If you’re a business owner, you may have heard about the benefits of acoustic treatment for rooms, such as acoustic ceilings. These concerns don’t just come into play for obviously sound-sensitive places of business like recording studios—many businesses in many industries, from retail to healthcare to hospitality, can benefit from acoustic treatments that improve the sound profile of a room. When business owners realize how the sound of a room can affect the bottom line, their first impulse (understandably) is to get the job done as quickly and inexpensively as possible. Especially for small business owners, DIY installation comes up as an option—but in the case of fiberglass batt installation (one of the most common methods of sound insulation), DIY is not always the answer. A quick internet search for DIY fiberglass batt installation guides will turn up many results. Although the idea of self-installation is attractive from a cost standpoint, the process isn’t quite as simple or cheap as guides may make it seem. Measuring the space, calculating how much material to purchase, and ordering from a cost-effective source are all hurdles that first-time installers will have to deal with. In addition, making mistakes at the initial stages can lead to significant headaches down the road. These issues may cause the average DIYer to question whether it was worth the cost savings to install the insulation themselves. That’s not even taking into account the actual installation, which can be tedious and labor-intensive work. A small business owner has a million things to worry about, and manually installing acoustic ceilings is a nuisance that would be better left to the pros. The end product will be higher quality and longer lasting, and a business owner can avoid the pitfalls involved with self-installation that can lead to failure down the road—at the worst possible time, when customers are involved.
