It's crucial for us to understand how sound is transmitted around a building before it is possible to identify techniques to prevent it from happening.

Soundproofing Chorleywood Hertfordshire (WD3)

There basically two ways in which sound can be transmitted around a home:

1. The vibration or air molecules through the air.

2. Through the vibration of objects or materials.

As whale and dolphin song shows, sound also penetrates long distance through water, but unless your intention is to soundproof an aquarium or swimming pool we'll look only at the strategies for soundproofing structures and rooms.


Significant levels of sound can be transmitted into and out of a room through gaps around doors, ill fitted windows, heating ducts and even light fittings and electrical sockets. All noise and sound will initiate movement and vibration of the air molecules, and it is this that we pick up and hear. It doesn't matter whether it's heavy machinery, road traffic, children playing, aeroplanes or music, they all generate and transfer sound in the same way.

Any holes within the room can be considered to be leaks and will have to be blocked.


Sound waves can additionally be absorbed by, transferred to or reflected by solid materials and structures. Sound will vibrate the walls, floors and ceilings of your rooms, and can cause a resonating effect that is transferred outside of the room itself. Even a solid concrete room, such as a cellar, can produce a resonance path which transports any sound waves, and even amplify them, to other parts of a property.

How do we stop these sounds from affecting others? Soundproofing obviously.


If you've got bare floorboards or floors, consider putting down a few rugs or cover with a carpet to help in reducing any vibrations and sound reflections. The rugs or other soft coverings will help to soak up noise but can also add a bit of style to a previously bare room. Hanging wall coverings and curtains can also avoid sound reflections and vibrations through walls and windows without the need to bring in a professional team of soundproofing installers.

Track down areas in your rooms where sound can come in or escape from; windows, light fittings, door frames and sockets, and close off the gaps. Sealing the gaps and holes with a professional acoustic sealant found in many DIY and building material shops, will make a big difference to how your room sounds. They are a tad more expensive than standard plaster or sealants, but they're worthwhile for their soundproofing efficiency.

For those of you who are renovating a property or redecorating a room, evaluate the soundproofing benefits of adding a supplementary layer of plasterboard or soundboard, (also known as sheet rock, drywall or gyproc), while you are undertaking the project. Plasterboard is a very dense material that is both effective and economical for soundproofing purposes. It's ideal for areas such as studies, movie rooms or studios being built within your house in Chorleywood. It is far better to hire an experienced contractor near you to install plasterboard unless you're experienced in this task.

Soundproofer Quotes in Chorleywood Hertfordshire

One final simple soundproofing treatment is to check the materials from which your doors are made. Hollow doors are a fairly cheap option although their soundproofing capabilities are a far cry from the best. Exchanging hollow core doors for solid core will substantially boost the soundproofing of a room with only a little more cost.


If you live in a high noise pollution location, such as next to a busy road or near an airport, you'll need to be more inventive in your efforts to enhance the soundproofing in your home. You'll get the most effective soundproofing results by using the services of a professional soundproofing specialist.

Soundproofer Near Chorleywood Hertfordshire

They will ask the four following questions during a basic assessment of your requirements:

  1. What type of property or room do you want to soundproof? Is it a lined concrete wall, a brick wall or a stud partition wall etc.
  2. What are the dimensions of the room or area that has to be soundproofed?
  3. What noise or sounds are you seeking to suppress? i.e. External issues such as street noise, aircraft, noisy neighbours etc, or sounds within your property from a teenagers bedroom or family room.
  4. Where is the majority of the sound emanating from? The flooring, walls, doors, windows or ceiling.

With answers to these queries a trustworthy soundproofing installer in Chorleywood will offer you solutions for your circumstances, and just as importantly, your spending budget. Remedies will vary in line with the different materials required for each of the trouble spots in your property.


2 key components are required to soundproof any kind of space or room:

  1. Improve and maximise the level of sound absorption.
  2. Lessen the effect of sound reflection, amplification and vibration by solid surfaces.

A site survey is going to be necessary to pinpoint the areas to be improved.

A professional will consider the different ways to add mass and density to the areas with problems. The use of acoustic rubbers and foams of different density and mass will help in absorbing noise and reduce reflections and transmission sources.

The insulation between any voids will be upgraded or improved to reduce the sound amplification and resonation of these sound boxes. If you think about a drum for example, you are looking at a noise amplifying void enclosed within a resonating material; in essence what you may find inside floor and ceiling joists, or wall cavities.

Combined layers of differing density and mass materials do a better job of absorbing sound than a solitary layer of one material type. The diverse materials will isolate different frequencies of noise and offer a more balanced feeling and auditory experience to a room.

Part E of the Building Regulations cover the soundproofing of residential properties, and must be applied by any soundproofing company in Chorleywood. Part E of the Building Regulations is a legally binding requirement to protect your neighbours and yourself from the effects of noise pollution in a setting where folks live and work.

The Institute of Acoustics (IOA) and the Association of Noise Consultants (ANC) are recognised trade bodies who offer qualifications and training, and are representative of the best in companies and contractors which offer soundproofing solutions.

Acoustic Mineral Wool

AMW (otherwise known as acoustic mineral wool) is one of the most versatile materials for the soundproofing of properties in Chorleywood and has various applications for your noise reduction requirements. Acoustic grade mineral wool is designed specifically for installation in the cavity spaces of floors, walls and ceilings, to improve acoustic performance, absorb sound waves and reduce reverberation.

Acoustic Mineral Wool Chorleywood

Commonly available in "slabs" of 1200mm x 600mm, AMW also comes in different thicknesses (25mm, 50mm, 75mm and 100mm). Acoustic mineral wool is often made from recycled materials (around 20%), is non-flammable and is chemically inert. It doesn't react with any materials that it comes into close contact with (i.e. metal wall ties, brickwork, plastics, masonryetc), and does not encourage the development of bacteria, fungi or mould.

Notably effective as a sound absorption infill when used between suspended ceilings, stud partitioning and floor joists, AMW is widely used in the building industry for acoustic, fire and thermal insulation. With regards to separating floors and walls, and when used together with other soundproofing products, acoustic mineral wool can help in observing The Building Regulations (Part E).

Soundproofing Foam Chorleywood

After doing some elementary keyword research, it appears as if one of the most commonly searched for terms on Google and Bing is for "soundproofing foam" and for property owners in Chorleywood, possibly "soundproofing foam Chorleywood". That's actually quite concerning, because it illustrates that Chorleywood homeowners are under the impression that soundproofing foam products are suitable for fixing their noise problems.

It's not my intention to ruin anyone's day, but most soundproofing issues cannot be solved with this product, and if your objective is to reduce the racket caused by noisy neighbours in Chorleywood, you'll have to look for something better.

The foam in the form of an "egg box" which you often see being sold in sheet or tile form isn't really meant for blocking out noise, but is really intended for use in music studios and comparable environments, to reduce reverberation and echoing and enhance the sound clarity in a room. Acoustic foam like this is not effective in preventing noise from travelling around your house, or preventing sound from passing through a neighbours wall. As opposed to stopping it, acoustic foam actually allows sound to pass through it, because it is in fact porous.

This material may however be extremely useful for you if you have a music studio in your home in Chorleywood, and if this is the case you'll discover that it is available in different sheet sizes and thicknesses.

Soundproofing Underlay Chorleywood

An effective way of adding a degree of soundproofing to your home in Chorleywood, without any significant disturbance, is to install soundproofing underlay. These soundproofing underlays can be used on both concrete and timber floors, and beneath laminate, vinyl planks, engineered wood and carpet floor coverings.

When your issue is for the most part impact noise and not airborne noise, soundproofing underlay is an especially effective solution. A recent increase in the popularity of "hard" floor finishes in Chorleywood, means that there are a growing number of issues with impact noise. This is especially problematic when coming from upstairs rooms, and the form of noise issues that we are talking about here is children running around, shifting furniture and general foot traffic.

Although some carpet stockists may attempt to sell you normal carpet underlay, claiming that it has acoustic qualities, this should not be confused with genuine soundproofing underlay. If you've got serious noise concerns ensure that you buy a decent soundproofing underlay.

While impact noise can be dramatically lowered with the help of acoustic underlays, they have varying degrees of success when it comes to loud music, booming televisions and incessant talking, and other airborne noise pollution. So, when choosing a product it's important to identify the specific sorts of noise you're striving to lower, and have a discussion about this with your soundproofing expert or supplier beforehand.
