Before we are able to find techniques for combating sound pollution, it will help if we understand just how sound travels and is transmitted.

Soundproofing Jedburgh Scotland (TD8)

There basically two ways in which sound can be transmitted around a home:

1. In open spaces by movement of air.

2. Through the vibration of objects or materials.

As dolphin and whale song shows, sound also penetrates long distance through water, but unless your intention is to soundproof a swimming pool or aquarium we'll just look at the strategies for soundproofing rooms and structures.

SOUND THROUGH THE AIR

If you check out the space to be soundproofed and detect gaps around doors, open ducting, ill fitted windows and even electrical sockets and switches, these are all aspects that can cause the transmission of sound. All sound vibrates the molecules in the air and this vibration is what we hear and identify as sound. No matter what the source of the noise; kids playing, music playing, machinery, busy traffic or aircraft, all sound is created and transmitted in precisely the same fashion.

Any gaps in the room can be looked at as leaks and will have to be closed off.

SOUND THROUGH OBJECTS AND STRUCTURES

We all know that sounds are simply the vibration of air reaching the ear, but that vibration is also reflected by or transferred to solid materials. Sound will vibrate the floors, ceilings and walls of your rooms, and may result in a resonating effect which is transmitted beyond the area. Even if a room is encased in a solid material that's proofed against sound vibrations, such as a concrete lined basement, the sound can sometimes be transmitted and perhaps even amplified to other parts of the building.

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

BASIC STEPS IN SOUNDPROOFING

Give some thought to covering bare floors, which reflect and resonate sound, with a rug or carpet. The rugs or other soft coverings will help to soak up sounds but can also add a touch of elegance to a previously bare room. Wall coverings or window drapes can also be employed to improve soundproofing and are easy to install.

Locating and sealing any gaps or holes in your rooms, think light fittings, electrical sockets, windows and door frames, is also a straightforward job for a competent DIY enthusiast. There are special acoustic sealants available to buy which suppress the sound waves, and don't transfer them to the surrounding materials. Acoustic sealants are inclined to be slightly more pricey than regular sealant products, but the special design has far greater soundproofing performance and is certainly worth the additional cost.

If you are luckily enough to be redecorating or renovating while dealing with your soundproofing, then look at installing an additional layer of plasterboard (also called gyproc, drywall or sheet rock). Plasterboard is a dense material which is both economical and efficient for soundproofing purposes. If you are fitting a study, cinema room or studio then plasterboard can help reduce sound pollution for that room, and can be decorated easily after completion. If you aren't proficient in fitting studding and plasterboard, it is generally advisable to employ a professional Jedburgh contractor to guarantee the best soundproofing improvements from its use.

One final easy soundproofing solution is to look at the materials from which your doors are made. If you've got hollow doors fitted to rooms you'll find they can vibrate and will resonate any sound that hits them. Solid core doors, while a little bit more expensive, can do wonders for soundproofing a room.

If you happen to live in a high sound pollution location, such as near an airport or next to busy roads, you'll need to be more imaginative in your attempts to improve the soundproofing qualities of your home.

Soundproofer Near Jedburgh Scotland

They will ask the four following questions during the initial assessment of your requirements:

  1. What kind of property or room would you like to soundproof? Is it a fully lined concrete wall, a brick wall or a plasterboarded partition wall etc.
  2. Where exactly is the principal source of noise emanating from? i.e. Above, through the floors, windows, doors, ceiling or walls, or a combination.
  3. How big is the area that needs soundproofing?
  4. What are the particular sounds that need to soundproofed? i.e. Is it external noises such as traffic noise, next door neighbours, aircraft etc, or is it from within your property such as a family room or music studio.

An experienced soundproofing installation company in Jedburgh will take into consideration all of these aspects to provide solutions to your noise issues for various budgets. There will be different solutions for each of the key areas the space you want to soundproof.

PROFESSIONAL SOUNDPROOFING OF CEILINGS, WALLS and FLOORS

There are two key areas that need to be addressed to successfully soundproof any room or space:

  1. Cut down on the ways that sound is reflected off and transmitted through hard surfaces.
  2. Maximise the absorption of sound.

An on-site survey will be needed to look at the areas that need improving.

Conclusions from the survey will include the addition of materials of different densities to help maximise the soundproofing capabilities of the area. The use of acoustic foams and rubbers of different mass and density will help to absorb sounds and reduce reflections and transmission sources.

Any noticeable voids in the room may require some type of muffling material to be inserted between them to lessen sound resonation. Floor and ceiling voids and cavities in walls can all be assimilated with a drum, where the space inside acts as an amplifying area for any unwelcome noise.

It is far better to use combined layers of different density materials to soak up unwanted noises than a single layer made of one kind of soundproofing material. The different materials will reduce different frequencies of sound and deliver a more balanced auditory experience and feeling to a room.

Any soundproofing installer in Jedburgh must comply with the Part E of the Building Regulations, if your property is residential in nature. These regulations have to be observed so as to protect yourself and others from being negatively impacted by sound pollution.

The Institute of Acoustics (IOA) and the Association of Noise Consultants (ANC) are trade associations who offer training, qualifications and are representative of the best in contractors and companies that offer soundproofing solutions. An experienced soundproofing firm in Jedburgh will have been through a verification procedure for the professionalism and quality of their work to have become a member of these trade bodies.

Soundproofing Foam Jedburgh

It seems from carrying out some simple keyphrase research that one of the most popular searches on Google is for "soundproofing foam" and for local people, "soundproofing foam Jedburgh". Now, this implies that many folks are in search of a solution to soundproof their homes, and are hoping that acoustic foam will accomplish this.

It is not my intention to rain on anyone's parade, but most soundproofing issues cannot be helped by this product, and if your goal is to eliminate the racket caused by noisy neighbours in Jedburgh, you will have to look someplace else.

The customary "egg box" style foam, that seems to be the trademark of soundproofing, wasn't actually developed for blocking out noise, but has the purpose of reducing resonation and echoing in music studios and comparable settings, where it can also improve the acoustic performance of a room. This type of soundproofing foam is not efficient at preventing noise from passing through a neighbours wall, or stopping sound from moving around your house. As it is porous, soundproofing foam actually absorbs sound and allows sound to pass through it, rather than blocking it.

This foam product may however be handy for you if you're creating a music studio in your house in Jedburgh, and if this is the case you'll find that it is available in different sheet sizes and thicknesses.

Acoustic Underlay Jedburgh

An excellent way of adding some soundproofing to your property in Jedburgh, without any serious disruption, is to add soundproofing or acoustic underlay. This can be used on concrete or wooden floors and can be used underneath vinyl planks, engineered wood, laminate, carpet, and several other types of flooring.

Basically, soundproofing underlay can be an especially helpful remedy where your issue is not so much airborne noise but mainly an impact noise problem. An increase in the popularity of "hard" floor finishes in Jedburgh properties, means there are a growing number of issues with impact noise. Things such as kids running around, general footfall and shifting furniture, are the form of noise that we're referring to here.

Don't be deceived by unscrupulous carpet stores, who may attempt to palm you off with regular carpet underlay as a solution to your noise issues - this sort of product should not be mistaken for genuine acoustic underlay, which is what you really need. If you are encountering severe noise issues in your home in Jedburgh, go to a trustworthy vendor and buy a decent soundproofing underlay which is appropriate for your specific needs.

Even though the installation of soundproofing underlay can be extremely effective in reducing impact noise within your home, airborne noise like shouting, deafening music and booming TV's, can be a whole different ball game, with some products being much better than others and having different success rates. Accordingly, it is essential to determine the specific kinds of noise you are hoping to lower before purchasing a particular underlay, and chat with your soundproofing specialist or supplier about your specific situation.
