Firstly it would be a good idea to appreciate how sound moves and can be transmitted before we are able to find ways to eliminate any excessive noise escaping from or intruding into your property.

Soundproofing Thame Oxfordshire (OX9)

There are only two ways in which sound can be transmitted around a room:

1. The vibration or air molecules through the air.

2. Through the vibration of objects or materials.

As whale and dolphin songs can show, sound also penetrates long distance through water, however unless your aim is to soundproof a swimming pool or aquarium we'll look only at the methods of soundproofing rooms and buildings.


Sound can be transmitted into and out of a room through gaps around doors, ill fitted windows, heating ducts and even electrical switches and sockets. All sound and noise will initiate the vibration and movement of the molecules in the air, and this is what we pick up and hear. All sounds travel through the air in the same fashion; it matters not if it's music, aeroplanes, children playing, machinery or traffic that generates the sound.

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


Sound waves can also be absorbed by, reflected by or transferred to solid objects and structures. Sound will cause vibrations in the ceilings, floors and walls of your rooms, and can cause a resonating effect that is transmitted outside the room itself. Care has to be taken with solid concrete or brick walls, such as a cellar or basement, since sound can be reflected and amplified to other rooms in your property.

So, what's the best way to stop these sounds affecting other people? Soundproofing obviously.


A bare floor is more resonant than one covered with a rug or carpet. Such a straightforward solution can help to damp down any noises and enhance the room to boot. Window drapes and wall coverings can also be employed to enhance soundproofing and are simple to install and maintain.

Another cost-effective and DIY solution is to plug any gaps or holes around sockets, windows, light fittings and doors. There are some unique acoustic sealants available to buy which suppress the sound waves, and do not transmit them to the surrounding materials. Acoustic sealants are inclined to be a bit more pricey than standard sealant products, however the special design has far greater soundproofing performance and is definitely worth the small extra cost.

If your room is an empty canvas and you're soundproofing while you renovate or decorate, think about installing a skin of soundboard or plasterboard, (also known as sheet rock, drywall or gypsum board). This is a fairly dense type of boarding that's a perfect and economic soundproofing material. It's perfect if you are installing a cinema room, music studio or study in your home in Thame. If you are not familiar with fitting plasterboard and studding, it is generally best to hire a professional team to guarantee you the optimum soundproofing gains from its use.

One final simple soundproofing remedy is to examine the materials your doors are made of. Hollow doors are reasonably cheap but their soundproofing qualities are a far cry from the best. Solid wood doors, while a bit more expensive, can do wonders for sound isolation in a room.


If you happen to live in a high noise pollution area, such as next to a busy road or near an airport, you will have to be more ingenius in how to improve the quality of the soundproofing in your house. You will get the most effective soundproofing results by hiring the services of an established soundproofing specialist.

Soundproofer Near Thame Oxfordshire

They should ask the four following questions during the initial appraisal of your requirements:

  1. What sounds or noise are you seeking to eliminate? i.e. External things such as street noise, aircraft, neighbours etc, or sounds inside your house from a home cinema or music room.
  2. How large is the area requiring soundproofing?
  3. Exactly where is the major source of sound emanating from? i.e. Overhead, through the walls, windows, doors, flooring or ceiling, or a combination of all sorts of things.
  4. What type of area or room do you wish to soundproof? Is it a brick wall, a plasterboarded partition wall or a fully lined concrete wall etc.

With accurate answers to these questions a good soundproofing installer in Thame will be able to supply you with solutions to suit your circumstances, and just as importantly, your budget. They will provide different strategies for soundproofing each of the troublesome areas within your room.


There are two key areas that need to be addressed to successfully soundproof any space:

  1. Reduce sound reverberation and amplifying.
  2. The absorption of sound will need to be maximised.

This requires a site survey to determine what areas need improving from the current condition.

Solutions identified by the survey will probably include the addition of materials of different masses and densities to help increase the soundproofing capabilities of the space. This additional mass will include ways to enhance the absorption of noises by the use of acoustic rubber or foam to gain the maximum impact of noise reduction.

Voids between floor joists may need insulating to remove resonation gaps between them. Floor and ceiling voids and wall cavities can all be assimilated with a drum, where the space inside acts like an amplification source for unwanted sounds.

Combined layers of materials with different densities and masses do a better job of absorbing sound than a single soundproofing material layer of one kind. This is due to the fact that the various different materials react in different ways with various frequencies and will deliver a better resolution to your soundproofing exploits.

All soundproofing installers in Thame have to follow the guidelines for domestic properties as laid out in the Building Regulations (Part E). Such regulations must be followed in order to protect yourself and others from being negatively impacted by noise pollution.

Keep an eye out for companies bearing the logos of the Institute of Acoustics or the Association of Noise Consultants to be sure you're using a business which is knowledgable and fully qualified in the soundproofing industry. Any Thame contractor bearing IOA or ANC accreditation has been vetted to make certain they provide the highest reliability, quality and standards of workmanship within the soundproofing industry.

Soundproofing Foam Thame

I was interested to discover just recently that a popular search phrase entered on Google and Bing was "soundproofing foam", and for local searches "acoustical foam Thame" and "soundproofing foam Thame". Now, this would imply that many folks are in search of a solution to soundproof their properties in Thame, and are looking to soundproofing foam to achieve this.

The last thing I wish to do is ruin your day, but if you're assuming that the din from your noisy next door neighbours in Thame can be eliminated with a product like this, you're way off the mark.

Stopping the transmission of noise isn't actually the function of the familiar "egg box" shaped foam, which was in fact created for use in music studios and comparable situations, where it can enhance the sound clarity in a room, and reduce amplifying, reverberation and echoing. This type of soundproofing foam isn't effective in stopping sound from passing through a wall or preventing noise from moving around the rooms of your house. Acoustic foam is in fact porous and does not block sound, it absorbs it and actually permits sound to pass through it.

If however, you're changing some free space into a music studio, this may be a valuable product for you, and can be purchased in different thicknesses (usually 25mm and 50mm), and in various tile and sheet sizes.

Acoustic Underlay Thame

If you are experiencing a lot of noise in your property in Thame, an effective way to reduce this without excessive disruption is by adding some soundproofing underlay to your floors. Both concrete and timber floors are suitable surfaces for these acoustic underlays, and they can be laid under engineered wood, carpet, vinyl planks and laminate.

Basically, soundproofing underlay can be a particularly beneficial solution where your problem is mostly impact noise and not an airborne noise issue. The more widespread use of hard floor finishes means that impact noise pollution is becoming an ever-increasing problem for householders in Thame. The sort of noise issues we're talking about here is children stomping around, shifting furniture and general footfall, particularly from rooms upstairs.

Do not confuse ordinary carpet underlay with genuine soundproofing underlay, because some unscrupulous carpet stockists might try to pass off such products, with claims that they are suitable substitutes. If you're experiencing significant noise problems in your property in Thame, visit a respected dealer and buy a good quality soundproofing underlay that's appropriate for your particular circumstances.

While it is a suitable product with regard to impact noise, soundproofing underlay has differing levels of success when it comes to dealing with airborne noise problems such as blaring TV's, deafening music and constant talking, and some products are certainly far better than others. Consequently, when selecting an underlay product it is essential to understand the specific kinds of noise you are hoping to lower, and have a discussion about this with your soundproofing specialist or supplier in advance.
