One of the reasons you bought a home in Los Angeles is because you fell in love with its iconic beauty and historical architecture. Perhaps it was the lavish interior decorating that initially attracted you, or maybe it was being able to envision the horse-drawn streetcars that used to dot the landscape during the turn of the 20th century.
Whatever path you may have taken to home ownership in one of the most charming cities in the world, you probably weren't thinking about the removal and replacement of old, dirty, ineffective insulation. It is, however, a very important part of creating a safe and happy home environment for your family.
Insulation today isn't just about reducing your cooling costs or keeping the chilly air out when the mercury dips a bit in the winter. The modern family requires a home with soundproof walls. Pure Eco Inc. is available to assist with all of your Soundproofing needs including sound proofing of your walls, call us now at (877) 870-7998 to see how we can help!
Every room in your home was created with a specific purpose in mind. Whether it's a nursery where you want to keep noise from activities in the rest of the house out or a media room where you want to keep the sound of music or video games from seeping into your neighbor's bedroom when he is trying to sleep, soundproof walls are the solution.
The type of soundproofing insulation you choose, along with proper installation, is key to keeping unwanted noises from travelling. The most effective soundproofing insulation on the market today is Roxul, and it is the only insulation used by Pure Eco. It will fit in easily between your studs like other insulation, but it contains a life-changing component, a unique material called stone wool.
Discovered as a natural by-product of volcanic activity, it is reproduced by combining basalt (stone) and steel slag (steel wool) through a unique process. This stone wool is used to create two separate products, Roxul Safe 'N' Sound for interior walls, and Roxul Comfort Batt for walls that have an exterior side.
When considering whether to create soundproof walls in your home, it is important to note the many other benefits that are a part of installing Roxul products in your home. In addition to the top-tier sound eliminating and dampening components, the list of other advantages is quite impressive:

Blown insulation is just that; it is installed with a blower hose connected to an insulation truck, and it can be used in any area of your home. It is especially helpful for insulating hard to reach or odd shaped areas.
Blown insulation is available in various types:
Batts insulation is less expensive and easier to install than blown insulation, although it may not fill the spaces as tightly. However, if batts insulation is correctly installed, it is adequate for most insulation needs. A vapor barrier backer is a good idea to prevent condensation from accumulating. Among other details, they have to be faced in the correct direction based on your climate zone. At Pure Eco, we know all the details necessary for a successful installation.
Common batts insulation materials include:
Mineral wool is much safer than fiberglass in the event of an accidental exposure. While not classified as carcinogenic, there is still a question as to whether or not fiberglass can cause cancer, while mineral wool is clearly classified as non-carcinogenic. Cellulose, since it is made from paper, is not fire resistant, and it makes dust.
When it comes to most insulation projects, including soundproofing, mineral wool, which is contained in Roxul insulation, is your best choice.
The R stands for the Resistance of the insulation material necessary for different climates. Although an R-Value can range from as low as 19 to as high as over 50, the standard requirements are R-30 for warm climates, R-38 for temperate climates, and R-49 for cold climates.
We at Pure Eco use Certainteed Certified insulation products, because they remain effective for a longer time frame than other brands, and our installation specialists can evaluate your individual R-Value needs for your specific project.
Successful soundproof wall installation begins with selecting the right insulation material, but how that material is installed is equally important. We have a 100% satisfaction rate in Los Angeles and the entire Southern California area because:
Your home should be your sanctuary, a place where you can leave the stress of the outside world at your door and envelop yourself in peace and tranquility. Soundproofing simply adds an extra layer between you and all those demands.
Perhaps you need a man cave or she shack to escape the pressures of a busy lifestyle and regroup for a few minutes each day. Maybe you don't want the sound of your kids playing in the game room to drown out the sound of a movie you've been dying to see. Or you like to throw a party every now and again with no worries about complaints from the neighbors. You might need a place to study or to relax in a nice, hot bath with the only sound you hear is your favorite playlist.
The possibilities are endless.
Fortunately, we at Pure Eco know exactly which soundproofing strategy to use for any possible soundproofing usage you can create, and we are dedicated to designing the best solutions for your individual needs.
We can begin the soundproofing installation process by removing your existing insulation if it is wet or causing some other form of hazard. In most cases, however, we recommend leaving your old insulation intact, because it saves time, reduces waste, and increases the overall soundproofing by providing better filling in the spaces between the studs.
Doubling up the drywall is another option for increased soundproofing, along with installing horizontal channels between the studs so your drywall will screw directly into metal and further increase sound dampening. Application of acoustic sealant caulk is a finishing touch that can also help minimize noise.
The Roxul Safe 'N' Sound and the Roxul Comfort Batt we discussed earlier has been proven to be the most effective sound barrier material, backed by scientific research. Sonic researcher, Timothy Hawkins, presented a detailed report to the faculty at California Polytechnic State University in 2014 that explains why certain materials are porous absorbers. This means that sound can be both absorbed and nullified with this material.
Roxul technology takes Hawkins' research even further by actually creating spaces within its insulation for this process to take place. Roxul insulation is manufactured specifically for use in soundproofing.
Because it's a porous absorber, Roxul insulation material transforms sound into heat, which is an efficient way to keep heating costs to a minimum when the temperature dips down into the 40's during Winter evenings here in Southern California.
At Pure Eco, we look forward to guiding you through the process of designing your soundproofing project and completing it for you using state-of-the-art techniques and materials.

I already had my main attic done last year by a different company that did not do what they said they would and ended up damaging my ceiling. Decided to go with a different company this time around for a smaller attic of an addition that isn’t directly connected to the main attic.
The attic had no insulation at all (built in the 1930s). It needed debris vacuumed out, rodent proofing, and R-38 batt insulation.
After getting quotes from several folks, decided to go with Pure Eco. Quick turnaround, reasonably priced, good professional crew lead by Martin, and clear communication through my assigned contact Jasmine. Discussion and quote was based on photos I took. Contract and payment was handled all through e-doc services. And they made sure to give me an overview of the work done before leaving. The difference in temperature was a noticeable improvement that night.
Our home needed some serious insulation and duct work done. It was awful and quite old (the insulation shrunk to approximately 3″). We called three companies for a quote, and we only saw two. We decided to go with them, before seeing the third, because of the amazing deal they offered and because they would be able to do it immediately. Ben was our sales guy and he was more than helpful and extremely knowledgeable. He made sure to inform us that they are licensed, bonded, and have workers’ compensation insurance, which kept me at ease.
The following day was the installation. Ben told us that they would be there from 8AM – 7PM (latest). They arrived on time, and completed the job by 3PM!!! I was shocked and thoroughly pleased. William, the supervisor of our job, was extremely friendly, and his crew was very professional. They cleaned up their mess; it looked as clean as when they arrived.
I highly recommend them and think that anyone that uses them will do so as well. Hi
I am a firm believer in referrals from friends when it comes to anything for my home and this company was a good referral for sure. My husband and I love Pure Eco and would definitely recommend them to everyone.
They have very professional installers and managers. Everything went smoothly from the scheduling to the end of the job. They use new machines and trucks (I tend to judge a book by it’s cover, unfortunately).
We had them replace our duct system and they installed Radiant barrier. They came in and did their job and left with no mess behind. Definitely give them a try!
We recently bought a house in Canyon Country and the garage was completely exposed and got extremely hot this time of year. When it was 90 degrees outside, the garage was well over 100 degrees. I got quotes from about a half dozen companies but was the most impressed with Pure Eco, especially their representative Sara. She was very helpful and she worked with me on the quote and gave me a lot of of great suggestions as to the best way to get our garage as cool as possible while staying within our limited budget. She recommended insulating the ceiling and front gable and then putting in radiant barrier. Her team came out and did the job in one afternoon and cleaned up afterwards. And now our garage is a LOT cooler. I can definitely recommend Pure Eco.
