First it would be a good idea to appreciate precisely how is transmitted and travels before we can find ways to combat any sound intrusion or escape from your home.

Soundproofing Longridge Lancashire (PR3)

Sound can travel in two different ways:

1. Through the vibration of objects or materials.

2. The vibration or air molecules through the air.

Sound also travels through water, however unless you're looking at soundproofing a swimming pool or aquarium we'll simply concern ourselves with the isolation via air and materials.


Any ill fitted windows, gaps around doors, open ducting and even electrical switches and sockets can all be responsible for the transmission of sound outside or into a room. All sounds and noise will initiate movement and vibration of the molecules in the air, and it is this that we identify and hear. Regardless of the source of the noise; heavy machinery, children playing, aeroplanes, music playing or nearby traffic, all sounds are generated and transferred in exactly the same way.

If you can imagine your room as a bucket, you're trying to identify any leaks which need sealing before you can fill it up with liquid.


As sound travels through the air by vibrations, then it seems logical that such vibrations can be absorbed by, reflected by or transferred to various materials. Sound can be transferred around a building from its source through the vibration of floors, walls and ceilings. Even in a room that's encased in a dense material that's proofed against sound vibrations, such as a concrete basement, the sound can sometimes be transmitted and perhaps even amplified to other rooms in the property.

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


Think about covering a bare floor surface, which resonates and reflects sound, with a carpet or rug. Such a simple solution can help to damp down any noise and spruce up the room at the same time. Hanging wall coverings and curtains can also suppress sound reflections and vibrations through windows and walls without the need to bring in a professional team of soundproofing specialists.

Finding and stopping up any gaps or holes around the rooms, think light fittings, windows, electrical sockets and doors, is also a simple job for a skilled DIY enthusiast. You can find specialist acoustic sealants in some DIY suppliers that deaden the transfer of sound by absorbing it. Acoustic sealants can be slightly more pricey than regular sealant products, however the special design has far greater soundproofing performance and is worth the extra cost.

For anyone renovating a property or redecorating a room, look at the soundproofing gains of adding an extra skin of plasterboard or soundboard, (also known as drywall, sheet rock or gypsum board), while you're carrying out the project. Plasterboard is a fairly dense material which is both economical and efficient for soundproofing purposes. It's excellent for spaces such as studios, home offices or movie rooms being built within your home in Longridge. It is far better to hire an experienced contractor near you to put up the plasterboard unless you've got some experience in this kind of work.

The last solution for do-it-yourself enthusiasts is to check out the doors in your home in Longridge. Whilst hollow doors are light and fairly affordable, their soundproofing capabilities aren't all that brilliant. If you're able to change to solid wood doors you'll discover that it enhances your soundproofing more cheaply than some other options.


If the level of sound is extreme in your area, on account of heavy traffic on a busy road nearby, or aircraft flying over for example, then more serious methods to deal with the excess noise will need to be investigated. The best solution for resolving these issues is to call in a decent acoustic and soundproofing firm from the local area.

The first questions you will be asked are:

  1. What are the dimensions of the area or room that has to be soundproofed?
  2. What space needs to be soundproofed? i.e. Is it an attic conversion, a brick walled room, a concrete lined cellar or a plasterboard partition room.
  3. Which is the main place where the sound causes the biggest problems? i.e. Is it emanating up through the floors, down from above, from the walls or through windows/doors, or is it a combination of all things.
  4. Is it internal sounds or external noise that you want to target? i.e. To cut out aircraft, neighbours or road noise, or is it from internally generated sounds from a family room or teenagers bedroom for example.

Your answers to these questions will enable you to receive estimates for the different solutions available that match your needs. The parts of your room that are responsible for the biggest noise issues will each require different solutions.


To soundproof any kind of room requires two key strategies:

  1. Increase the absorption of sound.
  2. Lessen the effect of sound reflection, amplification and vibration by hard surfaces.

A site survey will be needed to look at the elements that need to be improved.

Solutions from the survey will probably include adding some materials with different masses and densities to help boost the soundproofing characteristics of the room. This extra mass will help to increase the absorption of sound by means of acoustic rubber or foam to gain the maximum impact of sound reduction.

Insulation between any existing voids will be upgraded or improved to lower the sound resonation and amplification of these "sound boxes". Floor and ceiling voids and wall cavities can all be assimilated with a drum, where the space acts as an amplifying area for any undesirable sounds.

It's better to use mixed layers of different density materials to absorb undesired sounds than a solitary layer made of one sort of material. This is because different frequencies are affected by different materials, therefore a diversity of layers, shapes and densities within your soundproofing panels are needed.

The Building Regulations (Part E) deal with the soundproofing of domestic properties, and will have to be adhered to by any soundproofing specialist in Longridge. These regulations should be followed so as to protect yourself and neighbours from the harmful effects of sound pollution.

Trade bodies in the soundproofing industry that offer guidance, qualifications and training are the Institute of Acoustics and the Association of Noise Consultants. A reliable soundproofing specialist in Longridge will have undergone a vetting procedure for the quality and professionalism of their workmanship to have been accepted as a member of these trade associations.

Soundproofing Foam Longridge

It would seem from some basic keyphrase research that one of the most popular searches on Google and other search engines is for "soundproofing foam" and for local people, "soundproofing foam Longridge". Now, that's quite concerning as this would suggest that local property owners are looking to soundproofing foam products as a solution to their noise problems in Longridge.

The last thing I wish to do is be a bearer of bad tidings, but if you're assuming that the racket from your noisy next door neighbours in Longridge can be blocked out with this kind of product, you are wide of the target.

Often sold in tile or sheet form, this "egg box" style foam that you sometimes see on sale is not actually designed for blocking out noise, but is really meant to be used in music studios and comparable spaces, to enhance the sound clarity in a room, and reduce amplifying and echoing. Acoustic foam like this is not good at preventing noise from travelling around your house, or stopping sound from penetrating a neighbours wall. Soundproofing foam is porous and does not block sound, it absorbs it and lets sound pass through it.

This foam product may however be useful for you if you have a music studio in your house in Longridge, and if this is the case you will discover that it can be purchased in different thicknesses and tile sizes.

Soundproofing Underlay Longridge

If you're experiencing a lot of noise in your home in Longridge, a good way to lower this without excessive disruption is by adding some soundproofing or acoustic underlay to your floors. Both concrete and timber floors are suitable surfaces for these acoustic underlays, and they can be laid beneath laminate, engineered wood, carpet and vinyl planks.

When there's a problem with impact rather than airborne noise, soundproofing underlay is particularly effective. Nowadays, a rise in the popularity of "hard" floor finishes has led to more and more complaints about impact noise in many Longridge homes. Upstairs rooms are the main origin of such issues, with kids running around, general foot traffic and shifting furniture being frequent types of irritating noise.

You should not get acoustic or soundproofing underlay confused with regular carpet underlay, although some carpet companies may well try to sell you this with claims of soundproofing benefits. If you're experiencing serious noise problems in your home in Longridge, contact a legitimate vendor and purchase a good quality soundproofing underlay that is right for your specific needs.

Whilst acoustic underlay is mostly effective for impact noise, some are better than others when faced with airborne noise issues such as constant talking, blaring TV's and deafening music. Talking about the exact types of noise you're attempting to minimise with your soundproofing expert or supplier is essential, and this should enable you to buy the right product for your needs.

Acoustic Mineral Wool

One of the most useful materials available for soundproofing houses in Longridge, acoustic mineral wool has various applications for your noise reduction requirements. Acoustic mineral wool is designed specifically for installation in the cavity spaces of ceilings, walls and floors, to reduce reverberation, absorb sound waves and enhance acoustic performance.

Acoustic Mineral Wool Longridge

Coming in slabs of 1200mm x 600mm and 25 millimetre, 50 millimetre, 75 millimetre and 100 millimetre thicknesses, AMW is available from soundproofing stores. Chemically inert and non-combustible, acoustic mineral wool is often partly made of recycled materials (about 20%). It won't have a reaction with any materials that it comes into contact with (i.e. metal wall ties, masonry, brickwork, plasticsetc), and doesn't encourage the growth of fungi, mould or bacteria.

When utilised as a sound absorbing filler between stud partitions, suspended ceilings and floor joists, acoustic mineral wool is especially effective, and it is renowned in the construction industry for its fire, thermal and acoustic insulation properties. To abide by Part E of the Building Regulations with regards to separating floors and walls, acoustic mineral wool can be used alongside other soundproofing products.
