Basement ceiling sound insulation

Post by tomashek » Sat Sep 09, 2017 7:32 am

Hi there, finishing basement and adding sound insulation on the basement ceiling. Do I need to use poly on the ceiling to cover it, or just the drywall? Not sure if installing poly on the basement ceiling won't lead to some moisture problems...
Thanks Thomas

You won't need vapour barrier, that is only needed on insulated exterior walls/ceiling.

Yes I agree, no vapour barrier is needed there.

Alright, thank for the advice.
BTW, I just finished building a shed, with great help from Shannon's youtube videos! It was great to see what and how things need to be done, I can't thank you enough Shannon!
