It's important for us to understand how sound is transmitted around a building before it's possible to identify strategies to prevent it from occurring.

Soundproofing Kingsnorth Kent (TN23)

Sound is able to travel in only two ways:

1. Through the vibration of objects or materials.

2. The vibration or air molecules through the air.

As dolphin and whale songs can show, sound also penetrates long distance through water, but unless your intention is to soundproof a pool or aquarium we will just look at the techniques of soundproofing rooms and buildings.

SOUND TRAVELLING THROUGH THE AIR

Sounds can be transferred into and out of a room through gaps around doors, ill fitting windows, open ducting and even electrical sockets and switches. All sounds and noise will initiate the vibration and movement of the molecules in the air, and this is what we hear. No matter the source of the noise; kids playing, music playing, busy traffic, heavy machinery or aeroplanes, all sounds are created and transmitted in exactly the same way.

If you can imagine your room as if it were a bucket, you're trying to identify any leaks that need sealing before you fill it up with liquid.

SOUND TRAVELLING THROUGH OBJECTS AND STRUCTURES

As sound travels through the air by vibrations, then it seems reasonable to assume that those vibrations can be transferred to, reflected by or absorbed by different materials. Sound will cause vibrations in the walls, ceilings and floors of your rooms, and may lead to a resonation effect that is transferred beyond the area. Care must be taken with brick or solid concrete walls, such as in cellars or basements, since sound can be transmitted and amplified to other rooms in your home.

How do we stop these sounds having a detrimental impact on other people? Soundproofing obviously.

SIMPLE SOUNDPROOFING STEPS

A bare floor surface is more resonant than one covered with a carpet or rug. Not only will such a simple solution reduce your noise pollution problem, it can also spruce up the room. Hanging wall coverings and curtains can also prevent sound vibrations and reflections through walls and windows without the need for a team of professional soundproofing installers.

Look for areas in your rooms where noise can escape or come in; door frames, light fittings, windows and electrical sockets, and seal up any gaps or holes. Sealing the holes and gaps with an acoustic sealant found in some DIY centres and builders merchants, will make a huge difference to how your room sounds. They are a tad more expensive than normal sealants or plaster, but are worthwhile for their soundproofing qualities.

For those of you redecorating a room or renovating a property, look at the soundproofing gains of adding another skin of soundboard or plasterboard, (also called drywall, sheet rock or gyproc), whilst you are undertaking the project. This is an economic and efficient soundproofing material because of its dense nature. If you are putting in a movie room, music studio or study then plasterboard will help to minimise sound transmission from and to that room, and can be decorated easily after installation. If you're not familiar with putting up studding and plasterboard, it is wise to employ a specialist Kingsnorth contractor to guarantee the optimal soundproofing benefits from its installation.

Soundproofer Quotes in Kingsnorth Kent

The last solution for do-it-yourself enthusiasts is to look at the doors in your property in Kingsnorth. If you've got hollow doors fitted to rooms you will discover that they can resonate and vibrate with any sound that is aimed at them. Solid doors, while a bit more expensive, can have a sizeable effect on the soundproofing qualities of a room.

The initial questions you will be asked are:

  1. What are the specific sounds that you need to be soundproofed? i.e. Is it sounds from inside your house such as a music room or family room, or external noises such as street noise, neighbours, trains, etc.
  2. How large is the space that you wish to be soundproofed?
  3. Precisely where is the primary source of noise emanating from? i.e. Above, through the ceiling, floors, doors, windows or walls, or a combination of everything.
  4. What room needs to be soundproofed? i.e. Is it a concrete lined cellar, a stud partitioned room, a brick walled room or an attic conversion.

Your answers to these questions will enable you to get quotes for the various available solutions to suit your needs. They'll provide you with different strategies to soundproof each of the trouble spots within your home.

PROFESSIONAL SOUNDPROOFING OF CEILINGS, WALLS and FLOORS

There are 2 key areas that must be addressed to soundproof any room:

  1. Improve sound absorption.
  2. Reduce the ways that sound is transmitted through and reflected by hard surfaces.

A site survey is going to be necessary to look at the areas to be improved.

Solutions identified by the survey will probably include the addition of materials of different masses and densities to help improve the soundproofing capabilities of the space. This additional mass will help to enhance absorption of the sound energy by the use of acoustic rubber or foam to gain the maximum sound reduction impacts.

Insulation between any existing voids will be upgraded to lessen the noise amplification and resonation of these "sound boxes". If you imagine such spaces as similar to a drum or wooden cajon then you can see that by leaving floor or ceiling joist spaces and wall cavities open, you're creating a noise amplifying area.

It is far better to use combined layers of different densities to deaden unwanted noises than a solitary layer made of one material. The various materials will eliminate different noise frequencies and provide a more harmonious feeling and auditory experience to a room.

Any soundproofing contractor in Kingsnorth will have to follow the the Building Regulations (Part E), if dealing with a residential property. This set of regulations is a legally binding requirement to protect your neighbours and yourself from the negative effects of noise pollution in a setting where folks work and live.

The Institute of Acoustics (IOA) and the Association of Noise Consultants (ANC) are trade associations who offer qualifications and training, and represent the best in contractors and companies that offer soundproofing solutions. Only those Kingsnorth firms that have been vetted and approved by these trade associations for reliability, quality and professionalism are permitted to display the logo.

Soundproofing Foam Kingsnorth

I recently thought I would look into what property owners in Kingsnorth are searching for online with regards to soundproofing, and it would appear that when searching on Google and other search engines one of the most commonplace requests is for "soundproofing foam". And from a local point of view searches include "soundproofing foam Kingsnorth". That is really quite worrying, because it indicates that Kingsnorth property owners are assuming that acoustic foam products are suitable for reducing their noise problems.

I don't wish to rain on anyone's parade, but soundproofing foam isn't really a resolution for most noise related problems, and is certainly not much use if you're hoping to block out the din from noisy neighbours in Kingsnorth.

The "egg box" shaped foam that you regularly see for sale in tile or sheet form isn't actually intended for blocking out noise, but is really intended for use in music studios and similar environments, to reduce echoing and resonation and improve the acoustic performance of a room. Soundproofing foam of this sort isn't good at preventing noise from travelling around your house, or preventing sound from penetrating a party wall. Acoustic foam is porous and doesn't have the density to block noise, it absorbs it and lets sound pass through it.

Nonetheless, if you are engaged on creating a music studio, this foam might be useful for you, and can be obtained in different sheet sizes and various thicknesses (typically 25mm and 50mm).

Grants for Soundproofing

Soundproofing Grants Kingsnorth

Before you start on any soundproofing work in Kingsnorth it might be a good idea to look through the Government portal for grants and compensation schemes that might be currently available.
