Soundproofer Ashington Northumberland (NE63): If the level of noise is an issue in your Ashington property then it may be time to consider installing soundproofing to make your lounge, studio, bedroom or home office a peaceful haven from your neighbours, fellow occupants and the outside world. You might also be aware of noise from a family room or home cinema room escaping and causing a disturbance to others in the house. Whichever soundproofing needs are required, it's essential for you and your neighbour's peace of mind and sanity.
Before we can discover ways in which to combat sound pollution, we should understand exactly how sound travels and is transmitted.
There are only a couple of ways in which sound can move around a home:
1. Through the vibration of objects or materials.
2. In open spaces by movement of air.
Sound also travels through water, but unless you are looking at soundproofing an aquarium or swimming pool we'll just consider its isolation through air and materials.
SOUND THROUGH THE AIR
If you look around the area or room to be soundproofed and notice ill fitting windows, open ducting, gaps around doors and even electrical sockets and switches, these are all causes of sound transmission. What we identify and hear as sound is actually air molucules being vibrated and reaching our ear drums. All sounds travel through the air in this same way; it does not matter if it's music playing, aeroplanes, children playing, traffic or machinery that produces the sound.
If you try to imagine your room as a bucket, you're trying to find any leaks that need sealing before you can fill it with liquid.
SOUND TRAVELLING THROUGH STRUCTURES AND OBJECTS
We know that sound is merely the vibration of air being processed by the ear, but that vibration is also absorbed by solid objects. The walls, floors and ceilings will all have an effect on how sound moves around a room, and may even transfer those vibrations to other rooms in a building. Even a room made from solid concrete, such as a cellar, can create a path of resonance which channels sound waves, and even amplify them, to other parts of a building.
How can we prevent these sounds and vibrations affecting other people? Soundproofing is the solution.
SIMPLE SOUNDPROOFING STEPS
Think about covering a bare floor surface, which resonates and reflects sound, with a rug or carpet. Not only will such a simple and straightforward solution reduce your problem with noise, but it can also jazz up the room. Hanging wall coverings and curtains can also suppress sound vibrations and reflections through walls and windows without the need to bring in a team of professional soundproofing installers.
Search for areas around the rooms where sound can escape or come in; doors, sockets, light fittings and windows, and seal up the gaps. There are some special acoustic sealants available on the market that absorb the sound waves, and don't transmit them to the surrounding materials. They might be a bit more pricey than standard sealants or plaster, but they're worthwhile for their soundproofing efficiency.
For anyone redecorating a room or renovating a property, consider the soundproofing gains of adding another skin of plasterboard or soundboard, (also called sheet rock, gyproc or drywall), while you are carrying out the project. This is a dense board that's an economic and useful soundproofing material. It's excellent for spaces such as home cinemas, studies or studios which are being built within a property. If you do decide to use plasterboard to aid your soundproofing it is advisable to hire a specialist fitter in Ashington, to gain the maximum possible effect from its installation.
The last solution for DIY enthusiasts is to look at the doors within your home in Ashington. While hollow doors are lightweight and fairly affordable, their soundproofing characteristics are not anything to write home about. Solid core doors, while a tad more expensive, can do wonders for soundproofing a room.
PROFESSIONAL SOUNDPROOFING ASHINGTON
If you happen to live in a high noise pollution area, such as near an airport or next to busy roads, you will have to be more inventive in how to improve the soundproofing qualities of your property. This is an instance when the services of a specialist soundproofing contractor will bring the most effective results.
They should ask the following four questions during the initial assessment of your needs:
- What kind of room or property do you want to soundproof? Is it a fully lined concrete wall, a brick wall or a stud partition wall etc.
- From what direction does the sound seem to be coming from? i.e. Through the windows, flooring, ceiling, doors or walls or a mixture of all of these.
- What's the size of the room or space that has to be soundproofed?
- What are the particular noises that need to soundproofed? i.e. Is it outside noises such as aircraft, next door neighbours, street noise etc, or is it from within your home such as a music room or family room.
An experienced soundproofing company in Ashington will look into all these factors to offer remedies for your sound problems over a range of budgets. Remedies might vary according to the different materials needed for each of the problem areas in your home.
PROFESSIONAL SOUNDPROOFING OF WALLS, CEILINGS and FLOORS
To soundproof any kind of room requires two key approaches:
- Reduce the effect of sound reflection, amplification and vibration by hard surfaces.
- Update and enhance the level of sound absorption.
To effectively assess the aspects that need improvement, a site survey must be carried out by a soundproofing specialist.
The experts will figure out ways of adding materials with different densities and masses to maximise the sound absorption of the area. The use of acoustic foams and rubbers of different density and mass will help to absorb noise and reduce transmission and reflection sources.
Any uninsulated voids in the area might need some kind of deadening material to be placed between them to lessen noise resonation. Floor and ceiling voids and cavities in walls can all be likened to a drum, where the space inside acts as an amplifying area for undesired sounds.
Combined layers of materials with different densities and masses do a better job of absorbing sound than a single material layer of one kind. The diverse materials will reduce different frequencies of noise and provide a more rounded feeling and auditory experience to a room.
Part E of the Building Regulations cover the soundproofing of residential properties, and will need to be followed by any soundproofing installer in Ashington. This set of regulations is a requirement in law to protect your neighbours and yourself from being affected by sound pollution in a setting where people work and live.
Trade associations in the soundproofing industry that offer guidance, qualifications and training are the Institute of Acoustics and the Association of Noise Consultants.
