It is important for us to learn how sound travels and is transmitted around a structure before it's possible to find strategies to prevent it from happening.

Soundproofing Balderton Nottinghamshire (NG24)

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

1. By the vibration of air molecules.

2. By vibration of solid materials and structures.

Despite the fact that sound can also travel through water, unless you're eager to isolate noises from a pool or aquarium, we will just be interested in how to soundproof rooms within a building.


Sound can be transmitted out of and into a room through ill fitting windows, gaps around doors, open ducting and even electrical sockets and light fittings. All noise and sounds will create the vibration and movement of the air molecules, and this is what we pick up and hear. It doesn't matter whether it's passing aircraft, heavy machinery, music, kids playing or busy traffic, they all produce and transmit sound in the same way.

You must therefore visualise a room as a boat and carefully inspect it for leaks that require sealing.


We now know that sounds are merely the vibration of air reaching the ear, but that vibration is also absorbed by solid materials. The ceilings, walls and floors will all have an effect on how sound moves around an area, and may even transfer those vibrations to other rooms in a building. Care has to be taken with brick or solid concrete walls, such as a cellar, as sound can be transmitted and sometimes even amplified to other areas of your house.

However, how can these effects be prevented from creating an issue? The answer is obviously, soundproofing!


A bare floor surface resonates more than one covered by a carpet or rug. Such a simple solution can help to damp down any noise and enhance the room to boot. Curtains, and particularly substantial blackout types, can also subdue any sounds from escaping or invading the area, cost-effectively and without the need for specialist soundproofing.

Finding and plugging any gaps in the room, think windows, electrical sockets, light fittings and door frames, is also a simple task for a competent DIY enthusiast. There are some unique acoustic sealants available on the market that absorb the sound waves, and don't transmit them to the surrounding materials. There will be a little difference in the price when compared with a normal sealant, however the soundproofing capabilities are much better and will make a huge difference to a room's soundproofing.

For anyone redecorating a room or renovating a property, consider the soundproofing gains of adding a supplementary layer of soundboard or plasterboard, (also known as gypsum board, sheet rock or drywall), while you are tackling this project. This is a fairly dense type of boarding which is a perfect and economic soundproofing material. It's excellent if you're installing a games room, movie room or home office in your property in Balderton. If you do decide to use plasterboard to help with your soundproofing exploits it is best to bring in a specialist fitter in Balderton, to gain the maximum benefit from its installation.

Soundproofer Quotes in Balderton Nottinghamshire

One last easy soundproofing treatment is to examine the materials your doors are made of. Hollow doors are comparatively cheap but their soundproofing qualities are far from ideal. Exchanging hollow core doors for solid core will appreciably boost the soundproofing of a room with only a small extra cost.


Some areas, for example those on aircraft flight-paths or next to busy roads, naturally have more sound issues and will require other ways to resolve the dilemma. The best way to resolve these issues is to contact a decent soundproofing and acoustic firm from your local area.

Soundproofer Near Balderton Nottinghamshire

Be ready to answer the following four questions during a review of your soundproofing needs:

  1. What kind of room or area do you wish to soundproof? Is it a plasterboarded partition wall, a brick wall or a lined concrete wall etc.
  2. Where is most of the noise pollution coming from? The doors, floors, windows, walls or ceiling.
  3. What's the size of the area or room that needs to be soundproofed?
  4. What are the particular noises that you need to be soundproofed? i.e. Is it outside noises such as neighbours, passing trains, traffic noise etc, or is it from within your home such as a home cinema or teenagers bedroom.

With accurate answers to these queries a trustworthy soundproofing company in Balderton will figure out solutions to suit your circumstances, and just as important, your budget. The areas of your room that are causing the biggest noise issues will each require different remedies.


To soundproof any sort of room requires 2 key approaches:

  1. Reduce sound the reverberation and amplification of sound.
  2. Increase the absorption of sound.

This will require an on-site survey to determine precisely what areas need enhancing from the present state.

The installer will figure out ways of adding materials that have different masses and densities to enhance the sound quality of the area. This extra mass will help to enhance absorption of the sound energy through the use of acoustic foam or rubber to gain the maximum impact of noise reduction.

Voids between floor joists might require insulation to eliminate resonation gaps between them. If you imagine a drum for example, you're looking at a noise increasing void enclosed within a resonating material; essentially what you may encounter inside floor and ceiling joists, or wall cavities.

Combined layers of differing mass and density materials do a better job of absorbing noise than a single layer of one material type. This is because the various different materials react in different ways with different frequencies and will provide a much better overall resolution to your soundproofing exploits.

Part E of the Building Regulations focus on the soundproofing of residential properties, and will have to be applied by any installation company in Balderton. These regulations should be observed so as to safeguard yourself and others from being negatively impacted by sound pollution.

Trade organisations in the soundproofing industry that offer guidance, training and qualifications are the Institute of Acoustics and the Association of Noise Consultants. Only those Balderton companies that have been appraised and authorised by these trade associations for reliability, quality and professionalism are permitted to display the logo.

Acoustic Mineral Wool

One of the most useful materials for soundproofing houses in Balderton, acoustic mineral wool has a number of applications for your sound absorption needs. When placed in the cavity spaces of ceilings, walls and floors, acoustic grade mineral wool is specifically designed to enhance acoustic performance, dampen vibrations and absorb sound waves.

Acoustic Mineral Wool Balderton

Typically available in "slabs" of 600mm x 1200mm, acoustic mineral wool also comes in several thicknesses (25 millimetres, 50 millimetres, 75 millimetres and 100 millimetres). Acoustic mineral wool is often made with recycled raw materials (about 20%), is chemically inert, and is non-combustible. It won't have a reaction with any materials that it comes into close contact with (i.e. metal wall ties, plastics, masonry, brickworketc), and doesn't encourage the development of bacteria, mould or fungi.

Recognised in the building industry for its fire, acoustic and thermal insulation attributes, acoustic mineral wool is notably effective as a sound absorption filler when installed between flooring joists, stud partitions and suspended ceilings. With regards to separating walls and floors, and in order to conform to Part E of the Building Regulations, AMW can be used along with other soundproofing materials.

Acoustic or Soundproofing Underlay Balderton

Installing an acoustic or soundproofing underlay is a terrific way of adding a degree of soundproofing to your Balderton home without causing any significant disturbance. These can be used beneath carpet, engineered wood, vinyl planks or laminate floor coverings, and are designed for both concrete and wood floors.

Essentially, acoustic underlay can be a particularly effective solution when your problem is for the most part impact noise and not an airborne noise issue. An increase in the popularity of hard floor finishes in Balderton homes, means that problems with impact noise are becoming more and more widespread. This is particularly problematic in upstairs rooms, and the type of noise that we are talking about here is general footfall, moving furniture and kids running around.

Although some carpet stockists might try to palm you off with ordinary carpet underlay with claims that it has soundproofing benefits, this shouldn't be confused with authentic soundproofing underlay. If your noise issues are severe, be sure you purchase a decent soundproofing underlay from a respectable supplier.

Although acoustic underlay is an effective product for impact noise, some are far better than others when faced with airborne noises like blaring televisions, deafening music and constant talking. You should discuss the precise types of noise you are endeavouring to minimise with your supplier or soundproofing specialist, and this will allow you to determine the best underlay for your noise beating needs.

Soundproofing Foam Balderton

I recently thought that I'd take a look at what householders in Balderton are searching for in relation to soundproofing, and apparently when searching on Google one of the most popular requests is for "soundproofing foam". And from a purely local point of view queries include "soundproofing foam Balderton". Now, that's rather interesting as this would imply that local property owners are looking to acoustic foam products as a solution to their noise problems in Balderton.

It is not my intention to be the bearer of bad news, but most noise related issues can't be helped by acoustic foam, and if your aim is to reduce the din caused by noisy next door neighbours in Balderton, you will need to look for something better.

Often sold in tile or sheet form, this "egg box" shaped foam that you frequently see on sale isn't actually designed for stopping the transmission of noise, but is really meant to be used in music studios and similar settings, to improve the acoustic performance of a room, and help to reduce reverberation and echoing. It isn't good for preventing sound from travelling around your house, or preventing noise from penetrating the wall of a neighbouring property. As opposed to blocking it, soundproofing foam allows sound to pass through it, because it is actually porous.

It may be that you actually have a music room in your home in Balderton, in which case this foam could be handy for you.
