Whatever your requirements are, soundproofing will help to maintain your sanity and peace of mind.

It is important for us to understand how sound travels around a building before it's possible to discover solutions to stop it from occurring.

Soundproofing Prestonpans Scotland (EH32)

Basically, sound travels in two ways around a room:

1. By vibration of solid materials and structures.

2. By the vibration of air molecules.

Sound can also travel through water, however unless you are looking at soundproofing a swimming pool or aquarium we will just concentrate on the isolation through materials and air.


Sound can be transferred into and out of a room through open ducting, ill fitted windows, gaps around doors and even light fittings and electrical sockets. What we hear as sound is basically the vibration of air molecules reaching our ear drums. All sounds travel through the air in the same fashion; it matters not if it's traffic, music, heavy machinery, aircraft or children playing that creates the sound.

If you can think of your room as a bucket, you are attempting to identify any leaks which need sealing before you can fill it up with water.


If sound travels through the air by vibrations, then it stands to reason that such vibrations can be reflected by, absorbed by or transferred to different materials. Sound can be transferred around a building from its original source through the vibration of walls, floors and ceilings. Care should be taken with solid concrete or brick walls, such as in basements, as sound can be reflected and sometimes even amplified to other rooms in your home.

However, how can these sound transmitting effects be stopped from creating an issue? The answer is of course, soundproofing!


Consider covering a bare floor surface, which resonates and reflects sound, with a rug or carpet. Not only can such a simple and straightforward solution help to reduce your problem with noise, it can also perk up the room. Hanging curtains and wall coverings can also avoid sound vibrations and reflections through walls and windows without the need to hire a professional team of soundproofing specialists.

Another inexpensive and do-it-yourself resolution is to plug any holes or gaps around windows, doors, electrical sockets and light fittings. There are some unique acoustic sealants available on the market which suppress the sound waves, and do not transfer them to the surrounding materials. Acoustic sealants can be a little more pricey than normal sealant products, but the special design has far greater soundproofing performance and is worth the additional cost.

If you're going to be renovating or redecorating while dealing with your soundproofing requirements, then look into installing an additional skin of plasterboard (also known as sheet rock, drywall or gyproc). Plasterboard is a very dense material that's both economical and efficient for soundproofing purposes. If you are fitting a cinema room, studio or study then plasterboard will help reduce sound pollution for that room, and can be readily decorated after installment. It is wise to hire a professional Prestonpans tradesman to put up the plasterboard unless you've got experience in its application.

One last easy soundproofing treatment is to examine the materials from which your doors are made. If you have hollow doors installed in your rooms you will find they can vibrate with any sound that they experience. Solid core doors, whilst a bit more pricey, can have a sizeable effect on the soundproofing qualities of a room.


If your home is in a high noise pollution area, such as near an airport or next to busy roads, you will need to be more inspired in your efforts to improve the soundproofing qualities of your property. The best solution for resolving these problems is to contact a competent acoustic and soundproofing company from your local region.

The initial questions you can expect to be asked are:

  1. What is the size of the space or room that needs to be soundproofed?
  2. What sounds or noise are you looking to suppress? i.e. External factors like street noise, neighbours, overflying aircraft etc, or internal sounds from a music studio or family room.
  3. What area needs to be soundproofed? i.e. Is it a loft conversion, a concrete lined cellar, a brick walled room or a plasterboard partition room.
  4. Where is the majority of the noise pollution emanating from? The doors, flooring, windows, walls or ceiling.

With honest answers to these queries a trustworthy soundproofing installer in Prestonpans will offer you solutions to suit your situation, and just as important, your budget. There'll be different remedies for each of the main key areas of the room that you want to soundproof.


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

  1. Lessen the effect of sound vibration, amplification and reflection by hard surfaces.
  2. Increase and maximise the level of sound absorption.

An on-site survey is going to be needed to pinpoint the elements that need improving.

A professional soundproofing company will look at the different ways to add density and mass to the troublesome areas. Soundproofing can be enhanced by the application of acoustic rubber, foam and other materials which absorbs excess noise and improves and the sound quality of an area.

Any voids in the room may require some sort of deadening material to be placed between them to reduce noise resonation. Wall cavities or flooring and ceiling voids can all be likened to a drum, where the space inside acts like an amplification source for any unwelcome noise.

It is better to use mixed layers of different densities to absorb unwelcome noises than a single layer made of one kind of soundproofing material. This is due to the fact that the different material densities react in different ways with various frequencies and will provide a better overall solution to your soundproofing.

All soundproofing contractors in Prestonpans will be needing to follow the legislation for domestic properties as laid out in the Building Regulations (Part E). These regulations should be adopted in order to protect yourself and others from being negatively impacted by noise pollution.

Look out for companies bearing the logos of the Institute of Acoustics or the Association of Noise Consultants to be certain you're using a business that's fully qualified and knowledgeable in the soundproofing sector. Only those Prestonpans businesses that have been appraised and approved by these trade bodies for professionalism, reliability and quality are allowed to bear the logo.

Soundproofing Foam Prestonpans

It seems from some simple keyphrase research that a frequent search on Google and Bing is for "soundproofing foam" and for local householders, "soundproofing foam Prestonpans". Now, that is quite worrying because this would imply that local householders are looking to soundproofing foam as an answer to their noise problems in Prestonpans.

It is not my intention to be a bearer of bad tidings, but most soundproofing issues can't be helped by this product, and if your objective is to filter out the din caused by noisy next door neighbours in Prestonpans, you'll need to look elsewhere.

Stopping the transmission of noise is not the purpose of this familiar "egg box" style foam, which was actually designed for use in music studios and similar situations, where it can enhance the sound clarity in a room, and reduce resonation, echoing and amplification. Acoustic foam of this sort isn't good for stopping noise from travelling freely around your house, or stopping sound from passing through a wall. As acoustic foam is porous and spongy, it actually allows sound to pass right through it, and has not got the consistency to inhibit it.

Having said that, if you happen to be working on a project such as a music room, this material could be beneficial for you, and can be acquired in different sheet sizes and various thicknesses (generally 25mm and 50mm).

Soundproofing or Acoustic Underlay Prestonpans

If you're experiencing lots of noise in your Prestonpans property, an easy way to minimise this without too much disturbance is by adding some acoustic or soundproofing underlay to your floors. Both concrete and wood floors are suitable for these underlays, and they can be installed beneath laminate, vinyl planks, carpet and engineered wood.

Soundproofing underlay is particularly effective where there's an issue with impact as opposed to airborne noise. The increased popularity of hard floor finishes means that impact noise has become an increasing issue for property owners in Prestonpans. The kind of noise problems we are referring to here is kids running around, shifting furniture and general foot traffic, particularly from rooms upstairs.

Although some unscrupulous carpet stores may attempt to sell you standard carpet underlay with claims that it has good noise cancelling qualities, this shouldn't be mistaken for authentic soundproofing underlay. If you are encountering significant noise problems in your home in Prestonpans, contact a respectable vendor and buy a good quality soundproofing underlay that is right for your specific circumstances.

While the installation of acoustic underlay can be highly effective in reducing impact noise within a home, airborne noise like blaring TV's, deafening music and shouting, can be another thing altogether, with some products being much better than others and having varying degrees of success. You should discuss the exact sorts of noise you're hoping to minimise with the supplier or soundproofing expert, and this should help you determine the best underlay product for your noise beating needs.

Acoustic Mineral Wool

One of the most versatile materials available for soundproofing homes in Prestonpans, AMW (otherwise known as acoustic mineral wool) has several applications for your noise reduction requirements. Designed specifically for installation in the cavity spaces of floors, walls and ceilings, acoustic mineral wool is effective in dampening vibrations, enhancing acoustic performance and absorbing airborne sound.

Acoustic Mineral Wool Prestonpans

Usually available in slabs of 600mm x 1200mm, acoustic mineral wool also comes in different thicknesses (25mm, 50mm, 75mm and 100mm). Often partly made from recycled raw materials (around 20%), acoustic mineral wool is chemically inert, and is non-flammable. It does not encourage the growth of mould, fungi or bacteria, nor does it have a reaction with any substances or materials that it comes into close contact with (i.e. metal wall ties, masonry, plastics or brickwork).

When utilised as a sound absorbing infill between flooring joists, suspended ceilings and stud partitions, acoustic mineral wool is notably effective, and it's widely recognised in the construction sector for its thermal, acoustic and fire insulation properties. To conform to the Building Regulations (Part E) with regards to separating walls and floors, acoustic mineral wool can be used side by side with other soundproofing materials.
