It is important for us to learn how sound travels around a building before it is possible to find methods to stop it from occurring.

Soundproofing Bonnyrigg Scotland (EH19)

Sound basically travels in two ways around a home:

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

2. By the vibration of air molecules.

Sound can also be transmitted through water, however unless you're planning to soundproof an aquarium or pool we'll simply concentrate on its isolation via materials and air.


Sound can be transferred into and out of a room through gaps around doors, single glazed windows, open air-ducting and even electrical sockets and light fittings. What we identify and hear as sound is really air molucules being vibrated and being picked up by our ear drums. It matters not if it's busy traffic, machinery, children playing, aeroplanes or music playing, they all create and transfer sound in the same manner.

Any holes in a room can be looked at as leaks and will need to be plugged.


We now know that sounds are simply the vibrations of air reaching the ear, however those vibrations are also transferred to solid materials. Sound will cause vibrations in the walls, floors and ceilings of your rooms, and can lead to a resonation effect which is transmitted outside of the room itself. Care has to be taken with solid brick or concrete walls, such as in cellars, because sound can be reflected and sometimes even amplified to other parts of your home.

But, how can these sound transmitting effects be stopped from creating an issue? The answer is not surprisingly, soundproofing!


Consider covering a bare floor, which reflects and resonates sound, with a carpet or rug. These soft coverings and rugs will help to absorb noise but can also add a bit of elegance to a previously bare room. Curtains, especially substantial blackout types, can also stifle any noises from invading or escaping the area, economically and without requiring professional installation.

Locating and sealing any gaps in your rooms, think light fittings, door frames, windows and electrical sockets, is also an easy job for a capable DIY'er. Plugging the gaps and holes with a professional acoustic sealant that can be purchased in some DIY centres and builders merchants, can make a huge difference to sound transmission in a room. There could be a considerable difference in the price when compared to a standard sealant, however the soundproofing abilities are a lot better and will make a massive difference to a room's level of soundproofing.

If you are going to be renovating or redecorating while tackling your soundproofing, then look at installing an additional skin of plasterboard (also referred to as sheet rock, drywall or gypsum board). This is a dense type of boarding that is a perfect and economic soundproofing material. It is perfect for spaces such as music studios, studies or movie rooms which are being built within a property. If you do decide on plasterboard to aid your soundproofing exploits it is best to employ a specialist fitter in Bonnyrigg, to achieve the maximum possible effect from its installment.

Soundproofer Quotes in Bonnyrigg Scotland

One last simple soundproofing solution is to look at the materials from which your doors are made. Although hollow doors are light and fairly affordable, their soundproofing qualities are not the best. Solid doors, while a little bit more expensive, can have a considerable effect on the soundproofing capabilities of a room.


If you happen to live in a high noise pollution area, such as near an airport or next to busy roads, you'll have to be more inventive in your attempts to boost the quality of the soundproofing in your home. You will receive the best possible soundproofing outcome by using the services of a certified soundproofing specialist.

The initial questions you can expect to be asked are:

  1. What are the particular noises that you need to be soundproofed? i.e. Is it sounds from within your house such as a teenagers bedroom or home cinema, or outside noises such as noisy neighbours, overflying aircraft, road noise, etc.
  2. What area needs to be soundproofed? i.e. Is it a loft conversion, a brick walled room, a concrete lined cellar or a stud partitioned room.
  3. What exactly is the size of the space or room that must be soundproofed?
  4. Which is the main point where the sound causes the most problems? i.e. Is it emanating down from overhead, up through the floors, through doors or from the walls, or is it a combination of all these factors.

Your answers to such queries will allow you to receive estimates for the different solutions available to suit your needs. The parts of your room that are causing the biggest noise issues will each need different remedies.


There are two key areas that need to be addressed to successfully soundproof any space:

  1. Reduce the effect of sound reflection, vibration and amplification by hard surfaces.
  2. The absorption of sound needs to be enhanced.

An on-site survey is going to be needed to look at the elements to be improved.

The experts will look at ways of adding materials with different densities and masses to enhance the sound absorption qualities of the area. Soundproofing can be boosted by the addition of acoustic rubber, foam and other materials which absorbs excess noise and enhances and the sound quality of a room.

Any uninsulated voids in the area may need some kind of deadening material to be installed between them to reduce noise resonation. Wall cavities or flooring and ceiling voids can all be likened to a drum, where the space acts like an amplification source for unwelcome noise.

Soundproofing is enhanced if different densities and materials are employed, rather than installing only one sort of material. This is due to the fact that different materials react better with various frequencies and will deliver a much better overall resolution to your soundproofing project.

Part E of the Building Regulations cover the soundproofing of domestic properties, and will need to be adhered to by any installation company in Bonnyrigg. These requirements have to be adopted so as to protect yourself and others from the harmful effects of noise pollution.

Trade bodies in the soundproofing sector that offer qualifications, training and advice are the Association of Noise Consultants (ANC) and the Institute of Acoustics (IOA).

Acoustic Underlay Bonnyrigg

If you are experiencing a lot of noise in your home in Bonnyrigg, a good way to reduce this without too much disturbance is by installing some soundproofing underlay on your floors. Both wooden and concrete floors are suitable for these underlays, and they can be laid beneath vinyl planks, engineered wood, carpet and laminate.

When your problem is not so much airborne noise but mainly impact noise, soundproofing underlay is an especially beneficial treatment. A recent increase in the popularity of "harder" floor finishes in Bonnyrigg, means there are a growing number of issues with impact noise. The type of noise issues we are referring to here is kids running around, general foot traffic and shifting furniture, particularly from rooms upstairs.

Do not be hoodwinked by unprincipled carpet stockists, who might attempt to palm you off with ordinary carpet underlay as a cure for your noise related issues - this kind of product should never be mistaken for genuine acoustic underlay. Be sure to invest in a good quality acoustic underlay, if if you are suffering from significant noise problems.

While impact noise can be significantly reduced with the help of soundproofing underlays, they have varying levels of success with regards to constant talking, booming TV's and deafening music, and other airborne noises. You should discuss the precise sorts of noise you're trying to minimise with the soundproofing specialist or supplier, and this should allow you to determine the correct product for your noise reduction goals.

AMW (Acoustic Mineral Wool)

For you noise reduction requirements in Bonnyrigg, AMW (or acoustic mineral wool) is one of the most useful products on the market for soundproofing homes or other structures, and has various applications. Improving acoustic performance, absorbing airborne sound and dampening vibrations, acoustic mineral wool is specifically designed to be installed in the cavity spaces of walls, floors and ceilings.

Acoustic Mineral Wool Bonnyrigg

Usually available in "slabs" of 1200mm x 600mm, acoustic mineral wool also comes in several thicknesses (25mm, 50mm, 75mm and 100mm). Chemically inert and non-combustible, acoustic mineral wool is often made of recycled materials (about 20%). It's rare for bacteria, mould or fungi to form in AMW, and it should never react with plastics, metal wall ties, brickwork, masonry, or other substances or materials that it makes contact with.

AMW is notably effective as a sound absorbing infill when used between suspended ceilings, floor joists and stud partitioning, and is widely used in the building industry for thermal, fire and acoustic insulation. When it comes to separating walls and floors, and when used in partnership with other soundproofing products, AMW can help in adhering to The Building Regulations (Part E).

Soundproofing Foam Bonnyrigg

I was interested to learn recently that a common search term entered on Google was "soundproofing foam", and for local searches "acoustical foam Bonnyrigg" and "soundproofing foam Bonnyrigg". That is really quite worrying, because it suggests that Bonnyrigg householders are assuming that acoustic foam products are suitable for fixing their noise pollution issues.

The last thing I want to do is rain on your parade, but if you are thinking that the din from your noisy next door neighbours in Bonnyrigg can be reduced with acoustic foam, you are somewhat wide of the target.

The familiar "egg box" shaped foam, that often seems to be the trademark of soundproofing, is not actually designed for stopping the transmission of noise, but has the purpose of reducing echoing and amplifying in music studios and comparable spaces, where it can also enhance the sound clarity in a room. Soundproofing foam like this isn't good for preventing sound from travelling around your house, or preventing noise from passing through a party wall. Seeing as acoustic foam is porous and spongy, it actually allows sound to pass right through it, and does not have the density to block it.

Nonetheless, if you happen to be engaged on creating a music room, this material could be useful for you, and is available in different sheet sizes and various thicknesses (normally 25 millimetre and 50 millimetre).
