It's crucial to realise how sound travels and is transmitted around an area before it is possible to identify techniques to prevent it from occurring.

Soundproofing Carnforth Lancashire (LA5)

Basically, sound moves in two ways throughout your home:

1. Through the air by vibration of air molecules.

2. Through the vibration of objects or materials.

Despite the fact that sound can also travel through water, unless you are wanting to eliminate noise from a swimming pool or aquarium, we will just be interested in how to reduce sound transmission in rooms within a building.

SOUND THROUGH THE AIR

If you check around the space to be soundproofed and detect heating ducts, ill fitted windows, gaps around doors and even electrical sockets and light fittings, these are all factors that can transfer sound. All sounds and noise will create the vibration and movement of the air molecules, and this is what we identify and hear. It matters not whether it's machinery, children playing, traffic, passing aircraft or music, they all create and transmit sound in the same way.

If you can think of your room as a bucket, you're trying to identify any leaks to seal before you can fill it with liquid.

SOUND THROUGH STRUCTURES AND OBJECTS

We all know that sound is simply the vibration of air reaching the ear, but that vibration is also absorbed by solid materials. Sound will cause vibrations in the ceilings, walls and floors of your rooms, and can result in a resonation effect which is transmitted outside the area. Even in a room that is built from a solid material that's proofed against sound, such as a concrete basement, the sound can be reflected and possibly even amplified to other parts of the property.

How do we stop this sound transference from affecting others? Soundproofing obviously.

BASIC STEPS IN SOUNDPROOFING

Give some thought to covering a bare floor, which resonates and reflects sound, with a carpet or rug. Such a simple and straightforward solution can help to damp down any noise and spruce up the room at the same time. Wall coverings or window drapes can also be employed to boost soundproofing and are simple to install.

Finding and plugging any gaps in your rooms, think sockets, windows, door frames and light fittings, is also a straightforward job for a competent DIY'er. It is possible to purchase specialist acoustic sealants in many building supply stores which deaden the transfer of sound by absorbing the sound waves. They may be somewhat more pricey than standard plaster or sealants, but they are worth the cost for their soundproofing qualities.

If you are fortunate enough to be redecorating or renovating while dealing with your soundproofing requirements, then look into putting up an additional skin of plasterboard (also known as drywall, sheet rock or gypsum board). This is an efficient and economical soundproofing material due to its dense nature. If you are putting in a movie room, home office or games room then plasterboard will help in reducing sound transmission from and to that room, and can be easily decorated after installment. If you aren't experienced in putting up plasterboard and studding, it's wise to use a specialist team to guarantee you the best soundproofing benefits from its installation.

The final do-it-yourself solution is to check out the doors in your home in Carnforth. If you have hollow doors installed in your rooms you'll find they can vibrate and will resonate any sound that is aimed at them. If you're able to change to solid doors you'll find it enhances your room's soundproofing at minimal extra cost.

PROFESSIONAL SOUNDPROOFING CARNFORTH

If the level of sound is high in your area, because of aircraft passing overhead, or traffic noise from a busy road for example, then more severe methods to deal with the excess noise may have to be explored. You will get the very best soundproofing outcome by retaining the services of a skilled soundproofing specialist.

Soundproofer Near Carnforth Lancashire

Be prepared to answer the following four questions during an assessment of your specific soundproofing needs:

  1. Is it internal sounds or external noise that you wish to target? i.e. To suppress traffic noise, aircraft or next door neighbours, or is it from internally produced sounds from a home cinema or music studio for instance.
  2. How big is the area you need to be soundproofed?
  3. Where is most of the noise pollution coming from? The ceiling, windows, floors, walls or doors.
  4. What type of area or room do you wish to soundproof? Is it a brick wall, a fully lined concrete wall or a plasterboarded partition wall etc.

With answers to these queries a good quality soundproofing installer in Carnforth will work out solutions for your situation, and just as important, your spending budget. There will be different remedies for each of the main key areas of the room you want to soundproof.

PROFESSIONAL SOUNDPROOFING OF CEILINGS, WALLS and FLOORS

To soundproof any type of room requires two key strategies:

  1. Improve and update the level of sound absorption.
  2. Reduce sound reverberation and amplifying.

An on-site survey will be needed to assess the areas to be improved.

The specialists will figure out ways of adding materials that have different densities and masses to improve the sound quality of the area. Soundproofing can be boosted by the addition of acoustic foam and rubber which will absorb soundwaves and enhance and the sound quality of a space.

Voids between floor joists may need insulating to remove the resonating gap between them. If you envision these spaces as similar to a drum then you will see that by leaving floor or ceiling joist spaces and wall cavities empty, you're effectively creating a sound amplifying area.

Soundproofing is maximised if different densities and materials are utilised, rather than installing only one kind of material. The diverse materials will isolate different sound frequencies and deliver a more harmonious feeling and auditory experience to a room.

All soundproofing contractors in Carnforth will be needing to follow the legislation for domestic properties as specified by the Building Regulations (Part E). This regulation has the aim of protecting neighbours and other residents in the area from the impact and effect of noise pollution.

Keep an eye out for contractors showing the logos of the Association of Noise Consultants or the Institute of Acoustics to guarantee that you are dealing with a business that's knowledgable and fully qualified in the soundproofing industry. Only those Carnforth businesses that have been vetted and approved by these trade bodies for professionalism, quality and reliability are permitted to display the logo.

AMW (Acoustic Mineral Wool)

One of the handiest materials available for the soundproofing of homes in Carnforth, AMW (or acoustic mineral wool) has several applications for your sound absorption needs. Designed specifically for installation in the cavity spaces of walls, ceilings and floors, acoustic mineral wool is effective in absorbing airborne sound, improving acoustic performance and reducing reverberation.

Acoustic Mineral Wool Carnforth

Commonly available in "slabs" of 600mm x 1200mm, acoustic mineral wool also comes in several thicknesses (25mm, 50mm, 75mm and 100mm). Non-flammable and chemically inert, AMW is often made with recycled raw materials (around 20%). It is rare for mould, fungi or bacteria to form in AMW, and it won't react with plastics, masonry, metal wall ties, brickwork, or other substances or materials that it comes into contact with.

Recognised in the building sector for its thermal, fire and acoustic insulation properties, acoustic mineral wool is notably effective as a sound absorbing filler when installed in the spaces between stud partitions, flooring joists and suspended ceilings. When it comes to separating floors and walls, and when used along with other soundproofing materials, AMW can help in abiding by Part E of the Building Regulations.

Soundproofing Foam Carnforth

I recently thought I would look at what people in Carnforth are searching online for in relation to soundproofing, and it seems that when looking on Google and Bing one of the most commonly types in requests is "soundproofing foam". And on a local basis queries include things like "soundproofing foam Carnforth". This is somewhat perplexing, because it implies a lack of understanding by local householders who seem to be under the impression that their noise pollution problems can be resolved with acoustic foam.

It isn't my intention to rain on anyone's parade, but most soundproofing issues cannot be helped by this type of product, and if your objective is to reduce the racket caused by noisy neighbours in Carnforth, you will need to look for something better.

The familiar "egg box" style foam, that appears to be the trademark of soundproofing, wasn't actually developed for stopping the transmission of noise, but is meant for the reduction of echoing and amplifying in music studios and similar surroundings, where it can also enhance the sound clarity in a room. This kind of soundproofing foam is not efficient at preventing noise from passing through a neighbours wall, or stopping sound from moving around the rooms of your property. Because acoustic foam is spongy and porous, it actually lets sound pass right through it, and doesn't have the consistency to block it.

This product may however be useful for you if you have a music room in your house in Carnforth, and if this is the case you'll discover that it can be purchased in various thicknesses and sheet sizes.

Acoustic Underlay Carnforth

One of the less troublesome techniques for adding some extra soundproofing to your home in Carnforth is through the installation of acoustic or soundproofing underlay. Both concrete and wooden floors are suitable for these soundproofing underlays, and they can be laid under vinyl planks, engineered wood, laminate and carpet.

Essentially, soundproofing underlay can be a particularly beneficial solution where your issue is not so much airborne noise but mostly an impact noise problem. The more widespread use of hard floor finishing products means that impact noise has become an ever-increasing issue for homeowners in Carnforth. This is especially problematic when coming from upstairs rooms, and the type of noise issues we're referring to here is children running around, moving furniture and general foot traffic.

Although some unprincipled carpet distributors might attempt to sell you standard carpet underlay, claiming that it has noise cancelling benefits, this should not be confused with authentic soundproofing underlay. Ensure that you invest in a decent soundproofing underlay, if you have significant noise problems.

Although the installation of acoustic underlay can be quite successful for lowering impact noise within your home, airborne noise like booming televisions, loud music and constant talking, can be a different thing altogether, with some products being superior to others and having varying success rates. Hence, before deciding on a product it is vital to understand the specific types of noise you are trying to minimise, and discuss this with the soundproofing specialist or supplier.

Carnforth Skip Hire Services

With the majority of home refurbishments or property makeovers in Carnforth, a fair amount of waste will be produced, and therefore you will need to make allowances for this during the planning stage. Your particular soundproofing may generate very little waste, and then again it might produce a lot. You might need to make your own arrangements for waste removal, as a lot of soundproofing companies don't include this in their quote.

In general mini-skips accommodate approximately 2 yd³ of rubbish, midi-skips accommodate approximately 4 yd³ of rubbish, builders skips accommodate approximately 6 yd³ of rubbish and roll-on-roll-off skips accommodate approximately 20 yd³ of rubbish.
