First it will help if we learn precisely how sound moves and can be transmitted before we are able to find ways to eliminate any loud noise getting into or out of your property.

Soundproofing Crook County Durham (DL15)

Basically, sound travels in two ways throughout your room:

1. Through objects by the vibration of the material.

2. Through the air by vibration of air molecules.

Although sound also travels through water, unless you are looking to eliminate noise from a pool or aquarium, we'll just be concerned at how to reduce sound levels in the rooms of a structure.

SOUND TRAVELLING THROUGH THE AIR

Significant amounts of sound can be transferred into and out of a room through gaps around doors, ill fitted windows, open air-ducting and even electrical switches and sockets. Any sound vibrates the air molecules and this vibration is what we hear and identify as sound. All sounds are moved through the air in this same way; it does not matter if it's aircraft, heavy machinery, traffic, music playing or children playing that creates the sound.

If you try to visualise your room as a bucket, you are trying to find any leaks which need sealing before you fill it up with liquid.

SOUND THROUGH STRUCTURES AND OBJECTS

We know that sound is just the vibration of air being processed by the ear, but that vibration is also transferred to solid objects. Sound can be transmitted around a property from its source through the vibration of walls, ceilings and floors. Even in a room that is built from a solid material that's resistant to sound, such as a concrete lined cellar, the sound can sometimes be reflected and perhaps even amplified to other areas of the structure.

However, how can these sound generating effects be stopped from creating an issue? The solution is not surprisingly, soundproofing!

SIMPLE STEPS IN SOUNDPROOFING

A bare floor is more resonant than one covered with a carpet or rug. Such a simple and straightforward solution can help to damp down any noises and spruce up the room to boot. Hanging curtains and wall coverings can also suppress sound vibrations and reflections through walls and windows without the need to hire a team of professional soundproofing specialists.

Look for areas in the room where sound can escape or come in; windows, doors, electrical sockets and light fittings, and seal up the gaps or holes. There are some special acoustic sealants available to buy that suppress the sound waves, and don't transfer them to the surrounding materials. There could be a considerable difference in price when compared to a normal sealant, however the soundproofing abilities are a lot better and will make an enormous difference to a room's soundproofing.

If your room is a blank canvas and you're doing the soundproofing while you decorate or renovate, think about installing a skin of soundboard or plasterboard, (also called sheet rock, drywall or gypsum board). Plasterboard is a dense material which is both effective and economical for soundproofing purposes. It is excellent for areas like home cinemas, music studios or studies that are being built within a property. It is far better to hire a reliable contractor near you to put up the plasterboard unless you are experienced in this task.

Soundproofer Quotes in Crook County Durham

Last but not least you need to check out all doors in the area you're looking to soundproof. If you have hollow doors in your rooms you'll find that they can vibrate and will resonate any sound that they experience. Exchanging hollow core doors for solid core will boost the soundproofing characteristics of a room with only a little more cost.

  1. What noise or sounds are you seeking to reduce? i.e. External issues such as traffic noise, passing trains, neighbours playing loud music etc, or internal sounds from a home cinema or teenagers bedroom.
  2. How big is the area that needs soundproofing?
  3. What area requires soundproofing? i.e. Is it a concrete lined basement, an attic conversion, a brick walled room or a plasterboard partition room.
  4. Where is most of the sound emanating from? The floors, doors, walls, ceiling or windows.

An established soundproofing contractor in Crook will take into consideration all of these points to provide solutions to your sound issues over a range of budgets. They will provide different strategies to soundproof each of the trouble spots within your home.

PROFESSIONAL SOUNDPROOFING OF FLOORS, CEILINGS and WALLS

Two key components are needed to soundproof any type of room:

  1. Reduce sound the amplification and resonating of sound.
  2. Maximise sound absorption.

This will require a site survey to see what areas require developing from the current state.

Solutions from the survey will include adding some materials with different masses and densities to help boost the soundproofing attributes of the area. The use of acoustic rubbers and foams of varying density and mass will help in absorbing noise and reduce reflections and transmission sources.

Voids between floor joists might need insulating to eliminate the resonating gap between them. If you visualise these spaces as similar to a drum or wooden cajon then you'll appreciate that by leaving floor or ceiling joist spaces and wall cavities open, you are creating a noise amplifying area.

Mixed layers of materials with different densities and masses work better at absorbing noise than a single layer of one material type. This is due to the fact that different materials react in different ways with varying frequencies and will deliver a better solution to your soundproofing.

All soundproofing installers in Crook must follow the requirements for domestic properties as specified by Part E of the Building Regulations. This set of regulations is a legally binding requirement to protect yourself and neighbours from the effects of noise pollution in a setting where folks work and live.

Soundproofing Foam Crook

It would seem from carrying out some elementary keyword research that a common search on Google is for "soundproofing foam" and for local property owners, "soundproofing foam Crook". That's actually quite interesting, as it indicates that Crook householders are assuming that soundproofing foam products are suitable for fixing their noise pollution issues.

The last thing I wish to do is spoil anyone's day, but if you are thinking that the din from your noisy neighbours in Crook can be reduced with a product like this, you're barking up the wrong tree.

The familiar "egg box" shaped foam, that appears to be the trademark of soundproofing, isn't actually designed for blocking out noise, but is meant for the reduction of echoing and reverberation in music studios and comparable settings, where it can also improve the acoustic performance of a room. This sort of soundproofing foam is not effective in stopping sound from passing through a neighbours wall or preventing noise from moving around your property. As opposed to blocking it, acoustic foam allows sound to pass through it, because it is actually porous.

If however, you are changing some free space into a music studio, this might be a useful product for you to use, and can be found in various thicknesses (usually 25 millimetre and 50 millimetre), and in different tile and sheet sizes.
