Soundproofer Twyford Berkshire (SO21): If you're concerned about the amount of noise that's invading your Twyford home, be it in a bedroom, lounge, studio or home office, you should consider putting in some soundproofing. You might also be concerned about any noise from a home cinema or family room escaping and causing a disturbance to other inhabitants. No matter what soundproofing needs are required, it's vital for everybody's peace of mind and sanity.
Firstly it might help if we get our heads around just how is transmitted and travels before we can find ways to reduce any excessive noise escaping from or intruding into your home.
Basically, sound travels in two ways throughout your home:
1. Through the vibration of objects or materials.
2. In open spaces by movement of air.
Sound is also transmitted through water, but unless you're planning to soundproof an aquarium or pool we'll simply concentrate on its isolation via materials and air.
SOUND THROUGH THE AIR
Any single glazed windows, open ducting, gaps around doors and even electrical sockets and light fittings can all be responsible for the transmission of sound outside or into a room. All noise and sound will create movement and vibration of the air molecules, and this is what we pick up and hear. It matters not whether it's busy traffic, passing aircraft, kids playing, music playing or machinery, they all generate and transmit sound in the same manner.
It is helpful to imagine a room as a boat and carefully inspect it for leaks that need sealing before you can sail it.
SOUND TRAVELLING THROUGH STRUCTURES AND OBJECTS
Sound waves can also be absorbed by, transferred to or reflected by solid objects and structures. The walls, ceilings and floors will all have an effect on how sound moves around an area, and may even transfer those vibrations to other rooms in a dwelling. Even a solid concrete room, such as a cellar, can produce a resonance path which transports any sound waves, and even amplify them, to other rooms in a building.
But, how can these sound transmitting effects be stopped from creating an issue? The solution is not surprisingly, soundproofing!
BASIC STEPS IN SOUNDPROOFING
If you have bare floorboards or floor surfaces, consider laying a few rugs or cover with a carpet to help reduce any sound reflections and vibrations. Such a straightforward solution can help to damp down any noise and spruce up the room at the same time. Window drapes and wall coverings can also be used to boost soundproofing and are easy to install and maintain.
Look for areas in the room where sound can come in or escape from; doors, windows, sockets and light fittings, and seal up any gaps. There are unique acoustic sealants available on the market which suppress the sound waves, and do not transfer them to the surrounding materials. There might be a little difference in the price when compared to a standard sealant, however the soundproofing capabilities are far better and can make a big difference to a room.
If you're fortunate enough to be redecorating or renovating while dealing with your soundproofing, then look into the possibility of installing an additional skin of plasterboard (also called sheet rock, gyproc or drywall). This is a relatively dense board which is an economic and useful soundproofing material. It's excellent if you are putting in a home office, home cinema or music studio in your house in Twyford. If you're not proficient in fitting studding and plasterboard, it's best to employ a specialist Twyford contractor to guarantee you the best soundproofing improvements from its use.
The final do-it-yourself solution is to check out the doors in your home in Twyford. If you've got hollow doors fitted to rooms you'll find they can resonate and vibrate with any sound that they experience. Changing hollow doors for solid ones will noticeably enhance the soundproofing attributes of a room with only a little more cost.
PROFESSIONAL SOUNDPROOFING TWYFORD
If you live in a high noise pollution area, such as near an airport or next to busy roads, you will need to be more radical in your efforts to enhance the quality of the soundproofing in your property. This is when the services of a professional soundproofing contractor will deliver the best results.
They should ask the four following questions during a basic evaluation of your requirements:
- What kind of property or room do you want to soundproof? Is it a brick wall, a plasterboarded partition wall or a lined concrete wall etc.
- Is it internal noise or external sounds that you need to address? i.e. To stop traffic, noisy neighbours or aircraft, or is it from internally generated sounds from a music room or home cinema for instance.
- Precisely where is the main source of noise coming from? i.e. Above, through the ceiling, doors, flooring, windows or walls, or a combination.
- How big is the space you want to have soundproofed?
A professional soundproofing installer in Twyford will look at all these aspects to offer remedies for your sound issues for various budgets. There'll be different solutions for each of the key areas the room you want to soundproof.
PROFESSIONAL SOUNDPROOFING OF FLOORS, WALLS and CEILINGS
2 key strategies are required to soundproof any kind of room:
- Reduce the effect of sound reflection, vibration and amplification by hard surfaces.
- Improve and update the level of sound absorption.
A site survey is going to be necessary to look at the areas to be improved.
The team will look at ways to add materials with different masses and densities to boost the sound quality of the room. Soundproofing can be enhanced by the installation of acoustic rubber, foam and other materials which will absorb soundwaves and improve and the sound quality of an area.
Any noticeable voids in the room might require some form of deadening material to be placed between them to lower sound resonation. If you picture such spaces as similar to a drum then you can see that by leaving floor or ceiling joist spaces and wall cavities open, you are creating a sound amplifying area.
Combined layers of materials with different masses and densities work better at absorbing sound than a single material layer of one type. This is due to the fact that different materials react in different ways with different frequencies and will provide a much better acoustic resolution to your soundproofing.
Any soundproofing specialist in Twyford will have to abide by the the Building Regulations (Part E), if your property is residential in nature. These legislation must be followed so as to safeguard yourself and others from the harmful effects of sound pollution.
Trade organisations in the soundproofing sector that offer qualifications, advice and training are the Institute of Acoustics (IOA) and the Association of Noise Consultants (ANC). Only those Twyford firms that have been vetted and authorised by these organisations for professionalism, reliability and quality are allowed to display the logo.
