Before we can discover methods for countering sound pollution, we need to understand just how sound travels and is transmitted.

Soundproofing Shifnal Shropshire (TF11)

Sound can travel in two different ways:

1. In open spaces by movement of air.

2. By vibration of solid materials and structures.

As dolphin and whale song shows, sound also travels long distances through water, however unless you wish to soundproof a pool or aquarium we'll look only at the methods of soundproofing rooms and buildings.

SOUND THROUGH THE AIR

Sounds can be transmitted into and out of a room through heating ducts, single glazed windows, gaps around doors and even electrical sockets and switches. All noise and sound will initiate movement and vibration of the molecules in the air, and it is this that we hear. All sounds are transferred through the air in this same manner; it matters not if it's heavy machinery, aeroplanes, nearby traffic, children playing or music playing that produces the sound.

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

SOUND THROUGH STRUCTURES AND OBJECTS

We now understand that sound is just the vibration of air reaching the ear, but that vibration is also transferred to solid objects. Sound can be transferred around a property from its original source through the vibration of walls, floors and ceilings. Even in a room that is encased in a solid material that is somewhat resistant to sound vibrations, such as a concrete cellar, the sound can be reflected and perhaps even amplified to other parts of the dwelling.

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

SIMPLE SOUNDPROOFING STEPS

A bare floor resonates more than one covered by a rug or carpet. These soft coverings and rugs will help to soak up sounds but can also add a bit of style to an otherwise bare room. Hanging wall coverings and curtains can also avoid sound reflections and vibrations through walls and windows without the need to bring in a team of professional soundproofers.

Locating and sealing any gaps or holes in the rooms, think windows, light fittings, sockets and door frames, is also a simple job for a competent do-it-yourselfer. Stopping up the gaps and holes with a special acoustic sealant found in some DIY and building material shops, will make a huge difference to how your room sounds. There may be a considerable difference in price in comparison with a regular sealant, but the soundproofing capabilities are much better and will make a huge difference to a room.

If your room is a blank canvas and you're soundproofing while you renovate or decorate, look at putting up another layer of soundboard or plasterboard, (also called sheet rock, drywall or gypsum board). Plasterboard is a fairly dense material which is both effective and economical in soundproofing a room. If you're putting in a studio, study or movie room then plasterboard will help to minimise sound transference from and to that room, and can be readily decorated after installation. It is better to hire a professional Shifnal tradesman to put up the plasterboard unless you've got some experience in this type of work.

The final solution for DIY enthusiasts is to consider the doors in your property in Shifnal. Even though hollow doors are light and relatively affordable, their soundproofing characteristics aren't that brilliant. Solid doors, while a tad more pricey, can have a sizeable effect on the soundproofing qualities of a room.

If the sound levels are extreme in your location, on account of traffic noise from a busy road nearby, or aircraft passing overhead for instance, then more severe methods to reduce the excess noise will need to be explored. This is an instance when the services of an experienced soundproofing contractor will deliver the most effective results.

They should ask the following four questions during the initial evaluation of your requirements:

  1. What room needs to be soundproofed? i.e. Is it a concrete lined basement, a plasterboard partition room, a brick walled room or a loft conversion.
  2. How big is the area you want to be soundproofed?
  3. What are the particular noises that need to soundproofed? i.e. Is it external noises such as road noise, noisy neighbours, trains etc, or is it from inside your house such as a music room or home cinema.
  4. Where is most of the sound emanating from? The windows, doors, walls, floors or ceiling.

Your answers to such questions will enable you to get itemised quotes for the various available solutions to suit your situation. They'll offer different methods for soundproofing each of the problem areas within your room.

Two key approaches are needed to soundproof any type of room:

  1. Improve and maximise the amount of sound absorption.
  2. Lower the effect of sound amplification, reflection and vibration by solid surfaces.

A site survey will be necessary to assess the areas that need improving.

Conclusions from the survey will include adding some materials with different masses and densities to help maximise the soundproofing qualities of the space. Soundproofing will be enhanced by the addition of acoustic rubber, foam and other materials which will absorb excess noise and improve and the sound quality of a room.

Insulation between any existing voids will be upgraded or improved to lessen the sound resonation and amplification of these "sound boxes". If you imagine such spaces as similar to a drum or wooden cajon then you can see that by leaving wall cavities and floor or ceiling joist spaces open, you're creating a sound amplifying area.

Combined layers of materials with different densities and masses do a better job of absorbing noise than a solitary layer of one material type. This is because different frequencies are affected by different materials, therefore a diversity of shapes, densities and layers within your soundproofing armoury are necessary for the best results.

Part E of the Building Regulations regulate the soundproofing of residential properties, and will have to be followed by any soundproofing company in Shifnal.
