Soundproofer Corsham Wiltshire (SN13): If your Corsham property is being affected by noise, maybe you should look into putting in some soundproofing to bring tranquillity to your home office, studio, lounge or bedroom. Conversely you may wish to soundproof a specific room to keep load noises in, for instance in a home cinema or family room, to avoid disturbing others. In any event, soundproofing is important for sanity and peace of mind.
Initially we need to learn how is transmitted and travels before we are able to find ways to combat any excessive noise intruding into or escaping from your home.
Basically, sound travels in two ways throughout your room:
1. Through objects by the vibration of the material.
2. The vibration or air molecules through the air.
Sound is also transmitted through water, however unless you're thinking about soundproofing an aquarium or swimming pool we'll just concentrate on the isolation through air and materials.
SOUND TRAVEL THROUGH THE AIR
Any ill fitted windows, heating ducts, gaps around doors and even electrical sockets and switches can all be methods of transmission of sound outside or into a room. Any noise vibrates the air molecules and these vibrations are what we hear and identify as sound. It doesn't matter if it's music playing, road traffic, aircraft, kids playing or machinery, they all create and transmit sound in the same manner.
If you try and visualise your room as if it were a bucket, and you're trying to identify any leaks to seal before you fill it with water.
SOUND THROUGH STRUCTURES AND OBJECTS
Sound waves can additionally be reflected by, absorbed by or transferred to solid objects and structures. Sound will cause vibrations in the walls, floors and ceilings of your rooms, and can lead to a resonating effect which is transferred outside of the area. Even a solid concrete room, such as a basement, can generate a path of resonance which transports any sound waves, and sometimes amplify them, to other rooms in a structure.
So, how can we stop this sound transference having a detrimental impact on other people? Soundproofing of course.
BASIC STEPS IN SOUNDPROOFING
A bare floor resonates more than one covered by a rug or carpet. These soft coverings and rugs will help to absorb noises but can also add a touch of elegance to an otherwise bare room. Window drapes and wall coverings can also be employed to boost soundproofing and are simple to fit and maintain.
Another inexpensive and do-it-yourself remedy is to plug any holes or gaps around doors, sockets, light fittings and windows. You can find specialist acoustic sealants in some builders merchants that suppress the transmission of sound by absorbing it. There may be a little difference in price when compared to a normal sealant, however the soundproofing capabilities are a lot better and will make a big difference to a room's soundproofing.
If the room you are working on is an empty canvas and you are soundproofing as you renovate or decorate, think about putting up a layer of plasterboard or soundboard, (also known as sheet rock, drywall or gyproc). Plasterboard is a dense material that is both economical and efficient in soundproofing a room. It's ideal if you are putting in a games room, study or home cinema in your home in Corsham. It is advisable to hire a specialist Corsham tradesman to put up the plasterboard unless you're experienced in this task.
One final simple soundproofing treatment is to look at the materials your doors are made of. Whilst hollow doors are lightweight and comparatively affordable, their soundproofing qualities aren't that brilliant. Solid wood doors, whilst a tad more expensive, can have a significant effect on the soundproofing capabilities of a room.
PROFESSIONAL SOUNDPROOFING CORSHAM
Some properties, for instance those beside busy roads or on aircraft flight paths, have naturally more sound pollution issues and will require other ways to solve the situation. This is an instance when the services of a specialist soundproofing service will bring the best results.
Be prepared to answer the four following questions during a survey of your specific soundproofing requirements:
- What is the room you want to soundproof constructed from? (i.e. a brick wall, a fully lined concrete wall or a plasterboarded partition wall).
- What noise or sounds are you attempting to reduce? i.e. External issues like neighbours, traffic noise, passing trains etc, or sounds inside your property from a home cinema or teenagers bedroom.
- How big is the space you wish to have soundproofed?
- Which is the main place where the sound creates the biggest problems? i.e. Is it coming through windows, down from above, up through the flooring or from the walls, or is it a combination of all factors.
Your answers to such questions will allow you to receive quotes for the different solutions available to suit your requirements. There'll be distinct remedies for each of the main key areas of the space you want to soundproof.
PROFESSIONAL SOUNDPROOFING OF FLOORS, WALLS and CEILINGS
2 key components are required to soundproof any sort of room:
- Reduce the effects on the way sound is reflected off and transmitted through hard surfaces.
- Improve the absorption of sound.
This will require an on-site survey to verify precisely what areas require developing from the current condition.
Conclusions from the survey will probably include adding some materials with different densities to help enhance the soundproofing qualities of the area. This additional mass will help to enhance absorption of the sound energy by means of acoustic rubber or foam to gain the maximum sound reduction impacts.
Voids between floor joists may need insulating to remove resonation spaces between them. If you imagine such spaces as similar to a drum or wooden cajon then you'll see that by leaving wall cavities and floor or ceiling joist spaces open, you're effectively creating a noise amplifying area.
It is far better to use combined layers of different densities to soak up unwelcome noises than a solitary layer made of one kind of soundproofing material. This is due to the fact that different frequencies are affected by different materials, therefore a variety of shapes, densities and layers within your soundproofing armoury are needed.
Any soundproofing installer in Corsham must comply with the Part E of the Building Regulations, if your property is residential in nature. These requirements should be followed in order to protect yourself and others from being negatively impacted by sound pollution.
Look out for companies displaying the logos of the Association of Noise Consultants or the Institute of Acoustics to guarantee that you're using a business that is fully qualified and knowledgeable in the soundproofing industry. Any Corsham firm displaying IOA or ANC accreditation will have been vetted to make certain they provide the highest standards, quality and reliability of workmanship within the industry.
