Before we can identify strategies for reducing sound pollution, it would be advantageous to understand how sound travels and is transmitted.

Soundproofing Kingsbridge Devon (TQ7)

Sound is able to move in only two ways:

1. The vibration or air molecules through the air.

2. Through objects by the vibration of the material.

Although sound can also travel through liquids, unless you're wanting to eliminate sounds from a pool or aquarium, we will just be concerned at how to reduce sound levels in rooms within a building.

SOUND TRAVELLING THROUGH THE AIR

If you look around the room or area to be soundproofed and discover heating ducts, gaps around doors, single glazed windows and even light fittings and electrical sockets, these are all causes of sound transmission. All noise and sounds will create movement and vibration of the molecules in the air, and this is what we identify and hear. All sounds are transmitted through the air in the same manner; it does not matter if it's passing aircraft, children playing, music, machinery or traffic that produces the sound.

If you can visualise your room as a bucket, you're trying to find any leaks to seal before you can fill it with water.

SOUND TRAVELLING THROUGH STRUCTURES AND OBJECTS

If sound travels through the air by vibrations, then it seems reasonable to assume that such vibrations can be absorbed by, transferred to or reflected by various solid materials. Sound will vibrate the walls, floors and ceilings of your rooms, and can result in a resonation effect which is transmitted outside of the room itself. Even a solid concrete room, such as a cellar, can produce a resonance path which channels sound waves, and even amplify them, to other parts of a building.

However, how can these effects be prevented from creating an issue? The solution is naturally, soundproofing!

SIMPLE STEPS IN SOUNDPROOFING

If you've got bare floors or floorboards, 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 soak up sounds and can also add a bit of style to an otherwise bare room. Hanging curtains and wall coverings can also prevent sound vibrations and reflections through windows and walls without the need to hire a team of professional soundproofing installers.

Another inexpensive and DIY solution is to plug any holes or gaps around door frames, electrical sockets, light fittings and windows. There are special acoustic sealants available to buy that suppress the sound waves, and don't transfer them to surrounding materials. There could be a considerable difference in the price when compared to a normal sealant, however the soundproofing capabilities are significantly better and can make a big difference to a room.

For those of you renovating a property or redecorating a room, evaluate the soundproofing gains of adding an extra layer of plasterboard or soundboard, (also called gyproc, drywall or sheet rock), while you're tackling this project. Plasterboard is a very dense material which is both economical and efficient in soundproofing an area. It's great if you're setting up a studio, study or movie room in your property in Kingsbridge. If you are not familiar with putting up plasterboard and studding, it is generally best to use a professional team to guarantee the optimum soundproofing improvements from its use.

Soundproofer Quotes in Kingsbridge Devon

One last easy soundproofing treatment is to examine the materials from which your doors are made. Even though hollow doors are lightweight and comparatively affordable, their soundproofing attributes aren't anything to write home about. If you're able to change to solid wood doors you will find it boosts your soundproofing more cheaply than some other solutions.

PROFESSIONAL SOUNDPROOFING KINGSBRIDGE

Some homes, such as those beside busy roads or on aircraft flight paths, naturally have more problems with sound pollution and will need other ways to solve the dilemma. This is when the services of a professional soundproofing service will bring the greatest results.

Soundproofer Near Kingsbridge Devon

The first questions you will be asked are:

  1. Which is the main spot where the noise causes the biggest issues? i.e. Is it coming up through the floors, from the walls, down from overhead or through windows/doors, or is it a mixture of all these things.
  2. What are the dimensions of the space or room that needs to be soundproofed?
  3. What noise or sounds are you wanting to reduce? i.e. External issues such as road noise, trains, neighbours etc, or sounds inside your home from a family room or music room.
  4. What type of room or property do you need to soundproof? Does it have a fully lined concrete wall, a stud partition wall or a brick wall etc.

A specialist soundproofing installation company in Kingsbridge will look into all of these points to provide remedies for your sound issues for various budgets. They will provide different strategies for soundproofing each of the troublesome areas within your home.

PROFESSIONAL SOUNDPROOFING OF FLOORS, CEILINGS and WALLS

To soundproof any type of room requires two key approaches:

  1. Lower the effect of sound reflection, vibration and amplification by hard surfaces.
  2. The absorption of sound needs to be improved.

To effectively analyse the areas that need improvement, an on-site survey should be completed by a soundproofing expert.

Solutions identified by the survey will include adding some materials of different densities and masses to help improve the soundproofing capabilities of the area. Soundproofing will be boosted by the installation of acoustic rubber and foam which will absorb excess noise and enhance and a room's sound quality.

Insulation between any existing voids will be improved to lessen the sound amplification and resonation of these "sound boxes". If you imagine these spaces like a drum then you'll see that by leaving wall cavities and floor or ceiling joist spaces empty, you are effectively creating a sound amplifying area.

It is far better to use mixed layers of different densities to soak up unwelcome sounds than a single layer made of one soundproofing material. This is because different materials react in different ways with various frequencies and will deliver a better acoustic solution to your soundproofing exploits.

All soundproofing specialists in Kingsbridge will be needing to follow the requirements for domestic properties as laid out in Part E of the Building Regulations. This set of regulations is a legally binding requirement to protect yourself and neighbours from the effects of sound pollution in an environment where people work and live.

The Association of Noise Consultants (ANC) and the Institute of Acoustics (IOA) are trade organisations who offer training, qualifications and are representative of the best in contractors and companies who provide soundproofing services. Only those Kingsbridge businesses that have been vetted and approved by these associations for quality, professionalism and reliability are allowed to bear the logo.

Soundproofing Foam Kingsbridge

It seems from doing some simple keyphrase research that a frequent search on Google and Yahoo is for "soundproofing foam" and for home and business owners in Kingsbridge, maybe "soundproofing foam Kingsbridge". That's really quite concerning, because it indicates that Kingsbridge homeowners are assuming that acoustic foam products are suitable for solving their noise issues.

It's not my intention to rain on anyone's parade, but most soundproofing issues cannot be helped by acoustic foam, and if your objective is to reduce the din caused by noisy next door neighbours in Kingsbridge, you will have to look someplace else.

The foam in the form of an "egg box" that you often see for sale in tile or sheet form is not actually intended for blocking out noise, but was really developed for use in music studios and similar spaces, to reduce echoing and reverberation and improve the acoustic performance of a room. This type of product is not effective for stopping noise from penetrating a wall from a neighbouring property, or even as a barrier to stop sound from travelling around your property and being a nuisance. Because soundproofing foam is spongy and porous, it actually allows sound to pass through it, and has not got the density to stop it.

It might be that you actually have a music room in your home in Kingsbridge, in which instance this foam may be extremely useful for you.

Acoustic or Soundproofing Underlay Kingsbridge

If you are experiencing lots of troublesome noise in your Kingsbridge home, an effective way to lessen this without too much disruption is by installing some soundproofing underlay on your floors. This can be used on timber or concrete floors and can be installed under vinyl planks, engineered wood, carpet, laminate, and other types of flooring.

When your issue is mostly impact noise and not airborne noise, soundproofing underlay is a particularly effective treatment. A lot of homes in Kingsbridge have a major issue with impact noise, and this is largely down to the popularity of hard floor finishes, which are more commonplace right now. Such things as kids stomping around, moving furniture and general footfall, are the form of noise we are referring to here.

You should not confuse acoustic underlay with standard carpet underlay, although some carpet stores may attempt to sell you this with claims of soundproofing attributes. If you're encountering severe noise issues in your property in Kingsbridge, visit a trustworthy supplier and buy a decent acoustic underlay that is right for your specific circumstances.

While it is a valuable product for impact noise, soundproofing underlay has varying degrees of success when it comes to dealing with airborne noise problems like booming televisions, deafening music and incessant talking, and some products are definitely much better than others. Before picking an underlay you should chat with the soundproofing expert or supplier about your specific situation, and identify the exact types of noise you are seeking to reduce.

Acoustic Mineral Wool (AMW)

Having a number of different applications for your sound absorption needs, acoustic mineral wool (AMW) is one of the most useful materials available for the soundproofing of properties in Kingsbridge. Specifically designed to be installed in the cavity spaces of ceilings, floors and walls, acoustic mineral wool is effective in improving acoustic performance, absorbing sound waves and reducing reverberation.

Acoustic Mineral Wool Kingsbridge

Readily available in 25mm, 50mm, 75mm and 100mm thicknesses, acoustic mineral wool usually comes in 1200mm x 600mm slabs. Often partly made with recycled raw materials (around 20%), acoustic mineral wool is chemically inert, and is non-combustible. It doesn't have a reaction with plastics, metal wall ties, masonry, brickwork, or other substances or materials that it comes into contact with, nor does it encourage the development of fungi, bacteria or mould.

Acoustic mineral wool is particularly effective as a sound absorption filler when used between flooring joists, stud partitioning and suspended ceilings, and is widely used in the building sector for fire, thermal and acoustic insulation. To conform to Part E of the Building Regulations in relation to separating walls and floors, acoustic mineral wool can be used side by side with other sound absorbing materials.
