In response to Re: cast Iron pipe vs PVC
: I am having a second story bath added and am woundering if it is worth the additional expense to have the riser constructed with cast iron instead of PVC. My only reason would be sound as it is next to a bedroom.

Some new houses or 2nd floor additions are spec'd to have cast iron in all first floor or living space walls/ceilings; kitchens, bedrooms, family rooms, dining rooms, etc.
An added item you can request or do yourself would be to install extra insulation around the cast iron drainage piping for an added sound barrier.
