It's important for us to learn how sound is transmitted around an area before it's possible to find techniques to stop it from occurring.

Soundproofing Stranraer Scotland (DG9)

There basically two ways in which sound can travel around a room:

1. Through the air by vibration of air molecules.

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

Although sound also travels through liquids, unless you are wanting to eliminate noise from an aquarium or swimming pool, we'll only be interested in how to soundproof rooms within a structure.


If you glance around the space to be soundproofed and discover gaps around doors, ill fitted windows, heating ducts and even light fittings and electrical sockets, these are all factors that can transfer sound. All noise and sounds will create movement and vibration of the molecules in the air, and it is this that we pick up and hear. Irrespective of the source of the sound; children playing, aircraft, road traffic, heavy machinery or music, all sound is produced and transferred in precisely the same way.

Any holes in a room can be viewed as a leak and will need to be blocked.


Sound waves can also be absorbed by, reflected by or transferred to solid objects and structures. The walls, floors and ceilings will all affect how sound travels around a room, and may even transfer that vibration to other areas of a property. Even a solid concrete room, such as a cellar, can generate a path of resonance which transmits sound waves, and even amplify them, to other areas of a structure.

But, how can these sound transmitting effects be stopped from creating an issue? The solution is of course, soundproofing!


A bare floor surface is more resonant than one covered with a rug or carpet. Such a straightforward solution can enhance a room and help dampen down any noises at the same time. Curtains, particularly heavy blackout types, can also suppress any sounds from escaping or invading a room, cost-effectively and without requiring specialist soundproofing.

Finding and plugging any gaps in the rooms, think door frames, windows, light fittings and electrical sockets, is also a straightforward task for a capable do-it-yourselfer. You can find specialist acoustic sealants in many building supply stores that subdue the transmission of sound by suppressing the sound waves. There will be a little difference in the price compared to a normal sealant, however the soundproofing capabilities are much better and can make a big difference to a room.

If your room is a blank canvas and you are doing the soundproofing as you decorate or renovate, consider installing a skin of plasterboard or soundboard, (also known as sheet rock, drywall or gypsum board). This is an efficient and economical soundproofing material due to its dense nature. If you're putting in a games room, study or movie room then plasterboard will help to minimise sound transference to and from that room, and can be decorated easily after completion. If you are not experienced in fitting plasterboard and studding, it is best to hire a specialist team to guarantee the best soundproofing gains from its use.

Soundproofer Quotes in Stranraer Scotland

One last easy soundproofing treatment is to examine the materials your doors are made of. Hollow doors are a comparatively cheap option although their soundproofing qualities are far from the best. Solid core doors, whilst a little bit more expensive, can do wonders for improving the soundproofing qualities of a room.


Some areas, such as those next to busy traffic routes or on aircraft flight paths, naturally have more sound problems and will require other ways to deal with the situation. The best way to resolve these issues is to contact a specialist soundproofing and acoustic firm from the local area.

Soundproofer Near Stranraer Scotland

They will ask the four following questions during a basic appraisal of your requirements:

  1. What noise or sounds are you wanting to suppress? i.e. External factors like next door neighbours, passing trains, street noise etc, or internal sounds from a home cinema or teenagers bedroom.
  2. What are the dimensions of the room or space that needs to be soundproofed?
  3. What room needs to be soundproofed? i.e. Is it a concrete lined cellar, a brick walled room, a plasterboard partition room or an attic conversion.
  4. Where exactly is the main source of noise emanating from? i.e. Overhead, through the floor, ceiling, doors, walls or windows, or a mixture.

An established soundproofing contractor in Stranraer will look at all these factors to offer solutions to your sound issues for various budgets. Solutions will vary in line with the different materials needed for each of the troublesome areas within your environment.


There are two areas that need to be dealt with to soundproof any room or space:

  1. The absorption of sound needs to be increased.
  2. Reduce the ways that sound is transmitted through and reflected by hard surfaces.

To accurately determine the areas that require improvement, an on-site survey must be conducted by a local soundproofing company.

A professional will investigate the different methods for adding density and mass to the troublesome areas. This additional mass will help to enhance the absorption of noises through the use of acoustic rubber or foam to gain the maximum noise reduction impacts.

Any uninsulated voids in the area might need some type of deadening material to be installed between them to lessen noise resonation. If you visualise these spaces like a drum then you'll see that by leaving floor or ceiling joist spaces and wall cavities empty, you're creating a noise amplifying area.

It's better to use combined layers of different density materials to soak up undesired noises than a single layer made from one type of material. This is due to the fact that the various frequencies are absorbed differently by different materials, therefore a range of layers, densities and shapes within your soundproofing panels are needed for the best results.

Any soundproofing specialist in Stranraer will need to adhere to the the Building Regulations (Part E), if your property is residential in nature. These requirements have to be observed in order to protect yourself and others from being negatively impacted by sound pollution.

Look for contractors showing the logos of the Institute of Acoustics (IOA) or the Association of Noise Consultants (ANC) to make sure you're dealing with a business that is fully qualified and knowledgeable in the soundproofing sector. A credible soundproofing company in Stranraer will have undergone a vetting procedure for the professionalism and quality of their workmanship to have become a member of these associations.
