Before we are able to identify strategies for eliminating sound pollution, it might help if we understand how sound travels and is transmitted.

Soundproofing Bulkington Warwickshire (CV12)

There basically a couple of ways by which sound can be transmitted around a home:

1. The vibration or air molecules through the air.

2. Through objects by the vibration of the material.

Sound can also travel through water, however unless you're planning to soundproof an aquarium or pool we will simply consider the isolation via materials and air.


If you check out your area to be soundproofed and discover single glazed windows, gaps around doors, open ducting and even electrical sockets and light fittings, these are all causes of sound transmission. All sound vibrates the molecules in the air and these vibrations are what we identify and hear as sound. No matter the source of the noise; kids playing, heavy machinery, passing aircraft, music or traffic, all sound is generated and transferred in exactly the same manner.

If you try to visualise your room as if it were a bucket, and you're attempting to identify any leaks which need sealing before you fill it up with water.


If sound moves through the air by vibration, then it seems logical that this vibration can be transferred to, absorbed by or reflected by various solid materials. Sound can be transmitted around a property from its source by the vibration of floors, walls and ceilings. Even a room made of solid concrete, such as a cellar, can produce a resonance path which transports any sound waves, and even amplify them, to other parts of a dwelling.

How should we stop these sounds and vibrations affecting other people? Soundproofing is the solution.


Give some thought to covering bare floors, which reflect and resonate sound, with a rug or carpet. The rugs or other soft coverings will help absorb noises and can also add a bit of elegance to a previously bare room. Hanging wall coverings and curtains can also damp down sound vibrations and reflections through windows and walls without the need to bring in a team of professional soundproofers.

Finding and plugging any gaps or holes around the rooms, think doors, light fittings, windows and sockets, is also a simple job for a capable do-it-yourselfer. There are some unique acoustic sealants available to buy that absorb the sound waves, and don't transfer them to surrounding materials. Acoustic sealants can be slightly more expensive than standard plaster or other sealant products, however their unique soundproofing qualities far outweigh the additional cost.

If you are fortunate enough to be redecorating or renovating while tackling your soundproofing requirements, then look into putting up an additional skin of plasterboard (also called gyproc, sheet rock or drywall). This is an economic and efficient soundproofing material owing to its dense nature. It is ideal if you are setting up a studio, movie room or study in your property in Bulkington. It's preferable to hire a professional contractor near you to put up the plasterboard unless you are experienced in this task.

The last DIY solution is to consider the doors in your home in Bulkington. Hollow doors are a relatively cheap option but their soundproofing qualities are a far cry from ideal. If you're able to change to solid wood doors you'll discover that it boosts your soundproofing more cheaply than some other options.


If your home is in a high noise pollution location, such as next to a busy road or near an airport, you will need to be more inspired in your endeavours to enhance the soundproofing qualities of your house. The best way to resolve these problems is to get in touch with a reliable soundproofing and acoustic contractor from your local region.

Soundproofing Services Bulkington (CV12)

Voids between joists might need insulation to remove resonation spaces between them. If you envision such spaces as similar to a drum or wooden cajon then you'll see that by leaving wall cavities and floor or ceiling joist spaces open, you're effectively creating a sound amplification area.

It is better to use mixed layers of different density materials to deaden unwelcome noises than a solitary layer made from one soundproofing material. This is due to the fact that different frequencies are affected by different materials, therefore a diversity of layers, densities and shapes within your soundproofing panels are needed.

All soundproofing specialists in Bulkington will be needing to follow the regulations for residential properties as set down in Part E of the Building Regulations. Part E of the Building Regulations is a requirement in law to protect your neighbours and yourself from the negative effects of noise pollution in an environment where folks live and work.

Look out for contractors displaying the logos of the Association of Noise Consultants (ANC) or the Institute of Acoustics (IOA) to guarantee that you're using a business that is knowledgable and fully qualified in the soundproofing industry. Any Bulkington company displaying ANC or IOA accreditation will have been vetted to ensure they offer the highest reliability, quality and standards of work within the soundproofing industry.

Acoustic Mineral Wool

For you sound absorption needs in Bulkington, acoustic mineral wool is one of the handiest materials on the market for the soundproofing of houses or other buildings, and has a range of applications. Designed specifically for installation in the cavity spaces of ceilings, walls and floors, acoustic mineral wool is effective in absorbing sound waves, reducing reverberation and enhancing acoustic performance.

Acoustic Mineral Wool Bulkington

Typically available in "slabs" of 1200mm x 600mm, AMW also comes in different thicknesses (25mm, 50mm, 75mm and 100mm). Often partly made with recycled raw materials, AMW is chemically inert, and is non-flammable. It will not react with any substances or materials that it comes into contact with (i.e. masonry, plastics, brickwork, metal wall tiesetc), and doesn't encourage the development of bacteria, fungi or mould.

When used as a sound absorbing infill between suspended ceilings, flooring joists and stud partitioning, AMW is particularly effective, and it's renowned in the building industry for its acoustic, thermal and fire insulation properties. When used side by side with other soundproofing products, acoustic mineral wool can help in abiding by The Building Regulations (Part E) when it comes to separating walls and floors.

Soundproofing Foam Bulkington

After performing some simple keyword research, it looks like one of the most popular searches on Google is for "soundproofing foam" and for property owners in Bulkington, something like "soundproofing foam Bulkington". That is really quite interesting, as it suggests that Bulkington householders are assuming that acoustic foam products are suitable for solving their noise pollution issues.

The last thing I want to do is rain on anyone's parade, but if you're assuming that the racket from your noisy neighbours in Bulkington can be eliminated with soundproofing foam, then you're wide of the mark.

Stopping the transmission of noise isn't the function of the familiar "egg box" shaped foam, which was actually created for use in music studios and comparable environments, where it can enhance the sound clarity in a room, and reduce amplification, reverberation and echoing. It's not good for stopping noise from moving freely around your house, or stopping sound from passing through the wall of a neighbouring building. Because it is porous, acoustic foam actually absorbs sound and permits sound to pass through, rather than blocking it.

If however, you are changing some free space into a music room, this may be a valuable product for you to use, and can be found in various thicknesses (usually 25mm and 50mm), and in different sheet and tile sizes.
