Soundproofer Rawmarsh South Yorkshire (S62): If you're anxious about the amount of noise in your Rawmarsh property, be it in a studio, bedroom, lounge or home office, you may want to think about putting in some soundproofing. Alternatively you may wish to soundproof a particular room to keep noise in, such as in a home cinema or family room, so that others aren't disturbed. Whatever your needs, soundproofing will offer you peace of mind and sanity.
First we need to discover how is transmitted and travels before we are able to identify ways to eliminate any excessive noise escaping from or intruding into your property.
Sound can move in only two ways:
1. Through the vibration of objects or materials.
2. By the vibration of air molecules.
As dolphin and whale songs can show, sound also penetrates long distance through water, but unless your intention is to soundproof an aquarium or pool we will look only at the techniques of soundproofing structures and rooms.
SOUND TRAVEL THROUGH THE AIR
Any single glazed windows, gaps around doors, open ducting and even electrical sockets and light fittings can all be responsible for the transmission of sound outside or into a room. All sound and noise will create the vibration and movement of the molecules in the air, and this is what we pick up and hear. All sounds are transmitted through the air in the same fashion; it matters not if it's aeroplanes, music playing, machinery, children playing or traffic that creates the sound.
It is helpful to imagine a room as a boat and inspect it carefully for leaks that need sealing before you can sail it.
SOUND TRAVEL THROUGH OBJECTS AND STRUCTURES
We know that sound is merely the vibrations of air reaching the ear, but those vibrations are also reflected by or transferred to solid 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 cellar, can generate a path of resonance which transmits sound waves, and sometimes amplify them, to other parts of a building.
How should we prevent these vibrations and sounds affecting other folks? Soundproofing is the answer.
SIMPLE SOUNDPROOFING STEPS
A bare floor surface resonates more than one covered by a carpet or rug. Such a simple and straightforward solution can spruce up a room and help dampen down any noises at the same time. Hanging wall coverings and curtains can also damp down sound vibrations and reflections through windows and walls without the need for a team of professional soundproofers.
Look for areas around the rooms where noise can come in or escape from; windows, doors, light fittings and electrical sockets, and seal up the gaps. It is possible to buy specialist acoustic sealants in some building supply stores that moderate the transmission of sound by absorbing it. There will be a little difference in the price when compared with a standard sealant, however the soundproofing capabilities are much better and can make an enormous difference to a room.
If the room you are working on is a blank canvas and you are doing the soundproofing as you decorate or renovate, consider putting up another skin of plasterboard or soundboard, (also called gyproc, sheet rock or drywall). This is a fairly dense type of board that's an economic and useful soundproofing material. If you're putting in a cinema room, games room or home office then plasterboard can help in reducing sound pollution for that room, and can be decorated easily after installation. If you do choose plasterboard to help with your soundproofing exploits it is better to hire a specialist fitter in Rawmarsh, to get the maximum possible benefit from its installation.
One last simple soundproofing solution is to check the materials from which your doors are made. If you have hollow doors installed in your rooms you will discover they can vibrate with any sound that they experience. If you are able to change to solid doors you will find it enhances your room's soundproofing at minimal extra cost.
PROFESSIONAL SOUNDPROOFING SOLUTIONS RAWMARSH
If you happen to live in a high noise pollution location, such as near an airport or next to busy roads, you'll have to be more imaginative in your efforts to enhance the soundproofing qualities of your house. You will obtain the very best soundproofing outcome by employing the services of a skilled soundproofing specialist.
They will ask the following four questions during the initial evaluation of your needs:
- How big is the area that you want to be soundproofed?
- Where is the majority of the noise pollution coming from? The ceiling, windows, doors, walls or floor.
- Is it internal sounds or external noise that you need to address? i.e. To stop neighbours, trains or traffic, or is it from internally generated sounds from a home cinema or music studio for example.
- What sort of area or room do you want to soundproof? Does it have a fully lined concrete wall, a stud partition wall or a brick wall etc.
Your answers to these questions will allow you to get quotations for the various available solutions that match your circumstances. The parts of your room that are responsible for the biggest issues will each need different solutions.
PROFESSIONAL SOUNDPROOFING OF WALLS, CEILINGS and FLOORS
There are 2 key areas that need to be addressed to soundproof any room or space:
- Lower the effect of sound amplification, reflection and vibration by hard surfaces.
- Update and improve the amount of sound absorption.
Doing this requires an on-site survey to ascertain precisely what areas need developing from the current condition.
A professional soundproofing company will investigate the different methods for adding density and mass to the trouble spots. The use of acoustic foams and rubbers of varying mass and density will help to absorb noise and reduce reflections and transmission sources.
Insulation between any existing voids will be improved or upgraded to lower the sound amplification and resonation of these "sound boxes". If you envision these spaces as similar to a drum then you'll see that by leaving wall cavities and floor or ceiling joist spaces open, you're effectively creating a sound amplifying area.
Combined layers of materials with different masses and densities work better at absorbing noise than a single layer of one material type. This is due to the fact that the various different materials react better with different frequencies and will deliver a better acoustic resolution to your soundproofing exploits.
Any soundproofing contractor in Rawmarsh must follow the Part E of the Building Regulations, if your property is residential in nature. These regulations have the purpose of protecting neighbours and other residents in the immediate area from the impact of noise pollution.
