Soundproofer Oswestry Shropshire (SY10): If the level of noise is an issue in your home in Oswestry then it is time to think about installing soundproofing to make your living room, bedroom, home office or studio a retreat of peace and quiet from the outside world. You could also be concerned about noise from a family room or home cinema room escaping and disturbing other inhabitants. Either way, soundproofing is important for your peace of mind and sanity.
Firstly it would be advantageous to discover just how sound travels before we can find ways to eliminate any excessive noise intruding into or escaping from your home.
Sound basically travels in two ways throughout your room:
1. By vibration of solid materials and structures.
2. In open spaces by movement of air.
Despite the fact that sound can also travel through liquids, unless you're looking to reduce noises from a pool or aquarium, we'll only be interested in how to reduce sound levels in the rooms of a property.
SOUND THROUGH THE AIR
Any ill fitting windows, gaps around doors, open ducting and even electrical sockets and switches can all affect the transmission of sound into or outside a room. Any noise vibrates the air molecules and these vibrations are what we pick up and hear as sound. No matter what the source of the noise; traffic, machinery, passing aircraft, music playing or children playing, all sound is created and transferred in precisely the same way.
You should therefore imagine your room as a boat and inspect it carefully for leaks that require sealing.
SOUND THROUGH STRUCTURES AND OBJECTS
Sound waves can also be transferred to, absorbed by or reflected by solid objects and structures. Sound will cause vibrations in the walls, ceilings and floors of your rooms, and can lead to a resonating effect which is transferred outside the area. Even a room made from solid concrete, such as a cellar, can produce a resonance path which transmits any sound waves, and even amplify them, to other rooms in a building.
So, what's the best way to stop these sound vibrations having a detrimental impact on other people? Soundproofing obviously.
BASIC STEPS IN SOUNDPROOFING
A bare floor surface is more resonant than one covered with a rug or carpet. Not only will such a simple solution reduce your noise pollution problem, but it can also perk up the room. Hanging curtains and wall coverings can also avoid sound reflections and vibrations through walls and windows without the need for a professional team of soundproofers.
Finding and stopping up any holes or gaps around the room, think doors, windows, sockets and light fittings, is also a straightforward task for a skilled DIY enthusiast. You can find specialist acoustic sealants in many DIY stores that deaden the transmission of sound by suppressing the sound waves. They may be a tad more pricey than normal sealants or plaster, but they're worthwhile for their soundproofing efficiency.
If you are going to be renovating or redecorating while considering your soundproofing requirements, then think about installing an additional skin of plasterboard (also called gypsum board, sheet rock or drywall). This is an economic and efficient soundproofing material owing to its dense nature. It is superb if you're putting in a studio, cinema room or home office in your house in Oswestry. If you do choose plasterboard to aid your soundproofing exploits it is wise to employ a specialist fitter in Oswestry, to achieve the maximum benefit from its installment.
The last solution for do-it-yourself enthusiasts is to check out the doors in your home in Oswestry. If you've got hollow doors installed in your rooms you will find that they can vibrate with any sound that is aimed at them. Switching hollow doors for solid ones will improve the soundproofing attributes of an area with only a little more cost.
PROFESSIONAL SOUNDPROOFING SOLUTIONS OSWESTRY
If the sound pollution is extreme in your area, due to aircraft passing overhead, or traffic noise from a nearby road for instance, then more serious methods to combat the excess noise may need to be investigated. The best solution for resolving these problems is to contact a competent acoustic and soundproofing firm from the local area.
Expect to answer the following four questions during a survey of your soundproofing needs:
- What is the room you wish to soundproof made from? (i.e. a brick wall, a stud partition wall or a lined concrete wall).
- What are the specific sounds that you need to be soundproofed? i.e. Is it outside noises such as road noise, noisy neighbours, passing trains etc, or is it from inside your property such as a home cinema or music studio.
- How large is the area that needs soundproofing?
- From what direction do the noises seem to be coming? i.e. Through the ceiling, windows, doors, floors or walls or a mix of all of these.
Your answers to these questions will allow you to get estimates for the various available solutions that match your needs. They will offer different methods for soundproofing each of the main trouble spots within your home.
PROFESSIONAL SOUNDPROOFING OF WALLS, FLOORS and CEILINGS
There are 2 areas that need to be dealt with to successfully soundproof any room:
- Reduce sound the amplification and reverberation of sound.
- Increase sound absorption.
To accurately analyse the aspects that require improvement, a site survey needs to be carried out by a soundproofing company in Oswestry.
A specialist will look at the different methods for adding density and mass to the troublesome areas. The use of acoustic rubbers and foams of different mass and density will help to absorb noise and reduce transmission and reflection sources.
Any noticeable voids in the room may require some form of deadening material to be placed between them to lessen noise resonation. If you picture such spaces as similar to a drum then you'll see that by leaving floor or ceiling joist spaces and wall cavities empty, you're creating a sound amplifying area.
It's better to use combined layers of different density materials to soak up undesired sounds than a single layer made of one kind of material. This is because the different material densities react in different ways with varying frequencies and will deliver a much better overall resolution to your soundproofing.
Any soundproofing contractor in Oswestry must abide by the the Building Regulations (Part E), if dealing with a residential property. Part E of the Building Regulations is a legally binding requirement to protect your neighbours and yourself from the effects of noise pollution in an area where people live and work.
The Institute of Acoustics and the Association of Noise Consultants are recognised trade bodies who provide training, qualifications and are representative of the best in companies and contractors that offer soundproofing solutions.
