the bass line of the neighbour’s pounding music.

Dampening: Green Glue™ and Sonopan™ are often the superior options, which will dampen the vibration in the drywall, reducing the workload of the methods mentioned above.

Most of the aforementioned methods are more easily accomplished at the construction phase of a building, though installation is certainly feasible in the renovation process. The most practical and effective solution we recommend to clients is the combination of resilient channel, Sonopan™ and 5/8″ drywall.

I hired another company in March to paint our maple kitchen cabinets. After being delayed month after month, in August I finally gave up on them and looked for someone else. I'm so glad I found Finest Finish. I was immediately struck by the quick response, the professionalism of the quote, and the firm commitment to a date. The job is now finished, and we couldn't be happier with the results. The process was smooth, with minimum disruption, and it looks like a brand new kitchen. I certainly recommend Dylan and Coulton, we are very pleased.

These guys were super responsive to an inquiry for their services. As a small business owner myself, taking the time give quotes and have back and forth with potential customers with no guarantee of a contract /sale is costly and frustrating and they didn’t miss a beat in providing us with all the information we needed. Very professional and we appreciated it so much.

We were so impressed with the work done by Dylan and his excellent team on our basement renovation. Dylan was always quick to respond and the whole process was seamless. They all did an amazing job, always on time, went above and beyond, and finished the whole project very fast. We would not hesitate to contact them again in future, and will definitely recommend Finest Finish to others. Thank you Dylan and the whole team! Don & Donna

These guys really know what they are doing. Dylan, Colton and the team are professionals. We had an interior wall demolished, new drywall installed and painted and popcorn ceiling patched. Finest Finish gave us a fair estimate, communicated throughout, respected the Strata rules, showed up on time and did a great job.

We hired these guys to remove all the old popcorn ceilings in our home and it turned out incredible. The dustless sander, the prep, and the air filtration system made it easy for us to live and not have our home interfered with. Thank you team.

I had been thinking of redoing my home for a while, and this spring is when I finally decided to go forward with the project. I shopped around for a while to find the best company to do this project with. I didn't want to cheap out and end up disappointed with the end results. After talking with several companies, I decided to go with Finest Finish. Dylan, and Colton, and their apprentice Tim are such a great team to hire. The work you get for what they charge is honestly incredible. One of the best things is the care they have for your home while working on it. Aside from showing up early, and staying late each day. They do their best to leave your home in as clean of a state as they can each day before heading out. Their team gives you confidence when you're home is being worked on, which is honestly so appreciated. Before the project started my home just wasn't what I wanted for myself. It had good bones and looked good for the most part, but it didn't reflect my style and esthetics. When they left for the final time, all I can say is that I was so at peace. The finishing touches were beautiful. Seams were invisible, the framing and dry wall was tight and smooth, the paint job to top it all off was perfect. They use top quality products, and don't cut corners. If something unforseen pops up, they're quick to figure out affordable yet quality solutions. If you're looking for a full home Reno, or even a small project, and want peace of mind, and amazing reaults, I would recommend reaching out to Finest Finish Painting and Drywall. They're a busy bunch, but it's worth the wait! Thanks guys, you made a place that I can come home to and be really happy about. Derek

I contacted Dylan initially to come and provide us with an estimate for an interior renovation project that we had in mind. Given the age our home and the variables of having lathe and plaster etc.. I was a little concerned and skeptical about doing the renovation, but Dylan came in with absolute confidence and certainty that the job would turn out incredible. They delivered nothing short of that. The entire crew showed up everyday on time, they worked efficiently as a team, and with an exceptional eye for detail. The end result is more then we could have hoped for, and we're very grateful to have come across such a passionate and honest crew of individuals. Colten and his apprentice were such a pleasure to have working in our home. Very polite , respectful, humorous. Over all 11/10 experience. You get what you pay for with the guys at Finest Finish!

I hired the team at Finest Finish to undertake re-skimming the entirety of my 1960's condo, walls & ceilings. Dylan, was very professional, and explained the entire process to me clearly, and in great detail. The drywaller's who showed up to do the were phenomenal, very hard working, punctual, and respectful. I appreciated they brought their dustless sanding machine to protect my home during the process. I am very grateful to have come across this company, who truly delivers on what they say! 10/10 will recommend to all my friends and family!

Finest Finish did not disappoint from quote to finish. Dylan responded to my request for a quote in a timely manner and attended at our home as scheduled. Dylan was also a great communicator responding to my emails and answering my many questions without delay and provided a fair and competitive quote. Colton was not only professional and friendly he was methodical and meticulous with his keen eye fixing any imperfections in our drywall throughout the painting process. Colton also ensured we had rich and even paint coverage throughout. Our old wood railings and banister have never looked better – Colton did an amazing job prepping and painting them. They surpassed our expectations. Our floors and belongings were also well protected. As their name suggests – they do give the finest finish! We highly recommend Finest Finish – we are so very happy with the results. Thank you FF Team!

After we installed new plumbing in our upstairs bathroom we were left with two jagged wired massive holes in our downstairs bathroom ceiling. We decided to have Finest Finish do the repairs because Dylan was the ONLY CONTRACTOR who wanted to fix our drywall correctly. Dylan, knew right away that the old ceiling was top of the line,saying 'they don't make them like that anymore'. He explained to me why I needed to keep that strong part of the ceiling and what should be done to restore it properly. He and his team cut the jagged wire mesh holes back smooth, drywalled, and mudded it so well that you cannot tell there was ever a problem. Dylan even repaired damage above the toilet for free because he said it bothered him! Our bathroom looks amazing now. I HIGHLY recommend them
