Soundproofer Yateley Hampshire (GU46): If your property in Yateley is being adversely affected by noise, maybe you should think about installing or upgrading your soundproofing to bring a new sense of tranquility to your bedroom, home office, studio or living room. Alternatively you might want to soundproof a room to keep load noises in, such as in a family room or home cinema, to avoid disturbing others. No matter which soundproofing requirements are needed, it will be vital for you and your neighbour's peace of mind.
Before we are able to identify ways in which to combat sound pollution, we need to understand precisely how sound travels.
Basically, sound travels in two ways throughout your room:
1. Through objects by the vibration of the material.
2. By the vibration of air molecules.
Sound is also transmitted through water, however unless you are thinking about soundproofing an aquarium or pool we will simply concern ourselves with its isolation through materials and air.
SOUND TRAVEL THROUGH THE AIR
Substantial levels of sound can be transmitted into and out of a room through open air-ducting, ill fitted windows, gaps around doors and even electrical sockets and light fittings. What we hear as sound is essentially air molucules being vibrated and being picked up by our ear drum. All sounds are transmitted through the air in this same fashion; it matters not if it's road traffic, passing aircraft, heavy machinery, children playing or music that produces the sound.
If you can imagine your room as a bucket, you're attempting to find any leaks which need sealing before you can fill it up with liquid.
SOUND THROUGH STRUCTURES AND OBJECTS
Sound waves can additionally be reflected by, absorbed by or transferred to solid materials and structures. Sound will cause vibrations in the floors, ceilings and walls of your rooms, and can lead to a resonating effect which is transmitted outside the room itself. Even a room made from solid concrete, such as a basement, can create a path of resonance which transports any sound waves, and sometimes amplify them, to other areas of a dwelling.
However, how can these sound generating effects be prevented from creating an issue? The answer is of course, soundproofing!
SIMPLE SOUNDPROOFING STEPS
Give some thought to covering a bare floor, which reflects and resonates sound, with a carpet or rug. These soft coverings will help to absorb sounds and can also add a touch of elegance to a previously bare room. Curtains, particularly substantial blackout styles, can also suppress any sounds from escaping or invading a room, economically and without the need for specialist soundproofing.
Another inexpensive and do-it-yourself remedy is to plug any gaps around electrical sockets, light fittings, door frames and windows. Sealing the gaps and holes with a specialist acoustic sealant found in some DIY and building material shops, can make a huge difference to how your room sounds. There could be a little difference in the price when compared with a normal sealant, but the soundproofing capabilities are significantly better and can make a huge difference to a room's soundproofing.
If your room is an empty canvas and you're soundproofing while you decorate or renovate, look at putting up a skin of soundboard or plasterboard, (also called drywall, sheet rock or gyproc). Plasterboard is a dense material that is both economical and efficient in soundproofing an area. It's perfect for areas such as studies, music studios or movie rooms being built within your home in Yateley. It is far better to hire an experienced Yateley tradesman to install plasterboard unless you've experience in its application.
The last solution for DIY enthusiasts is to check out the doors within your home in Yateley. If you have hollow doors fitted to rooms you will discover that they can resonate and vibrate with any sound that is aimed at them. Changing hollow doors for solid ones will improve the soundproofing qualities of a room with only a small extra cost.
PROFESSIONAL SOUNDPROOFING SOLUTIONS YATELEY
If the sound levels are excessive in your location, on account of aircraft flying over, or heavy traffic on a busy road for instance, then more serious methods to reduce the excess noise may need to be explored. The best way to resolve these issues is to bring in a decent soundproofing and acoustic contractor from your local area.
Be ready to answer the four following questions during a review of your soundproofing requirements:
- How big is the space that you need to be soundproofed?
- Exactly where is the primary source of noise emanating from? i.e. Above, through the flooring, doors, walls, ceiling or windows, or a mixture.
- What space needs to be soundproofed? i.e. Is it a concrete lined cellar, a loft conversion, a stud partitioned room or a brick walled room.
- What noise or sounds are you trying to subdue? i.e. External things like street noise, neighbours, overflying aircraft etc, or internal sounds from a family room or music studio.
A certified soundproofing contractor in Yateley will look into all these points to provide solutions to your sound issues over a range of budgets. There'll be distinct solutions for each of the key areas the space that you want to soundproof.
PROFESSIONAL SOUNDPROOFING OF CEILINGS, WALLS and FLOORS
Two key strategies are required to soundproof any size of space:
- Lessen the effect of sound reflection, amplification and vibration by solid surfaces.
- Sound absorption needs to be enhanced.
This will require an on-site survey to ascertain exactly what areas need enhancing from the current state.
The team will work out ways to add materials that have different densities and masses to maximise the sound quality of the room. Soundproofing can be enhanced by the installation of acoustic rubber and foam which will absorb soundwaves and improve and the sound quality of a space.
Any voids in the area may require some form of deadening material to be inserted between them to lessen sound resonation. If you envision these spaces like a drum then you can see that by leaving wall cavities and floor or ceiling joist spaces open, you are creating a noise amplifying area.
It is far better to use mixed layers of different densities to soak up unwanted sounds than a solitary layer made from one kind of soundproofing material. This is because different materials react in different ways with varying frequencies and will provide a better overall resolution to your soundproofing exploits.
