First of all we need to understand exactly how sound travels and is transmitted before we are able to identify ways to reduce any excessive noise escaping from or intruding into your property.

Soundproofing Shaw Greater Manchester (OL2)

Basically, sound travels in two ways around a room:

1. Through objects by the vibration of the material.

2. The vibration or air molecules through the air.

As whale and dolphin song demonstrates, sound also penetrates long distance through water, however unless your intention is to soundproof a pool or aquarium we will just look at the strategies for soundproofing structures and rooms.


Any ill fitted windows, gaps around doors, heating ducts and even electrical sockets and light fittings can all affect the transmission of sound outside or into a room. All noise vibrates the air molecules and these vibrations are what we pick up and hear as sound. All sounds are transmitted through the air in the same manner; it does not matter if it's aircraft, music playing, children playing, heavy machinery or nearby traffic that creates the sound.

Any holes in the room can be regarded as a leak and will need to be blocked.


As sound travels through the air by vibrations, then it seems logical that such vibrations can be reflected by, transferred to or absorbed by different materials. The ceilings, floors and walls will all affect how sound moves around a room, and can even transmit that vibration to other areas of a property. Even in a room that's encased in a dense material that is proofed against sound vibrations, such as a concrete lined basement, the sound can sometimes be transmitted and possibly even amplified to other areas of the building.

So, what's the easiest way to stop these vibrations having an impact on other people? Soundproofing obviously.


A bare floor is more resonant than one covered by a carpet or rug. Not only can such a simple solution reduce your problem with noise, it can also perk up the room. Wall coverings or window drapes can also be employed to enhance soundproofing and are simple to fit and maintain.

Search for areas in your rooms where sound can come in or escape from; light fittings, sockets, door frames and windows, and close off any holes or gaps. You can find specialist acoustic sealants in many building supply stores that deaden the transmission of sound by absorbing the sound waves. They may be a bit more expensive than standard sealants or plaster, but they're more than worth it for their soundproofing qualities.

For anybody redecorating a room or renovating a property, consider the soundproofing benefits of adding a supplementary layer of soundboard or plasterboard, (also called gypsum board, sheet rock or drywall), while you are carrying out this project. Plasterboard is a very dense material that is both effective and economical for soundproofing purposes. It's excellent for spaces such as home cinemas, studios or studies that are being built within a property. If you aren't experienced in putting up plasterboard and studding, it is wise to employ a professional Shaw contractor to guarantee you the optimum soundproofing gains from its use.

One final easy soundproofing solution is to examine the materials from which your doors are made. If you have hollow doors in your rooms you will find that they can vibrate with any sound that hits them. Changing hollow doors for solid ones will improve the soundproofing of an area with only a small extra cost.


If the level of sound pollution is extreme in your area, on account of aircraft passing overhead, or traffic noise from a busy road for example, then more serious ways to deal with the excess noise will have to be investigated. This is when hiring the services of an experienced soundproofing service will bring the best results.

The initial questions you should be asked are:

  1. Where is the majority of the noise emanating from? The floors, windows, walls, ceiling or doors.
  2. How large is the space that needs soundproofing?
  3. What are the particular sounds that you need to be soundproofed? i.e. Is it outside noises such as traffic noise, passing trains, neighbours etc, or is it from inside your property such as a family room or teenagers bedroom.
  4. What space needs soundproofing? i.e. Is it a brick walled room, a concrete lined cellar, a plasterboard partition room or a loft conversion.

An established soundproofing firm in Shaw will look into all of these points to offer solutions to your noise issues over a range of budgets. Remedies might vary in accordance with the different materials required for each of the main trouble spots within your property.


To soundproof any sort of room requires 2 key strategies:

  1. Lessen the effect of sound amplification, vibration and reflection by hard surfaces.
  2. Update and improve the level of sound absorption.

This will require an on-site survey to verify which areas require improving from the current state.

Solutions identified by the survey will include adding some materials with different densities and masses to help increase the soundproofing attributes of the room. Soundproofing can be boosted by the addition of acoustic rubber and foam which will absorb sound waves and improve and a room's sound quality.

Voids between floor joists might need insulation to remove resonation gaps between them. If you think about a drum or wooden cajon, you're looking at a noise amplifying void surrounded by a resonating material; basically what you might find inside ceiling and floor joists, or wall cavities.

It is better to use combined layers of different densities to absorb undesired sounds than a solitary layer made of one kind of material. This is due to the fact that the various different materials react better with various frequencies and will deliver a better resolution to your soundproofing.

Any soundproofing company in Shaw must adhere to the the Building Regulations (Part E), if dealing with a residential property. These regulations have the objective of protecting neighbours in the area from the impact of sound pollution.

The Association of Noise Consultants and the Institute of Acoustics are trade organisations who offer training, qualifications and are representative of the very best in contractors and companies who provide soundproofing solutions. Any Shaw firm bearing ANC or IOA accreditation will have been vetted to make certain they offer the highest standards, quality and reliability of work within the industry.

Soundproofing Underlay Shaw

If you're experiencing a lot of noise in your Shaw property, an effective way to lessen this without excessive disturbance is by adding some soundproofing underlay to your floors. These soundproofing underlays can be used successfully on both concrete and wood floors, and underneath engineered wood, laminate, vinyl planks and carpet floor coverings.

When there's a problem with impact noise as opposed to airborne noise, acoustic underlay is particularly effective. Impact noise has become a massive issue in Shaw homes these days, with an increase in the popularity of "hard" floor finishes. Such things as kids running around, moving furniture and general footfall, are the kind of noise that we are talking about here.

Don't be taken in by unprincipled carpet suppliers, who may try to palm you off with regular carpet underlay as a cure for your noise issues - this kind of product shouldn't be confused with genuine acoustic or soundproofing underlay, which is what you really need. Be sure you invest in a good quality acoustic underlay, if you've got serious issues with noise.

Whilst the installation of soundproofing underlay can be quite successful for reducing impact noise within a dwelling, airborne noise like incessant talking, booming TV's and deafening music, can be a whole new ball game, with some products being superior to others and having varying success rates. Before selecting an underlay you should speak to your soundproofing specialist or supplier about your particular situation, and discuss the exact sorts of noise you are attempting to reduce.
