It's important for us to understand how sound travels around a building before it is possible to identify strategies to prevent it from occurring.

Soundproofing Broadstairs Kent (CT10)

Sound basically moves in two ways around a room:

1. In open spaces by movement of air.

2. Through the vibration of objects or materials.

Sound is also transmitted through water, but unless you're looking at soundproofing a pool or aquarium we will just concentrate on its isolation via air and materials.

SOUND THROUGH THE AIR

Any single glazed windows, gaps around doors, heating ducts and even electrical sockets and light fittings can all affect the transmission of sound outside or into a room. What we hear as sound is really the vibration of air molecules being picked up by our ear drums. Irrespective of the source of the sound; traffic, children playing, passing aircraft, music playing or heavy machinery, all sound is produced and transmitted in precisely the same way.

If you try and visualise your room as if it were a bucket, you're trying to identify any leaks to seal before you fill it up with liquid.

SOUND THROUGH STRUCTURES AND OBJECTS

Sound waves can also be reflected by, absorbed by or transferred to solid objects and structures. Sound can be transported around a property from its source by the vibration of ceilings, walls and floors. Even in a room that's built from a dense material which is resistant against sound, such as a concrete basement, the sound can be transmitted and even amplified to other areas of the dwelling.

But, how can these effects be prevented from causing a problem? The answer is of course, soundproofing!

BASIC SOUNDPROOFING STEPS

Give some thought to covering bare floors, which resonate and reflect sound, with a rug or carpet. The rugs or other soft coverings will help to soak up sounds but can also add a touch of elegance to a previously bare room. Wall coverings or window drapes can also be employed to improve soundproofing and are simple to install and maintain.

Another inexpensive and do-it-yourself solution is to plug any holes or gaps around sockets, light fittings, windows and door frames. Plugging the holes and gaps with an acoustic sealant found in some DIY shops and builders merchants, will make a huge difference to how your room sounds. Acoustic sealants are inclined to be slightly more pricey than standard sealant products, however the special design has far greater soundproofing performance and is worth the additional cost.

If your room is a blank canvas and you're soundproofing while you renovate or decorate, think about installing a skin of plasterboard or soundboard, (also known as drywall, gypsum board or sheet rock). This is an economic and efficient soundproofing material owing to its dense nature. It's excellent for areas such as home cinemas, home offices or music studios which are being built within the home. If you do choose plasterboard to aid your soundproofing exploits it is advisable to hire a specialist fitter in Broadstairs, to gain the maximum benefit from its installment.

Soundproofer Quotes in Broadstairs Kent

Last but not least you should check all doors in the room you're planning to soundproof. Although hollow doors are light and comparatively cheap, their soundproofing attributes are not the best. Solid doors, whilst a little more expensive, can have a significant effect on the soundproofing capabilities of a room.

Voids between floor joists might need insulating to eliminate the resonating space between them. Wall cavities or flooring and ceiling voids can all be assimilated with a drum, where the space acts as an amplifying area for unwanted noise.

It is best to use combined layers of different densities to deaden undesired noises than a single layer fabricated from one sort of material. This is because the various different materials react in different ways with various frequencies and will deliver a better acoustic resolution to your soundproofing project.
