It's important for us to learn how sound travels and is transmitted around an area before it is possible to identify methods to stop it from occurring.

Soundproofing Holmfirth West Yorkshire (HD9)

Basically, sound travels in two ways around a home:

1. By vibration of solid materials and objects.

2. By the vibration of air molecules.

As whale and dolphin songs can show, sound also penetrates long distance through water, however unless you wish to soundproof an aquarium or pool we'll just look at the strategies for soundproofing structures and rooms.


Any ill fitting windows, heating ducts, gaps around doors and even light fittings and electrical sockets can all affect the transmission of sound into or outside a room. What we hear and identify as sound is really air molucules being vibrated and reaching our ear drums. Regardless of the source of the sound; machinery, music playing, road traffic, children playing or aircraft, all sounds are generated and transferred in precisely the same manner.

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


If sound moves through the air by vibration, then it seems reasonable to assume that this vibration can be reflected by, transferred to or absorbed by different materials. The floors, walls and ceilings will all affect how sound travels around an area, and can even transfer that vibration to other areas of a building. Care should be taken with solid brick or concrete walls, such as in cellars or basements, because sound can be reflected and amplified to other areas of your house.

How do we stop this sound transmission from affecting others? Soundproofing obviously.


A bare floor surface is more resonant than one covered with a carpet or rug. Not only can such a simple solution help reduce your noise pollution problem, it can also perk up the room. Hanging curtains and wall coverings can also avoid sound reflections and vibrations through walls and windows without the need to hire a professional team of soundproofing specialists.

Track down areas in the room where noise can come in or escape from; light fittings, sockets, doors and windows, and seal up any holes or gaps. Plugging the holes and gaps with a special acoustic sealant found in many DIY centres and builders merchants, will make a massive difference to how your room sounds. They may be a bit more pricey than standard sealants or plaster, but are worthwhile for their soundproofing qualities.

If your room is an empty canvas and you're soundproofing while you renovate or decorate, think about putting up a layer of plasterboard or soundboard, (also known as sheet rock, drywall or gypsum board). This is a fairly dense type of boarding which is an economic and useful soundproofing material. It's ideal if you're setting up a study, cinema room or music studio in your house in Holmfirth. It's better to hire a reliable Holmfirth tradesman to fit the plasterboard unless you are experienced in this task.

Soundproofer Quotes in Holmfirth West Yorkshire

Last but not least you need to examine all doors in the room you're seeking to soundproof. Hollow doors are a fairly cheap option but their soundproofing capabilities are a far cry from perfect. If you are able to change to solid wood doors you'll find it boosts your soundproofing at very little extra cost.


If you happen to live in a high sound pollution area, such as near an airport or next to busy roads, you will need to be more creative in your endeavours to enhance the soundproofing qualities of your property. The best way to resolve these problems is to call in an established acoustic and soundproofing firm from the local area.

Soundproofer Near Holmfirth West Yorkshire

Be prepared to answer the following four questions during an investigation of your specific soundproofing requirements:

  1. What kind of property or room would you like to soundproof? Is it a brick wall, a lined concrete wall or a plasterboarded partition wall etc.
  2. Where exactly is the primary source of the sound coming from? i.e. Overhead, through the doors, ceiling, windows, walls or floors, or a mixture.
  3. What sounds or noise are you seeking to reduce? i.e. External factors like next door neighbours, road noise, passing trains etc, or sounds within your property from a family room or music studio.
  4. How large is the room that you need to have soundproofed?

With accurate answers to these queries a good quality soundproofing installer in Holmfirth will figure out solutions for your situation, and just as important, your budget. The areas of your room that are causing the biggest problems will each need different remedies.


To soundproof any sort of room requires two key approaches:

  1. Reduce the effect of sound amplification, reflection and vibration by solid surfaces.
  2. Update and improve the level of sound absorption.

This requires a site survey to verify what areas need improving from the present condition.

The specialists 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 varying density and mass will help to absorb noise and reduce reflections and transmission sources.

Insulation between any existing voids will be improved or upgraded to reduce the sound resonation and amplification of these "sound boxes". If you visualise such spaces like a drum then you'll see that by leaving wall cavities and floor or ceiling joist spaces open, you're effectively creating a noise amplification area.

Soundproofing capabilities are enhanced if different densities and materials are used, rather than installing only one kind of material. The diverse materials will eliminate different sound frequencies and offer a more rounded feeling and auditory experience to a room.

Any soundproofing specialist in Holmfirth must conform to the Part E of the Building Regulations, if dealing with a residential property. These regulations must be observed so as to protect yourself and neighbours from the harmful effects of sound pollution.

Trade associations in the soundproofing sector who offer training, qualifications and advice are the Association of Noise Consultants (ANC) and the Institute of Acoustics (IOA). Any Holmfirth firm showing IOA or ANC accreditation will have been vetted to make sure they provide the highest quality, reliability and standards of workmanship within the industry.

Soundproofing Foam Holmfirth

It would seem from carrying out some basic keyword research that a popular search on Google is for "soundproofing foam" and for householders in Holmfirth, possibly "soundproofing foam Holmfirth". Now, this implies that many folks are in search of a solution to soundproof their properties in Holmfirth, and are turning to acoustic foam to do this.

I don't wish to spoil anyone's day, but soundproofing foam is not really the answer to most noise pollution problems, and is certainly not effective if you're hoping to filter out the din from your noisy neighbours in Holmfirth.

The familiar "egg box" shaped foam, that often appears to be the hallmark of soundproofing, isn't actually designed for stopping the transmission of noise, but has the purpose of reducing amplifying and echoing in music studios and comparable environments, where it can also enhance the sound clarity in a room. This type of soundproofing foam is not effective in preventing noise from passing through a wall, or stopping sound from travelling around the rooms of your home. Seeing as it is porous, soundproofing foam absorbs sound and lets sound pass through it, rather than stopping it.

It may be that you actually have a music room in your property in Holmfirth, in which instance this product may be handy for you. (Tags: Music Room Soundproofing Holmfirth, Soundproof Foam Holmfirth, Acoustic Foam Holmfirth, Soundproofing Foam Holmfirth).

Acoustic or Soundproofing Underlay Holmfirth

Adding a soundproofing underlay is a good way of adding a bit of soundproofing to your Holmfirth home without causing any significant disruption. These can be used under carpet, engineered wood, vinyl planks or laminate floor coverings, and are designed for both concrete and timber floors.

Where there are problems with impact as opposed to airborne noise, soundproofing underlay is particularly beneficial. The increased popularity of "hard" floor finishes in Holmfirth properties, means there are more and more issues with impact noise. Activities like children stomping around, shifting furniture and general foot traffic, are the type of noise we're referring to here.

Although some carpet retailers may try to palm you off with regular carpet underlay with claims that it has soundproofing attributes, this shouldn't be mistaken for authentic soundproofing underlay. Be sure to purchase a decent acoustic underlay, if if you're experiencing significant issues with noise.

Even though soundproofing underlay is mainly effective for reducing impact noise, some are better than others when it comes to airborne noise like blaring televisions, constant talking and deafening music. So, when buying an underlay it is vital to identify the exact types of noise you're attempting to reduce, and chat about this with the soundproofing expert or supplier beforehand.
