Full refurbishments with soundproofing is a favourite for BN3 Property Maintenance because we get to complete overhaul a property and make a real difference. We try to remember to take photos throughout but it doesn't always happen!

This was a 2 bed flat in Brighton and our remit was to:

Replace the kitchen

Soundproof the whole flat (70 sq m)

Take down 2 chimney breasts and stack in the loft

Built new stud walls in place of the old chimney breasts

Double insulate the loft

Replace the basin & WC

Decorate the whole flat

Replace the skirting with new, throughout.

Soundproof the stairs from the flat below.

Fit laminate and carpet throughout the flat.

Install an up-to-date mains board and 8 new sockets


Soundproofing is an asset to any conversion.

We use Cellecta 17T with soundproof wool, acoustic boards and flanking strips. Then the floor is ready for carpet or laminate.

The work took 6 weeks and included many trades:

Plumber, tiler, electrician, carpenter, decorator, plasterer, labourer, brick layer and rubbish removal.
