It is crucial to realise how sound travels and is transmitted around an area before it is possible to find strategies to prevent it from happening.

Soundproofing Brechin Scotland (DD9)

Basically, sound moves in two ways throughout your room:

1. By the vibration of air molecules.

2. Through the vibration of objects or materials.

As whale and dolphin song demonstrates, sound also travels through water, however unless you wish to soundproof a pool or aquarium we will just look at the strategies for soundproofing rooms and structures.


Any gaps around doors, ill fitting windows, open air-ducting and even light fittings and electrical sockets can all be responsible for the transmission of sound outside or into a room. What we hear as sound is really the vibration of air molecules reaching our ear drum. All sounds are transferred through the air in the same fashion; it matters not if it's busy traffic, aircraft, heavy machinery, children playing or music that generates the sound.

It is helpful to visualise a room as a boat and inspect it carefully for leaks that need to be plugged before you can dare to sail it.


We all know that sounds are just the vibrations of air reaching the ear, however those vibrations are also absorbed by solid objects. The walls, floors and ceilings will all affect how sound travels around an area, and may even transport that vibration to other rooms in a dwelling. Care should be taken with brick or solid concrete walls, such as in basements, as sound can be transmitted and sometimes even amplified to other parts of your house.

However, how can these sound transmitting effects be prevented from causing a problem? The solution is obviously, soundproofing!


A bare floor resonates more than one covered by a carpet or rug. Not only can such a simple and straightforward solution reduce your noise problem, it can also jazz up the room. Hanging wall coverings and curtains can also dampen sound reflections and vibrations through windows and walls without the need for a professional team of soundproofing installers.

Search for areas in your rooms where noise can escape or come in; light fittings, windows, sockets and doors, and seal any holes or gaps. You can find professional acoustic sealants in some building supply stores which suppress the transfer of sound by suppressing it. They are a bit more pricey than standard plaster or sealants, but they're more than worth it for their soundproofing qualities.

For anyone renovating a property or redecorating a room, look at the soundproofing properties of adding an extra skin of plasterboard or soundboard, (also known as sheet rock, drywall or gyproc), while you are tackling the work. This is an efficient and economical soundproofing material due to its dense nature. It is excellent for areas like music studios, movie rooms or studies being built within your home in Brechin. If you're not familiar with fitting plasterboard and framing, it is best to use a specialist Brechin contractor to guarantee you the optimum soundproofing improvements from its installation.

One final easy soundproofing option is to examine the materials your doors are made of. Hollow doors are comparatively cheap although their soundproofing capabilities are far from the best. Solid doors, while a tad more expensive, can have a substantial effect on the soundproofing capabilities of a room.


Some areas, such as those alongside busy roads or on aircraft flight paths, have naturally more sound pollution problems and will need other ways to tackle the dilemma. This is an instance when hiring the services of an established soundproofing service will deliver the most effective results.

Soundproofer Near Brechin Scotland

The first questions you can expect to be asked are:

  1. How large is the area that needs soundproofing?
  2. What noise or sounds are you trying to suppress? i.e. External factors like passing trains, road noise, neighbours playing loud music etc, or internal sounds from a music room or family room.
  3. What sort of property or room would you like to soundproof? Does it have a lined concrete wall, a plasterboarded partition wall or a brick wall etc.
  4. From which direction do the sounds appear to be coming? i.e. Through the walls, windows, ceiling, floors or doors or a mixture of all.

Your answers to such queries will allow you to get itemised quotes for the different solutions available that match your circumstances. They'll offer you different strategies to soundproof each of the problem areas within your room.


To soundproof any type of room requires 2 key approaches:

  1. Reduce the effects on the way sound is reflected off and transmitted through hard surfaces.
  2. Improve and update the level of sound absorption.

A site survey is going to be required to pinpoint the aspects to be improved.

The specialists will look at ways of adding materials with different densities and masses to increase the sound absorption of the room. Soundproofing will be improved by the addition of acoustic foam and rubber which will absorb excess noise and enhance and a room's sound quality.

Insulation between any existing voids will be improved to lessen the noise resonation and amplification of these "sound boxes". Floor and ceiling voids and wall cavities can all be likened to a drum, where the space acts like an amplification source for any unwelcome noise.

Combined layers of materials with different densities and masses work better at absorbing noise than a single soundproofing material layer of one kind. This is because different frequencies are affected by different materials, therefore a range of shapes, densities and layers within your soundproofing armoury are required.

Part E of the Building Regulations cover the soundproofing of domestic properties, and must be followed by any installation company in Brechin. Such requirements must be adopted so as to protect yourself and neighbours from the harmful effects of noise pollution.

Trade bodies in the soundproofing sector who provide qualifications, guidance and training are the Institute of Acoustics (IOA) and the Association of Noise Consultants (ANC). Only those Brechin companies that have been appraised and authorised by these associations for quality, professionalism and reliability are allowed to bear the logo.

Acoustic Mineral Wool (AMW)

Having a number of different applications for your sound absorption needs, AMW (otherwise known as acoustic mineral wool) is one of the most useful materials for soundproofing homes in Brechin. Designed specifically for installation in the cavity spaces of floors, walls and ceilings, acoustic mineral wool is effective in improving acoustic performance, absorbing sound waves and reducing reverberation.

Acoustic Mineral Wool Brechin

AMW usually comes in 600mm x 1200mm slabs and is available in 25mm, 50mm, 75mm and 100mm thicknesses. Often partly made from recycled materials (approximately 20%), acoustic mineral wool is non-combustible and has an inert chemical composition. It won't react with any materials or substances that it comes into close contact with (i.e. brickwork, plastics, masonry, metal wall tiesetc), and doesn't encourage the development of bacteria, mould or fungi.

When used as a sound absorbing filler between stud partitioning, floor joists and suspended ceilings, acoustic mineral wool is particularly effective, and it is widely recognised in the construction sector for its acoustic, thermal and fire insulation qualities. With regards to separating floors and walls, and when used in conjunction with other acoustic materials, acoustic mineral wool can help in compliance with Part E of the Building Regulations.

Soundproofing Foam Brechin

I was interested to learn recently that one of the most popular soundproofing key phrases entered on Google and Bing was "soundproofing foam", and local searches included things like "soundproofing foam Brechin" and "acoustic foam Brechin". Now, this would imply that lots of people in Brechin are hunting for a solution to soundproof their properties, and are hoping that soundproofing foam will do this.

It is not my intention to be the bearer of bad news, but most noise related issues cannot be solved with this product, and if you are aiming to reduce the racket caused by noisy next door neighbours in Brechin, you'll need to look someplace else.

Stopping the transmission of noise isn't the purpose of this familiar "egg box" shaped foam, which was in fact created for use in music studios and similar environments, where it can enhance the sound clarity in a room, and reduce reverberation, echoing and amplifying. This sort of acoustic foam is not efficient at preventing noise from passing through a neighbours wall, or stopping sound from moving around the rooms of your property. Seeing as it is porous, acoustic foam absorbs sound and lets sound pass through, as opposed to blocking it.

Then again, if you are engaged on creating a music studio, this foam may be helpful for you, and can be acquired in different sheet sizes and various thicknesses (typically 25mm and 50mm).

Government Grants for Soundproofing

Soundproofing or Acoustic Underlay Brechin

A great way of adding a degree of soundproofing to your property in Brechin, without any significant disturbance, is to add acoustic or soundproofing underlay. These underlays can be successfully used on both wood and concrete floors, and underneath vinyl planks, engineered wood, laminate and carpet floor coverings.

When your issue is primarily impact noise and not airborne noise, soundproofing underlay is a particularly effective solution. The current use of hard floor surface finishes means that impact noise has become an increasing problem for property owners in Brechin. This is especially problematic in upstairs rooms, and the form of noise we're referring to here is children running around, general footfall and shifting furniture.

You shouldn't confuse acoustic or soundproofing underlay with standard carpet underlay, although some carpet stores may attempt to sell you this with claims of soundproofing attributes. If you've got significant problems with noise make sure you invest in a good quality acoustic underlay.

Even though soundproofing underlay is most effective for impact noise, some products are much better than others with regards to airborne noise such as incessant talking, booming televisions and deafening music. Before picking an underlay product you should chat with your soundproofing specialist or supplier about your particular circumstances, and identify the precise kinds of noise you are striving to reduce.

Skip Hire Brechin

The quantity of waste which is generated when undertaking home improvements or property revamps in Brechin is one of the major drawbacks of these types of projects.

It could be the case that the removal of waste is referred to in your quotation, as many tradesmen are quite happy to remove waste as an integral part of the process. Make sure that you ascertain this, since you may be stuck with doing your own waste removal.
