Firstly it would be advantageous to learn precisely how sound travels and is transmitted before we are able to identify ways to combat any sound intrusion or escape from your home.

Soundproofing Sandridge Hertfordshire (AL4)

Sound basically moves in two ways around a home:

1. Through the air by vibration of air molecules.

2. Through objects by the vibration of the material.

Sound can also travel through water, however unless you're thinking about soundproofing an aquarium or swimming pool we will only concern ourselves with the isolation through air and materials.

SOUND TRAVELLING THROUGH THE AIR

Any ill fitted windows, gaps around doors, open ducting and even electrical switches and sockets can all be methods of transmission of sound outside or into a room. What we hear as sound is in fact air molucules being vibrated and being picked up by our ear drums. Irrespective of the source of the sound; aeroplanes, kids playing, music playing, heavy machinery or busy traffic, all sound is created and transferred in precisely the same way.

It is helpful to think of a room as a boat and inspect it carefully for leaks that require sealing.

SOUND TRAVELLING THROUGH STRUCTURES AND OBJECTS

We know that sound is merely the vibration of air being picked up by the ear, but that vibration is also transferred to solid objects. The ceilings, walls and floors will all have an impact on how sound moves around a room, and may even transport those vibrations to other rooms in a property. Even a solid concrete room, such as a cellar, can generate a resonance path which transports any sound waves, and even amplify them, to other areas of a structure.

How should we stop these vibrations and sounds from having an adverse effect on other folks? Soundproofing is the answer.

BASIC SOUNDPROOFING STEPS

If you have bare floorboards or floor surfaces, consider covering them with carpet or putting down a few rugs to help in reducing any vibrations and sound reflections. Not only will such a simple and straightforward solution help to reduce your noise problem, but it can also spruce up the room. Wall coverings or window drapes can also be used to improve soundproofing and are simple to fit and maintain.

Another inexpensive and DIY resolution is to plug any holes or gaps around door frames, windows, light fittings and electrical sockets. It is possible to purchase specialist acoustic sealants in some DIY shops that suppress the transmission of sound by suppressing the sound waves. Acoustic sealants are inclined to be a little more pricey than standard plaster or other sealant products, however the special design has far greater soundproofing performance and is worth the small extra cost.

If you are luckily enough to be renovating or redecorating while dealing with your soundproofing requirements, then look at putting up an extra skin of plasterboard (also referred to as sheet rock, gyproc or drywall). Plasterboard is a very dense material that is both effective and economical in soundproofing a room. It is excellent for areas such as home cinemas, music studios or home offices being built within your house in Sandridge. If you do decide on plasterboard to help with your soundproofing it is advisable to hire a specialist fitter in Sandridge, to gain the maximum possible effect from its installation.

The first questions you should be asked are:

  1. What are the specific noises that need to soundproofed? i.e. Is it outside noises such as street noise, neighbours playing loud music, trains etc, or is it from within your home such as a home cinema or music room.
  2. Which is the main place where the sound creates the most problems? i.e. Is it coming from the walls, down from overhead, up through the floors or through windows/doors, or is it a combination of all these things.
  3. How big is the area that you need to have soundproofed?
  4. What type of room or property do you want to soundproof? Does it have a brick wall, a lined concrete wall or a plasterboarded partition wall etc.

An experienced soundproofing firm in Sandridge will look at all these factors to offer solutions to your noise issues over a range of budgets. There will be distinct remedies for each of the main key areas of the space you want to soundproof.

PROFESSIONAL SOUNDPROOFING OF WALLS, CEILINGS and FLOORS

To soundproof any type of room requires 2 key approaches:

  1. Minimise sound the reverberation and amplification of sound.
  2. Sound absorption will have to be enhanced.

A site survey is going to be necessary to examine the elements that need improving.

Solutions from the survey will probably include adding some materials of different densities to help maximise the soundproofing qualities of the space. The use of acoustic foams and rubbers of varying density and mass will help to absorb noise and reduce reflections and transmission sources.

Any voids in the room might require some sort of deadening material to be installed between them to lower noise resonation. If you picture such spaces as similar to a drum then you'll see that by leaving floor or ceiling joist spaces and wall cavities open, you are creating a sound amplifying area.

Soundproofing abilities are maximised if different densities and materials are utilised, rather than installing a single sort of material. The diverse materials will eliminate different sound frequencies and provide a more harmonious feeling and auditory experience to a room.

Any soundproofing company in Sandridge must conform to the Part E of the Building Regulations, if your property is residential in nature. This regulation has the purpose of protecting neighbours in the immediate area from the impact of noise pollution.

Look out for companies displaying the logos of the Institute of Acoustics (IOA) or the Association of Noise Consultants (ANC) to guarantee that you are dealing with a business that's knowledgable and fully qualified in the soundproofing sector. Any Sandridge contractor bearing IOA or ANC accreditation will have been appraised to make sure they offer the highest quality, reliability and standards of work within the industry.

Acoustic Mineral Wool

One of the most versatile products available for soundproofing properties in Sandridge, AMW (or acoustic mineral wool) has a number of different applications for your noise reduction needs. Absorbing airborne sound, dampening vibrations and improving acoustic performance, acoustic grade mineral wool is specifically designed to be installed in the cavity spaces of ceilings, floors and walls.

Acoustic Mineral Wool Sandridge

Widely available in thicknesses of 25mm, 50mm, 75mm and 100mm, acoustic mineral wool generally comes in 1200mm x 600mm slabs. Often partly made with recycled materials (approximately 20%), acoustic mineral wool is non-combustible and is chemically inert. It's rare for mould, bacteria or fungi to be found growing in AMW, and it will not have a reaction with brickwork, metal wall ties, plastics, masonry, or other materials that it comes into close contact with.

Acoustic mineral wool is especially effective as a sound absorption infill when installed between suspended ceilings, floor joists and stud partitions, and is widely recognised in the construction industry for acoustic, fire and thermal insulation. When applied side by side with other acoustic solutions, AMW can help in complying with The Building Regulations (Part E) when it comes to separating floors and walls.

Soundproofing Foam Sandridge

I recently thought I'd look at what home owners in Sandridge are searching online for in relation to soundproofing, and apparently when searching on Google and Bing one of the most commonly types in requests was for "soundproofing foam". And on a local basis queries include things like "soundproofing foam Sandridge". That is actually quite concerning, as it illustrates that Sandridge homeowners are assuming that soundproofing foam products are suitable for fixing their noise pollution issues.

I don't wish to ruin your day, but soundproofing foam is not really the answer to most noise pollution problems, and is definitely not effective if you're looking to filter out the racket from noisy neighbours in Sandridge.

The foam in the form of an "egg box" which you regularly see being sold in sheet or tile form is not actually intended for stopping the transmission of noise, but was really developed for use in music studios and comparable spaces, to reduce amplifying and echoing and enhance the sound clarity in a room. This kind of acoustic foam isn't efficient at preventing noise from penetrating a neighbouring wall, or stopping sound from travelling around the rooms of your home. Since soundproofing foam is spongy and porous, it actually permits sound to pass through it, and hasn't got the consistency to block it.

If however, you are creating a music room, this might be a handy product for you, and can be bought in different thicknesses (usually 25mm and 50mm), and in various sheet and tile sizes.

Soundproofing or Acoustic Underlay Sandridge

A great way of adding some extra soundproofing to your house in Sandridge, without any serious disruption, is to add acoustic underlay. These acoustic underlays can be used on both wood and concrete floors, and underneath vinyl planks, engineered wood, carpet and laminate floor coverings.

When there are problems with impact as opposed to airborne noise, acoustic underlay is particularly effective. Impact noise has become a big problem in Sandridge properties nowadays, with an increase in the popularity of "hard" floor finishes. Upstairs rooms are the main source of such problems, with children running around, moving furniture and general footfall being typical types of annoying noise.

Do not be deceived by unscrupulous carpet retailers, who might attempt to sell you ordinary carpet underlay as a cure for your noise problems - this kind of product should not be confused with genuine soundproofing underlay, which is what you really need. If you have serious issues with noise make sure you invest in a good quality acoustic underlay.

Whilst acoustic underlay is mostly effective for reducing impact noise, some are better than others with regards to airborne noise pollution such as blaring televisions, deafening music and incessant talking. You must discuss the precise sorts of noise you're attempting to minimise with your soundproofing expert or supplier, and this should help you establish the correct underlay for your soundproofing needs.
