It is crucial to realise how sound travels and is transmitted around an area before it's possible to identify solutions to stop it from occurring.

Soundproofing Patchway Gloucestershire (BS34)

Sound can move in only two ways:

1. By the vibration of air molecules.

2. Within and around a solid object by vibration and reflection.

Sound is also transmitted through water, however unless you're looking at soundproofing a swimming pool or aquarium we'll simply deal with the isolation through materials and air.


Sounds can be transferred into and out of a room through gaps around doors, heating ducts, single glazed windows and even electrical switches and sockets. What we identify and hear as sound is essentially the vibration of air molecules reaching our ear drums. It doesn't matter whether it's aircraft, music, kids playing, machinery or busy traffic, they all create and transfer sound in the same way.

If you try to visualise your room as if it were a bucket, you're trying to identify any leaks which need sealing before you fill it up with liquid.


As sound travels through the air by vibrations, then it seems reasonable to assume that such vibrations can be absorbed by, reflected by or transferred to different materials. Sound will cause vibrations in the walls, floors and ceilings of your rooms, and can lead to a resonation effect that is transferred outside the room itself. Care must be taken with brick or solid concrete walls, such as in basements, because sound can be reflected and sometimes even amplified to other rooms in your house.

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


If you've got bare floorboards or floors, consider covering them with carpet or laying a few rugs to help reduce any sound reflections and vibrations. These soft coverings and rugs will help soak up noises but can also add a bit of elegance to an otherwise bare room. Hanging curtains and wall coverings can also dampen sound vibrations and reflections through walls and windows without the need to hire a team of professional soundproofing installers.

Another inexpensive and do-it-yourself remedy is to plug any holes or gaps around doors, sockets, windows and light fittings. There are some unique acoustic sealants available to buy which absorb the sound waves, and don't transfer them to the surrounding materials. There will be a little difference in price when compared with a regular sealant, however the soundproofing abilities are much better and can make an enormous difference to a room's soundproofing.

If you are luckily enough to be redecorating or renovating while considering your soundproofing requirements, then look at the possibility of putting up an additional layer of plasterboard (also known as gypsum board, drywall or sheet rock). Plasterboard is a dense material that's both economical and efficient for soundproofing an area. It is great if you are installing a study, games room or movie room in your property in Patchway. It's wise to hire an experienced contractor near you to put up the plasterboard unless you're experienced in this task.

One last simple soundproofing treatment is to check the materials from which your doors are made. Hollow doors are a relatively cheap option although their soundproofing qualities are far from perfect. If you're able to change to solid core doors you will discover that it boosts your room's soundproofing at little extra cost.


Some areas, for instance those on aircraft flight-paths or next to busy traffic routes, have naturally more sound pollution problems and will require other ways to tackle the dilemma. This is an instance when the services of a professional soundproofing company will deliver the most effective results.

The first questions you will be asked are:

  1. Exactly where is the major source of the sound emanating from? i.e. Overhead, through the walls, floors, doors, ceiling or windows, or a combination of everything.
  2. How large is the room requiring soundproofing?
  3. Is it internal sounds or external noise that you wish to tackle? i.e. To cut out neighbours playing loud music, passing trains or street noise, or is it from internally generated sounds from a music studio or family room for example.
  4. What is the room you wish to soundproof made from? (i.e. a plasterboarded partition wall, a fully lined concrete wall or a brick wall).

An established soundproofing installer in Patchway will consider all these points to provide remedies for your sound problems over a range of budgets. Solutions might vary according to the different materials needed for each of the troublesome areas within your property.


To soundproof any type of room requires 2 key approaches:

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

A site survey is going to be required to examine the areas that need improving.

A professional soundproofer will investigate the different ways to add density and mass to the problem areas. The use of acoustic foams and rubbers of different mass and density will help in absorbing noises and reduce reflections and transmission sources.

Insulation between any existing voids will be upgraded or improved to lessen the sound resonation and amplification of these sound boxes. If you envision these spaces as similar to a drum then you can see that by leaving floor or ceiling joist spaces and wall cavities open, you're effectively creating a sound amplifying area.

It is far better to use mixed layers of different density materials to deaden unwelcome noises than a solitary layer made of one material. This is due to the fact that different frequencies are affected by different types of materials, therefore a variety of shapes, layers and densities within your soundproofing armoury are needed.

Part E of the Building Regulations focus on the soundproofing of residential properties, and will need to be adhered to by any installation company in Patchway. This set of regulations is a legally binding requirement to protect your neighbours and yourself from being affected by sound pollution in a setting where people live and work.

Watch out for companies bearing the logos of the Institute of Acoustics (IOA) or the Association of Noise Consultants (ANC) to ensure you're using a business which is knowledgable and fully qualified in the soundproofing industry. A trustworthy soundproofing company in Patchway will have been verified for the quality and professionalism of their work to have been certified as a member of these trade organisations.

Soundproofing Foam Patchway

I recently thought I'd look into what home and business owners in Patchway are searching online for with regards to soundproofing, and it would appear that when looking on Google and Yahoo one of the most commonplace requests was "soundproofing foam". And on a local basis queries include "soundproofing foam Patchway". This is somewhat bewildering, as it would suggest a lack of awareness by local property owners who seem to be of the opinion that their noise pollution problems can be resolved through the use of soundproofing foam.

I'm not trying to be the bearer of bad news, but the simple truth is that acoustic foam isn't likely to be the answer, and will definitely not eliminate the din caused by noisy neighbours in Patchway.

The familiar "egg box" style foam, that appears to be the trademark of soundproofing, wasn't actually developed for stopping the transmission of noise, but is meant for the reduction of echoing and reverberation in music studios and comparable spaces, where it can also improve the acoustic performance of a room. This type of acoustic foam is not efficient at stopping sound from passing through a wall or preventing noise from moving around the rooms of your property. As acoustic foam is spongy and porous, it actually lets sound pass through it, and does not have the density to stop it.

It may be that you actually have a music studio in your house in Patchway, in which instance this product might be extremely useful for you.
