Inside Marcus Hiles’ 15,000 lavish rental residences throughout Texas, cellulose sound insulation gives tenants their own den away from the outside world. While the communities exhibit the developer’s plan of community-based features, including shared business centers and championship golf courses, Hiles understands the need for residents’ private home life—one without any audible interference from the world outside or next door.

While most insulation provides a small amount of noise reduction by inhibiting sound from traveling through walls or floors, dense packing cellulose weakens volumes by limiting the passage of sound along cavities inside the building’s structure. According to the Cellulose Insulation Manufacturers Association, cellulose insulation products maintain an NRC (Noise Reduction Coefficient) rating of around .80 or higher, meaning that it absorbs 80% or more of the sound that attempts to pass through. Roughly three times denser than standard fiberglass, this insulation affords a drastic improvement over the other most common type of home insulation.
