Initially it will help if we understand how sound travels and is transmitted before we are able to identify ways to combat any loud noise getting into or out of your home.

Soundproofing Nailsea Somerset (BS48)

There are only two ways in which sound can move around a room:

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, but unless your intention is to soundproof a pool or aquarium we will just look at the strategies for soundproofing rooms and structures.


If you glance around the space to be soundproofed and notice gaps around doors, single glazed windows, open air-ducting and even electrical switches and sockets, these are all causes of sound transmission. All sound vibrates the molecules in the air and these vibrations are what we hear as sound. It matters not whether it's kids playing, music, traffic, aircraft or machinery, they all produce and transmit sound in the same way.

Any openings within a room can be considered to be a leak and will need to be closed off.


Sound waves can additionally be transferred to, reflected by or absorbed by solid objects and structures. Sound will vibrate the walls, ceilings and floors of your rooms, and may result in a resonation effect that is transferred outside the room itself. Even if a room is encased in a dense material which is resistant to sound, such as a concrete lined basement, the sound can sometimes be transmitted and perhaps even amplified to other areas of the structure.

How do we stop this sound transmission having a detrimental impact on others? Soundproofing obviously.


Think about covering bare floors, which reflect and resonate sound, with a rug or carpet. Not only can such a simple and straightforward solution help to reduce your noise pollution problem, it can also spruce up the room. Wall coverings or window drapes can also be employed to enhance soundproofing and are simple to install.

Finding and sealing any gaps in your room, think light fittings, electrical sockets, doors and windows, is also a straightforward task for a skilled DIY enthusiast. It is possible to buy specialist acoustic sealants in many building supply stores which repress the transfer of sound by absorbing the sound waves. Acoustic sealants are inclined to be a bit more expensive than normal plaster or other sealant products, but their unique soundproofing qualities far outweigh the small additional cost.

If the room you are working on is a blank canvas and you're soundproofing while you decorate or renovate, consider installing another skin of soundboard or plasterboard, (also called sheet rock, drywall or gypsum board). This is an economic and efficient soundproofing material owing to its dense nature. If you are fitting a study, cinema room or studio then plasterboard can help in reducing sound transference to and from that room, and can be decorated easily after installation. It is preferable to hire a certified Nailsea tradesman to install plasterboard unless you have experience in its application.

One final simple soundproofing remedy is to examine the materials from which your doors are made. If you've got hollow doors in your rooms you'll find they can resonate and vibrate with any sound that is aimed at them. If you are able to change to solid wood doors you'll discover that it boosts your soundproofing at little extra cost.


If you reside in a high sound 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. You will receive the best possible soundproofing results by using the expertise of a certified soundproofing company.

Expect to answer the four following questions during a survey of your particular soundproofing needs:

  1. Is it external noise or internal sounds that you need to deal with? i.e. To lessen traffic, next door neighbours or overflying aircraft, or is it from internally generated sounds from a home cinema or music studio for example.
  2. From what direction do the sounds appear to be coming from? i.e. Through the windows, doors, walls, ceiling or flooring or a combination of all.
  3. How big is the area you wish to be soundproofed?
  4. What space needs to be soundproofed? i.e. Is it a concrete lined basement, a loft conversion, a brick walled room or a plasterboard partition room.

With answers to these queries a genuine soundproofing installer in Nailsea will be able to supply you with solutions to suit your situation, and just as important, your allotted budget. The parts of your room that are responsible for the biggest problems may each need different solutions.


There are two key areas that need to be addressed to successfully soundproof any space:

  1. Increase and update the level of sound absorption.
  2. Lower the effect of sound reflection, vibration and amplification by solid surfaces.

Doing this requires an on-site survey to ascertain which areas require enhancing from the current state.

Conclusions from the survey will include adding some materials of different densities and masses to help enhance the soundproofing qualities of the area. The addition of acoustic foams and rubbers of varying mass and density will help to absorb sounds and reduce transmission and reflection sources.

Any voids in the area may need some kind of deadening material to be inserted between them to lower noise resonation. If you envision such spaces like a drum then you can see that by leaving floor or ceiling joist spaces and wall cavities empty, you're effectively creating a sound amplification area.

Soundproofing is improved if different densities and materials are employed, as opposed to installing only one sort of material. This is because the various different materials react in different ways with various frequencies and will provide a better resolution to your soundproofing.

Any soundproofing installer in Nailsea must adhere to the Part E of the Building Regulations, if your property is residential in nature. Such legislation should be adopted so as to protect yourself and others from the harmful effects of sound pollution.

Look for companies bearing the logos of the Institute of Acoustics (IOA) or the Association of Noise Consultants (ANC) to make certain you're dealing with a business which is knowledgable and fully qualified in the soundproofing sector. Any Nailsea contractor displaying IOA or ANC accreditation will have been appraised to make certain they offer the highest quality, standards and reliability of work within the soundproofing industry.

Soundproofing Foam Nailsea

It seems from doing some basic keyphrase research that one of the most frequent searches on Google and other search engines is for "soundproofing foam" and for local property owners, "soundproofing foam Nailsea". That's really quite concerning, as it would suggest that Nailsea property owners are assuming that soundproofing foam is a suitable product for solving their noise pollution issues.

It's not my intention to be the bearer of bad news, but most noise related issues cannot be helped by this product, and if your goal is to reduce the racket caused by noisy next door neighbours in Nailsea, you'll have to look someplace else.

The "egg box" shaped foam that you regularly see for sale in sheet or tile form is not actually intended for stopping the transmission of noise, but was really developed for use in music studios and similar surroundings, to reduce echoing and reverberation and improve the acoustic performance of a room. Soundproofing foam of this sort isn't effective in stopping sound from travelling freely around your house, or stopping noise from penetrating a party wall. Since soundproofing foam is spongy and porous, it actually lets sound pass through it, and has not got the density to inhibit it.

This foam product might however be handy for you if you've got a music room in your home in Nailsea, and if this is the case you will find that it can be bought in various sheet sizes and thicknesses.

Acoustic Mineral Wool (AMW)

For you noise reduction requirements in Nailsea, AMW (or acoustic mineral wool) is one of the most versatile materials for soundproofing houses or other buildings, and has a number of applications. Improving acoustic performance, reducing reverberation and absorbing sound waves, acoustic grade mineral wool is designed specifically for installation in the cavity spaces of walls, floors and ceilings.

Acoustic Mineral Wool Nailsea

Typically available in slabs of 600mm x 1200mm, AMW also comes in different thicknesses (25 millimetres, 50 millimetres, 75 millimetres and 100 millimetres). Non-flammable and chemically inert, acoustic mineral wool is frequently made out of recycled raw materials (approximately 20%). It doesn't have a reaction with any substances or materials that it comes into contact with (i.e. plastics, metal wall ties, brickwork, masonry), and doesn't encourage the growth of bacteria, fungi or mould.

Notably effective as a sound absorption filler when used between flooring joists, suspended ceilings and stud partitioning, AMW is widely used in the building sector for thermal, fire and acoustic insulation. To adhere to the Building Regulations (Part E) with regards to separating floors and walls, AMW can be used in partnership with other acoustic solutions.

Soundproofing Underlay Nailsea

One of the less troublesome techniques for adding a degree of soundproofing to your property in Nailsea is through the installation of soundproofing or acoustic underlays. Both timber and concrete floors are suitable for these soundproofing underlays, and they can be installed beneath vinyl planks, engineered wood, carpet and laminate.

Where there's a lot of impact noise as opposed to airborne noise, soundproofing underlay is especially beneficial. Many property owners in Nailsea tend to have a huge problem with impact noise, and this is mainly attributable to the increased popularity of hard floor finishes, which are more commonplace nowadays. This is especially problematic in upstairs rooms, and the form of noise that we are talking about here is children stomping around, general footfall and moving furniture.

Do not confuse regular carpet underlay with authentic soundproofing or acoustic underlay, as some carpet companies might try to sell you such products, claiming that they are suitable substitutes. If you are experiencing severe noise issues in your property in Nailsea, visit a trustworthy dealer and buy a good quality acoustic underlay that is appropriate for your particular situation.

Even though the installation of acoustic underlay can be quite effective in lowering impact noise within a dwelling, airborne noise such as booming TV's, incessant talking and loud music, can be a different kettle of fish, with some products being better than others and having varying levels of success. Consequently, before selecting an underlay product it is vital to determine the specific kinds of noise you're aiming to lower, and discuss this with the soundproofing expert or supplier.
