Soundproofer Ascot Berkshire (SL5): If your property in Ascot is being affected by noise, maybe you should think about putting in some soundproofing to bring tranquillity to your living room, bedroom, studio or home office. You could also be concerned about any noise from a family room or home cinema room escaping and causing a disturbance to others in the house. Whatever your needs are, soundproofing will offer you peace of mind and sanity.
Initially it would be advantageous to get our heads around precisely how sound travels before we can find ways to combat any excessive noise intruding into or escaping from your home.
There are only a couple of ways in which sound can move around a room:
1. Through the air by vibration of air molecules.
2. By vibration of solid materials and structures.
Sound can also travel through water, however unless you are planning to soundproof a swimming pool or aquarium we will simply concern ourselves with its isolation via air and materials.
SOUND TRAVEL THROUGH THE AIR
Any gaps around doors, single glazed windows, heating ducts and even electrical switches and sockets can all be methods of transmission of sound into or outside a room. All sounds and noise will initiate the vibration and movement of the molecules in the air, and it is this that we identify and hear. All sounds are moved through the air in the same manner; it doesn't matter if it's aircraft, children playing, music, heavy machinery or road traffic that produces the sound.
If you try to think of your room as if it were a bucket, and you're attempting to identify any leaks that need sealing before you can fill it with liquid.
SOUND TRAVELLING THROUGH STRUCTURES AND OBJECTS
Sound waves can additionally be transferred to, absorbed by or reflected by solid objects and structures. The ceilings, floors and walls will all have an impact on how sound travels around an area, and may even transmit that vibration to other parts of a property. Care has to be taken with solid brick or concrete walls, such as in basements, as sound can be reflected and amplified to other rooms in your house.
How should we stop these sounds and vibrations from having an adverse effect on other people? Soundproofing is the answer.
SIMPLE SOUNDPROOFING STEPS
Think about covering bare floors, which resonate and reflect sound, with a carpet or rug. These soft coverings and rugs will help absorb noise but can also add a touch of style to an otherwise bare room. Curtains, especially heavy blackout ones, will also repress any sounds from invading or escaping a room, cost-effectively and without requiring specialist soundproofing.
Search for areas in your rooms where sound can escape or come in; doors, sockets, light fittings and windows, and stop up the holes or gaps. It is possible to buy professional acoustic sealants in some DIY outlets that subdue the transmission of sound by absorbing it. There could be a considerable difference in price when compared to a regular sealant, but the soundproofing capabilities are significantly better and will make an enormous difference to a room's level of soundproofing.
For those of you who are renovating a property or redecorating a room, evaluate the soundproofing properties of adding a supplementary skin of plasterboard or soundboard, (also known as drywall, sheet rock or gypsum board), whilst you're tackling the work. Plasterboard is a dense material that's both economical and efficient for soundproofing purposes. It is ideal if you're installing a home office, games room or home cinema in your home in Ascot. It is better to hire a competent Ascot tradesman to fit the plasterboard unless you've got experience in its application.
The final DIY solution is to think about the doors within your property in Ascot. If you have hollow doors fitted to rooms you will find they can resonate and vibrate with any sound that is aimed at them. If you're able to change to solid core doors you'll find it improves your room's soundproofing at little extra cost.
PROFESSIONAL SOUNDPROOFING ASCOT
If the sound levels are high in your location, because of aircraft passing overhead, or traffic noise from a nearby road for instance, then more serious ways to deal with the excess noise may have to be explored. This is an instance when retaining the services of a specialist soundproofing company will deliver the best results.
Expect to answer the following four questions during an initial evaluation of your particular soundproofing needs:
- Is it external sounds or internal noise that you wish to deal with? i.e. To stop road noise, passing trains or neighbours, or is it from internally generated sounds from a teenagers bedroom or family room for example.
- How big is the room that needs soundproofing?
- What area needs to be soundproofed? i.e. Is it an attic conversion, a concrete lined cellar, a stud partitioned room or a brick walled room.
- Where is the majority of the noise emanating from? The doors, walls, windows, flooring or ceiling.
Your answers to these questions will enable you to get estimates for the various available solutions that match your circumstances. There will be different remedies for each of the key areas the room that you want to soundproof.
PROFESSIONAL SOUNDPROOFING OF FLOORS, CEILINGS and WALLS
There are two key areas that must be addressed to soundproof any room or space:
- Reduce the effects on the way sound is transmitted through and reflected by hard surfaces.
- Increase sound absorption.
To accurately determine the aspects that require improvement, an on-site survey should be conducted by a soundproofing specialist.
The team will look at ways to add materials with different masses and densities to boost the sound absorption of the area. The addition of acoustic foams and rubbers of varying density and mass will help to absorb noise and reduce reflections and transmission sources.
Voids between floor joists might require insulating to remove the resonating gap between them. If you visualise such spaces as similar to a drum or wooden cajon then you'll understand that by leaving wall cavities and floor or ceiling joist spaces empty, you're creating a noise amplification area.
It's better to use combined layers of different density materials to deaden unwanted noises than a solitary layer made from one type of soundproofing material. This is because the various frequencies are absorbed differently by different materials, therefore a variety of shapes, densities and layers within your soundproofing panels are needed.
All soundproofing firms in Ascot must follow the requirements for domestic properties as laid out in the Building Regulations (Part E). This set of regulations is a requirement in law to protect yourself and neighbours from being affected by sound pollution in an environment where folks live and work.
Watch out for companies displaying the logos of the Institute of Acoustics (IOA) or the Association of Noise Consultants (ANC) to be certain you are dealing with a business that's knowledgable and fully qualified in the soundproofing sector. Only those Ascot businesses that have been appraised and approved by these organisations for reliability, quality and professionalism are allowed to bear the logo.

Searching On the Web For a Soundproofer in Ascot
There's little question that your first impulse when you are looking to find a tradesman or service in Ascot is to hook up to the internet and "Google it". Instant and on-topic results are the main reward of searching with Ask, Yahoo, Bing or Google, which are available for this exact intention. One issue is usually that the 1st page listings offered by the favoured search engines might not exactly be what you were looking for. When searching for soundproofing specialists in Ascot most home owners will type in "soundproofing in Ascot", "soundproofing near me", "Ascot soundproofing" or "soundproofing Ascot", and sort through the listing results.
Just to enlighten you if you did not already know, you will generally find that the upper and lower four listings are inclined to be some kind of PPC (Pay Per Click) advertising, whilst the majority of the rest will likely be business directories such as Thomson Local, Yell, ThreeBestRated or Yelp, or listings for major lead generating websites like TrustaTrader, Local Heroes, Quotatis, Checkatrade, Rated People or My Builder, which might or might not be of any use. You'll very likely discover the web sites of actual soundproofing companies languishing on page 2 or 3 of the search results, overshadowed by the wealthier players who can more easily afford search engine optimization.
