Soundproofer Winkfield Berkshire (SL4): If you are anxious about the amount of noise in your Winkfield home, be it in a living room, home office, bedroom or studio, you might want to consider installing or upgrading the soundproofing. In some cases you could be thinking about soundproofing so that you don't disturb others from a music room, home cinema or children's room. Whatever your needs are, soundproofing will help to maintain your peace of mind and sanity.
It is important for us to learn how sound is transmitted around an area before it's possible to discover strategies to prevent it from happening.
Sound basically moves in two ways around a room:
1. The vibration or air molecules through the air.
2. Through objects by the vibration of the material.
Sound is also transmitted through water, however unless you are thinking about soundproofing an aquarium or swimming pool we will just concentrate on the isolation through materials and air.
SOUND THROUGH THE AIR
If you check out the area or room to be soundproofed and discover heating ducts, ill fitted windows, gaps around doors and even electrical sockets and switches, these are all causes of sound transmission. What we identify and hear as sound is actually the vibration of air molecules reaching our ear drums. It does not matter if it's aeroplanes, music playing, kids playing, machinery or road traffic, they all create and transfer sound in the same way.
Any holes within a room can be looked at as a leak and will have to be blocked.
SOUND THROUGH OBJECTS AND STRUCTURES
We all know that sounds are simply the vibration of air being processed by the ear, but that vibration is also absorbed by solid objects. The walls, ceilings and floors will all affect how sound moves around a room, and may even transfer those vibrations to other parts of a building. Care should be taken with solid brick or concrete walls, such as in basements, since sound can be reflected and sometimes even amplified to other rooms in your house.
How should we prevent these sounds and vibrations affecting other people? Soundproofing is the remedy.
BASIC STEPS IN SOUNDPROOFING
Consider covering bare floors, which resonate and reflect sound, with a rug or carpet. Such a simple and straightforward solution can spruce up a room and help dampen down any noises to boot. Curtains, in particular substantial blackout styles, can also stifle any sounds from escaping or invading the area, cost-effectively and without the need for professional soundproofing.
Locating and sealing any gaps around the rooms, think windows, light fittings, door frames and sockets, is also a simple job for a skilled do-it-yourselfer. It is possible to buy professional acoustic sealants in many DIY merchants which moderate the transfer of sound by absorbing it. Acoustic sealants can be a little more expensive than standard sealant products, but the special design has far greater soundproofing performance and is certainly worth the small extra cost.
For anyone redecorating a room or renovating a property, consider the soundproofing benefits of adding an extra skin of plasterboard or soundboard, (also known as sheet rock, drywall or gypsum board), while you're undertaking this work. Plasterboard is a fairly dense material which is both economical and efficient in soundproofing an area. If you're fitting a cinema room, home office or music studio then plasterboard will help reduce sound pollution for that room, and can be decorated easily after installation. If you aren't familiar with fitting plasterboard and studding, it is generally better to hire a professional team to guarantee you the optimal soundproofing gains from its installation.
The last solution for DIY enthusiasts is to think about the doors in your home in Winkfield. If you have hollow doors fitted to rooms you'll discover that they can vibrate and will resonate any sound that they experience. Exchanging hollow doors for solid ones will significantly boost the soundproofing of an area with only a small extra cost.
PROFESSIONAL SOUNDPROOFING SOLUTIONS WINKFIELD
If the sound pollution is extreme in your area, due to aircraft flying over, or heavy traffic on a busy road for example, then more serious ways to reduce the excess noise will have to be investigated. You will receive the best soundproofing outcome by using the services of an experienced soundproofing specialist.
The initial questions you should be asked are:
- How big is the room requiring soundproofing?
- Where exactly is the primary source of noise emanating from? i.e. Overhead, through the windows, doors, walls, ceiling or flooring, or a combination of all sorts of things.
- What area requires soundproofing? i.e. Is it a concrete lined cellar, a brick walled room, a loft conversion or a stud partitioned room.
- What are the specific noises that you need to be soundproofed? i.e. Is it external noises such as next door neighbours, passing trains, traffic noise etc, or is it from within your home such as a music studio or family room.
A certified soundproofing firm in Winkfield will take into consideration all these aspects to offer solutions to your sound problems for various budgets. There'll be distinct solutions for each of the main key areas of the space you wish to soundproof.
PROFESSIONAL SOUNDPROOFING OF WALLS, CEILINGS and FLOORS
To soundproof any type of room requires two key approaches:
- Reduce the effect of sound vibration, reflection and amplification by hard surfaces.
- The absorption of sound needs to be improved.
To effectively analyse the elements that need improvement, a site survey should be performed by a soundproofing company in Winkfield.
Solutions from the survey will probably include the addition of materials with different densities to help enhance the soundproofing attributes of the space. Soundproofing can be enhanced by the application of acoustic foam and rubber which absorbs soundwaves and improves and the sound quality of a space.
Voids between joists might require insulation to eliminate resonation spaces between them. Wall cavities or flooring and ceiling voids can all be assimilated with a drum, where the space inside acts as an amplifying area for any unwanted noise.
Soundproofing is enhanced if multiple layers of different density materials are employed, as opposed to installing only one kind of material. This is due to the fact that the various different materials react in different ways with varying frequencies and will deliver a much better overall solution to your soundproofing.
The Building Regulations (Part E) cover the soundproofing of domestic properties, and will need to be followed by any soundproofing firm in Winkfield. Such regulations should be adopted so as to safeguard yourself and others from the harmful effects of sound pollution.
Trade bodies in the soundproofing industry that offer guidance, qualifications and training are the Institute of Acoustics and the Association of Noise Consultants. Any Winkfield contractor showing IOA or ANC accreditation will have been appraised to ensure they offer the highest quality, reliability and standards of workmanship within the soundproofing industry.
