It is important for us to understand how sound is transmitted around an area before it's possible to find techniques to stop it from occurring.

Soundproofing Longbenton Tyne and Wear (NE12)

Sound basically moves in two ways around a home:

1. In open spaces by movement of air.

2. Through objects by the vibration of the material.

Although sound can also travel through liquids, unless you are wanting to reduce noise from a pool or aquarium, we'll just be interested in how to reduce sound levels in the rooms of a building.


If you look around the room to be soundproofed and detect gaps around doors, open ducting, single glazed windows and even electrical sockets and switches, these are all factors that can transfer sound. All noise and sounds will create the vibration and movement of the air molecules, and it is this that we hear. All sounds travel through the air in this same manner; it doesn't matter if it's aeroplanes, kids playing, machinery, music or busy traffic that generates the sound.

You should therefore think of your room as a boat and inspect it carefully for leaks before sailing off into the sunset.


We now know that sound is merely the vibration of air reaching the ear, but that vibration is also absorbed by solid objects. Sound will vibrate the walls, ceilings and floors of your rooms, and can result in a resonation effect that's transferred outside of the room itself. Even a room made from solid concrete, such as a cellar, can generate a path of resonance which channels sound waves, and sometimes amplify them, to other parts of a structure.

How should we stop these sounds and vibrations affecting other people? Soundproofing is the answer.


If you have bare floor surfaces or floorboards, think about covering them with carpet or laying a few rugs to help in reducing any vibrations and sound reflections. Not only will such a simple and straightforward solution reduce your noise pollution problem, it can also perk up the room. Wall coverings or window drapes can also be employed to enhance soundproofing and are simple to install and maintain.

Locating and sealing any gaps in the room, think light fittings, sockets, doors and windows, is also an easy task for a capable DIY enthusiast. Stopping up the holes and gaps with a special acoustic sealant that can be purchased in some DIY and building material shops, will make a massive difference to sound transmission in a room. There might be a little difference in the price when compared with a regular sealant, however the soundproofing capabilities are significantly better and can make an enormous difference to a room's level of soundproofing.

For anybody redecorating a room or renovating a property, look at the soundproofing properties of adding an extra skin of soundboard or plasterboard, (also called drywall, sheet rock or gypsum board), whilst you are carrying out this project. Plasterboard is a very dense material which is both economical and efficient for soundproofing a room. It's effective if you are setting up a study, movie room or games room in your property in Longbenton. If you are not experienced in putting up plasterboard and framing, it's best to use a professional team to guarantee you the best soundproofing results from its installation.

One final easy soundproofing solution is to look at the materials your doors are made of. Whilst hollow doors are light and relatively inexpensive, their soundproofing characteristics are not anything to write home about. Changing hollow doors for solid ones will noticeably boost the soundproofing of an area with only a minimal extra cost.


If the level of sound pollution is extreme in your location, because of traffic noise from a busy road nearby, or aircraft flying over for example, then more substantial ways to reduce the excess noise will have to be explored. You will receive the best soundproofing results by hiring the expertise of a skilled soundproofing specialist.

Soundproofer Near Longbenton Tyne and Wear

The initial questions you will be asked are:

  1. Where is the majority of the noise pollution coming from? The walls, doors, floors, windows or ceiling.
  2. What are the dimensions of the room or space that has to be soundproofed?
  3. What space needs to be soundproofed? i.e. Is it a stud partitioned room, a concrete lined cellar, an attic conversion or a brick walled room.
  4. Is it external sounds or internal noise that you would like to target? i.e. To lessen traffic noise, next door neighbours or aircraft, or is it from internally generated sounds from a teenagers bedroom or home cinema for instance.

With honest answers to these questions a genuine soundproofing company in Longbenton will provide you with solutions to suit your circumstances, and just as importantly, your budget. The areas of your room that are causing the biggest problems will each require different remedies.


To soundproof any kind of room requires 2 key approaches:

  1. Minimise sound resonating and amplifying.
  2. Update and improve the level of sound absorption.

To precisely assess the aspects that need improvement, an on-site survey needs to be conducted by a professional soundproofing team.

A professional soundproofer will look at the different methods for adding mass and density to the trouble spots. The use of acoustic rubbers and foams of different density and mass will help in absorbing noises and reduce transmission and reflection sources.

The insulation between any voids will be improved to reduce the sound amplification and resonation of these "sound boxes". Floor and ceiling voids and cavities in walls can all be likened to a drum, where the space inside acts like an amplification source for unwelcome noise.

It is best to use mixed layers of different densities to absorb unwelcome noises than a single layer made from one sort of material. This is because the various frequencies are absorbed differently by different materials, therefore a diversity of layers, shapes and densities within your soundproofing armoury are required.

Part E of the Building Regulations deal with the soundproofing of residential properties, and must be observed by any soundproofing firm in Longbenton. This set of regulations is a legally binding requirement to protect yourself and neighbours from the effects of sound pollution in a setting where people live and work.

Trade organisations in the soundproofing industry who offer qualifications, training and advice are the Institute of Acoustics and the Association of Noise Consultants. Any Longbenton company showing ANC or IOA accreditation will have been vetted to ensure they offer the highest quality, reliability and standards of work within the soundproofing industry.

AMW (Acoustic Mineral Wool)

Having various applications for your noise reduction requirements, AMW (or acoustic mineral wool) is one of the most versatile materials on the market for soundproofing houses in Longbenton. Dampening vibrations, absorbing sound waves and enhancing acoustic performance, acoustic grade mineral wool is designed specifically for installation in the cavity spaces of walls, floors and ceilings.

Acoustic Mineral Wool Longbenton

Available in thicknesses of 25mm, 50mm, 75mm and 100mm, AMW commonly comes in 600mm x 1200mm slabs. Often partly made with recycled materials, acoustic mineral wool is chemically inert, and is non-combustible. It doesn't react with metal wall ties, brickwork, masonry, plastics, or other materials or substances that it comes into contact with, nor does it encourage the development of bacteria, fungi or mould.

AMW is particularly effective as a sound absorbing infill when installed in the spaces between floor joists, stud partitioning and suspended ceilings, and is widely recognised in the building industry for acoustic, thermal and fire insulation. With regards to separating walls and floors, and when used together with other acoustic products, acoustic mineral wool can help in compliance with The Building Regulations (Part E).

Soundproofing Underlay Longbenton

One of the less disruptive techniques for adding some soundproofing to your Longbenton property is through the installation of acoustic underlay. Both concrete and timber floors are suitable for these underlays, and they can be laid beneath engineered wood, vinyl planks, carpet and laminate.

Basically, acoustic underlay can be a particularly effective remedy when your problem is not so much airborne noise but primarily an impact noise issue. The increased popularity of "hard" floor finishes in Longbenton, means issues with impact noise are becoming ever more widespread. The kind of noise issues we're referring to here is children running around, shifting furniture and general foot traffic, particularly from rooms upstairs.

Do not be misled by unscrupulous carpet merchants, who may attempt to palm you off with regular carpet underlay as a solution to your noise related issues - this kind of product should not be mistaken for genuine acoustic underlay, which is what you really need. If the noise problems you are experiencing are serious, be sure to buy a good quality soundproofing underlay from a respected dealer.

Whilst the installation of soundproofing underlay can be quite effective in lowering impact noise within a home, airborne noise such as blaring TV's, shouting and loud music, can be a whole different ball game, with some underlays being better than others and having different success rates. Consequently, before buying an underlay it's important to identify the specific kinds of noise you're aiming to lower, and discuss this with the soundproofing specialist or supplier.

Soundproofing Foam Longbenton

I recently thought that I would look into what people in Longbenton are searching for online with regards to soundproofing, and evidently when looking on Google and other search engines one of the most commonplace requests is "soundproofing foam". And on a local basis searches include things like "soundproofing foam Longbenton". This is rather bewildering, as it would suggest a basic lack of understanding by local householders who seem to be under the impression that their noise issues can be sorted out by installing acoustic foam.

The last thing I am looking to do is be the bearer of bad tidings, but if you're convinced that the din from your noisy next door neighbours in Longbenton can be eliminated with this kind of product, you are somewhat wide of the target.

Blocking out noise isn't the purpose of this familiar "egg box" shaped foam, which was in fact created for use in music studios and similar environments, where it can enhance the sound clarity in a room, and reduce amplifying, echoing and reverberation. This sort of soundproofing foam isn't effective in stopping sound from passing through a wall or preventing noise from travelling around your property. Seeing as it's porous, soundproofing foam actually absorbs sound and permits sound to pass through it, as opposed to blocking it.

This material might however be handy for you if you've got a music room in your property in Longbenton, in which case you'll find that it is available in various thicknesses and sheet sizes.
