Hoddesdon Soundproofing & Noise Reduction Services

Soundproofer Hoddesdon Hertfordshire (EN11): If you're anxious about the level of noise that's infiltrating your Hoddesdon home, be it in a home office, bedroom, studio or living room, you might want to look at putting in some soundproofing. Alternatively you might wish to soundproof a specific room to keep load noises in, for example in a home cinema or family room, so that others don't get disturbed. Either way, soundproofing is crucial for your peace of mind.

Before we can find techniques for countering sound pollution, it would be a good idea to understand precisely how sound travels and is transmitted.

Soundproofing Hoddesdon Hertfordshire (EN11)

Sound can travel in a couple of ways:

1. By the vibration of air molecules.

2. By vibration of solid materials and objects.

As dolphin and whale songs can show, sound also penetrates long distance through water, but unless you wish to soundproof a pool or aquarium we will just look at the methods of soundproofing rooms and structures.


Sounds can be transmitted out of and into a room through single glazed windows, gaps around doors, open air-ducting and even electrical sockets and light fittings. All sounds and noise will create movement and vibration of the air molecules, and this is what we hear. All sounds are moved through the air in the same fashion; it doesn't matter if it's heavy machinery, music, kids playing, passing aircraft or nearby traffic that creates the sound.

If you try and visualise your room as if it were a bucket, you're trying to find any leaks which need sealing before you can fill it up with liquid.


If sound travels through the air by vibrations, then it isn't surprising that those vibrations can be transferred to, absorbed by or reflected by various solid materials. Sound will cause vibrations in the ceilings, walls and floors of your rooms, and may cause a resonating effect which is transmitted outside of the area. Even in a room that's built from a solid material which is resistant against sound vibrations, such as a concrete lined cellar, the sound can sometimes be transmitted and perhaps even amplified to other rooms in the dwelling.

But, how can these sound transmitting effects be stopped from creating an issue? The solution is not surprisingly, soundproofing!


Consider covering a bare floor surface, which reflects and resonates sound, with a carpet or rug. Not only will such a simple solution reduce your problem with noise, it can also spruce up the room. Curtains, particularly substantial blackout types, will also subdue any sounds from invading or escaping a room, economically and without requiring professional installation.

Finding and sealing any holes or gaps in the room, think door frames, light fittings, electrical sockets and windows, is also an easy job for a competent do-it-yourselfer. There are unique acoustic sealants available on the market which suppress the sound waves, and do not transfer them to the surrounding materials. Acoustic sealants can be a little more expensive than standard plaster or other sealant products, however the special design has far greater soundproofing performance and is worth the additional cost.

For anybody redecorating a room or renovating a property, consider the soundproofing benefits of adding a supplementary skin of plasterboard or soundboard, (also known as gyproc, sheet rock or drywall), whilst you are carrying out the work. This is an efficient and economical soundproofing material owing to its dense nature. If you're fitting a study, music studio or movie room then plasterboard will help reduce sound pollution for that room, and can be readily decorated after completion. If you do choose plasterboard to aid your soundproofing exploits it is advisable to hire a specialist fitter in Hoddesdon, to gain the maximum benefit from its installment.

Soundproofer Quotes in Hoddesdon Hertfordshire

One final easy soundproofing option is to examine the materials your doors are made of. Even though hollow doors are light and fairly inexpensive, their soundproofing qualities are not the best. Solid wood doors, whilst a tad more expensive, can have a substantial effect on the soundproofing qualities of a room.


If you reside in a high sound pollution area, such as next to a busy road or near an airport, you'll have to be more ingenius in how to increase the quality of the soundproofing in your house. This is an instance when the services of a professional soundproofing service will deliver the greatest results.

Soundproofer Near Hoddesdon Hertfordshire

The first questions you can expect to be asked are:

  1. How large is the space requiring soundproofing?
  2. What is the room you want to soundproof made from? (i.e. a brick wall, a fully lined concrete wall or a plasterboarded partition wall).
  3. Where is the main source of sound coming from? i.e. Overhead, through the floors, windows, doors, ceiling or walls, or a combination of everything.
  4. Is it internal sounds or external noise that you need to deal with? i.e. To suppress traffic, trains or neighbours playing loud music, or is it from internally created sounds from a music room or home cinema for example.

With honest answers to these queries a trustworthy soundproofing installer in Hoddesdon will figure out solutions to suit your situation, and just as importantly, your budget. They'll provide different methods to soundproof each of the trouble spots within your home.


There are two key areas that must be addressed to soundproof any room:

  1. Reduce the ways that sound is transmitted through and reflected by hard surfaces.
  2. The absorption of sound will need to be increased.

This requires a site survey to verify exactly what areas require improving from the current condition.

A professional soundproofing company will investigate the different methods for adding mass and density to the main trouble spots. Soundproofing can be enhanced by the application of acoustic rubber, foam and other materials which absorbs sound waves and improves and the sound quality of a room.

Voids between joists might need insulating to eliminate resonation spaces between them. If you picture such spaces like a drum then you will see that by leaving floor or ceiling joist spaces and wall cavities empty, you're creating a sound amplifying area.

It is far better to use combined layers of different density materials to absorb undesirable sounds than a single layer fabricated from one type of material. The various materials will eliminate different frequencies of noise and offer a more sympathetic auditory experience and feeling to a room.

Part E of the Building Regulations deal with the soundproofing of residential properties, and must be adhered to by any installation company in Hoddesdon. Part E of the Building Regulations is a legally binding requirement to protect yourself and neighbours from the effects of noise pollution in a setting where folks live and work.

Trade organisations in the soundproofing sector who provide training, guidance and qualifications are the Institute of Acoustics (IOA) and the Association of Noise Consultants (ANC). A trustworthy soundproofing company in Hoddesdon will have been subject to a verification procedure for the quality and professionalism of their work to have been accepted as a member of these organisations.

Soundproofing or Acoustic Underlay Hoddesdon

If you are experiencing lots of noise in your home in Hoddesdon, an effective way to lessen this without too much disruption is by installing some acoustic or soundproofing underlay on your floors. These are okay for use beneath carpet, vinyl planks, laminate or engineered wood floor coverings, and are designed for both concrete and wooden floors.

Basically, soundproofing underlay can be an especially effective remedy when your problem is not so much airborne noise but primarily an impact noise issue. Impact noise tends to be a significant problem for Hoddesdon property owners nowadays, with a rise in the popularity of "hard" floor finishes. This is particularly problematic in rooms upstairs, and the form of noise issues that we're referring to here is moving furniture, kids stomping around and general footfall.

Don't confuse regular carpet underlay with authentic soundproofing or acoustic underlay, since some unscrupulous carpet stores might try to pass off such products, claiming that they are suitable. Make sure that you purchase a good quality soundproofing underlay, if you've got serious problems with noise.

While soundproofing underlay is mostly effective for reducing impact noise, some are much better than others when faced with airborne noises like incessant talking, loud music and blaring televisions. So, when picking out an underlay product it is essential to ascertain the exact kinds of noise you are looking to lower, and discuss this with your supplier or soundproofing specialist in advance.

Soundproofing Foam Hoddesdon

I was fascinated to discover just recently that a popular search term entered on Google and Yahoo was "soundproofing foam", and for local searches "acoustical foam Hoddesdon" and "soundproofing foam Hoddesdon". Now, this implies that many folks are trying to find a solution to soundproof their properties, and are looking to soundproofing foam to accomplish this.

It is not a case of me trying to ruin anyone's day, but the fact is that acoustic foam is not likely to be the answer to your prayers, and will definitely not block out the racket caused by noisy neighbours in Hoddesdon.

The familiar "egg box" style foam, that seems to be the trademark of soundproofing, was not actually developed for blocking out noise, but has the purpose of reducing reverberation and echoing in music studios and similar environments, where it can also improve the acoustic performance of a room. It is not effective for preventing sound from moving freely around your house, or stopping noise from penetrating the wall of a neighbouring building. Seeing as it's porous, acoustic foam actually absorbs sound and allows sound to pass through it, as opposed to stopping it.

Nonetheless, if you're engaged on creating a music studio, this foam product could be useful for you, and can be obtained in various sheet sizes and different thicknesses (generally 25 millimetre and 50 millimetre).

Acoustic Mineral Wool

One of the most versatile materials for soundproofing homes in Hoddesdon, acoustic mineral wool has various different applications for your noise reduction needs. Acoustic grade mineral wool is designed specifically for installation in the cavity spaces of floors, walls and ceilings, to absorb sound waves, reduce reverberations and enhance acoustic performance.

Acoustic Mineral Wool Hoddesdon

Commonly available in "slabs" of 600mm x 1200mm, AMW also comes in several thicknesses (25 millimetres, 50 millimetres, 75 millimetres and 100 millimetres). Acoustic mineral wool is safe to use in your house in Hoddesdon, as it is chemically inert and and is non-combustible, it is also friendly to the environment being made partly using recycled raw materials. It does not react with any materials that it comes into contact with (i.e. plastics, brickwork, masonry, metal wall ties), and does not encourage the growth of fungi, bacteria or mould.

Widely recognised in the building sector for its fire, acoustic and thermal insulation properties, acoustic mineral wool is notably effective as a sound absorption filler when installed between stud partitioning, suspended ceilings and flooring joists. When it comes to separating floors and walls, and when used in conjunction with other sound absorbing materials, acoustic mineral wool can help in complying with Part E of the Building Regulations.
