Soundproofer March Cambridgeshire (PE15): If noise is a problem in your property in March then it may be time to consider putting in some soundproofing to make your studio, home office, lounge or bedroom a sanctuary of peace and quiet from your fellow occupants, neighbours and the outside world. Conversely you may wish to soundproof a specific room to keep load noises in, for instance in a family room or home cinema, to avoid disturbing others. No matter what soundproofing needs are required, it will be vital for everybody's peace of mind.
It is important for us to learn how sound travels and is transmitted around a structure before it's possible to find solutions to stop it from occurring.
Basically, sound travels in two ways around a room:
1. In open spaces by movement of air.
2. By vibration of solid materials and objects.
Sound also travels through water, but unless you are planning to soundproof a pool or aquarium we will only deal with the isolation via air and materials.
SOUND TRAVELLING THROUGH THE AIR
If you check out the area or room to be soundproofed and detect heating ducts, ill fitting windows, gaps around doors and even electrical switches and sockets, these are all causes of sound transmission. Any sound vibrates the air molecules and these vibrations are what we hear as sound. All sounds travel through the air in this same way; it matters not if it's road traffic, heavy machinery, aircraft, music or kids playing that produces the sound.
If you can think of your room as a bucket, and you are attempting to find any leaks that need sealing before you can fill it with liquid.
SOUND TRAVEL THROUGH OBJECTS AND STRUCTURES
Sound waves can also be transferred to, reflected by or absorbed by solid materials and structures. Sound can be transferred around a building from its source by the vibration of ceilings, floors and walls. Even in a room that's encased in a dense material which is proofed against vibrations, such as a concrete lined basement, the sound can be transmitted and possibly even amplified to other rooms in the dwelling.
How should we stop these vibrations and sounds from having an adverse effect on other people? Soundproofing is the solution.
BASIC STEPS IN SOUNDPROOFING
A bare floor is more resonant than one covered with a carpet or rug. Such a straightforward solution can help to damp down any noises and spruce up the room to boot. Window drapes and wall coverings can also be employed to boost soundproofing and are simple to install.
Another cost-effective and DIY resolution is to plug any gaps or holes around light fittings, windows, door frames and electrical sockets. It is possible to purchase professional acoustic sealants in many builders merchants which repress the transmission of sound by absorbing it. They might be a bit more pricey than standard sealants or plaster, but they're worthwhile for their soundproofing qualities.
For anyone redecorating a room or renovating a property, look at the soundproofing gains of adding another skin of plasterboard or soundboard, (also called gyproc, sheet rock or drywall), whilst you are carrying out this project. This is a dense type of board which is an economic and useful soundproofing material. If you're putting in a cinema room, games room or home office then plasterboard will help reduce sound transference from and to that room, and can be readily decorated after completion. If you're not proficient in putting up framing and plasterboard, it's advisable to hire a specialist team to guarantee the optimal soundproofing gains from its use.
One final easy soundproofing treatment is to look at the materials your doors are made of. If you have hollow doors in your rooms you'll discover they can resonate and vibrate with any sound that is aimed at them. If you're able to change to solid wooden doors you'll discover that it improves your room's soundproofing at minimal extra cost.
PROFESSIONAL SOUNDPROOFING MARCH
Some properties, for instance those on aircraft flight-paths or next to busy routes, naturally have more sound problems and will require other ways to deal with the dilemma. This is when the services of an experienced soundproofing company will bring the greatest results.
The initial questions you will be asked are:
- What noise or sounds are you looking to subdue? i.e. External factors like neighbours, traffic noise, aircraft etc, or internal sounds from a home cinema or music studio.
- Which is the main point where the sound causes the most problems? i.e. Is it coming up through the flooring, down from overhead, through doors/windows or from the walls, or is it a mixture of all things.
- How big is the room that needs soundproofing?
- What is the room you wish to soundproof made from? (i.e. a plasterboarded partition wall, a fully lined concrete wall or a brick wall).
An established soundproofing company in March will take into consideration all these points to provide remedies for your sound issues over a range of budgets. They'll provide you with different strategies to soundproof each of the trouble spots within your home.
PROFESSIONAL SOUNDPROOFING OF WALLS, FLOORS and CEILINGS
Two key approaches are required to soundproof any kind of space:
- Reduce the ways that sound is transmitted through and reflected by hard surfaces.
- The absorption of sound will have to be increased.
To accurately assess the areas that need to be improved, a site survey must be performed by a soundproofing expert.
Solutions from the survey will probably include the addition of materials with different densities to help maximise the soundproofing attributes of the room. Soundproofing can be boosted by the application of acoustic rubber, foam and other materials which absorbs soundwaves and enhances and the sound quality of a room.
Voids between joists may need insulation to eliminate resonation spaces between them. If you imagine a drum or wooden cajon, you're looking at a noise amplifying void surrounded by a resonating material; essentially what you might find within floor and ceiling joists, or wall cavities.
Soundproofing abilities are improved if different densities and materials are utilised, as opposed to installing a single type of material. The different materials will reduce different noise frequencies and offer a more balanced auditory experience and feeling to a room.
All soundproofing firms in March need to follow the legislation for residential properties laid out in Part E of the Building Regulations. This regulation has the objective of protecting other residents in the immediate area from the impacts of sound pollution.
Keep an eye out for companies showing the logos of the Institute of Acoustics or the Association of Noise Consultants to guarantee that you are using a business which is knowledgable and fully qualified in the soundproofing industry. Only those March companies that have been appraised and accredited by these trade organisations for quality, reliability and professionalism are permitted to bear the logo.
