Soundproofer Bridgend Wales (CF31): If noise is causing problems in your property in Bridgend then it is time to think about some soundproofing to make your home office, bedroom, living room or studio a peaceful haven from the outside world. You may also be concerned about any noise from a family room or home cinema room seeping out and causing a disturbance to other inhabitants. Whatever your needs, soundproofing will provide you with peace of mind and sanity.
It's crucial to realise how sound travels around a building before it is possible to discover techniques to stop it from happening.
There basically a couple of ways by which sound can move around a home:
1. The vibration or air molecules through the air.
2. Through the vibration of objects or materials.
Despite the fact that sound also travels through water, unless you're wanting to reduce noises from an aquarium or pool, we'll only be concerned with how to soundproof the rooms of a property.
SOUND THROUGH THE AIR
Any gaps around doors, ill fitting windows, heating ducts and even electrical sockets and switches can all be responsible for the transmission of sound outside or into a room. Any noise vibrates the air molecules and this vibration is what we identify and hear as sound. Irrespective of the source of the sound; music playing, aeroplanes, nearby traffic, kids playing or machinery, all sounds are produced and transmitted in precisely the same way.
If you can visualise your room as a bucket, and you are attempting to identify any leaks that need sealing before you fill it up with liquid.
SOUND TRAVEL THROUGH OBJECTS AND STRUCTURES
Sound waves can also be reflected by, absorbed by or transferred to solid materials and structures. Sound will cause vibrations in the ceilings, floors and walls of your rooms, and may cause a resonating effect that is transferred outside of the area. Care should be taken with solid concrete or brick walls, such as in cellars, because sound can be transmitted and amplified to other parts of your home.
So, how can we stop these sounds having a detrimental impact on others? Soundproofing obviously.
SIMPLE STEPS IN SOUNDPROOFING
If you have bare floors or floorboards, think about laying a few rugs or cover with a carpet to help reduce any vibrations and sound reflections. Not only can such a simple solution reduce your problem with noise, but 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 to hire a professional team of soundproofing installers.
Search for areas in the rooms where noise can come in or escape from; light fittings, doors, windows and electrical sockets, and seal up the gaps or holes. It is possible to buy specialist acoustic sealants in some building supply stores that deaden the transmission of sound by absorbing the sound waves. Acoustic sealants are inclined to be a bit more expensive than normal sealant products, but their outstanding soundproofing qualities far outweigh the small extra cost.
If you are fortunate enough to be renovating or redecorating while tackling your soundproofing, then look at putting up an extra skin of plasterboard (also known as sheet rock, gyproc or drywall). This is an efficient and economical soundproofing material because of its dense nature. If you are putting in a games room, home office or home cinema then plasterboard can help reduce sound pollution for that room, and can be readily decorated after completion. If you are not experienced in putting up studding and plasterboard, it is better to hire a specialist Bridgend contractor to guarantee you the optimum soundproofing gains from its use.
One last simple soundproofing remedy is to look at the materials your doors are made of. Hollow doors are a relatively cheap option but their soundproofing capabilities are a far cry from perfect. If you are able to change to solid doors you will find it improves your room's soundproofing at minimal extra cost.
PROFESSIONAL SOUNDPROOFING SOLUTIONS BRIDGEND
Some properties, such as those beside busy traffic routes or on aircraft flight paths, naturally have more sound pollution issues and will need other ways to resolve the dilemma. You will get the very best soundproofing outcome by using the expertise of a skilled soundproofing company.
The initial questions you should be asked are:
- How big is the area that you need to have soundproofed?
- What type of room or area do you wish to soundproof? Is it a brick wall, a plasterboarded partition wall or a fully lined concrete wall etc.
- What are the particular noises that need to soundproofed? i.e. Is it sounds from inside your property such as a home cinema or music room, or outside noises such as next door neighbours, street noise, trains, etc.
- Precisely where is the primary source of the sound emanating from? i.e. Above, through the windows, doors, walls, floors or ceiling, or a combination.
Your answers to these queries will enable you to get quotations for the various available solutions that match your circumstances. There'll be different solutions for each of the key areas the space you want to soundproof.
PROFESSIONAL SOUNDPROOFING OF FLOORS, CEILINGS and WALLS
Two key approaches are needed to soundproof any sort of room:
- Reduce sound amplifying and reverberation.
- Improve sound absorption.
To effectively analyse the aspects that need improvement, a site survey must be conducted by a professional soundproofing team.
A specialist will evaluate the different methods for adding density and mass to the trouble spots. Soundproofing will be enhanced by the addition of acoustic foam and rubber which will absorb sound waves and enhance and the sound quality of an area.
The insulation between any existing voids will be improved to reduce the noise amplification and resonation of these "sound boxes". Floor and ceiling voids and wall cavities can all be assimilated with a drum, where the space inside acts like an amplification source for unwanted sounds.
It's better to use combined layers of different densities to deaden undesirable noises than a solitary layer fabricated from one type of soundproofing material. This is due to the fact that different frequencies are affected by different materials, therefore a variety of shapes, densities and layers within your soundproofing armoury are required.
All soundproofing providers in Bridgend will be needing to follow the requirements for domestic buildings laid out in Part E of the Building Regulations. These regulations should be followed in order to safeguard yourself and others from being negatively impacted by sound pollution.
The Association of Noise Consultants (ANC) and the Institute of Acoustics (IOA) are trade bodies who offer qualifications and training, and are representative of the very best in contractors and companies which offer soundproofing services.
