First it might help if we appreciate just how sound moves and can be transmitted before we can identify ways to eliminate any excessive noise intruding into or escaping from your home.

Soundproofing Matlock Derbyshire (DE4)

Sound can move in a couple of ways:

1. The vibration or air molecules through the air.

2. Through the vibration of objects or materials.

Despite the fact that sound can also travel through liquids, unless you're looking to eliminate noise from a pool or aquarium, we'll only be interested in how to reduce sound levels in rooms within a building.


Any gaps around doors, heating ducts, ill fitted windows and even electrical switches and sockets can all be methods of transmission of sound outside or into a room. All sound vibrates the air molecules and these vibrations are what we hear and identify as sound. No matter the source of the sound; music playing, children playing, heavy machinery, traffic or aeroplanes, all sounds are produced and transmitted in precisely the same way.

If you try and think of your room as a bucket, you are attempting to identify any leaks that need sealing before you fill it up with water.


Sound waves can also be absorbed by, reflected by or transferred to solid materials and structures. Sound can be transferred around a building from its source by the vibration of ceilings, floors and walls. Care should be taken with solid brick or concrete walls, such as in cellars or basements, because sound can be reflected and sometimes even amplified to other parts of your house.

So, what's the easiest way to stop this resonation from affecting others? Soundproofing of course.


A bare floor is more resonant than one covered by a rug or carpet. These soft coverings will help absorb sounds and can also add a touch of elegance to a previously bare room. Curtains, in particular substantial blackout ones, can also stifle any noises from escaping or invading the area, economically and without the need for specialist soundproofing.

Another cost-effective and DIY resolution is to plug any holes around sockets, doors, windows and light fittings. Plugging the holes and gaps with a special acoustic sealant found in some DIY centres and builders merchants, can make a massive difference to how your room sounds. They might be a bit more pricey than regular sealants or plaster, but they're worthwhile for their soundproofing qualities.

If you are going to be renovating or redecorating while tackling your soundproofing, then look at the possibility of installing an additional skin of plasterboard (also known as gyproc, sheet rock or drywall). This is a dense board that's an economic and useful soundproofing material. It is ideal for spaces like studios, home cinemas or studies being built within your home in Matlock. It is advisable to hire an experienced Matlock tradesman to put up the plasterboard unless you're experienced in this task.

Lastly you should inspect all doors in the space you're seeking to soundproof. Hollow doors are fairly cheap but their soundproofing qualities are far from the best. Solid wood doors, whilst a tad more expensive, can have a substantial effect on the soundproofing capabilities of a room.


If the level of sound pollution is extreme in your location, on account of heavy traffic on a busy road nearby, or aircraft flying over for instance, then more serious methods to combat the excess noise may have to be investigated. You will receive the best possible soundproofing results by employing the services of a skilled soundproofing company.

Soundproofer Near Matlock Derbyshire

Be ready to answer the four following questions during an initial survey of your particular soundproofing requirements:

  1. What kind of room or property would you like to soundproof? Does it have a brick wall, a fully lined concrete wall or a stud partition wall etc.
  2. Is it external noise or internal sounds that you want to target? i.e. To stop overflying aircraft, street noise or next door neighbours, or is it from internally produced sounds from a home cinema or music room for example.
  3. Where is the primary source of sound emanating from? i.e. Overhead, through the walls, ceiling, flooring, doors or windows, or a mixture.
  4. What are the dimensions of the space or room that needs to be soundproofed?

A certified soundproofing firm in Matlock will take into consideration all of these points to provide remedies for your sound problems for various budgets. There will be distinct solutions for each of the main key areas of the space you want to soundproof.


There are 2 areas that must be addressed to successfully soundproof any space:

  1. Cut down on the effects on the way sound is reflected off and transmitted through hard surfaces.
  2. Maximise sound absorption.

To precisely determine the areas that need to be improved, an on-site survey must be performed by a soundproofing company in Matlock.

The experts will figure out ways of adding materials that have different densities and masses to increase the sound absorption of the room. This additional mass will include ways to enhance absorption of the sound energy by the use of acoustic foam or rubber to gain the maximum noise reduction impacts.

Voids between joists might need insulating to eliminate resonation gaps between them. If you picture such spaces like a drum then you'll appreciate that by leaving wall cavities and floor or ceiling joist spaces empty, you're effectively creating a sound amplification area.

It is far better to use mixed layers of different densities to absorb unwelcome sounds than a single layer fabricated from one kind of soundproofing material. This is because different frequencies are affected by different materials, therefore a range of layers, densities and shapes within your soundproofing panels are required.

Any soundproofing firm in Matlock will need to comply with the the Building Regulations (Part E), if your property is residential in nature. This regulation has the aim of protecting other residents in the area from the impact of noise pollution.

The Institute of Acoustics and the Association of Noise Consultants are recognised trade associations who offer training, qualifications and represent the very best in companies and contractors who provide soundproofing services. Only those Matlock companies that have been appraised and authorised by these trade organisations for reliability, professionalism and quality are permitted to bear the logo.

Acoustic Underlay Matlock

One of the less troublesome ways of adding some extra soundproofing to your Matlock home is through the installation of acoustic or soundproofing underlays. This is okay for use on timber or concrete floors and can be laid under vinyl planks, engineered wood, carpet, laminate, and many other flooring types.

When there's an issue with impact as opposed to airborne noise, acoustic underlay is especially effective. An increase in the popularity of "harder" floor finishes in Matlock homes, means that problems with impact noise are becoming more and more common. Rooms upstairs are the main source of such problems, with general footfall, kids running around and shifting furniture being typical worries.

You should not confuse acoustic underlay with standard carpet underlay, although some unprincipled carpet stores might try to palm you off with this claiming it has decent soundproofing attributes. If you're experiencing significant noise problems in your property in Matlock, contact a professional dealer and purchase a good quality acoustic underlay which is right for your particular situation.

Whilst impact noise can be dramatically reduced with acoustic underlays, they have differing degrees of success with regards to loud music, booming TV's and incessant talking, and other airborne noise problems. Therefore, it is vital to specify the specific sorts of noise you're aiming to reduce before purchasing an underlay product, and chat with your supplier or soundproofing expert about your specific circumstances.

Soundproofing Foam Matlock

It appears from carrying out some basic keyword research that a popular search on Google and Yahoo is for "soundproofing foam" and for householders in Matlock, maybe "soundproofing foam Matlock". Now, that's rather worrying as this would imply that local homeowners are turning to soundproofing foam products as a way to fix their noise problems in Matlock.

I don't want to rain on your parade, but soundproofing foam is not really a resolution for most noise pollution issues, and is most certainly not effective if you are looking to filter out the racket from noisy next door neighbours in Matlock.

Stopping the transmission of noise isn't the purpose of this familiar "egg box" style foam, which was actually created for use in music studios and similar settings, where it can enhance the sound clarity in a room, and reduce amplifying, echoing and resonation. Acoustic foam like this isn't good for preventing noise from travelling around your house, or stopping sound from penetrating a neighbours wall. Because acoustic foam is porous and spongy, it actually lets sound pass right through it, and does not have the density to inhibit it.

It might be that you actually have a music studio in your home in Matlock, in which case this foam product might be useful for you. (Tags: Acoustic Foam Matlock, Music Studio Soundproofing Matlock, Soundproofing Foam Matlock, Soundproof Foam Matlock).
