Before we are able to discover ways in which to combat sound pollution, it might help if we understand how sound travels and is transmitted.

Soundproofing Costessey Norfolk (NR8)

There basically a couple of ways in which sound can be transmitted around a room:

1. The vibration or air molecules through the air.

2. Through the vibration of objects or materials.

As whale and dolphin songs can show, sound also travels long distances through water, but unless you wish to soundproof a pool or aquarium we'll just look at the techniques of soundproofing structures and rooms.


Any ill fitting windows, open air-ducting, gaps around doors and even electrical sockets and light fittings can all be methods of transmission of sound into or outside a room. What we identify and hear as sound is essentially the vibration of air molecules being picked up by our ear drums. All sounds travel through the air in this same way; it doesn't matter if it's busy traffic, children playing, machinery, passing aircraft or music playing that produces the sound.

If you can imagine your room as if it were a bucket, and you are trying to find any leaks to seal before you fill it up with water.


As sound travels through the air by vibrations, then it makes perfect sense that those vibrations can be absorbed by, reflected by or transferred to various solid materials. The floors, ceilings and walls will all affect how sound moves around a room, and can even transport those vibrations to other rooms in a dwelling. Even in a room that is built from a dense material that's resistant to vibrations, such as a concrete basement, the sound can sometimes be transmitted and even amplified to other areas of the property.

How can we stop these vibrations and sounds from having an adverse effect on other people? Soundproofing is the remedy.


If you've got bare floor surfaces or floorboards, consider laying a few rugs or cover with a carpet to help in reducing any vibrations and sound reflections. Not only will such a simple solution help to reduce your noise problem, it can also spruce up the room. Window drapes and wall coverings can also be employed to enhance soundproofing and are simple to install and maintain.

Locating and plugging any gaps or holes around the room, think doors, electrical sockets, light fittings and windows, is also an easy job for a skilled DIY enthusiast. There are some unique acoustic sealants available to buy that absorb the sound waves, and don't transmit them to surrounding materials. There will be a considerable difference in price when compared to a normal sealant, however the soundproofing capabilities are a lot better and will make a huge difference to a room's soundproofing.

If you are going to be renovating or redecorating while dealing with your soundproofing requirements, then think about installing an extra skin of plasterboard (also known as drywall, gyproc or sheet rock). This is an economic and efficient soundproofing material owing to its dense nature. It's perfect for spaces like studios, home offices or movie rooms being built within your home in Costessey. If you do decide on plasterboard to help with your soundproofing exploits it is advisable to bring in a professional fitter in Costessey, to gain the maximum benefit from its installation.

The last solution for do-it-yourself enthusiasts is to consider the doors within your property in Costessey. Hollow doors are a comparatively cheap option but their soundproofing qualities are a far cry from ideal. Solid wood doors, whilst a tad more pricey, can have a substantial effect on the soundproofing capabilities of a room.


If the level of sound pollution is high in your location, on account of aircraft flying over, or traffic noise from a nearby road for instance, then more substantial methods to reduce the excess noise will have to be explored. This is where the services of a specialist soundproofing installer will bring the most effective results.

The first questions you should be asked are:

  1. What space needs soundproofing? i.e. Is it a concrete lined cellar, a brick walled room, a loft conversion or a stud partitioned room.
  2. What exactly is the size of the area or room that needs to be soundproofed?
  3. What sounds or noise are you trying to suppress? i.e. External factors such as noisy neighbours, road noise, aircraft etc, or internal sounds from a home cinema or music room.
  4. What is the main place where the noise creates the most problems? i.e. Is it emanating up through the flooring, through windows/doors, from the walls or down from above, or is it a mixture of all these things.

With answers to these queries a professional soundproofing specialist in Costessey will work out solutions for your situation, and just as important, your allotted budget. The areas of your room that are causing the biggest issues will each need different remedies.


There are two areas that need to be dealt with to successfully soundproof any room or space:

  1. Reduce the ways that sound is transmitted through and reflected by solid surfaces.
  2. Maximise the absorption of sound.

An on-site survey is going to be necessary to pinpoint the elements that need improving.

A professional soundproofing company will look at the different ways to add density and mass to the troublesome areas. Soundproofing will be boosted by the application of acoustic rubber and foam which absorbs excess noise and improves and a room's sound quality.

Insulation between any voids will be improved to lessen the noise resonation and amplification of these "sound boxes". If you visualise a drum or wooden cajon, you are looking at a sound increasing void enclosed within a resonating material; basically what you may find inside ceiling and floor joists, or cavities in walls.

It is far better to use mixed layers of different density materials to deaden undesired noises than a solitary layer made of one sort of material. This is because different frequencies are affected by different types of materials, therefore a diversity of shapes, densities and layers within your soundproofing panels are needed.

Any soundproofing company in Costessey will have to adhere to the the Building Regulations (Part E), if dealing with a domestic property. Such legislation have to be followed so as to protect yourself and neighbours from the harmful effects of noise pollution.

Keep an eye out for companies showing the logos of the Association of Noise Consultants or the Institute of Acoustics to be certain you are using a business that's fully qualified and knowledgeable in the soundproofing industry. A reputable soundproofing firm in Costessey will have been subject to a vetting procedure for the professionalism and quality of their work to have become a member of these trade associations.

Soundproofing Foam Costessey

I was interested to learn just recently that a popular search term entered on Google and Bing was "soundproofing foam", and for local searches "soundproofing foam Costessey" and "acoustical foam Costessey". That's actually quite worrying, because it suggests that Costessey homeowners are assuming that acoustic foam is a suitable product for solving their noise pollution problems.

It is not my intention to ruin anyone's day, but most soundproofing issues can't be solved with this product, and if your objective is to eliminate the racket caused by noisy next door neighbours in Costessey, you'll have to look someplace else.

The customary "egg box" style foam, that appears to be the hallmark of soundproofing, is not actually designed for stopping the transmission of noise, but has the purpose of reducing echoing and amplifying in music studios and comparable surroundings, where it can also enhance the sound clarity in a room. This product is not good for stopping noise from travelling through a neighbouring wall, or even moving freely around your house and causing annoyance. As opposed to stopping it, acoustic foam actually allows sound to pass through it, because it is in fact porous.

This foam may however be useful for you if you've got a music studio in your home in Costessey, in which instance you will find that it is available in different thicknesses and sheet sizes.

Acoustic Mineral Wool (AMW)

For you noise reduction requirements in Costessey, acoustic mineral wool (AMW) is one of the handiest products on the market for soundproofing homes or other structures, and has a number of applications. When placed in the cavity spaces of ceilings, floors and walls, acoustic grade mineral wool is designed specifically to reduce reverberation, enhance acoustic performance and absorb sound waves.

Acoustic Mineral Wool Costessey

Normally available in slabs of 1200mm x 600mm, acoustic mineral wool also comes in several thicknesses (25 millimetres, 50 millimetres, 75 millimetres and 100 millimetres). Chemically inert and non-flammable, AMW is often made of recycled materials. It doesn't encourage the growth of bacteria, mould or fungi, nor does it react with any materials that it comes into close contact with (i.e. brickwork, plastics, masonry or metal wall ties).

When utilised as a sound absorbing infill between floor joists, suspended ceilings and stud partitions, acoustic mineral wool is especially effective, and it's recognised in the construction industry for its fire, thermal and acoustic insulation properties. To comply with Part E of the Building Regulations when it comes to separating walls and floors, AMW can be used side by side with other soundproofing products.
