Good vs. Bad Materials: Sheetrock

Monday, May 3rd, 2010

We’re going to continue our exploration of different soundproofing materials by taking a close look at sheetrock – specifically lead lined sheetrock.

The cool thing about sheetrock lined with lead is that it is really great at blocking or reducing sound. While we don’t think it is quite as effective as Green Glue, we do think it gives the product a run for its money.

Unfortunately (or fortunately), lead lined sheetrock can cost up to $250 per sheet. It’s definitely not affordable. Therefore, we likely won’t ever use it and we certainly don’t recommend it.
