Thinking of throwing a bash in your garage and invite friends over or making it a music practice room but you are scared that you might annoy your neighbors playing loud music?

What if I told you that you could there was a way around this? In this article, I’m going to show you how to cover garage walls for the party and play loud music or do any other “loud activity” without disturbing your neighbors.

Soundproofing garage walls for party

I suppose that you already know what is soundproofing. Sound travels in two ways: through the air (airborne noise) and materials vibration (impact noise). To accomplish your DIY soundproofing, it important to understand the type of sound you want to deaden. In this particular case, it’s impact noise.

Focus on weak points before sound deadening the wall

To keep the whole process as cheap as possible, it’s recommended to spend little material on your soundproofing project as possible. So you will require to focus only on the weak parts of the garage walls you suspect might let sounds out.

By weak- I mean dealing with any cracks or gaps on the existing walls. Cracks are the biggest culprits and might allow unwanted sounds in and out easily. Sealing these cracks requires very simple and quick fixes.

You need to buy an adhesive like green glue and apply it on the cracks on the wall. Green glue works by converting sound energy into heat energy. But don’t worry the heat generated in this case is negligible and won’t melt down your house.

1.   Heavy noise deadening curtains

I know it might sound awkward but trust me, noise reducing curtains work in sound dampening. While they are ideal for installing on the windows, you can also hang them along the wall, and they will do an excellent job in sound conditioning. If you’ve never purchased these before, it’s recommended to pick ones made from heavy material because the more the mass, the more the curtains will be effective in soundproofing.

However, if you’re on a budget and find investing in blackout curtains an expensive venture, you can read this article on how to make soundproof curtains from old rugs in your house. And if you’re still in doubt on how effective soundproofing curtains are, please read this article.

2.   Acoustic panels

How To Cover Garage Walls For Party 7 DIY Hacks That Work!!How To Cover Garage Walls For Party 7 DIY Hacks That Work!! Acoustic panels are effective in noise reduction because they absorb sound before it can bounce off the wall. Not only will the panels help in reducing sound transmission through the garage walls but they will also improve the sound quality inside the garage. Acoustic panels are made of porous expanded polypropylene and are available in different shapes, sizes, and thickness. Panels for home use are covered in cloths with different colors to choose from. It’s also important to note that some manufacturers offer custom printed panels- so you can easily transform this soundproofing panel into a piece of wall art. See the latest price on Amazon.

The panels attach with Velcro or clips, and the installation process is a simple DIY fix.

3.   Mass Loaded Vinyl

You can install on the floor, but in this case, you will hang on the garage walls to help in deadening sounds. For it to give maximum efficiency, it’s recommended to sandwich it between two layers of drywall. See mass loaded vinyl price on Amazon

4.   Install some Drywall

Well, this is the most expensive option in my list of different ways to cover garage walls for the party, but it’s worth the investment. While it’s a bit expensive, requires some technical information to install it, it good to note that it’s highly effective in sound absorption.

The drywall will add more mass to your old thin existing garage walls, and this way prevents noise leaking in and out of your garage room.

You will need to invest in drywall the same size as the existing wall in your garage. So grab a tape measure and measure the size of the wall you need to soundproof before placing an order online.

Before installing the drywall, first, make sure that you seal all the holes and cracks on the existing wall. You can use green glue sealant– if it’s not available you can use these alternatives adhesives.

5.   Try foam mats

Well, I know that drywall can be an expensive investment, and if that’s the case for you, here is an effective alternative you should give a shot. Using foam mats will deaden sound without doing any modification to the existing structure.

You can choose this option especially if you live in an apartment or a rented unit where you’re not required to do any remodeling whatsoever. Additionally, because these mats work as insulators, they will prevent thermal loss. They are resistant to oil and gasoline.

Unlike some polyurethane foams you will find on the market today, these foam mats don’t release any bad smell, and they have an adhesive back for easy installation.

6. Hang moving blankets

Moving blankets have been used for years by moving companies to protect their client’s furniture against any damage. They are made of heavy materials and hence the reason they are effective in sound deadening.

Before buying make sure you pick ones made from heavy materials because of the denser the materials, the more effective. Additionally, pick ones with grommets for easier installation.

On covering garage walls for the party

As you can see, all the above-mentioned techniques are simple DIY fixes you can accomplish alone or with the help of your friends. Most garage today are constructed with very thin walls, and this is a major cause of noise conflicts between families. I  trust that the above simple fixes will help you get started, take your party to the next level with causing noise problem to your neighborhood.

Acoustics and soundproofing are not the primary consideration in the blueprint of an architectural project. Nobody notices any issue until the building is occupied with real people living there: until babies start to cry or until a wannabee teenage rocker becomes your neighbor. Likewise, the same issue happens in companies, where offices are deployed in large clear spaces: in one room, there is a meeting, and in the open space, employees are providing support to customers by phone. Therefore, unluckily, most of the solutions, are aftermarket solutions. It is difficult to implement them after the project is handed over. I explain thoroughly soundproofing projects that you can do at home or in your business.
