Before we can discover strategies for eliminating sound pollution, we should understand exactly how sound travels and is transmitted.

Soundproofing Hetton-le-Hole Tyne and Wear (DH5)

Sound is able to move in two different ways:

1. Around and within a solid object by vibration and reflection.

2. In open spaces by movement of air.

Sound is also transmitted through water, however unless you're thinking about soundproofing a swimming pool or aquarium we'll just concentrate on the isolation via air and materials.


Sound can be transmitted into and out of a room through heating ducts, gaps around doors, single glazed windows and even electrical sockets and light fittings. All sound and noise will initiate the vibration and movement of the molecules in the air, and this is what we identify and hear. No matter what the source of the sound; heavy machinery, music playing, aircraft, kids playing or traffic, all sounds are created and transmitted in precisely the same fashion.

If you try and think of your room as a bucket, and you're trying to find any leaks to seal before you fill it with liquid.


We know that sound is just the vibrations of air reaching the ear, however those vibrations are also absorbed by solid objects. Sound can be transported around a dwelling from its original source through the vibration of walls, ceilings and floors. Even in a room that's built from a solid material which is resistant to sound vibrations, such as a concrete lined basement, the sound can be reflected and even amplified to other parts of the property.

So, how can we stop this resonation having an impact on other people? Soundproofing obviously.


A bare floor resonates more than one covered by a rug or carpet. Such a simple solution can spruce up a room and help to dampen down any noises to boot. Wall coverings or window drapes can also be employed to enhance soundproofing and are simple to install.

Look for areas around the room where noise can come in or escape from; doors, windows, light fittings and electrical sockets, and seal any gaps. Stopping up the gaps and holes with a special acoustic sealant that can be purchased in many DIY centres and builders merchants, can make an enormous difference to how your room sounds. Acoustic sealants are inclined to be a touch more pricey than standard plaster or other sealant products, but the special design has far greater soundproofing performance and is certainly worth the extra cost.

If your room is an empty canvas and you're doing the soundproofing while you renovate or decorate, consider putting up another skin of plasterboard or soundboard, (also called sheet rock, gyproc or drywall). This is an efficient and economical soundproofing material due to its dense nature. It is ideal if you're putting in a studio, home office or cinema room in your home in Hetton-le-Hole. If you are not experienced in fitting studding and plasterboard, it is generally best to employ a professional team to guarantee you the best soundproofing gains from its installation.

Soundproofer Quotes in Hetton-le-Hole Tyne and Wear

One final simple soundproofing treatment is to look at the materials your doors are made of. Hollow doors are a fairly cheap option but their soundproofing capabilities are a far cry from the best. If you are able to change to solid doors you'll find it improves your soundproofing more cheaply than some other options.


If the level of sound pollution is high in your location, on account of traffic noise from a busy road nearby, or aircraft flying over for instance, then more severe ways to reduce the excess noise will need to be investigated. This is an instance when the services of an experienced soundproofing service will deliver the greatest results.

Soundproofer Near Hetton-le-Hole Tyne and Wear

Be ready to answer the following four questions during a review of your specific soundproofing requirements:

  1. Is it external sounds or internal noise that you need to target? i.e. To lessen next door neighbours, traffic or aircraft, or is it from internally generated sounds from a home cinema or teenagers bedroom for instance.
  2. What space needs to be soundproofed? i.e. Is it a loft conversion, a plasterboard partition room, a concrete lined basement or a brick walled room.
  3. How big is the space that you need to be soundproofed?
  4. Where exactly is the main source of sound emanating from? i.e. Overhead, through the windows, doors, walls, ceiling or floors, or a mixture.

With accurate answers to these queries a professional soundproofing firm in Hetton-le-Hole will offer you solutions to suit your situation, and just as important, your spending budget. There will be distinct remedies for each of the main key areas of the space you want to soundproof.


Two key approaches are required to soundproof any kind of space or room:

  1. Increase sound absorption.
  2. Reduce the effects on the way sound is reflected off and transmitted through hard surfaces.

An on-site survey is going to be needed to examine the aspects that need to be improved.

A specialist will consider the different ways to add density and mass to the main trouble spots. The use of acoustic rubbers and foams of varying mass and density will help in absorbing noise and reduce transmission and reflection sources.

Voids between joists might need insulation to remove resonation gaps between them. Floor and ceiling voids and wall cavities can all be assimilated with a drum, where the space acts like an amplification source for undesirable sounds.

It is better to use combined layers of different density materials to soak up undesirable sounds than a solitary layer made of one soundproofing material. The different materials will reduce different sound frequencies and offer a more rounded auditory experience and feeling to a room.

All soundproofing contractors in Hetton-le-Hole have to follow the guidelines for domestic buildings as specified by the Building Regulations (Part E). This regulation has the objective of protecting other residents in the area from the impact of sound pollution.

Look for contractors displaying the logos of the Institute of Acoustics (IOA) or the Association of Noise Consultants (ANC) to be sure you are dealing with a business that is fully qualified and knowledgeable in the soundproofing industry. A reliable soundproofing contractor in Hetton-le-Hole will have been vetted for the quality and professionalism of their work to have been accepted as a member of these trade associations.

Acoustic Underlay Hetton-le-Hole

One of the many ways of adding some extra soundproofing to your Hetton-le-Hole home, without any significant disturbance, is to install soundproofing underlay. These can be used beneath engineered wood, vinyl planks, carpet or laminate floor coverings, and are ideal for both wood and concrete floors.

Where there's a lot of impact noise rather than airborne noise, soundproofing underlay is particularly beneficial. Recent increases in the popularity of "harder" floor finishes in Hetton-le-Hole, means issues with impact noise are becoming ever more common. Things like general foot traffic, shifting furniture and kids stomping around, are the type of noise we are talking about here.

You shouldn't confuse soundproofing or acoustic underlay with normal carpet underlay, although some unprincipled carpet stores may attempt to palm you off with this claiming it has decent soundproofing benefits. If your noise problems are severe, be sure to invest in a quality acoustic underlay from a respected vendor.

Whilst impact noise can be dramatically reduced through the use of soundproofing underlay, it's got differing levels of success when it comes to deafening music, blaring TV's and constant talking, and other airborne noise issues. Before buying an underlay product you should talk to the supplier or soundproofing expert about your particular circumstances, and discuss the precise kinds of noise you're attempting to reduce.

Soundproofing Foam Hetton-le-Hole

After doing some fundamental keyphrase research, it appears that one of the most frequent search requests on Google and other search engines is for "soundproofing foam" and for householders in Hetton-le-Hole, perhaps "soundproofing foam Hetton-le-Hole". This is somewhat confusing, because it would suggest a lack of understanding by local property owners who seem to be under the impression that their noise pollution problems can be solved by installing soundproofing foam products.

I'm not trying to be a bearer of bad tidings, but the truth is that soundproofing foam isn't likely to be the answer, and will certainly not eliminate the din caused by your noisy neighbours in Hetton-le-Hole.

The customary "egg box" shaped foam, that often seems to be the trademark of soundproofing, was not actually developed for stopping the transmission of noise, but is meant for the reduction of echoing and resonation in music studios and comparable settings, where it can also enhance the sound clarity in a room. This type of product isn't effective for preventing noise from travelling through the wall of a neighbouring property, or even moving freely around your home and causing a nuisance. Acoustic foam is in fact porous and doesn't block noise, it absorbs it and permits sound to pass through it.

It may be that you actually have a music studio in your home in Hetton-le-Hole, in which instance this product might be useful for you.

Acoustic Mineral Wool (AMW)

For you sound absorption requirements in Hetton-le-Hole, acoustic mineral wool is one of the most useful products available for the soundproofing of homes or other buildings, and has a number of different applications. Absorbing airborne sound, enhancing acoustic performance and dampening vibrations, acoustic grade mineral wool is specifically designed to be installed in the cavity spaces of floors, ceilings and walls.

Acoustic Mineral Wool Hetton-le-Hole

Normally available in slabs of 1200mm x 600mm, acoustic mineral wool also comes in different thicknesses (25 millimetres, 50 millimetres, 75 millimetres and 100 millimetres). Non-combustible and chemically inert, AMW is often made from recycled raw materials. It won't react with brickwork, plastics, metal wall ties, masonry, or other materials that it comes into contact with, nor does it encourage the growth of mould, bacteria or fungi.

Recognised in the construction industry for its fire, acoustic and thermal insulation attributes, AMW is especially effective as a sound absorbing infill when used between suspended ceilings, flooring joists and stud partitions. With regards to separating floors and walls, and in order to observe Part E of the Building Regulations, acoustic mineral wool can be used alongside other sound absorbing materials.
