Default Door Sound Deadning

What is everyone using to put on the inside of the doors to reduce the tinny sound when the door is closed? Thank you, Ed

Originally the doors had a tar-like material smeared on the inside surface of the skin. The purpose of the tar is increase the mass of the door skin to change its dynamic response to vibration & to change its closing sound.

Sound deadener/undercoating in a spray can works well and won't cost too much.

If you've bought a new stainless steel kitchen sink in the past 10 years or so, they usually come with a few large rectangular pieces of rubber-like, sticky-backed material that's designed to stick onto the bottom and sides of the outer surface for the purpose of sound deadening. I try to swipe one or more of these before the wife notices because they are perfect for repurposing in the application you've asked about Ed. ;-)

Several coats of spray rubberized undercoating from Farn & Fleet. Great for sound and seemes to help with heat transfer

I like Fatmat for sound deadening and insulation.
