Before we are able to identify strategies for combating sound pollution, it will help if we understand precisely how sound travels.

Soundproofing Kilwinning Scotland (KA13)

Sound basically moves in two ways around a room:

1. The vibration or air molecules through the air.

2. Within and around a solid object by vibration and reflection.

Despite the fact that sound also travels through water, unless you are looking to isolate noise from an aquarium or swimming pool, we will only be concerned at how to reduce sound transmission in the rooms of a structure.


Sounds can be transferred out of and into a room through gaps around doors, heating ducts, ill fitted windows and even electrical sockets and light fittings. All sound vibrates the molecules in the air and these vibrations are what we hear as sound. All sounds are transferred through the air in the same manner; it does not matter if it's music, kids playing, busy traffic, machinery or aeroplanes that creates the sound.

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


Sound waves can also be reflected by, transferred to or absorbed by solid materials and structures. Sound will cause vibrations in the walls, ceilings and floors of your rooms, and can cause a resonating effect that's transmitted outside the room itself. Care has to be taken with solid concrete or brick walls, such as a cellar, as sound can be reflected and amplified to other parts of your property.

How should we stop these vibrations and sounds from having an adverse effect on other people? Soundproofing is the solution.


If you have bare floorboards or floors, think about covering them with carpet or laying a few rugs to help reduce any vibrations and sound reflections. The rugs or other soft coverings will help absorb noises but can also add a touch of style to an otherwise bare room. Window drapes and wall coverings can also be used to improve soundproofing and are simple to install.

Another inexpensive and do-it-yourself solution is to plug any gaps or holes around door frames, windows, light fittings and electrical sockets. You can find professional acoustic sealants in some building supply stores that subdue the transfer of sound by absorbing the sound waves. Acoustic sealants can be a bit more pricey than regular sealant products, but the special design has far greater soundproofing performance and is certainly worth the small additional cost.

For those of you who are renovating a property or redecorating a room, evaluate the soundproofing properties of adding an extra skin of soundboard or plasterboard, (also called sheet rock, gyproc or drywall), whilst you're carrying out this project. This is an efficient and economical soundproofing material due to its dense nature. If you're fitting a study, music studio or cinema room then plasterboard can help reduce sound transference from and to that room, and can be readily decorated after installation. If you do choose plasterboard to help with your soundproofing exploits it is wise to employ a specialist fitter in Kilwinning, to achieve the maximum benefit from its installation.

Soundproofer Quotes in Kilwinning Scotland

One final simple soundproofing remedy is to check the materials your doors are made of. If you've got hollow doors installed in your rooms you'll find that they can resonate and vibrate with any sound that they experience. Solid doors, while a bit more pricey, can do wonders for sound isolation in a room.


If the sound levels are extreme in your location, on account of traffic noise from a busy road nearby, or aircraft passing overhead for example, then more severe methods to deal with the excess noise will need to be investigated. The best way to resolve these problems is to bring in an established acoustic and soundproofing company from the local area.

Soundproofer Near Kilwinning Scotland

Expect to answer the following four questions during a survey of your soundproofing requirements:

  1. How big is the area that you want to have soundproofed?
  2. What are the specific noises that need to soundproofed? i.e. Is it outside noises such as next door neighbours, road noise, passing trains etc, or is it from within your property such as a music studio or family room.
  3. What space needs soundproofing? i.e. Is it a loft conversion, a plasterboard partition room, a concrete lined basement or a brick walled room.
  4. Where is most of the sound emanating from? The doors, flooring, windows, ceiling or walls.

A certified soundproofing contractor in Kilwinning will look into all these points to offer solutions to your sound problems over a range of budgets. They'll provide different methods for soundproofing each of the main trouble spots within your home.


To soundproof any type of room requires 2 key approaches:

  1. Reduce the ways that sound is reflected off and transmitted through hard surfaces.
  2. Increase and maximise the level of sound absorption.

A site survey is going to be needed to assess the elements to be improved.

The installer will work out ways of adding materials that have different densities and masses to enhance the sound absorption qualities 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 gain the maximum impact of noise reduction.

Soundproofing Services Kilwinning (KA13)

Any uninsulated voids in the area might require some form of muffling material to be inserted between them to reduce sound resonation. If you imagine a drum or wooden cajon, you are looking at a sound amplifying void enclosed within a resonating material; fundamentally what you may find within ceiling and floor joists, or wall cavities.

Soundproofing qualities are enhanced if different densities and materials are employed, rather than installing a single kind of material. The various materials will reduce different frequencies of noise and provide a more rounded auditory experience and feeling to a room.

Part E of the Building Regulations cover the soundproofing of residential properties, and must be followed by any installation company in Kilwinning. Part E of the Building Regulations is a requirement in law to protect yourself and neighbours from being affected by noise pollution in a setting where people live and work.

Look for contractors showing the logos of the Association of Noise Consultants or the Institute of Acoustics to make certain you're dealing with a business that is knowledgable and fully qualified in the soundproofing industry. Any Kilwinning firm showing IOA or ANC accreditation will have been appraised to make sure they offer the highest reliability, quality and standards of workmanship within the soundproofing industry.

Acoustic Underlay Kilwinning

A very good way of adding some extra soundproofing to your property in Kilwinning, without any serious disruption, is to add acoustic underlay. Both timber and concrete floors are suitable surfaces for these acoustic underlays, and they can be installed beneath carpet, laminate, vinyl planks and engineered wood.

Soundproofing underlay is particularly beneficial when there's an issue with impact rather than airborne noise. The current popularity of hard floor finishes means that impact noise is becoming a rising problem for homeowners in Kilwinning. This is especially problematic in upstairs rooms, and the sort of noise we're talking about here is children running around, moving furniture and general footfall.

Don't confuse normal carpet underlay with genuine soundproofing or acoustic underlay, as some carpet merchants might try to pass off such products, claiming that they're suitable. If your noise problems are serious, be sure to invest in a decent soundproofing underlay from a reputable dealer.

Even though impact noise can be significantly reduced with the help of acoustic underlay, it's got varying levels of success when it comes to deafening music, shouting and blaring TV's, and other airborne noise pollution. You should discuss the precise kinds of noise you're attempting to minimise with your supplier or soundproofing expert, and this should enable you to choose the right underlay product for your noise cancelling goals.

Acoustic Mineral Wool

Having a number of applications for your sound absorption requirements, acoustic mineral wool is one of the most versatile materials for soundproofing properties in Kilwinning. Improving acoustic performance, absorbing airborne sound and reducing reverberation, acoustic grade mineral wool is specifically designed to be installed in the cavity spaces of floors, walls and ceilings.

Acoustic Mineral Wool Kilwinning

Acoustic mineral wool normally comes in 600mm x 1200mm slabs and is widely available in thicknesses of 25mm, 50mm, 75mm and 100mm. Acoustic mineral wool is safe for use in your home in Kilwinning, as it is chemically inert and and is non-combustible, it is also friendly to the environment being made, in some part, using recycled materials. It doesn't encourage the development of fungi, mould or bacteria, nor does it react with any substances or materials that it comes into close contact with (i.e. plastics, brickwork, metal wall ties or masonry).

When utilised as a sound absorption filler between flooring joists, suspended ceilings and stud partitioning, AMW is notably effective, and it is renowned in the building industry for its acoustic, fire and thermal insulation attributes. With regards to separating walls and floors, and when used in conjunction with other sound absorbing solutions, AMW can help in complying with Part E of the Building Regulations.

Soundproofing Foam Kilwinning

After carrying out some fundamental keyphrase research, it would seem that one of the most commonly searched for terms on Google is for "soundproofing foam" and for home owners in Kilwinning, perhaps "soundproofing foam Kilwinning". This is rather puzzling, because it indicates a basic lack of awareness by local homeowners who seem to be under the impression that their noise issues can be sorted through the use of soundproofing foam products.

I don't wish to ruin anyone's day, but soundproofing foam is not really the answer to most noise related issues, and is most certainly not much use if you are aiming to filter out the racket from your noisy next door neighbours in Kilwinning.

Often sold in tile or sheet form, this "egg box" shaped foam that you often see on sale isn't really designed for blocking out noise, but is really meant for use in music studios and comparable settings, to enhance the sound clarity in a room, and help reduce echoing and reverberation. It isn't the right material preventing sound from travelling around your house, or stopping noise from passing through a wall from a neighbouring building. Seeing as soundproofing foam is spongy and porous, it actually lets sound pass right through it, and hasn't got the density to inhibit it.

It might be that you actually have a music studio in your house in Kilwinning, in which instance this material could be handy for you.

Grants for Soundproofing

Soundproofing Grants Kilwinning

There have been Government grants available in the past for assistance with soundproofing in areas of excessive noise pollution.
