Sound Insulating Underlayment – Hard Surface Flooring

(1.)  Introduction:

All of the interior floor of your Unit must be covered by a surface flooring material and sound insulating underlayment ("Flooring System").  Any hard surface flooring material (stone, wood, cork, bamboo, porcelain or ceramic tile, etc.) may be used provided such installation complies with the sound insulation requirements contained in this section.  Carpet over approved pad or cushion backed floor vinyl are not required to be installed over a flooring system.  A bare or stained and sealed slab floor and similar finishes are not permitted.

The Flooring System and installation methods that you select will have an impact on what your neighbors hear as you, your family and guests walk, move or drop items within your Unit.  An adjacent neighbor has the right to require that your floor be tested for sound insulation with the expenses of the tests and any required replacement being paid by you if the floor does not meet the required Field Impact Insulation Class ("FIIC") rating shown in section (2.) (b) (1) below. If the floor meets the required rating, the complainant shall pay the costs of testing.

(2.)  Submission of Sound Insulation Design.

No Flooring System construction shall commence until the information required by this section is submitted to and approved by the Board of Directors ("Board") as required. In the event that construction commences prior to approval, such Flooring System materials may, at the option of the Board, be removed at Owner's expense.

a. Construction Drawing. The Owner shall provide a construction or architectural drawing clearly indicating the type of Flooring System to be used as well as the method by which it will be installed, including a copy of installation instructions from the underlayment manufacturer. The drawing must clearly identify all materials, their composition and thickness. Additionally, the Owner shall submit a "plan view" drawing showing the location of all adjacent partitions, cabinets, etc., with referenced section details indicating the method of isolating the Flooring System along its entire perimeter.

b. Test Standards. All new and replacement Flooring Systems shall meet the standards contained in this section:

 

(1) Standards at Installation. An Owner's selected Flooring System must meet a minimum FIIC rating of 50 as limited to the Unit's original floor plan.  Installation shall be made according to the submitted manufacturer’s recommendations; such recommendations should include provisions to prevent lateral sound transmissions between flooring and walls, cabinetry, or other fixed surfaces.  Terrace level units are not required to add sound insulating underlayment as part of their flooring systems, but conditions to prevent lateral sound transmissions to adjacent units must be met as in other units.  Installation is subject to inspection by Association personnel and appropriate authorities.  Reasonable evidence must be presented at the time of application for installation that the Flooring System will meet these standards. Reasonable evidence may include: (a) a Flooring System included on the list of Flooring Systems believed by the Board to meet FIIC standards if properly installed (the “Association List"), (b) a certified onsite test performed in Owner's Unit, or (c) a published certified test made in a building substantially similar to La Princesa over an 8" or less concrete floor with an exposed slab ceiling below. All tests to meet these standards shall conform to and be consistent with standards of the National Voluntary Accreditation Program (NVLAP) for ASTM E1007 or equivalent.

(2) Exceptions. Flooring Systems previously approved and properly installed prior to the establishment of the standard shown in section (2.) (b) (1) shall not be required to meet test standards until replaced, and no Owner shall be required to remove such Flooring System.

(3.)  Approval of Flooring, Underlayment and Installation Design.

a. Approval by La Princesa Board of Directors. If a proposed Flooring System has not been previously approved but reasonably appears to meet FIIC standards, either the Owner or the Association Manager may submit the Flooring System design and evidence of compliance to the Board, and the Board will make a final adjudication to approve or disapprove the design. The Board's decision is final.

b. Owner's Responsibility for Sound Insulation. Although the Board approves installation of a Flooring System, the Owner is solely responsible and accountable for the continuing performance of the installed Flooring System pursuant to Section (4.) below. Acoustical performance and continuing structural integrity of a Flooring System depend upon the components of the Flooring System, the quality of the materials and the effectiveness of the installation.

(4.) Noise Impact Complaints and Required Testing.

If an adjacent Owner files a written complaint with the Board alleging that a Flooring System does not meet the required noise insulation standards, and after investigation by the Manager, the Board determines that the complaint is bona fide and cannot be resolved between the parties, then the Owner and the Complainant shall each deposit with the Association the full cost of an onsite test(s). The Board then shall arrange for FIIC test(s) to be performed at the Owner's expense by a testing agency accredited through the National Voluntary Accreditation Program (NVLAP) in accordance with ASTM E1007.

If the test(s) fail(s) to meet the FIIC ratings shown in section (2.) (b) (1) then the Owner will be required to modify or remove the Flooring System. The total cost of the test(s) and change(s) to the Flooring System shall be the responsibility of the Owner. After modifying the Flooring System to achieve compliance, the Owner shall deposit with the Association the full cost of the FIIC retest(s) per ASTM E1007.

If the initial test meets the FIIC standards as described in section (2.) (b) (1) the cost of the test shall be borne by the Complainant, and no modification will be required. If the Owner of the floor fails or refuses to submit the Flooring System to this testing and/or fails to resolve the sound attenuation problem, enforcement of this Section (4.) will be the responsibility of the Board. The Board can require that the Flooring System be removed or modified to meet the FIIC standard, with the Owner paying all costs of compliance, including legal expenses.
