Before we can discover techniques for reducing sound pollution, we need to understand exactly how sound travels and is transmitted.

Soundproofing North Weald Bassett Essex (CM16)

Sound can move in two different ways:

1. Through the air by vibration of air molecules.

2. Through objects by the vibration of the material.

Sound can also be transmitted through water, however unless you are thinking about soundproofing an aquarium or swimming pool we'll simply concentrate on the isolation via air and materials.


Any gaps around doors, heating ducts, ill fitting windows and even light fittings and electrical sockets can all affect the transmission of sound into or outside a room. What we hear as sound is essentially air molucules being vibrated and reaching our ear drums. All sounds are transmitted through the air in the same way; it matters not if it's music, aircraft, heavy machinery, kids playing or busy traffic that produces the sound.

It is helpful to think of your room as a boat and carefully inspect it for leaks before sailing off into the sunset.


As sound moves through the air by vibration, then it seems logical that this vibration can be transferred to, reflected by or absorbed by different solid materials. Sound will cause vibrations in the ceilings, floors and walls of your rooms, and can lead to a resonation effect that is transferred beyond the room itself. Care has to be taken with solid brick or concrete walls, such as in cellars, because sound can be transmitted and sometimes even amplified to other rooms in your property.

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


A bare floor surface is more resonant than one covered by a rug or carpet. The rugs or other soft coverings will help soak up noises but can also add a touch of style to a previously bare room. Hanging wall coverings and curtains can also avoid sound vibrations and reflections through walls and windows without the need to hire a professional team of soundproofers.

Locating and sealing any gaps or holes around the rooms, think light fittings, windows, door frames and electrical sockets, is also a straightforward job for a capable DIY enthusiast. There are some unique acoustic sealants available to buy which suppress the sound waves, and don't transmit them to surrounding materials. They might be a bit more pricey than normal sealants or plaster, but they are worth the cost for their soundproofing efficiency.

If your room is an empty canvas and you're soundproofing as you renovate or decorate, consider putting up another skin of plasterboard or soundboard, (also called sheet rock, drywall or gypsum board). This is a relatively dense type of board that's an economic and useful soundproofing material. If you are fitting a music studio, home cinema or study then plasterboard will help in reducing sound transference to and from that room, and can be easily decorated after completion. If you're not familiar with fitting plasterboard and framing, it's advisable to employ a specialist North Weald Bassett contractor to guarantee you the optimal soundproofing benefits from its installation.

Be ready to answer the four following questions during a review of your soundproofing requirements:

  1. What type of property or room do you need to soundproof? Is it a brick wall, a lined concrete wall or a plasterboarded partition wall etc.
  2. What is the main place where the sound causes the most problems? i.e. Is it emanating down from overhead, through doors, from the walls or up through the flooring, or is it a mix of all factors.
  3. Is it internal sounds or external noise that you want to tackle? i.e. To reduce aircraft, neighbours or traffic noise, or is it from internally created sounds from a family room or music studio for instance.
  4. How big is the area requiring soundproofing?

With honest answers to these questions a good quality soundproofing specialist in North Weald Bassett will figure out solutions to suit your circumstances, and just as importantly, your allotted budget. There will be different remedies for each of the main key areas of the room that you want to soundproof.


Two key components are required to soundproof any type of room or space:

  1. The absorption of sound will have to be increased.
  2. Lessen the effect of sound reflection, vibration and amplification by hard surfaces.

This will require an on-site survey to verify exactly what areas need improving from the present condition.

Solutions from the survey will probably include the addition of materials of different densities to help enhance the soundproofing attributes of the room. Soundproofing will be improved by the installation of acoustic rubber and foam which will absorb sound waves and enhance and a room's sound quality.

Insulation between any voids will be upgraded to lessen the sound resonation and amplification of these "sound boxes". Wall cavities or flooring and ceiling voids can all be assimilated with a drum, where the space acts as an amplifying area for any unwanted noise.

Mixed layers of materials with different masses and densities do a better job of absorbing sound than a single material layer of one type. This is due to the fact that the various frequencies are absorbed differently by different types of materials, therefore a variety of densities, shapes and layers within your soundproofing panels are required.

Any soundproofing contractor in North Weald Bassett will have to follow the the Building Regulations (Part E), if your property is residential in nature. This set of regulations is a requirement in law to protect your neighbours and yourself from the negative effects of sound pollution in an environment where folks live and work.

Trade bodies in the soundproofing sector who offer training, qualifications and guidance are the Association of Noise Consultants (ANC) and the Institute of Acoustics (IOA). Only those North Weald Bassett companies that have been vetted and accredited by these associations for professionalism, reliability and quality are allowed to bear the logo.

Soundproofing Underlay North Weald Bassett

If you want to minimise the noise experienced in your home in North Weald Bassett without causing excessive disruption, you could think about installing some soundproofing or acoustic underlay. This is okay for use on timber or concrete floors and can be laid under carpet, vinyl planks, laminate, engineered wood, and several other types of flooring.

When your problem is not so much airborne noise but mainly impact noise, acoustic underlay is a particularly beneficial treatment. Many properties in North Weald Bassett have a massive issue with impact noise, and this is largely due to the increased popularity of hard floor finishes, which are more widespread these days. Things such as kids stomping around, general foot traffic and shifting furniture, are the form of noise that we are referring to here.

You should not get soundproofing or acoustic underlay confused with normal carpet underlay, although some carpet suppliers might try to palm you off with this claiming it has decent soundproofing qualities. If you have significant noise problems be sure to purchase a quality soundproofing underlay.

Although it's an effective product with regard to impact noise, soundproofing underlay has differing levels of success when it comes to reducing airborne noises like blaring televisions, deafening music and shouting, and some products are definitely better than others. Accordingly, it is essential to determine the exact types of noise you're endeavouring to minimise before picking out a particular underlay, and chat with your supplier or soundproofing specialist about your specific situation.

Soundproofing Foam North Weald Bassett

After doing some basic keyword research, it seems that one of the most commonly searched for terms on Google and other search engines is for "soundproofing foam" and for householders in North Weald Bassett, possibly "soundproofing foam North Weald Bassett". This is somewhat baffling, as it implies a lack of awareness by local homeowners who seem to be of the opinion that their noise pollution issues can be fixed through the use of acoustic foam.

It isn't my intention to ruin anyone's day, but most noise related issues can't be helped by this type of product, and if your goal is to block out the din caused by noisy neighbours in North Weald Bassett, you will have to look for something better.

The foam in the form of an "egg box" which you regularly see for sale in tile or sheet form isn't really intended for stopping the transmission of noise, but was really developed for use in music studios and similar surroundings, to reduce echoing and resonation and improve the acoustic performance of a room. This sort of acoustic foam is not efficient at stopping sound from passing through a wall or preventing noise from moving around the rooms of your house. Given that soundproofing foam is porous and spongy, it actually permits sound to pass through it, and doesn't have the density to stop it.

It may be that you actually have a music room in your home in North Weald Bassett, in which case this material may be useful for you.
