We live in a apartment building and the above unit had floor tile installed more than a year ago. Since then the level of noises in our apartment has become unbearable. The ceiling and windows shake even from normal walking from tenants above. Tiles were installed in kitchen and bathroom upstairs unit, but we are not sure if the Landlord followed proper building procedures and actually installed enough sound insulation. Before the tiles were installed there it was carpet and little or not noises coming from the unit above. There is not peace in our apartment since than. What can we do? Does the Landlord have a legal obligation to consider the noise below before make improvements to units that disturb other tenants? How can we know if proper renovation procedure was used? How do we know If there is any or enough sound insulation installed underneath the tile floor? Can we can an agency or home inspector?

Any info would be deeply appreciate!

Thanks: ok:

Try calling 311 and ask for Building and Safety. You can report a complaint. You can also try asking for the Housing Department.
For help with noise go to Noise Pollution Clearinghouse, quieting noise pollution
