It is important to realise how sound travels around a structure before it is possible to discover solutions to prevent it from happening.

Soundproofing Barrhead Scotland (G78)

Sound basically moves in two ways throughout your room:

1. Through the air by vibration of air molecules.

2. By vibration of solid materials and structures.

Sound is also transmitted through water, however unless you're looking at soundproofing a swimming pool or aquarium we will just consider the isolation through air and materials.


If you glance around the area or room to be soundproofed and notice ill fitting windows, open air-ducting, gaps around doors and even electrical switches and sockets, these are all factors that can transfer sound. All sounds and noise will create the vibration and movement of the molecules in the air, and this is what we hear and identify. It matters not if it's aircraft, kids playing, machinery, traffic or music, they all generate and transfer sound in the same way.

You must therefore think of your room as a boat and carefully inspect it for leaks that need to be plugged before you can dare to sail it.


As sound travels through the air by vibrations, then it makes perfect sense that those vibrations can be absorbed by, reflected by or transferred to various materials. Sound can be transferred around a dwelling from its original source via the vibration of floors, walls and ceilings. Care must be taken with solid concrete or brick walls, such as in basements, as sound can be reflected and sometimes even amplified to other rooms in your house.

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


A bare floor surface is more resonant than one covered with a carpet or rug. The rugs or other soft coverings will help to soak up noise and can also add a bit of elegance to an otherwise bare room. Curtains, particularly heavy blackout types, will also subdue any noises from invading or escaping the area, economically and without the need for professional soundproofing.

Look for areas in your room where noise can escape or come in; doors, windows, light fittings and electrical sockets, and seal the holes or gaps. There are special acoustic sealants available on the market that absorb the sound waves, and don't transmit them to the surrounding materials. Acoustic sealants can be a touch more expensive than standard plaster or other sealant products, however their remarkable soundproofing qualities far outweigh the additional cost.

For anybody redecorating a room or renovating a property, evaluate the soundproofing benefits of adding a supplementary layer of plasterboard or soundboard, (also known as gypsum board, sheet rock or drywall), while you are carrying out the work. Plasterboard is a fairly dense material that's both effective and economical for soundproofing a room. If you are putting in a home office, home cinema or music studio then plasterboard will help to minimise sound transmission from and to that room, and can be decorated easily after completion. It's best to hire a specialist Barrhead tradesman to install plasterboard unless you have some experience in this type of work.

Soundproofer Quotes in Barrhead Scotland

The last do-it-yourself solution is to consider the doors within your home in Barrhead. Even though hollow doors are lightweight and fairly cheap, their soundproofing characteristics aren't all that brilliant. If you're able to change to solid wooden doors you'll discover that it enhances your soundproofing more cheaply than some other alternatives.


If you live in a high sound pollution location, such as near an airport or next to busy roads, you'll need to be more aggressive in how to improve the quality of the soundproofing in your home. This is an instance when the services of an experienced soundproofing company will deliver the most effective results.

They will ask the four following questions during a basic analysis of your needs:

  1. How big is the area that needs soundproofing?
  2. Where is most of the sound coming from? The walls, floor, ceiling, windows or doors.
  3. What sort of area or room do you want to soundproof? Is it a lined concrete wall, a brick wall or a plasterboarded partition wall etc.
  4. What noise or sounds are you attempting to suppress? i.e. External things such as street noise, trains, neighbours etc, or sounds inside your property from a home cinema or teenagers bedroom.

With honest answers to these questions a good soundproofing firm in Barrhead will provide you with solutions for your situation, and just as importantly, your spending budget. Remedies will vary in accordance with the different materials required for each of the problem areas in your environment.


There are two areas that need to be dealt with to successfully soundproof any room:

  1. Update and enhance the amount of sound absorption.
  2. Minimise sound resonating and amplifying.

This will require an on-site survey to determine precisely what areas require improving from the current condition.

Solutions identified by the survey will include the addition of materials with different masses and densities to help improve the soundproofing capabilities of the room. The use of acoustic foams and rubbers of different density and mass will help to absorb noise and reduce reflections and transmission sources.

Voids between joists may require insulation to eliminate the resonating space between them. Wall cavities or flooring and ceiling voids can all be likened to a drum, where the space acts as an amplifying area for any undesirable noise.

Combined layers of materials with different densities and masses do a better job of absorbing sound than a solitary layer of one material type. This is because the various frequencies are absorbed differently by different types of materials, therefore a diversity of layers, shapes and densities within your soundproofing armoury are necessary for the best results.

All soundproofing providers in Barrhead need to follow the regulations for residential buildings set down in Part E of the Building Regulations. This regulation has the aim of protecting neighbours in the immediate area from the impacts of sound pollution.

Trade organisations in the soundproofing industry that offer training, qualifications and guidance are the Association of Noise Consultants (ANC) and the Institute of Acoustics (IOA). Any Barrhead firm bearing IOA or ANC accreditation will have been appraised to make certain they offer the highest quality, standards and reliability of workmanship within the industry.

Soundproofing or Acoustic Underlay Barrhead

One of the less disruptive methods of adding a bit of soundproofing to your Barrhead property is through the installation of soundproofing or acoustic underlayment. These underlays can be used on both concrete and timber floors, and beneath carpet, laminate, vinyl planks and engineered wood floor coverings.

Basically, acoustic underlay can be a particularly beneficial solution where your issue is predominantly impact noise and not an airborne noise problem. Many householders in Barrhead tend to have a massive issue with impact noise, and this is mostly down to the popularity of hard floor finishes, which are being used more widely these days. Upstairs rooms are the main origin of such problems, with general footfall, moving furniture and kids running around being typical worries.

Although some carpet merchants might attempt to palm you off with standard carpet underlay with claims that it has noise cancelling benefits, this shouldn't be mistaken for authentic soundproofing underlay. If you are encountering serious noise issues in your home in Barrhead, contact a legitimate supplier and purchase a quality soundproofing underlay which is appropriate for your particular circumstances.

Although it's a valuable product with regard to impact noise, acoustic underlay has differing degrees of success when it comes to dealing with airborne noise pollution like booming TV's, shouting and deafening music, and some products are better than others. Hence, it is important to pinpoint the specific kinds of noise you're endeavouring to reduce before buying a particular underlay, and chat with your supplier or soundproofing specialist about your particular circumstances.
