Soundproofer Lindfield West Sussex (RH16): If you're worried by the amount of noise in your Lindfield property, be it in a home office, bedroom, studio or lounge, you need to look at putting in some soundproofing. In some cases you may be looking at soundproofing so you don't disturb others from a home cinema, music studio or family room. Either way, soundproofing is important for peace of mind.

First it might help if we understand how sound travels and is transmitted before we are able to find ways to combat any sound intrusion or escape from your property.

Soundproofing Lindfield West Sussex (RH16)

Sound can travel in only two ways:

1. Through the vibration of objects or materials.

2. By the vibration of air molecules.

Despite the fact that sound also travels through liquids, unless you're eager to eliminate sounds from a pool or aquarium, we'll just be concerned with how to reduce sound transmission in the rooms of a property.

SOUND TRAVELLING THROUGH THE AIR

Sound can be transferred into and out of a room through gaps around doors, ill fitted windows, open ducting and even electrical sockets and light fittings. All noise vibrates the molecules in the air and these vibrations are what we hear as sound. All sounds are moved through the air in the same way; it matters not if it's music, machinery, kids playing, aircraft or nearby traffic that generates the sound.

If you try to think of your room as if it were a bucket, you are trying to find any leaks which need sealing before you can fill it up with water.

SOUND TRAVEL THROUGH OBJECTS AND STRUCTURES

As sound travels through the air by vibration, then it seems reasonable to assume that this vibration can be transferred to, reflected by or absorbed by various solid materials. The floors, ceilings and walls will all affect how sound moves around a room, and may even transfer those vibrations to other areas of a dwelling. Even if a room is built from a solid material that's proofed against sound vibrations, such as a concrete basement, the sound can be transmitted and maybe even amplified to other areas of the building.

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

BASIC STEPS IN SOUNDPROOFING

If you've got bare floorboards or floors, think about putting down a few rugs or cover with a carpet to help reduce any vibrations and sound reflections. Not only can such a simple and straightforward solution reduce your noise pollution problem, it can also perk up the room. Window drapes and wall coverings can also be used to enhance soundproofing and are easy to install and maintain.

Locating and stopping up any holes or gaps in the rooms, think doors, sockets, windows and light fittings, is also a straightforward job for a competent do-it-yourselfer. Stopping up the holes and gaps with an acoustic sealant found in some DIY and building material shops, can make a big difference to sound transmission in your rooms. Acoustic sealants are inclined to be slightly more expensive than regular sealant products, but the special design has far greater soundproofing performance and is definitely worth the small additional cost.

If the room you are working on is an empty canvas and you are doing the soundproofing while you decorate or renovate, think about putting up a layer of soundboard or plasterboard, (also known as sheet rock, gypsum board or drywall). Plasterboard is a very dense material that's both effective and economical for soundproofing purposes. It is effective for spaces like home offices, music studios or movie rooms which are being built within the home. If you're not familiar with fitting framing and plasterboard, it's advisable to use a specialist team to guarantee the optimum soundproofing benefits from its use.

One last simple soundproofing option is to examine the materials from which your doors are made. If you have hollow doors installed in your rooms you will discover they can vibrate with any sound that is aimed at them. Exchanging hollow doors for solid ones will enhance the soundproofing of a room with only a small extra cost.

They will ask the four following questions during the initial evaluation of your needs:

  1. What area needs to be soundproofed? i.e. Is it a stud partitioned room, a brick walled room, a concrete lined basement or an attic conversion.
  2. What noise or sounds are you seeking to reduce? i.e. External things such as trains, next door neighbours, traffic noise etc, or internal sounds from a family room or music studio.
  3. Precisely where is the major source of the noise emanating from? i.e. Overhead, through the ceiling, walls, doors, flooring or windows, or a combination.
  4. What's the size of the room or space that must be soundproofed?

A certified soundproofing installation company in Lindfield will consider all of these factors to provide remedies for your sound problems for various budgets. The parts of your room that are responsible for the biggest problems may each require different solutions.

PROFESSIONAL SOUNDPROOFING OF CEILINGS, FLOORS and WALLS

2 key approaches are needed to soundproof any kind of room or space:

  1. Reduce the effect of sound reflection, amplification and vibration by hard surfaces.
  2. The absorption of sound needs to be increased.

To accurately analyse the elements that need to be improved, an on-site survey should be carried out by a local soundproofing company.

The team will look at ways of adding materials that have different masses and densities to increase the sound absorption qualities of the room. The use of acoustic foams and rubbers of varying density and mass will help in absorbing noises and reduce transmission and reflection sources.

Any voids in the area might need some kind of muffling material to be placed between them to lower sound resonation. If you envision these spaces as similar to a drum or wooden cajon then you can see that by leaving wall cavities and floor or ceiling joist spaces empty, you're effectively creating a noise amplification area.

It's better to use mixed layers of different densities to soak up unwanted noises than a solitary layer made from one type of material. This is because the various frequencies are absorbed differently by different types of materials, therefore a variety of layers, densities and shapes within your soundproofing armoury are required.

Any soundproofing company in Lindfield must adhere to the the Building Regulations (Part E), if dealing with a domestic property. This set of regulations is a requirement in law to protect your neighbours and yourself from the negative effects of noise pollution in a setting where folks live and work.

The Association of Noise Consultants and the Institute of Acoustics are trade bodies who offer training, qualifications and represent the best in contractors and companies that offer soundproofing services. An experienced soundproofing company in Lindfield will have been subject to a vetting procedure for the quality and professionalism of their workmanship to have been accepted as a member of these trade organisations.

Acoustic Mineral Wool

One of the most useful materials available for the soundproofing of properties in Lindfield, acoustic mineral wool (AMW) has various applications for your sound absorption requirements. Designed specifically for installation in the cavity spaces of floors, walls and ceilings, acoustic mineral wool is effective in absorbing sound waves, enhancing acoustic performance and dampening vibrations.

Acoustic Mineral Wool Lindfield

Usually available in "slabs" of 600mm x 1200mm, AMW also comes in several thicknesses (25 millimetres, 50 millimetres, 75 millimetres and 100 millimetres). Non-flammable and chemically inert, AMW is often made from recycled materials. It won't react with any substances or materials that it comes into close contact with (i.e. plastics, masonry, brickwork, metal wall ties), and doesn't encourage the growth of fungi, bacteria or mould.

When employed as a sound absorbing filler between suspended ceilings, stud partitioning and flooring joists, AMW is particularly effective, and it's widely recognised in the building sector for its acoustic, thermal and fire insulation qualities. To comply with the Building Regulations (Part E) with regards to separating floors and walls, AMW can be used side by side with other acoustic products.

Soundproofing Underlay Lindfield

If you want to minimise the noise experienced in your Lindfield property without causing too much disruption, why not think about installing some acoustic or soundproofing underlay on your floors Both concrete and wood floors are suitable surfaces for these acoustic underlays, and they can be laid under carpet, engineered wood, vinyl planks and laminate.

When your issue is for the most part impact noise and not airborne noise, soundproofing underlay is a particularly beneficial treatment. In recent times, the increased popularity of "hard" floor finishes has contributed to more and more problems with impact noise in many Lindfield homes. This is especially problematic when coming from rooms upstairs, and the type of noise issues we are talking about here is kids stomping around, general foot traffic and moving furniture.

You shouldn't confuse acoustic or soundproofing underlay with normal carpet underlay, although some unprincipled carpet retailers might attempt to palm you off with this claiming it has good soundproofing benefits. If you are encountering severe noise issues in your property in Lindfield, contact a respected vendor and buy a good quality soundproofing underlay that is right for your specific situation.

While acoustic underlay is an effective product for reducing impact noise, some are much better than others when facing airborne noise pollution like blaring TV's, shouting and deafening music. Talking about the exact kinds of noise you're trying to lower with the supplier or soundproofing expert is essential, and this will help you buy the best underlay for your needs.

Soundproofing Foam Lindfield

I was intrigued to learn recently that a common search phrase entered on Google was "soundproofing foam", and for local searches "soundproofing foam Lindfield" and "acoustical foam Lindfield". Now, this suggests that many folks in Lindfield are searching for a solution to soundproof their properties, and are hoping that soundproofing foam will achieve this.

It's not a case of me trying to be the bearer of bad news, but the simple truth is that this type of product isn't going to be the answer you're looking for, and will certainly not eliminate the din caused by noisy neighbours in Lindfield.

The customary "egg box" shaped foam, that often appears to be the hallmark of soundproofing, was not actually developed for blocking out noise, but is meant for the reduction of amplifying and echoing in music studios and similar situations, where it can also improve the acoustic performance of a room. This type of product isn't effective for stopping noise from passing through a wall from a neighbouring property, or even to stop sound from travelling around your home and being a nuisance. As opposed to blocking it, acoustic foam actually allows sound to pass through it, because it is in fact porous.

If however, you are changing a space into a music room, this might be a handy product for you, and can be found in different thicknesses (usually 25 millimetre and 50 millimetre), and in various sheet and tile sizes.

Lindfield Skip Hire

Home improvements, property revamps and even small-scale do-it-yourself projects are renowned for the quantity of waste that's created and has to be got rid of. Although soundproofing is not one of those jobs that generally produces lots of waste, that isn't always the case, and it will depend on the scale of your particular installation. Some soundproofers make allowances for the removal of waste when they prepare their quotes, and if this isn't mentioned ask if this is included, if not you will need to sort it out.

Skip Hire Lindfield

Hiring a skip is the simplest way to get rid of this waste. Skips come in various different based on your requirements, and deciding which skip to order is crucial. Mini-skips hold roughly 2-3 yards of waste, midi-skips hold roughly 4-5 yards of waste, builders skips hold roughly 6-8 yards of waste and roll-on-roll-off skips hold roughly 20-25 yards of waste. Skip bags usually hold approximately 1-1.5 yards of waste.
