Soundproofer Stokenchurch Buckinghamshire (HP14): If you're worried by the amount of noise in your Stokenchurch property, be it in a lounge, home office, studio or bedroom, you should contemplate installing some soundproofing. Conversely you may wish to soundproof an individual room to keep load noises in, such as in a home cinema or family room, to avoid disturbing others. Whatever your needs are, soundproofing will offer you sanity and peace of mind.
First of all we should appreciate exactly how sound travels and is transmitted before we are able to find ways to eliminate any excessive noise intruding into or escaping from your home.
There basically two ways in which sound can move around a home:
1. Through objects by the vibration of the material.
2. The vibration or air molecules through the air.
Sound also travels through water, however unless you are looking at soundproofing an aquarium or swimming pool we'll simply deal with its isolation via air and materials.
SOUND TRAVEL THROUGH THE AIR
Sounds can be transferred out of and into a room through gaps around doors, heating ducts, ill fitting windows and even electrical sockets and switches. All sound and noise will create the vibration and movement of the molecules in the air, and this is what we hear and identify. All sounds are transferred through the air in this same manner; it does not matter if it's traffic, music, passing aircraft, kids playing or heavy machinery that produces the sound.
If you try and imagine your room as a bucket, you are trying to identify any leaks which need sealing before you fill it up with water.
SOUND TRAVELLING THROUGH OBJECTS AND STRUCTURES
As sound travels through the air by vibration, then it makes sense that this vibration can be reflected by, transferred to or absorbed by different materials. Sound can be transferred around a property from its source by the vibration of walls, ceilings and floors. Even in a room that is built from a dense material that's resistant against vibrations, such as a concrete lined cellar, the sound can be reflected and maybe even amplified to other areas of the building.
How do we stop these vibrations affecting other people? Soundproofing obviously.
BASIC SOUNDPROOFING STEPS
A bare floor surface is more resonant than one covered by a rug or carpet. Such a simple and straightforward solution can enhance a room and help to dampen down any noises at the same time. Hanging wall coverings and curtains can also avoid sound reflections and vibrations through walls and windows without the need to bring in a professional team of soundproofing specialists.
Look for areas around the room where sound can come in or escape from; electrical sockets, windows, light fittings and door frames, and stop up the gaps or holes. It is possible to buy specialist acoustic sealants in many builders merchants which repress the transfer of sound by absorbing the sound waves. Acoustic sealants can be a touch more pricey than standard sealant products, however their impressive soundproofing qualities far outweigh the small extra cost.
If the room you are working on is an empty canvas and you're doing the soundproofing while you decorate or renovate, consider putting up a skin of plasterboard or soundboard, (also known as sheet rock, gyproc or drywall). This is an economic and efficient soundproofing material because of its dense nature. It's great for areas like home cinemas, studies or studios being built within your house in Stokenchurch. If you aren't proficient in putting up plasterboard and framing, it is generally best to hire a specialist team to guarantee you the optimum soundproofing gains from its use.
Lastly you need to inspect all doors in the room you're looking to soundproof. If you've got hollow doors in your rooms you'll find that they can vibrate and will resonate any sound that they experience. Solid doors, while a bit more expensive, can do wonders for improving the soundproofing qualities of a room.
PROFESSIONAL SOUNDPROOFING SOLUTIONS STOKENCHURCH
If the level of sound is extreme in your location, on account of aircraft flying over, or traffic noise from a busy road for example, then more severe ways to combat the excess noise may have to be explored. You will obtain the very best soundproofing outcome by retaining the services of a professional soundproofing company.
Expect to answer the four following questions during a review of your soundproofing requirements:
- What is the space you wish to soundproof constructed from? (i.e. a plasterboarded partition wall, a brick wall or a fully lined concrete wall).
- Where exactly is the main source of the sound coming from? i.e. Overhead, through the ceiling, flooring, windows, doors or walls, or a combination.
- How large is the space you want to have soundproofed?
- What are the specific noises that you need to be soundproofed? i.e. Is it sounds from within your home such as a home cinema or teenagers bedroom, or outside noises such as passing trains, traffic noise, noisy neighbours, etc.
An experienced soundproofing installation company in Stokenchurch will take into consideration all these aspects to offer solutions to your noise issues over a range of budgets. The parts of your room that are causing the biggest issues will each need different solutions.
PROFESSIONAL SOUNDPROOFING OF FLOORS, WALLS and CEILINGS
There are 2 key areas that must be addressed to soundproof any room or space:
- Minimise sound amplifying and resonating.
- Update and improve the level of sound absorption.
An on-site survey is going to be needed to examine the aspects that need improving.
Solutions from the survey will probably include the addition of materials of different masses and densities to help maximise the soundproofing attributes of the room. The use of acoustic foams and rubbers of different mass and density will help to absorb sounds and reduce reflections and transmission sources.
The insulation between any existing voids will be improved or upgraded to reduce the sound amplification and resonation of these "sound boxes". If you imagine these spaces as similar to a drum then you'll appreciate that by leaving floor or ceiling joist spaces and wall cavities empty, 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 single material layer of one type. This is due to the fact that the various different materials react better with varying frequencies and will provide a much better acoustic resolution to your soundproofing exploits.
Part E of the Building Regulations regulate the soundproofing of residential properties, and must be adhered to by any installation company in Stokenchurch. These regulations have the aim of protecting other residents in the area from the effects of noise pollution.
Look for contractors displaying the logos of the Association of Noise Consultants (ANC) or the Institute of Acoustics (IOA) to make certain you are using a business that is knowledgable and fully qualified in the soundproofing sector.
