Which type of flooring and soundproofing are best?
I would like to replace the flooring in my suite running from front to back; kitchen through dining room/living room and hallway. I have a basement suite so would like to soundproof with underlay, caulking and installation type. I also have a small dog. Currently there is a high density high-end laminate in the kitchen and carpet in the other areas. I want to get rid of the carpet and change to a hard flooring. This will be my one and only chance to do any sound muffling and I will not change this flooring again as I am just retiring, so want something that will last. Any suggestions appreciated.
