First of all it would be a good idea to appreciate exactly how sound travels before we can identify ways to combat any excessive noise escaping from or intruding into your property.

Soundproofing Torquay Devon (TQ1)

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

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

2. By the vibration of air molecules.

Although sound also travels through water, unless you're eager to reduce sounds from a swimming pool or aquarium, we'll only be interested in how to soundproof the rooms of a structure.


If you look around the space to be soundproofed and discover gaps around doors, heating ducts, ill fitted windows and even electrical sockets and light fittings, these are all causes of sound transmission. What we identify and hear as sound is essentially the vibration of air molecules being picked up by our ear drum. All sounds travel through the air in this same manner; it doesn't matter if it's music playing, nearby traffic, kids playing, machinery or aeroplanes that generates the sound.

You should therefore think of your room as a boat and inspect it carefully for leaks that require sealing.


Sound waves can additionally be reflected by, absorbed by or transferred to solid materials and structures. Sound will vibrate the ceilings, floors and walls of your rooms, and may result in a resonation effect which is transmitted beyond the area. Care has to be taken with solid brick or concrete walls, such as in cellars, because sound can be reflected and amplified to other parts of your property.

So, what's the best way to stop these sound vibrations having an impact on others? Soundproofing of course.


If you have bare floors or floorboards, think about laying a few rugs or cover with a carpet to help reduce any sound reflections and vibrations. Not only will such a simple solution help to reduce your problem with noise, it can also spruce up the room. Hanging wall coverings and curtains can also dampen sound vibrations and reflections through walls and windows without the need to hire a team of professional soundproofing installers.

Look for areas in your room where sound can escape or come in; windows, doors, sockets and light fittings, and seal up any gaps. Stopping up the gaps and holes with a professional acoustic sealant that can be purchased in many DIY outlets and builders merchants, can make a big difference to sound transmission in a room. They are somewhat more expensive than standard sealants or plaster, but they're worthwhile for their soundproofing qualities.

If the room you are working on is an empty canvas and you're doing the soundproofing as you decorate or renovate, think about installing a layer of soundboard or plasterboard, (also called sheet rock, gypsum board or drywall). This is a fairly dense type of board that is a perfect and economic soundproofing material. If you are fitting a music studio, home office or movie room then plasterboard can help reduce sound transference from and to that room, and can be decorated easily after completion. It's better to hire an experienced contractor near you to fit the plasterboard unless you are experienced in this task.

  1. What is the space you want to soundproof made from? (i.e. a plasterboarded partition wall, a fully lined concrete wall or a brick wall).
  2. How large is the area requiring soundproofing?
  3. Is it internal noise or external sounds that you want to deal with? i.e. To lessen traffic, aircraft or noisy neighbours, or is it from internally created sounds from a home cinema or music room for example.
  4. From what direction does the sound appear to be coming from? i.e. Through the doors, windows, floor, walls or ceiling or a mix of all of them.

To soundproof any type of room requires 2 key components:

  1. Sound absorption will have to be increased.
  2. Reduce the effect of sound reflection, vibration and amplification by solid surfaces.

To accurately assess the areas that need improvement, an on-site survey needs to be conducted by a professional soundproofing team.

A specialist will investigate the different methods for adding mass and density to the troublesome areas. This additional mass will include ways to improve absorption of the sound energy by means of acoustic rubber or foam to achieve the maximum sound reduction impacts.

Insulation between any existing voids will be improved or upgraded to lower the sound amplification and resonation of these "sound boxes". If you visualise these spaces as similar to a drum then you'll appreciate that by leaving floor or ceiling joist spaces and wall cavities open, you're effectively creating a noise amplifying area.

Combined layers of materials with different masses and densities do a better job of absorbing noise than a single soundproofing material layer of one kind. The various materials will isolate different frequencies of noise and provide a more rounded feeling and auditory experience to a room.

All soundproofing firms in Torquay must follow the guidelines for domestic buildings set down in the Building Regulations (Part E). These legislation must be followed so as to safeguard yourself and neighbours from being negatively impacted by sound pollution.
