Soundproofer Laindon Essex (SS15): If the level of noise is causing problems in your Laindon home then it may be time to think about putting in some soundproofing to make your lounge, bedroom, studio or home office a peaceful haven from the outside world. Alternatively you may want to soundproof an individual room to keep load noises in, for example in a family room or home cinema, to avoid disturbing others. Either way, soundproofing is crucial for sanity and peace of mind.
First of all we should learn just how is transmitted and travels before we can identify ways to combat any excessive noise intruding into or escaping from your home.
Sound can travel in only two ways:
1. Through the vibration of objects or materials.
2. In open spaces by movement of air.
As whale and dolphin songs can show, sound also travels long distances through water, however unless your aim is to soundproof a pool or aquarium we'll look only at the methods of soundproofing structures and rooms.
SOUND THROUGH THE AIR
Any gaps around doors, open ducting, ill fitted windows and even electrical switches and sockets can all affect the transmission of sound into or outside a room. Any noise vibrates the molecules in the air and this vibration is what we identify and hear as sound. It matters not whether it's busy traffic, music, aircraft, children playing or heavy machinery, they all generate and transfer sound in the same manner.
If you try to imagine your room as a bucket, you are trying to find any leaks that need sealing before you can fill it up with liquid.
SOUND THROUGH OBJECTS AND STRUCTURES
As sound travels through the air by vibration, then it makes sense that this vibration can be reflected by, transferred to or absorbed by different materials. Sound will vibrate the ceilings, walls and floors of your rooms, and can cause a resonation effect which is transmitted beyond the area. Even a room made of solid concrete, such as a cellar, can create a path of resonance which transports any sound waves, and sometimes amplify them, to other areas of a dwelling.
How should we stop these vibrations and sounds affecting other folks? Soundproofing is the remedy.
SIMPLE STEPS IN SOUNDPROOFING
A bare floor surface resonates more than one covered with a carpet or rug. Such a straightforward solution can help to damp down any noise and enhance the room to boot. Wall coverings or window drapes can also be employed to enhance soundproofing and are simple to fit and maintain.
Search for areas around the room where sound can come in or escape from; light fittings, sockets, door frames and windows, and seal any gaps or holes. There are some unique acoustic sealants available on the market which absorb the sound waves, and do not transmit them to surrounding materials. There could be a considerable difference in price when compared to a normal sealant, however the soundproofing capabilities are far better and can make a big difference to a room.
For anyone redecorating a room or renovating a property, look at the soundproofing properties of adding an extra layer of soundboard or plasterboard, (also called drywall, gyproc or sheet rock), while you are tackling this project. This is an economic and efficient soundproofing material due to its dense nature. It's superb if you're putting in a home office, home cinema or games room in your property in Laindon. If you're not experienced in fitting studding and plasterboard, it is advisable to hire a professional team to guarantee you the optimum soundproofing improvements from its installation.
The final DIY solution is to consider the doors within your home in Laindon. Hollow doors are relatively cheap although their soundproofing capabilities are far from perfect. If you are able to change to solid core doors you will find it enhances your soundproofing at very little extra cost.
PROFESSIONAL SOUNDPROOFING SOLUTIONS LAINDON
If the level of sound pollution is extreme in your location, on account of aircraft passing overhead, or traffic noise from a nearby road for instance, then more serious methods to reduce the excess noise will have to be explored. The best solution for resolving these problems is to call in an established acoustic and soundproofing contractor from your local area.
They will ask the following four questions during the initial analysis of your needs:
- How big is the area that you want to have soundproofed?
- Is it external noise or internal sounds that you would like to target? i.e. To suppress noisy neighbours, traffic noise or aircraft, or is it from internally generated sounds from a home cinema or teenagers bedroom for example.
- From what direction does the sound seem to be coming? i.e. Through the windows, floor, doors, ceiling or walls or a mixture of all of these.
- What kind of room or property do you need to soundproof? Is it a brick wall, a stud partition wall or a fully lined concrete wall etc.
A professional soundproofing contractor in Laindon will take into consideration all of these factors to offer solutions to your noise issues for various budgets. They'll provide different methods for soundproofing each of the trouble spots within your room.
PROFESSIONAL SOUNDPROOFING OF CEILINGS, WALLS and FLOORS
There are two areas that need to be addressed to soundproof any space:
- The absorption of sound will need to be increased.
- Lower the effect of sound amplification, reflection and vibration by solid surfaces.
Doing this requires a site survey to ascertain exactly what areas need developing from the present state.
Solutions identified by the survey will probably include the addition of materials with different densities to help maximise the soundproofing properties of the room. This extra mass will help to increase absorption of the sound energy by means of acoustic rubber or foam to gain the maximum noise reduction impacts.
Insulation between any existing voids will be improved or upgraded to lessen the noise amplification and resonation of these "sound boxes". If you visualise a drum for example, you're looking at a noise amplifying void enclosed within a resonating material; fundamentally what you might find within floor and ceiling joists, or cavities in walls.
Soundproofing is improved if multiple layers of different density materials are utilised, rather than installing a single kind of material. The diverse materials will isolate different frequencies of sound and provide a more rounded feeling and auditory experience to a room.
Part E of the Building Regulations regulate the soundproofing of residential properties, and will have to be followed by any installation company in Laindon. 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.
Trade organisations in the soundproofing industry who provide guidance, training and qualifications are the Institute of Acoustics and the Association of Noise Consultants. Any Laindon firm displaying IOA or ANC accreditation has been vetted to make certain they provide the highest standards, quality and reliability of work within the industry.

AMW (Acoustic Mineral Wool)
Having a number of different applications for your noise reduction requirements, acoustic mineral wool (AMW) is one of the most versatile products on the market for the soundproofing of properties in Laindon. When placed in the cavity spaces of ceilings, floors and walls, acoustic mineral wool is designed specifically to enhance acoustic performance, absorb sound waves and dampen vibration.
Normally available in "slabs" of 600mm x 1200mm, AMW also comes in different thicknesses (25 millimetres, 50 millimetres, 75 millimetres and 100 millimetres). AMW is frequently made of recycled materials (about 20%), is chemically inert, and is non-combustible. It does not react with metal wall ties, brickwork, masonry, plastics, or other materials or substances that it comes into contact with, nor does it encourage the growth of bacteria, mould or fungi.
When employed as a sound absorption filler between suspended ceilings, stud partitions and flooring joists, AMW is especially effective, and it's recognised in the construction industry for its thermal, fire and acoustic insulation attributes. To adhere to Part E of the Building Regulations when it comes to separating walls and floors, AMW can be used alongside other soundproofing products.
Soundproofing Foam Laindon
It appears from some simple keyword research that one of the most common searches on Google and Bing is for "soundproofing foam" and for local homeowners, "soundproofing foam Laindon". This is somewhat baffling, as it implies a basic lack of awareness by local homeowners who seem to be under the impression that their noise problems can be resolved by installing acoustic foam.
I'm not trying to rain on anyone's parade, but the fact is that soundproofing foam isn't likely to be the answer you're looking for, and will definitely not eliminate the din caused by noisy neighbours in Laindon.
The familiar "egg box" shaped foam, that often seems to be the trademark of soundproofing, was not actually developed for blocking out noise, but has the purpose of reducing resonation and echoing in music studios and similar spaces, where it can also improve the acoustic performance of a room. Soundproofing foam of this sort is not effective in stopping sound from travelling freely around your home, or stopping noise from passing through a neighbours wall. Given that it's porous, soundproofing foam absorbs sound and allows sound to pass through, as opposed to stopping it.
If however, you're creating a music studio, this may be a valuable product for you to use, and can be bought in different thicknesses (usually 25 millimetre and 50 millimetre), and in various tile and sheet sizes.
Soundproofing Underlay Laindon
A great way of adding a bit of soundproofing to your Laindon home, without any major disruption, is to install soundproofing underlay. Both concrete and wooden floors are suitable for these acoustic underlays, and they can be installed beneath engineered wood, vinyl planks, carpet and laminate.
Where there's an issue with impact rather than airborne noise, acoustic underlay is especially effective. In recent times, a rise in the popularity of "harder" floor finishes has contributed to more problems with impact noise in lots of Laindon properties. Upstairs rooms are the main source of such problems, with kids stomping around, moving furniture and general footfall being frequent concerns.
Although some carpet suppliers might try to sell you regular carpet underlay, claiming that it has soundproofing attributes, this should not be confused with authentic acoustic or soundproofing underlay. If your noise issues are significant, be sure to invest in a decent acoustic underlay from a professional vendor.
Whilst the installation of acoustic underlay can be very effective in lowering impact noise within a property, airborne noise such as constant talking, booming televisions and loud music, can be a whole new ball game, with some underlays being far better than others and enjoying differing levels of success. Talking about the precise types of noise you are attempting to minimise with the soundproofing specialist or supplier is vital, and this should enable you to pick out the correct underlay for your needs.
Searching On the Web For a Soundproofer
Searching on the internet is the strategy that most people in Laindon use to look for any kind of tradesmen these days. Instant and specific results are the main advantage of using Google, Ask, Yahoo or Bing, which exist for this particular purpose. What you will soon realise is that these principal search engines display results which are rather obscure. In this particular scenario you'll be typing something along the lines of "Laindon soundproofing", "soundproofing in Laindon", "soundproofing Laindon" or "soundproofing near me" to track down the ideal person.
It is a good idea to understand that the top 4 results are very often paid advertising and most of the other listings on page 1 will be directories like Cyclex, Yell, Yelp or ThreeBestRated, or listings for large lead generating sites such as TrustaTrader, Quotatis, Checkatrade, Rated People, My Hammer or Bidvine. For any soundproofing companies in Laindon who have got a website, the likelihood is they'll be hidden away on the 2nd or 3rd pages of the search engine listings, and you'll have to look beyond the first page alone. Trader vetting portals such as Checkatrade or Rated People are still handy though, and you can make full use of their informative services to read reviews, check out client appraisals and get free quotes, in view of the fact that there are soundproofing installers on there that do not even have a web site.
