Before we are able to find methods for countering sound pollution, we need to understand how sound travels.

Soundproofing Arbroath Scotland (DD11)

There basically two ways in which sound can move around a home:

1. Through objects by the vibration of the material.

2. In open spaces by movement of air.

Despite the fact that sound also travels through water, unless you're looking to eliminate sounds from an aquarium or swimming pool, we'll just be interested in how to reduce sound levels in the rooms of a structure.


If you take a good look at the area or room to be soundproofed and discover gaps around doors, heating ducts, single glazed windows and even electrical sockets and switches, these are all causes of sound transmission. All noise and sound will create the vibration and movement of the molecules in the air, and it is this that we identify and hear. No matter the source of the noise; machinery, music playing, passing aircraft, busy traffic or children playing, all sounds are created and transferred in precisely the same manner.

If you try to imagine your room as if it were a bucket, and you are attempting to identify any leaks to seal before you can fill it with liquid.


As sound moves through the air by vibrations, then it seems logical that such vibrations can be transferred to, reflected by or absorbed by different materials. The ceilings, floors and walls will all have an effect on how sound travels around an area, and may even transfer those vibrations to other parts of a building. Even a solid concrete room, such as a basement, can create a path of resonance which transmits any sound waves, and even amplify them, to other parts of a structure.

How can we stop these vibrations and sounds from having an adverse effect on other folks? Soundproofing is the remedy.


A bare floor surface resonates more than one covered by a rug or carpet. These soft coverings will help to absorb noise and can also add a bit of style to a previously bare room. Curtains, especially substantial blackout ones, will also repress any sounds from escaping or invading the area, economically and without requiring specialist soundproofing.

Track down areas in your room where noise can escape or come in; light fittings, windows, electrical sockets and door frames, and close off any gaps or holes. Plugging the gaps and holes with an acoustic sealant that can be purchased in many DIY centres and builders merchants, will make a huge difference to how your room sounds. They are a bit more pricey than standard plaster or sealants, but they are worthwhile for their soundproofing qualities.

For anybody renovating a property or redecorating a room, evaluate the soundproofing properties of adding another skin of plasterboard or soundboard, (also known as sheet rock, drywall or gyproc), whilst you're carrying out the project. Plasterboard is a fairly dense material that's both effective and economical for soundproofing a room. It's terrific for spaces such as home cinemas, music studios or home offices being built within your home in Arbroath. If you aren't proficient in putting up plasterboard and studding, it is better to employ a professional Arbroath contractor to guarantee you the optimum soundproofing gains from its installation.

One last simple soundproofing option is to check the materials from which your doors are made. Hollow doors are reasonably cheap although their soundproofing capabilities are a far cry from ideal. Solid doors, while a little more expensive, can do wonders for sound isolation in a room.


If you happen to live in a high noise pollution area, such as near an airport or next to busy roads, you'll need to be more ingenius in how to boost the soundproofing in your home. You'll obtain the most effective soundproofing results by employing the expertise of a skilled soundproofing specialist.

  3. What area needs to be soundproofed? i.e. Is it a plasterboard partition room, a loft conversion, a concrete lined basement or a brick walled room.
  4. What are the specific sounds that need to soundproofed? i.e. Is it outside noises such as street noise, neighbours playing loud music, trains etc, or is it from inside your home such as a teenagers bedroom or home cinema.

A certified soundproofing contractor in Arbroath will consider all these factors to offer remedies for your noise issues over a range of budgets. They will provide you with different strategies for soundproofing each of the troublesome areas within your room.


There are 2 areas that must be addressed to soundproof any room or space:

  1. Improve and update the amount of sound absorption.
  2. Cut down on the effects on the way sound is reflected off and transmitted through hard surfaces.

An on-site survey is going to be needed to assess the areas to be improved.

A professional will investigate the different ways to add density and mass to the trouble spots. Soundproofing will be enhanced by the installation of acoustic foam and rubber which absorbs sound waves and enhances and a room's sound quality.

Voids between floor joists might require insulation to eliminate the resonating gap between them. Wall cavities or flooring and ceiling voids can all be likened to a drum, where the space acts like an amplification source for any undesirable sounds.

Soundproofing is enhanced if multiple layers of varying density materials are used, as opposed to installing a single kind of material. This is due to the fact that the different material densities react in different ways with different frequencies and will deliver a better acoustic solution to your soundproofing.

All soundproofing contractors in Arbroath must follow the legislation for residential buildings as laid out in Part E of the Building Regulations. These regulations have the purpose of protecting neighbours in the immediate area from the impacts of noise pollution.

Any Arbroath contractor bearing IOA or ANC accreditation has been vetted to ensure they provide the highest standards, reliability and quality of work within the soundproofing industry.

Soundproofing Foam Arbroath

It would seem from doing some basic keyword research that one of the most frequent searches on Google and other search engines is for "soundproofing foam" and for local homeowners, "soundproofing foam Arbroath". Now, this suggests that many folks are hunting for a solution to soundproof their homes in Arbroath, and are hoping that acoustic foam will achieve this.

The last thing I want to do is be a bearer of bad tidings, but if you are convinced that the din from your noisy next door neighbours in Arbroath can be reduced with acoustic foam, you are on the wrong track.

The foam in the form of an "egg box" which you frequently see being sold in sheet or tile form is not actually intended for blocking out noise, but was really developed for use in music studios and comparable environments, to reduce resonation and echoing and improve the acoustic performance of a room. This sort of acoustic foam isn't efficient at stopping sound from passing through a party wall or preventing noise from travelling around the rooms of your property. Seeing as soundproofing foam is porous and spongy, it actually lets sound pass right through it, and doesn't have the density to block it.

If however, you are building a music room, this could be a valuable product for you to use, and is available in various thicknesses (normally 25 millimetre and 50 millimetre), and in different tile and sheet sizes.
