It's crucial to realise how sound travels and is transmitted around a building before it's possible to find techniques to prevent it from happening.

Soundproofing Lee-on-the-Solent Hampshire (PO13)

There basically two ways in which sound can be transmitted around a home:

1. In open spaces by movement of air.

2. By vibration of solid materials and structures.

Sound is also transmitted through water, however unless you're thinking about soundproofing a swimming pool or aquarium we will just focus on its isolation via air and materials.

SOUND THROUGH THE AIR

If you glance around the area or room to be soundproofed and detect ill fitting windows, gaps around doors, heating ducts and even light fittings and electrical sockets, these are all aspects that can cause the transmission of sound. Any sound vibrates the air molecules and this vibration is what we hear as sound. Regardless of the source of the sound; heavy machinery, aircraft, music playing, kids playing or road traffic, all sound is produced and transmitted in precisely the same manner.

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

SOUND THROUGH STRUCTURES AND OBJECTS

Sound waves can additionally be reflected by, absorbed by or transferred to solid objects and structures. Sound will vibrate the floors, ceilings and walls of your rooms, and may lead to a resonation effect that is transferred outside of the room itself. Even in a room that is encased in a dense material that is resistant against sound, such as a concrete lined cellar, the sound can be transmitted and even amplified to other areas of the building.

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

BASIC SOUNDPROOFING STEPS

If you've got bare floorboards or floor surfaces, consider putting down a few rugs or cover with a carpet to help in reducing any sound reflections and vibrations. Not only can such a simple solution help to reduce your problem with noise, but it can also perk up the room. Hanging curtains and wall coverings can also damp down sound vibrations and reflections through windows and walls without the need for a team of professional soundproofing installers.

Another inexpensive and DIY solution is to plug any holes around light fittings, electrical sockets, door frames and windows. Plugging the holes and gaps with an acoustic sealant that can be purchased in some DIY and building material shops, will make a massive difference to sound transmission in your room. Acoustic sealants are inclined to be a bit more pricey than standard sealant products, but the special design has far greater soundproofing performance and is certainly worth the extra cost.

If you're fortunate enough to be redecorating or renovating while tackling your soundproofing requirements, then look into the possibility of putting up an extra skin of plasterboard (also called gypsum board, sheet rock or drywall). Plasterboard is a fairly dense material which is both economical and efficient for soundproofing a room. It's perfect for spaces such as movie rooms, studies or music studios being built within your home in Lee-on-the-Solent. If you're not experienced in fitting plasterboard and framing, it is wise to hire a specialist team to guarantee you the optimal soundproofing improvements from its installation.

Soundproofer Quotes in Lee-on-the-Solent Hampshire

Last but not least you need to check all doors in the room that you're soundproofing. If you have hollow doors installed in your rooms you will find that they can vibrate and will resonate any sound that hits them. Exchanging hollow core doors for solid core will significantly enhance the soundproofing capabilities of an area with only a minimal extra cost.

Some areas, for example those next to busy roads or on aircraft flight paths, have naturally more sound issues and will need other ways to tackle the situation. This is an instance when employing the services of an experienced soundproofing contractor will deliver the best results.

Be ready to answer the four following questions during an evaluation of your soundproofing needs:

  1. What area needs to be soundproofed? i.e. Is it a plasterboard partition room, a brick walled room, a concrete lined basement or a loft conversion.
  2. Is it external sounds or internal noise that you want to tackle? i.e. To stop aircraft, traffic or noisy neighbours, or is it from internally created sounds from a family room or teenagers bedroom for instance.
  3. What is the main point where the sound causes the biggest issues? i.e. Is it coming from the walls, up through the flooring, through windows/doors or down from overhead, or is it a combination of all these factors.
  4. How big is the area requiring soundproofing?

Your answers to such questions will allow you to get estimates for the different solutions available that match your circumstances. There will be distinct solutions for each of the main key areas of the room that you want to soundproof.

PROFESSIONAL SOUNDPROOFING OF FLOORS, WALLS and CEILINGS

There are two key areas that need to be addressed to soundproof any room:

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

Doing this requires an on-site survey to see exactly what areas require developing from the current state.

Conclusions from the survey will include adding some materials of different masses and densities to help increase the soundproofing qualities of the area. Soundproofing can be boosted by the addition of acoustic rubber, foam and other materials which absorbs excess noise and enhances and the sound quality of an area.

The insulation between any voids will be improved to lessen the noise amplification and resonation of these "sound boxes". If you think of a drum for example, you're looking at a noise increasing void enclosed within a resonating material; essentially what you might encounter inside ceiling and floor joists, or wall cavities.

It's better to use combined layers of different densities to absorb unwelcome noises than a solitary layer fabricated from one sort of material. This is due to the fact that the various frequencies are absorbed differently by different kinds of materials, therefore a variety of densities, shapes and layers within your soundproofing armoury are necessary for the best results.

The Building Regulations (Part E) regulate the soundproofing of residential properties, and will need to be followed by any soundproofing specialist in Lee-on-the-Solent. These regulations have the purpose of protecting neighbours in the area from the impact and effect of noise pollution.
