With the 2019 purchase of soundproofing company Sonic-Shield, New England Soundproofing becomes one of the largest full service soundproofing companies in the US. New England Soundproofing of Easton, Massachusetts has taken its two-year old partnership with Sonic-Shield LLC of Port Richey, Florida to a new level by acquiring the company in an asset purchase agreement. New England Soundproofing immediately gains an expanded footprint by acquiring Sonic-Shield’s national marketing reach and customer base while Sonic-Shield benefits from the manufacturing synergies provided by New England Soundproofing for their rapidly growing national brand of REVRB ™acoustic panels.
Additionally, to expand their east coast footprint focusing on commercial and residential sales, New England Soundproofing has created a new division, also based in Port Richey, called Florida-Soundproofing.

Boston City Council is exploring ways to lessen the impact of “unreasonable and excessive noise” on the city’s residents. City Councilor At-Large Althea Garrison filed an order last Wednesday for a hearing to discuss better managing Boston’s noise levels and amending the City’s code.
Garrison said in an emailed statement that in order to preserve the safety and wellbeing of Boston’s constituents, the City Council must work with other departments to improve the city’s laws on noise.
“I have an obligation to protect the public health, safety and peace and quiet of our residents,” Garrison said. “So I have asked that we hold a hearing … to reduce unreasonable and excessive noise levels and to partner with the Air Pollution Control Commission to work for safer and more reasonable levels in the City of Boston.”

I recently had New England Soundproofing complete work in the master bedroom and guest room in my condo, hoping to limit some of the noise coming from our upstairs neighbors (our neighbors are great and very respectful, but our building seems to amplify even small sounds). In short, I'm very happy with my experience working with NES and, more importantly, with the results. The whole team was really great to work with - no pressure to move forward with the project after they completed the estimate, they were very helpful and accommodating when it came time to schedule the project, and the guys who did the actual work were reliable and conscientious. Now that the project is completely done, I'm happy to say that NES's soundproofing system works really, really well. Between the acoustical insulation, the decoupling system that "disconnects" the ceiling from the joists, the rubber sound barrier, the acoustical caulk, and the double layer of sheetrock the sound difference is dramatic. Whereas before we could actually hear our neighbors snoring and their phones ringing, heavy footfalls and airborne noise from upstairs are now barely noticeable. It's a huge relief. Long story short, if noise from neighbors is affecting your quality of life, this is the way to go. PROS - Everyone at NES was very responsive, professional, and great to work with. - They completed the work ahead of schedule (they estimated 5 days of work, but were done in 4). - The results are really good. We tried basic/budget soundproofing (additional insulation, heavier sheetrock) at my last place and it didn't make any difference. This system actually works. - To keep costs down, we had a standard general contractor complete the ceiling demo at the start of the project and the reinstallation of the ceilings after NES did their thing. NES worked with our contractor directly to make sure he knew the best practices for installing the heavier sheetrock and Green Glue. CONS - It's not cheap. That's not to say it's overpriced, it's just that the materials and the per hour cost of acoustical specialists is more than your run of the mill home improvement project. But, if your budget allows it and/or you really need relief, it's worth it. - Yelp!

Charred Oak Tavern -
Hi Joe & Team,
One of the things that we missed completely when opening up our new restaurant, was the sound. It's just something you don't think of! Our beautiful restaurant is adorned by reclaimed wood, piping, copper, reclaimed brick and industrial-type fixtures; all of which are hard surfaces. This caused even the slightest busy evening to be VERY noisy. It was pointed out to us that we should invest in sound absorbing panels -- WHAT ARE THOSE?! After much research, we came across New England Soundproofing. We gave them a call and were put through to Joe Drago. Joe instantly knew exactly what we were talking about, and with his expertise and knowledge, made us feel that New England Soundproofing was the way to go. Joe personally came to our establishment and started measuring the space, and told us exactly what we needed without any overage. "I'm only going to suggest what you need." And Joe was absolutely right!! Joe's team had a limited time frame of when they could work, due to the fact that we are open for lunch and dinner, and we didn't want to disturb our guests, but in 2 days, all of the panels were in. The first day, when only half the panels were installed, you could already hear a huge difference! By the time the job was finished, it was truly like night & day. Our guests immediately started praising us for moving forward with the sound panels, and one guest in particular said, "The only reason I came back to visit with you again, is because of your post on social media, stating that you had your sound panels installed!" We were so glad to hear this. One of the best parts? You can now clearly hear the awesome playlist that we have playing in the background! ;) 100% totally worth it! Thank you so much to New England Soundproofing for a job well done! Your work even brought a guest back to us!
Thank you so much,
The Charred Oak Tavern Management Team
Joe - it's a long write-up, but please take whatever pieces from it you wish :)
