Please don't wait till the last minute !!

This seems to be a problem throughout the building trades, waiting till the last minute to order the soundproofing materials. It is always better to plan at least 2 weeks in advance when you have a soundproofing project. A lot of builders and contractors remember the soundproofing at the very last minute or a new homeowner requests soundproofing just before the sheetrock goes up on his walls and ceilings. When this happens everyone scrambles to get the order to the site on time.
When planning your building project, always try to put soundproofing at the forefront of your plans. In todays noisy world, it has become essential to have adequate soundproofing throughout your entire home, this is especially true with new construction. It's beneficial to have the soundproofing materials onsite and ready to be installed. Many times a developer or contractor will put these materials up for you at a nominal fee if those materials are readily available.
When you wait till the last minute, shipping rates inflate dramatically. Even small items like caulk and tape can be in the $100's of dollars if you need them the next business day, not to mention Saturday deliveries. You may need to take out a second mortgage on your new house just to pay the shipping.
What this boils down to is serious and timely planning on the part of builders, contractors, and developers. That being said, if you do have a rush order, we'll hustle to get it out the same day it's ordered and we will do our utmost to keep those shipping costs to a minimum. That's my perspective, what's yours?
