It is crucial to realise how sound travels and is transmitted around a structure before it's possible to find solutions to prevent it from occurring.

Soundproofing Old Catton Norfolk (NR6)

There basically a couple of ways by which sound can be transmitted around a home:

1. Around and within a solid object by reflection and vibration.

2. In open spaces by movement of air.

Sound can also travel through water, however unless you're looking at soundproofing a swimming pool or aquarium we'll only concern ourselves with its isolation via air and materials.


If you check around your area to be soundproofed and notice open ducting, ill fitted windows, gaps around doors and even light fittings and electrical sockets, these are all factors that can transfer sound. All noise and sound will create the vibration and movement of the air molecules, and this is what we identify and hear. Irrespective of the source of the noise; busy traffic, heavy machinery, music, aircraft or children playing, all sound is created and transferred in precisely the same fashion.

If you can think of your room as if it were a bucket, you're trying to find any leaks which need sealing before you fill it with water.


Sound waves can additionally be transferred to, absorbed by or reflected by solid materials and structures. Sound will vibrate the floors, walls and ceilings of your rooms, and may lead to a resonation effect which is transferred outside of the area. Even in a room that is built from a solid material that's proofed against sound vibrations, such as a concrete cellar, the sound can sometimes be reflected and even amplified to other parts of the structure.

How should we prevent these vibrations and sounds affecting other people? Soundproofing is the answer.


A bare floor is more resonant than one covered by a rug or carpet. Such a simple solution can help to damp down any noise and enhance the room at the same time. Hanging wall coverings and curtains can also avoid sound reflections and vibrations through windows and walls without the need for a professional team of soundproofers.

Locating and sealing any gaps around the room, think windows, door frames, light fittings and sockets, is also an easy task for a competent do-it-yourselfer. It is possible to purchase professional acoustic sealants in many DIY suppliers which subdue the transfer of sound by suppressing the sound waves. There might be a little difference in the price in comparison with a normal sealant, however the soundproofing capabilities are significantly better and will make an enormous difference to a room's level of soundproofing.

If you're going to be renovating or redecorating while dealing with your soundproofing requirements, then look at putting up an extra layer of plasterboard (also referred to as gypsum board, drywall or sheet rock). This is a dense type of boarding which is a perfect and economic soundproofing material. It's perfect if you are installing a cinema room, games room or home office in your house in Old Catton. If you do choose plasterboard to help with your soundproofing exploits it is advisable to bring in a specialist fitter in Old Catton, to achieve the maximum benefit from its installation.

  3. How big is the room you wish to have soundproofed?
  4. Where exactly is the primary source of sound coming from? i.e. Above, through the floors, windows, walls, ceiling or doors, or a combination of everything.

Any noticeable voids in the area might need some sort of muffling material to be installed between them to lessen sound resonation. If you think about a drum or wooden cajon, you're looking at a noise increasing void surrounded by a resonating material; in essence what you may find inside floor and ceiling joists, or wall cavities.

It is far better to use combined layers of different densities to absorb unwanted noises than a single layer fabricated from one material. This is because the various frequencies are absorbed differently by different materials, therefore a diversity of densities, shapes and layers within your soundproofing panels are required.

This is okay for use on concrete or wooden floors and can be installed beneath laminate, vinyl planks, carpet, engineered wood, and other flooring types.

The more widespread use of hard floor finishes means that impact noise pollution has become a rising issue for property owners in Old Catton.
