Initially we should understand how sound travels before we can find ways to eliminate any sound intrusion or escape from your home.

Soundproofing Sawston Cambridgeshire (CB22)

Sound is able to move in a couple of ways:

1. In open spaces by movement of air.

2. By vibration of solid materials and structures.

Sound is also transmitted through water, but unless you're thinking about soundproofing an aquarium or pool we will just focus on its isolation via air and materials.


Any gaps around doors, ill fitting windows, heating ducts and even light fittings and electrical sockets can all affect the transmission of sound outside or into a room. What we hear and identify as sound is basically air molucules being vibrated and reaching our ear drums. Regardless of the source of the noise; children playing, aircraft, heavy machinery, music playing or traffic, all sounds are produced and transferred in precisely the same way.

You must therefore think of your room as a boat and inspect it carefully for leaks that require sealing.


Sound waves can additionally be reflected by, transferred to or absorbed by solid materials and structures. The ceilings, floors and walls will all have an effect on how sound travels around an area, and can even transfer that vibration to other rooms in a dwelling. Even a room made of solid concrete, such as a cellar, can create a resonance path which channels sound waves, and even amplify them, to other rooms in a dwelling.

So, how can we stop this resonation having a detrimental impact on others? Soundproofing of course.


Consider covering bare floors, which resonate and reflect sound, with a carpet or rug. Such a simple and straightforward solution can spruce up a room and help to dampen down any noise to boot. Hanging wall coverings and curtains can also dampen sound vibrations and reflections through walls and windows without the need to bring in a team of professional soundproofers.

Another cost-effective and do-it-yourself resolution is to plug any holes or gaps around sockets, door frames, windows and light fittings. There are special acoustic sealants available to buy that absorb the sound waves, and don't transmit them to the surrounding materials. There will be a little difference in price in comparison with a standard sealant, however the soundproofing abilities are a lot better and can make a big difference to a room's soundproofing.

For those of you who are redecorating a room or renovating a property, consider the soundproofing gains of adding an extra skin of soundboard or plasterboard, (also known as gypsum board, drywall or sheet rock), while you are undertaking this project. This is a dense type of boarding that is a perfect and economic soundproofing material. It is ideal for areas such as studios, studies or movie rooms being built within your home in Sawston. It's far better to hire a professional contractor near you to install plasterboard unless you've experience in its application.

Lastly you should check all doors in the room that you're soundproofing. Hollow doors are a relatively cheap option but their soundproofing capabilities are a far cry from the best.

If the level of sound is extreme in your area, on account of aircraft flying over, or heavy traffic on a busy road for example, then more severe methods to combat the excess noise will have to be explored. You will get the very best soundproofing outcome by employing the services of a certified soundproofing specialist.

  3. How large is the area you wish to have soundproofed?
  4. What are the particular noises that need to soundproofed? i.e. Is it sounds from within your home such as a music room or family room, or external noises such as traffic noise, next door neighbours, overflying aircraft, etc.

All soundproofing contractors in Sawston will be needing to follow the legislation for domestic properties specified by the Building Regulations (Part E). These regulations should be adopted in order to protect yourself and others from being negatively impacted by noise pollution.

Acoustic Mineral Wool (AMW)

One of the most useful products on the market for soundproofing homes in Sawston, acoustic mineral wool has various different applications for your noise reduction needs. When installed in the cavity spaces of walls, floors and ceilings, acoustic mineral wool is specifically designed to absorb airborne sound, enhance acoustic performance and dampen vibrations.

Acoustic Mineral Wool Sawston

Usually available in "slabs" of 600mm x 1200mm, AMW also comes in several thicknesses (25mm, 50mm, 75mm and 100mm). Non-flammable and chemically inert, AMW is frequently made with recycled raw materials (about 20%). It doesn't react with plastics, masonry, metal wall ties, brickwork, or other materials or substances that it comes into contact with, nor does it encourage the development of bacteria, fungi or mould.

Particularly effective as a sound absorption filler when installed in the gaps between stud partitions, suspended ceilings and floor joists, acoustic mineral wool is widely used in the construction sector for fire, thermal and acoustic insulation. In relation to separating walls and floors, and when used in conjunction with other soundproofing materials, acoustic mineral wool can help in compliance with The Building Regulations (Part E).

Acoustic or Soundproofing Underlay Sawston

If you are experiencing lots of noise in your Sawston property, an easy way to lessen this without excessive disturbance is by installing some acoustic or soundproofing underlay on your floors. Both concrete and wooden floors are suitable surfaces for these soundproofing underlays, and they can be installed under laminate, vinyl planks, engineered wood and carpet.

When your problem is not so much airborne noise but mostly impact noise, acoustic underlay is an especially effective remedy. Nowadays, the increased popularity of "harder" floor finishes has caused more issues with impact noise in lots of Sawston homes. Such things as moving furniture, general footfall and kids running around, are the form of noise that we're referring to here.

Do not confuse ordinary carpet underlay with authentic soundproofing underlay, because some carpet stores may try to sell you such products, claiming that they are suitable. If you've got real issues with noise be sure to purchase a decent soundproofing underlay.

Although impact noise can be significantly reduced with acoustic underlays, they have varying degrees of success with regards to deafening music, incessant talking and booming televisions, and other airborne noise. Before picking an underlay product you should speak to the supplier or soundproofing expert about your particular situation, and discuss the specific kinds of noise you're striving to reduce.

Soundproofing Foam Sawston

I was fascinated to discover quite recently that one of the most popular soundproofing search phrases typed into Google and other search engines was "soundproofing foam", and for local searches "soundproofing foam Sawston" and "acoustical foam Sawston". That is really quite worrying, because it indicates that Sawston home and business owners are under the impression that acoustic foam is a suitable product for solving their noise pollution problems.

It is not my intention to spoil your day, but most soundproofing issues can't be helped by acoustic foam, and if you are aiming to block out the racket caused by noisy neighbours in Sawston, you'll need to look someplace else.

Blocking out noise isn't actually the function of this familiar "egg box" shaped foam, which was actually created for use in music studios and comparable environments, where it can enhance the sound clarity in a room, and reduce reverberation, amplifying and echoing. This type of product is not effective in stopping noise from penetrating a wall from a neighbouring property, or even to stop sound from travelling around your home and being a nuisance. Because it is porous, acoustic foam actually absorbs sound and lets sound pass through it, as opposed to blocking it.

It may be that you actually have a music studio in your property in Sawston, in which case this foam may be extremely useful for you.
