It's crucial to realise how sound travels around a building before it is possible to find strategies to stop it from happening.

Soundproofing Radstock Somerset (BA3)

Sound can travel in a couple of ways:

1. By vibration of solid materials and structures.

2. Through the air by vibration of air molecules.

Although sound can also travel through liquids, unless you're eager to isolate noise from an aquarium or swimming pool, we'll just be interested in how to reduce sound transmission in the rooms of a structure.

SOUND TRAVELLING THROUGH THE AIR

Sound can be transmitted into and out of a room through ill fitting windows, open air-ducting, gaps around doors and even electrical sockets and light fittings. What we hear as sound is really air molucules being vibrated and being picked up by our ear drums. It does not matter if it's machinery, children playing, nearby traffic, aircraft or music playing, they all create and transfer sound in the same manner.

Any holes within a room can be considered to be leaks and will have to be blocked.

SOUND TRAVELLING THROUGH OBJECTS AND STRUCTURES

Sound waves can additionally be absorbed by, transferred to or reflected by solid materials and structures. Sound can be moved around a building from its original source by the vibration of floors, ceilings and walls. Even a solid concrete room, such as a basement, can generate a resonance path which transmits sound waves, and even amplify them, to other rooms in a structure.

How can we stop these sounds and vibrations affecting other folks? Soundproofing is the answer.

BASIC SOUNDPROOFING STEPS

If you've got bare floorboards or floors, consider laying a few rugs or cover with a carpet to help in reducing any vibrations and sound reflections. Such a simple solution can help to damp down any noise and spruce up the room at the same time. Hanging wall coverings and curtains can also avoid sound reflections and vibrations through windows and walls without the need for a team of professional soundproofing specialists.

Another inexpensive and do-it-yourself solution is to plug any gaps around doors, electrical sockets, light fittings and windows. There are special acoustic sealants available on the market which suppress the sound waves, and don't transfer them to the surrounding materials. Acoustic sealants are inclined to be a little more expensive than regular plaster or other sealant products, but their outstanding soundproofing qualities far outweigh the extra cost.

If you're luckily enough to be renovating or redecorating while dealing with your soundproofing requirements, then look at the possibility of putting up an additional layer of plasterboard (also called sheet rock, gypsum board or drywall). Plasterboard is a fairly dense material that's both economical and efficient for soundproofing a room. It is effective for spaces like movie rooms, music studios or home offices which are being built within a property. If you aren't familiar with putting up plasterboard and studding, it is best to hire a specialist Radstock contractor to guarantee the optimal soundproofing benefits from its installation.

One final easy soundproofing solution is to check the materials from which your doors are made. Even though hollow doors are lightweight and comparatively cheap, their soundproofing capabilities are not that brilliant. Solid core doors, whilst a little bit more pricey, can do wonders for soundproofing a room.

Be ready to answer the following four questions during a review of your specific soundproofing needs:

  1. How large is the space you need to be soundproofed?
  2. What are the specific sounds that you need to be soundproofed? i.e. Is it sounds from within your home such as a music studio or family room, or outside noises such as next door neighbours, traffic noise, aircraft, etc.
  3. What is the main area where the noise creates the biggest issues? i.e. Is it coming down from above, through windows/doors, up through the flooring or from the walls, or is it a mix of all these things.
  4. What is the area you want to soundproof made from? (i.e. a plasterboarded partition wall, a brick wall or a fully lined concrete wall).

With answers to these queries a trustworthy soundproofing company in Radstock will provide you with solutions for your situation, and just as importantly, your spending budget. Remedies will vary in accordance with the different materials needed for each of the main trouble spots within your property.

PROFESSIONAL SOUNDPROOFING OF WALLS, CEILINGS and FLOORS

There are two key areas that need to be dealt with to successfully soundproof any space or room:

  1. The absorption of sound will need to be enhanced.
  2. Reduce sound amplifying and reverberation.

An on-site survey is going to be needed to assess the aspects that need to be improved.

Solutions identified by the survey will include the addition of materials with different densities and masses to help maximise the soundproofing characteristics of the area. The use of acoustic rubbers and foams of varying density and mass will help to absorb noises and reduce transmission and reflection sources.

The insulation between any existing voids will be upgraded to lessen the sound resonation and amplification of these sound boxes. If you visualise these spaces like a drum or wooden cajon then you will see that by leaving floor or ceiling joist spaces and wall cavities empty, you are creating a sound amplification area.

Soundproofing is enhanced if different densities and materials are used, as opposed to installing only one sort of material. The different materials will eliminate different noise frequencies and deliver a more sympathetic feeling and auditory experience to a room.

Part E of the Building Regulations focus on the soundproofing of residential properties, and must be observed by any installation company in Radstock. These regulations have the purpose of protecting neighbours and other residents in the immediate area from the effects of sound pollution.

Acoustic or Soundproofing Underlay Radstock

If you're experiencing a lot of noise in your Radstock home, an effective way to lessen this without excessive disturbance is by installing some soundproofing underlay on your floors. These are okay for use under vinyl planks, carpet, laminate or engineered wood floor coverings, and are ideal for both concrete and timber floors.

Where there are problems with impact noise rather than airborne noise, soundproofing underlay is especially effective. A lot of properties in Radstock tend to have a major problem with impact noise, and this is mostly owing to the popularity of hard floor finishes, which are more commonplace these days. Things such as general footfall, kids stomping around and shifting furniture, are the sort of noise we're talking about here.

Although some carpet companies may attempt to palm you off with standard carpet underlay with claims that it has good acoustic qualities, this should not be mistaken for genuine acoustic underlay. If you've got serious issues with noise be sure to buy a decent acoustic underlay.

While it's an effective product with regard to impact noise, soundproofing underlay has differing degrees of success when it comes to reducing airborne noises like incessant talking, deafening music and booming televisions, and some products are certainly much better than others. Discussing the specific sorts of noise you are aiming to lower with the soundproofing expert or supplier is vital, and this will enable you to choose the best underlay for your needs.
