When homeowners want soundproof rooms, adding mineral wool, installing the acoustic foam or panels on walls are usually the first things that come to mind. They often ignore the doors. 

Often we emphasize on well-insulated exterior doors more than having noise-blocking interior doors. Here are a few areas many homeowners overlook:

  • Cracks between door and door frame. 
  • Hollow crack that allows sound to travel through
  • Big gaps at the bottom of the door
  • Cracks between the frame and the door itself
  • The cracks and gaps result in letting sound to travel to your house or your room freely while destroying the quality of sound.
