Soundproofer Stubbington Hampshire (PO14): If you are worried by the amount of noise that's invading your Stubbington property, be it in a studio, bedroom, living room or home office, you may want to contemplate installing some soundproofing. You may also be aware of noise from a family room or home cinema room leaking out and disturbing others in the house. No matter what soundproofing requirements are needed, it's essential for everybody's peace of mind.
First of all it might help if we get our heads around just how sound travels and is transmitted before we are able to find ways to eliminate any sound intrusion or escape from your home.
Sound basically travels in two ways throughout your room:
1. In open spaces by movement of air.
2. Within and around a solid object by reflection and vibration.
Despite the fact that sound can also travel through water, unless you're wanting to eliminate noises from an aquarium or pool, we'll just be concerned at how to soundproof rooms within a building.
SOUND TRAVEL THROUGH THE AIR
Any heating ducts, ill fitted windows, gaps around doors and even electrical sockets and light fittings can all be responsible for the transmission of sound into or outside a room. What we identify and hear as sound is basically air molucules being vibrated and being picked up by our ear drums. It doesn't matter whether it's aeroplanes, road traffic, children playing, music or heavy machinery, they all create and transmit sound in the same way.
Any holes in a room can be looked at as leaks and will have to be closed off.
SOUND TRAVELLING THROUGH STRUCTURES AND OBJECTS
We know that sounds are simply the vibration of air being processed by the ear, but that vibration is also absorbed by solid materials. The walls, floors and ceilings will all have an effect on how sound moves around an area, and may even transfer those vibrations to other rooms in a dwelling. Care must be taken with solid brick or concrete walls, such as in basements, because sound can be transmitted and sometimes even amplified to other parts of your house.
So, how can we stop these sounds having an impact on other people? Soundproofing obviously.
SIMPLE STEPS IN SOUNDPROOFING
Consider covering a bare floor, which resonates and reflects sound, with a carpet or rug. Not only will such a simple and straightforward solution help reduce your problem with noise, it can also perk up the room. Hanging curtains and wall coverings can also suppress sound vibrations and reflections through walls and windows without the need to bring in a team of professional soundproofing installers.
Another cost-effective and DIY remedy is to plug any gaps around light fittings, electrical sockets, door frames and windows. It is possible to buy specialist acoustic sealants in some builders merchants which subdue the transmission of sound by suppressing it. Acoustic sealants are inclined to be slightly more expensive than regular plaster or other sealant products, however the special design has far greater soundproofing performance and is worth the small additional cost.
For those of you who are renovating a property or redecorating a room, evaluate the soundproofing gains of adding a supplementary skin of plasterboard or soundboard, (also called gypsum board, sheet rock or drywall), whilst you're tackling this work. This is an efficient and economical soundproofing material due to its dense nature. It's great if you're putting in a home cinema, study or studio in your house in Stubbington. If you do choose plasterboard to aid your soundproofing it is a good idea to hire a professional fitter in Stubbington, to achieve the maximum possible effect from its installment.
Last but not least you need to inspect all doors in the room you're looking to soundproof. Hollow doors are a comparatively cheap option although their soundproofing capabilities are a far cry from perfect. If you are able to change to solid doors you'll discover that it improves your room's soundproofing more cheaply than some other alternatives.
PROFESSIONAL SOUNDPROOFING SOLUTIONS STUBBINGTON
If the sound pollution is excessive in your location, because of heavy traffic on a busy road nearby, or aircraft passing overhead for example, then more severe ways to reduce the excess noise will need to be explored. You will obtain the very best soundproofing outcome by retaining the services of an established soundproofing specialist.
The initial questions you can expect to be asked are:
- How large is the area that needs soundproofing?
- What noise or sounds are you looking to eliminate? i.e. External issues such as noisy neighbours, street noise, trains etc, or internal sounds from a teenagers bedroom or family room.
- Where is most of the noise coming from? The ceiling, windows, doors, flooring or walls.
- What area needs to be soundproofed? i.e. Is it a brick walled room, a concrete lined basement, an attic conversion or a plasterboard partition room.
Your answers to these queries will enable you to get quotations for the various available solutions that match your situation. The parts of your room that are causing the biggest issues may each need different solutions.
PROFESSIONAL SOUNDPROOFING OF WALLS, CEILINGS and FLOORS
To soundproof any kind of room requires two key approaches:
- Maximise sound absorption.
- Reduce the ways that sound is transmitted through and reflected by hard surfaces.
A site survey is going to be needed to assess the areas to be improved.
A professional soundproofing company will evaluate the different methods for adding density and mass to the trouble spots. The use of acoustic foams and rubbers of different mass and density will help to absorb noises and reduce transmission and reflection sources.
Voids between floor joists may need insulation to remove the resonating gap between them. Floor and ceiling voids and wall cavities can all be assimilated with a drum, where the space inside acts like an amplification source for any undesirable noise.
Combined layers of differing mass and density materials work better at absorbing sound than a single layer of one material type. The different materials will isolate different frequencies of sound and offer a more balanced auditory experience and feeling to a room.
All soundproofing technicians in Stubbington need to follow the guidelines for domestic buildings set down in the Building Regulations (Part E). Such regulations have to be observed in order to protect yourself and others from being negatively impacted by sound pollution.
Keep an eye out for contractors showing the logos of the Institute of Acoustics (IOA) or the Association of Noise Consultants (ANC) to make certain you are dealing with a business which is fully qualified and knowledgeable in the soundproofing industry. Only those Stubbington firms that have been appraised and approved by these trade bodies for professionalism, quality and reliability are allowed to display the logo.
