Soundproofer Lytham St Annes Lancashire (FY8): If noise is an issue in your Lytham St Annes property then it is time to look into installing soundproofing to make your studio, bedroom, home office or lounge a peaceful haven from the outside world. Conversely you might wish to soundproof a specific room to keep load noises in, such as in a home cinema or family room, to avoid disturbing others. No matter what soundproofing needs are required, it's essential for you and your neighbour's sanity and peace of mind.
Initially we should get our heads around how sound travels before we can find ways to eliminate any excessive noise intruding into or escaping from your home.
There basically two ways in which sound can travel around a room:
1. The vibration or air molecules through the air.
2. Through objects by the vibration of the material.
As dolphin and whale songs can show, sound also travels through water, but unless you wish to soundproof an aquarium or swimming pool we'll just look at the methods of soundproofing rooms and buildings.
SOUND TRAVELLING THROUGH THE AIR
Sound can be transferred out of and into a room through gaps around doors, open air-ducting, single glazed windows and even light fittings and electrical sockets. All noise and sounds will create the vibration and movement of the air molecules, and this is what we hear and identify. All sounds travel through the air in the same manner; it does not matter if it's music playing, kids playing, heavy machinery, aircraft or road traffic that produces the sound.
It is helpful to visualise your room as a boat and carefully inspect it for leaks that need to be plugged before you can dare to sail it.
SOUND TRAVEL THROUGH OBJECTS AND STRUCTURES
As sound moves through the air by vibrations, then it seems logical that those vibrations can be absorbed by, reflected by or transferred to different solid materials. Sound can be transferred around a property from its source by the vibration of ceilings, floors and walls. Even a solid concrete room, such as a basement, can create a path of resonance which channels sound waves, and even amplify them, to other rooms in a structure.
However, how can these sound transmitting effects be stopped from creating an issue? The answer is obviously, soundproofing!
SIMPLE SOUNDPROOFING STEPS
A bare floor surface is more resonant than one covered by a rug or carpet. These soft coverings and rugs will help soak up noise and can also add a touch of elegance to an otherwise bare room. Window drapes and wall coverings can also be employed to improve soundproofing and are simple to install.
Track down areas around the rooms where noise can come in or escape from; light fittings, sockets, door frames and windows, and seal any gaps. Stopping up the holes and gaps with a special acoustic sealant that can be purchased in many DIY shops and builders merchants, can make a massive difference to how your room sounds. There might be a considerable difference in the price when compared to a normal sealant, however the soundproofing capabilities are much better and will make a massive difference to a room.
If the room you are working on is a blank canvas and you are soundproofing while you renovate or decorate, consider installing another skin of soundboard or plasterboard, (also known as sheet rock, gypsum board or drywall). This is an efficient and economical soundproofing material owing to its dense nature. It is effective if you are setting up a movie room, study or games room in your home in Lytham St Annes. If you aren't familiar with fitting framing and plasterboard, it is generally advisable to use a professional Lytham St Annes contractor to guarantee the optimal soundproofing results from its installation.
One last simple soundproofing treatment is to examine the materials your doors are made of. If you've got hollow doors installed in your rooms you'll find that they can resonate and vibrate with any sound that they experience. Exchanging hollow doors for solid ones will appreciably improve the soundproofing of a room with only a small extra cost.
PROFESSIONAL SOUNDPROOFING LYTHAM ST ANNES
Some homes, such as those on aircraft flight-paths or next to busy traffic routes, naturally have more sound problems and will need other ways to address the dilemma. You'll get the very best soundproofing outcome by hiring the expertise of an experienced soundproofing specialist.
The initial questions you should be asked are:
- How big is the room requiring soundproofing?
- What are the particular noises that need to soundproofed? i.e. Is it outside noises such as trains, neighbours playing loud music, traffic noise etc, or is it from within your house such as a home cinema or music room.
- Where exactly is the principal source of the sound emanating from? i.e. Overhead, through the windows, floors, ceiling, doors or walls, or a combination of all sorts of things.
- What is the room you wish to soundproof constructed from? (i.e. a brick wall, a stud partition wall or a lined concrete wall).
Your answers to such queries will enable you to receive itemised quotes for the various available solutions to suit your requirements. Remedies will vary in line with the different materials required for each of the problem areas in your home.
PROFESSIONAL SOUNDPROOFING OF WALLS, FLOORS and CEILINGS
To soundproof any kind of room requires two key strategies:
- Update and enhance the level of sound absorption.
- Reduce the effect of sound reflection, amplification and vibration by solid surfaces.
An on-site survey is going to be needed to assess the aspects that need improving.
The team will look at ways to add materials with different densities and masses to increase the sound quality of the area. The use of acoustic rubbers and foams of different mass and density will help to absorb noise and reduce reflections and transmission sources.
The insulation between any voids will be improved or upgraded to lower the sound resonation and amplification of these sound boxes. Floor and ceiling voids and cavities in walls can all be likened to a drum, where the space inside acts as an amplifying area for unwelcome noise.
Combined layers of materials with different masses and densities do a better job of absorbing sound than a solitary layer of one material type. The different materials will reduce different noise frequencies and deliver a more balanced auditory experience and feeling to a room.
Any soundproofing contractor in Lytham St Annes will have to follow the the Building Regulations (Part E), if dealing with a residential property. These regulations must be observed in order to safeguard yourself and others from being negatively impacted by sound pollution.
Keep an eye out for contractors showing the logos of the Association of Noise Consultants or the Institute of Acoustics to make certain you're dealing with a business which is knowledgable and fully qualified in the soundproofing industry. Only those Lytham St Annes firms that have been appraised and accredited by these associations for reliability, quality and professionalism are allowed to bear the logo.
