Soundproofer Penrith Cumbria (CA11): If your home in Penrith is being impacted by noise, maybe you should consider installing or upgrading your soundproofing to bring tranquillity to your studio, living room, bedroom or home office. You might also be concerned about noise from a family room or home cinema room escaping and disturbing others in the house. Whatever your requirements, soundproofing will offer you peace of mind and sanity.
Firstly we should understand exactly how is transmitted and travels before we are able to find ways to reduce any excessive noise escaping from or intruding into your home.
Sound is able to move in two different ways:
1. The vibration or air molecules through the air.
2. Through objects by the vibration of the material.
Sound is also transmitted through water, but unless you're planning to soundproof an aquarium or pool we'll just consider its isolation via air and materials.
SOUND TRAVEL THROUGH THE AIR
Sounds can be transmitted into and out of a room through heating ducts, single glazed windows, gaps around doors and even electrical switches and sockets. All sounds and noise will create the vibration and movement of the air molecules, and this is what we pick up and hear. Regardless of the source of the sound; machinery, passing aircraft, music, nearby traffic or children playing, all sound is generated and transferred in precisely the same fashion.
If you try and think of your room as a bucket, and you're trying to find any leaks that need sealing before you can fill it up with water.
SOUND THROUGH STRUCTURES AND OBJECTS
We now understand that sound is simply the vibration of air being picked up by the ear, but that vibration is also absorbed by solid materials. The walls, ceilings and floors will all have an effect on how sound travels around a room, and can even transmit those vibrations to other areas of a property. Even a room made of solid concrete, such as a cellar, can create a path of resonance which transmits any sound waves, and even amplify them, to other parts of a building.
However, how can these effects be prevented from creating an issue? The solution is naturally, soundproofing!
SIMPLE SOUNDPROOFING STEPS
A bare floor resonates more than one covered with a carpet or rug. Such a simple and straightforward solution can help to damp down any noises and enhance the room at the same time. Curtains, particularly heavy blackout styles, will also subdue any noises from escaping or invading a room, economically and without requiring professional soundproofing.
Another cost-effective and DIY remedy is to plug any holes around doors, light fittings, sockets and windows. Stopping up the holes and gaps with an acoustic sealant that can be purchased in many DIY and building material shops, will make a big difference to how your room sounds. Acoustic sealants are inclined to be a bit more pricey than standard plaster or other sealant products, however the special design has far greater soundproofing performance and is certainly worth the small additional cost.
If the room you are working on is a blank canvas and you are soundproofing as you decorate or renovate, look at installing a skin of soundboard or plasterboard, (also known as drywall, gypsum board or sheet rock). This is an efficient and economical soundproofing material owing to its dense nature. If you're putting in a games room, movie room or home office then plasterboard can help reduce sound pollution for that room, and can be easily decorated after installation. It is better to hire a competent Penrith tradesman to fit the plasterboard unless you're experienced in this task.
One last easy soundproofing option is to check the materials from which your doors are made. Hollow doors are comparatively cheap but their soundproofing qualities are far from the best. If you are able to change to solid core doors you'll discover that it enhances your soundproofing more cheaply than some other solutions.
PROFESSIONAL SOUNDPROOFING SOLUTIONS PENRITH
If you happen to live in a high sound pollution location, such as next to a busy road or near an airport, you will need to be more innovative in how to enhance the soundproofing qualities of your house. The best way to resolve these issues is to get in touch with a competent acoustic and soundproofing company from your local region.
Expect to answer the four following questions during an initial survey of your particular soundproofing needs:
- How large is the room that needs soundproofing?
- Where is the majority of the sound emanating from? The windows, doors, floors, walls or ceiling.
- Is it internal sounds or external noise that you wish to address? i.e. To lessen traffic, overflying aircraft or neighbours playing loud music, or is it from internally generated sounds from a music room or family room for instance.
- What is the room you want to soundproof constructed from? (i.e. a plasterboarded partition wall, a lined concrete wall or a brick wall).
With honest answers to these questions a decent soundproofing company in Penrith will figure out solutions to suit your situation, and just as importantly, your allotted budget. They'll offer different methods for soundproofing each of the problem areas within your home.
PROFESSIONAL SOUNDPROOFING OF FLOORS, WALLS and CEILINGS
Two key approaches are required to soundproof any sort of room or space:
- Increase the absorption of sound.
- Minimise sound the reverberation and amplification of sound.
An on-site survey will be needed to examine the elements that need improving.
A professional soundproofing company will consider the different ways to add density and mass to the trouble spots. The addition of acoustic foams and rubbers of different density and mass will help in absorbing noise and reduce transmission and reflection sources.
Insulation between any voids will be upgraded to reduce the noise amplification and resonation of these sound boxes. Floor and ceiling voids and wall cavities can all be assimilated with a drum, where the space inside acts as an amplifying area for unwelcome sounds.
Mixed layers of materials with different masses and densities work better at absorbing noise than a single material layer of one type. This is due to the fact that the various frequencies are absorbed differently by different materials, therefore a diversity of layers, shapes and densities within your soundproofing panels are needed for the best results.
Any soundproofing installer in Penrith will need to follow the the Building Regulations (Part E), if dealing with a domestic property. Part E of the Building Regulations is a requirement in law to protect yourself and neighbours from being affected by noise pollution in an area where people live and work.
Trade bodies in the soundproofing industry that offer qualifications, advice and training are the Association of Noise Consultants (ANC) and the Institute of Acoustics (IOA). A reliable soundproofing contractor in Penrith will have been through a verification procedure for the professionalism and quality of their workmanship to have been accepted as a member of these associations.
