Soundproofer Staveley Derbyshire (S43): If your Staveley property is being impacted by noise, perhaps you should consider installing some soundproofing to bring a new sense of tranquility to your lounge, bedroom, home office or studio. You could also be concerned about noise from a home cinema or family room escaping and disturbing others. In any event, soundproofing is crucial for your peace of mind.
Firstly it would be advantageous to appreciate precisely how is transmitted and travels before we are able to identify ways to eliminate any loud noise getting into or out of your property.
Basically, sound moves in two ways throughout your home:
1. Through the air by vibration of air molecules.
2. Through objects by the vibration of the material.
As whale and dolphin song demonstrates, sound also penetrates long distance through water, but unless your aim is to soundproof a pool or aquarium we'll look only at the strategies for soundproofing rooms and structures.
SOUND TRAVEL THROUGH THE AIR
Substantial amounts of sound can be transmitted out of and into a room through ill fitted windows, heating ducts, gaps around doors and even electrical sockets and switches. What we identify and hear as sound is essentially the vibration of air molecules being picked up by our ear drum. No matter the source of the noise; kids playing, machinery, road traffic, passing aircraft or music playing, all sound is generated and transmitted in exactly the same manner.
You must therefore imagine your room as a boat and inspect it carefully for leaks before sailing off into the sunset.
SOUND TRAVEL THROUGH STRUCTURES AND OBJECTS
If sound moves through the air by vibrations, then it seems logical that such vibrations can be transferred to, absorbed by or reflected by various materials. Sound can be transferred around a building from its source via the vibration of walls, floors and ceilings. Even if a room is built from a solid material that's somewhat resistant to sound vibrations, such as a concrete cellar, the sound can be reflected and possibly even amplified to other areas of the structure.
How should we prevent these vibrations and sounds from having an adverse effect on other folks? Soundproofing is the remedy.
SIMPLE SOUNDPROOFING STEPS
Think about covering bare floors, which reflect and resonate sound, with a rug or carpet. Not only can such a simple and straightforward solution help to reduce your noise problem, but it can also brighten up the room. Wall coverings or window drapes can also be employed to improve soundproofing and are simple to install.
Another cost-effective and DIY solution is to plug any gaps around electrical sockets, light fittings, door frames and windows. Stopping up the gaps and holes with a professional acoustic sealant found in some DIY and building material shops, will make a big difference to how your room sounds. There will be a considerable difference in the price when compared with a standard sealant, but the soundproofing abilities are far better and can make a huge difference to a room's level of soundproofing.
For anyone redecorating a room or renovating a property, look at the soundproofing benefits of adding another skin of plasterboard or soundboard, (also called gypsum board, drywall or sheet rock), whilst you're undertaking this project. This is a dense type of board that's an economic and useful soundproofing material. It is perfect if you're setting up a home office, games room or cinema room in your home in Staveley. It is far better to hire a competent Staveley tradesman to fit the plasterboard unless you are experienced in this task.
The final solution for do-it-yourself enthusiasts is to look at the doors in your home in Staveley. Hollow doors are a comparatively cheap option but their soundproofing capabilities are a far cry from perfect. Solid doors, whilst a little more expensive, can have a significant effect on the soundproofing capabilities of a room.
PROFESSIONAL SOUNDPROOFING STAVELEY
If the level of sound is excessive in your location, due to aircraft flying over, or traffic noise from a busy road for example, then more substantial methods to reduce the excess noise may need to be explored. You will obtain the very best soundproofing results by hiring the expertise of a certified soundproofing specialist.
The first questions you should be asked are:
- What is the area you want to soundproof constructed from? (i.e. a plasterboarded partition wall, a fully lined concrete wall or a brick wall).
- How big is the room you need to have soundproofed?
- What sounds or noise are you trying to eliminate? i.e. External factors such as neighbours, street noise, passing trains etc, or sounds inside your property from a teenagers bedroom or family room.
- From which direction do the noises seem to be coming from? i.e. Through the ceiling, flooring, doors, walls or windows or a mix of all of them.
With honest answers to these questions a decent soundproofing installer in Staveley will come up with solutions to suit your situation, and just as importantly, your spending budget. Remedies might vary in accordance with the different materials needed for each of the main trouble spots in your property.
PROFESSIONAL SOUNDPROOFING OF FLOORS, WALLS and CEILINGS
Two key components are needed to soundproof any sort of space:
- Cut down on the ways that sound is transmitted through and reflected by hard surfaces.
- Update and enhance the amount of sound absorption.
This requires a site survey to find out precisely what areas require improving from the present condition.
Solutions identified by the survey will include adding some materials of different masses and densities to help boost the soundproofing capabilities of the space. This extra mass will include ways to improve absorption of the sound energy by the use of acoustic rubber or foam to gain the maximum impact of noise reduction.
Insulation between any voids will be improved or upgraded to reduce the sound amplification and resonation of these sound boxes. If you imagine such spaces like a drum or wooden cajon then you'll understand that by leaving wall cavities and floor or ceiling joist spaces empty, you are creating a sound amplifying area.
Soundproofing qualities are maximised if different densities and materials are utilised, as opposed to installing a single kind of material. This is because different frequencies are affected by different types of materials, therefore a variety of layers, densities and shapes within your soundproofing panels are necessary for the best results.
All soundproofing contractors in Staveley need to follow the regulations for domestic properties as specified by Part E of the Building Regulations. This set of regulations is a requirement in law to protect your neighbours and yourself from the effects of sound pollution in a setting where folks work and live.
The Association of Noise Consultants (ANC) and the Institute of Acoustics (IOA) are recognised trade associations who offer training, qualifications and represent the best in contractors and companies which offer soundproofing services. Only those Staveley companies that have been appraised and authorised by these trade organisations for reliability, quality and professionalism are permitted to bear the logo.
