First we need to appreciate just how sound travels and is transmitted before we can identify ways to reduce any excessive noise escaping from or intruding into your property.

Soundproofing Paddock Wood Kent (TN12)

Basically, sound moves in two ways throughout your home:

1. Through the vibration of objects or materials.

2. Through the air by vibration of air molecules.

As dolphin and whale song shows, sound also penetrates long distance through water, however unless you wish to soundproof a swimming pool or aquarium we'll look only at the strategies for soundproofing structures and rooms.

SOUND TRAVEL THROUGH THE AIR

If you check around your area to be soundproofed and discover heating ducts, gaps around doors, ill fitting windows and even electrical sockets and switches, these are all aspects that can cause the transmission of sound. What we hear as sound is essentially air molucules being vibrated and reaching our ear drums. It does not matter if it's children playing, machinery, busy traffic, passing aircraft or music, they all generate and transfer sound in the same way.

It is helpful to imagine your room as a boat and carefully inspect it for leaks that need to be plugged before you can dare to sail it.

SOUND THROUGH OBJECTS AND STRUCTURES

Sound waves can additionally be absorbed by, reflected by or transferred to solid materials and structures. Sound will cause vibrations in the ceilings, floors and walls of your rooms, and may lead to a resonating effect that is transferred beyond the area. Even in a room that is encased in a dense material that's somewhat resistant to sound vibrations, such as a concrete cellar, the sound can be reflected and maybe even amplified to other parts of the dwelling.

How do we stop these sound vibrations having an impact on others? Soundproofing of course.

SIMPLE STEPS IN SOUNDPROOFING

Think about covering a bare floor, which reflects and resonates sound, with a carpet or rug. These soft coverings will help soak up sounds but can also add a touch of style to an otherwise bare room. Hanging wall coverings and curtains can also dampen sound vibrations and reflections through windows and walls without the need to hire a professional team of soundproofing specialists.

Look for areas in your rooms where sound can escape or come in; doors, light fittings, sockets and windows, and stop up the gaps or holes. Stopping up the gaps and holes with a professional acoustic sealant found in many DIY stores and builders merchants, can make an enormous difference to how your room sounds. There may be a considerable difference in price when compared with a regular sealant, however the soundproofing capabilities are far better and can make a big difference to a room's level of soundproofing.

For anyone redecorating a room or renovating a property, evaluate the soundproofing properties of adding an extra layer of plasterboard or soundboard, (also known as gyproc, drywall or sheet rock), whilst you're undertaking this project. This is an economic and efficient soundproofing material owing to its dense nature. It is perfect if you're setting up a home cinema, home office or studio in your property in Paddock Wood. If you're not familiar with putting up studding and plasterboard, it's better to hire a professional team to guarantee the optimal soundproofing results from its installation.

One last simple soundproofing option is to look at the materials from which your doors are made. Whilst hollow doors are light and relatively inexpensive, their soundproofing attributes aren't the best. Solid core doors, whilst a tad more pricey, can do wonders for soundproofing a room.

Some areas, for instance those beside busy traffic routes or on aircraft flight paths, naturally have more sound issues and will require other ways to resolve the dilemma. You will receive the very best soundproofing results by hiring the services of an established soundproofing company.

Soundproofer Near Paddock Wood Kent

They will ask the four following questions during a basic assessment of your needs:

  1. What are the particular sounds that need to soundproofed? i.e. Is it sounds from inside your property such as a family room or music studio, or external noises such as overflying aircraft, neighbours playing loud music, traffic noise, etc.
  2. Which is the main area where the sound creates the most issues? i.e. Is it coming through doors, up through the floors, from the walls or down from above, or is it a combination of all factors.
  3. What is the room you wish to soundproof made from? (i.e. a brick wall, a fully lined concrete wall or a plasterboarded partition wall).
  4. How big is the area you need to have soundproofed?

With answers to these questions a good quality soundproofing installer in Paddock Wood will be able to supply you with solutions to suit your circumstances, and just as important, your spending budget. They'll offer different strategies to soundproof each of the trouble spots within your home.

PROFESSIONAL SOUNDPROOFING OF CEILINGS, WALLS and FLOORS

There are two areas that need to be addressed to soundproof any space:

  1. Improve sound absorption.
  2. Reduce the ways that sound is transmitted through and reflected by hard surfaces.

To accurately analyse the elements that need to be improved, a site survey should be performed by a professional soundproofing team.

The installer will work out ways of adding materials with different masses and densities to boost the sound absorption of the area. Soundproofing will be enhanced by the application of acoustic rubber and foam which will absorb excess noise and enhance and a room's sound quality.

Insulation between any voids will be improved to lessen the noise resonation and amplification of these "sound boxes". If you picture these spaces like a drum or wooden cajon then you will see that by leaving wall cavities and floor or ceiling joist spaces empty, you're effectively creating a sound amplifying area.

Combined layers of materials with different densities and masses work better at absorbing noise than a solitary layer of one material type. This is due to the fact that the various frequencies are absorbed differently by different materials, therefore a range of shapes, layers and densities within your soundproofing armoury are needed for the best results.

Any soundproofing firm in Paddock Wood will need to comply with the Part E of the Building Regulations, if your property is residential in nature. This set of regulations is a legally binding requirement to protect your neighbours and yourself from being affected by noise pollution in an environment where folks live and work.

Watch out for companies showing the logos of the Association of Noise Consultants or the Institute of Acoustics to ensure you are dealing with a business which is knowledgable and fully qualified in the soundproofing sector. Only those Paddock Wood companies that have been appraised and authorised by these organisations for professionalism, quality and reliability are allowed to display the logo.

Soundproofing Foam Paddock Wood

I recently thought I'd take a look at what householders in Paddock Wood are searching for with regards to soundproofing, and evidently when looking on Google and Bing one of the most commonly types in requests is "soundproofing foam". And on a local basis searches include "soundproofing foam Paddock Wood". Now, this suggests that many people are looking for a solution to soundproof their properties in Paddock Wood, and are hoping that soundproofing foam will achieve this.

The last thing I wish to do is be a bearer of bad tidings, but if you're convinced that the din from your noisy next door neighbours in Paddock Wood can be reduced with this sort of product, you are wide of the target.

The "egg box" shaped foam which you often see for sale in sheet or tile form isn't actually intended for stopping the transmission of noise, but is really intended for use in music studios and comparable settings, to reduce echoing and resonation and improve the acoustic performance of a room. This type of acoustic foam isn't effective in stopping sound from passing through a party wall or preventing noise from travelling freely around the rooms of your home. As it is porous, soundproofing foam actually absorbs sound and lets sound pass through, rather than stopping it.

If however, you're building a music room, this could be a useful product for you to use, and is available in different thicknesses (usually 25 millimetre and 50 millimetre), and in various tile and sheet sizes.

Acoustic Mineral Wool (AMW)

Having a range of applications for your noise reduction needs, AMW (or acoustic mineral wool) is one of the handiest products for the soundproofing of houses in Paddock Wood. Acoustic mineral wool is specifically designed to be installed in the cavity spaces of floors, ceilings and walls, to reduce reverberations, absorb sound waves and improve acoustic performance.

Acoustic Mineral Wool Paddock Wood

Generally available in slabs of 1200mm x 600mm, AMW also comes in different thicknesses (25 millimetres, 50 millimetres, 75 millimetres and 100 millimetres). Often partly made with recycled raw materials (around 20%), AMW is chemically inert, and is non-combustible. It will not react with metal wall ties, masonry, brickwork, plastics, or other materials that it comes into close contact with, nor does it encourage the growth of fungi, mould or bacteria.

Notably effective as a sound absorbing infill when installed in the gaps between stud partitioning, floor joists and suspended ceilings, acoustic mineral wool is widely used in the building industry for thermal, fire and acoustic insulation. To comply with Part E of the Building Regulations in relation to separating floors and walls, AMW can be used in conjunction with other acoustic materials.
