It is crucial for us to learn how sound travels and is transmitted around an area before it's possible to identify strategies to stop it from occurring.

Soundproofing Forres Scotland (IV36)

Sound can travel in two different ways:

1. By vibration of solid materials and structures.

2. By the vibration of air molecules.

As whale and dolphin songs can show, sound also penetrates long distance through water, however unless your aim is to soundproof an aquarium or pool we'll look only at the techniques of soundproofing structures and rooms.


Sounds can be transferred out of and into a room through gaps around doors, single glazed windows, heating ducts and even electrical sockets and switches. What we hear as sound is actually the vibration of air molecules reaching our ear drum. All sounds travel through the air in this same way; it matters not if it's children playing, passing aircraft, busy traffic, machinery or music playing that produces the sound.

Any gaps within a room can be regarded as a leak and will need to be plugged.


We now appreciate that sounds are simply the vibrations of air being picked up by the ear, however those vibrations are also transferred to solid objects. Sound can be transferred around a dwelling from its source via the vibration of ceilings, walls and floors. Care must be taken with solid brick or concrete walls, such as a cellar or basement, since sound can be transmitted and sometimes even amplified to other areas of your house.

How should we stop these vibrations and sounds affecting other folks? Soundproofing is the remedy.


If you have bare floorboards or floors, consider putting down a few rugs or cover with a carpet to help in reducing any vibrations and sound reflections. Not only can such a simple solution help reduce your problem with noise, but it can also spruce up the room. Window drapes and wall coverings can also be used to enhance soundproofing and are easy to install and maintain.

Search for areas around the room where noise can come in or escape from; windows, sockets, doors and light fittings, and seal the gaps or holes. There are unique acoustic sealants available on the market which absorb the sound waves, and do not transfer them to the surrounding materials. There may be a considerable difference in price when compared with a normal sealant, however the soundproofing capabilities are much better and will make an enormous difference to a room.

If you are fortunate enough to be redecorating or renovating while considering your soundproofing requirements, then look at installing an additional layer of plasterboard (also referred to as drywall, sheet rock or gyproc). Plasterboard is a fairly dense material that's both economical and efficient for soundproofing purposes. If you're putting in a games room, study or home cinema then plasterboard can help reduce sound transmission to and from that room, and can be easily decorated after completion. It is advisable to hire a reliable contractor near you to put up the plasterboard unless you have experience in its application.

Voids between joists might require insulation to remove resonation gaps between them. Wall cavities or flooring and ceiling voids can all be likened to a drum, where the space acts as an amplifying area for any unwanted sounds.

It's better to use combined layers of different density materials to absorb undesirable noises than a solitary layer made of one soundproofing material. This is due to the fact that different frequencies are affected by different materials, therefore a variety of densities, shapes and layers within your soundproofing panels are needed.

Soundproofing Foam Forres

I was fascinated to discover quite recently that one of the most commonplace soundproofing search phrases typed into Google and Yahoo was "soundproofing foam", and for local searches "soundproofing foam Forres" and "acoustical foam Forres". Now, that is rather concerning because this would indicate that local homeowners are looking to soundproofing foam products as a solution to their noise problems in Forres.

I don't wish to rain on your parade, but soundproofing foam is not the answer to most noise pollution problems, and is most certainly not effective if you are aiming to eliminate the din from your noisy neighbours in Forres.

The "egg box" shaped foam which you regularly see being sold in tile or sheet form isn't actually meant for blocking out noise, but was really developed for use in music studios and similar environments, to reduce amplifying and echoing and improve the acoustic performance of a room. This type of product isn't effective for preventing noise from travelling through a neighbouring wall, or even moving freely around your house and causing a nuisance. Since soundproofing foam is porous and spongy, it actually allows sound to pass through it, and hasn't got the consistency to stop it.

This foam product might however be useful for you if you've got a music studio in your house in Forres, in which instance you will discover that it can be bought in different thicknesses and tile sizes.

Acoustic or Soundproofing Underlay Forres

If you'd like to lower the noise you experience in your property in Forres without causing excessive disruption, why not think about installing some soundproofing underlay on your floors Both wood and concrete floors are suitable surfaces for these acoustic underlays, and they can be installed beneath vinyl planks, carpet, laminate and engineered wood.

When your problem is primarily impact noise and not airborne noise, acoustic underlay is a particularly beneficial remedy. In recent times, a rise in the popularity of "harder" floor finishes has triggered more complaints about impact noise in many Forres properties. The form of noise issues we're talking about here is kids running around, moving furniture and general footfall, especially from upstairs rooms.

Don't be drawn in by unprincipled carpet retailers, who may try to sell you standard carpet underlay as a solution to your noise issues - this sort of product should never be confused with genuine soundproofing underlay, which is what you really need. If the noise issues you are experiencing are severe, be sure to purchase a quality acoustic underlay from a respectable supplier.

Even though soundproofing underlay is an effective product for reducing impact noise, some are better than others when it comes to airborne noise issues such as deafening music, booming TV's and shouting. Before picking an underlay you should speak to the soundproofing expert or supplier about your specific situation, and discuss the specific sorts of noise you're striving to reduce.
