It is crucial for us to understand how sound is transmitted around an area before it is possible to identify solutions to prevent it from occurring.

Soundproofing Ottery St Mary Devon (EX11)

There basically two ways in which sound can be transmitted around a home:

1. By the vibration of air molecules.

2. Through the vibration of objects or materials.

Sound also travels through water, however unless you are thinking about soundproofing a pool or aquarium we will just deal with its isolation through materials and air.


Substantial amounts of sound can be transferred into and out of a room through gaps around doors, ill fitting windows, open air-ducting and even electrical switches and sockets. What we identify and hear as sound is essentially air molucules being vibrated and reaching our ear drums. It doesn't matter whether it's kids playing, aeroplanes, road traffic, heavy machinery or music playing, they all generate and transfer sound in the same manner.

It is helpful to visualise a room as a boat and inspect it carefully for leaks that require sealing.


As sound travels through the air by vibrations, then it seems logical that those vibrations can be transferred to, reflected by or absorbed by various solid materials. Sound can be transported around a dwelling from its source through the vibration of ceilings, floors and walls. Even in a room that's encased in a solid material which is resistant to sound, such as a concrete lined cellar, the sound can sometimes be transmitted and possibly even amplified to other areas of the property.

But, how can these effects be prevented from causing a problem? The solution is not surprisingly, soundproofing!


If you have bare floorboards or floors, think about laying a few rugs or cover with a carpet to help reduce any vibrations and sound reflections. These soft coverings and rugs will help to absorb sounds but can also add a touch of style to a previously bare room. Hanging curtains and wall coverings can also dampen sound vibrations and reflections through windows and walls without the need for a team of professional soundproofers.

Another cost-effective and DIY resolution is to plug any gaps around light fittings, doors, windows and electrical sockets. Stopping up the holes and gaps with a specialist acoustic sealant that can be purchased in some DIY stores and builders merchants, will make a huge difference to sound transmission in a room. Acoustic sealants can be a little more expensive than normal sealant products, but the special design has far greater soundproofing performance and is worth the small additional cost.

If you're going to be renovating or redecorating while tackling your soundproofing requirements, then look at putting up an additional layer of plasterboard (also called sheet rock, gyproc or drywall). This is a dense type of boarding that's a perfect and economic soundproofing material. It is great if you are installing a home office, studio or cinema room in your house in Ottery St Mary. It's advisable to hire a professional contractor near you to put up the plasterboard unless you've got experience in its application.

The final solution for DIY enthusiasts is to consider the doors in your home in Ottery St Mary. Hollow doors are fairly cheap but their soundproofing qualities are far from the best. If you're able to change to solid core doors you will discover that it enhances your soundproofing more cheaply than some other solutions.


Some properties, for instance those on aircraft flight-paths or next to busy traffic routes, naturally have more sound problems and will need other ways to solve the dilemma. The best solution for resolving these issues is to call in a professional acoustic and soundproofing contractor from your local area.

Soundproofer Near Ottery St Mary Devon

They should ask the four following questions during a basic appraisal of your requirements:

  1. What sounds or noise are you seeking to suppress? i.e. External things like passing trains, traffic noise, next door neighbours etc, or sounds within your house from a teenagers bedroom or family room.
  2. How big is the space you want to be soundproofed?
  3. What space needs to be soundproofed? i.e. Is it a concrete lined basement, a stud partitioned room, a loft conversion or a brick walled room.
  4. Where is the major source of noise emanating from? i.e. Above, through the ceiling, windows, doors, floors or walls, or a combination of everything.

Your answers to such queries will enable you to receive itemised quotes for the different solutions available that match your needs. The parts of your room that are causing the biggest noise issues may each require different solutions.


To soundproof any kind of room requires 2 key components:

  1. Improve the absorption of sound.
  2. Minimise sound reverberation and amplifying.

An on-site survey is going to be needed to assess the areas that need to be improved.

Solutions from the survey will include adding some materials of different masses and densities to help increase the soundproofing properties of the room. This additional mass will help to improve absorption of the sound energy through the use of acoustic rubber or foam to achieve the maximum noise reduction impacts.

Any uninsulated voids in the room might need some type of muffling material to be installed between them to lower sound resonation. If you think about a drum or wooden cajon, you're looking at a sound increasing void enclosed within a resonating material; basically what you may encounter inside floor and ceiling joists, or wall cavities.

Combined layers of materials with different masses and densities work better at absorbing sound than a solitary layer of one material type. The diverse materials will isolate different sound frequencies and deliver a more harmonious feeling and auditory experience to a room.

Part E of the Building Regulations focus on the soundproofing of residential properties, and must be applied by any soundproofing specialist in Ottery St Mary. Such regulations should be observed so as to protect yourself and neighbours from being negatively impacted by noise pollution.

Watch out for contractors bearing the logos of the Institute of Acoustics or the Association of Noise Consultants to be certain you're using a business that's fully qualified and knowledgeable in the soundproofing industry. Any Ottery St Mary contractor showing IOA or ANC accreditation will have been appraised to make sure they provide the highest standards, quality and reliability of workmanship within the industry.

Soundproofing Foam Ottery St Mary

I recently thought that I'd take a look at what property owners in Ottery St Mary are searching online for in relation to soundproofing, and it appears that when looking on Google and other search engines one of the most commonplace requests was "soundproofing foam". And from a purely local point of view enquiries include things like "soundproofing foam Ottery St Mary". That's actually quite worrying, because it would suggest that Ottery St Mary homeowners are under the impression that soundproofing foam products are suitable for reducing their noise pollution problems.

The last thing I want to do is spoil your day, but if you're convinced that the din from your noisy next door neighbours in Ottery St Mary can be blocked out with this kind of product, you're barking up the wrong tree.

Stopping the transmission of noise is not the function of the familiar "egg box" style foam, which was in fact designed for use in music studios and similar surroundings, where it can enhance the sound clarity in a room, and reduce echoing, resonation and amplifying. This type of soundproofing foam isn't effective in preventing noise from penetrating a neighbouring wall, or stopping sound from moving around the rooms of your home. As opposed to blocking it, soundproofing foam allows sound to pass through it, because it is actually porous.

If however, you are building a music studio, this might be a useful product for you to use, and can be found in various thicknesses (typically 25mm and 50mm), and in different sheet and tile sizes.

Soundproofing or Acoustic Underlay Ottery St Mary

If you'd like to cut down the noise you experience in your Ottery St Mary property without causing too much disruption, why not think about installing some soundproofing underlay on your floor surfaces These are okay for use under engineered wood, vinyl planks, laminate or carpet floor coverings, and are suitable for both concrete and wood floors.

Acoustic underlay is especially beneficial when there's lots of impact as opposed to airborne noise. A recent increase in the popularity of "hard" floor finishes in Ottery St Mary, means that problems with impact noise are becoming ever more common. Rooms upstairs are the main origin of such issues, with moving furniture, general foot traffic and children running around being frequent concerns.

Although some carpet stores might try to sell you regular carpet underlay, claiming that it has decent soundproofing attributes, this shouldn't be mistaken for genuine acoustic or soundproofing underlay. If you're encountering serious noise issues in your property in Ottery St Mary, go to a respected supplier and purchase a decent acoustic underlay that's appropriate for your specific needs.

While soundproofing underlay is an effective product for impact noise, some are far better than others when it comes to airborne noise like loud music, blaring TV's and shouting. Accordingly, before buying an underlay product it is vital to establish the specific types of noise you are hoping to minimise, and discuss this with the soundproofing expert or supplier.
