First of all it will help if we appreciate precisely how sound moves and can be transmitted before we can identify ways to combat any sound intrusion or escape from your property.

Sound basically travels in two ways around a home:

1. Through objects by the vibration of the material.

2. The vibration or air molecules through the air.

Although sound also travels through water, unless you're eager to reduce noises from an aquarium or pool, we'll just be concerned at how to reduce sound transmission in the rooms of a building.


Any gaps around doors, heating ducts, ill fitting windows and even electrical sockets and light fittings can all affect the transmission of sound into or outside a room. All sounds and noise will initiate movement and vibration of the molecules in the air, and this is what we identify and hear. All sounds are moved through the air in this same way; it does not matter if it's music playing, aircraft, traffic, children playing or machinery that generates the sound.

Any gaps in a room can be viewed as a leak and will have to be plugged.


Sound waves can additionally be transferred to, absorbed by or reflected by solid objects and structures. Sound will cause vibrations in the floors, walls and ceilings of your rooms, and can cause a resonating effect that is transmitted outside of the area. Care has to 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 parts of your home.

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


A bare floor is more resonant than one covered with a rug or carpet. These soft coverings and rugs will help absorb sounds but can also add a touch 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 to bring in a team of professional soundproofing installers.

Locating and plugging any gaps in your room, think windows, door frames, sockets and light fittings, is also a straightforward job for a competent DIY enthusiast. There are some unique acoustic sealants available on the market that suppress the sound waves, and don't transfer them to the surrounding materials. There will be a little difference in price in comparison with a standard sealant, however the soundproofing capabilities are a lot better and can make an enormous difference to a room's soundproofing.

For those of you renovating a property or redecorating a room, look at the soundproofing properties of adding another skin of plasterboard or soundboard, (also called drywall, sheet rock or gypsum board), while you are undertaking this work. This is an efficient and economical soundproofing material owing to its dense nature. If you're putting in a studio, home office or movie room then plasterboard will help reduce sound pollution for that room, and can be decorated easily after installation. It's preferable to hire a reliable Great Missenden tradesman to install plasterboard unless you have some experience in this kind of work.

One final easy soundproofing treatment is to examine the materials your doors are made of. Even though hollow doors are light and comparatively affordable, their soundproofing attributes are not all that brilliant. Solid wood doors, whilst a little more expensive, can do wonders for sound isolation in a room.


Some properties, for instance those next to busy traffic routes or on aircraft flight paths, naturally have more sound pollution issues and will require other ways to resolve the predicament. The best solution for resolving these issues is to contact a reliable soundproofing and acoustic contractor from the local region.

To soundproof any kind of room requires two key strategies:

  1. The absorption of sound needs to be increased.
  2. Reduce the ways that sound is reflected off and transmitted through solid surfaces.

This requires a site survey to determine precisely what areas need improving from the current condition.

A professional will evaluate the different ways to add mass and density to the areas with problems. The use of acoustic foams and rubbers of different density and mass will help in absorbing noise and reduce reflections and transmission sources.

Voids between joists might need insulating to remove the resonating space between them. If you think of a drum or wooden cajon, you are looking at a noise increasing void enclosed within a resonating material; essentially what you may encounter inside floor and ceiling joists, or cavities in walls.

Soundproofing capabilities are improved if different densities and materials are utilised, as opposed to installing only one type of material. This is because the various frequencies are absorbed differently by different materials, therefore a range of layers, densities and shapes within your soundproofing panels are needed.

All soundproofing contractors in Great Missenden need to follow the requirements for domestic buildings as laid out in Part E of the Building Regulations. Part E of the Building Regulations is a requirement in law to protect your neighbours and yourself from being affected by sound pollution in a setting where folks live and work.

Trade organisations in the soundproofing industry that offer training, qualifications and guidance are the Association of Noise Consultants (ANC) and the Institute of Acoustics (IOA).
