Arbroath Soundproofing & Noise Reduction Services

Soundproofer Arbroath Scotland (DD11): If the level of noise is causing problems in your Arbroath home then it might be time to look into putting in some soundproofing to make your home office, studio, living room or bedroom a sanctuary of peace and quiet from your neighbours and the outside world.

Whatever your requirements, soundproofing will offer you peace of mind and sanity.

First of all it would be advantageous to understand how sound travels and is transmitted before we can identify ways to reduce any excessive noise intruding into or escaping from your property.

Soundproofing Arbroath Scotland (DD11)

Basically, sound moves in two ways throughout your room:

1. In open spaces by movement of air.

2. By vibration of solid materials and structures.

Although sound can also travel through liquids, unless you are wanting to reduce sounds from an aquarium or pool, we will just be interested in how to soundproof the rooms of a building.


Significant levels of sound can be transmitted into and out of a room through open air-ducting, gaps around doors, ill fitted windows and even electrical sockets and switches. All sound vibrates the molecules in the air and this vibration is what we hear as sound. All sounds are moved through the air in the same manner; it doesn't matter if it's road traffic, heavy machinery, kids playing, passing aircraft or music playing that generates the sound.

If you can visualise your room as a bucket, and you are trying to find any leaks which need sealing before you fill it with liquid.


We know that sounds are merely the vibration of air reaching the ear, but that vibration is also transferred to solid objects. The walls, ceilings and floors will all have an impact on how sound travels around a room, and may even transport that vibration to other areas of a building. Even a room made from solid concrete, such as a cellar, can create a resonance path which transports any sound waves, and sometimes amplify them, to other areas of a structure.

So, what's the easiest way to stop these sound vibrations having a detrimental impact on other people? Soundproofing of course.


Think about covering a bare floor surface, which resonates and reflects sound, with a rug or carpet. These soft coverings and rugs will help to absorb noises and can also add a touch of elegance to an otherwise bare room. Curtains, particularly heavy blackout styles, can also repress any sounds from invading or escaping the area, economically and without requiring specialist soundproofing.

Locating and stopping up any gaps or holes in the rooms, think sockets, door frames, windows and light fittings, is also an easy job for a competent DIY'er. There are special acoustic sealants available to buy which suppress the sound waves, and don't transfer them to the surrounding materials. There could be a considerable difference in price in comparison with a standard sealant, however the soundproofing capabilities are far better and will make a massive difference to a room's soundproofing.

If you are luckily enough to be renovating or redecorating while dealing with your soundproofing requirements, then look at installing an extra skin of plasterboard (also known as drywall, sheet rock or gypsum board). Plasterboard is a dense material that is both effective and economical for soundproofing purposes. It's effective for areas like music studios, home cinemas or studies being built within your home in Arbroath. If you are not proficient in putting up framing and plasterboard, it's best to employ a professional team to guarantee you the optimum soundproofing gains from its use.

Soundproofer Quotes in Arbroath Scotland

One final easy soundproofing option is to look at the materials your doors are made of. Whilst hollow doors are lightweight and fairly inexpensive, their soundproofing capabilities aren't all that brilliant. Exchanging hollow doors for solid ones will enhance the soundproofing characteristics of an area with only a minimal extra cost.


If the level of sound is excessive in your area, because of heavy traffic on a busy road nearby, or aircraft passing overhead for example, then more substantial methods to deal with the excess noise may need to be explored. This is when employing the services of an established soundproofing service will deliver the best results.

Soundproofer Near Arbroath Scotland

The initial questions you should be asked are:

  1. What are the specific noises that need to soundproofed? i.e. Is it sounds from inside your house such as a music room or home cinema, or outside noises such as street noise, aircraft, next door neighbours, etc.
  2. Where is most of the noise pollution coming from? The doors, windows, floors, walls or ceiling.
  3. What is the area you wish to soundproof constructed from? (i.e. a stud partition wall, a brick wall or a fully lined concrete wall).
  4. How large is the space requiring soundproofing?

With accurate answers to these queries a good soundproofing company in Arbroath will work out solutions to suit your situation, and just as importantly, your budget. They will offer you different strategies to soundproof each of the main trouble spots within your home.


There are 2 key areas that need to be addressed to soundproof any space:

  1. Lower the effect of sound amplification, reflection and vibration by hard surfaces.
  2. Maximise sound absorption.

This requires a site survey to verify which areas require enhancing from the current condition.

The team will work out ways to add materials that have different masses and densities to maximise the sound absorption of the room. This additional mass will include ways to increase absorption of the sound energy by the use of acoustic rubber or foam to gain the maximum noise reduction impacts.

Any uninsulated voids in the room might need some type of deadening material to be installed between them to reduce noise resonation. If you think of a drum or wooden cajon, you're looking at a noise increasing void enclosed within a resonating material; in essence what you may encounter within floor and ceiling joists, or wall cavities.

It is far better to use mixed layers of different density materials to absorb undesired noises than a single layer made of one material. This is because the various frequencies are absorbed differently by different types of materials, therefore a range of shapes, layers and densities within your soundproofing panels are needed.

Any soundproofing specialist in Arbroath will have to abide by the Part E of the Building Regulations, if dealing with a residential property. These regulations have the aim of protecting neighbours and other residents in the immediate area from the impacts of sound pollution.

The Institute of Acoustics and the Association of Noise Consultants are recognised trade associations who provide training, qualifications and represent the best in contractors and companies who provide soundproofing services. Only those Arbroath businesses that have been appraised and authorised by these trade organisations for professionalism, reliability and quality are permitted to bear the logo.

Soundproofing or Acoustic Underlay Arbroath

If you're experiencing a lot of noise in your Arbroath home, an affordable way to minimise this without excessive disturbance is by adding some acoustic underlay to your floors. These are okay for use under engineered wood, laminate, carpet or vinyl planks floor coverings, and are designed for both timber and concrete floors.

Acoustic underlay is particularly beneficial when there is a lot of impact rather than airborne noise. Many properties in Arbroath tend to have a major issue with impact noise, and this is mainly due to the increased popularity of "hard" floor finishes, which are being more widely used right now. Upstairs rooms are the main source of such issues, with shifting furniture, general footfall and kids stomping around being typical worries.

Don't be conned by unprincipled carpet stores, who might attempt to palm you off with ordinary carpet underlay as a cure for your noise related issues - this kind of product shouldn't be mistaken for genuine acoustic or soundproofing underlay, which is what you really need. If the noise issues you're experiencing are serious, make sure you purchase a decent soundproofing underlay from a trustworthy supplier.

Although it is a valuable product with regard to impact noise, soundproofing underlay has differing degrees of success when it comes to reducing airborne noises such as booming televisions, deafening music and constant talking, and some products are certainly far better than others. Before buying an underlay you should speak to your soundproofing specialist or supplier about your specific circumstances, and identify the exact sorts of noise you're attempting to reduce.

Soundproofing Foam Arbroath

It would seem from some simple keyphrase research that a frequent search on Google and other search engines is for "soundproofing foam" and for home owners in Arbroath, perhaps "soundproofing foam Arbroath". Now, this implies that lots of people are hunting for a solution to soundproof their homes, and are hoping that soundproofing foam will accomplish this.

The last thing I wish to do is be the bearer of bad news, but if you are assuming that the din from your noisy neighbours in Arbroath can be significantly reduced with soundproofing foam, you are wide of the mark.

The familiar "egg box" style foam, that appears to be the trademark of soundproofing, wasn't actually developed for blocking out noise, but is meant for the reduction of echoing and amplifying in music studios and comparable environments, where it can also enhance the sound clarity in a room. This type of acoustic foam is not effective in stopping sound from passing through a neighbours wall or preventing noise from moving around the rooms of your property. Because it's porous, acoustic foam actually absorbs sound and allows sound to pass through, rather than stopping it.

If however, you are changing some free space into a music room, this might be a valuable product for you, and can be bought in various thicknesses (usually 25 millimetre and 50 millimetre), and in different sheet and tile sizes.

Acoustic Mineral Wool (AMW)

Having a range of applications for your sound absorption requirements, AMW (otherwise known as acoustic mineral wool) is one of the handiest materials available for the soundproofing of homes and buildings in Arbroath. Acoustic grade mineral wool is specifically designed to be installed in the cavity spaces of ceilings, walls and floors, to reduce reverberation, absorb sound waves and enhance acoustic performance.

Acoustic Mineral Wool Arbroath

Readily available in 25 millimetre, 50 millimetre, 75 millimetre and 100 millimetre thicknesses, AMW normally comes in 1200mm x 600mm slabs. Acoustic mineral wool is safe for use in your house in Arbroath, as it is chemically inert and and is non-flammable, it is also eco-friendly being made partly out of recycled raw materials. It won't react with masonry, plastics, metal wall ties, brickwork, or other materials or substances that it comes into contact with, nor does it encourage the growth of fungi, bacteria or mould.

AMW is notably effective as a sound absorbing infill when installed between stud partitions, suspended ceilings and flooring joists, and is widely recognised in the building sector for thermal, acoustic and fire insulation. With regards to separating floors and walls, and so as to comply with The Building Regulations (Part E), AMW can be used in conjunction with other soundproofing materials.
