It's important to realise how sound travels around a structure before it is possible to find methods to stop it from occurring.

Soundproofing Polegate East Sussex (BN26)

Sound is able to travel in only two ways:

1. Through the air by vibration of air molecules.

2. Through the vibration of objects or materials.

Although sound also travels through water, unless you are eager to reduce sounds from an aquarium or pool, we will just be concerned with how to reduce sound levels in the rooms of a building.


Any heating ducts, ill fitted windows, gaps around doors and even electrical sockets and light fittings can all affect the transmission of sound into or outside a room. Any sound vibrates the air molecules and these vibrations are what we hear and identify as sound. No matter what the source of the noise; traffic, music, children playing, aeroplanes or heavy machinery, all sounds are produced and transferred in exactly the same manner.

Any openings within the room can be considered to be leaks and will have to be blocked.


Sound waves can additionally be reflected by, transferred to or absorbed by solid materials and structures. Sound will vibrate the ceilings, floors and walls of your rooms, and can cause a resonation effect which is transmitted outside the area. Even a solid concrete room, such as a cellar, can create a path of resonance which transmits sound waves, and sometimes amplify them, to other areas of a property.

How should we stop these sounds and vibrations affecting other people? Soundproofing is the remedy.


Consider covering a bare floor, which resonates and reflects sound, with a rug or carpet. These soft coverings will help absorb sounds but can also add a touch of style to a previously bare room. Curtains, especially heavy blackout types, can also repress any sounds from invading or escaping the area, cost-effectively and without the need for professional installation.

Look for areas in the rooms where sound can escape or come in; electrical sockets, windows, light fittings and door frames, and seal the holes or gaps. You can find specialist acoustic sealants in some DIY suppliers that suppress the transmission of sound by absorbing it. There could be a little difference in the price compared to a standard sealant, however the soundproofing abilities are a lot better and will make a huge difference to a room's level of soundproofing.

If you are going to be renovating or redecorating while tackling your soundproofing, then look into putting up an additional skin of plasterboard (also known as gyproc, drywall or sheet rock). This is a relatively dense type of boarding that's a perfect and economic soundproofing material. It is excellent if you're installing a studio, study or cinema room in your house in Polegate. It is better to hire a certified contractor near you to fit the plasterboard unless you are experienced in this task.

Lastly you should check out all doors in the room that you're soundproofing. Hollow doors are a fairly cheap option although their soundproofing capabilities are far from the best. Exchanging hollow core doors for solid core will boost the soundproofing of an area with only a little more cost.


If the sound levels are extreme in your area, on account of aircraft flying over, or heavy traffic on a busy road for instance, then more substantial methods to combat the excess noise may need to be explored. The best way to resolve these issues is to get hold of a professional soundproofing and acoustic firm from the local area.

Soundproofer Near Polegate East Sussex

Expect to answer the four following questions during an investigation of your particular soundproofing requirements:

  1. What sounds or noise are you seeking to reduce? i.e. External factors like aircraft, next door neighbours, street noise etc, or sounds inside your home from a music studio or family room.
  2. What is the area you wish to soundproof constructed from? (i.e. a fully lined concrete wall, a brick wall or a stud partition wall).
  3. From what direction does the sound seem to be coming from? i.e. Through the doors, windows, flooring, walls or ceiling or a mix of all of them.
  4. How big is the room that you want to have soundproofed?

A certified soundproofing company in Polegate will look at all of these aspects to provide solutions to your noise issues over a range of budgets. Remedies might vary in line with the different materials needed for each of the troublesome areas in your property.


To soundproof any kind of room requires two key components:

  1. Minimise sound amplifying and resonating.
  2. Update and improve the amount of sound absorption.

To precisely assess the areas that require improvement, a site survey must be conducted by a soundproofing specialist.

The experts will figure out ways of adding materials with different densities and masses to maximise the sound quality of the room. Soundproofing can be improved by the installation of acoustic rubber, foam and other materials which will absorb sound waves and enhance and the sound quality of a space.

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

Mixed layers of differing mass and density materials do a better job of absorbing noise than a single layer of one material type. This is because different frequencies are affected by different types of materials, therefore a diversity of layers, densities and shapes within your soundproofing armoury are required.

Part E of the Building Regulations focus on the soundproofing of residential properties, and will have to be followed by any installation company in Polegate. This regulation has the aim of protecting other residents in the area from the effects of noise pollution.

The Institute of Acoustics (IOA) and the Association of Noise Consultants (ANC) are trade bodies who offer training, qualifications and are representative of the best in contractors and companies that offer soundproofing solutions. Any Polegate contractor displaying IOA or ANC accreditation has been appraised to make certain they provide the highest reliability, standards and quality of workmanship within the soundproofing industry.

Acoustic Mineral Wool (AMW)

AMW (or acoustic mineral wool) is one of the most versatile products on the market for soundproofing homes and buildings in Polegate and has a range of applications for your sound absorption needs. Absorbing sound waves, improving acoustic performance and reducing reverberation, acoustic mineral wool is designed specifically for installation in the cavity spaces of floors, ceilings and walls.

Acoustic Mineral Wool Polegate

Acoustic mineral wool typically comes in 1200mm x 600mm slabs and is widely available in 25mm, 50mm, 75mm and 100mm thicknesses. Non-combustible and chemically inert, acoustic mineral wool is frequently made out of recycled raw materials. It won't react with metal wall ties, plastics, masonry, brickwork, or other materials that it comes into contact with, nor does it encourage the development of fungi, bacteria or mould.

Especially effective as a sound absorbing infill when installed in the gaps between suspended ceilings, flooring joists and stud partitioning, acoustic mineral wool is widely used in the building sector for thermal, fire and acoustic insulation. To observe Part E of the Building Regulations in relation to separating walls and floors, acoustic mineral wool can be used side by side with other acoustic materials.

Soundproofing Foam Polegate

I was fascinated to learn quite recently that one of the most popular soundproofing key phrases entered on Google was "soundproofing foam", and local searches included entries like "acoustic foam Polegate" and "soundproofing foam Polegate". This is somewhat perplexing, as it indicates a lack of understanding by local homeowners who seem to be of the opinion that their noise issues can be sorted out through the use of acoustic foam.

I don't wish to rain on your parade, but soundproofing foam is not the answer to most noise related issues, and is definitely not effective if you are hoping to filter out the racket from noisy neighbours in Polegate.

The familiar "egg box" style foam, that appears to be the trademark of soundproofing, isn't actually designed for stopping the transmission of noise, but is meant for the reduction of echoing and reverberation in music studios and similar surroundings, where it can also enhance the sound clarity in a room. Soundproofing foam of this sort isn't effective for stopping sound from moving around your home, or stopping noise from penetrating a wall. As opposed to blocking it, acoustic foam allows sound to pass through it, because it is actually porous.

If however, you are changing some free space into a music studio, this might be a valuable product for you to use, and can be found in different thicknesses (usually 25mm and 50mm), and in various sheet and tile sizes.

Acoustic or Soundproofing Underlay Polegate

One way of adding some extra soundproofing to your house in Polegate, without any serious disturbance, is to install soundproofing or acoustic underlay. Both concrete and wood floors are suitable surfaces for these acoustic underlays, and they can be installed under engineered wood, vinyl planks, carpet and laminate.

Basically, acoustic underlay can be an especially helpful remedy when your problem is not so much airborne noise but mainly an impact noise issue. Impact noise tends to be a big issue in Polegate properties these days, with an increase in "hard" floor finishes. The form of noise problems that we're talking about here is children running around, moving furniture and general footfall, particularly from upstairs rooms.

Don't confuse normal carpet underlay with authentic acoustic or soundproofing underlay, as some unprincipled carpet distributors may try to pass off such products, claiming that they're suitable substitutes. If you're experiencing significant noise problems in your home in Polegate, visit a respected dealer and purchase a decent acoustic underlay that's right for your specific situation.

Whilst impact noise can be substantially reduced through the use of acoustic underlays, they have varying degrees of success when it comes to deafening music, incessant talking and blaring TV's, and other airborne noises. Talking about the exact kinds of noise you're attempting to lower with your soundproofing specialist or supplier is essential, and this should help you to buy the best underlay product for your needs.
