It is crucial to realise how sound travels around a building before it's possible to find solutions to prevent it from occurring.

Soundproofing Hellesdon Norfolk (NR6)

Sound basically travels in two ways throughout your room:

1. By the vibration of air molecules.

2. By vibration of solid materials and objects.

As dolphin and whale song shows, sound also penetrates long distance through water, but unless you wish to soundproof a swimming pool or aquarium we will look only at the strategies for soundproofing rooms and structures.


If you take a good look at the space to be soundproofed and notice heating ducts, single glazed windows, gaps around doors and even electrical sockets and switches, these are all causes of sound transmission. All sound and noise will initiate movement and vibration of the air molecules, and it is this that we hear and identify. It does not matter if it's heavy machinery, nearby traffic, children playing, music or aeroplanes, they all produce and transfer sound in the same manner.

Any openings in the room can be considered to be a leak and will have to be plugged.


Sound waves can also be transferred to, reflected by or absorbed by solid objects and structures. The walls, floors and ceilings will all have an impact on how sound moves around an area, and can even transport that vibration to other areas of a dwelling. Even in a room that's built from a dense material which is resistant to vibrations, such as a concrete cellar, the sound can sometimes be transmitted and maybe even amplified to other areas of the property.

But, how can these sound transmitting effects be stopped from creating an issue? The answer is naturally, soundproofing!


A bare floor surface is more resonant than one covered with a rug or carpet. Not only can such a simple and straightforward solution help reduce your noise pollution problem, it can also perk up the room. Curtains, and in particular heavy blackout ones, will also stifle any noises from invading or escaping the area, cost-effectively and without the need for specialist soundproofing.

Another inexpensive and DIY solution is to plug any gaps around doors, electrical sockets, windows and light fittings. Stopping up the holes and gaps with an acoustic sealant that can be purchased in many DIY and building material shops, can make an enormous difference to how your room sounds. There might be a little difference in price when compared with a normal sealant, however the soundproofing abilities are much better and will make a big difference to a room.

For anybody renovating a property or redecorating a room, consider the soundproofing gains of adding another skin of plasterboard or soundboard, (also known as sheet rock, drywall or gyproc), while you're tackling this work. This is a relatively dense board that's an economic and useful soundproofing material. If you are fitting a movie room, music studio or study then plasterboard can help to minimise sound pollution for that room, and can be decorated easily after completion. It is advisable to hire an experienced Hellesdon tradesman to put up the plasterboard unless you've got some experience in this kind of work.

The final solution for do-it-yourself enthusiasts is to think about the doors in your home in Hellesdon. Hollow doors are relatively cheap although their soundproofing capabilities are far from the best. Changing hollow core doors for solid core will appreciably improve the soundproofing properties of an area with only a small extra cost.


Some properties, such as those on aircraft flight-paths or next to busy roads, have naturally more sound pollution problems and will need other ways to resolve the dilemma. This is an instance when retaining the services of an established soundproofing installer will bring the greatest results.

Be prepared to answer the following four questions during an evaluation of your particular soundproofing requirements:

  1. Where is most of the sound emanating from? The doors, flooring, ceiling, walls or windows.
  2. How large is the room requiring soundproofing?
  3. What space needs to be soundproofed? i.e. Is it a stud partitioned room, a concrete lined cellar, a loft conversion or a brick walled room.
  4. What are the specific noises that need to soundproofed? i.e. Is it external noises such as passing trains, next door neighbours, road noise etc, or is it from within your house such as a teenagers bedroom or home cinema.

A certified soundproofing contractor in Hellesdon will look at all of these aspects to provide remedies for your sound issues over a range of budgets. Remedies might vary according to the different materials required for each of the trouble spots in your environment.


There are 2 areas that must be dealt with to soundproof any room or space:

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

Doing this requires an on-site survey to see what areas need improving from the present condition.

Conclusions from the survey will probably include the addition of materials with different densities and masses to help improve the soundproofing properties of the room. The addition of acoustic foams and rubbers of varying density and mass will help to absorb noise and reduce transmission and reflection sources.

The insulation between any existing voids will be improved or upgraded to reduce the noise resonation and amplification of these sound boxes. If you envision these spaces like a drum or wooden cajon then you'll understand that by leaving floor or ceiling joist spaces and wall cavities open, you're creating a sound amplification area.

Combined layers of materials with different masses and densities work better at absorbing noise than a solitary layer of one material type. The different materials will reduce different frequencies of noise and deliver a more balanced auditory experience and feeling to a room.

All soundproofing companies in Hellesdon have to follow the regulations for domestic buildings specified by the Building Regulations (Part E). Part E of the Building Regulations is a legally binding requirement to protect yourself and neighbours from the effects of sound pollution in an area where people work and live.
