Initially we need to discover just how sound travels before we are able to find ways to eliminate any sound intrusion or escape from your home.

Soundproofing Twyford Berkshire (SO21)

Basically, sound travels in two ways around a room:

1. In open spaces by movement of air.

2. By vibration of solid materials and objects.

Although sound can also travel through liquids, unless you're wanting to reduce sounds from an aquarium or swimming pool, we'll just be concerned with how to reduce sound transmission in the rooms of a structure.


If you check out the space to be soundproofed and notice single glazed windows, gaps around doors, open air-ducting and even light fittings and electrical sockets, these are all causes of sound transmission. All sounds and noise will initiate the vibration and movement of the air molecules, and this is what we identify and hear. Regardless of the source of the sound; traffic, aeroplanes, kids playing, heavy machinery or music, all sounds are generated and transferred in exactly the same fashion.

You must therefore imagine your room as a boat and carefully inspect it for leaks that need to be plugged before you can dare to sail it.


We know that sound is simply the vibration of air reaching the ear, but that vibration is also transferred to solid objects. Sound can be moved around a building from its original source through the vibration of ceilings, walls and floors. Care should be taken with brick or solid concrete walls, such as a cellar or basement, as sound can be transmitted and amplified to other parts of your home.

However, how can these effects be prevented from causing a problem? The answer is of course, soundproofing!


Give some thought to covering bare floors, which resonate and reflect sound, with a rug or carpet. These soft coverings will help absorb noises but can also add a bit of style to an otherwise bare room. Curtains, particularly heavy blackout ones, will also repress any noises from invading or escaping a room, economically and without requiring professional soundproofing.

Look for areas in your rooms where sound can come in or escape from; sockets, light fittings, door frames and windows, and close off any gaps. Sealing the holes and gaps with a professional acoustic sealant that can be purchased in many DIY and building material shops, will make an enormous difference to sound transmission in your rooms. They are a tad more pricey than normal plaster or sealants, but are worth every penny for their soundproofing qualities.

For those of you who are renovating a property or redecorating a room, consider the soundproofing benefits of adding a supplementary layer of soundboard or plasterboard, (also known as sheet rock, gypsum board or drywall), while you are undertaking the project. This is an economic and efficient soundproofing material owing to its dense nature. It's effective for areas like music studios, home offices or movie rooms that are being built within a property. If you're not proficient in fitting plasterboard and studding, it is generally best to employ a professional team to guarantee you the best soundproofing benefits from its use.

Lastly you should check out all doors in the space you're looking to soundproof. If you've got hollow doors in your rooms you'll find they can vibrate and will resonate any sound that hits them. Solid core doors, whilst a bit more expensive, can do wonders for sound isolation in a room.


If the level of sound is high in your area, due to heavy traffic on a busy road nearby, or aircraft flying over for example, then more severe methods to combat the excess noise will have to be investigated. This is when the services of a professional soundproofing contractor will bring the most effective results.

Soundproofer Near Twyford Berkshire

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

  1. How large is the space that you want to be soundproofed?
  2. What noise or sounds are you seeking to eliminate? i.e. External issues such as neighbours, overflying aircraft, traffic noise etc, or internal sounds from a family room or music room.
  3. From what direction does the noise seem to be coming? i.e. Through the floors, doors, ceiling, walls or windows or a mixture of all of them.
  4. What room needs to be soundproofed? i.e. Is it a brick walled room, a stud partitioned room, an attic conversion or a concrete lined cellar.

With accurate answers to these questions a good quality soundproofing firm in Twyford will provide you with solutions for your situation, and just as important, your spending budget. There'll be different solutions for each of the key areas the space you wish to soundproof.


Two key approaches are needed to soundproof any size of room or space:

  1. Reduce sound the amplification and resonating of sound.
  2. Update and increase the level of sound absorption.

A site survey will be necessary to assess the aspects that need to be improved.

The team will look at ways of adding materials with different masses and densities to improve the sound quality of the area. Soundproofing can be enhanced by the addition of acoustic foam and rubber which will absorb excess noise and improve and a room's sound quality.

Voids between joists might need insulation to remove resonation spaces between them. If you envision these spaces like a drum then you'll understand that by leaving wall cavities and floor or ceiling joist spaces empty, you're effectively creating a noise amplification area.

Mixed layers of differing density and mass materials do a better job of absorbing noise than a single soundproofing material layer of one type. This is because the various different materials react better with various frequencies and will deliver a better overall solution to your soundproofing.

All soundproofing installers in Twyford will be needing to follow the legislation for domestic buildings laid out in Part E of the Building Regulations. These regulations have the purpose of protecting neighbours and other residents in the area from the impact of sound pollution.

Trade associations in the soundproofing sector who provide advice, qualifications and training are the Association of Noise Consultants and the Institute of Acoustics. Any Twyford company showing ANC or IOA accreditation has been appraised to make certain they offer the highest standards, reliability and quality of work within the industry.

Government Grants for Soundproofing

In the past there have been Government grants available for assistance with soundproofing in areas of excessive amounts of noise pollution. Until March 2020, grants were offered by the Highways Agency for soundproofing domestic properties if they were in specific areas that are impacted by noise pollution from traffic.

Soundproofing Foam Twyford

Just recently I thought I would look into what homeowners in Twyford are searching for with regards to soundproofing, and apparently when looking on Google and Bing one of the most commonplace requests is "soundproofing foam". And on a local basis queries include "soundproofing foam Twyford". This is rather puzzling, because it implies a lack of understanding by local property owners who seem to be of the opinion that their noise pollution issues can be sorted by installing acoustic foam products.

I'm not trying to spoil your day, but the truth is that this sort of product isn't likely to be the answer to your prayers, and will certainly not block out the racket caused by noisy neighbours in Twyford.

The familiar "egg box" shaped foam, that appears to be the hallmark of soundproofing, is not actually designed for blocking out noise, but has the purpose of reducing echoing and amplifying in music studios and comparable surroundings, where it can also improve the acoustic performance of a room. This product isn't effective for preventing noise from travelling through a neighbours wall, or even moving freely around your home and being a nuisance. As it's porous, acoustic foam absorbs sound and lets sound pass through it, as opposed to blocking it.

It may be that you're actually creating a music room in your property in Twyford, in which instance this product could be handy for you. (Tags: Soundproof Foam Twyford, Acoustical Foam Twyford, Soundproofing Foam Twyford, Acoustic Foam Twyford).

Acoustic Underlay Twyford

If you wish to cut down the noise experienced in your home in Twyford without causing too much disruption, why not think about installing some soundproofing or acoustic underlay on your flooring These acoustic underlays can be successfully used on both wooden and concrete floors, and beneath laminate, vinyl planks, engineered wood and carpet floor coverings.

Essentially, soundproofing underlay can be an especially beneficial solution where your problem is not so much airborne noise but predominantly an impact noise issue. Nowadays, the increased popularity of hard floor finishes has contributed to more issues with impact noise in many Twyford properties. Things like children running around, general footfall and moving furniture, are the sort of noise that we are referring to here.

You shouldn't get acoustic underlay confused with ordinary carpet underlay, although some carpet suppliers may try to palm you off with this claiming it has decent soundproofing qualities. If you are encountering severe noise issues in your home in Twyford, visit a reputable vendor and purchase a decent acoustic underlay that is appropriate for your particular needs.

While the installation of soundproofing underlay can be really effective in reducing impact noise within a home, airborne noise such as deafening music, blaring televisions and shouting, can be a whole new ball game, with some underlays being much better than others and enjoying differing degrees of success. Hence, before selecting an underlay product it is vital to determine the precise kinds of noise you're looking to lower, and discuss this with your soundproofing specialist or supplier.

Acoustic Mineral Wool

For you sound absorption needs in Twyford, acoustic mineral wool (AMW) is one of the most versatile materials available for soundproofing homes or other structures, and has several applications. Enhancing acoustic performance, absorbing airborne sound and dampening vibrations, acoustic mineral wool is specifically designed to be installed in the cavity spaces of ceilings, walls and floors.

Acoustic Mineral Wool Twyford

Coming in slabs of 1200mm x 600mm and in thicknesses of 25 millimetres, 50 millimetres, 75 millimetres and 100 millimetres, acoustic mineral wool is widely available from soundproofing suppliers. Non-flammable and chemically inert, acoustic mineral wool is often made from recycled raw materials. It won't encourage the development of mould, fungi or bacteria, nor does it react with any substances or materials that it comes into close contact with (i.e. masonry, plastics, metal wall ties or brickwork).

Acoustic mineral wool is especially effective as a sound absorption infill when installed between flooring joists, stud partitioning and suspended ceilings, and is widely used in the construction industry for acoustic, fire and thermal insulation. With regards to separating walls and floors, and in order to observe The Building Regulations (Part E), acoustic mineral wool can be used in conjunction with other soundproofing products.
