Soundproofer Sunninghill Berkshire (SL5): If your property in Sunninghill is being impacted by noise, maybe you should consider putting in some soundproofing to bring a new sense of tranquility to your lounge, studio, home office or bedroom. In some circumstances you could be investigating soundproofing so you don't disturb others from a music studio, home cinema or kid's room. No matter which soundproofing needs are required, it will be vital for you and your neighbour's peace of mind.
Initially we should learn how sound moves and can be transmitted before we can identify ways to combat any excessive noise escaping from or intruding into your home.
Basically, sound moves in two ways around a home:
1. By the vibration of air molecules.
2. Through the vibration of objects or materials.
As dolphin and whale songs can show, sound also travels long distances through water, however unless you wish to soundproof an aquarium or swimming pool we will just look at the strategies for soundproofing structures and rooms.
SOUND THROUGH THE AIR
If you take a good look at the area or room to be soundproofed and notice open ducting, single glazed windows, gaps around doors and even light fittings and electrical sockets, these are all factors that can transfer sound. What we hear as sound is essentially air molucules being vibrated and being picked up by our ear drums. Irrespective of the source of the noise; music playing, busy traffic, kids playing, passing aircraft or heavy machinery, all sound is generated and transmitted in exactly the same manner.
Any gaps within the room can be looked at as leaks and will have to be plugged.
SOUND TRAVEL THROUGH OBJECTS AND STRUCTURES
We know that sound is simply the vibration of air reaching the ear, but that vibration is also absorbed by solid objects. Sound can be transferred around a dwelling from its original source via the vibration of walls, ceilings and floors. Even in a room that's built from a dense material that is somewhat resistant to vibrations, such as a concrete basement, the sound can be reflected and perhaps even amplified to other areas of the property.
How do we stop this sound transmission from affecting other people? Soundproofing obviously.
SIMPLE STEPS IN SOUNDPROOFING
Consider covering bare floors, which resonate and reflect sound, with a carpet or rug. Such a simple solution can help to damp down any noises and enhance the room at the same time. Window drapes and wall coverings can also be used to improve soundproofing and are easy to install.
Another cost-effective and DIY remedy is to plug any gaps around doors, windows, light fittings and electrical sockets. Sealing the holes and gaps with an acoustic sealant that can be purchased in some DIY and building material shops, can make an enormous difference to sound transmission in your rooms. Acoustic sealants can be a bit more expensive than regular plaster or other sealant products, but their outstanding soundproofing qualities far outweigh the additional cost.
For anyone redecorating a room or renovating a property, consider the soundproofing gains of adding another layer of soundboard or plasterboard, (also called sheet rock, gyproc or drywall), while you are tackling this work. Plasterboard is a fairly dense material that is both economical and efficient for soundproofing purposes. If you are putting in a games room, study or cinema room then plasterboard will help reduce sound transference from and to that room, and can be decorated easily after installment. If you do decide on plasterboard to aid your soundproofing exploits it is best to bring in a professional fitter in Sunninghill, to gain the maximum possible effect from its installment.
The last solution for do-it-yourself enthusiasts is to check out the doors within your home in Sunninghill. If you've got hollow doors fitted to rooms you will find they can vibrate with any sound that hits them. Exchanging hollow core doors for solid core will enhance the soundproofing of an area with only a small extra cost.
PROFESSIONAL SOUNDPROOFING SUNNINGHILL
If the sound pollution is excessive in your area, because of aircraft passing overhead, or heavy traffic on a busy road for example, then more serious ways to combat the excess noise will need to be explored. This is when hiring the services of an experienced soundproofing company will deliver the greatest results.
They should ask the four following questions during a basic appraisal of your needs:
- What is the main place where the sound causes the most problems? i.e. Is it emanating through windows, down from above, from the walls or up through the flooring, or is it a mix of all these things.
- How big is the space you need to be soundproofed?
- Is it internal noise or external sounds that you want to deal with? i.e. To reduce street noise, trains or neighbours, or is it from internally created sounds from a home cinema or music room for example.
- What kind of room or property would you like to soundproof? Is it a brick wall, a stud partition wall or a lined concrete wall etc.
Your answers to these questions will enable you to get quotes for the various available solutions to suit your requirements. Remedies will vary according to the different materials needed for each of the trouble spots within your environment.
PROFESSIONAL SOUNDPROOFING OF WALLS, CEILINGS and FLOORS
To soundproof any sort of room requires 2 key components:
- The absorption of sound will need to be maximised.
- Minimise sound amplifying and reverberation.
Doing this requires an on-site survey to find out what areas require enhancing from the present state.
A professional will consider the different ways to add mass and density to the areas with problems. The addition of acoustic rubbers and foams of different mass and density will help to absorb noises and reduce reflections and transmission sources.
The insulation between any voids will be improved or upgraded to reduce the noise resonation and amplification of these sound boxes. Wall cavities or flooring and ceiling voids can all be assimilated with a drum, where the space acts like an amplification source for unwanted noise.
It is far better to use mixed layers of different densities to absorb undesirable sounds than a single layer made of one soundproofing material. This is due to the fact that different frequencies are affected by different materials, therefore a diversity of layers, shapes and densities within your soundproofing armoury are required.
All soundproofing installers in Sunninghill need to follow the requirements for domestic properties as set down in the Building Regulations (Part E). This set of regulations is a legally binding requirement to protect yourself and neighbours from the negative effects of noise pollution in an environment where folks live and work.
Look for companies showing the logos of the Institute of Acoustics (IOA) or the Association of Noise Consultants (ANC) to guarantee that you're using a business which is knowledgable and fully qualified in the soundproofing industry. Any Sunninghill firm showing ANC or IOA accreditation will have been appraised to ensure they offer the highest standards, quality and reliability of work within the soundproofing industry.
