Stonehaven Soundproofing & Noise Reduction Services

Soundproofer Stonehaven Scotland (AB39): If the level of noise is an issue in your Stonehaven home then it may be time to think about putting in some soundproofing to make your home office, bedroom, studio or lounge a sanctuary of peace and quiet from your neighbours and the outside world. Conversely you may wish to soundproof an individual room to keep noise in, for instance in a home cinema or family room, so that others aren't disturbed. No matter what soundproofing requirements are needed, it's essential for everybody's peace of mind and sanity.

Initially we should appreciate exactly how sound travels and is transmitted before we are able to find ways to eliminate any excessive noise escaping from or intruding into your home.

Soundproofing Stonehaven Scotland (AB39)

There are only two ways by which sound can move around a room:

1. The vibration or air molecules through the air.

2. Through the vibration of objects or materials.

As whale and dolphin song shows, sound also penetrates long distance through water, but unless you wish to soundproof a pool or aquarium we will look only at the methods of soundproofing buildings and rooms.

SOUND TRAVEL THROUGH THE AIR

If you check around the room to be soundproofed and notice heating ducts, gaps around doors, single glazed windows and even electrical sockets and switches, these are all factors that can transfer sound. What we identify and hear as sound is really the vibration of air molecules reaching our ear drums. It doesn't matter whether it's children playing, road traffic, aeroplanes, music or machinery, they all generate and transmit sound in the same manner.

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

SOUND TRAVELLING THROUGH STRUCTURES AND OBJECTS

Sound waves can also be absorbed by, transferred to or reflected by solid materials and structures. Sound will cause vibrations in the walls, floors and ceilings of your rooms, and may result in a resonation effect that's transferred outside of the room itself. Care must be taken with solid concrete or brick walls, such as a cellar or basement, because sound can be transmitted and sometimes even amplified to other parts of your home.

But, how can these sound generating effects be prevented from causing a problem? The answer is obviously, soundproofing!

BASIC SOUNDPROOFING STEPS

Give some thought to covering a bare floor, which reflects and resonates sound, with a carpet or rug. Not only will such a simple and straightforward solution help to reduce your problem with noise, it can also brighten up the room. Curtains, and especially substantial blackout types, can also stifle any sounds from escaping or invading the area, cost-effectively and without requiring professional installation.

Track down areas in the room where noise can escape or come in; door frames, windows, light fittings and electrical sockets, and close off any gaps. Stopping up the holes and gaps with a professional acoustic sealant that can be purchased in some DIY and building material shops, can make a huge difference to how your room sounds. There could be a considerable difference in price compared to a normal sealant, but the soundproofing capabilities are far better and will make a massive difference to a room.

If you are going to be renovating or redecorating while dealing with your soundproofing, then think about the possibility of putting up an additional layer of plasterboard (also called gypsum board, drywall or sheet rock). Plasterboard is a fairly dense material that is both effective and economical for soundproofing an area. It is great if you are installing a cinema room, home office or studio in your home in Stonehaven. It is wise to hire a competent Stonehaven tradesman to fit the plasterboard unless you have experience in its application.

Lastly you need to check out all doors in the space you're planning to soundproof. If you have hollow doors fitted to rooms you'll find that they can vibrate and will resonate any sound that they experience. Changing hollow core doors for solid core will improve the soundproofing of a room with only a little more cost.

Some properties, such as those on aircraft flight-paths or next to busy roads, naturally have more issues with sound pollution and will need other ways to address the dilemma. This is where retaining the services of an established soundproofing contractor will bring the greatest results.

The initial questions you should be asked are:

  1. How large is the space requiring soundproofing?
  2. What area needs to be soundproofed? i.e. Is it a loft conversion, a stud partitioned room, a concrete lined cellar or a brick walled room.
  3. What are the particular noises that you need to be soundproofed? i.e. Is it outside noises such as aircraft, neighbours playing loud music, traffic noise etc, or is it from inside your property such as a music studio or family room.
  4. From what direction do the noises appear to be coming from? i.e. Through the doors, floors, windows, ceiling or walls or a mixture of all.

With accurate answers to these queries a professional soundproofing firm in Stonehaven will come up with solutions for your situation, and just as importantly, your allotted budget. There will be distinct remedies for each of the key areas the room you want to soundproof.

PROFESSIONAL SOUNDPROOFING OF CEILINGS, WALLS and FLOORS

To soundproof any kind of room requires two key approaches:

  1. Increase and maximise the level of sound absorption.
  2. Minimise sound amplifying and reverberation.

To accurately assess the aspects that need to be improved, a site survey should be carried out by a soundproofing company in Stonehaven.

The installer will work out ways of adding materials with different densities and masses to increase the sound quality of the room. The addition of acoustic rubbers and foams of different density and mass will help in absorbing noise and reduce reflections and transmission sources.

Voids between joists might need insulation to remove resonation spaces between them. If you visualise a drum for instance, you are looking at a sound increasing void surrounded by a resonating material; essentially what you might find inside ceiling and floor joists, or wall cavities.

Soundproofing abilities 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 materials, therefore a variety of layers, densities and shapes within your soundproofing armoury are needed for the best results.

All soundproofing providers in Stonehaven need to follow the requirements for domestic buildings specified by the Building Regulations (Part E). These requirements have to be observed so as to safeguard yourself and neighbours from being negatively impacted by noise pollution.

The Institute of Acoustics and the Association of Noise Consultants are trade associations who provide qualifications and training, and represent the best in companies and contractors that offer soundproofing services. A reputable soundproofing firm in Stonehaven will have been subject to a verification procedure for the quality and professionalism of their work to have been certified as a member of these associations.

Acoustic Mineral Wool

Having various applications for your noise reduction needs, AMW (or acoustic mineral wool) is one of the handiest materials for soundproofing properties in Stonehaven. Acoustic grade mineral wool is designed specifically for installation in the cavity spaces of ceilings, floors and walls, to dampen vibrations, improve acoustic performance and absorb sound waves.

Acoustic Mineral Wool Stonehaven

Acoustic mineral wool commonly comes in 1200mm x 600mm "slabs" and is readily available in thicknesses of 25 millimetres, 50 millimetres, 75 millimetres and 100 millimetres. Often partly made with recycled raw materials (about 20%), AMW is non-combustible and is chemically inert. It will not encourage the development of mould, fungi or bacteria, nor does it react with any materials that it comes into close contact with (i.e. masonry, brickwork, plastics or metal wall ties).

When used as a sound absorbing infill between flooring joists, suspended ceilings and stud partitions, acoustic mineral wool is especially effective, and it's recognised in the construction sector for its acoustic, fire and thermal insulation qualities. When it comes to separating walls and floors, and in order to observe Part E of the Building Regulations, AMW can be used alongside other acoustic products.

Acoustic or Soundproofing Underlay Stonehaven

If you're experiencing a lot of noise in your Stonehaven property, an excellent way to reduce this without excessive disruption is by installing some soundproofing underlay on your floors. These are okay for use under laminate, engineered wood, carpet or vinyl planks floor coverings, and are designed for both wood and concrete floors.

When your problem is not so much airborne noise but mostly impact noise, soundproofing underlay is an especially beneficial solution. A recent increase in the popularity of "hard" floor finishes in Stonehaven, means problems with impact noise are becoming more and more widespread. Such things as moving furniture, general foot traffic and children running around, are the kind of noise we're referring to here.

Don't be taken in by unscrupulous carpet suppliers, who may try to palm you off with standard carpet underlay as a solution to your noise issues - this sort of product should not be confused with genuine acoustic underlay, which is what you really need. If you've got serious issues with noise be sure to buy a good quality acoustic underlay.

Although it's an effective product for impact noise, soundproofing underlay has differing levels of success when it comes to reducing airborne noises like shouting, deafening music and blaring televisions, and some products are superior to others. Therefore, when choosing a particular underlay it's important to identify the exact sorts of noise you're striving to minimise, and chat about this with your supplier or soundproofing expert beforehand.

Soundproofing Foam Stonehaven

It appears from some simple keyword research that a frequent search on Google and other search engines is for "soundproofing foam" and for home owners in Stonehaven, perhaps "soundproofing foam Stonehaven". Now, that is rather interesting because this would imply that local householders are turning to acoustic foam as an answer to their noise issues in Stonehaven.

It is not my intention to be the bearer of bad tidings, but most noise related issues can't be solved with this product, and if your goal is to reduce the din caused by noisy next door neighbours in Stonehaven, you will need to look for something better.

Blocking out noise isn't actually the purpose of the familiar "egg box" style foam, which was actually developed for use in music studios and similar situations, where it can enhance the sound clarity in a room, and reduce resonation, echoing and amplification. This type of acoustic foam isn't efficient at preventing noise from passing through a neighbouring wall, or stopping sound from moving around your house. Acoustic foam is in fact porous and doesn't block noise, it absorbs it and lets sound pass through it.

If however, you happen to have a music studio, this may be a valuable product for you to use, and can be bought in various thicknesses (usually 25mm and 50mm), and in a choice of sheet and tile sizes.
