Firstly it will help if we discover just how sound travels before we are able to identify ways to reduce any excessive noise escaping from or intruding into your home.

Soundproofing Alnwick Northumberland (NE66)

There are only two ways in which sound can move around a room:

1. In open spaces by movement of air.

2. Through objects by the vibration of the material.

As dolphin and whale songs can show, sound also penetrates long distance through water, but unless your aim is to soundproof a pool or aquarium we will just look at the strategies for soundproofing rooms and structures.


Sound can be transmitted into and out of a room through ill fitting windows, open ducting, gaps around doors and even electrical switches and sockets. What we hear and identify as sound is actually air molucules being vibrated and reaching our ear drum. All sounds travel through the air in this same way; it matters not if it's nearby traffic, aircraft, music playing, heavy machinery or kids playing that produces the sound.

If you can imagine your room as a bucket, you are trying to find any leaks that need sealing before you fill it up with water.


We now know that sounds are merely the vibration of air reaching the ear, but that vibration is also transferred to solid materials. The walls, ceilings and floors will all have an impact on how sound moves around a room, and may even transport those vibrations to other rooms in a building. Even in a room that's encased in a solid material that's proofed against sound vibrations, such as a concrete lined cellar, the sound can be reflected and maybe even amplified to other areas of the property.

How do we stop these sound vibrations having a detrimental impact on other people? Soundproofing obviously.


Think about covering a bare floor, which resonates and reflects sound, with a carpet or rug. Not only will such a simple and straightforward solution reduce your problem with noise, it can also brighten up the room. Wall coverings or window drapes can also be employed to boost soundproofing and are easy to install.

Look for areas in your room where sound can come in or escape from; windows, light fittings, sockets and doors, and stop up any gaps or holes. It is possible to buy specialist acoustic sealants in some DIY outlets that deaden the transfer of sound by absorbing the sound waves. They may be somewhat more pricey than standard sealants or plaster, but are worth it for their soundproofing efficiency.

If the room you are working on is a blank canvas and you're soundproofing as you renovate or decorate, consider putting up a layer of plasterboard or soundboard, (also known as gypsum board, sheet rock or drywall). Plasterboard is a dense material that's both economical and efficient for soundproofing purposes. It is terrific for areas like music studios, movie rooms or home offices being built within your home in Alnwick. If you aren't experienced in putting up plasterboard and studding, it is best to hire a specialist Alnwick contractor to guarantee the optimal soundproofing results from its installation.

One final easy soundproofing remedy is to look at the materials from which your doors are made. If you have hollow doors fitted to rooms you will find they can vibrate and will resonate any sound that is aimed at them. Switching hollow core doors for solid core will boost the soundproofing of an area with only a minimal extra cost.


If the level of sound pollution is extreme in your location, due to traffic noise from a busy road nearby, or aircraft flying over for example, then more serious methods to combat the excess noise will have to be explored. The best way to resolve these issues is to call in a reliable soundproofing and acoustic contractor from the local region.

The first questions you will be asked are:

  1. From what direction do the sounds seem to be coming from? i.e. Through the ceiling, floors, windows, walls or doors or a mix of all.
  2. What is the size of the room or space that needs to be soundproofed?
  3. What noise or sounds are you attempting to suppress? i.e. External factors like next door neighbours, road noise, overflying aircraft etc, or sounds inside your home from a music studio or family room.
  4. What is the room you want to soundproof constructed from? (i.e. a brick wall, a lined concrete wall or a stud partition wall).

A professional soundproofing firm in Alnwick will look at all of these points to provide solutions to your sound issues over a range of budgets. There'll be different remedies for each of the main key areas of the space you want to soundproof.


2 key strategies are required to soundproof any sort of space:

  1. Minimise sound amplifying and resonating.
  2. Improve sound absorption.

An on-site survey will be necessary to look at the elements that need improving.

A professional will look at the different methods for adding density and mass to the problem areas. This additional mass will help to enhance the absorption of sound by means of acoustic foam or rubber to achieve the maximum impact of sound reduction.

Voids between joists may need insulation to eliminate the resonating gap between them. If you visualise these spaces as similar to a drum then you can see that by leaving wall cavities and floor or ceiling joist spaces empty, you're creating a noise amplifying area.

Mixed layers of differing mass and density materials do a better job of absorbing sound than a single soundproofing material layer of one type. This is due to the fact that the various frequencies are absorbed differently by different types of materials, therefore a variety of shapes, layers and densities within your soundproofing armoury are necessary for the best results.

Part E of the Building Regulations regulate the soundproofing of domestic properties, and will need to be followed by any installation company in Alnwick. Such requirements must be followed in order to protect yourself and others from being negatively impacted by noise pollution.

Look out for contractors showing the logos of the Institute of Acoustics or the Association of Noise Consultants to be sure you're dealing with a business which is knowledgable and fully qualified in the soundproofing sector. Only those Alnwick companies that have been appraised and approved by these trade associations for professionalism, reliability and quality are allowed to display the logo.
