It's important for us to understand how sound travels around a structure before it's possible to identify techniques to stop it from happening.

Soundproofing Ruddington Nottinghamshire (NG11)

There basically two ways in which sound can travel around a room:

1. Through the air by vibration of air molecules.

2. Through the vibration of objects or materials.

Despite the fact that sound also travels through water, unless you are looking to isolate noise from a swimming pool or aquarium, we'll just be interested in how to reduce sound transmission in rooms within a building.

SOUND TRAVELLING THROUGH THE AIR

Any single glazed windows, gaps around doors, heating ducts and even electrical switches and sockets can all be responsible for the transmission of sound into or outside a room. All sound vibrates the air molecules and this vibration is what we hear and identify as sound. All sounds are transferred through the air in this same way; it matters not if it's road traffic, passing aircraft, heavy machinery, music playing or kids playing that produces the sound.

If you try and imagine your room as if it were a bucket, and you are attempting to find any leaks which need sealing before you fill it up with liquid.

SOUND THROUGH STRUCTURES AND OBJECTS

As sound travels through the air by vibrations, then it stands to reason that such vibrations can be transferred to, absorbed by or reflected by various materials. Sound will vibrate the walls, ceilings and floors of your rooms, and can cause a resonation effect that is transferred beyond the room itself. Even a solid concrete room, such as a basement, can generate a path of resonance which transports any sound waves, and even amplify them, to other parts of a property.

But, how can these sound generating effects be prevented from creating an issue? The solution is obviously, soundproofing!

SIMPLE SOUNDPROOFING STEPS

Consider covering a bare floor, which resonates and reflects sound, with a rug or carpet. Such a simple solution can spruce up a room and help to dampen down any noises to boot. Curtains, in particular substantial blackout styles, will also suppress any sounds from invading or escaping a room, cost-effectively and without the need for professional soundproofing.

Locating and stopping up any gaps or holes around the rooms, think doors, light fittings, windows and electrical sockets, is also a simple job for a capable DIY'er. There are unique acoustic sealants available on the market that suppress the sound waves, and don't transfer them to the surrounding materials. There could be a considerable difference in the price when compared to a normal sealant, but the soundproofing abilities are a lot better and can make an enormous difference to a room's level of soundproofing.

If you're going to be renovating or redecorating while considering your soundproofing, then look at the possibility of installing an extra layer of plasterboard (also referred to as gypsum board, sheet rock or drywall). Plasterboard is a fairly dense material that is both effective and economical for soundproofing an area. It is perfect for areas such as home offices, studios or movie rooms that are being built within the home. If you do decide to use plasterboard to help with your soundproofing exploits it is a good idea to bring in a specialist fitter in Ruddington, to gain the maximum possible effect from its installation.

Soundproofer Quotes in Ruddington Nottinghamshire

One final easy soundproofing treatment is to look at the materials your doors are made of. Hollow doors are a comparatively cheap option but their soundproofing qualities are far from ideal. Solid core doors, whilst a little bit more expensive, can do wonders for improving the soundproofing in a room.

PROFESSIONAL SOUNDPROOFING SOLUTIONS RUDDINGTON

If your home is in a high sound pollution location, such as next to a busy road or near an airport, you'll have to be more aggressive in how to increase the soundproofing qualities of your house. You will receive the most effective soundproofing results by hiring the expertise of a professional soundproofing company.

Soundproofer Near Ruddington Nottinghamshire

Expect to answer the four following questions during a review of your soundproofing requirements:

  1. What are the dimensions of the area or room that has to be soundproofed?
  2. What is the area you wish to soundproof made from? (i.e. a brick wall, a lined concrete wall or a stud partition wall).
  3. From which direction do the sounds seem to be coming? i.e. Through the windows, walls, floors, ceiling or doors or a mix of all.
  4. What sounds or noise are you attempting to eliminate? i.e. External factors like traffic noise, next door neighbours, overflying aircraft etc, or internal sounds from a family room or music studio.

With answers to these questions a genuine soundproofing installer in Ruddington will offer you solutions for your situation, and just as important, your allotted budget. Solutions might vary in accordance with the different materials needed for each of the main trouble spots within your property.

PROFESSIONAL SOUNDPROOFING OF FLOORS, CEILINGS and WALLS

To soundproof any kind of room requires two key approaches:

  1. Cut down on the effects on the way sound is reflected off and transmitted through solid surfaces.
  2. Update and enhance the amount of sound absorption.

To precisely determine the aspects that need to be improved, a site survey needs to be completed by a soundproofing company in Ruddington.

Solutions identified by the survey will include adding some materials with different densities and masses to help maximise the soundproofing attributes of the room. The use of acoustic rubbers and foams of varying mass and density will help to absorb noise and reduce reflections and transmission sources.

Insulation between any voids will be improved to lower the sound amplification and resonation of these sound boxes. Floor and ceiling voids and cavities in walls can all be assimilated with a drum, where the space inside acts like an amplification source for undesired noise.

Soundproofing is enhanced if multiple layers of varying density materials are employed, rather than installing only one form of material. This is due to the fact that the various frequencies are absorbed differently by different materials, therefore a range of layers, densities and shapes within your soundproofing panels are required.

Any soundproofing specialist in Ruddington will have to abide by the Part E of the Building Regulations, if dealing with a domestic property. This regulation has the purpose of protecting neighbours and other residents in the area from the impact and effect of noise pollution.

Trade bodies in the soundproofing industry that offer advice, training and qualifications are the Institute of Acoustics (IOA) and the Association of Noise Consultants (ANC). Any Ruddington firm showing IOA or ANC accreditation will have been vetted to make certain they provide the highest standards, quality and reliability of workmanship within the soundproofing industry.

Soundproofing Underlay Ruddington

A very good way of adding some extra soundproofing to your Ruddington home, without any unwelcome disruption, is to install acoustic underlay. This can be used on timber or concrete floors and can be installed underneath carpet, laminate, engineered wood, vinyl planks, and various other flooring types.

Where there is a lot of impact noise rather than airborne noise, soundproofing underlay is especially beneficial. Impact noise tends to be a significant problem in Ruddington properties nowadays, with an increase in the popularity of "hard" floor finishes. Rooms upstairs are the main source of such problems, with general footfall, shifting furniture and children running around being frequent sorts of irritating noise.

Although some unprincipled carpet retailers may try to sell you regular carpet underlay, claiming that it has acoustic benefits, this shouldn't be confused with authentic soundproofing or acoustic underlay. If you have real noise concerns ensure that you purchase a good quality acoustic underlay.

Even though impact noise can be substantially lowered with the help of acoustic underlays, they have varying degrees of success when it comes to shouting, loud music and blaring TV's, and other airborne noise problems. Hence, when buying a particular underlay it is important to understand the exact sorts of noise you're aiming to minimise, and chat about this with the soundproofing specialist or supplier in advance.

Acoustic Mineral Wool

For you noise reduction needs in Ruddington, AMW (or acoustic mineral wool) is one of the most versatile products for soundproofing houses or other buildings, and has a range of applications. Specifically designed to be installed in the cavity spaces of floors, ceilings and walls, acoustic mineral wool is effective in absorbing sound waves, reducing reverberation and enhancing acoustic performance.

Acoustic Mineral Wool Ruddington

AMW normally comes in 1200mm x 600mm "slabs" and is available in 25mm, 50mm, 75mm and 100mm thicknesses. Non-combustible and chemically inert, acoustic mineral wool is often made with recycled raw materials. It will not react with brickwork, masonry, metal wall ties, plastics, or other materials that it comes into contact with, nor does it encourage the growth of fungi, mould or bacteria.

Notably effective as a sound absorbing infill when installed between suspended ceilings, stud partitioning and flooring joists, acoustic mineral wool is widely used in the construction industry for fire, thermal and acoustic insulation. With regards to separating walls and floors, and in order to abide by The Building Regulations (Part E), acoustic mineral wool can be used in conjunction with other soundproofing products.

Soundproofing Foam Ruddington

After doing some fundamental keyphrase research, it looks like one of the most commonly searched for terms on Google and Yahoo is for "soundproofing foam" and for people in Ruddington, perhaps "soundproofing foam Ruddington". This is rather puzzling, because it would suggest a lack of understanding by local householders who seem to be under the impression that their noise problems can be resolved through the use of soundproofing foam.

The last thing I am looking to do is spoil anyone's day, but if you are convinced that the din from your noisy next door neighbours in Ruddington can be blocked out with soundproofing foam, then you are wide of the target.

Blocking out noise isn't the function of this familiar "egg box" shaped foam, which was in fact created for use in music studios and comparable situations, where it can improve the acoustic performance of a room, and reduce echoing, resonation and amplification. This product isn't effective for preventing noise from travelling through a neighbours wall, or even moving freely around your property and causing a nuisance. Rather than blocking it, soundproofing foam actually allows sound to pass through it, because it is in fact porous.

If however, you happen to have a music room, this may be a valuable product for you to use, and can be found in different thicknesses (usually 25 millimetre and 50 millimetre), and in various tile and sheet sizes.
