Soundproofer Johnstone Scotland (PA5): If you are anxious about the level of noise that is infiltrating your Johnstone property, be it in a home office, studio, lounge or bedroom, you should think about installing some soundproofing. In some instances you could be looking at soundproofing so you don't disturb others from a music room, family room or home cinema. No matter what soundproofing needs are required, it will be vital for you and your neighbour's peace of mind and sanity.
Before we are able to identify strategies for reducing sound pollution, it will help if we understand exactly how sound travels and is transmitted.
Sound is able to move in two different ways:
1. By vibration of solid materials and objects.
2. In open spaces by movement of air.
As dolphin and whale song demonstrates, sound also penetrates long distance through water, however unless your aim is to soundproof a swimming pool or aquarium we'll just look at the techniques of soundproofing structures and rooms.
SOUND THROUGH THE AIR
Sounds can be transferred into and out of a room through gaps around doors, open air-ducting, ill fitting windows and even electrical switches and sockets. Any noise vibrates the molecules in the air and these vibrations are what we hear as sound. No matter the source of the noise; kids playing, music, busy traffic, aircraft or heavy machinery, all sounds are created and transferred in exactly the same manner.
If you try to imagine your room as a bucket, you're attempting to find any leaks that need sealing before you fill it up with liquid.
SOUND THROUGH STRUCTURES AND OBJECTS
As sound travels through the air by vibration, then it seems reasonable to assume that this vibration can be absorbed by, reflected by or transferred to different solid materials. Sound will vibrate the floors, walls and ceilings of your rooms, and may lead to a resonating effect which is transferred beyond the room itself. Even in a room that is built from a dense material that is proofed against sound, such as a concrete lined cellar, the sound can sometimes be transmitted and maybe even amplified to other rooms in the dwelling.
How should we prevent these vibrations and sounds from having an adverse effect on other folks? Soundproofing is the remedy.
SIMPLE STEPS IN SOUNDPROOFING
If you've got bare floor surfaces or floorboards, consider putting down a few rugs or cover with a carpet to help reduce any sound reflections and vibrations. Such a simple and straightforward solution can spruce up a room and help dampen down any noise at the same time. Curtains, and especially heavy blackout ones, can also suppress any noises from invading or escaping the area, cost-effectively and without requiring professional installation.
Search for areas around the room where sound can come in or escape from; electrical sockets, light fittings, windows and doors, and seal up any holes or gaps. There are some special acoustic sealants available on the market that suppress the sound waves, and don't transmit them to the surrounding materials. There will be a considerable difference in the price in comparison with a normal sealant, but the soundproofing abilities are much better and can make a big difference to a room's soundproofing.
If you are fortunate enough to be renovating or redecorating while considering your soundproofing, then look at putting up an additional layer of plasterboard (also known as drywall, gyproc or sheet rock). This is a relatively dense type of board that is an economic and useful soundproofing material. It's effective for areas like studios, home offices or movie rooms which are being built within the home. If you are not familiar with fitting framing and plasterboard, it's best to use a specialist Johnstone contractor to guarantee the best soundproofing benefits from its use.
One last simple soundproofing solution is to examine the materials your doors are made of. Hollow doors are reasonably cheap but their soundproofing qualities are a far cry from perfect. If you are able to change to solid wooden doors you will find it boosts your room's soundproofing at very little extra cost.
PROFESSIONAL SOUNDPROOFING SOLUTIONS JOHNSTONE
If you live in a high noise pollution location, such as near an airport or next to busy roads, you'll need to be more imaginative in how to increase the quality of the soundproofing in your property. The best way to resolve these issues is to bring in a reliable soundproofing and acoustic firm from your local region.
Be ready to answer the following four questions during an evaluation of your specific soundproofing needs:
- What area needs soundproofing? i.e. Is it a brick walled room, a plasterboard partition room, a loft conversion or a concrete lined cellar.
- How big is the room that needs soundproofing?
- From which direction do the noises appear to be coming from? i.e. Through the ceiling, floor, walls, windows or doors or a mixture of all of them.
- What are the specific noises that need to soundproofed? i.e. Is it outside noises such as overflying aircraft, neighbours playing loud music, road noise etc, or is it from within your house such as a family room or music room.
Your answers to such queries will allow you to receive itemised quotes for the different solutions available to suit your needs. There will be distinct solutions for each of the main key areas of the room you wish to soundproof.
PROFESSIONAL SOUNDPROOFING OF FLOORS, WALLS and CEILINGS
2 key approaches are required to soundproof any kind of space:
- Lessen the effect of sound reflection, vibration and amplification by solid surfaces.
- Improve and update the level of sound absorption.
A site survey is going to be necessary to assess the areas that need improving.
The installer will work out ways of adding materials with different densities and masses to boost the sound absorption of the room. Soundproofing will be enhanced by the application of acoustic foam and rubber which absorbs excess noise and improves and a room's sound quality.
The insulation between any existing voids will be upgraded to lower the noise resonation and amplification of these sound boxes. If you picture these spaces like a drum then you will see that by leaving wall cavities and floor or ceiling joist spaces empty, you're creating a noise amplification area.
Mixed layers of differing mass and density materials work better at absorbing noise than a single layer of one material type. This is because different frequencies are affected by different materials, therefore a diversity of shapes, densities and layers within your soundproofing armoury are necessary for the best results.
All soundproofing firms in Johnstone need to follow the regulations for residential buildings as set down in the Building Regulations (Part E). Such regulations should be adopted so as to protect yourself and neighbours from being negatively impacted by sound pollution.

AMW (Acoustic Mineral Wool)
For you noise reduction requirements in Johnstone, AMW (or acoustic mineral wool) is one of the handiest products on the market for soundproofing homes or other structures, and has various different applications. Acoustic grade mineral wool is designed specifically for installation in the cavity spaces of floors, walls and ceilings, to absorb sound waves, dampen vibrations and improve acoustic performance.
Usually available in "slabs" of 600mm x 1200mm, AMW also comes in several thicknesses (25mm, 50mm, 75mm and 100mm). Often partly made from recycled raw materials (around 20%), acoustic mineral wool is chemically inert, and is non-flammable. It is rare for mould, bacteria or fungi to be found growing in acoustic mineral wool, and it will not react with plastics, metal wall ties, masonry, brickwork, or other substances or materials that it makes contact with.
Especially effective as a sound absorption filler when installed in the gaps between flooring joists, stud partitioning and suspended ceilings, acoustic mineral wool is widely used in the construction sector for thermal, fire and acoustic insulation. In relation to separating walls and floors, and when used alongside other soundproofing products, AMW can help in abiding by The Building Regulations (Part E).
