Soundproofer Shoreham-by-Sea West Sussex (BN43): If the level of noise is causing problems in your property in Shoreham-by-Sea then it might be time to consider installing soundproofing to make your studio, lounge, bedroom or home office a haven of peace and quiet from your neighbours, fellow occupants and the outside world. You might also be aware of noise from a home cinema or family room seeping out and disturbing other inhabitants. Whatever your requirements are, soundproofing will provide you with peace of mind.
It's important to realise how sound travels and is transmitted around an area before it's possible to discover techniques to stop it from occurring.
Sound basically travels in two ways throughout your room:
1. By vibration of solid materials and objects.
2. By the vibration of air molecules.
Sound is also transmitted through water, however unless you're thinking about soundproofing an aquarium or swimming pool we will just concentrate on the isolation through materials and air.
SOUND TRAVELLING THROUGH THE AIR
Any open air-ducting, ill fitted windows, gaps around doors and even electrical switches and sockets can all affect the transmission of sound outside or into a room. All sound and noise will initiate the vibration and movement of the air molecules, and it is this that we identify and hear. It does not matter if it's aircraft, traffic, kids playing, heavy machinery or music playing, they all generate and transfer sound in the same way.
You must therefore think of a room as a boat and inspect it carefully for leaks before sailing off into the sunset.
SOUND TRAVELLING THROUGH OBJECTS AND STRUCTURES
Sound waves can additionally be reflected by, absorbed by or transferred to solid materials and structures. Sound can be transmitted around a dwelling from its original source through the vibration of walls, floors and ceilings. Care should be taken with solid concrete or brick walls, such as in basements, as sound can be reflected and amplified to other rooms in your house.
But, how can these sound transmitting effects be stopped from causing a problem? The answer is obviously, soundproofing!
BASIC SOUNDPROOFING STEPS
A bare floor surface is more resonant than one covered with a rug or carpet. Not only will such a simple solution reduce your problem with noise, but it can also spruce up the room. Window drapes and wall coverings can also be employed to enhance soundproofing and are simple to install and maintain.
Another cost-effective and do-it-yourself resolution is to plug any holes around windows, light fittings, doors and electrical sockets. It is possible to purchase specialist acoustic sealants in many building supply stores that suppress the transmission of sound by absorbing the sound waves. There might be a little difference in the price when compared with a normal sealant, however the soundproofing capabilities are a lot better and can make a big difference to a room's level of soundproofing.
If the room you are working on is an empty canvas and you are doing the soundproofing while you renovate or decorate, consider installing a skin of plasterboard or soundboard, (also called drywall, gyproc or sheet rock). Plasterboard is a very dense material that is both economical and efficient for soundproofing purposes. It's effective if you're putting in a music studio, cinema room or home office in your property in Shoreham-by-Sea. It is best to hire a competent contractor near you to install plasterboard unless you have some experience in this type of work.
One final simple soundproofing option is to look at the materials from which your doors are made. While hollow doors are lightweight and relatively affordable, their soundproofing characteristics are not anything to write home about. Solid wood doors, whilst a little bit more expensive, can have a considerable effect on the soundproofing qualities of a room.
PROFESSIONAL SOUNDPROOFING SHOREHAM-BY-SEA
If the sound pollution is excessive in your location, due to traffic noise from a busy road nearby, or aircraft passing overhead for example, then more serious methods to reduce the excess noise may need to be investigated. You'll obtain the most effective soundproofing outcome by employing the expertise of a certified soundproofing company.
They should ask the four following questions during the initial assessment of your requirements:
- What are the particular sounds that you need to be soundproofed? i.e. Is it sounds from within your house such as a music studio or home cinema, or external noises such as street noise, aircraft, next door neighbours, etc.
- How large is the space requiring soundproofing?
- What is the space you want to soundproof made from? (i.e. a plasterboarded partition wall, a fully lined concrete wall or a brick wall).
- What is the main place where the sound creates the most problems? i.e. Is it emanating from the walls, up through the flooring, through windows/doors or down from overhead, or is it a mixture of all factors.
With honest answers to these questions a good soundproofing installer in Shoreham-by-Sea will offer you solutions for your circumstances, and just as important, your spending budget. There'll be distinct solutions for each of the main key areas of the space you wish to soundproof.
PROFESSIONAL SOUNDPROOFING OF CEILINGS, FLOORS and WALLS
Two key components are needed to soundproof any sort of room:
- Reduce sound the resonating and amplification of sound.
- Update and increase the amount of sound absorption.
Doing this requires an on-site survey to see precisely what areas require enhancing from the present state.
A professional will look at the different ways to add mass and density to the areas with problems. The use of acoustic foams and rubbers of different mass and density will help to absorb noise and reduce reflections and transmission sources.
Any uninsulated voids in the room might require some sort of muffling material to be inserted between them to lower noise resonation. If you imagine these spaces as similar to a drum or wooden cajon then you will see that by leaving wall cavities and floor or ceiling joist spaces empty, you are creating a noise amplifying area.
Soundproofing is improved if multiple layers of varying density materials are utilised, rather than installing a single form of material. This is because the various different materials react in different ways with various frequencies and will provide a better acoustic resolution to your soundproofing exploits.
All soundproofing firms in Shoreham-by-Sea have to follow the regulations for residential buildings laid out in Part E of the Building Regulations. Such regulations should be followed so as to protect yourself and others from the harmful effects of noise pollution.
