Soundproofer Redhill Surrey (RH1): If you are anxious about the amount of noise in your Redhill property, be it in a home office, bedroom, studio or lounge, you might want to consider putting in some soundproofing. You might also be concerned about noise from a home cinema or family room escaping and disturbing others in the house. Either way, soundproofing is vital for your peace of mind and sanity.
It is crucial for us to understand how sound travels and is transmitted around an area before it's possible to find techniques to stop it from occurring.
Sound is able to move in two different ways:
1. In open spaces by movement of air.
2. Around and within a solid object by reflection and vibration.
Although sound can also travel through water, unless you're wanting to isolate noise from an aquarium or pool, we'll just be concerned at how to reduce sound transmission in the rooms of a property.
SOUND TRAVEL THROUGH THE AIR
Sound can be transferred into and out of a room through gaps around doors, single glazed windows, open air-ducting and even electrical sockets and switches. Any noise vibrates the air molecules and these vibrations are what we hear and identify as sound. It matters not whether it's heavy machinery, music playing, busy traffic, aircraft or children playing, they all generate and transmit sound in the same way.
If you can visualise your room as a bucket, and you're trying to find any leaks to seal before you fill it up with liquid.
SOUND TRAVELLING THROUGH OBJECTS AND STRUCTURES
Sound waves can also be transferred to, absorbed by or reflected by solid objects and structures. Sound will vibrate the walls, ceilings and floors of your rooms, and may cause a resonating effect that's transmitted outside of the room itself. Even in a room that's encased in a dense material that's proofed against sound vibrations, such as a concrete basement, the sound can sometimes be transmitted and even amplified to other areas of the building.
How should we stop these vibrations and sounds affecting other people? Soundproofing is the solution.
BASIC STEPS IN SOUNDPROOFING
A bare floor surface resonates more than one covered by a carpet or rug. These soft coverings and rugs will help soak up sounds and can also add a touch of style to a previously bare room. Wall coverings or window drapes can also be used to boost soundproofing and are simple to install and maintain.
Another cost-effective and DIY solution is to plug any holes around light fittings, windows, door frames and sockets. It is possible to buy professional acoustic sealants in many DIY merchants which moderate the transmission of sound by absorbing it. They may be a tad more pricey than standard sealants or plaster, but they're worth the cost for their soundproofing efficiency.
For anybody redecorating a room or renovating a property, consider the soundproofing gains of adding a supplementary layer of plasterboard or soundboard, (also called sheet rock, gyproc or drywall), while you are undertaking this project. Plasterboard is a fairly dense material which is both economical and efficient for soundproofing purposes. It's great if you are installing a home cinema, music studio or study in your home in Redhill. If you're not familiar with fitting plasterboard and studding, it is wise to employ a specialist Redhill contractor to guarantee the optimal soundproofing results from its use.
One final simple soundproofing option is to look at the materials from which your doors are made. Even though hollow doors are light and fairly cheap, their soundproofing attributes aren't anything to write home about. Solid core doors, while a little more expensive, can do wonders for sound isolation in a room.
PROFESSIONAL SOUNDPROOFING SOLUTIONS REDHILL
If the sound levels are high in your location, because of aircraft flying over, or heavy traffic on a nearby road for instance, then more substantial methods to combat the excess noise will need to be explored. This is when the services of an established soundproofing company will bring the greatest results.
The first questions you can expect to be asked are:
- Is it internal sounds or external noise that you wish to target? i.e. To stop street noise, overflying aircraft or noisy neighbours, or is it from internally produced sounds from a music room or family room for instance.
- Where is most of the sound coming from? The doors, flooring, windows, ceiling or walls.
- What room needs to be soundproofed? i.e. Is it a loft conversion, a concrete lined cellar, a plasterboard partition room or a brick walled room.
- What's the size of the area or room that must be soundproofed?
Your answers to such questions will enable you to get quotes for the different solutions available that match your needs. There will be distinct remedies for each of the key areas the room you want to soundproof.
PROFESSIONAL SOUNDPROOFING OF FLOORS, WALLS and CEILINGS
There are 2 areas that need to be dealt with to soundproof any space or room:
- Cut down on the ways that sound is transmitted through and reflected by hard surfaces.
- Improve and maximise the amount of sound absorption.
To accurately assess the elements that require improvement, a site survey should be performed by a soundproofing expert.
A professional soundproofer will investigate the different ways to add density and mass to the trouble spots. Soundproofing will be enhanced by the application of acoustic rubber and foam which will absorb sound waves and improve and the sound quality of a space.
Voids between joists might require insulating to remove resonation gaps between them. If you picture these spaces as similar to a drum then you'll understand that by leaving floor or ceiling joist spaces and wall cavities empty, you are creating a noise amplifying area.
It's better to use mixed layers of different densities to deaden undesired sounds than a solitary layer fabricated from one soundproofing material. This is because the different material densities react in different ways with different frequencies and will deliver a better solution to your soundproofing.
All soundproofing providers in Redhill need to follow the legislation for residential buildings as specified by the Building Regulations (Part E). This regulation has the purpose of protecting neighbours in the area from the impact of noise pollution.
Trade associations in the soundproofing industry who provide guidance, qualifications and training are the Association of Noise Consultants (ANC) and the Institute of Acoustics (IOA). Only those Redhill businesses that have been vetted and accredited by these trade bodies for reliability, quality and professionalism are allowed to bear the logo.

Government Grants for Soundproofing
Government grants have been made available for the purpose of combating environmental noise over the last few years. If your house is in close proximity to a busy motorway or road you should contact the Highways Agency who have previously offered grants for soundproofing residential properties in particular areas. I suggest you check out the Government portal for current compensation schemes and grants to find out if you're eligible for any help with your soundproofing costs in Redhill.
