It's crucial for us to learn how sound travels around a structure before it's possible to identify methods to prevent it from occurring.

Soundproofing Kingsteignton Devon (TQ12)

Sound basically moves in two ways throughout your home:

1. By the vibration of air molecules.

2. Through the vibration of objects or materials.

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


If you check out the space to be soundproofed and detect gaps around doors, heating ducts, ill fitting windows and even electrical sockets and switches, these are all causes of sound transmission. What we hear and identify as sound is in fact the vibration of air molecules reaching our ear drums. Regardless of the source of the sound; traffic, music playing, machinery, kids playing or aircraft, all sound is produced and transmitted in exactly the same way.

Any holes within a room can be regarded as leaks and will need to be plugged.


If sound moves through the air by vibration, then it stands to reason that this vibration can be absorbed by, transferred to or reflected by different solid materials. Sound can be moved around a dwelling from its original source by the vibration of ceilings, walls and floors. Even in a room that's built from a dense material which is resistant to sound, such as a concrete lined basement, the sound can be transmitted and possibly even amplified to other parts of the building.

So, what is the best way to stop this sound transference having an impact on other people? Soundproofing obviously.


Give some thought to covering a bare floor, which resonates and reflects sound, with a rug or carpet. The rugs or other soft coverings will help soak up noises but can also add a touch of style to a previously bare room. Hanging curtains and wall coverings can also prevent sound reflections and vibrations through windows and walls without the need to bring in a professional team of soundproofing specialists.

Finding and sealing any holes or gaps in your room, think electrical sockets, door frames, light fittings and windows, is also a simple task for a competent DIY enthusiast. Plugging the gaps and holes with a special acoustic sealant found in many DIY centres and builders merchants, can make a big difference to sound transmission in your room. There could be a little difference in price in comparison with a standard sealant, however the soundproofing abilities are a lot better and will make an enormous difference to a room's level of soundproofing.

If the room you are working on is a blank canvas and you're doing the soundproofing as you renovate or decorate, look at putting up a layer of plasterboard or soundboard, (also called gyproc, drywall or sheet rock). This is a fairly dense type of boarding which is a perfect and economic soundproofing material. It's ideal for areas such as studios, home cinemas or studies that are being built within a property. It's far better to hire a certified Kingsteignton tradesman to install plasterboard unless you've some experience in this type of work.

The final DIY solution is to check out the doors within your property in Kingsteignton. Whilst hollow doors are light and relatively cheap, their soundproofing capabilities aren't the best. Solid doors, whilst a bit more pricey, can do wonders for improving the soundproofing in a room.


If the sound pollution is high in your location, because of traffic noise from a busy road nearby, or aircraft passing overhead for example, then more severe ways to reduce the excess noise will have to be explored. This is an instance when the services of a professional soundproofing service will bring the most effective results.

The initial questions you should be asked are:

  1. How large is the room that needs soundproofing?
  2. From what direction does the sound appear to be coming? i.e. Through the doors, ceiling, floor, windows or walls or a mix of all.
  3. What is the space you want to soundproof constructed from? (i.e. a plasterboarded partition wall, a brick wall or a fully lined concrete wall).
  4. What noise or sounds are you wanting to reduce? i.e. External things such as passing trains, neighbours, street noise etc, or internal sounds from a home cinema or teenagers bedroom.

Your answers to these questions will allow you to get quotes for the various available solutions to suit your circumstances. Solutions will vary in line with the different materials required for each of the problem areas within your property.


There are two key areas that must be dealt with to soundproof any room or space:

  1. Improve and update the amount of sound absorption.
  2. Lessen the effect of sound reflection, vibration and amplification by solid surfaces.

Doing this requires a site survey to see exactly what areas need enhancing from the current condition.

A specialist will investigate the different methods for adding mass and density to the trouble spots. The addition of acoustic rubbers and foams of varying mass and density will help to absorb noise and reduce transmission and reflection sources.

Any voids in the area might need some form of muffling material to be placed between them to lessen sound resonation. If you think of a drum or wooden cajon, you are looking at a noise amplifying void surrounded by a resonating material; basically what you might encounter within ceiling and floor joists, or wall cavities.

Soundproofing abilities are maximised if different densities and materials are utilised, as opposed to installing only one kind of material. This is because different frequencies are affected by different types of materials, therefore a variety of shapes, layers and densities within your soundproofing armoury are required.

All soundproofing contractors in Kingsteignton must follow the regulations for residential buildings specified by the Building Regulations (Part E). Such regulations have to be followed so as to safeguard yourself and neighbours from the harmful effects of sound pollution.

The Institute of Acoustics (IOA) and the Association of Noise Consultants (ANC) are trade organisations who offer training, qualifications and are representative of the very best in contractors and companies that offer soundproofing services. Any Kingsteignton contractor bearing ANC or IOA accreditation will have been appraised to make certain they offer the highest reliability, quality and standards of workmanship within the soundproofing industry.
