Hardwood Floors Are Popular, But Some Condo Owners Are Having Second Thoughts

A client of mine fell in love with a condo, in part because of its hardwood flooring.  But within weeks of moving in, he’s now thinking of selling.  Why? Because the hardwood flooring in the unit above him appears overly effective at transmitting the sound of both human and canine footfalls.  Apparently the neighbor below him has noticed the same thing and has complained about the sound my client makes when he and his dog move about on their hardwood floors.

This raises an interesting question: Is there a reasonable way to construct a building’s floors so as to mitigate the transmission of sound from hardwood flooring?
