From the Back Cover:

``This is the most comprehensive book on residential sound control that I have read--[it] includes all the sound control information that anyone would need for building in sound control in residential construction--single family or multifamily.''--John DiCesare, Residential Building Consultant. More people are spending more time at home making more noise--yet they want quiet environments. This is the only book on the market that tells designers, planners, architects, and builders how to give homeowners and apartment-dwellers the quiet they crave. Supplying complete details on reducing unwanted sound in all types of residential buildings, from single-family to multifamily, this authoritative guide clearly explains: methods and principles of noise control--and solutions to particular noise problems using specific techniques; the latest materials and tools used in noise and sound control; new federal, state, industry, and ASTM codes and standards--and why they make the ``quest for quiet'' more challenging; myths, misconceptions and the mysteries of residential acoustics; the latest testing techniques. The manual offers numerous case studies that show how noise control problems are solved using a variety of acoustic and noise control techniques. Moreover, it provides handy design guide worksheets, sound transmission data charts, and a noise control checklist that facilitate the design and construction of quieter residences. Noise Control Manual for Residential Buildings is straightforward enough to be used by the average do-it-yourselfer (it avoids complex mathematics), yet so complete it will satisfy the requirements of knowledgeable building professionals. It is a comprehensive guide to designing, specifying, testing, and retrofitting residences to meet new standards and satisfy the need for those most elusive environmental attributes--peace and quiet.
