than six years ago Craig moved into a home near a municipal waste
transfer depot in a leafy blue chip suburb. Within days of arrival he
soon realised that life was going to be very challenging. Every morning
at about 4am trucks would loudly motor in and around the adjacent depot
and during the day a green mulched almost the size of a house would
churn noisily through trailer loads of old trees, shrubs and other
green waste. Tractors with loud reversing beepers rummaged monotonously
through piles of debris for hours upon hour and every now and then an
explosive crashing would be heard as waste was dropped into wagons and
compactors. Eventually Craig proved that the local Council was
breaching EPA noise laws and today largely because of Craig’s
lobbying efforts the facility is much quieter and the people in the
surrounding houses have restored sanity and amenity.
experience cost Craig many months of effort, much money and compromised
his health and happiness. In the process he discovered that there is
very little readily available unbiased do-it-yourself information on
low-cost home and apartment soundproofing. From his own experiences and
from much research, Craig set about creating an easy to follow,
unbiased guide for other people with noise pollution problems. The
result is probably one of the clearest and most helpful guides
discovered that there are many sources of information on soundproofing
but most are endorsing a particular product or technique which might
not be suitable, or which might be too expensive. He also discovered
that there is a lot of incorrect and inaccurate information around.
People are spending good money on techniques and methods which will not
always solve their noise problems.
now lives happily in a very quiet home where he has applied many
low-cost soundproofing techniques and materials and he still finds
himself debating with builders and so called experts about the endless
soundproofing myths that continue to be endorsed.
