Soundproofer Aldershot Hampshire (GU11): If you're worried by the level of noise that's infiltrating your Aldershot property, be it in a home office, bedroom, living room or studio, you should look into putting in some soundproofing. In some cases you could be investigating soundproofing so you don't disturb others in the house from a children's room, music room or home cinema. Whatever your requirements are, soundproofing will provide you with peace of mind.
First of all we need to learn just how sound travels and is transmitted before we are able to identify ways to reduce any excessive noise escaping from or intruding into your home.
Basically, sound travels in two ways throughout your home:
1. In open spaces by movement of air.
2. Through the vibration of objects or materials.
Despite the fact that sound also travels through water, unless you're looking to isolate noises from an aquarium or swimming pool, we'll only be concerned at how to soundproof rooms within a building.
SOUND TRAVEL THROUGH THE AIR
Sounds can be transferred out of and into a room through ill fitted windows, open ducting, gaps around doors and even light fittings and electrical sockets. All noise and sound will initiate movement and vibration of the air molecules, and it is this that we hear. Irrespective of the source of the noise; music playing, kids playing, aeroplanes, nearby traffic or machinery, all sounds are created and transmitted in exactly the same manner.
If you try and imagine your room as a bucket, and you are attempting to identify any leaks to seal before you can fill it up with liquid.
SOUND TRAVELLING THROUGH STRUCTURES AND OBJECTS
If sound moves through the air by vibration, then it makes perfect sense that this vibration can be absorbed by, transferred to or reflected by various solid materials. Sound can be moved around a property from its original source by the vibration of floors, walls and ceilings. Even in a room that is encased in a solid material that is proofed against sound vibrations, such as a concrete basement, the sound can be transmitted and even amplified to other rooms in the building.
How should we prevent these vibrations and sounds from having an adverse effect on other people? Soundproofing is the solution.
BASIC STEPS IN SOUNDPROOFING
If you've got bare floors or floorboards, consider putting down a few rugs or cover with a carpet to help in reducing any sound reflections and vibrations. The rugs or other soft coverings will help absorb sounds and can also add a touch of style to an otherwise bare room. Hanging wall coverings and curtains can also damp down sound vibrations and reflections through windows and walls without the need for a professional team of soundproofing installers.
Finding and sealing any gaps in your rooms, think windows, door frames, light fittings and sockets, is also a straightforward job for a skilled DIY�er. There are some unique acoustic sealants available on the market that suppress the sound waves, and do not transmit them to surrounding materials. Acoustic sealants are inclined to be a little more pricey than standard sealant products, but their remarkable soundproofing qualities far outweigh the small extra cost.
If you're fortunate enough to be renovating or redecorating while considering your soundproofing, then look into the possibility of installing an additional layer of plasterboard (also known as gypsum board, sheet rock or drywall). Plasterboard is a dense material which is both effective and economical in soundproofing an area. If you are putting in a cinema room, studio or study then plasterboard can help to minimise sound pollution for that room, and can be easily decorated after completion. If you do decide to use plasterboard to help with your soundproofing it is wise to use a professional fitter in Aldershot, to get the maximum effect from its installation.
One last easy soundproofing remedy is to check the materials from which your doors are made. If you have hollow doors fitted to rooms you will discover they can vibrate and will resonate any sound that hits them. Solid core doors, while a bit more expensive, can have a significant effect on the soundproofing capabilities of a room.
PROFESSIONAL SOUNDPROOFING SOLUTIONS ALDERSHOT
If the level of sound pollution is excessive in your area, because of aircraft passing overhead, or heavy traffic on a busy road for instance, then more severe methods to deal with the excess noise may have to be investigated. You'll obtain the best possible soundproofing outcome by using the services of an experienced soundproofing company.
The first questions you will be asked are:
- What noise or sounds are you attempting to subdue? i.e. External factors such as next door neighbours, street noise, aircraft etc, or sounds inside your home from a family room or music studio.
- How large is the space that you need to be soundproofed?
- What kind of property or room do you wish to soundproof? Is it a brick wall, a stud partition wall or a fully lined concrete wall etc.
- From which direction do the noises appear to be coming? i.e. Through the floors, walls, doors, ceiling or windows or a combination of all of them.
Your answers to these questions will enable you to get itemised quotes for the various available solutions to suit your requirements. Remedies will vary in accordance with the different materials needed for each of the trouble spots within your property.
PROFESSIONAL SOUNDPROOFING OF CEILINGS, FLOORS and WALLS
To soundproof any type of room requires two key strategies:
- Sound absorption will have to be maximised.
- Reduce the effect of sound amplification, reflection and vibration by solid surfaces.
To accurately analyse the soundproofing areas that need improvement, an on-site survey needs to be carried out by a local soundproofing company.
Conclusions from the survey will include the addition of materials of different densities and masses to help enhance the soundproofing properties of the area. This extra mass will include ways to increase the absorption of sound by means of acoustic rubber or foam to achieve the maximum noise reduction impacts.
Insulation between any existing voids will be upgraded to lower the sound amplification and resonation of these "sound boxes". If you think of a drum for example, you're looking at a sound amplifying void enclosed within a resonating material; fundamentally what you may encounter inside ceiling and floor joists, or wall cavities.
Mixed layers of differing mass and density materials do a better job of absorbing noise than a single material layer of one type. The diverse materials will reduce different noise frequencies and offer a more rounded auditory experience and feeling to a room.
Part E of the Building Regulations focus on the soundproofing of residential properties, and will need to be observed by any installation company in Aldershot. Such requirements have to be followed so as to protect yourself and neighbours from the harmful effects of sound pollution.
Trade organisations in the soundproofing industry who provide training, qualifications and advice are the Association of Noise Consultants and the Institute of Acoustics. Any Aldershot firm showing ANC or IOA accreditation will have been vetted to ensure they provide the highest standards, quality and reliability of work within the soundproofing industry.
