Whichever soundproofing needs are required, it's vital for everybody's sanity and peace of mind.

Firstly it will help if we discover just how sound travels before we can identify ways to combat any excessive noise intruding into or escaping from your property.

Soundproofing Stenhousemuir Scotland (FK5)

There are only two ways in which sound can move around a home:

1. Within and around a solid object by reflection and vibration.

2. In open spaces by movement of air.

As dolphin and whale song demonstrates, sound also travels through water, but unless your intention is to soundproof an aquarium or pool we will look only at the methods of soundproofing rooms and structures.

SOUND THROUGH THE AIR

Any open air-ducting, gaps around doors, ill fitted windows and even electrical switches and sockets can all be methods of transmission of sound outside or into a room. What we identify and hear as sound is essentially air molucules being vibrated and being picked up by our ear drum. It does not matter if it's music playing, nearby traffic, kids playing, heavy machinery or aeroplanes, they all create and transmit sound in the same manner.

Any holes within a room can be viewed as leaks and will need to be plugged.

SOUND TRAVELLING THROUGH OBJECTS AND STRUCTURES

Sound waves can also be absorbed by, transferred to or reflected by solid objects and structures. The ceilings, walls and floors will all have an effect on how sound travels around an area, and can even transport those vibrations to other parts of a building. Care has to be taken with brick or solid concrete walls, such as in cellars or basements, as sound can be transmitted and amplified to other parts of your house.

So, what's the best way to stop this sound transmission from affecting other people? Soundproofing obviously.

BASIC STEPS IN SOUNDPROOFING

A bare floor surface resonates more than one covered with a carpet or rug. Such a simple solution can help to damp down any noises and spruce up the room to boot. Curtains, particularly heavy blackout styles, will also suppress any sounds from escaping or invading a room, cost-effectively and without requiring specialist soundproofing.

Another economical and DIY remedy is to plug any gaps around windows, light fittings, doors and sockets. There are unique acoustic sealants available to buy which suppress the sound waves, and don't transfer them to surrounding materials. They are somewhat more pricey than regular sealants or plaster, but they are more than worth it for their soundproofing qualities.

If you're fortunate enough to be renovating or redecorating while dealing with your soundproofing requirements, then look into putting up an additional skin of plasterboard (also known as gyproc, sheet rock or drywall). This is a fairly dense board that's a perfect and economic soundproofing material. It is ideal if you're installing a home office, cinema room or studio in your property in Stenhousemuir. If you are not proficient in fitting plasterboard and framing, it is better to employ a specialist team to guarantee the optimum soundproofing results from its use.

The last solution for do-it-yourself enthusiasts is to look at the doors in your property in Stenhousemuir. If you have hollow doors installed in your rooms you'll discover they can vibrate and will resonate any sound that is aimed at them. If you're able to change to solid core doors you will find it enhances your soundproofing at minimal extra cost.

The initial questions you should be asked are:

  1. What are the specific noises that need to soundproofed? i.e. Is it outside noises such as traffic noise, noisy neighbours, overflying aircraft etc, or is it from inside your property such as a family room or music room.
  2. How big is the room that needs soundproofing?
  3. Where exactly is the principal source of the noise emanating from? i.e. Above, through the walls, windows, doors, ceiling or floor, or a combination of all sorts of things.
  4. What is the area you want to soundproof made from? (i.e. a brick wall, a lined concrete wall or a plasterboarded partition wall).

An established soundproofing company in Stenhousemuir will look into all these aspects to provide remedies for your noise issues over a range of budgets. The parts of your room that are causing the biggest problems may each require different solutions.

PROFESSIONAL SOUNDPROOFING OF CEILINGS, WALLS and FLOORS

To soundproof any kind of room requires 2 key components:

  1. Reduce sound the resonating and amplification of sound.
  2. Improve sound absorption.

To accurately analyse the areas that need improvement, an on-site survey should be completed by a professional soundproofing team.

Solutions identified by the survey will probably include the addition of materials of different masses and densities to help increase the soundproofing capabilities of the space. Soundproofing can be boosted by the installation of acoustic foam and rubber which absorbs soundwaves and improves and the sound quality of a space.

Insulation between any voids will be upgraded to lessen the sound resonation and amplification of these sound boxes. If you think about a drum for example, you are looking at a noise amplifying void surrounded by a resonating material; in essence what you may find within floor and ceiling joists, or cavities in walls.

Soundproofing is maximised if different densities and materials are utilised, as opposed to installing only one form of material. The different materials will eliminate different frequencies of sound and deliver a more harmonious auditory experience and feeling to a room.

All soundproofing contractors in Stenhousemuir will be needing to follow the legislation for residential properties specified by Part E of the Building Regulations. This regulation has the purpose of protecting neighbours in the immediate area from the impact of noise pollution.

Look out for companies bearing the logos of the Institute of Acoustics (IOA) or the Association of Noise Consultants (ANC) to make certain you're dealing with a business that's fully qualified and knowledgeable in the soundproofing sector. A reliable soundproofing contractor in Stenhousemuir will have been through a verification procedure for the professionalism and quality of their workmanship to have become a member of these organisations.

Soundproofing Underlay Stenhousemuir

One of the least disruptive techniques for adding a bit of soundproofing to your Stenhousemuir property is through the installation of soundproofing or acoustic underlayment. These are okay for use beneath vinyl planks, laminate, carpet or engineered wood floor coverings, and are suitable for both wooden and concrete floors.

Basically, soundproofing underlay can be an especially effective solution when your problem is not so much airborne noise but predominantly an impact noise issue. The more widespread use of hard floor finishes means that impact noise has become a rising problem for homeowners in Stenhousemuir. Rooms upstairs are the main origin of such issues, with general footfall, kids running around and moving furniture being frequent concerns.

You shouldn't get acoustic underlay confused with regular carpet underlay, although some unprincipled carpet retailers might attempt to sell you this with claims of soundproofing benefits. If your noise problems are serious, be sure to buy a quality soundproofing underlay from a reputable vendor.

Although it is a winning product with regard to impact noise, acoustic underlay has varying degrees of success when it comes to dealing with airborne noise problems like shouting, loud music and booming televisions, and some products are certainly better than others. Hence, it's important to specify the exact sorts of noise you are hoping to lower before selecting a particular underlay, and talk to your supplier or soundproofing specialist about your particular circumstances.

Acoustic Mineral Wool

One of the most useful products for the soundproofing of properties in Stenhousemuir, acoustic mineral wool has a number of applications for your sound absorption needs. When placed in the cavity spaces of floors, walls and ceilings, acoustic mineral wool is designed specifically to dampen vibration, improve acoustic performance and absorb airborne sound.

Acoustic Mineral Wool Stenhousemuir

Typically available in slabs of 600mm x 1200mm, AMW also comes in several thicknesses (25mm, 50mm, 75mm and 100mm). Often partly made with recycled materials (approximately 20%), acoustic mineral wool is non-flammable and has an inert chemical composition. It does not have a reaction with masonry, plastics, brickwork, metal wall ties, or other materials that it comes into close contact with, nor does it encourage the development of fungi, bacteria or mould.

AMW is particularly effective as a sound absorption filler when used between suspended ceilings, stud partitioning and floor joists, and is widely recognised in the building sector for acoustic, fire and thermal insulation. To comply with Part E of the Building Regulations in relation to separating walls and floors, acoustic mineral wool can be used in partnership with other sound absorbing products.

Soundproofing Foam Stenhousemuir

It appears from some elementary keyword research that a common search on Google and Yahoo is for "soundproofing foam" and for local people, "soundproofing foam Stenhousemuir". That is actually quite interesting, as it illustrates that Stenhousemuir householders are under the impression that acoustic foam is a suitable product for solving their noise pollution problems.

It's not my intention to spoil your day, but most noise related issues can't be helped by acoustic foam, and if your goal is to reduce the din caused by noisy neighbours in Stenhousemuir, you will have to look for something better.

Stopping the transmission of noise is not the function of the familiar "egg box" shaped foam, which was in fact designed for use in music studios and comparable situations, where it can improve the acoustic performance of a room, and reduce amplification, echoing and resonation. This sort of soundproofing foam isn't effective in preventing noise from penetrating a neighbouring wall, or stopping sound from moving freely around the rooms of your house. Because acoustic foam is porous and spongy, it actually allows 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 valuable product for you, and can be purchased in various thicknesses (usually 25mm and 50mm), and in different sheet and tile sizes.

Stenhousemuir Skip Hire

Let's be honest, most home improvements or property revamps in Stenhousemuir usually generate quite a bit of waste. For your soundproofing project, varying amounts of waste will be created, subject to your particular circumstances, and the scale and scope of your project. You might need to arrange your own waste removal, since a lot of tradespeople don't include this in their quote.

Skip Hire Stenhousemuir

The most popular technique that homeowners in Stenhousemuir use to dispose of such waste is to rent a skip from a local skip hire company. Coming in an array of different sizes, skips can be booked to match the amount of waste that you are likely to generate. The different sizes of skip include mini-skips, midi-skips, builders skips and roll-on-roll-off skips, and for different projects skip bags are also available.
