Soundproofer Coppull Lancashire (PR7): If you are anxious about the level of noise that's infiltrating your Coppull property, be it in a studio, bedroom, home office or lounge, you need to think about installing some soundproofing. You could also be concerned about any noise from a family room or home cinema room seeping out and disturbing others. Either way, soundproofing is important for peace of mind.
First of all it would be a good idea to understand just how sound travels before we can identify ways to combat any excessive noise intruding into or escaping from your home.
Sound basically travels in two ways around a room:
1. The vibration or air molecules through the air.
2. Around and within a solid object by reflection and vibration.
Sound can also be transmitted through water, but unless you are looking at soundproofing an aquarium or swimming pool we will simply focus on its isolation through materials and air.
SOUND TRAVELLING THROUGH THE AIR
If you take a good look at the room or area to be soundproofed and detect heating ducts, gaps around doors, ill fitted windows and even electrical sockets and switches, these are all aspects that can cause the transmission of sound. All sounds and noise will initiate the vibration and movement of the molecules in the air, and this is what we hear. Irrespective of the source of the noise; passing aircraft, machinery, children playing, music or road traffic, all sound is created and transmitted in exactly the same way.
If you try and think of your room as if it were a bucket, you're attempting to find any leaks which need sealing before you fill it with liquid.
SOUND THROUGH OBJECTS AND STRUCTURES
Sound waves can also be absorbed by, reflected by or transferred to solid objects and structures. Sound will cause vibrations in the ceilings, floors and walls of your rooms, and may lead to a resonation effect that is transferred outside of the room itself. Even if a room is encased in a solid material which is proofed against sound vibrations, such as a concrete cellar, the sound can sometimes be transmitted and maybe even amplified to other rooms in the building.
So, what is the easiest way to stop this resonation from affecting other people? Soundproofing obviously.
BASIC SOUNDPROOFING STEPS
A bare floor resonates more than one covered with a rug or carpet. The rugs or other soft coverings will help to absorb noises but can also add a bit of elegance to an otherwise bare room. Hanging wall coverings and curtains can also suppress sound reflections and vibrations through windows and walls without the need to hire a professional team of soundproofers.
Finding and sealing any gaps in the room, think sockets, doors, light fittings and windows, is also a simple job for a skilled DIY enthusiast. It is possible to purchase specialist acoustic sealants in many DIY stores that repress the transmission of sound by absorbing it. Acoustic sealants can be a bit more expensive than normal sealant products, however the special design has far greater soundproofing performance and is certainly worth the additional cost.
If the room you are working on is an empty canvas and you are soundproofing while you renovate or decorate, consider installing another skin of soundboard or plasterboard, (also called sheet rock, drywall or gypsum board). This is a relatively dense type of board that's a perfect and economic soundproofing material. It is great for areas like movie rooms, studios or home offices which are being built within the home. It is preferable to hire a specialist Coppull tradesman to fit the plasterboard unless you are experienced in this task.
The final DIY solution is to check out the doors within your home in Coppull. Hollow doors are reasonably cheap but their soundproofing qualities are a far cry from the best. Solid core doors, while a little bit more expensive, can do wonders for improving the soundproofing qualities of a room.
PROFESSIONAL SOUNDPROOFING SOLUTIONS COPPULL
If you happen to live in a high noise pollution area, such as next to a busy road or near an airport, you will have to be more imaginative in your attempts to enhance the soundproofing qualities of your property. The best solution for resolving these issues is to call in a specialist soundproofing and acoustic contractor from your local area.
They will ask the four following questions during the initial evaluation of your needs:
- What are the dimensions of the room or space that needs to be soundproofed?
- What room needs soundproofing? i.e. Is it an attic conversion, a concrete lined cellar, a brick walled room or a stud partitioned room.
- What noise or sounds are you seeking to reduce? i.e. External issues like neighbours, traffic noise, trains etc, or sounds within your house from a home cinema or music studio.
- What is the main area where the sound causes the most problems? i.e. Is it coming up through the flooring, through doors, down from overhead or from the walls, or is it a mix of all these factors.
Your answers to these queries will allow you to get price quotes for the different solutions available that match your requirements. There'll be distinct solutions for each of the key areas the room you want to soundproof.
PROFESSIONAL SOUNDPROOFING OF CEILINGS, WALLS and FLOORS
There are two key areas that need to be dealt with to soundproof any space:
- The absorption of sound will have to be improved.
- Lessen the effect of sound amplification, vibration and reflection by solid surfaces.
Doing this requires an on-site survey to find out which areas require developing from the present state.
Conclusions from the survey will probably include adding some materials with different densities to help improve the soundproofing capabilities of the area. The addition of acoustic rubbers and foams of different mass and density will help in absorbing noise and reduce transmission and reflection sources.
Any noticeable voids in the room might require some sort of muffling material to be placed between them to lessen noise resonation. If you visualise these spaces as similar to a drum or wooden cajon then you'll see that by leaving wall cavities and floor or ceiling joist spaces empty, you're effectively creating a noise amplifying area.
Soundproofing abilities are maximised if different densities and materials are utilised, rather than installing only one kind of material. The diverse materials will reduce different frequencies of sound and deliver a more balanced feeling and auditory experience to a room.
Any soundproofing contractor in Coppull will need to conform to the Part E of the Building Regulations, if dealing with a domestic property. Such regulations have to be observed so as to protect yourself and neighbours from the harmful effects of sound pollution.
Keep an eye out for companies displaying the logos of the Institute of Acoustics (IOA) or the Association of Noise Consultants (ANC) to guarantee that you're dealing with a business that is knowledgable and fully qualified in the soundproofing sector. A reliable soundproofing contractor in Coppull will have been subject to a verification procedure for the professionalism and quality of their workmanship to have become a member of these trade organisations.

Soundproofing or Acoustic Underlay Coppull
One of the least troublesome methods of adding some extra soundproofing to your Coppull property is through the installation of soundproofing or acoustic underlayment. These acoustic underlays can be successfully used on both concrete and wood floors, and beneath laminate, engineered wood, carpet and vinyl planks floor coverings.
Acoustic underlay is particularly beneficial where there is an issue with impact rather than airborne noise. Recent increases in the popularity of "hard" floor finishes in Coppull homes, means issues with impact noise are becoming ever more commonplace. The sort of noise issues we're talking about here is shifting furniture, children running around and general footfall, particularly from upstairs rooms.
You shouldn't confuse acoustic underlay with normal carpet underlay, although some unprincipled carpet retailers might attempt to palm you off with this claiming it has decent soundproofing benefits. Make sure that you invest in a quality soundproofing underlay, if you have real problems with noise.
While impact noise can be significantly lowered through the use of acoustic underlay, it has differing degrees of success with regards to blaring TV's, loud music and shouting, and other airborne noise problems. Before purchasing a product you should chat with the supplier or soundproofing specialist about your particular situation, and identify the exact kinds of noise you are wanting to reduce.

Acoustic Mineral Wool
For you sound absorption needs in Coppull, AMW (or acoustic mineral wool) is one of the handiest products available for the soundproofing of homes or other buildings, and has various applications. Acoustic grade mineral wool is specifically designed to be installed in the cavity spaces of floors, ceilings and walls, to improve acoustic performance, absorb airborne sound and dampen vibrations.
Typically available in "slabs" of 600mm x 1200mm, acoustic mineral wool also comes in different thicknesses (25mm, 50mm, 75mm and 100mm). Made partly from recycled materials, AMW is chemically inert, and is non-combustible. It won't encourage the development of fungi, mould or bacteria, nor does it react with any materials that it comes into close contact with (i.e. brickwork, masonry, metal wall ties or plastics).
Widely used in the building industry for its fire, thermal and acoustic insulation properties, acoustic mineral wool is particularly effective as a sound absorption filler when installed in the gaps between flooring joists, suspended ceilings and stud partitions. In relation to separating walls and floors, and in order to conform to The Building Regulations (Part E), AMW can be used side by side with other soundproofing materials.
Soundproofing Foam Coppull
I was intrigued to learn recently that a common search phrase typed into Google and Yahoo was "soundproofing foam", and for local searches "acoustical foam Coppull" and "soundproofing foam Coppull". This is somewhat puzzling, because it would suggest a lack of understanding by local householders who seem to be under the impression that their noise problems can be sorted out through the use of acoustic foam.
It isn't my intention to ruin your day, but most noise related issues cannot be solved with acoustic foam, and if you are aiming to reduce the racket caused by noisy neighbours in Coppull, you'll have to look for something better.
The "egg box" shaped foam which you frequently see being sold in sheet or tile form is not really meant for stopping the transmission of noise, but was really developed for use in music studios and similar settings, to reduce echoing and reverberation and enhance the sound clarity in a room. Soundproofing foam like this is not good for preventing sound from moving around your house, or stopping noise from passing through a neighbouring wall. Because it is porous, soundproofing foam actually absorbs sound and permits sound to pass through, rather than blocking it.
This foam may however be extremely useful for you if you've got a music studio in your house in Coppull, and if this is the case you will find that it can be bought in various thicknesses and tile sizes.
