Soundproof Paint vs. Our Products

Let’s be honest. Sometimes soundproofing materials can be expensive. And if you have a large space that you need to treat, it could cost thousands of dollars. In an effort to save money on your soundproofing project, you turn to soundproofing paint – an inexpensive, ineffective product.

Soundproof Paint

Sound dampening paint only addresses the mid-range frequencies, which is basically the frequency of regular speech. High frequencies (like the sound of a flute) and low frequencies (like planes or outside traffic) are not protected using sound dampening paint.

Sound deadening paint is a minimum cost solution for those looking to enhance the sound and appearance of their space, but there are a few restrictions when it comes to its helpfulness, both in sound and sight.

1. Sound deadening paint has been identified to leave a very heavy coating on the wall producing a speckled or raised surface. In order to achieve evident soundproofing results, you have to put on multiple coats, which leads to more substantial texture.

2. Soundproof paint can only be tinted to light pastel colors due to its high pigment content.Your interior design options are restricted with soundproof paint.

3. Soundproof paint does not make a substantial difference.To put it in perspective, humans perceive a loss of 10 decibels to be 50% quieter. Sound proof paint doesn’t soundproof, it aids in absorbing sound.
