Soundproofer Rustington West Sussex (BN16): If your Rustington property is being adversely affected by noise, perhaps you should look into putting in some soundproofing to bring tranquillity to your home office, living room, bedroom or studio. You may also be aware of noise from a family room or home cinema room escaping and disturbing other inhabitants. In any event, soundproofing is important for your peace of mind and sanity.
It's crucial for us to understand how sound travels around a building before it's possible to find methods to prevent it from happening.
Sound can move in two different ways:
1. Through the vibration of objects or materials.
2. The vibration or air molecules through the air.
Despite the fact that sound also travels through water, unless you are eager to isolate sounds from a pool or aquarium, we'll only be interested in how to soundproof rooms within a building.
SOUND TRAVELLING THROUGH THE AIR
Any single glazed windows, open air-ducting, gaps around doors and even electrical sockets and light fittings can all affect the transmission of sound into or outside a room. What we hear and identify as sound is basically the vibration of air molecules reaching our ear drums. All sounds travel through the air in this same manner; it doesn't matter if it's passing aircraft, music playing, children playing, heavy machinery or traffic that generates the sound.
Any holes in the room can be regarded as a leak and will need to be plugged.
SOUND THROUGH STRUCTURES AND OBJECTS
Sound waves can also be transferred to, reflected by or absorbed by solid objects and structures. The ceilings, floors and walls will all have an effect on how sound moves around an area, and can even transmit that vibration to other parts of a property. Even in a room that is encased in a solid material that's somewhat resistant to sound, such as a concrete lined cellar, the sound can sometimes be transmitted and perhaps even amplified to other parts of the building.
But, how can these effects be prevented from creating an issue? The solution is naturally, soundproofing!
BASIC SOUNDPROOFING STEPS
A bare floor surface resonates more than one covered by a carpet or rug. Such a straightforward solution can help to damp down any noise and enhance the room to boot. Wall coverings or window drapes can also be employed to enhance soundproofing and are easy to install.
Look for areas in the room where sound can come in or escape from; doors, windows, sockets and light fittings, and seal the gaps. Plugging the gaps and holes with a professional acoustic sealant that can be purchased in some DIY centres and builders merchants, will make a big difference to how your room sounds. There will be a little difference in the price when compared with a standard sealant, but the soundproofing abilities are significantly better and will make a big difference to a room's soundproofing.
For those of you who are redecorating a room or renovating a property, evaluate the soundproofing benefits of adding a supplementary layer of soundboard or plasterboard, (also known as gypsum board, sheet rock or drywall), whilst you're tackling the work. This is an efficient and economical soundproofing material owing to its dense nature. It is ideal if you are putting in a movie room, games room or home office in your house in Rustington. If you do decide on plasterboard to help with your soundproofing it is better to bring in a professional fitter in Rustington, to gain the maximum possible benefit from its installment.
One final easy soundproofing treatment is to examine the materials from which your doors are made. Hollow doors are a fairly cheap option but their soundproofing qualities are a far cry from ideal. If you're able to change to solid doors you'll find it boosts your soundproofing at very little extra cost.
PROFESSIONAL SOUNDPROOFING SOLUTIONS RUSTINGTON
If the sound levels are excessive in your area, due to aircraft flying over, or heavy traffic on a nearby road for example, then more serious ways to combat the excess noise will have to be investigated. This is where the services of a professional soundproofing company will bring the greatest results.
The initial questions you can expect to be asked are:
- What are the specific sounds that need to soundproofed? i.e. Is it sounds from inside your property such as a music studio or family room, or outside noises such as road noise, aircraft, noisy neighbours, etc.
- Precisely where is the major source of the sound coming from? i.e. Above, through the walls, floor, windows, doors or ceiling, or a combination of all sorts of things.
- What are the dimensions of the area or room that has to be soundproofed?
- What area needs to be soundproofed? i.e. Is it a plasterboard partition room, a brick walled room, a concrete lined cellar or a loft conversion.
Your answers to such queries will allow you to get price quotes for the different solutions available to suit your situation. They will provide different strategies for soundproofing each of the troublesome areas within your home.
PROFESSIONAL SOUNDPROOFING OF CEILINGS, FLOORS and WALLS
Two key strategies are required to soundproof any kind of space:
- Increase sound absorption.
- Reduce the ways that sound is transmitted through and reflected by solid surfaces.
To precisely analyse the soundproofing areas that need to be improved, a site survey should be conducted by a local soundproofing company.
A professional soundproofer will look at the different ways to add mass and density to the troublesome areas. Soundproofing can be improved by the application of acoustic rubber, foam and other materials which will absorb sound waves and improve and the sound quality of an area.
Voids between floor joists might need insulating to remove resonation spaces between them. If you picture such spaces as similar to a drum then you will see that by leaving floor or ceiling joist spaces and wall cavities empty, you're effectively creating a sound amplification area.
It's better to use combined layers of different density materials to deaden unwanted sounds than a solitary layer made from one kind of soundproofing material. This is because the various frequencies are absorbed differently by different types of materials, therefore a range of layers, densities and shapes within your soundproofing panels are needed.
