Soundproofer Tynemouth Tyne and Wear (NE30): If noise is a problem in your property in Tynemouth then it might be time to look at putting in some soundproofing to make your studio, home office, living room or bedroom a retreat of peace and quiet from the outside world. You could also be aware of noise from a home cinema or family room seeping out and disturbing other inhabitants. No matter which soundproofing needs are required, it will be vital for you and your neighbour's peace of mind and sanity.
It is important to realise how sound travels and is transmitted around a structure before it's possible to find strategies to stop it from happening.
There basically two ways in which sound can be transmitted around a room:
1. The vibration or air molecules through the air.
2. Through objects by the vibration of the material.
As whale and dolphin song demonstrates, sound also travels long distances through water, but unless you wish to soundproof an aquarium or pool we'll just look at the strategies for soundproofing buildings and rooms.
SOUND TRAVEL THROUGH THE AIR
If you check out the room to be soundproofed and discover ill fitting windows, gaps around doors, open air-ducting and even light fittings and electrical sockets, these are all factors that can transfer sound. All sounds and noise will initiate the vibration and movement of the air molecules, and this is what we identify and hear. All sounds travel through the air in the same way; it doesn't matter if it's passing aircraft, heavy machinery, road traffic, music or children playing that creates the sound.
If you try to think of your room as a bucket, you are attempting to identify any leaks that need sealing before you can fill it with liquid.
SOUND TRAVEL THROUGH OBJECTS AND STRUCTURES
We now understand that sounds are simply the vibration of air being picked up by the ear, but that vibration is also absorbed by solid materials. Sound will vibrate the ceilings, floors and walls of your rooms, and may lead to a resonation effect which is transmitted beyond the room itself. Even a solid concrete room, such as a cellar, can create a path of resonance which transports any sound waves, and sometimes amplify them, to other parts of a property.
However, how can these sound generating effects be prevented from causing a problem? The answer is of course, soundproofing!
SIMPLE SOUNDPROOFING STEPS
If you've got bare floor surfaces or floorboards, consider covering them with carpet or putting down a few rugs to help in reducing any vibrations and sound reflections. These soft coverings will help to soak up noise and can also add a touch of style to an otherwise bare room. Hanging curtains and wall coverings can also dampen sound reflections and vibrations through walls and windows without the need for a team of professional soundproofers.
Look for areas in the room where sound can escape or come in; windows, sockets, light fittings and doors, and stop up any gaps. It is possible to purchase specialist acoustic sealants in some DIY stores that repress the transfer of sound by absorbing the sound waves. They might be somewhat more expensive than normal plaster or sealants, but they are worth it for their soundproofing qualities.
If the room you are working on is a blank canvas and you are soundproofing while you renovate or decorate, look at installing a layer of plasterboard or soundboard, (also known as drywall, sheet rock or gypsum board). This is a fairly dense type of boarding which is a perfect and economic soundproofing material. If you are fitting a home office, games room or movie room then plasterboard will help to minimise sound pollution for that room, and can be easily decorated after completion. If you aren't proficient in fitting plasterboard and framing, it is best to employ a professional Tynemouth contractor to guarantee you the best soundproofing improvements from its use.
The last DIY solution is to check out the doors in your home in Tynemouth. Hollow doors are a relatively cheap option but their soundproofing qualities are far from perfect. Solid doors, while a tad more pricey, can do wonders for improving the soundproofing in a room.
PROFESSIONAL SOUNDPROOFING SOLUTIONS TYNEMOUTH
Some properties, for instance those next to busy traffic routes or on aircraft flight paths, have naturally more sound pollution issues and will require other ways to solve the dilemma. The best way to resolve these issues is to get hold of a specialist soundproofing and acoustic firm from your local area.
Be ready to answer the following four questions during an evaluation of your particular soundproofing requirements:
- What sounds or noise are you trying to reduce? i.e. External factors like road noise, next door neighbours, overflying aircraft etc, or sounds within your house from a teenagers bedroom or family room.
- What are the dimensions of the area or room that has to be soundproofed?
- Where is most of the noise pollution emanating from? The walls, windows, doors, floors or ceiling.
- What is the space you wish to soundproof constructed from? (i.e. a lined concrete wall, a plasterboarded partition wall or a brick wall).
With answers to these questions a genuine soundproofing company in Tynemouth will offer you solutions to suit your circumstances, and just as importantly, your allotted budget. Solutions will vary according to the different materials needed for each of the troublesome areas in your environment.
PROFESSIONAL SOUNDPROOFING OF CEILINGS, FLOORS and WALLS
There are 2 key areas that must be dealt with to soundproof any space or room:
- Minimise sound amplifying and reverberation.
- The absorption of sound needs to be increased.
To precisely determine the areas that need to be improved, an on-site survey should be completed by a professional soundproofing team.
Conclusions from the survey will probably include the addition of materials with different densities and masses to help increase the soundproofing capabilities of the space. The use of acoustic foams and rubbers of different density and mass will help to absorb noise and reduce reflections and transmission sources.
Insulation between any existing voids will be improved to lessen the noise amplification and resonation of these "sound boxes". Wall cavities or flooring and ceiling voids can all be assimilated with a drum, where the space acts as an amplifying area for any undesired sounds.
It's better to use combined layers of different densities to deaden unwelcome sounds than a solitary layer fabricated from one type of soundproofing material. This is because the various different materials react better with different frequencies and will provide a better acoustic solution to your soundproofing exploits.
Any soundproofing company in Tynemouth must abide by the the Building Regulations (Part E), if your property is residential in nature. These regulations have the objective of protecting neighbours in the area from the impact and effect of sound pollution.
Look for contractors showing the logos of the Association of Noise Consultants or the Institute of Acoustics to guarantee that you're using a business which is fully qualified and knowledgeable in the soundproofing sector. A reputable soundproofing firm in Tynemouth will have been through a verification procedure for the professionalism and quality of their work to have been accepted as a member of these trade organisations.
