It is crucial for us to understand how sound travels around a building before it is possible to identify techniques to prevent it from happening.

Soundproofing Eaglescliffe County Durham (TS16)

Sound is able to travel in a couple of ways:

1. By vibration of solid materials and structures.

2. The vibration or air molecules through the air.

As whale and dolphin song demonstrates, sound also travels through water, but unless you wish to soundproof a swimming pool or aquarium we'll look only at the techniques of soundproofing structures and rooms.

SOUND TRAVEL THROUGH THE AIR

Any gaps around doors, ill fitted windows, open ducting and even electrical sockets and light fittings can all be responsible for the transmission of sound into or outside a room. All sounds and noise will initiate the vibration and movement of the molecules in the air, and it is this that we pick up and hear. It does not matter if it's busy traffic, heavy machinery, aeroplanes, music or children playing, they all produce and transmit sound in the same manner.

If you can think of your room as a bucket, you're trying to identify any leaks that need sealing before you can fill it with liquid.

SOUND THROUGH STRUCTURES AND OBJECTS

If sound travels through the air by vibrations, then it stands to reason that those vibrations can be reflected by, absorbed by or transferred to various solid materials. Sound will vibrate the walls, floors and ceilings of your rooms, and can cause a resonation effect which is transferred outside of the room itself. Even a room made of solid concrete, such as a cellar, can create a resonance path which channels any sound waves, and sometimes amplify them, to other areas of a property.

How do we stop this resonation affecting other people? Soundproofing obviously.

BASIC SOUNDPROOFING STEPS

Think about covering a bare floor, which reflects and resonates sound, with a rug or carpet. The rugs or other soft coverings will help to soak up noises and can also add a bit of style to a previously bare room. Hanging curtains and wall coverings can also prevent sound reflections and vibrations through windows and walls without the need for a team of professional soundproofing installers.

Track down areas around the rooms where noise can escape or come in; electrical sockets, door frames, light fittings and windows, and seal up any gaps. There are some unique acoustic sealants available to buy that absorb the sound waves, and don't transmit them to the surrounding materials. Acoustic sealants are inclined to be a little more expensive than regular plaster or other sealant products, but their remarkable soundproofing qualities far outweigh the small additional cost.

If you're luckily enough to be renovating or redecorating while tackling your soundproofing, then think about putting up an additional skin of plasterboard (also known as gyproc, drywall or sheet rock). This is a relatively dense type of board that's an economic and useful soundproofing material. It is great for spaces like music studios, studies or home cinemas being built within your house in Eaglescliffe. If you do decide on plasterboard to aid your soundproofing it is a good idea to hire a professional fitter in Eaglescliffe, to get the maximum effect from its installment.

Soundproofer Quotes in Eaglescliffe County Durham

Last but not least you need to check all doors in the room that you're soundproofing. Whilst hollow doors are lightweight and comparatively cheap, their soundproofing qualities are not that brilliant. Switching hollow core doors for solid core will considerably enhance the soundproofing of a room with only a small extra cost.

If the sound levels are excessive in your location, due to aircraft flying over, or heavy traffic on a nearby road for instance, then more substantial ways to reduce the excess noise may need to be explored. You will obtain the best possible soundproofing results by using the expertise of an established soundproofing company.

Soundproofer Near Eaglescliffe County Durham

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

  1. Where is most of the noise pollution coming from? The ceiling, windows, flooring, walls or doors.
  2. What noise or sounds are you looking to suppress? i.e. External things such as road noise, trains, next door neighbours etc, or internal sounds from a family room or music studio.
  3. What's the size of the space or room that needs to be soundproofed?
  4. What kind of room or property would you like to soundproof? Does it have a lined concrete wall, a stud partition wall or a brick wall etc.

A professional soundproofing company in Eaglescliffe will look into all of these aspects to provide solutions to your noise issues over a range of budgets. Remedies will vary in accordance with the different materials required for each of the trouble spots within your home.

PROFESSIONAL SOUNDPROOFING OF CEILINGS, WALLS and FLOORS

There are 2 areas that must be dealt with to soundproof any space or room:

  1. Update and increase the level of sound absorption.
  2. Reduce sound amplifying and reverberation.

To effectively analyse the soundproofing areas that need improvement, a site survey needs to be performed by a local soundproofing company.

Solutions identified by the survey will include adding some materials of different masses and densities to help improve the soundproofing qualities of the room. The addition of acoustic rubbers and foams of varying density and mass will help to absorb sounds and reduce transmission and reflection sources.

Voids between joists might require insulation to eliminate resonation spaces between them. If you think of a drum or wooden cajon, you're looking at a sound amplifying void surrounded by a resonating material; basically what you may find within floor and ceiling joists, or wall cavities.

It is far better to use combined layers of different density materials to deaden unwanted sounds than a single layer fabricated from one material. The various materials will eliminate different frequencies of sound and deliver a more harmonious auditory experience and feeling to a room.

All soundproofing firms in Eaglescliffe will be needing to follow the legislation for residential buildings as specified by Part E of the Building Regulations. Such legislation must be observed in order to safeguard yourself and others from the harmful effects of noise pollution.

The Institute of Acoustics (IOA) and the Association of Noise Consultants (ANC) are recognised trade associations who provide training, qualifications and represent the best in contractors and companies which offer soundproofing services. Only those Eaglescliffe businesses that have been vetted and authorised by these associations for professionalism, reliability and quality are allowed to display the logo.

Acoustic or Soundproofing Underlay Eaglescliffe

An excellent way of adding some extra soundproofing to your property in Eaglescliffe, without any serious disturbance, is to add acoustic or soundproofing underlay. This is designed for use on wood or concrete floors and can be used underneath vinyl planks, carpet, laminate, engineered wood, and many other flooring types.

When your issue is not so much airborne noise but mainly impact noise, acoustic underlay is a particularly beneficial solution. Impact noise has become a significant issue for Eaglescliffe householders these days, with an increase in hard floor finishes. Upstairs rooms are the main source of such problems, with shifting furniture, general footfall and children running around being typical kinds of troublesome noise.

Don't confuse regular carpet underlay with authentic acoustic or soundproofing underlay, since some unscrupulous carpet distributors may try to pass off such products, with claims that they're suitable. If you're encountering severe noise problems in your home in Eaglescliffe, visit a respected supplier and purchase a good quality acoustic underlay that's appropriate for your specific situation.

While impact noise can be substantially lowered with the help of acoustic underlays, they have differing degrees of success when it comes to deafening music, blaring TV's and constant talking, and other airborne noise problems. Talking about the precise types of noise you are attempting to reduce with your supplier or soundproofing expert is important, and this should help you to purchase the correct product for your needs.

Soundproofing Foam Eaglescliffe

Just recently I thought I would take a look at what home and business owners in Eaglescliffe are searching online for with regards to soundproofing, and it appears that when searching on Google and other search engines one of the most frequent requests was "soundproofing foam". And from a purely local point of view searches include things like "soundproofing foam Eaglescliffe". Now, this suggests that lots of people are searching for a solution to soundproof their homes in Eaglescliffe, and are hoping that soundproofing foam will accomplish this.

I don't want to spoil your day, but soundproofing foam isn't really the answer to most noise related problems, and is most certainly not effective if you are looking to eliminate the din from your noisy neighbours in Eaglescliffe.

The foam in the form of an "egg box" which you regularly see for sale in tile or sheet form isn't actually meant for blocking out noise, but was really developed for use in music studios and similar situations, to reduce echoing and amplifying and enhance the sound clarity in a room. This product is not effective in stopping noise from travelling through a neighbours wall, or even moving freely around your home and causing a nuisance. Since acoustic foam is porous and spongy, it actually lets sound pass right through it, and doesn't have the density to inhibit it.

It may be that you're actually creating a music room in your house in Eaglescliffe, in which instance this foam could be extremely useful for you. (Tags: Soundproofing Foam Eaglescliffe, Soundproof Foam Eaglescliffe, Acoustic Foam Eaglescliffe, Music Room Soundproofing Eaglescliffe).

Acoustic Mineral Wool

AMW (or acoustic mineral wool) is one of the most versatile products on the market for soundproofing properties in Eaglescliffe and has various applications for your noise reduction needs. Acoustic grade mineral wool is designed specifically for installation in the cavity spaces of floors, walls and ceilings, to reduce reverberation, enhance acoustic performance and absorb airborne sound.

Acoustic Mineral Wool Eaglescliffe

Widely available in thicknesses of 25 millimetres, 50 millimetres, 75 millimetres and 100 millimetres, AMW generally comes in 600mm x 1200mm "slabs". Made partly from recycled materials, acoustic mineral wool is chemically inert, and is non-flammable. It will not react with any materials or substances that it comes into close contact with (i.e. plastics, metal wall ties, brickwork, masonry), and doesn't encourage the development of mould, fungi or bacteria.

Recognised in the construction sector for its thermal, acoustic and fire insulation properties, AMW is especially effective as a sound absorption infill when used between stud partitions, suspended ceilings and flooring joists. To conform to the Building Regulations (Part E) with regards to separating walls and floors, acoustic mineral wool can be used together with other soundproofing materials.
