Kilsyth Soundproofing & Noise Reduction Services

Soundproofer Kilsyth Scotland (G65): If your home in Kilsyth is being impacted by noise, maybe you should think about installing or upgrading your soundproofing to bring a new sense of tranquility to your lounge, bedroom, home office or studio. Conversely you may wish to soundproof a single room to keep load noises in, for instance in a home cinema or family room, so that others aren't disturbed. Either way, soundproofing is crucial for your sanity and peace of mind.

Before we are able to identify strategies for countering sound pollution, it would be advantageous to understand just how sound travels.

Soundproofing Kilsyth Scotland (G65)

Sound basically travels in two ways around a home:

1. Through objects by the vibration of the material.

2. Through the air by vibration of air molecules.

As whale and dolphin songs can show, sound also penetrates long distance through water, but unless your intention is to soundproof an aquarium or pool we'll look only at the strategies for soundproofing rooms and buildings.

SOUND THROUGH THE AIR

If you glance around the area or room to be soundproofed and discover single glazed windows, open air-ducting, gaps around doors and even electrical switches and sockets, these are all aspects that can cause the transmission of sound. All sound and noise will create the vibration and movement of the air molecules, and it is this that we hear. No matter the source of the sound; music, machinery, aircraft, kids playing or road traffic, all sounds are produced and transmitted in exactly the same way.

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

SOUND TRAVEL THROUGH STRUCTURES AND OBJECTS

If sound travels through the air by vibrations, then it makes perfect sense that such vibrations can be transferred to, absorbed by or reflected by various solid materials. Sound will cause vibrations in the floors, ceilings and walls of your rooms, and can result in a resonation effect that is transferred outside of the room itself. Care must be taken with brick or solid concrete walls, such as in basements, since sound can be transmitted and sometimes even amplified to other areas of your house.

How do we stop this resonation having a detrimental impact on other people? Soundproofing obviously.

BASIC STEPS IN SOUNDPROOFING

Give some thought to covering bare floors, which reflect and resonate sound, with a carpet or rug. The rugs or other soft coverings will help to soak up noise but can also add a touch of style to an otherwise bare room. Wall coverings or window drapes can also be employed to enhance soundproofing and are easy to fit and maintain.

Another inexpensive and do-it-yourself remedy is to plug any holes or gaps around sockets, windows, light fittings and doors. There are unique acoustic sealants available to buy that suppress the sound waves, and don't transfer them to the surrounding materials. Acoustic sealants are inclined to be a bit more pricey than standard sealant products, but their unique soundproofing qualities far outweigh the small extra cost.

If you are luckily enough to be renovating or redecorating while tackling your soundproofing requirements, then look into installing an additional layer of plasterboard (also called gyproc, sheet rock or drywall). This is a dense board that is an economic and useful soundproofing material. If you're fitting a movie room, home office or music studio then plasterboard will help reduce sound pollution for that room, and can be readily decorated after completion. If you do decide to use plasterboard to help with your soundproofing exploits it is better to use a specialist fitter in Kilsyth, to get the maximum effect from its installment.

The final solution for do-it-yourself enthusiasts is to check out the doors within your property in Kilsyth. Hollow doors are fairly cheap but their soundproofing capabilities are a far cry from the best. Solid doors, while a tad more expensive, can have a significant effect on the soundproofing capabilities of a room.

You will get the best soundproofing outcome by hiring the expertise of an experienced soundproofing company.

Soundproofer Near Kilsyth Scotland

Be ready to answer the following four questions during an initial evaluation of your particular soundproofing requirements:

  1. What is the main point where the noise causes the biggest issues? i.e. Is it emanating up through the floors, through doors/windows, down from above or from the walls, or is it a mix of all these things.
  2. How large is the space you need to be soundproofed?
  3. What room needs to be soundproofed? i.e. Is it a concrete lined cellar, a stud partitioned room, a brick walled room or a loft conversion.
  4. What sounds or noise are you looking to suppress? i.e. External issues such as traffic noise, aircraft, next door neighbours etc, or internal sounds from a teenagers bedroom or family room.

Your answers to these questions will enable you to get quotations for the different solutions available to suit your circumstances. There will be different solutions for each of the key areas the space you want to soundproof.

PROFESSIONAL SOUNDPROOFING OF CEILINGS, FLOORS and WALLS

To soundproof any sort of room requires 2 key approaches:

  1. Minimise sound resonating and amplifying.
  2. Improve the absorption of sound.

A site survey is going to be needed to assess the areas that need to be improved.

The team will work out ways of adding materials with different masses and densities to maximise the sound absorption properties of the area. This additional mass will include ways to enhance absorption of the sound energy through the use of acoustic rubber or foam to achieve the maximum noise reduction impacts.

Soundproofing Services Kilsyth (G65)

Voids between joists might need insulating to remove the resonating space between them. Wall cavities or flooring and ceiling voids can all be assimilated with a drum, where the space inside acts as an amplifying area for any undesirable noise.

Combined layers of differing density and mass materials work better at absorbing sound than a single soundproofing material layer of one type. This is because different materials react in different ways with different frequencies and will provide a better acoustic solution to your soundproofing project.

Part E of the Building Regulations focus on the soundproofing of domestic properties, and will have to be adhered to by any soundproofing service in Kilsyth. These regulations have the objective of protecting neighbours and other residents in the area from the impact of sound pollution.

Watch out for companies showing the logos of the Institute of Acoustics (IOA) or the Association of Noise Consultants (ANC) to be sure you're dealing with a business which is fully qualified and knowledgeable in the soundproofing sector.

Soundproofing Underlay Kilsyth

One way of adding a bit of soundproofing to your property in Kilsyth, without any serious disturbance, is to add acoustic underlay. Both concrete and wood floors are suitable for these underlays, and they can be laid under engineered wood, carpet, vinyl planks and laminate.

When there's an issue with impact noise as opposed to airborne noise, acoustic underlay is especially beneficial. The more widespread use of hard floor surface finishes means that impact noise pollution has become an increasing problem for householders in Kilsyth. This is especially problematic when coming from rooms upstairs, and the form of noise we are talking about here is general footfall, moving furniture and kids running around.

Although some carpet stockists may try to sell you normal carpet underlay, claiming that it has soundproofing qualities, this should not be confused with authentic soundproofing or acoustic underlay. If the noise problems you are experiencing are severe, ensure that you buy a good quality acoustic underlay from a trustworthy dealer.

While impact noise can be dramatically lowered with the help of soundproofing underlays, they have differing degrees of success when it comes to loud music, constant talking and booming TV's, and other airborne noise pollution. So, it's vital to understand the exact kinds of noise you are endeavouring to reduce before deciding on a product, and talk to your soundproofing specialist or supplier about your specific circumstances.

Acoustic Mineral Wool (AMW)

For you noise reduction requirements in Kilsyth, AMW (or acoustic mineral wool) is one of the handiest products for soundproofing homes or other buildings, and has a range of applications. Acoustic grade mineral wool is designed specifically for installation in the cavity spaces of walls, floors and ceilings, to dampen vibrations, absorb sound waves and improve acoustic performance.

Acoustic Mineral Wool Kilsyth

Available in 25mm, 50mm, 75mm and 100mm thicknesses, acoustic mineral wool typically comes in 1200mm x 600mm "slabs". Acoustic mineral wool is safe for use in your home in Kilsyth, as it has an inert chemical composition and is non-combustible, it is also environmentally-friendly being made partly out of recycled raw materials. It will not react with any substances or materials that it comes into contact with (i.e. metal wall ties, masonry, brickwork, plasticsetc), and doesn't encourage the development of mould, bacteria or fungi.

Notably effective as a sound absorbing filler when installed between suspended ceilings, floor joists and stud partitions, acoustic mineral wool is widely used in the building sector for acoustic, thermal and fire insulation. To comply with Part E of the Building Regulations with regards to separating floors and walls, AMW can be used side by side with other soundproofing products.

Soundproofing Foam Kilsyth

I was interested to learn recently that a popular search term typed into Google and Bing was "soundproofing foam", and local searches included things like "acoustical foam Kilsyth" and "soundproofing foam Kilsyth". Now, that's quite interesting because this would imply that local home owners are looking to soundproofing foam products as an answer to their noise problems in Kilsyth.

I don't want to rain on anyone's parade, but soundproofing foam isn't really the answer to most noise issues, and is most certainly not much use if you're hoping to filter out the din from noisy next door neighbours in Kilsyth.

The familiar "egg box" shaped foam, that often seems to be the hallmark of soundproofing, was not actually developed for stopping the transmission of noise, but is meant for the reduction of echoing and amplifying in music studios and similar settings, where it can also enhance the sound clarity in a room. This sort of soundproofing foam is not efficient at stopping sound from passing through a party wall or preventing noise from moving around the rooms of your home. As opposed to blocking it, soundproofing foam allows sound to pass through it, because it is actually porous.

Then again, if you happen to be working on a project such as a music studio, this material may be helpful for you, and can be bought in various sheet sizes and different thicknesses (typically 25mm and 50mm).
