It's important to realise how sound travels around a structure before it is possible to discover strategies to prevent it from occurring.

Soundproofing Girvan Scotland (KA26)

Sound can travel in a couple of ways:

1. Through the vibration of objects or materials.

2. In open spaces by movement of air.

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


If you take a good look at your area to be soundproofed and notice heating ducts, single glazed windows, gaps around doors and even light fittings and electrical sockets, these are all causes of sound transmission. What we hear as sound is basically the vibration of air molecules reaching our ear drums. All sounds are transferred through the air in the same way; it does not matter if it's children playing, aeroplanes, heavy machinery, road traffic or music playing that creates the sound.

You must therefore visualise a room as a boat and carefully inspect it for leaks before sailing off into the sunset.


If sound moves through the air by vibrations, then it makes perfect sense that those vibrations can be reflected by, absorbed by or transferred to different materials. Sound can be transferred around a building from its source through the vibration of ceilings, floors and walls. Care has to be taken with solid brick or concrete walls, such as a cellar or basement, as sound can be reflected and sometimes even amplified to other parts of your property.

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


If you've got bare floors or floorboards, think about putting down a few rugs or cover with a carpet to help reduce any sound reflections and vibrations. These soft coverings will help to soak up noises but can also add a bit of style to a previously bare room. Curtains, in particular heavy blackout types, can also subdue any sounds from invading or escaping the area, economically and without the need for professional installation.

Finding and plugging any gaps in the rooms, think sockets, windows, doors and light fittings, is also a straightforward task for a capable DIY enthusiast. Plugging the gaps and holes with a professional acoustic sealant that can be purchased in many DIY and building material shops, can make a huge difference to sound transmission in your rooms. Acoustic sealants are inclined to be slightly more pricey than regular plaster or other sealant products, but the special design has far greater soundproofing performance and is worth the additional cost.

If you are luckily enough to be redecorating or renovating while dealing with your soundproofing requirements, then look into the possibility of putting up an extra layer of plasterboard (also referred to as sheet rock, gypsum board or drywall). This is an economic and efficient soundproofing material because of its dense nature. It's superb if you're putting in a cinema room, study or games room in your home in Girvan. If you're not proficient in putting up framing and plasterboard, it's advisable to use a professional Girvan contractor to guarantee the optimum soundproofing benefits from its installation.

The final solution for DIY enthusiasts is to check out the doors within your home in Girvan. Hollow doors are a fairly cheap option but their soundproofing qualities are a far cry from the best. Exchanging hollow core doors for solid core will significantly boost the soundproofing of a room with only a little more cost.


If the level of sound is high in your area, because of aircraft passing overhead, or heavy traffic on a nearby road for instance, then more substantial methods to combat the excess noise may need to be explored. This is when the services of a professional soundproofing service will bring the greatest results.

The initial questions you can expect to be asked are:

  1. Where is the primary source of sound emanating from? i.e. Above, through the ceiling, walls, flooring, doors or windows, or a combination.
  2. What are the particular noises that you need to be soundproofed? i.e. Is it sounds from inside your home such as a music room or family room, or external noises such as overflying aircraft, street noise, noisy neighbours, etc.
  3. What space requires soundproofing? i.e. Is it a concrete lined basement, an attic conversion, a stud partitioned room or a brick walled room.
  4. How large is the room that needs soundproofing?

An experienced soundproofing company in Girvan will consider all of these factors to offer solutions to your sound issues over a range of budgets. Remedies will vary in accordance with the different materials needed for each of the troublesome areas in your property.


2 key strategies are required to soundproof any sort of space:

  1. Update and enhance the amount of sound absorption.
  2. Lessen the effect of sound reflection, amplification and vibration by solid surfaces.

A site survey will be required to examine the aspects that need to be improved.

The team will work out ways of adding materials with different densities and masses to boost the sound absorption capabilities of the room. Soundproofing can be improved by the addition of acoustic rubber and foam which will absorb excess noise and enhance and the sound quality of an area.

Voids between floor joists may require insulation 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 as an amplifying area for unwanted noise.

Soundproofing capabilities are enhanced if multiple layers of different density materials are used, rather than installing only one form of material. This is due to the fact that different frequencies are affected by different kinds of materials, therefore a diversity of shapes, densities and layers within your soundproofing panels are needed for the best results.

Part E of the Building Regulations regulate the soundproofing of residential properties, and will need to be applied by any installation company in Girvan. This set of regulations is a legally binding requirement to protect yourself and neighbours from the negative effects of noise pollution in a setting where folks live and work.

Trade bodies in the soundproofing industry that offer training, qualifications and guidance are the Association of Noise Consultants (ANC) and the Institute of Acoustics (IOA). Only those Girvan firms that have been vetted and accredited by these trade bodies for reliability, professionalism and quality are allowed to bear the logo.

Acoustic Mineral Wool (AMW)

Having a number of different applications for your sound absorption needs, AMW (or acoustic mineral wool) is one of the most useful products on the market for the soundproofing of homes and buildings in Girvan. Designed specifically for installation in the cavity spaces of ceilings, walls and floors, acoustic mineral wool is effective in dampening vibrations, absorbing airborne sound and improving acoustic performance.

Acoustic Mineral Wool Girvan

Commonly available in "slabs" of 1200mm x 600mm, AMW also comes in different thicknesses (25mm, 50mm, 75mm and 100mm). Acoustic mineral wool is frequently made of recycled raw materials (around 20%), is non-combustible and has an inert chemical composition. It won't react with plastics, masonry, brickwork, metal wall ties, or other materials or substances that it comes into close contact with, nor does it encourage the development of fungi, mould or bacteria.

Particularly effective as a sound absorbing filler when installed in the gaps between stud partitions, flooring joists and suspended ceilings, AMW is widely used in the building sector for fire, thermal and acoustic insulation. With regards to separating floors and walls, and in order to abide by The Building Regulations (Part E), AMW can be used together with other sound absorbing products.

Soundproofing Foam Girvan

I recently thought I would take a look at what property owners in Girvan are searching online for in relation to soundproofing, and evidently when looking on Google and Yahoo one of the most commonly types in requests was "soundproofing foam". And from a purely local point of view searches include "soundproofing foam Girvan". Now, this would indicate that a lot of householders are looking for a solution to soundproof their homes, and are hoping that soundproofing foam will do this.

The last thing I wish to do is be a bearer of bad tidings, but if you're assuming that the racket from your noisy next door neighbours in Girvan can be blocked out with soundproofing foam, you're some way off the mark.

Blocking out noise is not the function of the familiar "egg box" shaped foam, which was in fact created for use in music studios and comparable environments, where it can improve the acoustic performance of a room, and reduce echoing, resonation and amplifying. It is not the right product stopping noise from travelling freely around your house, or preventing sound from passing through the wall of a neighbouring property. Rather than blocking it, soundproofing foam actually allows sound to pass through it, because it is in fact porous.

If however, you are creating a music studio, this might be a valuable product for you, and can be purchased in various thicknesses (usually 25mm and 50mm), and in a choice of tile and sheet sizes.

Acoustic Underlay Girvan

An effective way of adding a bit of soundproofing to your Girvan property, without any major disturbance, is to add soundproofing underlay. These are okay for use beneath vinyl planks, engineered wood, laminate or carpet floor coverings, and are designed for both concrete and wooden floors.

When there's an issue with impact noise rather than airborne noise, acoustic underlay is particularly effective. A lot of homeowners in Girvan have a significant issue with impact noise, and this is largely down to the increased popularity of hard floor finishes, which are being more widely used nowadays. Upstairs rooms are the main origin of such issues, with moving furniture, general foot traffic and kids running around being typical concerns.

Don't be deceived by unprincipled carpet stockists, who might attempt to palm you off with standard carpet underlay as a solution to your noise related issues - this sort of product shouldn't be mistaken for genuine soundproofing or acoustic underlay, which is what you really need. If you've got real issues with noise make sure you buy a good quality acoustic underlay.

Although it is a valuable product for impact noise, soundproofing underlay has differing degrees of success when it comes to reducing airborne noise issues such as constant talking, booming televisions and loud music, and some products are definitely superior to others. Talking about the exact kinds of noise you are trying to lower with your supplier or soundproofing expert is vital, and this should help you to choose the best product for your requirements.

Skip Hire Girvan

Your specific soundproofing job may produce hardly any waste, and then again it might result in a lot. If waste removal isn't listed in your job quote, you'll need to organise this yourself, because some tradespeople do not have the facility to do this.

Hiring a skip is the simplest way to dispose of this waste. Skips come in different sizes according to your needs, and picking what kind of skip to order is important.
