SPC History

The Soundproofing Company was established to offer the industry a consolidated source for core soundproofing products and information. You’ll find that we don’t offer dozens of materials that you simply don’t need. Our soundproofing products are the highest quality and the lowest cost available. Please shop and compare. We offer the Soundproofing Articles you need, the Soundproof products that work at a commercial price structure.

We’ve been soundproofing since 1999 and contribute daily to 25 different online community help forums on the topic of soundproofing. Read more about our contributions…

We have extensive construction experience dating back to 1983. We also have years of experience acoustically testing walls, floors, and ceilings both in the lab and in the field. Read more about our tests…

We know which products work, how well they work, and why they work because we’ve thoroughly researched all options we recommend through test reports and acoustic resources. Just as important, with our unique background we know exactly how all the construction materials fit together.

Company Philosophy

In 2008 we found that before calling us, 1 in 7 consumers wanted to purchase or had already purchased the wrong soundproofing products. A noise problem isn’t something you have to live with. Soundproofing Company specializes in low cost, real world solutions. No hype, no high prices, just the high quality products you need to solve the noise problems you have.

What We Offer “Noise Control for Real Life”

We obviously can’t come to you and make sure things are installed correctly, however we can provide direct phone consultation as often as you and your contractor need. A picture is worth a thousand words, and we have created a helpful series of proprietary Soundproofing Installation Manuals (SIMs). These are copyrighted materials that we provide free of charge after product purchase. We encourage phone calls, email, and photos and will answer any questions that arise during construction. You will find that the real questions start after construction begins and we are with you all the way until the paint dries.

Tech Support

Ted White has had a long interest in science, receiving a Bachelor’s Degree with dual majors in Biology and Chemistry with a minor in Physics from The State University of New York. A twist of fate led him to start a career in Building Materials in 1983. He has been working with Builders and Architects for 26 years now.

Ted started building a home theater back in 1998. The lack of proper sound isolating materials and techniques led Ted to start supplying soundproofing materials to others. This interest in high performance soundproofing eventually led Ted to his involvement with the Green Glue Company in 2004. Green Glue quickly became synonymous with high performance and low cost soundproofing.

Identifying that the market needed a commercially oriented distribution channel that offered a comprehensive product assortment, simple straight advice while delivering low cost materials, Ted formed the Soundproofing Company with John Hile. Although they sell many products, the Soundproofing Company became the world’s largest distributor of Green Glue in 2008.

John Hile

John HileJohn Hile comes from a lifelong music background which drew him to the field of sound as a science. John attended Wayne State University in Detroit, MI majoring in Music and Communications. It was the powerful music scene that brought him to Minnesota where he currently runs the Minneapolis Soundproofing Company office.

John’s experience in sound stems from years of both laboratory and field sound testing of various residential and commercial building systems following ASTM procedures and using NVLAP certified facilities. John also had the privilege to work with Ted White at the Green Glue Company during much of the product’s testing history, learning much more about sound isolation.

Having been an experienced AIA CE instructor, John now enjoys sharing his knowledge to help clients of all kinds achieve their desired results for the Soundproofing Company. While working directly with Ted the two quickly found that they shared the same common philosophies of simple, straightforward, and fair practices, leading to their joining forces in 2007.

“I  feel that the soundproofing industry is full of bad and misleading information that has been repeated over and over. I’m hear to provided the visual blueprint to soundproofing installation. The solutions that the Soundproofing Company are straight forward and follow solid scientific data. I like that any general contractor can sell and install these solutions as an upgrade to any construction package.”
