Soundproofer Polesworth Warwickshire (B78): If you are anxious about the amount of noise that is infiltrating your Polesworth property, be it in a lounge, studio, home office or bedroom, you should think about putting in some soundproofing. Alternatively you may want to soundproof a specific room to keep noise in, such as in a family room or home cinema, so that others don't get disturbed. Whatever your needs, soundproofing will give you sanity and peace of mind.
It is important for us to learn how sound travels and is transmitted around a building before it's possible to find strategies to prevent it from happening.
Basically, sound moves in two ways around a room:
1. Around and within a solid object by reflection and vibration.
2. Through the air by vibration of air molecules.
Although sound also travels through liquids, unless you are wanting to eliminate sounds from an aquarium or swimming pool, we will only be concerned with how to reduce sound levels in the rooms of a structure.
SOUND THROUGH THE AIR
If you look around the room to be soundproofed and notice gaps around doors, single glazed windows, open ducting and even electrical switches and sockets, these are all factors that can transfer sound. All noise and sounds will create movement and vibration of the air molecules, and this is what we hear and identify. All sounds are transferred through the air in this same way; it doesn't matter if it's music, heavy machinery, road traffic, aircraft or children playing that generates the sound.
You should therefore imagine a room as a boat and inspect it carefully for leaks that require sealing.
SOUND TRAVEL THROUGH OBJECTS AND STRUCTURES
As sound moves through the air by vibration, then it makes sense that this vibration can be reflected by, transferred to or absorbed by various solid materials. Sound will vibrate the floors, ceilings and walls of your rooms, and can lead to a resonation effect that's transmitted outside the area. 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.
How should we prevent these sounds and vibrations affecting other folks? Soundproofing is the solution.
BASIC SOUNDPROOFING STEPS
If you have bare floorboards or floor surfaces, consider putting down a few rugs or cover with a carpet to help in reducing any vibrations and sound reflections. Such a simple and straightforward solution can help to damp down any noises and enhance the room to boot. Window drapes and wall coverings can also be employed to boost soundproofing and are simple to install.
Another economical and do-it-yourself resolution is to plug any gaps or holes around sockets, light fittings, door frames and windows. You can find specialist acoustic sealants in many DIY stores that moderate the transmission of sound by absorbing it. Acoustic sealants are inclined to be a little more pricey than standard plaster or other sealant products, however their remarkable soundproofing qualities far outweigh the additional cost.
If you are luckily enough to be redecorating or renovating while considering your soundproofing, then think about the possibility of installing an extra layer of plasterboard (also called sheet rock, gypsum board or drywall). This is an economic and efficient soundproofing material because of its dense nature. It's great if you are installing a movie room, games room or study in your home in Polesworth. If you are not experienced in putting up plasterboard and framing, it is generally advisable to employ a professional Polesworth contractor to guarantee the optimum soundproofing benefits from its installation.
Last but not least you need to check all doors in the space you're planning to soundproof. Hollow doors are a relatively cheap option but their soundproofing qualities are a far cry from ideal. Changing hollow doors for solid ones will enhance the soundproofing of an area with only a minimal extra cost.
PROFESSIONAL SOUNDPROOFING SOLUTIONS POLESWORTH
Some homes, such as those next to busy roads or on aircraft flight paths, naturally have more sound pollution problems and will require other ways to deal with the predicament. This is when employing the services of an established soundproofing company will bring the best results.
The initial questions you should be asked are:
- Exactly where is the major source of the sound coming from? i.e. Above, through the windows, doors, floors, walls or ceiling, or a combination of all sorts of things.
- Is it external noise or internal sounds that you wish to tackle? i.e. To reduce traffic, next door neighbours or passing trains, or is it from internally produced sounds from a teenagers bedroom or family room for example.
- What exactly is the size of the room or area that needs to be soundproofed?
- What area needs to be soundproofed? i.e. Is it a loft conversion, a brick walled room, a concrete lined cellar or a stud partitioned room.
Your answers to these queries will allow you to receive quotations for the different solutions available to suit your situation. There will be different remedies for each of the main key areas of the space that you want to soundproof.
PROFESSIONAL SOUNDPROOFING OF WALLS, CEILINGS and FLOORS
2 key strategies are required to soundproof any size of space or room:
- Improve the absorption of sound.
- Reduce sound resonating and amplifying.
To accurately analyse the soundproofing areas that need to be improved, an on-site survey needs to be conducted by a professional soundproofing team.
Conclusions from the survey will probably include the addition of materials of different densities to help enhance the soundproofing properties of the area. Soundproofing will be enhanced by the application of acoustic rubber and foam which will absorb sound waves and improve and a room's sound quality.
Any voids in the area may need some form of muffling material to be inserted between them to lower sound resonation. If you visualise a drum for example, you are looking at a sound amplifying void enclosed within a resonating material; essentially what you may find within floor and ceiling joists, or cavities in walls.
Mixed layers of differing density and mass materials work better at absorbing noise than a single soundproofing material layer of one kind. This is due to the fact that different frequencies are affected by different types of materials, therefore a variety of shapes, densities and layers within your soundproofing armoury are needed for the best results.
All soundproofing contractors in Polesworth have to follow the regulations for domestic buildings laid out in Part E of the Building Regulations. Part E of the Building Regulations is a requirement in law to protect your neighbours and yourself from the negative effects of noise pollution in a setting where folks work and live.
The Institute of Acoustics (IOA) and the Association of Noise Consultants (ANC) are recognised trade associations who provide training, qualifications and represent the very best in contractors and companies which offer soundproofing solutions. Any Polesworth contractor bearing IOA or ANC accreditation has been appraised to make sure they offer the highest standards, reliability and quality of work within the soundproofing industry.
