Soundproofer Bourne Lincolnshire (PE10): If the level of noise is causing problems in your Bourne home then it might be time to think about putting in some soundproofing to make your lounge, bedroom, studio or home office a haven of peace and quiet from the outside world. Alternatively you may wish to soundproof an individual room to keep load noises in, for instance in a family room or home cinema, to avoid disturbing others. Whatever your requirements are, soundproofing will give you peace of mind and sanity.
It is crucial for us to understand how sound is transmitted around an area before it is possible to discover solutions to prevent it from happening.
Basically, sound travels in two ways around a room:
1. Through objects by the vibration of the material.
2. The vibration or air molecules through the air.
As whale and dolphin songs can show, sound also travels through water, but unless your intention is to soundproof an aquarium or swimming pool we will look only at the strategies for soundproofing structures and rooms.
SOUND TRAVEL THROUGH THE AIR
If you look around the room or area to be soundproofed and discover gaps around doors, ill fitted windows, open ducting and even light fittings and electrical sockets, these are all aspects that can cause the transmission of sound. All sounds and noise will initiate the vibration and movement of the molecules in the air, and it is this that we pick up and hear. It doesn't matter if it's aircraft, kids playing, music playing, traffic or machinery, they all generate and transfer sound in the same manner.
It is helpful to imagine your room as a boat and carefully inspect it for leaks that require sealing.
SOUND TRAVEL THROUGH STRUCTURES AND OBJECTS
We know that sounds are merely the vibrations of air being picked up by the ear, but those vibrations are also absorbed by solid materials. Sound can be transmitted around a building from its original source through the vibration of ceilings, floors and walls. Even a solid concrete room, such as a cellar, can generate a path of resonance which transmits any sound waves, and sometimes amplify them, to other parts of a dwelling.
How do we stop these vibrations having an impact on others? Soundproofing of course.
BASIC SOUNDPROOFING STEPS
If you have bare floors or floorboards, consider laying a few rugs or cover with a carpet to help in reducing any sound reflections and vibrations. Not only will such a simple solution help to reduce your noise problem, but it can also jazz up the room. Wall coverings or window drapes can also be used to boost soundproofing and are simple to install.
Locating and stopping up any gaps in your rooms, think electrical sockets, door frames, windows and light fittings, is also a straightforward task for a skilled DIY'er. Stopping up the holes and gaps with a specialist acoustic sealant found in some DIY and building material shops, can make a big difference to sound transmission in your room. Acoustic sealants can be a bit more expensive than normal sealant products, but their remarkable soundproofing qualities far outweigh the small extra cost.
If your room is a blank canvas and you are soundproofing as you renovate or decorate, consider installing another layer of soundboard or plasterboard, (also known as drywall, gypsum board or sheet rock). This is an efficient and economical soundproofing material owing to its dense nature. It's ideal for areas such as movie rooms, studios or studies which are being built within a property. It's better to hire a specialist Bourne tradesman to install plasterboard unless you have experience in its application.
One final simple soundproofing treatment is to look at the materials your doors are made of. Hollow doors are a comparatively cheap option but their soundproofing capabilities are a far cry from the best. If you are able to change to solid wooden doors you will discover that it boosts your soundproofing more cheaply than some other solutions.
PROFESSIONAL SOUNDPROOFING SOLUTIONS BOURNE
Some areas, for example those on aircraft flight-paths or next to busy traffic routes, have naturally more sound pollution issues and will need other ways to deal with the predicament. The best way to resolve these problems is to contact a reliable soundproofing and acoustic contractor from the local area.
They should ask the four following questions during the initial assessment of your requirements:
- What is the area you want to soundproof made from? (i.e. a fully lined concrete wall, a brick wall or a stud partition wall).
- How big is the area that needs soundproofing?
- Is it internal noise or external sounds that you want to deal with? i.e. To suppress neighbours, passing trains or traffic noise, or is it from internally created sounds from a music room or family room for instance.
- From what direction do the sounds appear to be coming from? i.e. Through the windows, floor, walls, ceiling or doors or a combination of all of these.
Your answers to such questions will allow you to get estimates for the various available solutions that match your needs. The areas of your room that are responsible for the biggest noise issues may each need different solutions.
PROFESSIONAL SOUNDPROOFING OF WALLS, FLOORS and CEILINGS
There are 2 areas that need to be addressed to soundproof any space or room:
- The absorption of sound will have to be maximised.
- Lower the effect of sound vibration, amplification and reflection by solid surfaces.
To precisely analyse the soundproofing areas that need to be improved, a site survey needs to be performed by a soundproofing company in Bourne.
The team will figure out ways of adding materials that have different densities and masses to boost the sound absorption of the area. Soundproofing can be boosted by the application of acoustic rubber and foam which absorbs sound waves and improves and the sound quality of a space.
Insulation between any existing voids will be improved or upgraded to lower the noise resonation and amplification of these sound boxes. If you imagine these spaces as similar to a drum or wooden cajon then you'll see that by leaving floor or ceiling joist spaces and wall cavities open, you're effectively creating a sound amplifying area.
It's better to use combined layers of different density materials to absorb undesired noises than a solitary layer made of one material. This is due to the fact that different materials react in different ways with different frequencies and will deliver a better resolution to your soundproofing exploits.
Part E of the Building Regulations deal with the soundproofing of domestic properties, and will have to be applied by any soundproofing installer in Bourne. Such requirements should be observed so as to protect yourself and neighbours from the harmful effects of noise pollution.
Trade organisations in the soundproofing industry that offer qualifications, advice and training are the Institute of Acoustics and the Association of Noise Consultants. A reputable soundproofing firm in Bourne will have been through a vetting procedure for the professionalism and quality of their work to have been certified as a member of these trade bodies.

Soundproofing Foam Bourne
It appears from carrying out some basic keyphrase research that one of the most commonplace searches on Google is for "soundproofing foam" and for local homeowners, "soundproofing foam Bourne". That is actually quite interesting, because it indicates that Bourne home and business owners are assuming that soundproofing foam products are suitable for reducing their noise problems.
The last thing I want to do is rain on anyone's parade, but if you're convinced that the din from your noisy next door neighbours in Bourne can be blocked out with soundproofing foam, you are way off the mark.
The foam in the form of an "egg box" which you regularly see being sold in sheet or tile form is not actually meant for blocking out noise, but was really developed for use in music studios and similar spaces, to reduce echoing and resonation and enhance the sound clarity in a room. This product is not good for preventing noise from penetrating a wall from a neighbouring property, or even to stop sound from travelling around your property and causing annoyance. Because it is porous, soundproofing foam absorbs sound and allows sound to pass through, rather than stopping it.
However, if you're working on creating a music room, this foam may be helpful for you, and can be acquired in various sheet sizes and different thicknesses (typically 25 millimetre and 50 millimetre).

Grants for Soundproofing
Noise pollution and soundproofing improvement grants have been available in the past from local councils and Government. If your house is beside a busy motorway or road you could get in touch with the Highways Agency who have previously offered grants for soundproofing property in specified areas. It is recommended to seek advice from the Government portal for current grants and compensation schemes to find out if you are eligible for any help with your soundproofing costs in Bourne.
