Soundproofer Ormskirk Lancashire (L39): If you're worried by the level of noise that is infiltrating your Ormskirk property, be it in a home office, studio, living room or bedroom, you might want to think about installing some soundproofing. Conversely you might wish to soundproof a single room to keep noise in, for example in a home cinema or family room, so that others don't get disturbed. No matter which soundproofing requirements are needed, it will be essential for you and your neighbour's sanity and peace of mind.
Firstly it might help if we get our heads around just how sound travels and is transmitted before we can identify ways to reduce any excessive noise intruding into or escaping from your home.
There basically a couple of ways by which sound can travel around a home:
1. Through the air by vibration of air molecules.
2. By vibration of solid materials and objects.
Sound can also travel through water, but unless you're planning to soundproof an aquarium or swimming pool we'll only concentrate on its isolation through materials and air.
SOUND THROUGH THE AIR
Sounds can be transferred into and out of a room through open air-ducting, single glazed windows, gaps around doors and even electrical sockets and light fittings. All sound and noise will initiate movement and vibration of the molecules in the air, and this is what we hear and identify. All sounds travel through the air in this same way; it matters not if it's nearby traffic, music, aeroplanes, machinery or children playing that creates the sound.
You must therefore visualise your room as a boat and carefully inspect it for leaks that need sealing before you can sail it.
SOUND THROUGH OBJECTS AND STRUCTURES
If sound travels through the air by vibrations, then it seems reasonable to assume that such vibrations can be transferred to, absorbed by or reflected by various materials. The walls, floors and ceilings will all have an effect on how sound moves around an area, and may even transmit that vibration to other areas of a dwelling. Even a solid concrete room, such as a cellar, can create a path of resonance which transports any sound waves, and even amplify them, to other parts of a building.
How do we stop these sounds affecting other people? Soundproofing of course.
BASIC STEPS IN SOUNDPROOFING
Consider covering bare floors, which reflect and resonate sound, with a carpet or rug. Such a simple and straightforward solution can help to damp down any noises and spruce up the room to boot. Window drapes and wall coverings can also be employed to enhance soundproofing and are simple to fit and maintain.
Locating and plugging any holes or gaps in your rooms, think windows, electrical sockets, doors and light fittings, is also a simple job for a capable DIY�er. There are some special acoustic sealants available to buy which absorb the sound waves, and do not transfer them to surrounding materials. They might be somewhat more pricey than normal plaster or sealants, but are worth the cost for their soundproofing qualities.
For those of you who are redecorating a room or renovating a property, consider the soundproofing gains of adding an extra skin of plasterboard or soundboard, (also known as sheet rock, drywall or gyproc), whilst you are carrying out this work. This is a relatively dense type of boarding that's an economic and useful soundproofing material. It is ideal if you're setting up a music studio, cinema room or home office in your house in Ormskirk. If you do decide to use plasterboard to aid your soundproofing it is best to bring in a professional fitter in Ormskirk, to get the maximum benefit from its installation.
Last but not least you ought to examine all doors in the room you're planning to soundproof. If you've got hollow doors fitted to rooms you will discover that they can vibrate and will resonate any sound that is aimed at them. If you are able to change to solid core doors you will discover that it boosts your room's soundproofing at minimal extra cost.
PROFESSIONAL SOUNDPROOFING ORMSKIRK
If the sound pollution is extreme in your area, on account of aircraft flying over, or traffic noise from a nearby road for instance, then more substantial methods to deal with the excess noise will need to be explored. The best way to resolve these problems is to bring in a competent soundproofing and acoustic firm from the local area.
They will ask the following four questions during the initial analysis of your requirements:
- Is it internal noise or external sounds that you need to address? i.e. To cut out trains, street noise or next door neighbours, or is it from internally generated sounds from a family room or music room for instance.
- What is the space you want to soundproof made from? (i.e. a brick wall, a plasterboarded partition wall or a lined concrete wall).
- How large is the space that needs soundproofing?
- Where exactly is the main source of noise emanating from? i.e. Overhead, through the ceiling, floor, doors, windows or walls, or a combination of everything.
Your answers to these queries will enable you to get price quotes for the different solutions available that match your requirements. Remedies will vary in line with the different materials required for each of the problem areas in your environment.
PROFESSIONAL SOUNDPROOFING OF CEILINGS, WALLS and FLOORS
There are 2 key areas that must be addressed to successfully soundproof any room:
- The absorption of sound needs to be increased.
- Cut down on the ways that sound is transmitted through and reflected by solid surfaces.
An on-site survey is going to be needed to look at the areas that need improving.
A professional soundproofer will evaluate the different ways to add mass and density to the troublesome areas. This additional mass will help to improve the absorption of noises by means of acoustic foam or rubber to achieve the maximum impact of sound reduction.
Any voids in the room might need some kind of muffling material to be installed between them to lower sound resonation. If you picture these spaces as similar to a drum or wooden cajon then you'll see that by leaving wall cavities and floor or ceiling joist spaces open, you are effectively creating a noise amplification area.
Combined layers of materials with different masses and densities do a better job of absorbing noise than a single layer of one material type. The different materials will eliminate different frequencies of sound and deliver a more balanced auditory experience and feeling to a room.
Part E of the Building Regulations cover the soundproofing of residential properties, and must be observed by any installation company in Ormskirk. These regulations have the aim of protecting neighbours and other residents in the area from the impact of noise pollution.
The Institute of Acoustics (IOA) and the Association of Noise Consultants (ANC) are trade organisations who offer qualifications and training, and represent the very best in contractors and companies who provide soundproofing solutions. Only those Ormskirk firms that have been appraised and approved by these associations for quality, professionalism and reliability are allowed to display the logo.
