    Can you give an estimate of how much this project cost you?

  2. It was about $125 for the 1/8 adhesive backed MLV does not include shipping, the typical door would require 18 square feet. Weatherstripping $10 to $20, optional QuietCoat $60, skip the foam, tin tiles. $100 for 8 basic tin tiles. It will be more expensive if you chose a finish.

    If you have any more questions just email me at

  3. You can also upgrade to a thicker MLV if you thing your door can handle the weight.

  4. Please send photos of your project, so I can share it with my readers.

    Just stumbled upon your blog/tutorial - the door looks fabulous! Soundproofing or not, I love your idea of using the tin panels! Great job!

    I want to insulate an interior bedroom door but want to do it as cheaply as possible. It's a hollow wood door with a large space 1.5" between the bottom of the door and floor. The expensive vinyl is out, but do you think I will see a noticeable improvement with some kind of a door sweep and weather stripping around the perimeter?

    As well what do you think about using expanding foam on the inside of the hollow door, worth the effort?

    Shouldnt be gluing anything onto a condo door, because it can void your condo insurance and in case of a fire started from you unit, you could be sued by the condo and your insurance company might not pay a single cent. Consult with the condo board first to get permission.
