Before we are able to discover techniques for countering sound pollution, we should understand precisely how sound travels and is transmitted.

Soundproofing Port Talbot Wales (SA12)

Basically, sound moves in two ways throughout your home:

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

2. By the vibration of air molecules.

As dolphin and whale song shows, sound also penetrates long distance through water, however unless your intention is to soundproof a swimming pool or aquarium we'll look only at the methods of soundproofing rooms and buildings.


Substantial levels of sound can be transmitted out of and into a room through gaps around doors, heating ducts, ill fitting windows and even electrical switches and sockets. What we hear and identify as sound is really the vibration of air molecules being picked up by our ear drum. It does not matter if it's nearby traffic, heavy machinery, passing aircraft, children playing or music, they all produce and transfer sound in the same way.

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


If sound moves through the air by vibration, then it stands to reason that this vibration can be transferred to, absorbed by or reflected by various materials. The ceilings, floors and walls will all have an effect on how sound travels around a room, and may even transfer that vibration to other parts of a property. Care should be taken with solid brick or concrete walls, such as in basements, since sound can be reflected and amplified to other areas of your home.

But, how can these sound transmitting effects be stopped from causing a problem? The answer is not surprisingly, soundproofing!


If you have bare floors or floorboards, think about laying a few rugs or cover with a carpet to help in reducing any vibrations and sound reflections. These soft coverings will help to soak up sounds but can also add a touch of elegance to a previously bare room. Hanging curtains and wall coverings can also prevent sound vibrations and reflections through windows and walls without the need for a team of professional soundproofers.

Look for areas in your room where noise can escape or come in; door frames, windows, electrical sockets and light fittings, and close off any holes or gaps. There are some unique acoustic sealants available on the market that suppress the sound waves, and do not transmit them to the surrounding materials. There will be a little difference in the price when compared to a standard sealant, however the soundproofing capabilities are far better and can make a massive difference to a room.

For those of you who are renovating a property or redecorating a room, look at the soundproofing benefits of adding another skin of soundboard or plasterboard, (also called gypsum board, sheet rock or drywall), whilst you are tackling this work. This is a dense type of boarding that is an economic and useful soundproofing material. If you're putting in a cinema room, study or music studio then plasterboard will help reduce sound transference from and to that room, and can be readily decorated after completion. It is far better to hire a specialist contractor near you to fit the plasterboard unless you have some experience in this type of work.

The first questions you will be asked are:

  1. Is it internal noise or external sounds that you need to target? i.e. To cut out neighbours, traffic noise or trains, or is it from internally created sounds from a home cinema or teenagers bedroom for example.
  2. From which direction does the noise seem to be coming? i.e. Through the ceiling, doors, flooring, windows or walls or a combination of all of these.
  3. What is the size of the area or room that must be soundproofed?
  4. What is the area you wish to soundproof made from? (i.e. a lined concrete wall, a plasterboarded partition wall or a brick wall).

Your answers to such questions will allow you to receive itemised quotes for the various available solutions that match your needs. Solutions will vary in line with the different materials required for each of the problem areas within your environment.


There are 2 areas that must be addressed to successfully soundproof any room:

  1. Improve and update the amount of sound absorption.
  2. Lessen the effect of sound reflection, vibration and amplification by solid surfaces.

To accurately determine the areas that need improvement, a site survey should be completed by a soundproofing expert.

Conclusions from the survey will probably include adding some materials with different masses and densities to help maximise the soundproofing capabilities of the area. Soundproofing can be enhanced by the addition of acoustic rubber and foam which absorbs sound waves and enhances and the sound quality of an area.

Voids between floor joists may need insulating to remove the resonating gap between them. If you visualise such spaces as similar to a drum or wooden cajon then you will see that by leaving floor or ceiling joist spaces and wall cavities open, you are effectively creating a noise amplification area.

Combined layers of materials with different masses and densities work better at absorbing noise than a solitary layer of one material type. The diverse materials will reduce different sound frequencies and provide a more harmonious auditory experience and feeling to a room.

All soundproofing providers in Port Talbot have to follow the guidelines for residential buildings as specified by the Building Regulations (Part E). Such requirements should be observed so as to protect yourself and neighbours from the harmful effects of sound pollution.

Look for contractors displaying the logos of the Institute of Acoustics or the Association of Noise Consultants to be sure you're using a business which is knowledgable and fully qualified in the soundproofing industry. Any Port Talbot company showing ANC or IOA accreditation will have been vetted to make sure they offer the highest reliability, quality and standards of work within the soundproofing industry.

Soundproofing Underlay Port Talbot

Installing an acoustic underlay is an excellent way of adding a degree of soundproofing to your property in Port Talbot without the need for any significant disruption. This is okay for use on timber or concrete floors and can be laid underneath engineered wood, vinyl planks, laminate, carpet, and various other flooring types.

Basically, acoustic underlay can be a particularly effective remedy when your issue is not so much airborne noise but primarily an impact noise problem. Impact noise has become a big problem in Port Talbot homes these days, with a rise in the popularity of hard floor finishes. Such things as general foot traffic, shifting furniture and children running around, are the type of noise that we are talking about here.

Don't confuse ordinary carpet underlay with genuine soundproofing or acoustic underlay, as some carpet suppliers might try to pass off such products, claiming that they're suitable. Make sure you invest in a good quality soundproofing underlay, if you have real noise issues.

Although the installation of soundproofing underlay can be very successful in reducing impact noise within a home, airborne noise such as constant talking, loud music and blaring TV's, can be a whole different ball game, with some underlays being far better than others and enjoying differing degrees of success. Consequently, it is essential to pinpoint the precise kinds of noise you're striving to reduce before selecting a particular underlay, and talk to your soundproofing expert or supplier about your particular situation.

Soundproofing Foam Port Talbot

It appears from doing some basic keyphrase research that one of the most commonplace searches on Google and other search engines is for "soundproofing foam" and for homeowners in Port Talbot, maybe "soundproofing foam Port Talbot". Now, that is rather worrying because this would imply that local householders are turning to soundproofing foam products as an answer to their noise issues in Port Talbot.

It is not my intention to be a bearer of bad news, but most soundproofing issues can't be solved with this sort of product, and if your goal is to reduce the din caused by noisy neighbours in Port Talbot, you will need to look elsewhere.

The "egg box" shaped foam which you regularly see for sale in sheet or tile form is not actually meant for stopping the transmission of noise, but was really developed for use in music studios and similar environments, to reduce echoing and resonation and improve the acoustic performance of a room. Acoustic foam like this is not good for stopping sound from travelling around your property, or preventing noise from passing through a party wall. Given that acoustic foam is spongy and porous, it actually permits sound to pass right through it, and hasn't got the consistency to stop it.

It may be that you're actually building a music studio in your house in Port Talbot, in which instance this foam could be handy for you. (Tags: Acoustic Foam Port Talbot, Soundproofing Foam Port Talbot, Music Room Soundproofing Port Talbot, Soundproof Foam Port Talbot).
