It is important to realise how sound travels around a building before it's possible to find techniques to stop it from occurring.

Soundproofing Livesey Lancashire (BB2)

Sound is able to move in two different ways:

1. Around and within a solid object by vibration and reflection.

2. By the vibration of air molecules.

Despite the fact that sound also travels through water, unless you are looking to eliminate noise from an aquarium or swimming pool, we'll only be interested in how to soundproof rooms within a property.


Sound can be transferred out of and into a room through gaps around doors, ill fitting windows, open ducting and even electrical sockets and light fittings. Any noise vibrates the air molecules and this vibration is what we hear as sound. It matters not if it's passing aircraft, machinery, music, children playing or nearby traffic, they all generate and transfer sound in the same way.

Any gaps within a room can be considered to be a leak and will need to be plugged.


Sound waves can additionally be absorbed by, reflected by or transferred to solid objects and structures. Sound can be moved around a building from its source via the vibration of ceilings, walls and floors. Care should be taken with brick or solid concrete walls, such as a basement, since sound can be reflected and sometimes even amplified to other parts of your house.

So, how can we stop this resonation having a detrimental impact on other people? Soundproofing of course.


A bare floor surface is more resonant than one covered with a rug or carpet. These soft coverings and rugs will help to soak up sounds and can also add a bit of style to a previously bare room. Curtains, particularly substantial blackout styles, will also subdue any sounds from escaping or invading a room, economically and without requiring specialist soundproofing.

Search for areas around the rooms where noise can come in or escape from; doors, sockets, windows and light fittings, and close off any gaps. There are some unique acoustic sealants available on the market that absorb the sound waves, and don't transfer them to surrounding materials. There might be a considerable difference in price in comparison with a regular sealant, but the soundproofing capabilities are far better and will make a massive difference to a room.

If you are fortunate enough to be renovating or redecorating while tackling your soundproofing requirements, then look at installing an extra layer of plasterboard (also called sheet rock, drywall or gypsum board). Plasterboard is a very dense material which is both effective and economical for soundproofing a room. If you are putting in a movie room, studio or home office then plasterboard will help reduce sound pollution for that room, and can be decorated easily after installment. It's wise to hire a certified Livesey tradesman to install plasterboard unless you have some experience in this kind of work.

Soundproofer Quotes in Livesey Lancashire

One last simple soundproofing treatment is to examine the materials from which your doors are made. If you've got hollow doors installed in your rooms you will discover they can vibrate with any sound that they experience. Solid core doors, whilst a little more expensive, can have a sizeable effect on the soundproofing qualities of a room.


If you live in a high noise pollution location, such as near an airport or next to busy roads, you will need to be more aggressive in how to enhance the soundproofing qualities of your home. This is an instance when retaining the services of an established soundproofing company will bring the best results.

Soundproofer Near Livesey Lancashire

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

  1. What are the dimensions of the space or room that has to be soundproofed?
  2. Is it external noise or internal sounds that you wish to tackle? i.e. To stop noisy neighbours, traffic or passing trains, or is it from internally generated sounds from a family room or teenagers bedroom for instance.
  3. What is the main point where the sound creates the most problems? i.e. Is it coming up through the flooring, through windows, from the walls or down from above, or is it a mix of all factors.
  4. What is the room you wish to soundproof made from? (i.e. a lined concrete wall, a brick wall or a plasterboarded partition wall).

With honest answers to these questions a genuine soundproofing firm in Livesey will be able to supply you with solutions for your situation, and just as important, your budget. The areas of your room that are responsible for the biggest noise issues will each require different remedies.


2 key strategies are needed to soundproof any type of space or room:

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

To effectively assess the soundproofing areas that need improvement, a site survey needs to be carried out by a soundproofing expert.

A professional soundproofing company will evaluate the different methods for adding density and mass to the main trouble spots. The use of acoustic foams and rubbers of varying density and mass will help to absorb sounds and reduce transmission and reflection sources.

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

Combined layers of materials with different densities and masses do a better job of absorbing sound than a solitary layer of one material type. The different materials will reduce different frequencies of noise and provide a more rounded auditory experience and feeling to a room.

The Building Regulations (Part E) cover the soundproofing of residential properties, and will need to be followed by any installation company in Livesey. Part E of the Building Regulations is a legally binding requirement to protect yourself and neighbours from the negative effects of noise pollution in a setting where people work and live.

The Association of Noise Consultants and the Institute of Acoustics are recognised trade associations who provide qualifications and training, and represent the best in contractors and companies which offer soundproofing services. Any Livesey company bearing ANC or IOA accreditation will have been appraised to make sure they provide the highest reliability, quality and standards of workmanship within the industry.

AMW (Acoustic Mineral Wool)

One of the most versatile products for soundproofing homes in Livesey, acoustic mineral wool (AMW) has a range of applications for your noise reduction needs. Improving acoustic performance, absorbing airborne sound and dampening vibrations, acoustic grade mineral wool is designed specifically for installation in the cavity spaces of floors, ceilings and walls.

Acoustic Mineral Wool Livesey

AMW commonly comes in 600mm x 1200mm "slabs" and is readily available in 25 millimetre, 50 millimetre, 75 millimetre and 100 millimetre thicknesses. Often partly made from recycled materials, acoustic mineral wool is chemically inert, and is non-flammable. It's rare for bacteria, mould or fungi to form in acoustic mineral wool, and it won't have a reaction with plastics, brickwork, masonry, metal wall ties, or other materials that it comes into close contact with.

Widely recognised in the building industry for its thermal, fire and acoustic insulation properties, acoustic mineral wool is particularly effective as a sound absorbing filler when installed between suspended ceilings, floor joists and stud partitions. When applied together with other acoustic solutions, acoustic mineral wool can help in abiding by The Building Regulations (Part E) with regards to separating walls and floors.

Soundproofing Foam Livesey

It appears from carrying out some simple keyphrase research that one of the most commonplace searches on Google and Bing is for "soundproofing foam" and for local homeowners, "soundproofing foam Livesey". Now, this suggests that many folks in Livesey are looking for a solution to soundproof their homes, and are looking to acoustic foam to achieve this.

The last thing I am looking to do is rain on your parade, but if you are convinced that the racket from your noisy next door neighbours in Livesey can be reduced with this sort of product, you are sadly mistaken.

The foam in the form of an "egg box" which you often see being sold in tile or sheet form isn't really meant for blocking out noise, but is really intended for use in music studios and comparable spaces, to reduce reverberation and echoing and improve the acoustic performance of a room. This type of product isn't effective in preventing noise from travelling through a neighbours wall, or even moving around your property and causing annoyance. Given that it's porous, acoustic foam absorbs sound and allows sound to pass through, rather than blocking it.

This material might however be handy for you if you have a music studio in your property in Livesey, and if this is the case you'll find that it is available in various sheet sizes and thicknesses.

Acoustic Underlay Livesey

Adding a soundproofing underlay is a good way of adding a degree of soundproofing to your Livesey home without causing any serious disruption. Both concrete and wooden floors are suitable surfaces for these acoustic underlays, and they can be installed beneath vinyl planks, carpet, laminate and engineered wood.

Where there are specific issues with impact rather than airborne noise, soundproofing underlay is especially effective. The increased popularity of hard floor surface finishes means that impact noise has become an ever-increasing issue for property owners in Livesey. The type of noise problems that we're talking about here is children stomping around, shifting furniture and general footfall, in particular from upstairs rooms.

Although some unscrupulous carpet retailers may attempt to palm you off with normal carpet underlay with claims that it has good noise cancelling benefits, this shouldn't be mistaken for genuine acoustic underlay. If you're experiencing serious noise problems in your property in Livesey, contact a respectable vendor and purchase a good quality acoustic underlay that is right for your particular circumstances.

While impact noise can be noticeably lowered with soundproofing underlays, they have varying levels of success with regards to shouting, loud music and blaring televisions, and other airborne noise pollution. You should discuss the specific types of noise you're endeavouring to lower with your soundproofing expert or supplier, and this will allow you to establish the right underlay product for your soundproofing needs.
