First of all we should appreciate just how sound travels before we can find ways to eliminate any excessive noise intruding into or escaping from your property.

Soundproofing Prestonpans Scotland (EH32)

Basically, sound travels in two ways throughout your home:

1. The vibration or air molecules through the air.

2. Through the vibration of objects or materials.

As dolphin and whale songs can show, sound also penetrates long distance through water, but unless your aim is to soundproof an aquarium or pool we will just look at the methods of soundproofing rooms and buildings.


Any gaps around doors, ill fitting windows, heating ducts and even electrical sockets and light fittings can all affect the transmission of sound outside or into a room. What we identify and hear as sound is really air molucules being vibrated and reaching our ear drums. All sounds are transferred through the air in this same manner; it doesn't matter if it's traffic, children playing, music playing, heavy machinery or passing aircraft that generates the sound.

Any holes in a room can be viewed as a leak and will have to be plugged.


As sound travels through the air by vibration, then it stands to reason that this vibration can be transferred to, absorbed by or reflected by different solid materials. The walls, floors and ceilings will all have an impact on how sound travels around an area, and can even transport those vibrations to other rooms in a property. Care must be taken with solid brick or concrete walls, such as a cellar, as sound can be transmitted and sometimes even amplified to other areas of your home.

How should we prevent these sounds and vibrations affecting other folks? Soundproofing is the answer.


Consider covering a bare floor surface, which resonates and reflects sound, with a carpet or rug. The rugs or other soft coverings will help soak up noises and can also add a bit of style to a previously bare room. Window drapes and wall coverings can also be employed to enhance soundproofing and are simple to install.

Finding and stopping up any gaps around the rooms, think sockets, windows, light fittings and door frames, is also a straightforward task for a capable DIY'er. Stopping up the holes and gaps with a specialist acoustic sealant that can be purchased in many DIY stores and builders merchants, will make a huge difference to sound transmission in your room. There may be a little difference in the price when compared with a regular sealant, but the soundproofing abilities are far better and can make a massive difference to a room's soundproofing.

If you are fortunate enough to be redecorating or renovating while considering your soundproofing requirements, then think about the possibility of installing an extra skin of plasterboard (also referred to as drywall, sheet rock or gyproc). Plasterboard is a very dense material that's both effective and economical for soundproofing purposes. If you're putting in a movie room, study or studio then plasterboard will help to minimise sound pollution for that room, and can be decorated easily after installation. If you do decide on plasterboard to aid your soundproofing exploits it is better to bring in a professional fitter in Prestonpans, to gain the maximum benefit from its installation.

Lastly you need to examine all doors in the rooms that you're soundproofing. Hollow doors are a comparatively cheap option although their soundproofing qualities are far from ideal. Exchanging hollow core doors for solid core will boost the soundproofing qualities of a room with only a small extra cost.


If the sound levels are high in your location, because of aircraft passing overhead, or heavy traffic on a nearby road for instance, then more substantial methods to deal with the excess noise may have to be investigated. The best way to resolve these issues is to get in touch with an established soundproofing and acoustic company from the local area.

The initial questions you will be asked are:

  1. What area needs soundproofing? i.e. Is it a concrete lined cellar, an attic conversion, a brick walled room or a plasterboard partition room.
  2. What is the size of the room or area that must be soundproofed?
  3. What sounds or noise are you looking to reduce? i.e. External factors such as overflying aircraft, neighbours playing loud music, road noise etc, or sounds inside your house from a music studio or home cinema.
  4. What is the main spot where the sound creates the biggest issues? i.e. Is it coming down from above, up through the flooring, from the walls or through windows/doors, or is it a mix of all these factors.

Your answers to such queries will allow you to get estimates for the various available solutions to suit your situation. The parts of your room that are causing the biggest issues may each need different solutions.


To soundproof any kind of room requires two key components:

  1. The absorption of sound needs to be maximised.
  2. Minimise sound the reverberation and amplification of sound.

To effectively assess the areas that need to be improved, an on-site survey needs to be carried out by a soundproofing specialist.

The team will work out ways to add materials with different masses and densities to increase the sound absorption of the area. This additional mass will include ways to improve absorption of the sound energy by means of acoustic foam or rubber to achieve the maximum noise reduction impacts.

Any noticeable voids in the area might require some sort of muffling material to be inserted between them to lessen sound resonation. If you envision such spaces as similar to a drum or wooden cajon then you'll understand that by leaving wall cavities and floor or ceiling joist spaces empty, you're effectively creating a noise amplification area.

It is best to use mixed layers of different density materials to soak up undesired noises than a single layer fabricated from one type of material. This is due to the fact that different frequencies are affected by different materials, therefore a variety of shapes, densities and layers within your soundproofing armoury are needed.

Part E of the Building Regulations deal with the soundproofing of domestic properties, and will have to be followed by any soundproofing specialist in Prestonpans.

Soundproofing Foam Prestonpans

I was interested to discover recently that one of the most commonplace soundproofing key phrases entered on Google and Bing was "soundproofing foam", and for local searches "soundproofing foam Prestonpans" and "acoustical foam Prestonpans". Now, this would imply that a lot of folks are trying to find a solution to soundproof their properties, and are hoping that soundproofing foam will do this.

The last thing I wish to do is ruin anyone's day, but if you are convinced that the din from your noisy next door neighbours in Prestonpans can be eliminated with a product like this, you are on the wrong track.

Blocking out noise is not the function of the familiar "egg box" shaped foam, which was in fact designed for use in music studios and comparable surroundings, where it can enhance the sound clarity in a room, and reduce echoing, resonation and amplification. This product is not effective in preventing noise from penetrating a wall from a neighbouring property, or even to stop sound from travelling around your property and being a nuisance. Rather than blocking it, soundproofing foam actually allows sound to pass through it, because it is in fact porous.

If however, you are building a music studio, this might be a handy product for you, and can be bought in various thicknesses (normally 25mm and 50mm), and in different sheet and tile sizes.
