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

Soundproofing Billericay Essex (CM11)

There basically two ways by which sound can travel around a home:

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

2. In open spaces by movement of air.

As whale and dolphin songs can show, sound also travels long distances through water, but unless you wish to soundproof a swimming pool or aquarium we will look only at the methods of soundproofing rooms and structures.


If you glance around the room or area to be soundproofed and notice open air-ducting, ill fitting windows, gaps around doors and even electrical switches and sockets, these are all aspects that can cause the transmission of sound. All noise and sounds will initiate the vibration and movement of the molecules in the air, and it is this that we pick up and hear. No matter the source of the noise; nearby traffic, passing aircraft, machinery, children playing or music playing, all sounds are produced and transferred in exactly the same manner.

If you try and imagine your room as if it were a bucket, and you're attempting to identify any leaks to seal before you fill it up with water.


We now know that sound is simply the vibrations of air being processed by the ear, but those vibrations are also reflected by or transferred to solid objects. The floors, walls and ceilings will all have an impact on how sound moves around an area, and may even transfer those vibrations to other parts of a property. Even a room made of solid concrete, such as a basement, can produce a resonance path which transmits any sound waves, and even amplify them, to other areas of a property.

So, what's the best way to stop this sound transmission having a detrimental impact on other people? Soundproofing obviously.


If you've got bare floors or floorboards, think about laying a few rugs or cover with a carpet to help reduce any vibrations and sound reflections. Such a simple and straightforward solution can help to damp down any noise and spruce up the room to boot. Hanging curtains and wall coverings can also dampen sound reflections and vibrations through walls and windows without the need to bring in a team of professional soundproofers.

Search for areas in your room where noise can come in or escape from; light fittings, doors, windows and electrical sockets, and seal up any gaps or holes. Stopping up the gaps and holes with a professional acoustic sealant found in many DIY and building material shops, will make a huge difference to how your room sounds. There may be a little difference in price when compared with a standard sealant, however the soundproofing capabilities are much better and will make a massive difference to a room's level of soundproofing.

If you are fortunate enough to be renovating or redecorating while tackling your soundproofing, then look at putting up an extra skin of plasterboard (also known as sheet rock, gyproc or drywall). Plasterboard is a fairly dense material that's both economical and efficient in soundproofing a room. If you're fitting a games room, cinema room or study then plasterboard can help in reducing sound pollution for that room, and can be decorated easily after installment. It's best to hire a certified contractor near you to put up the plasterboard unless you have some experience in this sort of work.

Lastly you need to inspect all doors in the room that you're soundproofing. Hollow doors are comparatively cheap although their soundproofing capabilities are far from perfect. Changing hollow core doors for solid core will boost the soundproofing qualities of a room with only a small extra cost.

They should ask the four following questions during the initial evaluation of your needs:

  1. Precisely where is the main source of the sound coming from? i.e. Above, through the floors, doors, windows, ceiling or walls, or a mixture.
  2. How large is the space that you wish to be soundproofed?
  3. What room requires soundproofing? i.e. Is it a concrete lined cellar, a stud partitioned room, a loft conversion or a brick walled room.
  4. Is it internal sounds or external noise that you need to target? i.e. To stop trains, noisy neighbours or traffic noise, or is it from internally generated sounds from a teenagers bedroom or home cinema for example.

Any voids in the area might need some sort of deadening material to be installed between them to lower sound resonation. If you picture 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 open, you are effectively creating a noise amplifying area.

It is best to use mixed layers of different density materials to absorb unwanted noises than a single layer fabricated from one type of material. The various materials will reduce different frequencies of sound and offer a more balanced auditory experience and feeling to a room.
