Lightwater Soundproofing & Noise Reduction Services

Soundproofer Lightwater Surrey (GU18): If the level of noise is causing problems in your property in Lightwater then it might be time to look at installing soundproofing to make your bedroom, living room, studio or home office a retreat of peace and quiet from your neighbours and the outside world. In some cases you could be investigating soundproofing so you don't disturb others from a music studio, children's room or home cinema. In any event, soundproofing is crucial for your peace of mind.

Initially it would be advantageous to learn precisely how sound travels and is transmitted before we are able to identify ways to eliminate any excessive noise escaping from or intruding into your property.

Soundproofing Lightwater Surrey (GU18)

Sound basically moves in two ways around a room:

1. By the vibration of air molecules.

2. Through objects by the vibration of the material.

Despite the fact that sound also travels through liquids, unless you're wanting to isolate sounds from an aquarium or pool, we'll just be interested in how to reduce sound levels in the rooms of a building.


Any open air-ducting, gaps around doors, ill fitting windows and even electrical sockets and light fittings can all be responsible for the transmission of sound into or outside a room. What we hear and identify as sound is essentially the vibration of air molecules reaching our ear drums. No matter the source of the sound; heavy machinery, aeroplanes, traffic, kids playing or music playing, all sounds are generated and transferred in precisely the same way.

Any openings in the room can be regarded as leaks and will need to be closed off.


If sound travels through the air by vibrations, then it seems logical that such vibrations can be transferred to, reflected by or absorbed by various solid materials. Sound will vibrate the walls, floors and ceilings of your rooms, and can result in a resonating effect that is transmitted outside the area. Even in a room that is built from a dense material which is somewhat resistant to sound, such as a concrete cellar, the sound can be reflected and even amplified to other parts of the property.

How should we prevent these sounds and vibrations affecting other people? Soundproofing is the remedy.


Consider covering a bare floor surface, which resonates and reflects sound, with a rug or carpet. Such a simple and straightforward solution can spruce up a room and help dampen down any noise to boot. Curtains, in particular substantial blackout types, can also stifle any sounds from invading or escaping a room, cost-effectively and without the need for specialist soundproofing.

Another cost-effective and do-it-yourself solution is to plug any gaps around light fittings, sockets, doors and windows. It is possible to purchase professional acoustic sealants in many building supply stores that repress the transmission of sound by absorbing the sound waves. Acoustic sealants are inclined to be slightly more expensive than standard sealant products, but their outstanding soundproofing qualities far outweigh the small additional cost.

For anybody renovating a property or redecorating a room, look at the soundproofing gains of adding a supplementary layer of plasterboard or soundboard, (also known as drywall, sheet rock or gypsum board), whilst you're tackling this work. Plasterboard is a very dense material that's both economical and efficient for soundproofing purposes. It's perfect for spaces such as music studios, home offices or home cinemas which are being built within a property. If you are not familiar with fitting plasterboard and framing, it is wise to hire a professional Lightwater contractor to guarantee you the best soundproofing benefits from its installation.

Soundproofer Quotes in Lightwater Surrey

Last but not least you should check out all doors in the room that you're soundproofing. If you have hollow doors installed in your rooms you'll find that they can vibrate and will resonate any sound that hits them. Solid doors, whilst a tad more expensive, can have a sizeable effect on the soundproofing capabilities of a room.


If the sound pollution is excessive in your area, due to aircraft flying over, or traffic noise from a busy road for example, then more serious methods to deal with the excess noise may have to be explored. You will get the best soundproofing results by using the expertise of an experienced soundproofing specialist.

Soundproofer Near Lightwater Surrey

Expect to answer the four following questions during an investigation of your particular soundproofing needs:

  1. Exactly where is the primary source of the noise coming from? i.e. Overhead, through the walls, floors, windows, ceiling or doors, or a mixture.
  2. What are the specific sounds that you need to be soundproofed? i.e. Is it sounds from within your house such as a music studio or family room, or external noises such as road noise, next door neighbours, overflying aircraft, etc.
  3. What is the area you wish to soundproof made from? (i.e. a fully lined concrete wall, a brick wall or a plasterboarded partition wall).
  4. What are the dimensions of the room or area that needs to be soundproofed?

A specialist soundproofing installer in Lightwater will look into all these points to provide solutions to your noise problems over a range of budgets. Remedies will vary in line with the different materials required for each of the main trouble spots within your home.


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

  1. Minimise sound reverberation and amplifying.
  2. Update and increase the amount of sound absorption.

To accurately assess the areas that require improvement, a site survey must be performed by a soundproofing company in Lightwater.

The installer will figure out ways of adding materials with different densities and masses to enhance the sound absorption properties of the area. This additional mass will help to improve absorption of the sound energy through the use of acoustic rubber or foam to gain the maximum impact of noise reduction.

Any uninsulated voids in the room may require some kind of deadening material to be inserted between them to lower noise resonation. If you visualise a drum for instance, you are looking at a noise amplifying void surrounded by a resonating material; in essence what you might find inside floor and ceiling joists, or wall cavities.

Combined layers of differing density and mass materials work better at absorbing noise than a single material layer of one kind. The diverse materials will reduce different sound frequencies and deliver a more harmonious feeling and auditory experience to a room.

Any soundproofing specialist in Lightwater will have to comply with the the Building Regulations (Part E), if dealing with a domestic property. Part E of the Building Regulations is a requirement in law to protect your neighbours and yourself from the negative effects of noise pollution in an area where people live and work.

The Association of Noise Consultants (ANC) and the Institute of Acoustics (IOA) are recognised trade associations who provide qualifications and training, and represent the very best in companies and contractors who provide soundproofing solutions. Any Lightwater company displaying IOA or ANC accreditation will have been vetted to ensure they offer the highest reliability, standards and quality of work within the soundproofing industry.

Acoustic or Soundproofing Underlay Lightwater

Installing a soundproofing underlay is a good way of adding some extra soundproofing to your Lightwater home without the need for any unwelcome disruption. These acoustic underlays can be successfully used on both timber and concrete floors, and beneath carpet, laminate, vinyl planks and engineered wood floor coverings.

Where there's lots of impact noise rather than airborne noise, soundproofing underlay is particularly beneficial. In recent times, a rise in the popularity of "hard" floor finishes has triggered more problems with impact noise in many Lightwater households. Rooms upstairs are the main origin of such problems, with shifting furniture, kids running around and general foot traffic being typical sorts of irritating noise.

Do not be fooled by unscrupulous carpet merchants, who might attempt to palm you off with standard carpet underlay as a solution to your noise related issues - this sort of product should not be mistaken for genuine soundproofing underlay. Ensure that you buy a good quality acoustic underlay, if you've got real issues with noise.

Whilst impact noise can be substantially lowered with the help of acoustic underlay, it has varying levels of success with regards to deafening music, shouting and booming TV's, and other airborne noise problems. You should discuss the exact sorts of noise you're striving to reduce with the soundproofing specialist or supplier, and this should enable you to pick the right underlay product for your soundproofing needs.

Acoustic Mineral Wool (AMW)

AMW (otherwise known as acoustic mineral wool) is one of the most versatile materials available for the soundproofing of properties in Lightwater and has a number of applications for your sound absorption requirements. Designed specifically for installation in the cavity spaces of ceilings, walls and floors, acoustic mineral wool is effective in improving acoustic performance, absorbing airborne sound and reducing reverberation.

Acoustic Mineral Wool Lightwater

Typically available in "slabs" of 1200mm x 600mm, AMW also comes in several thicknesses (25 millimetres, 50 millimetres, 75 millimetres and 100 millimetres). Often partly made with recycled materials, AMW is non-combustible and is chemically inert. It does not encourage the growth of mould, fungi or bacteria, nor does it have a reaction with any materials or substances that it comes into contact with (i.e. masonry, metal wall ties, brickwork or plastics).

AMW is particularly effective as a sound absorption infill when used between stud partitions, suspended ceilings and floor joists, and is widely recognised in the construction sector for acoustic, fire and thermal insulation. When used together with other soundproofing products, AMW can help in adhering to The Building Regulations (Part E) in relation to separating floors and walls.

Soundproofing Foam Lightwater

It seems from some simple keyword research that a popular search on Google is for "soundproofing foam" and for householders in Lightwater, maybe "soundproofing foam Lightwater". Now, that is quite interesting as this would imply that local home owners are turning to soundproofing foam products as an answer to their noise problems in Lightwater.

It is not my intention to be the bearer of bad news, but most soundproofing issues cannot be solved with this product, and if your objective is to reduce the din caused by noisy neighbours in Lightwater, you will need to look someplace else.

The customary "egg box" shaped foam, that appears to be the hallmark of soundproofing, is not actually designed for blocking out noise, but has the purpose of reducing echoing and amplifying in music studios and comparable spaces, where it can also enhance the sound clarity in a room. This product isn't effective for stopping noise from travelling through a party wall, or even moving around your house and causing annoyance. Acoustic foam is in fact porous and doesn't have the consistency to block sound, it absorbs it and allows sound to pass through it.

This foam product may however be extremely useful for you if you are creating a music studio in your home in Lightwater, and if this is the case you'll discover that it can be purchased in different thicknesses and tile sizes.
