Soundproofer Pontypridd Wales (CF37): If your property in Pontypridd is being impacted by noise, perhaps you should look into installing some soundproofing to bring a new sense of tranquility to your studio, bedroom, home office or living room. You could also be concerned about any noise from a family room or home cinema room seeping out and causing a disturbance to other inhabitants. No matter what soundproofing needs are required, it's vital for you and your neighbour's peace of mind.
First it might help if we discover just how sound moves and can be transmitted before we can identify ways to reduce any loud noise getting into or out of your property.
Sound basically moves in two ways throughout your room:
1. By vibration of solid materials and structures.
2. Through the air by vibration of air molecules.
Sound can also travel through water, but unless you're planning to soundproof a pool or aquarium we'll just concern ourselves with the isolation through materials and air.
SOUND TRAVEL THROUGH THE AIR
If you look around the space to be soundproofed and notice gaps around doors, open ducting, ill fitting windows and even light fittings and electrical sockets, these are all aspects that can cause the transmission of sound. What we identify and hear as sound is actually the vibration of air molecules reaching our ear drum. It matters not whether it's children playing, music, traffic, heavy machinery or aeroplanes, they all create and transmit sound in the same manner.
Any holes in the room can be looked at as leaks and will have to be closed off.
SOUND THROUGH STRUCTURES AND OBJECTS
As sound moves through the air by vibration, then it seems logical that this vibration can be transferred to, reflected by or absorbed by different materials. Sound can be transmitted around a dwelling from its source via the vibration of ceilings, walls and floors. Even a solid concrete room, such as a basement, can produce a resonance path which transports sound waves, and sometimes amplify them, to other rooms in a building.
But, how can these sound transmitting effects be prevented from causing a problem? The answer is not surprisingly, soundproofing!
BASIC SOUNDPROOFING STEPS
A bare floor is more resonant than one covered by a carpet or rug. Such a straightforward solution can help to damp down any noise and enhance the room to boot. Hanging curtains and wall coverings can also dampen sound vibrations and reflections through walls and windows without the need to bring in a professional team of soundproofers.
Finding and stopping up any holes or gaps around the rooms, think doors, light fittings, sockets and windows, is also a straightforward task for a skilled do-it-yourselfer. Stopping up the gaps and holes with an acoustic sealant found in many DIY outlets and builders merchants, will make a big difference to sound transmission in your room. Acoustic sealants can be a touch more pricey than standard sealant products, however their unique soundproofing qualities far outweigh the small additional cost.
For anyone renovating a property or redecorating a room, consider the soundproofing gains of adding another layer of soundboard or plasterboard, (also called sheet rock, gyproc or drywall), while you're carrying out the work. This is an efficient and economical soundproofing material owing to its dense nature. If you are fitting a home cinema, music studio or home office then plasterboard can help in reducing sound pollution for that room, and can be decorated easily after completion. If you do decide on plasterboard to help with your soundproofing it is wise to bring in a professional fitter in Pontypridd, to get the maximum effect from its installment.
One final easy soundproofing option is to check the materials from which your doors are made. Hollow doors are a relatively cheap option but their soundproofing capabilities are a far cry from the best. Changing hollow doors for solid ones will appreciably improve the soundproofing qualities of an area with only a little more cost.
PROFESSIONAL SOUNDPROOFING PONTYPRIDD
If you live in a high sound pollution location, such as near an airport or next to busy roads, you will need to be more innovative in your efforts to increase the soundproofing in your property. You will obtain the most effective soundproofing results by employing the services of a professional soundproofing specialist.
They will ask the four following questions during a basic appraisal of your needs:
- What is the space you wish to soundproof constructed from? (i.e. a plasterboarded partition wall, a brick wall or a fully lined concrete wall).
- From which direction does the sound seem to be coming? i.e. Through the windows, doors, walls, floor or ceiling or a combination of all of these.
- What noise or sounds are you attempting to suppress? i.e. External issues such as passing trains, street noise, next door neighbours etc, or sounds inside your home from a teenagers bedroom or family room.
- How big is the room you wish to be soundproofed?
A certified soundproofing company in Pontypridd will take into consideration all of these factors to provide solutions to your sound problems over a range of budgets. The parts of your room that are causing the biggest noise issues may each need different remedies.
PROFESSIONAL SOUNDPROOFING OF FLOORS, WALLS and CEILINGS
Two key components are required to soundproof any size of space or room:
- Reduce the effect of sound amplification, reflection and vibration by solid surfaces.
- Update and improve the amount of sound absorption.
A site survey will be needed to look at the elements to be improved.
The specialists will work out ways of adding materials with different densities and masses to maximise the sound absorption qualities of the area. Soundproofing will be enhanced by the application of acoustic rubber and foam which will absorb excess noise and improve and the sound quality of a space.
The insulation between any existing voids will be upgraded to reduce the sound resonation and amplification of these "sound boxes". Wall cavities or flooring and ceiling voids can all be likened to a drum, where the space acts like an amplification source for unwanted noise.
It is far better to use mixed layers of different densities to deaden unwanted sounds than a single layer made of one sort of material. The various materials will eliminate different sound frequencies and provide a more sympathetic feeling and auditory experience to a room.
Any soundproofing specialist in Pontypridd must comply with the Part E of the Building Regulations, if your property is residential in nature. 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 folks live and work.
