Soundproofer Yate Gloucestershire (BS37): If you're worried by the amount of noise in your Yate home, be it in a lounge, bedroom, home office or studio, you should contemplate putting in some soundproofing. In some circumstances you could be thinking about soundproofing so you don't disturb others in the house from a home cinema, children's room or music studio. Whatever your needs, soundproofing will give you sanity and peace of mind.
It is important for us to learn how sound travels and is transmitted around a building before it is possible to find strategies to prevent it from occurring.
Sound can move in a couple of ways:
1. Through objects by the vibration of the material.
2. In open spaces by movement of air.
Sound can also be transmitted through water, but unless you're thinking about soundproofing a pool or aquarium we'll just focus on its isolation through air and materials.
SOUND THROUGH THE AIR
Sounds can be transmitted out of and into a room through open ducting, gaps around doors, ill fitted windows and even electrical sockets and light fittings. All noise and sounds will create movement and vibration of the molecules in the air, and it is this that we pick up and hear. All sounds are moved through the air in this same manner; it does not matter if it's road traffic, machinery, children playing, aeroplanes or music playing that creates the sound.
If you try and think of your room as a bucket, and you are trying to find any leaks to seal before you can fill it with water.
SOUND TRAVEL THROUGH STRUCTURES AND OBJECTS
Sound waves can additionally be absorbed by, reflected by or transferred to solid materials and structures. Sound can be moved around a property from its source via the vibration of floors, ceilings and walls. Even in a room that's built from a solid material that's somewhat resistant to sound vibrations, such as a concrete lined cellar, the sound can be transmitted and maybe even amplified to other areas of the structure.
How do we stop this sound transference from affecting others? Soundproofing of course.
BASIC STEPS IN SOUNDPROOFING
Think about covering a bare floor, which reflects and resonates sound, with a carpet or rug. Not only can such a simple and straightforward solution help to reduce your noise pollution problem, but it can also jazz up the room. Curtains, in particular substantial blackout styles, will also suppress any noises from escaping or invading a room, economically and without requiring specialist soundproofing.
Locating and plugging any gaps or holes in the rooms, think sockets, doors, windows and light fittings, is also a simple job for a competent do-it-yourselfer. It is possible to buy specialist acoustic sealants in many DIY outlets which repress the transfer of sound by suppressing it. Acoustic sealants can be slightly more expensive than standard plaster or other sealant products, however the special design has far greater soundproofing performance and is definitely worth the small additional cost.
If you are luckily enough to be redecorating or renovating while dealing with your soundproofing requirements, then look into the possibility of installing an extra layer of plasterboard (also known as drywall, gyproc or sheet rock). This is an efficient and economical soundproofing material owing to its dense nature. If you are fitting a home office, movie room or studio then plasterboard will help to minimise sound pollution for that room, and can be readily decorated after installation. It's best to hire an experienced Yate tradesman to install plasterboard unless you have some experience in this kind of work.
One last simple soundproofing remedy is to look at the materials from which your doors are made. Hollow doors are comparatively cheap but their soundproofing qualities are a far cry from ideal. Solid core doors, while a little more expensive, can have a significant effect on the soundproofing qualities of a room.
PROFESSIONAL SOUNDPROOFING SOLUTIONS YATE
Some areas, for instance those beside busy roads or on aircraft flight paths, naturally have more sound issues and will need other ways to resolve the predicament. The best solution for resolving these issues is to get hold of a professional soundproofing and acoustic company from your local area.
Be ready to answer the four following questions during a survey of your specific soundproofing requirements:
- How big is the space you want to be soundproofed?
- What sounds or noise are you looking to subdue? i.e. External factors such as aircraft, neighbours playing loud music, traffic noise etc, or internal sounds from a teenagers bedroom or family room.
- Which is the main place where the sound creates the most issues? i.e. Is it emanating through doors/windows, up through the floors, from the walls or down from above, or is it a mix of all these things.
- What kind of property or room would you like to soundproof? Does it have a brick wall, a fully lined concrete wall or a stud partition wall etc.
An experienced soundproofing installation company in Yate will look into all these aspects to offer solutions to your noise problems over a range of budgets. They will offer different methods to soundproof each of the problem areas within your home.
PROFESSIONAL SOUNDPROOFING OF WALLS, FLOORS and CEILINGS
To soundproof any kind of room requires 2 key approaches:
- Reduce the effect of sound reflection, vibration and amplification by hard surfaces.
- Increase the absorption of sound.
A site survey is going to be needed to assess the aspects that need to be improved.
The specialists will work out ways to add materials with different densities and masses to improve the sound absorption of the room. The addition of acoustic foams and rubbers of different mass and density will help to absorb noise and reduce reflections and transmission sources.
Any voids in the area may require some kind of deadening material to be inserted between them to lower noise resonation. Wall cavities or flooring and ceiling voids can all be likened to a drum, where the space acts like an amplification source for undesired sounds.
Combined layers of materials with different densities and masses work better at absorbing noise than a single material layer of one type. This is due to the fact that different materials react in different ways with various frequencies and will deliver a much better acoustic solution to your soundproofing project.
Any soundproofing contractor in Yate will need to abide by the the Building Regulations (Part E), if your property is residential in nature. This regulation has the objective of protecting neighbours in the area from the impact and effect of noise pollution.
Look for contractors showing the logos of the Association of Noise Consultants or the Institute of Acoustics to make sure you are dealing with a business that is fully qualified and knowledgeable in the soundproofing industry. A reputable soundproofing specialist in Yate will have been subject to a verification procedure for the professionalism and quality of their workmanship to have become a member of these trade associations.
