It is important for us to learn how sound is transmitted around a structure before it is possible to identify strategies to stop it from occurring.

Soundproofing Addlestone Surrey (KT15)

Sound can move in two different ways:

1. By the vibration of air molecules.

2. Within and around a solid object by vibration and reflection.

As dolphin and whale songs can show, sound also travels long distances through water, however unless your aim is to soundproof a swimming pool or aquarium we'll look only at the strategies for soundproofing structures and rooms.


Any open air-ducting, ill fitting windows, gaps around doors and even electrical sockets and light fittings can all be responsible for the transmission of sound outside or into a room. What we hear and identify as sound is actually air molucules being vibrated and being picked up by our ear drum. No matter what the source of the sound; children playing, aircraft, music playing, road traffic or machinery, all sound is created and transmitted in precisely the same fashion.

If you try to think of your room as if it were a bucket, and you are trying to find any leaks which need sealing before you fill it up with water.


We now understand that sounds are just the vibration of air reaching the ear, but that vibration is also reflected by or transferred to solid materials. The walls, ceilings and floors will all have an impact on how sound moves around an area, and can even transport that vibration to other rooms in a property. Even a room made of solid concrete, such as a cellar, can produce a path of resonance which transports sound waves, and even amplify them, to other areas of a building.

So, how can we stop this sound transference having an impact on other people? Soundproofing obviously.


A bare floor is more resonant than one covered with a rug or carpet. Such a simple solution can spruce up a room and help dampen down any noise at the same time. Hanging wall coverings and curtains can also suppress sound vibrations and reflections through windows and walls without the need to bring in a professional team of soundproofers.

Another cost-effective and do-it-yourself solution is to plug any holes or gaps around light fittings, doors, windows and sockets. Plugging the holes and gaps with a professional acoustic sealant that can be purchased in some DIY shops and builders merchants, can make a huge difference to sound transmission in your room. There might be a little difference in the price when compared to a normal sealant, however the soundproofing abilities are much better and can make a massive difference to a room.

For anyone redecorating a room or renovating a property, evaluate the soundproofing gains of adding an extra skin of soundboard or plasterboard, (also called drywall, gypsum board or sheet rock), while you are undertaking this project. Plasterboard is a dense material that's both economical and efficient in soundproofing a room. It's effective if you are installing a home cinema, games room or home office in your home in Addlestone. If you do decide to use plasterboard to help with your soundproofing exploits it is a good idea to employ a professional fitter in Addlestone, to get the maximum possible effect from its installment.

Soundproofer Quotes in Addlestone Surrey

Last but not least you should inspect all doors in the room that you're soundproofing. Hollow doors are a relatively cheap option but their soundproofing qualities are a far cry from the best. If you're able to change to solid doors you will discover that it enhances your soundproofing more cheaply than some other solutions.


If you live in a high sound pollution area, such as near an airport or next to busy roads, you will have to be more creative in your attempts to boost the quality of the soundproofing in your home. You will get the most effective soundproofing outcome by retaining the services of a skilled soundproofing company.

  3. Where is most of the noise pollution emanating from? The walls, doors, flooring, ceiling or windows.
  4. What noise or sounds are you wanting to reduce? i.e. External issues such as next door neighbours, passing trains, road noise etc, or sounds inside your property from a family room or music studio.

Your answers to such queries will allow you to get quotes for the various available solutions to suit your needs. Solutions will vary in line with the different materials required for each of the problem areas within your environment.


2 key components are required to soundproof any sort of space or room:

  1. Increase and maximise the amount of sound absorption.

The insulation between any existing voids will be upgraded or improved to reduce the noise resonation and amplification of these "sound boxes". If you visualise a drum or wooden cajon, you're looking at a sound amplifying void enclosed within a resonating material; essentially what you might find inside floor and ceiling joists, or cavities in walls.

Soundproofing is improved if multiple layers of different density materials are employed, as opposed to installing a single type of material. This is due to the fact that different frequencies are affected by different materials, therefore a diversity of shapes, densities and layers within your soundproofing panels are required.

Part E of the Building Regulations cover the soundproofing of residential properties, and will need to be applied by any installation company in Addlestone. Such requirements have to be observed so as to protect yourself and neighbours from being negatively impacted by sound pollution.

Keep an eye out for contractors bearing the logos of the Institute of Acoustics (IOA) or the Association of Noise Consultants (ANC) to make sure you're dealing with a business that's knowledgable and fully qualified in the soundproofing industry. Any Addlestone contractor displaying ANC or IOA accreditation has been appraised to make sure they offer the highest quality, standards and reliability of work within the industry.

Soundproofing Underlay Addlestone

A very good way of adding a degree of soundproofing to your property in Addlestone, without any significant disruption, is to add soundproofing or acoustic underlay. These underlays can be used successfully on both wood and concrete floors, and underneath engineered wood, laminate, vinyl planks and carpet floor coverings.

When your problem is for the most part impact noise and not airborne noise, soundproofing underlay is an especially effective treatment. A recent increase in the popularity of "hard" floor finishes in Addlestone properties, means issues with impact noise are becoming more and more widespread. Such things as kids stomping around, moving furniture and general footfall, are the type of noise we're referring to here.

Although some carpet distributors may try to palm you off with regular carpet underlay, claiming that it has decent soundproofing attributes, this shouldn't be confused with genuine soundproofing or acoustic underlay. If you have significant noise concerns be sure to invest in a good quality acoustic underlay.

While it's a winning product with regard to impact noise, acoustic underlay has varying levels of success when it comes to dealing with airborne noise issues like blaring TV's, deafening music and incessant talking, and some products are better than others. Therefore, it's important to ascertain the exact sorts of noise you're seeking to lower before buying an underlay product, and chat with the soundproofing specialist or supplier about your particular situation.

Soundproofing Foam Addlestone

Just recently I thought I'd check out what folks in Addlestone are searching for with regards to soundproofing, and apparently when searching on Google and Bing one of the most commonly types in requests was for "soundproofing foam". And from a purely local point of view enquiries include things like "soundproofing foam Addlestone". Now, that's quite worrying as this would indicate that local home owners are turning to acoustic foam as an answer to their noise problems in Addlestone.

The last thing I am looking to do is be the bearer of bad tidings, but if you're assuming that the racket from your noisy next door neighbours in Addlestone can be significantly reduced with soundproofing foam, you are wide of the mark.

Blocking out noise isn't actually the function of this familiar "egg box" style foam, which was in fact designed for use in music studios and comparable settings, where it can enhance the sound clarity in a room, and reduce reverberation, echoing and amplification. Soundproofing foam of this sort isn't good at stopping noise from travelling freely around your house, or stopping sound from passing through a wall. As opposed to blocking it, acoustic foam allows sound to pass through it, because it is actually porous.

If however, you're changing a space into a music room, this may be a useful product for you to use, and is available in various thicknesses (usually 25mm and 50mm), and in different sheet and tile sizes.
