Default Someone to build a soundproof room in NJ

Hi. I'm new. I'm looking for someone to hire who will build a soundproof room in my garage in NJ; I live in a townhouse and my neighbors are really bothered by my drums. I've seen all of the invaluable info here and elsewhere on the web about how to do it, but I have lower back issues that make it impossible for me to do the building myself.

I'm looking online but having trouble finding someone who seems familiar with soundproofing specifically for drums... I've seen booths for sale at around $12 grand all told but that's way out of my price range. Like I've said, I've seen plenty of instructions and tons of helpful advice and products, but I really need someone to build it.

So, I thought I would just ask here if anyone is in the North Jersey area and knows of someone who would do a really great job that I can trust to do it right.

I apologize if this subject is in the wrong forum, but it seemed the most suitable place.

Thanks!

Jackie

PS - I'm just coming from electronic drums which were really nice, but not my cup of tea. Just bought a Gretsch Catalina Club Jazz kit which I love... and can't wait to play without annoying my little community

I'd ask around at some of your local recording studios or shops. Call up some contractors tell them what you are looking for and see what they come up with, if you've done your research you will know who is actually the right one for the job when you meet them. Heck with all the info available here I'd likely be suggesting to them what to use.

Just out of curiosity how big a room and what is your budget?
