It's crucial for us to learn how sound travels around a structure before it is possible to find techniques to prevent it from happening.

Soundproofing Bishops Stortford Hertfordshire (CM23)

Basically, sound travels in two ways around a home:

1. By vibration of solid materials and structures.

2. By the vibration of air molecules.

Despite the fact that sound can also travel through water, unless you are wanting to isolate noise from an aquarium or swimming pool, we will only be interested in how to reduce sound levels in the rooms of a property.


If you check out the room or area to be soundproofed and notice gaps around doors, ill fitted windows, heating ducts and even electrical switches and sockets, these are all causes of sound transmission. All noise vibrates the air molecules and these vibrations are what we identify and hear as sound. It doesn't matter if it's heavy machinery, children playing, busy traffic, aeroplanes or music, they all produce and transmit sound in the same way.

You should therefore think of a room as a boat and inspect it carefully for leaks before sailing off into the sunset.


We know that sound is simply the vibration of air being picked up by the ear, but that vibration is also absorbed by solid objects. Sound will cause vibrations in the ceilings, floors and walls of your rooms, and may lead to a resonating effect that is transmitted outside the room itself. Care has to be taken with solid brick or concrete walls, such as in cellars or basements, since sound can be transmitted and sometimes even amplified to other parts of your house.

So, what's the easiest way to stop this sound transference having an impact on others? Soundproofing obviously.


If you have bare floorboards or floor surfaces, think about covering them with carpet or laying a few rugs to help reduce any vibrations and sound reflections. The rugs or other soft coverings will help to soak up sounds but can also add a bit of elegance to a previously bare room. Wall coverings or window drapes can also be used to enhance soundproofing and are simple to install and maintain.

Search for areas in the rooms where noise can come in or escape from; light fittings, windows, sockets and doors, and close off any holes or gaps. There are some special acoustic sealants available on the market that suppress the sound waves, and do not transmit them to the surrounding materials. Acoustic sealants can be a touch more expensive than standard sealant products, however the special design has far greater soundproofing performance and is certainly worth the extra cost.

For those of you who are renovating a property or redecorating a room, look at the soundproofing gains of adding an extra layer of plasterboard or soundboard, (also known as sheet rock, drywall or gyproc), while you're carrying out this work. This is an efficient and economical soundproofing material because of its dense nature. If you're fitting a study, home cinema or studio then plasterboard can help to minimise sound pollution for that room, and can be decorated easily after installation. If you do decide on plasterboard to aid your soundproofing it is advisable to employ a professional fitter in Bishops Stortford, to achieve the maximum benefit from its installment.

One final simple soundproofing remedy is to examine the materials your doors are made of. Hollow doors are a comparatively cheap option although their soundproofing qualities are far from ideal. If you are able to change to solid doors you'll find it boosts your room's soundproofing at minimal extra cost.

They should ask the following four questions during a basic assessment of your needs:

  1. Is it external noise or internal sounds that you would like to deal with? i.e. To cut out traffic, overflying aircraft or neighbours, or is it from internally created sounds from a home cinema or music room for example.
  2. Which is the main point where the sound creates the biggest problems? i.e. Is it emanating down from above, through windows/doors, up through the floors or from the walls, or is it a mix of all things.
  3. What sort of room or property do you want to soundproof? Is it a lined concrete wall, a brick wall or a plasterboarded partition wall etc.
  4. How large is the room you wish to have soundproofed?

An experienced soundproofing installer in Bishops Stortford will consider all these factors to provide remedies for your sound issues for various budgets. Remedies will vary according to the different materials needed for each of the main trouble spots in your property.


2 key components are required to soundproof any sort of space or room:

  1. Reduce the ways that sound is transmitted through and reflected by hard surfaces.
  2. Improve sound absorption.

A site survey is going to be needed to look at the areas to be improved.

Solutions from the survey will include the addition of materials with different densities to help enhance the soundproofing capabilities of the room. The addition of acoustic foams and rubbers of varying density and mass will help in absorbing noise and reduce reflections and transmission sources.

Voids between joists may need insulating to remove resonation spaces between them. If you visualise these spaces like a drum or wooden cajon then you'll see that by leaving wall cavities and floor or ceiling joist spaces empty, you're creating a noise amplification area.

Soundproofing qualities are improved if different densities and materials are employed, as opposed to installing a single kind of material. This is because different frequencies are affected by different types of materials, therefore a diversity of layers, shapes and densities within your soundproofing panels are needed for the best results.

Any soundproofing contractor in Bishops Stortford will have to follow the the Building Regulations (Part E), if your property is residential in nature. These regulations have the purpose of protecting neighbours and other residents in the area from the impact of sound pollution.
