Hi everyone, We're thinking of putting hardwood down in our common dining room. Can anyone share their experience with this? How is it compared to other products for sound transmission (such as marmoleum)? Thanks for your help.

I'll ask the list and will cc you with any answers I get. Lydia Lydia, How do I go about sending a message to the cohousing chat room (or whatever it is) that you mentioned today? I will try to get some feedback on the sound transmission comparison between marmoleum and hardwood. To date I have asked flooring people- but they are just interested in selling their own product so I don't trust their objectivity. In any case, I have not been told of any significant difference between hardwood and marmoleum - they both have a smooth finish that is hard enough that reflects most of the sound that hits it. Cushion flooring apparently has some benefit - but we definitely don't want this material in the common house for durability reasons. I think whether we go with marmoleum or hardwood that we must be anticipating the need to place sound absorbing ceiling materials and/or panels.
