It is important for us to understand how sound travels and is transmitted around a building before it is possible to find techniques to prevent it from happening.

Soundproofing Swansea Wales (SA1)

Basically, sound travels in two ways throughout your home:

1. Through the air by vibration of air molecules.

2. Through the vibration of objects or materials.

Sound is also transmitted through water, but unless you are planning to soundproof a swimming pool or aquarium we will simply focus on its isolation through air and materials.


If you take a good look at your area to be soundproofed and notice gaps around doors, heating ducts, ill fitted windows and even electrical sockets and switches, these are all aspects that can cause the transmission of sound. Any noise vibrates the molecules in the air and these vibrations are what we hear and identify as sound. All sounds travel through the air in this same fashion; it doesn't matter if it's machinery, aeroplanes, kids playing, nearby traffic or music that generates the sound.

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


As sound travels through the air by vibration, then it makes perfect sense that this vibration can be absorbed by, reflected by or transferred to various solid materials. Sound can be transferred around a property from its original source by the vibration of walls, ceilings and floors. Even a solid concrete room, such as a basement, can generate a path of resonance which transmits sound waves, and even amplify them, to other parts of a structure.

So, how can we stop this sound transmission from affecting others? Soundproofing obviously.


Give some thought to covering a bare floor, which resonates and reflects sound, with a carpet or rug. Not only can such a simple and straightforward solution help reduce your problem with noise, but it can also brighten up the room. Wall coverings or window drapes can also be employed to boost soundproofing and are simple to fit and maintain.

Track down areas in your rooms where sound can escape or come in; light fittings, electrical sockets, windows and doors, and seal up the holes or gaps. Sealing the gaps and holes with a special acoustic sealant found in some DIY and building material shops, can make an enormous difference to how your room sounds. They may be somewhat more pricey than regular sealants or plaster, but they are worth every penny for their soundproofing efficiency.

For anybody redecorating a room or renovating a property, look at the soundproofing properties of adding a supplementary layer of plasterboard or soundboard, (also called sheet rock, gyproc or drywall), whilst you are carrying out the project. Plasterboard is a fairly dense material that's both economical and efficient for soundproofing purposes. It's effective if you are setting up a music studio, movie room or home office in your home in Swansea. It is better to hire a competent contractor near you to fit the plasterboard unless you've got some experience in this type of work.

One last easy soundproofing solution is to look at the materials your doors are made of. Although hollow doors are light and comparatively cheap, their soundproofing attributes aren't the best. Solid core doors, whilst a little bit more pricey, can do wonders for improving the soundproofing in a room.


Some properties, for example those on aircraft flight-paths or next to busy roads, naturally have more sound issues and will need other ways to address the predicament. You'll receive the best possible soundproofing results by hiring the expertise of a certified soundproofing company.

Expect to answer the following four questions during an assessment of your soundproofing needs:

  1. What area needs soundproofing? i.e. Is it a concrete lined cellar, a brick walled room, a plasterboard partition room or a loft conversion.
  2. From what direction does the noise seem to be coming from? i.e. Through the windows, doors, flooring, walls or ceiling or a combination of all of these.
  3. What are the specific noises that need to soundproofed? i.e. Is it outside noises such as overflying aircraft, road noise, next door neighbours etc, or is it from inside your house such as a home cinema or music studio.
  4. How large is the room you want to be soundproofed?

With honest answers to these questions a professional soundproofing firm in Swansea will figure out solutions to suit your situation, and just as important, your spending budget. There'll be distinct solutions for each of the main key areas of the space you wish to soundproof.


To soundproof any type of room requires two key strategies:

  1. Reduce the effects on the way sound is transmitted through and reflected by solid surfaces.
  2. Maximise sound absorption.

To effectively assess the aspects that need improvement, an on-site survey should be carried out by a soundproofing specialist.

Conclusions from the survey will include the addition of materials with different densities and masses to help increase the soundproofing qualities of the area. This additional mass will help to increase absorption of the sound energy by the use of acoustic foam or rubber to gain the maximum impact of sound reduction.

Any noticeable voids in the area might need some type of deadening material to be installed between them to lower sound resonation. Floor and ceiling voids and cavities in walls can all be likened to a drum, where the space acts as an amplifying area for undesirable noise.

Soundproofing is maximised if multiple layers of varying density materials are used, as opposed to installing a single sort of material. The various materials will isolate different sound frequencies and provide a more harmonious feeling and auditory experience to a room.

The Building Regulations (Part E) cover the soundproofing of domestic properties, and must be applied by any soundproofing firm in Swansea. These regulations have to be followed so as to protect yourself and neighbours from being negatively impacted by noise pollution.

The Institute of Acoustics (IOA) and the Association of Noise Consultants (ANC) are trade bodies who offer qualifications and training, and are representative of the very best in companies and contractors which offer soundproofing services. Any Swansea contractor displaying IOA or ANC accreditation will have been appraised to make sure they provide the highest standards, reliability and quality of work within the industry.
