First it would be a good idea to learn how sound travels before we can identify ways to eliminate any excessive noise escaping from or intruding into your property.

Soundproofing Paulton Somerset (BS39)

Sound is able to travel in only two ways:

1. Through the vibration of objects or materials.

2. In open spaces by movement of air.

Sound can also travel through water, however unless you're planning to soundproof a pool or aquarium we'll just focus on the isolation through materials and air.


Any open ducting, ill fitted windows, gaps around doors and even electrical sockets and light fittings can all be responsible for the transmission of sound outside or into a room. All sounds and noise will initiate the vibration and movement of the air molecules, and this is what we hear. All sounds travel through the air in this same manner; it matters not if it's machinery, music, traffic, children playing or aeroplanes that creates the sound.

If you try to imagine your room as if it were a bucket, and you are trying to identify any leaks that need sealing before you can fill it up with water.


As sound travels through the air by vibrations, then it seems logical that such vibrations can be transferred to, absorbed by or reflected by various materials. The floors, walls and ceilings will all have an impact on how sound moves around an area, and may even transport those vibrations to other parts of a dwelling. Even in a room that is built from a dense material that's proofed against sound vibrations, such as a concrete cellar, the sound can be reflected and maybe even amplified to other areas of the dwelling.

How should we prevent these sounds and vibrations affecting other people? Soundproofing is the solution.


Consider covering a bare floor surface, which reflects and resonates sound, with a carpet or rug. Not only will such a simple and straightforward solution help reduce your problem with noise, but it can also perk up the room. Wall coverings or window drapes can also be used to boost soundproofing and are easy to install.

Locating and plugging any holes or gaps in the room, think light fittings, door frames, electrical sockets and windows, is also a simple task for a competent do-it-yourselfer. You can find specialist acoustic sealants in some builders merchants which repress the transfer of sound by absorbing it. They may be a bit more pricey than regular sealants or plaster, but are worth it for their soundproofing qualities.

For anybody redecorating a room or renovating a property, evaluate the soundproofing benefits of adding a supplementary layer of plasterboard or soundboard, (also known as sheet rock, gypsum board or drywall), while you're undertaking this project. This is an efficient and economical soundproofing material because of its dense nature. It's perfect for spaces such as music studios, home offices or movie rooms which are being built within the home. It is better to hire a reliable Paulton tradesman to put up the plasterboard unless you have some experience in this kind of work.

Soundproofer Quotes in Paulton Somerset

One final simple soundproofing treatment is to examine the materials from which your doors are made. If you've got hollow doors in your rooms you will find that they can resonate and vibrate with any sound that is aimed at them. If you're able to change to solid doors you'll find it improves your soundproofing more cheaply than some other solutions.


If the level of sound is excessive in your location, on account of traffic noise from a busy road nearby, or aircraft flying over for example, then more severe methods to reduce the excess noise may have to be explored. This is when appointing the services of a specialist soundproofing service will bring the most effective results.

The first questions you can expect to be asked are:

  1. What sounds or noise are you attempting to subdue? i.e. External things such as traffic noise, passing trains, next door neighbours etc, or sounds inside your home from a music studio or home cinema.
  2. What type of property or room do you want to soundproof? Is it a stud partition wall, a fully lined concrete wall or a brick wall etc.
  3. From which direction do the noises seem to be coming from? i.e. Through the ceiling, doors, windows, floor or walls or a mixture of all of these.
  4. How large is the area that you need to have soundproofed?

With answers to these questions a good quality soundproofing firm in Paulton will offer you solutions for your circumstances, and just as importantly, your spending budget. Remedies will vary in accordance with the different materials needed for each of the trouble spots within your environment.


Two key approaches are required to soundproof any kind of room or space:

  1. Minimise sound the reverberation and amplification of sound.
  2. Increase and maximise the amount of sound absorption.

A site survey will be necessary to assess the aspects that need to be improved.

A professional soundproofer will look at the different methods for adding mass and density to the areas with problems. This additional mass will include ways to enhance the absorption of noise by the use of acoustic rubber or foam to achieve the maximum impact of noise reduction.

Voids between floor joists might require insulation to eliminate the resonating space between them. If you imagine such spaces as similar to a drum or wooden cajon then you'll see that by leaving floor or ceiling joist spaces and wall cavities empty, you're effectively creating a sound amplification area.

Mixed layers of materials with different masses and densities do a better job of absorbing noise than a single 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 densities, layers and shapes within your soundproofing armoury are needed.

All soundproofing firms in Paulton have to follow the legislation for domestic buildings as set down in the Building Regulations (Part E). This regulation has the aim of protecting neighbours in the area from the effects of sound pollution.

The Association of Noise Consultants (ANC) and the Institute of Acoustics (IOA) are trade associations who offer qualifications and training, and are representative of the best in contractors and companies which offer soundproofing solutions. Only those Paulton firms that have been vetted and authorised by these trade associations for quality, reliability and professionalism are allowed to display the logo.
