Hatfield Soundproofing & Noise Reduction Services

Soundproofer Hatfield Hertfordshire (AL9): If you're anxious about the level of noise that is assailing your Hatfield property, be it in a studio, living room, bedroom or home office, you may want to look into installing some soundproofing. You may also be aware of noise from a home cinema or family room seeping out and causing a disturbance to others in the house. In any event, soundproofing is important for peace of mind and sanity.

Initially we need to learn precisely how is transmitted and travels before we are able to find ways to eliminate any excessive noise escaping from or intruding into your home.

Soundproofing Hatfield Hertfordshire (AL9)

Basically, sound moves in two ways around a room:

1. Through the air by vibration of air molecules.

2. Through the vibration of objects or materials.

Despite the fact that sound also travels through liquids, unless you are wanting to isolate sounds from an aquarium or swimming pool, we will just be concerned with how to reduce sound levels in rooms within a property.


Any heating ducts, gaps around doors, single glazed windows and even light fittings and electrical sockets can all be methods of transmission of sound into or outside a room. All noise and sound will initiate movement and vibration of the molecules in the air, and it is this that we pick up and hear. It does not matter if it's machinery, music playing, aeroplanes, children playing or road traffic, they all generate and transfer sound in the same manner.

You must therefore think of your room as a boat and inspect it carefully for leaks that need to be plugged before you can dare to sail it.


Sound waves can additionally be transferred to, absorbed by or reflected by solid materials and structures. Sound can be transferred around a property from its source through the vibration of floors, ceilings and walls. Even a room made from solid concrete, such as a basement, can generate a resonance path which transmits sound waves, and even amplify them, to other areas of a property.

How can we stop these sounds and vibrations from having an adverse effect on other people? Soundproofing is the remedy.


If you have bare floorboards or floors, think about covering them with carpet or laying a few rugs to help reduce any sound reflections and vibrations. These soft coverings and rugs will help soak up sounds and can also add a touch of style to an otherwise bare room. Wall coverings or window drapes can also be employed to boost soundproofing and are simple to fit and maintain.

Search for areas in your rooms where noise can escape or come in; doors, windows, electrical sockets and light fittings, and close off any gaps. Stopping up the gaps and holes with an acoustic sealant found in many DIY centres and builders merchants, can make a huge difference to how your room sounds. Acoustic sealants can be slightly more pricey than standard sealant products, but the special design has far greater soundproofing performance and is certainly worth the additional cost.

For anybody redecorating a room or renovating a property, consider the soundproofing benefits of adding a supplementary skin of soundboard or plasterboard, (also known as sheet rock, drywall or gypsum board), whilst you're tackling this project. This is an economic and efficient soundproofing material because of its dense nature. If you are fitting a music studio, movie room or home office then plasterboard can help to minimise sound pollution for that room, and can be easily decorated after installment. If you do decide to use plasterboard to help with your soundproofing exploits it is wise to use a specialist fitter in Hatfield, to get the maximum possible effect from its installation.

Soundproofer Quotes in Hatfield Hertfordshire

One final simple soundproofing remedy is to look at the materials from which your doors are made. If you have hollow doors fitted to rooms you will find that they can vibrate with any sound that hits them. If you are able to change to solid core doors you will discover that it improves your soundproofing more cheaply than some other options.


If your home is in a high sound pollution location, such as near an airport or next to busy roads, you'll need to be more innovative in your attempts to increase the soundproofing qualities of your house. This is an instance when using the services of an experienced soundproofing contractor will bring the best results.

Soundproofer Near Hatfield Hertfordshire

They will ask the four following questions during a basic assessment of your requirements:

  1. How large is the room that needs soundproofing?
  2. What area requires soundproofing? i.e. Is it a concrete lined basement, a loft conversion, a brick walled room or a plasterboard partition room.
  3. What sounds or noise are you attempting to reduce? i.e. External things like neighbours playing loud music, road noise, aircraft etc, or sounds inside your house from a home cinema or teenagers bedroom.
  4. What is the main point where the noise causes the most problems? i.e. Is it coming up through the flooring, down from overhead, through doors/windows or from the walls, or is it a mixture of all these factors.

A certified soundproofing contractor in Hatfield will look into all these points to offer solutions to your sound issues over a range of budgets. Remedies will vary according to the different materials required for each of the troublesome areas within your home.


To soundproof any type of room requires 2 key strategies:

  1. Reduce the effects on the way sound is reflected off and transmitted through solid surfaces.
  2. The absorption of sound will need to be maximised.

This will require a site survey to find out which areas require developing from the present state.

The team will look at ways to add materials that have different masses and densities to enhance the sound absorption of the room. The use of acoustic foams and rubbers of different density and mass will help in absorbing sounds and reduce reflections and transmission sources.

Any voids in the room might require some form of muffling material to be placed between them to lessen noise resonation. If you envision these spaces as similar to a drum then you'll see that by leaving wall cavities and floor or ceiling joist spaces empty, you're creating a sound amplification area.

It is best to use mixed layers of different density materials to deaden unwelcome noises than a solitary layer made from one soundproofing material. The different materials will eliminate different frequencies of sound and provide a more harmonious auditory experience and feeling to a room.

Any soundproofing company in Hatfield must comply with the the Building Regulations (Part E), if your property is residential in nature. These requirements have to be adopted in order to protect yourself and neighbours from the harmful effects of noise pollution.

Trade associations in the soundproofing sector who offer guidance, qualifications and training are the Institute of Acoustics (IOA) and the Association of Noise Consultants (ANC). Only those Hatfield companies that have been appraised and approved by these trade associations for reliability, quality and professionalism are allowed to bear the logo.

Soundproofing Underlay Hatfield

One of the less disruptive techniques for adding some extra soundproofing to your property in Hatfield is through the use of soundproofing underlay. These underlays can be used successfully on both concrete and timber floors, and beneath vinyl planks, engineered wood, carpet and laminate floor coverings.

Basically, acoustic underlay can be an especially effective solution when your issue is mostly impact noise and not an airborne noise problem. Nowadays, a rise in the popularity of "hard" floor finishes has resulted in more and more complaints about impact noise in many Hatfield properties. Activities like children running around, shifting furniture and general footfall, are the sort of noise we're talking about here.

You shouldn't confuse soundproofing or acoustic underlay with regular carpet underlay, although some unscrupulous carpet companies may well try to palm you off with this claiming it has decent soundproofing attributes. If you've got significant problems with noise make sure that you purchase a quality soundproofing underlay.

Although it's an effective product for impact noise, soundproofing underlay has differing levels of success when it comes to reducing airborne noise pollution such as booming televisions, shouting and deafening music, and some products are certainly much better than others. Consequently, it is essential to establish the precise types of noise you are endeavouring to reduce before choosing a particular underlay, and chat with your supplier or soundproofing specialist about your specific situation.

Acoustic Mineral Wool

Having a range of applications for your sound absorption requirements, AMW (or acoustic mineral wool) is one of the most useful materials on the market for soundproofing homes in Hatfield. Acoustic grade mineral wool is specifically designed to be installed in the cavity spaces of floors, ceilings and walls, to absorb airborne sound, dampen vibration and enhance acoustic performance.

Acoustic Mineral Wool Hatfield

Usually available in "slabs" of 1200mm x 600mm, acoustic mineral wool also comes in different thicknesses (25mm, 50mm, 75mm and 100mm). Acoustic mineral wool is often made with recycled materials (about 20%), is non-combustible and has an inert chemical composition. It is rare for bacteria, mould or fungi to form in AMW, and it does not react with metal wall ties, masonry, plastics, brickwork, or other substances or materials that it comes into contact with.

AMW is particularly effective as a sound absorbing infill when installed in the spaces between suspended ceilings, stud partitions and flooring joists, and is widely used in the construction sector for fire, thermal and acoustic insulation. To comply with Part E of the Building Regulations when it comes to separating floors and walls, AMW can be used in partnership with other soundproofing products.

Soundproofing Foam Hatfield

I was fascinated to learn just recently that a common search phrase entered on Google and other search engines was "soundproofing foam", and local searches included "soundproofing foam Hatfield" and "acoustic foam Hatfield". Now, that's rather worrying because this would suggest that local property owners are looking to soundproofing foam as a solution to their noise issues in Hatfield.

It isn't my intention to spoil anyone's day, but most noise related issues cannot be helped by this product, and if you are aiming to eliminate the racket caused by noisy neighbours in Hatfield, you will have to look someplace else.

The familiar "egg box" style foam, that seems to be the trademark of soundproofing, isn't actually designed for stopping the transmission of noise, but is meant for the reduction of echoing and resonation in music studios and similar spaces, where it can also improve the acoustic performance of a room. This sort of acoustic foam is not effective in preventing noise from passing through a neighbours wall, or stopping sound from travelling around the rooms of your home. Since soundproofing foam is porous and spongy, it actually allows sound to pass through it, and doesn't have the density to inhibit it.

It might be that you actually have a music room in your home in Hatfield, in which instance this material might be useful for you.
