Initially it would be advantageous to understand precisely how is transmitted and travels before we can identify ways to combat any excessive noise escaping from or intruding into your home.

Soundproofing Royston Hertfordshire (SG8)

Sound is able to travel in two different ways:

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

2. Through the air by vibration of air molecules.

Despite the fact that sound can also travel through liquids, unless you are wanting to isolate sounds from a pool or aquarium, we'll just be interested in how to reduce sound levels in rooms within a building.


Sound can be transferred into and out of a room through gaps around doors, open air-ducting, ill fitting windows and even electrical sockets and switches. All sounds and noise will create movement and vibration of the air molecules, and it is this that we hear. All sounds are transmitted through the air in the same fashion; it matters not if it's traffic, music, children playing, aeroplanes or heavy machinery that produces the sound.

If you can imagine your room as if it were a bucket, and you're trying to find any leaks that need sealing before you can fill it up with water.


If sound travels through the air by vibrations, then it makes sense that those vibrations can be reflected by, absorbed by or transferred to different solid materials. The floors, walls and ceilings will all have an impact on how sound travels around an area, and may even transmit those vibrations to other parts of a dwelling. Even a solid concrete room, such as a cellar, can produce a path of resonance which transmits sound waves, and even amplify them, to other rooms in a building.

How should we prevent these vibrations and sounds affecting other people? Soundproofing is the solution.


A bare floor surface resonates more than one covered by a carpet or rug. These soft coverings will help soak up sounds and can also add a bit of elegance to a previously bare room. Curtains, in particular heavy blackout types, can also subdue any sounds from escaping or invading the area, cost-effectively and without requiring specialist soundproofing.

Another inexpensive and DIY solution is to plug any gaps or holes around doors, electrical sockets, light fittings and windows. There are some special acoustic sealants available to buy that absorb the sound waves, and don't transfer them to surrounding materials. There may be a little difference in price when compared to a normal sealant, but the soundproofing abilities are much better and can make a huge difference to a room.

If the room you are working on is an empty canvas and you are doing the soundproofing while you renovate or decorate, look at putting up another skin of soundboard or plasterboard, (also called gypsum board, sheet rock or drywall). This is a dense type of board that is an economic and useful soundproofing material. It is superb if you are putting in a home cinema, home office or music studio in your house in Royston. It is best to hire a certified contractor near you to put up the plasterboard unless you've got some experience in this sort of work.

One final simple soundproofing solution is to check the materials from which your doors are made. Hollow doors are reasonably cheap although their soundproofing qualities are a far cry from perfect. Changing hollow doors for solid ones will considerably improve the soundproofing of a room with only a minimal extra cost.


If the sound levels are extreme in your area, on account of heavy traffic on a busy road nearby, or aircraft flying over for instance, then more serious methods to deal with the excess noise will need to be investigated. You will get the most effective soundproofing outcome by using the services of an experienced soundproofing company.

The initial questions you should be asked are:

  1. What exactly is the size of the room or space that must be soundproofed?
  2. Where is the main source of sound emanating from? i.e. Overhead, through the doors, windows, walls, floor or ceiling, or a combination of everything.
  3. What sort of room or area do you need to soundproof? Is it a lined concrete wall, a brick wall or a plasterboarded partition wall etc.
  4. What noise or sounds are you wanting to subdue? i.e. External factors like traffic noise, passing trains, noisy neighbours etc, or internal sounds from a teenagers bedroom or family room.

Your answers to such queries will enable you to get estimates for the different solutions available that match your needs. There will be distinct solutions for each of the key areas the room you want to soundproof.


To soundproof any sort of room requires 2 key approaches:

  1. Maximise the absorption of sound.
  2. Lower the effect of sound vibration, reflection and amplification by hard surfaces.

To effectively assess the aspects that require improvement, an on-site survey needs to be carried out by a soundproofing specialist.

The specialists will figure out ways to add materials that have different masses and densities to enhance the sound absorption of the area. This additional mass will help to enhance the absorption of noises by the use of acoustic foam or rubber to achieve the maximum sound reduction impacts.

Any noticeable voids in the room may need some type of muffling material to be inserted 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 as an amplifying area for any undesirable sounds.

Soundproofing abilities are improved if multiple layers of varying density materials are used, as opposed to installing a single form of material. This is due to the fact that the various different materials react better with varying frequencies and will deliver a better resolution to your soundproofing.
