Soundproofer Billericay Essex (CM11): If you are anxious about the amount of noise that's invading your Billericay home, be it in a lounge, studio, bedroom or home office, you may want to consider putting in some soundproofing. You could also be aware of noise from a family room or home cinema room escaping and disturbing others. Whatever your needs are, soundproofing will help to maintain your peace of mind and sanity.
First it would be advantageous to learn exactly how is transmitted and travels before we are able to find ways to eliminate any excessive noise intruding into or escaping from your property.
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.
SOUND TRAVELLING THROUGH THE AIR
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.
SOUND TRAVEL THROUGH STRUCTURES AND OBJECTS
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.
BASIC SOUNDPROOFING STEPS
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 the room where sound can escape or come in; light fittings, electrical sockets, door frames and windows, and stop up any gaps. There are some unique acoustic sealants available on the market which absorb the sound waves, and do not transfer them to the surrounding materials. There may be a little difference in the price when compared with a standard sealant, however the soundproofing abilities are a lot better and can make an enormous difference to a room's 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.

If your home is in a high noise pollution location, such as near an airport or next to busy roads, you will have to be more inspired in your attempts to increase the quality of the soundproofing in your home. You will get the best soundproofing results by hiring the expertise of a certified soundproofing company.
They should ask the four following questions during the initial evaluation of your needs:
- 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.
- How large is the space that you wish to be soundproofed?
- What room requires soundproofing? i.e. Is it a concrete lined cellar, a stud partitioned room, a loft conversion or a brick walled room.
- 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.
With answers to these questions a trustworthy soundproofing firm in Billericay will offer you solutions for your circumstances, and just as importantly, your spending budget. Remedies might vary in accordance with the different materials required for each of the problem areas within your environment.
PROFESSIONAL SOUNDPROOFING OF WALLS, FLOORS and CEILINGS
2 key strategies are needed to soundproof any kind of space or room:
- Increase the absorption of sound.
- Reduce the effect of sound reflection, vibration and amplification by solid surfaces.
An on-site survey will be necessary to look at the aspects to be improved.
A specialist will look at the different ways to add density and mass to the areas with problems. Soundproofing will be boosted by the application of acoustic foam and rubber which absorbs excess noise and enhances and a room's sound quality.
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.
The Building Regulations (Part E) cover the soundproofing of residential properties, and must be observed by any soundproofing company in Billericay. These regulations have the objective of protecting neighbours in the area from the impact and effect of noise pollution.
