It's important to realise how sound travels and is transmitted around a structure before it is possible to identify solutions to prevent it from happening.

Soundproofing Eckington Derbyshire (S21)

There are only a couple of ways in which sound can be transmitted around a home:

1. Through objects by the vibration of the material.

2. Through the air by vibration of air molecules.

Sound is also transmitted through water, however unless you are planning to soundproof a swimming pool or aquarium we'll only deal with its isolation through air and materials.


Any single glazed windows, gaps around doors, open ducting and even electrical sockets and light fittings can all affect the transmission of sound outside or into a room. Any noise vibrates the molecules in the air and this vibration is what we hear and identify as sound. All sounds travel through the air in the same fashion; it doesn't matter if it's aeroplanes, busy traffic, children playing, music or machinery that produces the sound.

It is helpful to think of a room as a boat and inspect it carefully for leaks that need to be plugged before you can dare to sail it.


Sound waves can also be absorbed by, transferred to or reflected by solid materials and structures. Sound can be transmitted around a dwelling from its source through the vibration of ceilings, floors and walls. Care has to be taken with brick or solid concrete walls, such as in cellars or basements, as sound can be transmitted and sometimes even amplified to other areas of your property.

How should we prevent these vibrations and sounds affecting other folks? Soundproofing is the solution.


If you have bare floors or floorboards, think about covering them with carpet or putting down a few rugs to help reduce any vibrations and sound reflections. These soft coverings and rugs will help to soak up sounds but can also add a bit of elegance to an otherwise bare room. Hanging wall coverings and curtains can also damp down sound vibrations and reflections through walls and windows without the need to hire a professional team of soundproofers.

Track down areas in your room where noise can come in or escape from; light fittings, windows, doors and sockets, and seal the holes or gaps. You can find professional acoustic sealants in some building supply stores which repress the transfer of sound by absorbing the sound waves. They might be a little more expensive than normal plaster or sealants, but are worth every penny for their soundproofing qualities.

For anybody renovating a property or redecorating a room, consider the soundproofing benefits of adding an extra skin of soundboard or plasterboard, (also known as sheet rock, gyproc or drywall), while you are carrying out the project. This is a fairly dense type of board which is a perfect and economic soundproofing material. It's terrific for areas like studios, movie rooms or home offices that are being built within the home. If you are not proficient in fitting framing and plasterboard, it is wise to use a professional team to guarantee the optimal soundproofing gains from its use.

The last solution for DIY enthusiasts is to look at the doors within your home in Eckington. Hollow doors are comparatively cheap although their soundproofing capabilities are far from ideal. Solid doors, while a bit more pricey, can do wonders for improving the soundproofing qualities of a room.


If the sound pollution is excessive in your location, due to aircraft flying over, or heavy traffic on a nearby road for example, then more substantial methods to reduce the excess noise may need to be investigated. You will obtain the best possible soundproofing results by hiring the services of a professional soundproofing specialist.

Soundproofer Near Eckington Derbyshire

The first questions you can expect to be asked are:

  1. Is it external noise or internal sounds that you want to tackle? i.e. To stop road noise, aircraft or next door neighbours, or is it from internally produced sounds from a family room or music studio for example.
  2. What is the space you want to soundproof constructed from? (i.e. a brick wall, a stud partition wall or a fully lined concrete wall).
  3. How large is the room that needs soundproofing?
  4. Where is the majority of the sound coming from? The windows, doors, walls, floor or ceiling.

Your answers to these queries will enable you to receive quotations for the different solutions available that match your situation. They'll offer you different strategies to soundproof each of the trouble spots within your home.


Two key strategies are required to soundproof any size of room or space:

  1. Minimise sound reverberation and amplifying.
  2. Improve sound absorption.

An on-site survey is going to be required to look at the elements that need to be improved.

A professional will evaluate the different ways to add density and mass to the trouble spots. This additional mass will help to enhance the absorption of sound through the use of acoustic foam or rubber to gain the maximum impact of noise reduction.

Voids between joists might need insulation to remove the resonating space between them. If you visualise such spaces like a drum or wooden cajon then you will see that by leaving floor or ceiling joist spaces and wall cavities empty, you're effectively creating a noise amplifying area.

It is best to use mixed layers of different density materials to absorb undesired sounds than a single layer fabricated from one kind of soundproofing material. The different materials will eliminate different frequencies of noise and provide a more rounded auditory experience and feeling to a room.

The Building Regulations (Part E) deal with the soundproofing of residential properties, and will have to be observed by any soundproofing specialist in Eckington. These regulations should be followed so as to protect yourself and neighbours from being negatively impacted by noise pollution.

The Association of Noise Consultants (ANC) and the Institute of Acoustics (IOA) are trade associations who provide qualifications and training, and are representative of the very best in companies and contractors which offer soundproofing services.

Soundproofing Foam Eckington

I was intrigued to discover recently that one of the most commonplace soundproofing search phrases entered on Google and Bing was "soundproofing foam", and for local searches "soundproofing foam Eckington" and "acoustic foam Eckington". That's actually quite interesting, because it would suggest that Eckington householders are assuming that acoustic foam is a suitable product for fixing their noise issues.

The last thing I am looking to do is rain on your parade, but if you're assuming that the racket from your noisy next door neighbours in Eckington can be significantly reduced with a product like this, then you're barking up the wrong tree.

The "egg box" shaped foam that you often see for sale in tile or sheet 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 amplifying and echoing and enhance the sound clarity in a room. It's not the right product preventing sound from travelling freely around your house, or stopping noise from penetrating the wall of a neighbouring building. Seeing as it is porous, soundproofing foam absorbs sound and lets sound pass through it, as opposed to blocking it.

It might be that you actually have a music room in your house in Eckington, in which instance this product could be handy for you. (Tags: Acoustic Foam Eckington, Acoustical Foam Eckington, Soundproof Foam Eckington, Soundproofing Foam Eckington).

Acoustic Underlay Eckington

An effective way of adding a bit of soundproofing to your Eckington home, without any serious disturbance, is to install soundproofing underlay. These are okay for use under engineered wood, vinyl planks, laminate or carpet floor coverings, and are suitable for both concrete and timber floors.

Where there are issues with impact noise as opposed to airborne noise, soundproofing underlay is particularly effective. Many homes in Eckington tend to have a huge problem with impact noise, and this is largely attributable to the increased popularity of the "harder" floor finishes, which are being used more widely these days. Rooms upstairs are the main source of such problems, with general foot traffic, moving furniture and kids running around being frequent concerns.

Although some carpet stockists might try to sell you regular carpet underlay, claiming that it has decent soundproofing attributes, this shouldn't be mistaken for genuine soundproofing underlay. If you're experiencing significant noise issues in your property in Eckington, contact a legitimate vendor and purchase a quality soundproofing underlay that is appropriate for your particular situation.

Even though impact noise can be substantially lowered through the use of acoustic underlay, it's got varying levels of success with regards to deafening music, incessant talking and booming TV's, and other airborne noise problems. Consequently, when deciding on an underlay product it is vital to understand the specific types of noise you're endeavouring to minimise, and chat about this with your soundproofing specialist or supplier in advance.
