Soundproofer Calne Wiltshire (SN11): If you're concerned about the amount of noise that's invading your Calne home, be it in a lounge, studio, bedroom or home office, you may want to consider putting in some soundproofing. You could also be aware of noise from a home cinema or family room escaping and causing a disturbance to other inhabitants. Whatever your requirements, soundproofing will offer you sanity and peace of mind.
It is important to realise how sound travels around a structure before it's possible to identify solutions to stop it from happening.
Sound is able to move in two different ways:
1. The vibration or air molecules through the air.
2. Within and around a solid object by vibration and reflection.
As dolphin and whale songs can show, sound also travels long distances through water, however unless your intention is to soundproof an aquarium or pool we'll look only at the strategies for soundproofing structures and rooms.
SOUND TRAVEL THROUGH THE AIR
Any gaps around doors, ill fitted windows, heating ducts and even electrical sockets and switches can all be responsible for the transmission of sound outside or into a room. All sound vibrates the air molecules and these vibrations are what we hear and identify as sound. Regardless of the source of the sound; heavy machinery, music playing, road traffic, kids playing or aircraft, all sounds are created and transferred in exactly the same fashion.
It is helpful to imagine a room as a boat and inspect it carefully for leaks that require sealing.
SOUND TRAVELLING THROUGH STRUCTURES AND OBJECTS
We all know that sound is just the vibrations of air being picked up by the ear, but those vibrations are also absorbed by solid objects. Sound will cause vibrations in the floors, ceilings and walls of your rooms, and may lead to a resonation effect which is transmitted outside of the area. Even in a room that is built from a dense material that is resistant to sound, such as a concrete lined cellar, the sound can sometimes be transmitted and possibly even amplified to other areas of the structure.
How should we prevent these sounds and vibrations affecting other people? Soundproofing is the solution.
BASIC STEPS IN SOUNDPROOFING
Think about covering a bare floor, which resonates and reflects sound, with a carpet or rug. These soft coverings will help soak up noise but can also add a touch of elegance to an otherwise bare room. Wall coverings or window drapes can also be used to boost soundproofing and are simple to fit and maintain.
Locating and sealing any holes or gaps in the rooms, think light fittings, door frames, sockets and windows, is also a simple task for a competent DIY enthusiast. There are some unique acoustic sealants available to buy which suppress the sound waves, and do not transfer them to surrounding materials. There will be a considerable difference in price in comparison with a normal sealant, but the soundproofing capabilities are significantly better and can make an enormous difference to a room's soundproofing.
If the room you are working on is a blank canvas and you are soundproofing as you decorate or renovate, think about putting up another skin of plasterboard or soundboard, (also known as gypsum board, drywall or sheet rock). This is an economic and efficient soundproofing material because of its dense nature. If you're putting in a home office, home cinema or music studio then plasterboard will help in reducing sound transference to and from that room, and can be easily decorated after installation. If you aren't familiar with putting up plasterboard and studding, it's wise to use a professional Calne contractor to guarantee you the best soundproofing results from its use.
Lastly you ought to inspect all doors in the rooms that you're soundproofing. Hollow doors are a relatively cheap option although their soundproofing qualities are far from ideal. Changing hollow core doors for solid core will enhance the soundproofing characteristics of a room with only a minimal extra cost.
PROFESSIONAL SOUNDPROOFING CALNE
If the level of sound pollution is extreme in your location, because of traffic noise from a busy road nearby, or aircraft flying over for example, then more serious methods to reduce the excess noise will have to be investigated. This is an instance when the services of an established soundproofing company will deliver the best results.
They will ask the following four questions during a basic evaluation of your needs:
- What is the main area where the sound causes the biggest problems? i.e. Is it coming down from overhead, from the walls, through windows or up through the floors, or is it a combination of all these factors.
- What type of room or property do you want to soundproof? Is it a fully lined concrete wall, a brick wall or a plasterboarded partition wall etc.
- What are the particular sounds that you need to be soundproofed? i.e. Is it external noises such as overflying aircraft, noisy neighbours, road noise etc, or is it from inside your home such as a home cinema or music room.
- What is the size of the area or room that has to be soundproofed?
A specialist soundproofing company in Calne will take into consideration all of these aspects to provide solutions to your noise problems for various budgets. They will provide you with different strategies for soundproofing each of the trouble spots within your room.
PROFESSIONAL SOUNDPROOFING OF FLOORS, WALLS and CEILINGS
2 key strategies are required to soundproof any sort of space or room:
- Improve and update the amount of sound absorption.
- Lower the effect of sound vibration, amplification and reflection by solid surfaces.
To precisely determine the areas that need to be improved, a site survey must be performed by a soundproofing expert.
The team will look at ways to add materials that have different masses and densities to boost the sound absorption of the area. The addition of acoustic rubbers and foams of different mass and density will help in absorbing noises and reduce reflections and transmission sources.
Any uninsulated voids in the room may need some form of deadening material to be installed between them to reduce sound resonation. Wall cavities or flooring and ceiling voids can all be likened to a drum, where the space inside acts like an amplification source for any undesirable noise.
It is best to use combined layers of different density materials to absorb undesirable sounds than a solitary layer fabricated from one material. This is because the different material densities react better with various frequencies and will provide a better resolution to your soundproofing.
The Building Regulations (Part E) regulate the soundproofing of domestic properties, and will need to be followed by any installation company in Calne. Such regulations have to be observed in order to safeguard yourself and neighbours from the harmful effects of noise pollution.
The Association of Noise Consultants (ANC) and the Institute of Acoustics (IOA) are trade bodies who provide qualifications and training, and are representative of the very best in contractors and companies who provide soundproofing solutions. Any Calne contractor bearing IOA or ANC accreditation will have been vetted to ensure they offer the highest standards, quality and reliability of workmanship within the soundproofing industry.
