Firstly we should get our heads around just how sound travels and is transmitted before we are able to identify ways to reduce any loud noise getting into or out of your property.

Soundproofing Barrow upon Soar Leicestershire (LE12)

Sound basically moves in two ways throughout your room:

1. Through the vibration of objects or materials.

2. In open spaces by movement of air.

Sound can also be transmitted through water, however unless you're looking at soundproofing a pool or aquarium we will simply deal with its isolation via materials and air.


Any single glazed windows, heating ducts, gaps around doors and even electrical sockets and light fittings can all be methods of transmission of sound into or outside a room. What we identify and hear as sound is really the vibration of air molecules reaching our ear drum. No matter the source of the noise; road traffic, aeroplanes, music, heavy machinery or children playing, all sound is generated and transferred in precisely the same way.

It is helpful to imagine your room as a boat and inspect it carefully for leaks that require sealing.


Sound waves can also be absorbed by, reflected by or transferred to solid materials and structures. Sound can be transported around a property from its original source via the vibration of ceilings, floors and walls. Even in a room that's encased in a solid material that's resistant against sound vibrations, such as a concrete basement, the sound can be transmitted and even amplified to other rooms in the property.

But, how can these effects be prevented from causing a problem? The solution is naturally, soundproofing!


Give some thought to covering a bare floor surface, which reflects and resonates sound, with a carpet or rug. The rugs or other soft coverings will help to soak up noises but can also add a touch of style to a previously bare room. Curtains, in particular substantial blackout ones, will also repress any sounds from invading or escaping a room, economically and without requiring professional installation.

Another cost-effective and DIY solution is to plug any gaps around doors, light fittings, electrical sockets and windows. Plugging the gaps and holes with an acoustic sealant found in some DIY and building material shops, can make an enormous difference to how your room sounds. They may be a tad more pricey than regular sealants or plaster, but they're worth the cost for their soundproofing efficiency.

If your room is an empty canvas and you're soundproofing while you renovate or decorate, look at installing another skin of plasterboard or soundboard, (also known as gyproc, drywall or sheet rock). Plasterboard is a dense material which is both economical and efficient for soundproofing a room. It is perfect for areas such as studios, studies or home cinemas being built within your house in Barrow upon Soar. If you aren't experienced in putting up framing and plasterboard, it is advisable to employ a specialist team to guarantee you the optimum soundproofing improvements from its use.

Lastly you need to check out all doors in the room you're planning to soundproof. Hollow doors are fairly cheap although their soundproofing capabilities are a far cry from ideal. Changing hollow doors for solid ones will improve the soundproofing of a room with only a small extra cost.


If the level of sound pollution is extreme in your area, due to aircraft flying over, or heavy traffic on a nearby road for example, then more serious ways to combat the excess noise will have to be investigated. This is an instance when appointing the services of a specialist soundproofing contractor will deliver the greatest results.

Expect to answer the following four questions during an evaluation of your specific soundproofing needs:

  1. How big is the area requiring soundproofing?
  2. What area requires soundproofing? i.e. Is it an attic conversion, a stud partitioned room, a concrete lined cellar or a brick walled room.
  3. What sounds or noise are you wanting to reduce? i.e. External issues such as street noise, aircraft, next door neighbours etc, or internal sounds from a home cinema or teenagers bedroom.
  4. Which is the main area where the noise causes the biggest problems? i.e. Is it coming through windows, from the walls, down from overhead or up through the flooring, or is it a mixture of all things.

With answers to these queries a decent soundproofing company in Barrow upon Soar will work out solutions to suit your situation, and just as importantly, your budget. The parts of your room that are responsible for the biggest issues will each require different solutions.


2 key strategies are needed to soundproof any size of room:

  1. Improve and maximise the level of sound absorption.
  2. Lessen the effect of sound vibration, amplification and reflection by solid surfaces.

Doing this requires an on-site survey to see exactly what areas require developing from the present state.

The installer will figure out ways to add materials with different masses and densities to improve the sound absorption properties of the room. This additional mass will help to enhance absorption of the sound energy through the use of acoustic foam or rubber to gain the maximum sound reduction impacts.

The insulation between any voids will be improved or upgraded to reduce the noise resonation and amplification of these "sound boxes". Floor and ceiling voids and cavities in walls can all be likened to a drum, where the space inside acts like an amplification source for unwanted sounds.

It is far better to use mixed layers of different densities to absorb unwelcome sounds than a single layer fabricated from one kind of material. This is due to the fact that the various different materials react in different ways with various frequencies and will deliver a better acoustic solution to your soundproofing project.

All soundproofing installers in Barrow upon Soar must follow the guidelines for residential buildings specified by the Building Regulations (Part E). This regulation has the objective of protecting neighbours in the immediate area from the impact of sound pollution.

Both concrete and wooden floors are suitable surfaces for these soundproofing underlays, and they can be laid under laminate, engineered wood, carpet and vinyl planks.

Where there is an issue with impact rather than airborne noise, soundproofing underlay is especially effective. In recent times, a rise in the popularity of "harder" floor finishes has contributed to more complaints about impact noise in lots of Barrow upon Soar homes. Activities like general footfall, moving furniture and children stomping around, are the sort of noise that we are referring to here.

If you're experiencing significant noise issues in your home in Barrow upon Soar, visit a professional dealer and purchase a decent soundproofing underlay which is appropriate for your particular needs.
