Initially it would be advantageous to discover precisely how sound travels and is transmitted before we are able to identify ways to reduce any loud noise getting into or out of your property.

Soundproofing Helsby Cheshire (WA6)

Sound can travel in two different ways:

1. By the vibration of air molecules.

2. Through the vibration of objects or materials.

Sound is also transmitted through water, but unless you're planning to soundproof a swimming pool or aquarium we will simply concentrate on its isolation via materials and air.

SOUND THROUGH THE AIR

If you check out your area to be soundproofed and detect gaps around doors, single glazed windows, heating ducts and even electrical switches and sockets, these are all aspects that can cause the transmission of sound. All noise vibrates the molecules in the air and these vibrations are what we identify and hear as sound. All sounds are transmitted through the air in the same manner; it matters not if it's passing aircraft, road traffic, machinery, music or children playing that produces the sound.

Any holes within a room can be considered to be leaks and will have to be blocked.

SOUND TRAVELLING THROUGH OBJECTS AND STRUCTURES

If sound moves through the air by vibration, then it stands to reason that this vibration can be transferred to, absorbed by or reflected by different solid materials. Sound can be transmitted around a property from its original source through the vibration of ceilings, walls and floors. Even if a room is built from a solid material which is resistant against vibrations, such as a concrete lined cellar, the sound can be reflected and even amplified to other areas of the dwelling.

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

BASIC STEPS IN SOUNDPROOFING

Think about covering a bare floor, which resonates and reflects sound, with a carpet or rug. Such a simple solution can help to damp down any noise and enhance the room at the same time. Curtains, in particular heavy blackout styles, will also repress any sounds from escaping or invading a room, economically and without requiring professional installation.

Another economical and DIY resolution is to plug any gaps around light fittings, door frames, sockets and windows. Sealing the gaps and holes with a special acoustic sealant found in some DIY outlets and builders merchants, can make an enormous difference to how your room sounds. They may be a tad more pricey than standard sealants or plaster, but are worth the cost for their soundproofing qualities.

For anybody redecorating a room or renovating a property, consider the soundproofing properties of adding an extra layer of soundboard or plasterboard, (also known as sheet rock, gyproc or drywall), whilst you are undertaking the work. This is an efficient and economical soundproofing material because of its dense nature. It's effective for spaces such as home offices, home cinemas or music studios being built within your home in Helsby. If you do choose plasterboard to help with your soundproofing exploits it is wise to hire a specialist fitter in Helsby, to gain the maximum benefit from its installment.

The final solution for DIY enthusiasts is to think about the doors within your property in Helsby. If you've got hollow doors fitted to rooms you will discover they can resonate and vibrate with any sound that hits them. If you are able to change to solid doors you'll find it boosts your soundproofing more cheaply than some other alternatives.

The initial questions you should be asked are:

  1. What are the specific noises that need to soundproofed? i.e. Is it outside noises such as noisy neighbours, passing trains, street noise etc, or is it from within your house such as a teenagers bedroom or family room.
  2. What is the main point where the noise causes the biggest problems? i.e. Is it coming up through the flooring, through windows, down from above or from the walls, or is it a mix of all these things.
  3. What space needs to be soundproofed? i.e. Is it a brick walled room, a concrete lined basement, an attic conversion or a stud partitioned room.
  4. How big is the area that you need to be soundproofed?

PROFESSIONAL SOUNDPROOFING OF FLOORS, CEILINGS and WALLS

To soundproof any type of room requires two key approaches:

  1. Improve and maximise the amount of sound absorption.
  2. Minimise sound reverberation and amplifying.

Doing this requires a site survey to ascertain what areas require improving from the current condition.

The specialists will look at ways of adding materials that have different masses and densities to enhance the sound absorption of the room. Soundproofing will be improved by the application of acoustic foam and rubber which will absorb excess noise and enhance and the sound quality of a room.

Any uninsulated voids in the area may need some form of deadening material to be installed between them to reduce sound resonation. If you think of a drum for instance, you're looking at a noise increasing void enclosed within a resonating material; basically what you may find within ceiling and floor joists, or wall cavities.

It is better to use combined layers of different densities to absorb undesired noises than a solitary layer made from one material. This is because the various different materials react in different ways with various frequencies and will provide a much better resolution to your soundproofing.

All soundproofing companies in Helsby will be needing to follow the guidelines for domestic buildings set down in the Building Regulations (Part E). These regulations have the aim of protecting neighbours and other residents in the area from the impact of noise pollution.

Trade bodies in the soundproofing industry who offer training, qualifications and advice are the Institute of Acoustics and the Association of Noise Consultants. Any Helsby contractor showing IOA or ANC accreditation has been vetted to make sure they provide the highest quality, reliability and standards of work within the soundproofing industry.

Soundproofing Foam Helsby

It appears from doing some elementary keyphrase research that a frequent search on Google and other search engines is for "soundproofing foam" and for home owners in Helsby, perhaps "soundproofing foam Helsby". That is really quite concerning, as it illustrates that Helsby householders are under the impression that acoustic foam is a suitable product for reducing their noise issues.

It is not my intention to be the bearer of bad news, but most soundproofing issues can't be helped by this kind of product, and if your objective is to reduce the din caused by noisy neighbours in Helsby, you will need to look elsewhere.

The familiar "egg box" style foam, that appears 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 amplifying in music studios and similar surroundings, where it can also improve the acoustic performance of a room. Soundproofing foam of this sort is not good for stopping sound from moving around your house, or preventing noise from penetrating a neighbours wall. Given that it's porous, acoustic foam absorbs sound and lets sound pass through, as opposed to blocking it.

It might be that you actually have a music studio in your property in Helsby, in which case this foam product could be extremely useful for you. (Tags: Acoustical Foam Helsby, Acoustic Foam Helsby, Soundproof Foam Helsby, Soundproofing Foam Helsby).
