First of all we need to discover exactly how sound moves and can be transmitted before we are able to identify ways to reduce any excessive noise escaping from or intruding into your property.

Soundproofing Great Sankey Cheshire (WA5)

Sound is able to travel in a couple of ways:

1. Through objects by the vibration of the material.

2. In open spaces by movement of air.

As whale and dolphin song shows, sound also travels long distances through water, but unless your aim is to soundproof an aquarium or pool we will look only at the techniques of soundproofing rooms and buildings.


Any open air-ducting, gaps around doors, single glazed windows and even electrical sockets and switches can all be responsible for the transmission of sound outside or into a room. What we hear as sound is actually the vibration of air molecules reaching our ear drums. No matter the source of the noise; music playing, road traffic, machinery, children playing or aeroplanes, all sound is generated and transmitted in exactly the same fashion.

Any gaps within a room can be looked at as a leak and will have to be blocked.


If sound travels through the air by vibrations, then it isn't surprising that those vibrations can be reflected by, absorbed by or transferred to different solid materials. Sound will cause vibrations in the floors, ceilings and walls of your rooms, and can lead to a resonation effect that's transferred outside of the area. Even a room made from solid concrete, such as a basement, can create a path of resonance which channels sound waves, and even amplify them, to other parts of a property.

How do we stop these sounds affecting others? Soundproofing of course.


Think about covering bare floors, which reflect and resonate sound, with a rug or carpet. Not only will such a simple solution help reduce your problem with noise, it can also perk up the room. Wall coverings or window drapes can also be used to enhance soundproofing and are simple to fit and maintain.

Look for areas in your room where noise can escape or come in; light fittings, doors, electrical sockets and windows, and seal the holes or gaps. Plugging the gaps and holes with a professional acoustic sealant that can be purchased in some DIY and building material shops, can make a big difference to sound transmission in a room. They are a tad more pricey than regular sealants or plaster, but are very useful for their soundproofing efficiency.

If your room is an empty canvas and you're doing the soundproofing as you decorate or renovate, consider installing a skin of soundboard or plasterboard, (also known as sheet rock, gyproc or drywall). Plasterboard is a fairly dense material that is both economical and efficient for soundproofing purposes. It's superb if you're setting up a games room, study or home cinema in your property in Great Sankey. It's preferable to hire a specialist contractor near you to put up the plasterboard unless you've got some experience in this sort of work.

The final solution for DIY enthusiasts is to check out the doors in your property in Great Sankey. Even though hollow doors are lightweight and relatively cheap, their soundproofing capabilities aren't that brilliant. If you're able to change to solid core doors you will find it boosts your soundproofing more cheaply than some other solutions.


If the level of sound pollution is excessive in your location, because of heavy traffic on a busy road nearby, or aircraft passing overhead for instance, then more substantial ways to combat the excess noise may have to be investigated. This is where the services of an established soundproofing installer will bring the greatest results.

Be prepared to answer the following four questions during an investigation of your specific soundproofing requirements:

  1. How large is the room you need to be soundproofed?
  2. Where is the main source of noise emanating from? i.e. Above, through the doors, flooring, windows, walls or ceiling, or a combination.
  3. What noise or sounds are you attempting to reduce? i.e. External things such as street noise, passing trains, neighbours playing loud music etc, or sounds within your house from a home cinema or music studio.
  4. What is the space you want to soundproof made from? (i.e. a plasterboarded partition wall, a fully lined concrete wall or a brick wall).

An experienced soundproofing company in Great Sankey will take into consideration all of these aspects to provide remedies for your sound issues for various budgets. They will offer different methods to soundproof each of the trouble spots within your home.


To soundproof any kind of room requires 2 key approaches:

  1. Reduce the ways that sound is transmitted through and reflected by hard surfaces.
  2. Improve and maximise the amount of sound absorption.

To precisely analyse the elements that need to be improved, an on-site survey needs to be conducted by a professional soundproofing team.

Solutions identified by the survey will probably include the addition of materials with different densities and masses to help increase the soundproofing attributes of the area. The use of acoustic foams and rubbers of varying mass and density will help in absorbing noise and reduce reflections and transmission sources.

Voids between joists might require insulating to remove resonation gaps between them. Floor and ceiling voids and wall cavities can all be likened to a drum, where the space acts as an amplifying area for unwanted noise.

Mixed layers of materials with different densities and masses work better at absorbing noise than a single material layer of one type. This is due to the fact that the various frequencies are absorbed differently by different types of materials, therefore a diversity of layers, densities and shapes within your soundproofing armoury are required.

Any soundproofing specialist in Great Sankey will have to follow the the Building Regulations (Part E), if dealing with a domestic property. These requirements should be followed in order to safeguard yourself and others from being negatively impacted by noise pollution.

Trade associations in the soundproofing industry who provide training, qualifications and guidance are the Institute of Acoustics and the Association of Noise Consultants. Any Great Sankey firm displaying ANC or IOA accreditation will have been appraised to make certain they provide the highest quality, standards and reliability of work within the soundproofing industry.

Soundproofing Underlay Great Sankey

Adding an acoustic underlay is an effective way of adding a bit of soundproofing to your Great Sankey home without causing any major disturbance. These can be used beneath vinyl planks, laminate, carpet or engineered wood floor coverings, and are suitable for both concrete and wood floors.

When there is a problem with impact as opposed to airborne noise, soundproofing underlay is particularly beneficial. Many homes in Great Sankey tend to have a massive issue with impact noise, and this is largely attributable to the popularity of "hard" floor finishes, which are more widespread right now. This is particularly problematic when coming from upstairs rooms, and the kind of noise issues that we are talking about here is children stomping around, shifting furniture and general foot traffic.

You shouldn't confuse acoustic underlay with regular carpet underlay, although some unprincipled carpet distributors might attempt to palm you off with this claiming it has good soundproofing qualities. Ensure that you purchase a quality acoustic underlay, if you have real problems with noise.

Whilst impact noise can be significantly lowered with the help of soundproofing underlay, it has varying degrees of success with regards to shouting, booming televisions and deafening music, and other airborne noises. Therefore, before selecting a particular underlay it is important to establish the specific types of noise you are seeking to lower, and discuss this with your supplier or soundproofing expert.

Soundproofing Foam Great Sankey

Just recently I thought that I'd have a look at what folks in Great Sankey are searching for online with regards to soundproofing, and it would appear that when looking on Google and other search engines one of the most commonly types in requests is "soundproofing foam". And on a local basis enquiries include "soundproofing foam Great Sankey". This is somewhat puzzling, because it implies a lack of awareness by local householders who seem to be under the impression that their noise problems can be sorted out through the use of acoustic foam products.

I don't wish to ruin your day, but soundproofing foam is not really the answer to most noise pollution issues, and is definitely not much use if you are hoping to block out the racket from your noisy next door neighbours in Great Sankey.

Often sold in sheet or tile form, this "egg box" shaped foam that you frequently see on sale isn't actually designed for blocking out noise, but is really meant to be used in music studios and similar situations, to enhance the sound clarity in a room, and reduce reverberation and echoing. This product isn't effective in preventing noise from travelling through a party wall, or even moving freely around your house and causing annoyance. As opposed to stopping it, soundproofing foam allows sound to pass through it, because it is actually porous.

It may be that you're actually creating a music room in your home in Great Sankey, in which instance this foam product could be handy for you.

AMW (Acoustic Mineral Wool)

One of the handiest materials available for the soundproofing of homes and buildings in Great Sankey, acoustic mineral wool (AMW) has various different applications for your noise reduction needs. Designed specifically for installation in the cavity spaces of floors, walls and ceilings, acoustic mineral wool is effective in reducing reverberation, absorbing airborne sound and enhancing acoustic performance.

Acoustic Mineral Wool Great Sankey

AMW typically comes in 1200mm x 600mm slabs and is readily available in 25mm, 50mm, 75mm and 100mm thicknesses. Often partly made with recycled raw materials (around 20%), AMW is non-combustible and is chemically inert. It's rare for bacteria, mould or fungi to be found growing in AMW, and it doesn't have a reaction with metal wall ties, masonry, brickwork, plastics, or other substances or materials that it comes into contact with.

Acoustic mineral wool is especially effective as a sound absorbing infill when installed in the gaps between stud partitions, floor joists and suspended ceilings, and is widely used in the building sector for thermal, fire and acoustic insulation. To abide by the Building Regulations (Part E) in relation to separating floors and walls, AMW can be used together with other soundproofing materials.
