Before we can find ways in which to combat sound pollution, it might help if we understand precisely how sound travels.

Soundproofing Cullompton Devon (EX15)

Sound is able to move in only two ways:

1. By vibration of solid materials and objects.

2. By the vibration of air molecules.

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

SOUND TRAVELLING THROUGH THE AIR

Substantial amounts of sound can be transmitted into and out of a room through gaps around doors, single glazed windows, open air-ducting and even electrical sockets and switches. All noise and sound will create the vibration and movement of the air molecules, and it is this that we pick up and hear. No matter what the source of the noise; music playing, aircraft, machinery, traffic or kids playing, all sound is produced and transmitted in exactly the same manner.

If you try and imagine your room as if it were a bucket, and you're trying to identify any leaks which need sealing before you fill it with liquid.

SOUND TRAVEL THROUGH STRUCTURES AND OBJECTS

If sound moves through the air by vibration, then it makes perfect sense that this vibration can be reflected by, absorbed by or transferred to various solid materials. Sound will cause vibrations in the ceilings, walls and floors of your rooms, and may result in a resonation effect that is transferred outside of the area. Even if a room is encased in a dense material that is resistant against sound vibrations, such as a concrete basement, the sound can sometimes be transmitted and perhaps even amplified to other rooms in the property.

But, how can these sound transmitting effects be prevented from causing a problem? The answer is of course, soundproofing!

BASIC SOUNDPROOFING STEPS

A bare floor surface resonates more than one covered with a rug or carpet. Such a simple solution can help to damp down any noises and enhance the room to boot. Wall coverings or window drapes can also be used to improve soundproofing and are simple to install.

Another cost-effective and do-it-yourself resolution is to plug any gaps or holes around sockets, door frames, windows and light fittings. It is possible to purchase professional acoustic sealants in many builders merchants that moderate the transmission of sound by absorbing it. Acoustic sealants can be a little more expensive than standard plaster or other sealant products, but the special design has far greater soundproofing performance and is worth the extra cost.

If your room is an empty canvas and you're doing the soundproofing as you renovate or decorate, think about installing a skin of soundboard or plasterboard, (also known as sheet rock, drywall or gypsum board). This is a fairly dense board that's a perfect and economic soundproofing material. It's excellent if you are setting up a studio, study or home cinema in your house in Cullompton. It's far better to hire a certified Cullompton tradesman to install plasterboard unless you've experience in its application.

Soundproofer Quotes in Cullompton Devon

Last but not least you need to inspect all doors in the area you're looking to soundproof. Although hollow doors are lightweight and fairly inexpensive, their soundproofing characteristics aren't that brilliant. Exchanging hollow doors for solid ones will enhance the soundproofing characteristics of an area with only a little more cost.

Some homes, for example those on aircraft flight-paths or next to busy traffic routes, have naturally more issues with sound pollution and will require other ways to solve the dilemma. The best solution for resolving these issues is to bring in a reliable acoustic and soundproofing company from your local area.

They will ask the four following questions during the initial appraisal of your needs:

  1. From which direction do the sounds appear to be coming from? i.e. Through the flooring, doors, ceiling, walls or windows or a combination of all.
  2. What area needs to be soundproofed? i.e. Is it an attic conversion, a concrete lined basement, a plasterboard partition room or a brick walled room.
  3. How large is the area that you wish to have soundproofed?
  4. Is it external sounds or internal noise that you wish to address? i.e. To lessen traffic, passing trains or noisy neighbours, or is it from internally produced sounds from a home cinema or music studio for instance.

Your answers to these questions will enable you to receive quotations for the different solutions available to suit your requirements. They'll offer different methods for soundproofing each of the main trouble spots within your home.

PROFESSIONAL SOUNDPROOFING OF WALLS, FLOORS and CEILINGS

To soundproof any sort of room requires 2 key approaches:

  1. Reduce sound the amplification and reverberation of sound.
  2. The absorption of sound needs to be enhanced.

Doing this requires a site survey to see which areas need developing from the present state.

Conclusions from the survey will include adding some materials of different densities and masses to help boost the soundproofing characteristics of the area. Soundproofing will be boosted by the application of acoustic rubber and foam which absorbs excess noise and improves and the sound quality of a room.

Voids between floor joists may require insulating to remove resonation gaps between them. Floor and ceiling voids and cavities in walls can all be assimilated with a drum, where the space acts like an amplification source for any undesired sounds.

Combined layers of differing mass and density materials do a better job of absorbing noise than a single soundproofing material layer of one type. This is because the different material densities react in different ways with varying frequencies and will deliver a better resolution to your soundproofing exploits.

All soundproofing providers in Cullompton must follow the legislation for domestic buildings as laid out in Part E of the Building Regulations. These regulations have the objective of protecting other residents in the area from the effects of sound pollution.

The Association of Noise Consultants and the Institute of Acoustics are trade bodies who offer training, qualifications and are representative of the best in contractors and companies which offer soundproofing services.

Soundproofing or Acoustic Underlay Cullompton

If you are experiencing a lot of troublesome noise in your house in Cullompton, an affordable way to reduce this without excessive disruption is by adding some soundproofing or acoustic underlay to your floors. This can be used on concrete or wooden floors and can be installed under laminate, vinyl planks, engineered wood, carpet, and many other flooring types.

Soundproofing underlay is especially effective where there's a lot of impact rather than airborne noise. The more widespread use of hard floor finishes means that impact noise is becoming an ever-increasing issue for homeowners in Cullompton. Rooms upstairs are the main origin of such problems, with shifting furniture, children running around and general footfall being typical concerns.

Don't confuse ordinary carpet underlay with genuine acoustic underlay, because some unprincipled carpet distributors might try to pass off such products, claiming that they are suitable. If you're encountering significant noise issues in your property in Cullompton, contact a respected dealer and purchase a decent soundproofing underlay that is right for your particular situation.

While it is an effective product for impact noise, soundproofing underlay has differing levels of success when it comes to reducing airborne noise problems like deafening music, constant talking and booming televisions, and some products are certainly far better than others. Before picking a product you should chat with the soundproofing specialist or supplier about your specific situation, and identify the specific sorts of noise you are striving to reduce.

Acoustic Mineral Wool (AMW)

Having a number of different applications for your noise reduction requirements, acoustic mineral wool (AMW) is one of the handiest products on the market for the soundproofing of homes and buildings in Cullompton. Acoustic grade mineral wool is designed specifically for installation in the cavity spaces of ceilings, floors and walls, to absorb sound waves, improve acoustic performance and dampen vibration.

Acoustic Mineral Wool Cullompton

AMW commonly comes in 1200mm x 600mm slabs and is widely available in thicknesses of 25mm, 50mm, 75mm and 100mm. Chemically inert and non-flammable, AMW is frequently made with recycled materials. It's rare for bacteria, fungi or mould to be found growing in acoustic mineral wool, and it won't have a reaction with brickwork, metal wall ties, plastics, masonry, or other materials or substances that it comes into close contact with.

When employed as a sound absorbing filler between suspended ceilings, stud partitioning and floor joists, AMW is particularly effective, and it's widely recognised in the construction industry for its fire, acoustic and thermal insulation qualities. To conform to 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.

Soundproofing Foam Cullompton

After performing some basic keyword research, it would seem that one of the most frequent search requests on Google and other search engines is for "soundproofing foam" and for people in Cullompton, perhaps "soundproofing foam Cullompton". Now, that's rather worrying as this would imply that local home owners are turning to acoustic foam products as an answer to their noise problems in Cullompton.

The last thing I want to do is spoil anyone's day, but if you are convinced that the racket from your noisy next door neighbours in Cullompton can be significantly reduced with a product like this, you are on the wrong track.

Stopping the transmission of noise is not the function of the familiar "egg box" shaped foam, which was in fact designed for use in music studios and similar spaces, where it can enhance the sound clarity in a room, and reduce echoing, reverberation and amplifying. This product is not effective for preventing noise from penetrating a wall from a neighbouring property, or even as a buffer to stop sound from travelling around your property and causing annoyance. As it is porous, soundproofing foam actually absorbs sound and lets sound pass through, as opposed to stopping it.

Having said that, if you happen to be working on creating a music room, this product could be helpful for you, and is available in different sheet sizes and various thicknesses (typically 25mm and 50mm).
