Before we are able to find methods for reducing sound pollution, we need to understand just how sound travels.

Soundproofing Carlton Colville Suffolk (NR33)

There basically a couple of ways in which sound can move around a home:

1. Through the vibration of objects or materials.

2. The vibration or air molecules through the air.

Despite the fact that sound can also travel through water, unless you are looking to reduce noise from an aquarium or swimming pool, we'll only be concerned with how to reduce sound transmission in the rooms of a structure.


If you take a good look at the room to be soundproofed and notice ill fitting windows, open air-ducting, gaps around doors and even electrical sockets and light fittings, these are all factors that can transfer sound. What we hear as sound is in fact air molucules being vibrated and reaching our ear drums. Regardless of the source of the noise; aircraft, kids playing, music playing, traffic or machinery, all sounds are generated and transmitted in exactly the same way.

Any openings within the room can be looked at as a leak and will have to be plugged.


As sound moves through the air by vibration, then it makes sense that this vibration can be reflected by, transferred to or absorbed by different solid materials. The floors, ceilings and walls will all have an impact on how sound moves around a room, and can even transmit that vibration to other rooms in a property. Even a solid concrete room, such as a basement, can generate a resonance path which channels any sound waves, and even amplify them, to other parts of a structure.

So, how can we stop these sound vibrations having a detrimental impact on other people? Soundproofing obviously.


A bare floor surface is more resonant than one covered by a carpet or rug. Not only will such a simple solution help reduce your noise pollution problem, it can also brighten up the room. Wall coverings or window drapes can also be used to boost soundproofing and are easy to install and maintain.

Locating and plugging any holes or gaps in the room, think light fittings, windows, sockets and doors, is also a simple job for a competent DIY enthusiast. It is possible to buy specialist acoustic sealants in some building supply stores which moderate the transmission of sound by absorbing the sound waves. There will be a considerable difference in the price in comparison with a normal sealant, but the soundproofing capabilities are significantly better and will make a big difference to a room.

If the room you are working on is a blank canvas and you are doing the soundproofing as you decorate or renovate, look at putting up a layer of soundboard or plasterboard, (also known as sheet rock, gypsum board or drywall). This is an efficient and economical soundproofing material due to its dense nature. It is ideal if you're setting up a home cinema, home office or studio in your home in Carlton Colville. It's preferable to hire a certified contractor near you to put up the plasterboard unless you're experienced in this task.

Soundproofer Quotes in Carlton Colville Suffolk

Last but not least you need to check out all doors in the room that you're soundproofing. If you have hollow doors fitted to rooms you'll find that they can resonate and vibrate with any sound that hits them. Exchanging hollow doors for solid ones will boost the soundproofing properties of a room with only a little more cost.


If you reside in a high noise pollution location, such as near an airport or next to busy roads, you'll need to be more imaginative in your attempts to increase the quality of the soundproofing in your house. This is where using the services of a professional soundproofing contractor will deliver the best results.

The first questions you should be asked are:

  1. What is the size of the room or space that has to be soundproofed?
  2. Is it external sounds or internal noise that you would like to deal with? i.e. To lessen traffic, trains or neighbours, or is it from internally generated sounds from a music studio or family room for instance.
  3. From which direction do the sounds appear to be coming from? i.e. Through the flooring, walls, doors, windows or ceiling or a combination of all of these.
  4. What room needs to be soundproofed? i.e. Is it a brick walled room, a plasterboard partition room, an attic conversion or a concrete lined basement.

Your answers to these queries will enable you to receive itemised quotes for the different solutions available that match your requirements. The areas of your room that are causing the biggest problems may each require different remedies.


Two key approaches are required to soundproof any sort of room:

  1. Sound absorption will have to be maximised.
  2. Lower the effect of sound amplification, vibration and reflection by hard surfaces.

An on-site survey is going to be necessary to examine the areas that need improving.

The installer will look at ways of adding materials with different densities and masses to increase the sound quality of the area. The use of acoustic foams and rubbers of varying mass and density will help to absorb noise and reduce reflections and transmission sources.

Voids between joists may require insulating to remove resonation gaps between them. Floor and ceiling voids and cavities in walls can all be likened to a drum, where the space acts like an amplification source for any undesired noise.

Soundproofing is improved if different densities and materials are utilised, rather than installing only one kind of material. This is because the different material densities react better with different frequencies and will deliver a much better overall resolution to your soundproofing exploits.

Any soundproofing company in Carlton Colville must conform to the the Building Regulations (Part E), if your property is residential in nature. Such regulations should be followed in order to safeguard yourself and others from the harmful effects of sound pollution.

The Institute of Acoustics (IOA) and the Association of Noise Consultants (ANC) are recognised trade organisations who offer training, qualifications and are representative of the very best in companies and contractors that offer soundproofing solutions. Any Carlton Colville firm bearing ANC or IOA accreditation has been appraised to make certain they provide the highest quality, standards and reliability of work within the soundproofing industry.

Acoustic Underlay Carlton Colville

If you want to minimise the noise you experience in your Carlton Colville home without causing a lot of disturbance, you could think about installing some soundproofing underlay. These soundproofing underlays can be successfully used on both concrete and timber floors, and beneath laminate, vinyl planks, engineered wood and carpet floor coverings.

When your problem is mainly impact noise and not airborne noise, soundproofing underlay is a particularly effective treatment. Many householders in Carlton Colville have a big problem with impact noise, and this is primarily owing to the increased popularity of hard floor finishes, which are more widespread these days. Upstairs rooms are the main origin of such problems, with shifting furniture, children stomping around and general footfall being frequent worries.

Although some carpet suppliers may attempt to sell you ordinary carpet underlay, claiming that it has acoustic attributes, this should not be confused with authentic soundproofing underlay. If the noise issues you are experiencing are serious, ensure that you buy a good quality acoustic underlay from a professional dealer.

Although impact noise can be substantially reduced with the help of acoustic underlays, they have varying levels of success with regards to constant talking, booming televisions and deafening music, and other airborne noise problems. Before deciding on an underlay you should talk to the supplier or soundproofing expert about your specific situation, and identify the precise types of noise you are attempting to reduce.

Acoustic Mineral Wool (AMW)

Acoustic mineral wool (AMW) is one of the most versatile products available for the soundproofing of houses in Carlton Colville and has a range of applications for your sound absorption needs. Reducing reverberation, enhancing acoustic performance and absorbing sound waves, acoustic grade mineral wool is designed specifically for installation in the cavity spaces of floors, ceilings and walls.

Acoustic Mineral Wool Carlton Colville

Usually available in slabs of 1200mm x 600mm, AMW also comes in different thicknesses (25 millimetres, 50 millimetres, 75 millimetres and 100 millimetres). Chemically inert and non-combustible, acoustic mineral wool is often made of recycled materials (about 20%). It won't have a reaction with metal wall ties, masonry, plastics, brickwork, or other materials or substances that it comes into close contact with, nor does it encourage the development of fungi, mould or bacteria.

Notably effective as a sound absorption infill when installed in the spaces between stud partitioning, floor joists and suspended ceilings, acoustic mineral wool is widely used in the building industry for fire, thermal and acoustic insulation. When it comes to separating floors and walls, and in order to comply with Part E of the Building Regulations, acoustic mineral wool can be used together with other soundproofing products.
