Firstly it will help if we discover exactly how sound travels and is transmitted before we are able to find ways to eliminate any sound intrusion or escape from your property.

Soundproofing Parkeston Essex (CO12)

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

1. Through objects by the vibration of the material.

2. Through the air by vibration of air molecules.

As whale and dolphin song demonstrates, sound also travels long distances through water, however unless your intention is to soundproof a swimming pool or aquarium we will just look at the methods of soundproofing rooms and structures.


Any heating ducts, gaps around doors, ill fitted windows and even light fittings and electrical sockets can all affect the transmission of sound into or outside a room. Any sound vibrates the molecules in the air and these vibrations are what we identify and hear as sound. All sounds are transmitted through the air in this same way; it matters not if it's music playing, machinery, aircraft, children playing or busy traffic that creates the sound.

If you try to imagine your room as a bucket, you're trying to identify any leaks to seal before you can fill it with water.


We all know that sounds are merely the vibration of air reaching the ear, but that vibration is also reflected by or transferred to solid materials. Sound will vibrate the walls, floors and ceilings of your rooms, and may cause a resonating effect that is transferred outside of the area. Even in a room that is built from a solid material that is somewhat resistant to sound vibrations, such as a concrete lined basement, the sound can be transmitted and possibly even amplified to other rooms in the structure.

However, how can these effects be stopped from creating an issue? The answer is not surprisingly, soundproofing!


A bare floor is more resonant than one covered by a carpet or rug. Such a simple solution can enhance a room and help to dampen down any noise at the same time. Curtains, in particular substantial blackout types, will also stifle any noises from escaping or invading the area, economically and without requiring professional soundproofing.

Search for areas in your room where noise can escape or come in; light fittings, door frames, electrical sockets and windows, and close off any holes or gaps. Stopping up the holes and gaps with an acoustic sealant that can be purchased in many DIY shops and builders merchants, can make a big difference to how your room sounds. There could be a considerable difference in price when compared with a standard sealant, however the soundproofing abilities are a lot better and can make a huge difference to a room's level of soundproofing.

If you're luckily enough to be renovating or redecorating while tackling your soundproofing requirements, then look into putting up an extra skin of plasterboard (also known as gyproc, sheet rock or drywall). This is an economic and efficient soundproofing material due to its dense nature. If you're fitting a studio, home office or movie room then plasterboard will help to minimise sound pollution for that room, and can be readily decorated after installment. It's wise to hire a competent Parkeston tradesman to fit the plasterboard unless you have experience in its application.

Lastly you need to examine all doors in the room you're looking to soundproof. Hollow doors are relatively cheap although their soundproofing qualities are far from the best. If you are able to change to solid doors you'll find it improves your soundproofing more cheaply than some other alternatives.


If your home is in a high noise pollution location, such as near an airport or next to busy roads, you will have to be more radical in your efforts to boost the quality of the soundproofing in your house. You will get the best possible soundproofing outcome by retaining the services of a professional soundproofing company.

Be ready to answer the four following questions during an investigation of your soundproofing requirements:

  1. Where is the major source of noise coming from? i.e. Overhead, through the ceiling, walls, doors, windows or flooring, or a combination of all sorts of things.
  2. How big is the room that needs soundproofing?
  3. What kind of property or room do you want to soundproof? Is it a brick wall, a stud partition wall or a fully lined concrete wall etc.
  4. What sounds or noise are you attempting to subdue? i.e. External things like overflying aircraft, neighbours, traffic noise etc, or sounds within your home from a music studio or family room.

With accurate answers to these queries a trustworthy soundproofing firm in Parkeston will figure out solutions to suit your circumstances, and just as important, your allotted budget. The areas of your room that are causing the biggest noise issues may each need different remedies.


There are 2 key areas that need to be dealt with to successfully soundproof any space:

  1. The absorption of sound needs to be improved.
  2. Cut down on the effects on the way sound is reflected off and transmitted through hard surfaces.

To effectively assess the aspects that need to be improved, an on-site survey should be carried out by a soundproofing specialist.

The installer will work out ways of adding materials with different masses and densities to enhance the sound absorption of the area. Soundproofing will be boosted by the installation of acoustic foam and rubber which absorbs excess noise and improves and the sound quality of a room.

Voids between floor joists might require insulating to eliminate the resonating space between them. Wall cavities or flooring and ceiling voids can all be assimilated with a drum, where the space inside acts like an amplification source for any unwelcome sounds.

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

All soundproofing technicians in Parkeston have to follow the regulations for residential properties specified by the Building Regulations (Part E). Such legislation should be followed so as to safeguard yourself and neighbours from being negatively impacted by noise 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 companies and contractors which offer soundproofing solutions.

Acoustic Underlay Parkeston

Installing a soundproofing or acoustic underlay is a terrific way of adding a bit of soundproofing to your Parkeston property without the need for any significant disturbance. This is designed for use on concrete or wooden floors and can be used under carpet, engineered wood, laminate, vinyl planks, and several other types of flooring.

Acoustic underlay is particularly effective where there's an issue with impact noise rather than airborne noise. The current popularity of hard floor finishes means that impact noise has become an ever-increasing problem for householders in Parkeston. The form of noise issues we're talking about here is general footfall, children running around and shifting furniture, especially from upstairs rooms.

Don't confuse normal carpet underlay with genuine soundproofing or acoustic underlay, since some carpet retailers might try to pass off such products, claiming that they are suitable substitutes. If you're encountering severe noise issues in your home in Parkeston, contact a professional supplier and purchase a good quality acoustic underlay that's appropriate for your particular needs.

Whilst impact noise can be dramatically lowered through the use of acoustic underlay, it's got varying levels of success with regards to blaring TV's, incessant talking and deafening music, and other airborne noises. Accordingly, when picking out a product it's vital to determine the specific sorts of noise you are looking to lower, and discuss this with the soundproofing expert or supplier in advance.

AMW (Acoustic Mineral Wool)

For you noise reduction needs in Parkeston, acoustic mineral wool (AMW) is one of the most useful materials for soundproofing houses or other structures, and has various applications. Absorbing sound waves, dampening vibrations and enhancing acoustic performance, acoustic grade mineral wool is specifically designed to be installed in the cavity spaces of walls, floors and ceilings.

Acoustic Mineral Wool Parkeston

Generally available in slabs of 1200mm x 600mm, acoustic mineral wool also comes in several thicknesses (25mm, 50mm, 75mm and 100mm). Non-flammable and chemically inert, AMW is often partly made with recycled raw materials (around 20%). It will not encourage the development of mould, fungi or bacteria, nor does it react with any materials that it comes into contact with (i.e. masonry, brickwork, metal wall ties or plastics).

Widely used in the building sector for its fire, thermal and acoustic insulation properties, AMW is especially effective as a sound absorbing filler when installed in the spaces between flooring joists, stud partitions and suspended ceilings. When it comes to separating walls and floors, and when used in conjunction with other soundproofing products, acoustic mineral wool can help in compliance with Part E of the Building Regulations.

Soundproofing Foam Parkeston

I was intrigued to learn just recently that one of the most commonplace soundproofing search phrases entered on Google and other search engines was "soundproofing foam", and for local searches "acoustic foam Parkeston" and "soundproofing foam Parkeston". Now, this would imply that many folks are hunting for a solution to soundproof their properties in Parkeston, and are hoping that soundproofing foam will achieve this.

I'm not trying to ruin your day, but the simple truth is that this sort of product isn't likely to be the magic formula you're looking for, and will definitely not block out the din caused by noisy neighbours in Parkeston.

The customary "egg box" shaped foam, that appears to be the hallmark of soundproofing, isn't actually designed for stopping the transmission of noise, but has the purpose of reducing echoing and resonation in music studios and comparable surroundings, where it can also enhance the sound clarity in a room. It's not the right material preventing noise from travelling around your house, or stopping sound from passing through the wall of a neighbouring building. Rather than blocking it, acoustic foam actually allows sound to pass through it, because it is in fact porous.

It may be that you actually have a music studio in your property in Parkeston, in which case this product could be extremely useful for you.
