Shhhhh Quiet Please! Soundproof Drywall With the Team From Purple

One of our most fun projects this year has been designing a master bedroom retreat for our clients Eduardo and Shannell. A fun couple, with two amazing kids, Alex and Gabby, who also like to spend loads of time in mom and dad's bedroom. 

But while designing the space, we learned that there's lots of sound traveling between their bedroom and their daughter Gabby's adjoining bedroom. 
We had no plans for a major renovation so didn't want to rip the wall apart to add insulation/soundproofing material between the framing.  
Thankfully the folks at National Gypsum®  makers of the PURPLE® brand of drywall recommended one of their newest products, SoundBreak XP Retrofit® Board which reduces noise transmission between rooms or dwellings.
We've been working with this brand since last year and have learned so much about the materials we use for most of our projects. 

This acoustically enhanced gypsum board easily installs over existing drywall, without the need for disruptive and expensive demolition. It's the perfect material to use in between bedrooms, a nursery and a media room. 

Prepped floors for our retrofit installation. 

We removed the existing baseboards and crown moldings which were easily reinstalled once the drywall was in place. 

At its center is a layer of material specifically designed to absorb and dissipate noise, which helps keep sound in – or out of – the rooms where it matters most. And most important, it can be installed right over your existing drywall. 

Baseboards and crown moldings have been reinstalled. 

Once the new drywall is installed, we used joint compound to smooth all the seams before we repainted the room. 

The walls is all done and is now ready to block sound, and ready for a close up. 

Now that the room is all fabulous the kids are still taking over! But now Gabby is sleeping soundly without hearing the noise from the television, and mom and dad can enjoy some quality time in their new retreat.
