Soundproofer Gosport Hampshire (PO12): If your home in Gosport is being affected by noise, perhaps you should look into putting in some soundproofing to bring tranquillity to your living room, bedroom, studio or home office. In some instances you could be thinking about soundproofing so that you don't disturb others in the house from a children's room, home cinema or music studio. Either way, soundproofing is important for sanity and peace of mind.
Initially it would be advantageous to discover just how is transmitted and travels before we are able to find ways to combat any excessive noise escaping from or intruding into your property.
There basically a couple of ways by which sound can travel around a room:
1. Through the air by vibration of air molecules.
2. By vibration of solid materials and objects.
As dolphin and whale song shows, sound also penetrates long distance through water, but unless your aim is to soundproof an aquarium or pool we'll look only at the strategies for soundproofing rooms and buildings.
SOUND TRAVEL THROUGH THE AIR
If you check around the area or room to be soundproofed and discover gaps around doors, ill fitted windows, heating ducts and even light fittings and electrical sockets, these are all aspects that can cause the transmission of sound. All noise and sounds will create movement and vibration of the air molecules, and this is what we hear. It doesn't matter whether it's music playing, busy traffic, machinery, passing aircraft or kids playing, they all generate and transfer sound in the same manner.
Any gaps within a room can be regarded as a leak and will have to be blocked.
SOUND TRAVELLING THROUGH STRUCTURES AND OBJECTS
As sound travels through the air by vibrations, then it seems logical that those vibrations can be reflected by, transferred to or absorbed by different materials. The floors, walls and ceilings will all have an impact on how sound travels around an area, and can even transport those vibrations to other areas of a property. Even if a room is encased in a solid material which is somewhat resistant to sound vibrations, such as a concrete cellar, the sound can be reflected and perhaps even amplified to other parts of the property.
But, how can these effects be prevented from creating an issue? The answer is not surprisingly, soundproofing!
BASIC STEPS IN SOUNDPROOFING
Consider covering a bare floor surface, which reflects and resonates sound, with a carpet or rug. The rugs or other soft coverings will help to absorb noise but can also add a bit of style to a previously bare room. Curtains, particularly substantial blackout types, will also repress any sounds from invading or escaping the area, economically and without requiring professional installation.
Locating and plugging any gaps in your rooms, think door frames, electrical sockets, windows and light fittings, is also a simple task for a skilled DIY enthusiast. There are special acoustic sealants available on the market which suppress the sound waves, and do not transmit them to surrounding materials. There could be a considerable difference in price compared to a normal sealant, but the soundproofing abilities are far better and will make a huge difference to a room.
For anybody redecorating a room or renovating a property, evaluate the soundproofing properties of adding a supplementary layer of plasterboard or soundboard, (also called gypsum board, drywall or sheet rock), while you are tackling the project. Plasterboard is a dense material that's both effective and economical in soundproofing an area. It is ideal if you're installing a music studio, study or home cinema in your property in Gosport. It is advisable to hire a reliable contractor near you to install plasterboard unless you've got some experience in this type of work.
The last solution for DIY enthusiasts is to check out the doors in your property in Gosport. Even though hollow doors are light and fairly cheap, their soundproofing attributes are not all that brilliant. Changing hollow core doors for solid core will improve the soundproofing capabilities of a room with only a small extra cost.
PROFESSIONAL SOUNDPROOFING GOSPORT
If you happen to live in a high noise pollution location, such as near an airport or next to busy roads, you'll need to be more creative in your endeavours to enhance the soundproofing qualities of your house. This is an instance when hiring the services of an established soundproofing installer will bring the most effective results.
Expect to answer the four following questions during an evaluation of your specific soundproofing requirements:
- How big is the area that you need to be soundproofed?
- From what direction do the noises seem to be coming from? i.e. Through the flooring, doors, ceiling, walls or windows or a combination of all of these.
- What noise or sounds are you looking to reduce? i.e. External things like street noise, neighbours, aircraft etc, or sounds within your home from a home cinema or music room.
- What room requires soundproofing? i.e. Is it a loft conversion, a brick walled room, a stud partitioned room or a concrete lined basement.
A certified soundproofing installation company in Gosport will look into all these aspects to provide remedies for your noise issues for various budgets. They will offer you different methods to soundproof each of the trouble spots within your home.
PROFESSIONAL SOUNDPROOFING OF CEILINGS, FLOORS and WALLS
2 key approaches are needed to soundproof any sort of room:
- Reduce the ways that sound is transmitted through and reflected by solid surfaces.
- Improve sound absorption.
This will require a site survey to see what areas need enhancing from the current state.
Conclusions from the survey will include adding some materials of different densities and masses to help improve the soundproofing characteristics of the space. The use of acoustic rubbers and foams of different density and mass will help in absorbing sounds and reduce reflections and transmission sources.
Any noticeable voids in the room might need some form of muffling material to be installed between them to lower noise resonation. If you imagine a drum for example, you are looking at a noise increasing void enclosed within a resonating material; essentially what you might encounter inside floor and ceiling joists, or cavities in walls.
It is better to use combined layers of different density materials to absorb unwanted sounds than a solitary layer fabricated from one material. The diverse materials will eliminate different frequencies of noise and offer a more balanced feeling and auditory experience to a room.
Any soundproofing firm in Gosport will have to conform to the Part E of the Building Regulations, if your property is residential in nature. Part E of the Building Regulations is a legally binding requirement to protect yourself and neighbours from being affected by noise pollution in a setting where people work and live.
Keep an eye out for contractors showing the logos of the Institute of Acoustics (IOA) or the Association of Noise Consultants (ANC) to be sure you're dealing with a business that is knowledgable and fully qualified in the soundproofing industry. Only those Gosport companies that have been appraised and approved by these trade bodies for reliability, quality and professionalism are allowed to bear the logo.
