Can you reinstall a program if you already have it on your computer and if so will it do anything?

Yes you can re-install programs that are already on your computer. What happens depends on the installer. A good installer will automatically switch to maintenance mode if the version you are installing is the same as the one that is already installed -- allowing you to modify the installation (add or remove components). If there is no maintenance mode it should simply repair the installation if anything is missing, or let you know the software is already installed. If the versions are different, the installer should offer to remove the existing installation if it is older, or alert you if it is newer (typically you have to manually uninstall newer versions before installing older versions). A bad installer will simply install over the existing installation regardless, however the complexity of the software will determine if this is a good thing or not.

Can you install a dog door by cutting from bottom of the door or should there be a space?

You should leave a space. Most pet doors instruct this, and will have a piece across the bottom intended to settle into the existing door. Cutting from the bottom of the door severely compromises the structural integrity of the door, as well, and may cause eventual splitting or other damage to the door.

How do you use resilient bar to soundproof a room?

Resilient Bars are essential to help bring suspended timber floors into compliance with the building regulations for noise control through converted separating floors for flats. Used in connection with other sound insulating materials we supply, the bars will create an effective acoustic break between the bottom of the existing joists and the ceiling. If not fitted directly beneath the floor joists, Sound Reducing Resilient Bars can be supported by 50mm square battens screwed to the underside of any existing ceiling. (See installation instructions above). Plasterboard is then screwed to the corrugated section of the bar using our self drilling screws and for best results; two layers totalling 30mm thickness should be installed. Alternatively, two layers of 12.5mm plasterboard Sound Block can be used. A greater sound insulation improvement can be gained if a min of our Acoustic Mineral Wool (AMW50) is installed between the battens before fixing the plasterboard. When installed beneath an existing ceiling with AMW50 and 30mm of plasterboard applied, improvements in both airborne noise and impact sound would normally be well in excess of 300% this can be further enhanced if our Acoustic Membrane is sandwiched between the plasterboard layers.
