A temporary pressurized wall is a wall that is not damaging the floor, ceiling and existing walls. Our temporary wall is not attached to the existing structure by nails, screws, glue or anything else.

 2. What is the difference between temporary wall and a real regular wall ?

A real regular wall is permanently attached to the ceiling, floor and existing walls with adhesives and screws, and creating an extremely messy and expensive repair cost for a removal. The owner would also have to hire an expeditor and architect to file the changes with the Department of Buildings which also significantly increases the price of the project. Our temporary wall does not have any screws or adhesives to hold it up hence no damage is done to the apartment. Another difference between regular walls and our temporary walls is that a our walls have small moldings on the seams between the wallboards every 4′ these moldings are very thin 1/8”, so it is not so noticeable.

Yes, soundproof is an option for a pressurized wall and for a loft wall. We used R-13 sound reducing material in our pressurized walls. The R-13 soundproof is equivalent to what is used in modern construction practices, rendering the wall equivalent to what you have at home. If you need a greater sound barrier we have other options.
