It is crucial for us to understand how sound travels and is transmitted around an area before it is possible to discover solutions to prevent it from occurring.

Soundproofing Renfrew Scotland (PA4)

Sound basically moves in two ways throughout your home:

1. In open spaces by movement of air.

2. Around and within a solid object by reflection and vibration.

As whale and dolphin song shows, sound also travels through water, but unless your aim is to soundproof an aquarium or swimming pool we'll look only at the strategies for soundproofing rooms and structures.


If you glance around the room to be soundproofed and detect ill fitting windows, gaps around doors, open air-ducting and even electrical sockets and switches, these are all aspects that can cause the transmission of sound. All sounds and noise will create movement and vibration of the air molecules, and this is what we hear and identify. It does not matter whether it's heavy machinery, music, kids playing, aircraft or road traffic, they all create and transfer sound in the same way.

If you can think of your room as if it were a bucket, and you are attempting to identify any leaks to seal before you fill it up with water.


We all know that sound is just the vibrations of air being picked up by the ear, but those vibrations are also transferred to solid objects. Sound can be transported around a dwelling from its original source via the vibration of ceilings, floors and walls. Even in a room that's built from a solid material that is proofed against sound, such as a concrete lined cellar, the sound can be reflected and perhaps even amplified to other areas of the dwelling.

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


If you've got bare floor surfaces or floorboards, consider putting down a few rugs or cover with a carpet to help in reducing any sound reflections and vibrations. Such a straightforward solution can spruce up a room and help to dampen down any noises to boot. Window drapes and wall coverings can also be used to enhance soundproofing and are easy to fit and maintain.

Search for areas around the rooms where sound can escape or come in; light fittings, electrical sockets, doors and windows, and stop up the gaps. You can find specialist acoustic sealants in many building supply stores that repress the transmission of sound by absorbing the sound waves. They might be somewhat more expensive than normal sealants or plaster, but they are worth it for their soundproofing efficiency.

For anyone redecorating a room or renovating a property, evaluate the soundproofing benefits of adding an extra skin of plasterboard or soundboard, (also known as drywall, sheet rock or gyproc), whilst you're carrying out this project. Plasterboard is a dense material that is both effective and economical for soundproofing purposes. It's perfect for areas like home cinemas, home offices or studios that are being built within the home. It is best to hire a professional Renfrew tradesman to fit the plasterboard unless you're experienced in this task.

The last DIY solution is to consider the doors in your home in Renfrew. Although hollow doors are light and relatively inexpensive, their soundproofing characteristics aren't the best. Solid wood doors, while a little bit more expensive, can do wonders for improving the soundproofing qualities of a room.


Some areas, for instance those on aircraft flight-paths or next to busy routes, naturally have more sound problems and will need other ways to address the dilemma. This is an instance when appointing the services of a specialist soundproofing company will deliver the best results.

Voids between joists might need insulation to eliminate resonation spaces between them. If you think about a drum for instance, you're looking at a sound increasing void surrounded by a resonating material; fundamentally what you might find within floor and ceiling joists, or cavities in walls.

Mixed layers of differing density and mass materials work better at absorbing noise than a single soundproofing material layer of one type. The diverse materials will reduce different noise frequencies and offer a more sympathetic feeling and auditory experience to a room.

All soundproofing firms in Renfrew must follow the legislation for domestic properties as set down in Part E of the Building Regulations. These requirements have to be observed so as to protect yourself and others from the harmful effects of sound pollution.

Soundproofing or Acoustic Underlay Renfrew

Installing a soundproofing or acoustic underlay is an excellent way of adding a degree of soundproofing to your house in Renfrew without causing any major disturbance. This is designed for use on wood or concrete floors and can be installed under engineered wood, laminate, vinyl planks, carpet, and other flooring types.

Soundproofing underlay is particularly effective where there is a lot of impact noise rather than airborne noise. The increased popularity of hard floor finishes in Renfrew, means that there are a growing number of problems with impact noise. This is particularly problematic in rooms upstairs, and the form of noise we are referring to here is general footfall, kids running around and shifting furniture.

Do not be drawn in by unprincipled carpet merchants, who might attempt to sell you regular carpet underlay as a cure for your noise problems - this kind of product shouldn't be confused with genuine soundproofing underlay, which is what you really need. Be sure to buy a quality acoustic underlay, if you've got significant problems with noise.

Even though impact noise can be substantially lowered with soundproofing underlays, they have varying degrees of success with regards to shouting, loud music and blaring TV's, and other airborne noise. Consequently, it's important to pinpoint the specific sorts of noise you are seeking to reduce before deciding on an underlay, and talk to your supplier or soundproofing specialist about your particular situation.
