First we need to get our heads around just how is transmitted and travels before we can find ways to reduce any excessive noise intruding into or escaping from your home.

Soundproofing Braunton Devon (EX33)

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

1. By the vibration of air molecules.

2. Through objects by the vibration of the material.

Although sound can also travel through liquids, unless you are wanting to eliminate noises from an aquarium or pool, we will only be interested in how to reduce sound levels in rooms within a property.

SOUND THROUGH THE AIR

Any ill fitting windows, heating ducts, gaps around doors and even electrical sockets and light fittings can all affect the transmission of sound outside or into a room. All noise vibrates the molecules in the air and these vibrations are what we hear and identify as sound. All sounds travel through the air in the same manner; it does not matter if it's nearby traffic, passing aircraft, heavy machinery, music or kids playing that creates the sound.

If you try to think of your room as if it were a bucket, and you are trying to identify any leaks that need sealing before you fill it with liquid.

SOUND TRAVELLING THROUGH OBJECTS AND STRUCTURES

Sound waves can additionally be absorbed by, reflected by or transferred to solid materials and structures. The walls, floors and ceilings will all have an impact on how sound moves around a room, and can even transfer that vibration to other areas of a building. Even if a room is built from a solid material that is resistant to vibrations, such as a concrete lined cellar, the sound can be transmitted and maybe even amplified to other parts of the building.

How can we stop these vibrations and sounds from having an adverse effect on other people? Soundproofing is the answer.

SIMPLE STEPS IN SOUNDPROOFING

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

Search for areas in the room where noise can come in or escape from; electrical sockets, light fittings, doors and windows, and close off any gaps. Sealing the holes and gaps with a specialist acoustic sealant found in many DIY shops and builders merchants, can make a big difference to sound transmission in your rooms. They may be a little more pricey than normal plaster or sealants, but are worth every penny for their soundproofing efficiency.

If you are luckily enough to be renovating or redecorating while dealing with your soundproofing requirements, then think about installing an additional layer of plasterboard (also referred to as sheet rock, gyproc or drywall). Plasterboard is a dense material which is both effective and economical for soundproofing purposes. It is great for areas like movie rooms, music studios or home offices which are being built within a property. If you do decide on plasterboard to help with your soundproofing exploits it is better to employ a professional fitter in Braunton, to gain the maximum benefit from its installation.

The last do-it-yourself solution is to look at the doors in your property in Braunton. Even though hollow doors are lightweight and relatively cheap, their soundproofing attributes are not the best. Solid core doors, whilst a little more pricey, can have a substantial effect on the soundproofing qualities of a room.

Soundproofer Near Braunton Devon

Be ready to answer the following four questions during a survey of your soundproofing needs:

  1. How big is the room that needs soundproofing?
  2. What is the space you wish to soundproof made from? (i.e. a lined concrete wall, a plasterboarded partition wall or a brick wall).
  3. Where is the principal source of noise emanating from? i.e. Overhead, through the doors, ceiling, floor, windows or walls, or a combination of all sorts of things.
  4. Is it internal sounds or external noise that you would like to address? i.e. To cut out neighbours playing loud music, traffic noise or trains, or is it from internally generated sounds from a music studio or home cinema for example.

An established soundproofing contractor in Braunton will take into consideration all these aspects to provide solutions to your sound issues for various budgets. The areas of your room that are responsible for the biggest noise issues may each need different solutions.

PROFESSIONAL SOUNDPROOFING OF FLOORS, WALLS and CEILINGS

To soundproof any type of room requires 2 key components:

  1. Improve and maximise the amount of sound absorption.
  2. Cut down on the ways that sound is reflected off and transmitted through solid surfaces.

This requires a site survey to see which areas need improving from the current state.

The specialists will work out ways to add materials with different densities and masses to improve the sound absorption of the room. This extra mass will help to enhance the absorption of noise by means of acoustic rubber or foam to achieve the maximum noise reduction impacts.

Soundproofing Services Braunton (EX33)

Voids between joists might need insulating to remove the resonating gap between them. If you imagine a drum or wooden cajon, you're looking at a sound amplifying void enclosed within a resonating material; fundamentally what you might find inside ceiling and floor joists, or cavities in walls.

Soundproofing is enhanced if different densities and materials are utilised, as opposed to installing a single type of material. The different materials will reduce different noise frequencies and deliver a more sympathetic auditory experience and feeling to a room.

All soundproofing installers in Braunton need to follow the requirements for residential buildings specified by Part E of the Building Regulations. This regulation has the aim of protecting neighbours and other residents in the area from the impact of noise pollution.

Watch out for companies bearing the logos of the Institute of Acoustics (IOA) or the Association of Noise Consultants (ANC) to be sure you're using a business that is knowledgable and fully qualified in the soundproofing industry. Only those Braunton firms that have been appraised and approved by these trade associations for quality, reliability and professionalism are permitted to bear the logo.

Acoustic Underlay Braunton

If you are experiencing a lot of troublesome noise in your Braunton home, an affordable way to lessen this without too much disturbance is by adding some soundproofing underlay to your floors. This can be used on concrete or wood floors and can be installed underneath carpet, vinyl planks, engineered wood, laminate, and several other types of flooring.

When your issue is not so much airborne noise but mainly impact noise, acoustic underlay is an especially effective remedy. Recent increases in the popularity of "hard" floor finishes in Braunton homes, means there are more and more issues with impact noise. This is particularly problematic when coming from rooms upstairs, and the sort of noise that we are talking about here is moving furniture, general foot traffic and children running around.

Although some unprincipled carpet suppliers might attempt to palm you off with ordinary carpet underlay with claims that it has acoustic attributes, this shouldn't be mistaken for genuine soundproofing or acoustic underlay. Be sure you purchase a good quality acoustic underlay, if if you are suffering from serious noise problems.

While it is a valuable product for impact noise, soundproofing underlay has differing degrees of success when it comes to reducing airborne noise pollution like booming TV's, constant talking and deafening music, and some products are definitely far better than others. You should discuss the precise types of noise you are wanting to lower with your supplier or soundproofing specialist, and this should allow you to choose the correct underlay product for your noise beating needs.

AMW (Acoustic Mineral Wool)

Acoustic mineral wool (AMW) is one of the most useful materials available for soundproofing houses in Braunton and has various applications for your noise reduction requirements. When placed in the cavity spaces of ceilings, walls and floors, acoustic mineral wool is specifically designed to absorb sound waves, reduce reverberation and improve acoustic performance.

Acoustic Mineral Wool Braunton

Normally available in "slabs" of 1200mm x 600mm, AMW also comes in several thicknesses (25mm, 50mm, 75mm and 100mm). AMW is often made of recycled raw materials (approximately 20%), is chemically inert, and is non-flammable. It won't encourage the growth of bacteria, mould or fungi, nor does it react with any substances or materials that it comes into close contact with (i.e. metal wall ties, brickwork, plastics or masonry).

When used as a sound absorbing filler between stud partitioning, suspended ceilings and floor joists, acoustic mineral wool is especially effective, and it's well-known in the building sector for its fire, thermal and acoustic insulation properties. To conform to the Building Regulations (Part E) when it comes to separating floors and walls, acoustic mineral wool can be used alongside other soundproofing materials.

Soundproofing Foam Braunton

It seems from doing some simple keyword research that one of the most commonplace searches on Google is for "soundproofing foam" and for local home owners, "soundproofing foam Braunton". This is somewhat baffling, because it implies a basic lack of understanding by local homeowners who seem to be of the opinion that their noise issues can be fixed by installing soundproofing foam products.

It's not my intention to rain on your parade, but most soundproofing issues cannot be helped by this kind of product, and if your objective is to block out the din caused by noisy neighbours in Braunton, you will need to look elsewhere.

Often sold in sheet or tile form, this "egg box" shaped foam that you sometimes see on sale isn't really designed for stopping the transmission of noise, but was actually created for use in music studios and comparable settings, to enhance the sound clarity in a room, and help reduce amplifying and echoing. This product isn't good for stopping noise from penetrating a wall from a neighbouring property, or even as a barrier to stop sound from travelling around your house and causing annoyance. Since acoustic foam is porous and spongy, it actually allows sound to pass right through it, and hasn't got the consistency to block it.

It might be that you're actually creating a music studio in your house in Braunton, in which case this material could be useful for you.
