It is important to realise how sound is transmitted around a structure before it is possible to identify strategies to stop it from occurring.

Soundproofing Grappenhall Cheshire (WA4)

Basically, sound moves in two ways around a home:

1. Through the vibration of objects or materials.

2. The vibration or air molecules through the air.

As dolphin and whale song shows, sound also travels long distances through water, however unless you wish to soundproof an aquarium or pool we'll look only at the strategies for soundproofing buildings and rooms.

SOUND TRAVELLING THROUGH THE AIR

Sounds can be transmitted into and out of a room through heating ducts, ill fitted windows, gaps around doors and even light fittings and electrical sockets. What we hear and identify as sound is in fact air molucules being vibrated and being picked up by our ear drum. All sounds travel through the air in this same fashion; it does not matter if it's machinery, passing aircraft, children playing, music or traffic that creates the sound.

It is helpful to imagine your room as a boat and inspect it carefully for leaks that require sealing.

SOUND THROUGH OBJECTS AND STRUCTURES

We know that sounds are just the vibration of air reaching the ear, but that vibration is also transferred to solid objects. Sound can be transmitted around a dwelling from its original source via the vibration of walls, ceilings and floors. Even a room made of solid concrete, such as a cellar, can generate a resonance path which transmits any sound waves, and even amplify them, to other rooms in a dwelling.

But, how can these effects be prevented from causing a problem? The solution is not surprisingly, soundproofing!

SIMPLE STEPS IN SOUNDPROOFING

Think about covering a bare floor surface, which resonates and reflects sound, with a carpet or rug. Such a simple solution can spruce up a room and help dampen down any noises to boot. Curtains, and particularly substantial blackout ones, can also repress any noises from invading or escaping the area, economically and without requiring specialist soundproofing.

Track down areas around the rooms where sound can escape or come in; doors, windows, electrical sockets and light fittings, and close off the gaps. You can find professional acoustic sealants in many DIY suppliers which repress the transfer of sound by suppressing the sound waves. Acoustic sealants can be a bit more expensive than regular plaster or other sealant products, but their impressive soundproofing qualities far outweigh the small additional cost.

If you are luckily enough to be redecorating or renovating while dealing with your soundproofing, then think about putting up an additional layer of plasterboard (also called drywall, gyproc or sheet rock). This is a relatively dense type of board which is an economic and useful soundproofing material. If you're fitting a study, cinema room or games room then plasterboard can help to minimise sound pollution for that room, and can be decorated easily after installment. It is best to hire a certified contractor near you to install plasterboard unless you're experienced in this task.

Last but not least you should check out all doors in the space you're looking to soundproof. Hollow doors are fairly cheap but their soundproofing qualities are far from ideal. Changing hollow doors for solid ones will boost the soundproofing capabilities of an area with only a minimal extra cost.

PROFESSIONAL SOUNDPROOFING SOLUTIONS GRAPPENHALL

If the sound levels are excessive in your area, due to traffic noise from a busy road nearby, or aircraft passing overhead for example, then more severe methods to reduce the excess noise will have to be explored. You will obtain the most effective soundproofing outcome by using the expertise of a certified soundproofing specialist.

Soundproofer Near Grappenhall Cheshire

Be prepared to answer the following four questions during a survey of your soundproofing requirements:

  1. Where is the majority of the sound coming from? The windows, doors, walls, ceiling or flooring.
  2. What area needs to be soundproofed? i.e. Is it a plasterboard partition room, a brick walled room, a concrete lined cellar or an attic conversion.
  3. Is it external sounds or internal noise that you want to deal with? i.e. To lessen trains, street noise or next door neighbours, or is it from internally created sounds from a music studio or home cinema for example.
  4. What's the size of the room or space that must be soundproofed?

Your answers to these queries will enable you to get price quotes for the various available solutions that match your circumstances. Remedies might vary in line with the different materials required for each of the problem areas in your property.

PROFESSIONAL SOUNDPROOFING OF CEILINGS, FLOORS and WALLS

There are two key areas that must be addressed to soundproof any space or room:

  1. Improve and maximise the level of sound absorption.
  2. Reduce sound amplifying and resonating.

An on-site survey is going to be needed to assess the areas that need improving.

The specialists will figure out ways to add materials that have different masses and densities to enhance the sound absorption capabilities of the area. Soundproofing will be improved by the installation of acoustic foam, rubber and other materials which absorbs sound waves and enhances and the sound quality of an area.

Voids between joists might need insulation to remove resonation spaces between them. If you think of a drum or wooden cajon, you are looking at a sound amplifying void surrounded by a resonating material; basically what you might find within floor and ceiling joists, or cavities in walls.

Combined layers of materials with different masses and densities do a better job of absorbing noise than a single layer of one material type. This is due to the fact that different frequencies are affected by different types of materials, therefore a range of layers, densities and shapes within your soundproofing armoury are necessary for the best results.

The Building Regulations (Part E) cover the soundproofing of residential properties, and must be adhered to by any installation company in Grappenhall. Part E of the Building Regulations is a requirement in law to protect your neighbours and yourself from the effects of sound pollution in an environment where people work and live.

Look out for contractors showing the logos of the Association of Noise Consultants (ANC) or the Institute of Acoustics (IOA) to make certain you are using a business that's fully qualified and knowledgeable in the soundproofing sector. A reputable soundproofing contractor in Grappenhall will have been subject to a verification procedure for the professionalism and quality of their work to have been accepted as a member of these trade bodies.

Acoustic or Soundproofing Underlay Grappenhall

Putting in a soundproofing underlay is a great way of adding some soundproofing to your Grappenhall home without the need for any unwelcome disruption. These underlays can be successfully used on both timber and concrete floors, and underneath vinyl planks, engineered wood, carpet and laminate floor coverings.

Basically, soundproofing underlay can be a particularly effective solution when your problem is mainly impact noise and not an airborne noise issue. A lot of householders in Grappenhall have a significant problem with impact noise, and this is mostly down to the popularity of the "harder" floor finishes, which are being more widely used right now. Rooms upstairs are the main origin of such issues, with moving furniture, children stomping around and general foot traffic being frequent concerns.

Do not confuse ordinary carpet underlay with authentic soundproofing or acoustic underlay, as some carpet retailers may try to pass off such products, with claims that they are suitable. If you have significant noise issues be sure to purchase a quality acoustic underlay.

Whilst the installation of soundproofing underlay can be extremely effective in lowering impact noise within a dwelling, airborne noise like booming televisions, loud music and shouting, can be a whole different ball game, with some underlays being far better than others and having varying degrees of success. Before choosing an underlay you should speak to the soundproofing expert or supplier about your specific situation, and identify the precise kinds of noise you are endeavouring to reduce.
