It is crucial for us to learn how sound travels around a structure before it's possible to find strategies to prevent it from happening.

Soundproofing Old Basing Hampshire (RG24)

There basically a couple of ways by which sound can move around a room:

1. By the vibration of air molecules.

2. By vibration of solid materials and objects.

As whale and dolphin song shows, sound also travels through water, but unless your intention is to soundproof an aquarium or swimming pool we will look only at the strategies for soundproofing rooms and buildings.


Significant levels of sound can be transmitted into and out of a room through single glazed windows, gaps around doors, open air-ducting and even electrical sockets and light fittings. What we hear and identify as sound is basically air molucules being vibrated and being picked up by our ear drum. Irrespective of the source of the sound; busy traffic, music, heavy machinery, aeroplanes or kids playing, all sounds are produced and transferred in exactly the same way.

If you try to visualise your room as a bucket, you're trying to find any leaks that need sealing before you fill it with water.


If sound travels through the air by vibrations, then it makes perfect sense that such vibrations can be transferred to, absorbed by or reflected by different solid materials. Sound can be transported around a building from its source through the vibration of floors, ceilings and walls. Even a solid concrete room, such as a basement, can generate a resonance path which transmits any sound waves, and even amplify them, to other areas of a dwelling.

How should we stop these sounds and vibrations affecting other people? Soundproofing is the remedy.


If you've got bare floor surfaces or floorboards, think about laying a few rugs or cover with a carpet to help in reducing any sound reflections and vibrations. Not only can such a simple solution reduce your problem with noise, but it can also brighten up the room. Window drapes and wall coverings can also be used to enhance soundproofing and are easy to install.

Look for areas in the rooms where sound can escape or come in; windows, sockets, doors and light fittings, and seal up any holes or gaps. There are unique acoustic sealants available on the market that absorb the sound waves, and don't transmit them to surrounding materials. Acoustic sealants can be a bit more pricey than regular plaster or other sealant products, however the special design has far greater soundproofing performance and is worth the extra cost.

For those of you who are renovating a property or redecorating a room, look at the soundproofing benefits of adding a supplementary layer of soundboard or plasterboard, (also called drywall, sheet rock or gyproc), while you're carrying out the work. This is a fairly dense type of board that is a perfect and economic soundproofing material. It's great if you're putting in a study, movie room or studio in your property in Old Basing. It's best to hire an experienced contractor near you to install plasterboard unless you've some experience in this kind of work.

One last simple soundproofing remedy is to check the materials your doors are made of. While hollow doors are lightweight and fairly affordable, their soundproofing characteristics aren't the best. Solid wood doors, while a little more expensive, can have a considerable effect on the soundproofing qualities of a room.


Some areas, such as those on aircraft flight-paths or next to busy traffic routes, naturally have more sound problems and will need other ways to solve the predicament. The best solution for resolving these issues is to get hold of an established soundproofing and acoustic firm from the local area.

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

  1. What is the main spot where the sound creates the biggest problems? i.e. Is it coming through doors/windows, down from overhead, from the walls or up through the flooring, or is it a mix of all things.
  2. What is the size of the area or room that needs to be soundproofed?
  3. What noise or sounds are you wanting to suppress? i.e. External factors like neighbours playing loud music, passing trains, street noise etc, or internal sounds from a family room or music studio.
  4. What area requires soundproofing? i.e. Is it a plasterboard partition room, a loft conversion, a concrete lined cellar or a brick walled room.

Your answers to these questions will enable you to get quotations for the different solutions available that match your needs. Remedies might vary in accordance with the different materials needed for each of the main trouble spots in your property.


There are two key areas that need to be dealt with to soundproof any room:

  1. Improve and update the amount of sound absorption.
  2. Lower the effect of sound amplification, vibration and reflection by hard surfaces.

To effectively determine the aspects that need to be improved, an on-site survey must be conducted by a local soundproofing company.

A specialist will evaluate the different ways to add mass and density to the problem areas. Soundproofing will be boosted by the installation of acoustic rubber, foam and other materials which absorbs soundwaves and improves and the sound quality of a space.

The insulation between any voids will be upgraded to reduce the noise amplification and resonation of these sound boxes. If you think about a drum for example, you are looking at a sound amplifying void enclosed within a resonating material; fundamentally what you may find inside ceiling and floor joists, or wall cavities.

Combined layers of materials with different densities and masses do a better job of absorbing sound than a single soundproofing material layer of one type. The diverse materials will isolate different frequencies of noise and offer a more rounded feeling and auditory experience to a room.

Any soundproofing installer in Old Basing will need to adhere to the the Building Regulations (Part E), if dealing with a residential property. These regulations have the purpose of protecting other residents in the immediate area from the impact of sound pollution.

The Association of Noise Consultants (ANC) and the Institute of Acoustics (IOA) are recognised trade organisations who offer training, qualifications and are representative of the very best in contractors and companies who provide soundproofing services. Only those Old Basing companies that have been appraised and accredited by these organisations for quality, reliability and professionalism are allowed to bear the logo.

Soundproofing Underlay Old Basing

If you would like to minimise the noise experienced in your Old Basing home without causing excessive disturbance, why not think about installing some soundproofing underlay on your floor surfaces These are okay for use under laminate, carpet, vinyl planks or engineered wood floor coverings, and are ideal for both concrete and wood floors.

When your issue is for the most part impact noise and not airborne noise, acoustic underlay is a particularly effective remedy. In recent times, a rise in the popularity of "harder" floor finishes has contributed to more and more problems with impact noise in lots of Old Basing households. This is particularly problematic when coming from upstairs rooms, and the type of noise that we're referring to here is general footfall, children stomping around and moving furniture.

Don't be deceived by unscrupulous carpet suppliers, who might try to palm you off with standard carpet underlay as a solution to your noise issues - this kind of product should never be mistaken for genuine acoustic underlay. If the noise problems you're experiencing are significant, ensure that you purchase a good quality soundproofing underlay from a professional vendor.

While impact noise can be substantially lowered through the use of acoustic underlay, it has differing levels of success when it comes to constant talking, loud music and blaring TV's, and other airborne noise pollution. Hence, it is vital to ascertain the precise sorts of noise you are attempting to reduce before picking a product, and chat with the soundproofing specialist or supplier about your particular situation.

AMW (Acoustic Mineral Wool)

Having various applications for your noise reduction needs, AMW (otherwise known as acoustic mineral wool) is one of the most useful materials on the market for the soundproofing of homes in Old Basing. Improving acoustic performance, dampening vibrations and absorbing sound waves, acoustic grade mineral wool is designed specifically for installation in the cavity spaces of floors, ceilings and walls.

Acoustic Mineral Wool Old Basing

Acoustic mineral wool normally comes in 1200mm x 600mm slabs and is readily available in 25mm, 50mm, 75mm and 100mm thicknesses. Acoustic mineral wool is often made of recycled materials (about 20%), is chemically inert, and is non-flammable. It doesn't encourage the growth of fungi, mould or bacteria, nor does it have a reaction with any materials that it comes into close contact with (i.e. brickwork, masonry, plastics or metal wall ties).

When employed as a sound absorption filler between floor joists, stud partitioning and suspended ceilings, AMW is notably effective, and it is well-known in the building sector for its thermal, fire and acoustic insulation properties. In relation to separating floors and walls, and when used along with other sound absorbing solutions, AMW can help in abiding by Part E of the Building Regulations.

Soundproofing Foam Old Basing

I was interested to learn quite recently that a popular search term typed into Google was "soundproofing foam", and local searches included entries like "soundproofing foam Old Basing" and "acoustic foam Old Basing". This is rather puzzling, because it implies a basic lack of awareness by local people who seem to be under the impression that their noise pollution problems can be sorted with acoustic foam products.

The last thing I want to do is spoil your day, but if you're thinking that the din from your noisy next door neighbours in Old Basing can be eliminated with a product like this, you're sadly mistaken.

The familiar "egg box" shaped foam, that seems to be the trademark of soundproofing, is not actually designed for stopping the transmission of noise, but has the purpose of reducing reverberation and echoing in music studios and comparable settings, where it can also improve the acoustic performance of a room. It isn't effective in stopping noise from moving around your house, or preventing sound from penetrating a wall from a neighbouring building. Acoustic foam is porous and doesn't have the density to block noise, it absorbs it and lets sound pass through it.

If however, you happen to have a music room, this could be a valuable product for you, and is available in various thicknesses (generally 25mm and 50mm), and in a choice of tile and sheet sizes.
