Green Glue Noiseproofing Compound is fast, easy to use, highly cost effective, and it works. Independent lab tests prove that just one layer of Green Glue Noiseproofing Compound between two layers of drywall or other similar building material dissipates up to 90 percent of noise. Unlike competitive soundproofing products, Green Glue Noiseproofing Compound cuts out the low frequency noises commonly produced by home entertainment and theater systems. Application is as easy as 1-2-3. 1. Cut the drywall to spec. 2. Apply Green Glue Noiseproofing Compound with any standard quart-sized calking gun. 3. Screw into existing wall or new drywall and enjoy. Starting at less than .50 per square foot, Green Glue Noiseproofing Compound delivers unbeatable value and performance. It’s perfect for residential and commercial use and is just as easy to use in new construction as it is on existing walls or in renovation projects. In addition, Green Glue Noiseproofing Compound has been validated for use in any fire rated assembly according to the International Building Code. It also does not contribute to mold growth and has almost no odor. Green Glue Noiseproofing Compound can be easily cleaned up while still wet with soap and water.

    Reasonable price in bulk !Soundproofing basement apartment ceiling.

    Works as expectedWe did a lot of research for adding sound dampening to our party wall. We were restricted from building out and adding insulation, and since this was the alternative I thought it was worth the price. My advice is treat sound like water: caulk and seal every place that it can leak through. It hasn’t gotten rid of our sound issues, but it has helped a lot in making things tolerable.

    Works very wellSo I probably went overboard but I put in a double wall, then insulated both walls with Roxul. I sheeted the inner wall with 5/8 plywood and the outer wall with 5/8 drywall. I smothered another layer of drywall with green glue and then layered that over the plywood. So I now have a sandwich that goes: Drywall : Roxul : Roxul : Plywood : Green Glue : Drywall. I will be adding a layer of straw padding and then finally acoustic fabric.On the ceiling I used 1 layer of Roxul and just two layers of drywall with green glue in between. I made sure the drywall guys used short screws so as to not penetrate through the plywood to the studs.I ended up using 4 x 5 gallon drums of green glue. I used the dispensing gun and filled it twice for each sheet of 12 ft drywall. I think that equates to a little over 2 tubes if you are not using the 5 gallon drums.The theater is about 30 feet by 16 feet. Already there is zero sound transmission in either direction and pounding on the floor above is hardly audible.

    Not sure of it’s effectiveness.I’m renovating a rental apartment, took up all the old hardwood flooring. Secured the subfloor with screws and changed any area that needed changing. I did not pull up the subfloor.After a ton of research I decided to go with green glue compound sandwiched between the sub floor and a 1/2 inch cork underlayment with green glue sealant around the edges. It’s kind of messy to work with. This was my first time though.I did the math of how much square footage a 5 gallon bucket covers, based on needing 2-28oz tubes per 32 sft………..but in reality each bucket covered 300 sft. As far as efficiency goes I don’t know if it’s the cork or green glue or a combination of both, but I have noticed a difference. Gun needed needs to be purchased separately.

    Yes. It works.Installed 5/8 over existing 5/8 wall 2×4 double wall staggered studs, old insulation. This is an adjoining stairway wall between two townhouses. Could very clearly almost make out words of the neighbors before applying even if they weren’t raising their voices. After about a week it seemed less, now about 3 weeks in I hear absolutely nothing unless someone really raises their voice to a yelling volume. 2 tubes per sheet, 1/4 inch gap all the way around every sheet and generic acoustic caulk between seems, mud and tape over that. Overall I do believe this product works and I will use it again in renovation scenarios. If applied and installed correctly you will see a noticeable improvement.

    Love this stuff, will never doubt it again. Worth every penny for my woodshop.A few people posting that this didn’t work for them. The only way that would be true is if they didn’t read enough prior. I built the cheapest room I could, single stud 5/8 drywall > roxul > 5/8 drywall > green glue > 5/8 drywall. The most important extra things I did were to seal EVERY single gap during each layer of drywall with soundproof caulk. The intake and outtake for the ventilation was completely boxed in with the same wall setup + padding. There is a MASSIVE difference with the green glue. My compressor and saws are completely silent outside the room. There are a few frequencies that go right through the wall, but it’s expected. Love this stuff, will never doubt it again.

    my impression is that this is the superior product. Construction noise such as sawingAfter an exhaustive review of available soundproofing technologies I decided to apply this product between two sheets of five eighths wallboard mounted on RC channel for floor ceiling sounds eparation in an apartment building. An eighth of an inch prrimeter spacing was filled in with acoustic sealant prior to taping and mudding.Having in the past used soundboard, quiet rock, and two sheets of five eighths rock without the green glue, my impression is that this is the superior product. Construction noise such as sawing, drilling, and hammering have become barely audible, seeming to co e in through the windows rather thzn between floors.Regrettably Green Glue is very expensive for what seems to be a non hardening sticky watered down latex pfoduct. If it was cheaper I would use it more often. If there were actual competitors I would use them if the price was better. Because of the cost I give it 3 stars.

    Black mold formed on Green Glue in bucketI hadn’t used the sealed Green Glue for a couple of years after I bought it (renovation had to be put on hold). When I opened the bucket for the first time a few months back, there was some separation and very watery type liquid at the top. So I used a mixer on my drill to mix the Green Glue back to its original consistency, and then used very little for the small project I was working on, and sealed the bucket. Today, when I opened the bucket to use some more, there was black mold spots on the top layer of the Green Glue. I immediately sealed back and now have to throw out. Still over 90% unused! WHAT A WASTE OF MONEY!!! Never added anything to the Green Glue; only stirred it with a mixer that one time. VERY DISAPPOINTED!!!
