Soundproofer Colne Lancashire (BB8): If your Colne property is being adversely affected by noise, perhaps you should consider installing or upgrading your soundproofing to bring tranquillity to your bedroom, home office, living room or studio. You might also be concerned about any noise from a family room or home cinema room seeping out and disturbing others. No matter what soundproofing needs are required, it will be essential for you and your neighbour's sanity and peace of mind.
Before we are able to identify methods for countering sound pollution, we need to understand how sound travels and is transmitted.
Sound basically travels in two ways throughout your room:
1. In open spaces by movement of air.
2. Through objects by the vibration of the material.
As whale and dolphin song demonstrates, sound also travels through water, however unless your aim is to soundproof an aquarium or pool we will look only at the techniques of soundproofing rooms and structures.
SOUND TRAVELLING THROUGH THE AIR
Significant levels of sound can be transmitted into and out of a room through gaps around doors, heating ducts, single glazed windows and even light fittings and electrical sockets. All noise and sound will create the vibration and movement of the air molecules, and this is what we hear. It matters not if it's passing aircraft, kids playing, music playing, machinery or traffic, they all generate and transmit sound in the same way.
You should therefore think of a room as a boat and carefully inspect it for leaks that need to be plugged before you can dare to sail it.
SOUND THROUGH OBJECTS AND STRUCTURES
Sound waves can additionally be absorbed by, reflected by or transferred to solid objects and structures. Sound can be transmitted around a dwelling from its original source via the vibration of ceilings, floors and walls. Care should be taken with solid concrete or brick walls, such as a basement, because sound can be reflected and sometimes even amplified to other rooms in your home.
So, how can we stop this sound transference affecting other people? Soundproofing obviously.
BASIC SOUNDPROOFING STEPS
Give some thought to covering bare floors, which reflect and resonate sound, with a carpet or rug. Such a straightforward solution can help to damp down any noise and enhance the room to boot. Curtains, especially heavy blackout ones, can also stifle any sounds from escaping or invading the area, cost-effectively and without the need for professional soundproofing.
Look for areas in the room where noise can escape or come in; windows, electrical sockets, door frames and light fittings, and seal up the holes or gaps. It is possible to purchase professional acoustic sealants in many DIY outlets that repress the transfer of sound by suppressing it. Acoustic sealants can be slightly more pricey than normal plaster or other sealant products, but the special design has far greater soundproofing performance and is certainly worth the additional cost.
If your room is an empty canvas and you are doing the soundproofing as you decorate or renovate, consider putting up a skin of plasterboard or soundboard, (also called sheet rock, drywall or gyproc). This is a relatively dense type of boarding that is an economic and useful soundproofing material. It's excellent if you are installing a study, movie room or games room in your house in Colne. If you're not experienced in fitting studding and plasterboard, it's better to hire a specialist Colne contractor to guarantee the best soundproofing benefits from its use.
The last solution for do-it-yourself enthusiasts is to look at the doors in your property in Colne. Hollow doors are reasonably cheap but their soundproofing qualities are far from ideal. Solid core doors, whilst a little bit more pricey, can do wonders for sound isolation in a room.
PROFESSIONAL SOUNDPROOFING COLNE
If the level of sound is extreme in your area, because of traffic noise from a busy road nearby, or aircraft passing overhead for example, then more serious methods to deal with the excess noise will need to be investigated. You will obtain the best soundproofing results by using the services of a professional soundproofing specialist.
Be prepared to answer the four following questions during an investigation of your particular soundproofing requirements:
- What's the size of the room or space that has to be soundproofed?
- Where exactly is the primary source of the sound coming from? i.e. Overhead, through the doors, floor, ceiling, walls or windows, or a combination.
- What area needs soundproofing? i.e. Is it a brick walled room, a concrete lined basement, a loft conversion or a plasterboard partition room.
- What are the particular sounds that you need to be soundproofed? i.e. Is it outside noises such as passing trains, neighbours, traffic noise etc, or is it from within your house such as a home cinema or music room.
A certified soundproofing installation company in Colne will take into consideration all these points to provide solutions to your sound issues for various budgets. They'll provide different methods for soundproofing each of the problem areas within your home.
PROFESSIONAL SOUNDPROOFING OF FLOORS, WALLS and CEILINGS
To soundproof any type of room requires 2 key approaches:
- Reduce sound resonating and amplifying.
- Sound absorption needs to be enhanced.
A site survey will be necessary to look at the aspects that need improving.
A specialist will look at the different ways to add mass and density to the areas with problems. The use of acoustic foams and rubbers of varying density and mass will help in absorbing sounds and reduce transmission and reflection sources.
Any noticeable voids in the room may need some form of deadening material to be placed between them to lower sound resonation. If you imagine a drum or wooden cajon, you are looking at a sound amplifying void surrounded by a resonating material; essentially what you may find within ceiling and floor joists, or wall cavities.
Combined layers of materials with different masses and densities work better at absorbing sound than a single layer of one material type. This is due to the fact that the different material densities react in different ways with different frequencies and will provide a much better solution to your soundproofing project.
All soundproofing technicians in Colne have to follow the regulations for domestic properties as laid out in Part E of the Building Regulations. This regulation has the aim of protecting neighbours and other residents in the immediate area from the impacts of sound pollution.
