Before we are able to discover strategies for reducing sound pollution, it would be a good idea to understand exactly how sound travels.

Soundproofing Thornaby North Yorkshire (TS17)

There basically two ways by which sound can travel around a home:

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

2. Through the air by vibration of air molecules.

Although sound also travels through water, unless you're wanting to eliminate noises from an aquarium or pool, we will only be concerned at how to reduce sound transmission in the rooms of a structure.


Substantial levels of sound can be transferred out of and into a room through heating ducts, gaps around doors, ill fitting windows and even electrical switches and sockets. Any sound vibrates the molecules in the air and these vibrations are what we hear as sound. Regardless of the source of the noise; road traffic, music playing, children playing, machinery or aircraft, all sounds are created and transmitted in exactly the same way.

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


Sound waves can additionally be reflected by, transferred to or absorbed by solid materials and structures. Sound will vibrate the floors, ceilings and walls of your rooms, and may cause a resonation effect which is transmitted outside the area. Even in a room that's encased in a solid material which is resistant against sound vibrations, such as a concrete lined cellar, the sound can be reflected and perhaps even amplified to other areas of the property.

But, how can these sound transmitting effects be stopped from creating an issue? The answer is obviously, soundproofing!


A bare floor surface 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 at the same time. Wall coverings or window drapes can also be used to boost soundproofing and are easy to install.

Search for areas around the rooms where noise can come in or escape from; sockets, light fittings, door frames and windows, and seal the gaps or holes. There are special acoustic sealants available on the market that absorb the sound waves, and do not transfer them to surrounding materials. There could be a little difference in the price compared to a normal sealant, however the soundproofing abilities are much better and will make an enormous difference to a room's soundproofing.

If you're fortunate enough to be renovating or redecorating while considering your soundproofing, then think about installing an additional skin of plasterboard (also called sheet rock, drywall or gypsum board). This is an efficient and economical soundproofing material owing to its dense nature. It is excellent for spaces such as studies, music studios or movie rooms being built within your house in Thornaby. It's preferable to hire a professional Thornaby tradesman to install plasterboard unless you are experienced in this task.

Lastly you need to check all doors in the rooms that you're soundproofing. Whilst hollow doors are light and fairly affordable, their soundproofing qualities are not anything to write home about. If you're able to change to solid core doors you will find it improves your soundproofing at minimal extra cost.


If the level of sound is high in your location, because of traffic noise from a busy road nearby, or aircraft passing overhead for example, then more serious ways to deal with the excess noise may have to be explored. The best solution for resolving these problems is to get hold of a decent acoustic and soundproofing contractor from the local region.

They should ask the following four questions during a basic appraisal of your needs:

  1. Where is the principal source of the noise emanating from? i.e. Overhead, through the floor, doors, ceiling, walls or windows, or a combination of all sorts of things.
  2. What kind of area or room do you wish to soundproof? Is it a fully lined concrete wall, a brick wall or a stud partition wall etc.
  3. What sounds or noise are you wanting to subdue? i.e. External issues like passing trains, next door neighbours, road noise etc, or sounds within your property from a family room or teenagers bedroom.
  4. How large is the space that you wish to have soundproofed?

Your answers to such questions will allow you to get quotes for the various available solutions to suit your needs. Solutions might vary in line with the different materials needed for each of the trouble spots within your environment.


To soundproof any sort of room requires two key strategies:

  1. Cut down on the ways that sound is transmitted through and reflected by solid surfaces.
  2. Increase sound absorption.

This will require a site survey to find out which areas require developing from the current condition.

The installer will figure out ways of adding materials with different densities and masses to boost the sound quality of the room. This additional mass will help to improve the absorption of sound by the use of acoustic foam or rubber to achieve the maximum impact of sound reduction.

Voids between joists might need insulation to remove the resonating gap between them. If you envision these spaces as similar to a drum or wooden cajon then you'll understand that by leaving wall cavities and floor or ceiling joist spaces open, you're effectively creating a sound amplification area.

Mixed layers of differing density and mass materials do a better job of absorbing noise than a solitary layer of one material type. This is due to the fact that different materials react in different ways with different frequencies and will deliver a better resolution to your soundproofing.

The Building Regulations (Part E) cover the soundproofing of domestic properties, and will have to be adhered to by any soundproofing installer in Thornaby. Part E of the Building Regulations is a legally binding requirement to protect your neighbours and yourself from the effects of sound pollution in an area where folks live and work.
