Soundproofer Bagshot Surrey (GU19): If you're worried by the amount of noise that is invading your Bagshot property, be it in a home office, studio, bedroom or lounge, you may want to consider installing or upgrading the soundproofing. Conversely you may wish to soundproof a specific room to keep load noises in, such as in a home cinema or family room, to avoid disturbing others. In any event, soundproofing is vital for your peace of mind and sanity.
It is important for us to learn how sound travels and is transmitted around a structure before it is possible to discover techniques to prevent it from happening.
Sound basically moves in two ways throughout your home:
1. Through objects by the vibration of the material.
2. In open spaces by movement of air.
Sound is also transmitted through water, however unless you are looking at soundproofing an aquarium or pool we'll simply focus on the isolation through air and materials.
SOUND TRAVEL THROUGH THE AIR
Any heating ducts, gaps around doors, ill fitting windows and even light fittings and electrical sockets can all affect the transmission of sound outside or into a room. What we identify and hear as sound is basically air molucules being vibrated and reaching our ear drums. Irrespective of the source of the noise; heavy machinery, kids playing, traffic, music playing or aircraft, all sounds are created and transferred in precisely the same way.
Any gaps within the room can be viewed as leaks and will need to be blocked.
SOUND THROUGH OBJECTS AND STRUCTURES
We now know that sound is merely the vibrations of air reaching the ear, but those vibrations are also reflected by or transferred to solid objects. Sound will cause vibrations in the ceilings, walls and floors of your rooms, and may cause a resonation effect that is transmitted outside the area. Even if a room is built from a dense material which is somewhat resistant to sound, such as a concrete lined cellar, the sound can be transmitted and even amplified to other parts of the property.
However, how can these sound generating effects be prevented from causing a problem? The solution is naturally, soundproofing!
SIMPLE STEPS IN SOUNDPROOFING
A bare floor is more resonant than one covered by a carpet or rug. Not only will such a simple solution help to reduce your problem with noise, but it can also jazz up the room. Wall coverings or window drapes can also be employed to enhance soundproofing and are simple to install and maintain.
Another cost-effective and do-it-yourself solution is to plug any gaps or holes around sockets, windows, door frames and light fittings. Stopping up the holes and gaps with a specialist acoustic sealant that can be purchased in many DIY and building material shops, will make a huge difference to how your room sounds. Acoustic sealants are inclined to be a little more expensive than standard sealant products, however their remarkable soundproofing qualities far outweigh the small extra cost.
For anybody renovating a property or redecorating a room, look at the soundproofing benefits of adding another layer of soundboard or plasterboard, (also known as gyproc, sheet rock or drywall), while you are tackling this project. This is an efficient and economical soundproofing material owing to its dense nature. It is perfect for areas such as music studios, studies or movie rooms being built within your home in Bagshot. If you do decide on plasterboard to aid your soundproofing it is wise to use a specialist fitter in Bagshot, to achieve the maximum effect from its installation.
Last but not least you need to check all doors in the room you're seeking to soundproof. Hollow doors are reasonably cheap but their soundproofing qualities are far from ideal. Changing hollow doors for solid ones will significantly boost the soundproofing of an area with only a small extra cost.
PROFESSIONAL SOUNDPROOFING SOLUTIONS BAGSHOT
If the level of sound is extreme in your area, due to aircraft passing overhead, or traffic noise from a busy road for instance, then more serious ways to deal with the excess noise will need to be explored. The best solution for resolving these problems is to get in touch with a specialist acoustic and soundproofing company from your local area.
The initial questions you should be asked are:
- Is it internal sounds or external noise that you would like to tackle? i.e. To lessen overflying aircraft, noisy neighbours or road noise, or is it from internally created sounds from a family room or music room for instance.
- How big is the area you need to have soundproofed?
- Where is the majority of the noise pollution coming from? The floor, windows, doors, ceiling or walls.
- What kind of property or room do you need to soundproof? Is it a brick wall, a fully lined concrete wall or a stud partition wall etc.
With accurate answers to these queries a good soundproofing company in Bagshot will provide you with solutions to suit your circumstances, and just as importantly, your allotted budget. The areas of your room that are causing the biggest issues may each need different remedies.
PROFESSIONAL SOUNDPROOFING OF FLOORS, WALLS and CEILINGS
There are 2 areas that need to be addressed to successfully soundproof any space or room:
- Lessen the effect of sound reflection, amplification and vibration by hard surfaces.
- Maximise sound absorption.
A site survey will be required to pinpoint the areas that need to be improved.
A professional soundproofer will consider the different ways to add mass and density to the areas with problems. This additional mass will include ways to improve the absorption of noise by the use of acoustic rubber or foam to gain the maximum impact of sound reduction.
Voids between joists might require insulating to remove the resonating gap between them. If you envision these spaces like a drum or wooden cajon then you'll see that by leaving floor or ceiling joist spaces and wall cavities open, you are effectively creating a sound amplifying area.
Combined layers of materials with different densities and masses do a better job of absorbing noise than a solitary layer of one material type. This is due to the fact that the various different materials react better with various frequencies and will provide a much better acoustic resolution to your soundproofing exploits.
All soundproofing providers in Bagshot need to follow the regulations for residential buildings laid out in Part E of the Building Regulations. Part E of the Building Regulations is a requirement in law to protect your neighbours and yourself from being affected by noise pollution in a setting where people work and live.
Keep an eye out for companies showing the logos of the Institute of Acoustics (IOA) or the Association of Noise Consultants (ANC) to make sure you're using a business that is fully qualified and knowledgeable in the soundproofing sector. Any Bagshot firm showing IOA or ANC accreditation will have been vetted to make certain they provide the highest reliability, standards and quality of work within the soundproofing industry.

Soundproofing Foam Bagshot
I was intrigued to learn recently that one of the most commonplace soundproofing key phrases typed into Google and other search engines was "soundproofing foam", and local searches included things like "soundproofing foam Bagshot" and "acoustical foam Bagshot". That's actually quite interesting, as it indicates that Bagshot householders are under the impression that acoustic foam products are suitable for solving their noise problems.
It isn't a case of me trying to rain on your parade, but the fact is that this kind of product is not going to be the answer, and will certainly not reduce the din caused by noisy neighbours in Bagshot.
The "egg box" shaped foam which you often see for sale in tile or sheet form isn't actually meant for stopping the transmission of noise, but is really designed for use in music studios and comparable spaces, to reduce echoing and amplifying and improve the acoustic performance of a room. This product is not good for preventing noise from passing through a wall from a neighbouring property, or even as a buffer to stop sound from travelling around your home and causing a nuisance. Seeing as soundproofing foam is porous and spongy, it actually allows sound to pass through it, and hasn't got the consistency to stop it.
If however, you're creating a music room, this might be a useful product for you to use, and can be bought in different thicknesses (usually 25 millimetre and 50 millimetre), and in various sheet and tile sizes.
Acoustic Mineral Wool (AMW)
One of the handiest materials available for the soundproofing of properties in Bagshot, acoustic mineral wool has a number of applications for your noise reduction requirements. Acoustic grade mineral wool is specifically designed to be installed in the cavity spaces of floors, ceilings and walls, to improve acoustic performance, reduce reverberation and absorb sound waves.
Coming in "slabs" of 1200mm x 600mm and thicknesses of 25mm, 50mm, 75mm and 100mm, AMW is widely available from soundproofing stockists. Chemically inert and non-combustible, acoustic mineral wool is often partly made from recycled materials. It doesn't have a reaction with any substances or materials that it comes into contact with (i.e. masonry, plastics, brickwork, metal wall tiesetc), and does not encourage the development of mould, fungi or bacteria.
When used as a sound absorption infill between stud partitions, floor joists and suspended ceilings, acoustic mineral wool is particularly effective, and it's recognised in the construction industry for its fire, thermal and acoustic insulation properties. In relation to separating walls and floors, and so as to comply with Part E of the Building Regulations, AMW can be used together with other soundproofing products.
Soundproofing or Acoustic Underlay Bagshot
Installing an acoustic underlay is a terrific way of adding some soundproofing to your home in Bagshot without the need for any significant disturbance. These can be used under engineered wood, laminate, carpet or vinyl planks floor coverings, and are suitable for both concrete and wooden floors.
Where there's lots of impact noise as opposed to airborne noise, soundproofing underlay is especially effective. Impact noise tends to be a big issue for Bagshot property owners these days, with a rise in the popularity of "hard" floor finishes. Activities like children running around, general foot traffic and moving furniture, are the sort of noise we are referring to here.
Don't confuse regular carpet underlay with authentic acoustic underlay, because some unprincipled carpet distributors might try to palm you off with such products, with claims that they are suitable substitutes. If the noise issues you're experiencing are severe, be sure to invest in a good quality soundproofing underlay from a legitimate dealer.
Although soundproofing underlay is most effective for reducing impact noise, some products are much better than others with regards to airborne noise issues such as booming TV's, deafening music and shouting. You should discuss the exact sorts of noise you are endeavouring to minimise with your supplier or soundproofing expert, and this will enable you to choose the correct underlay for your noise cancelling goals.
