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

Soundproofing Broxbourne Hertfordshire (EN10)

Sound is able to travel in a couple of ways:

1. Through objects by the vibration of the material.

2. By the vibration of air molecules.

Although sound can also travel through water, unless you're wanting to isolate noise from a swimming pool or aquarium, we will only be interested in how to reduce sound transmission in rooms within a building.


If you check around the room or area to be soundproofed and detect heating ducts, gaps around doors, ill fitting windows and even electrical sockets and light fittings, these are all causes of sound transmission. What we hear as sound is actually the vibration of air molecules reaching our ear drums. It does not matter if it's passing aircraft, machinery, road traffic, kids playing or music playing, they all produce and transfer sound in the same way.

If you can think of your room as a bucket, you are attempting to find any leaks to seal before you can fill it up with water.


Sound waves can also be absorbed by, transferred to or reflected by solid objects and structures. Sound can be moved around a building from its source by the vibration of walls, floors and ceilings. Even if a room is built from a dense material that is resistant against sound, such as a concrete basement, the sound can sometimes be transmitted and perhaps even amplified to other rooms in the building.

So, how can we stop these sound vibrations affecting other people? Soundproofing of course.


If you have bare floor surfaces or floorboards, think about covering them with carpet or putting down a few rugs to help reduce any sound reflections and vibrations. These soft coverings will help to absorb noises and can also add a bit of style to a previously bare room. Curtains, especially substantial blackout types, will also subdue any sounds from invading or escaping a room, economically and without requiring professional installation.

Another economical and do-it-yourself solution is to plug any holes around doors, light fittings, windows and electrical sockets. There are some special acoustic sealants available on the market which suppress the sound waves, and do not transfer them to surrounding materials. Acoustic sealants are inclined to be a bit more pricey than normal sealant products, but the special design has far greater soundproofing performance and is certainly worth the small additional cost.

If you're going to be redecorating or renovating while dealing with your soundproofing requirements, then think about the possibility of installing an additional skin of plasterboard (also known as sheet rock, drywall or gyproc). This is an economic and efficient soundproofing material due to its dense nature. It's excellent for areas such as home offices, studios or movie rooms which are being built within the home. It is preferable to hire a specialist Broxbourne tradesman to put up the plasterboard unless you are experienced in this task.

Lastly you ought to check all doors in the area you're looking to soundproof. Whilst hollow doors are light and relatively inexpensive, their soundproofing attributes are not that brilliant. Switching hollow core doors for solid core will enhance the soundproofing of a room with only a little more cost.

2 key strategies are needed to soundproof any sort of room:

  1. Minimise sound amplifying and resonating.
  2. Increase and maximise the amount of sound absorption.

This requires an on-site survey to determine exactly what areas require improving from the present condition.

The specialists will work out ways to add materials that have different masses and densities to improve the sound quality of the room. Soundproofing will be enhanced by the addition of acoustic foam and rubber which absorbs sound waves and improves and a room's sound quality.

Insulation between any voids will be improved or upgraded to lower the sound amplification and resonation of these sound boxes. If you imagine a drum or wooden cajon, you are looking at a sound increasing void enclosed within a resonating material; fundamentally what you may encounter within ceiling and floor joists, or wall cavities.

It is far better to use combined layers of different densities to soak up undesired noises than a solitary layer made from one soundproofing material. This is due to the fact that the various different materials react in different ways with various frequencies and will provide a better overall solution to your soundproofing exploits.

Part E of the Building Regulations regulate the soundproofing of residential properties, and will have to be applied by any soundproofing firm in Broxbourne. These requirements have to be adopted so as to protect yourself and others from the harmful effects of sound pollution.

Only those Broxbourne businesses that have been vetted and approved by these trade organisations for quality, professionalism and reliability are allowed to bear the logo.

Soundproofing or Acoustic Underlay Broxbourne

One of the less disruptive methods of adding some extra soundproofing to your Broxbourne property is through the installation of soundproofing underlay. This can be used on concrete or timber floors and can be used beneath vinyl planks, carpet, laminate, engineered wood, and several other flooring types.

Where there are issues with impact noise rather than airborne noise, acoustic underlay is especially beneficial. Nowadays, the increased popularity of "harder" floor finishes has led to more complaints about impact noise in lots of Broxbourne properties. The type of noise issues we're referring to here is moving furniture, general foot traffic and children running around, especially from rooms upstairs.

Do not confuse standard carpet underlay with genuine soundproofing or acoustic underlay, as some carpet stockists might try to pass off such products, claiming that they are suitable substitutes. If the noise issues you are experiencing are serious, make sure that you buy a decent acoustic underlay from a respectable dealer.

Although it's a winning product for impact noise, acoustic underlay has differing degrees of success when it comes to dealing with airborne noise issues such as booming televisions, shouting and deafening music, and some products are definitely much better than others. Before buying an underlay product you should chat with the soundproofing expert or supplier about your particular situation, and identify the exact types of noise you are wanting to lower.
