Initially we need to learn just how sound travels before we are able to identify ways to combat any sound intrusion or escape from your home.

Soundproofing Methil Scotland (KY8)

Sound basically travels in two ways around a home:

1. By vibration of solid materials and objects.

2. By the vibration of air molecules.

As whale and dolphin songs can show, sound also penetrates long distance through water, however unless your intention is to soundproof an aquarium or swimming pool we'll look only at the techniques of soundproofing structures and rooms.


Significant amounts of sound can be transferred out of and into a room through ill fitting windows, gaps around doors, heating ducts and even electrical sockets and switches. What we hear and identify as sound is really air molucules being vibrated and being picked up by our ear drums. All sounds are moved through the air in this same way; it doesn't matter if it's kids playing, machinery, music playing, passing aircraft or road 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 that need sealing before you fill it up with water.


We all know that sounds are merely the vibration of air reaching the ear, but that vibration is also transferred to solid materials. The walls, floors and ceilings will all have an impact on how sound travels around a room, and can even transfer those vibrations to other areas of a building. Even if a room is encased in a solid material which is resistant to vibrations, such as a concrete cellar, the sound can be transmitted and maybe even amplified to other areas of the structure.

How can we stop these sounds and vibrations affecting other folks? Soundproofing is the remedy.


If you've got bare floorboards or floors, think about putting down a few rugs or cover with a carpet to help in reducing any sound reflections and vibrations. Such a straightforward solution can enhance a room and help to dampen down any noises to boot. Curtains, particularly substantial blackout ones, can also repress any sounds from escaping or invading the area, economically and without requiring specialist soundproofing.

Locating and plugging any holes or gaps in your room, think door frames, light fittings, windows and sockets, is also an easy job for a capable DIY enthusiast. There are unique acoustic sealants available to buy which absorb the sound waves, and don't transfer them to the surrounding materials. There may be a considerable difference in the price compared to a standard sealant, however the soundproofing abilities are significantly better and can make a big difference to a room's level of soundproofing.

If you are fortunate enough to be renovating or redecorating while dealing with your soundproofing requirements, then look into installing an extra skin of plasterboard (also referred to as drywall, gypsum board or sheet rock). This is a relatively dense board which is an economic and useful soundproofing material. It is great for spaces such as studies, studios or movie rooms being built within your house in Methil. If you do decide to use plasterboard to aid your soundproofing exploits it is a good idea to use a professional fitter in Methil, to achieve the maximum possible benefit from its installment.

The last solution for DIY enthusiasts is to check out the doors in your property in Methil. Although hollow doors are light and comparatively inexpensive, their soundproofing qualities are not that brilliant. Solid core doors, while a little bit more pricey, can have a sizeable effect on the soundproofing qualities of a room.


If your home is in a high sound pollution location, such as near an airport or next to busy roads, you'll have to be more inventive in your attempts to enhance the quality of the soundproofing in your property. This is an instance when the services of an experienced soundproofing installer will bring the most effective results.

The first questions you can expect to be asked are:

  1. What is the size of the room or space that must be soundproofed?
  2. From what direction do the sounds seem to be coming from? i.e. Through the flooring, ceiling, doors, windows or walls or a mixture of all of these.
  3. Is it external noise or internal sounds that you would like to tackle? i.e. To stop traffic noise, passing trains or noisy neighbours, or is it from internally created sounds from a home cinema or music room for example.
  4. What kind of area or room would you like to soundproof? Is it a plasterboarded partition wall, a brick wall or a lined concrete wall etc.

A professional soundproofing installer in Methil will look at all these aspects to provide remedies for your noise problems over a range of budgets. Solutions might vary in line with the different materials needed for each of the problem areas within your property.


There are two key areas that must be addressed to successfully soundproof any room or space:

A site survey will be necessary to assess the areas that need improving.

The team will work out ways of adding materials with different densities and masses to maximise the sound absorption of the area. Soundproofing can be enhanced by the addition of acoustic rubber, foam and other materials which absorbs sound waves and enhances and a room's sound quality.

The insulation between any existing voids will be upgraded to lower the noise resonation and amplification of these sound boxes. If you visualise such spaces like a drum then you can see that by leaving wall cavities and floor or ceiling joist spaces empty, you are effectively creating a sound amplification area.

It is best to use mixed layers of different density materials to soak up unwelcome noises than a single layer fabricated from one material. The diverse materials will isolate different frequencies of noise and deliver a more sympathetic auditory experience and feeling to a room.

All soundproofing companies in Methil need to follow the legislation for residential properties laid out in the Building Regulations (Part E). Such requirements should be followed so as to protect yourself and others from being negatively impacted by noise pollution.

Soundproofing Foam Methil

I was intrigued to discover recently that a common search term entered on Google and Yahoo was "soundproofing foam", and local searches included entries like "soundproofing foam Methil" and "acoustic foam Methil". Now, that's quite worrying as this would suggest that local homeowners are looking to acoustic foam products as an answer to their noise issues in Methil.

I don't wish to be a bearer of bad news, but soundproofing foam isn't really a resolution for most noise related problems, and is most certainly not much use if you're aiming to filter out the racket from noisy neighbours in Methil.

The familiar "egg box" style foam, that appears to be the trademark of soundproofing, was not actually developed for blocking out noise, but has the purpose of reducing echoing and reverberation in music studios and comparable environments, where it can also enhance the sound clarity in a room. Acoustic foam of this sort isn't effective in stopping sound from travelling freely around your property, or preventing noise from passing through a neighbours wall. Acoustic foam is porous and does not have the density to block sound, it absorbs it and actually permits sound to pass through it.

If however, you happen to have a music studio, this could be a handy product for you, and is available in various thicknesses (generally 25 millimetre and 50 millimetre), and in different tile and sheet sizes.

Acoustic or Soundproofing Underlay Methil

If you're looking for to reduce the noise you experience in your house in Methil without causing a lot of disturbance, you could consider installing some soundproofing underlay. These can be used under engineered wood, vinyl planks, carpet or laminate floor coverings, and are designed for both wooden and concrete floors.

When your problem is not so much airborne noise but primarily impact noise, soundproofing underlay is an especially beneficial solution. The increased popularity of "hard" floor finishes in Methil, means there are more and more problems with impact noise. Such things as children running around, general foot traffic and moving furniture, are the form of noise we are talking about here.

Don't confuse ordinary carpet underlay with genuine soundproofing underlay, since some carpet suppliers may try to pass off such products, with claims that they're suitable. If you are encountering severe noise issues in your home in Methil, contact a trustworthy vendor and buy a decent soundproofing underlay that is appropriate for your specific circumstances.

While it is a winning product with regard to impact noise, soundproofing underlay has differing degrees of success when it comes to reducing airborne noise issues such as blaring televisions, loud music and constant talking, and some products are definitely much better than others. Discussing the specific kinds of noise you're endeavouring to minimise with your supplier or soundproofing specialist is essential, and this should enable you to pick the best underlay for your requirements.

Acoustic Mineral Wool (AMW)

Acoustic mineral wool is one of the most versatile materials on the market for soundproofing properties in Methil and has a range of applications for your sound absorption needs. Specifically designed to be installed in the cavity spaces of ceilings, floors and walls, acoustic mineral wool is effective in absorbing airborne sound, enhancing acoustic performance and reducing reverberation.

Acoustic Mineral Wool Methil

Commonly available in "slabs" of 1200mm x 600mm, AMW also comes in different thicknesses (25mm, 50mm, 75mm and 100mm). AMW is frequently made from recycled raw materials (approximately 20%), is non-combustible and is chemically inert. It doesn't encourage the growth of fungi, bacteria or mould, nor does it have a reaction with any materials or substances that it comes into close contact with (i.e. brickwork, plastics, masonry or metal wall ties).

When utilised as a sound absorption filler between stud partitions, flooring joists and suspended ceilings, acoustic mineral wool is particularly effective, and it's well-known in the construction sector for its thermal, acoustic and fire insulation attributes. With regards to separating walls and floors, and when used side by side with other soundproofing products, AMW can help in compliance with The Building Regulations (Part E).
