It is important for us to learn how sound is transmitted around an area before it's possible to identify techniques to prevent it from happening.

Soundproofing Barrow-in-Furness Cumbria (LA14)

Basically, sound moves in two ways around a room:

1. By the vibration of air molecules.

2. Around and within a solid object by vibration and reflection.

Although sound can also travel through liquids, unless you are looking to isolate noises from a pool or aquarium, we'll only be concerned with how to reduce sound transmission in the rooms of a property.


Sound can be transferred out of and into a room through gaps around doors, heating ducts, single glazed windows and even light fittings and electrical sockets. All noise vibrates the air molecules and this vibration is what we identify and hear as sound. No matter what the source of the sound; aircraft, kids playing, music, heavy machinery or traffic, all sound is generated and transferred in precisely the same fashion.

Any openings within a room can be considered to be leaks and will need to be blocked.


As sound moves through the air by vibration, then it makes perfect sense that this vibration can be reflected by, absorbed by or transferred to different solid materials. Sound can be transmitted around a property from its original source via the vibration of walls, floors and ceilings. Even a solid concrete room, such as a basement, can generate a path of resonance which channels any sound waves, and sometimes amplify them, to other parts of a dwelling.

How should we prevent these sounds and vibrations from having an adverse effect on other folks? Soundproofing is the solution.


A bare floor is more resonant than one covered by a rug or carpet. Not only will such a simple solution help to reduce your problem with noise, but it can also spruce up the room. Window drapes and wall coverings can also be used to boost soundproofing and are simple to fit and maintain.

Track down areas in the rooms where noise can escape or come in; light fittings, windows, door frames and sockets, and stop up any holes or gaps. It is possible to purchase professional acoustic sealants in many builders merchants that moderate the transfer of sound by absorbing the sound waves. They might be a bit more expensive than normal sealants or plaster, but are more than worth it for their soundproofing efficiency.

For anybody redecorating a room or renovating a property, consider the soundproofing gains of adding a supplementary skin of plasterboard or soundboard, (also called gypsum board, drywall or sheet rock), while you are carrying out this work. Plasterboard is a very dense material that is both economical and efficient for soundproofing purposes. If you're putting in a games room, movie room or study then plasterboard can help to minimise sound pollution for that room, and can be readily decorated after installation. If you do choose plasterboard to help with your soundproofing exploits it is better to use a specialist fitter in Barrow-in-Furness, to achieve the maximum possible benefit from its installation.

The initial questions you should be asked are:

  1. How big is the room that needs soundproofing?
  2. What is the room you want to soundproof constructed from? (i.e. a plasterboarded partition wall, a fully lined concrete wall or a brick wall).
  3. Is it internal noise or external sounds that you wish to deal with? i.e. To reduce trains, traffic or next door neighbours, or is it from internally created sounds from a home cinema or teenagers bedroom for instance.
  4. Where is the primary source of the noise coming from? i.e. Overhead, through the floor, windows, ceiling, doors or walls, or a mixture.

With honest answers to these questions a trustworthy soundproofing firm in Barrow-in-Furness will figure out solutions to suit your situation, and just as important, your spending budget. Remedies will vary in accordance with the different materials required for each of the main trouble spots within your property.


There are two key areas that need to be dealt with to soundproof any space or room:

  1. Reduce the effects on the way sound is transmitted through and reflected by solid surfaces.
  2. Sound absorption will need to be improved.

This will require a site survey to determine precisely what areas need enhancing from the current condition.

The experts will figure out ways to add materials with different densities and masses to enhance the sound quality of the room. This extra mass will help to increase absorption of the sound energy by means of acoustic foam or rubber to gain the maximum impact of noise reduction.

The insulation between any existing voids will be upgraded or improved to lower the sound resonation and amplification of these "sound boxes". If you imagine these spaces as similar to a drum or wooden cajon then you will see that by leaving wall cavities and floor or ceiling joist spaces empty, you are creating a sound amplification area.

It is far better to use combined layers of different density materials to deaden undesired noises than a single layer made of one material. The different materials will isolate different sound frequencies and deliver a more balanced auditory experience and feeling to a room.
