Initially we need to learn just how sound moves and can be transmitted before we are able to identify ways to combat any excessive noise escaping from or intruding into your home.

Sound basically travels in two ways throughout your home:

1. By the vibration of air molecules.

2. By vibration of solid materials and objects.

Although sound also travels through water, unless you're wanting to eliminate noise from a swimming pool or aquarium, we'll just be interested in how to soundproof rooms within a structure.


If you check out the room or area to be soundproofed and detect ill fitted windows, open air-ducting, gaps around doors and even electrical sockets and switches, these are all causes of sound transmission. All sound and noise will create the vibration and movement of the molecules in the air, and it is this that we pick up and hear. No matter what the source of the noise; aeroplanes, traffic, children playing, music or heavy machinery, all sounds are generated and transmitted in exactly the same way.

Any openings in a room can be looked at as leaks and will have to be blocked.


Sound waves can also be absorbed by, reflected by or transferred to solid objects and structures. The walls, floors and ceilings will all affect how sound travels around a room, and can even transfer that vibration to other rooms in a property. Care should be taken with solid brick or concrete walls, such as a basement, as sound can be transmitted and sometimes even amplified to other parts of your house.

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


Think about covering a bare floor surface, which reflects and resonates sound, with a carpet or rug. Not only will such a simple solution help to reduce your noise problem, but it can also perk up the room. Curtains, especially heavy blackout styles, will also stifle any sounds from escaping or invading a room, cost-effectively and without requiring specialist soundproofing.

Another economical and do-it-yourself remedy is to plug any holes around door frames, light fittings, windows and electrical sockets. It is possible to purchase specialist acoustic sealants in many building supply stores that suppress the transmission of sound by absorbing the sound waves. They may be a tad more pricey than standard plaster or sealants, but they are worth every penny for their soundproofing qualities.

If you're fortunate enough to be redecorating or renovating while dealing with your soundproofing, then think about the possibility of putting up an extra skin of plasterboard (also referred to as sheet rock, drywall or gyproc). This is a fairly dense type of board that is a perfect and economic soundproofing material. If you're fitting a study, home cinema or studio then plasterboard can help reduce sound transference to and from that room, and can be decorated easily after completion. It's wise to hire a professional Urmston tradesman to install plasterboard unless you've some experience in this kind of work.

Soundproofer Quotes in Urmston Greater Manchester

Last but not least you should check out all doors in the room you're seeking to soundproof. Although hollow doors are lightweight and relatively inexpensive, their soundproofing characteristics are not that brilliant. If you're able to change to solid wood doors you'll find it boosts your room's soundproofing at very little extra cost.


If your home is in a high sound pollution location, such as near an airport or next to busy roads, you will need to be more inventive in your endeavours to boost the quality of the soundproofing in your home.

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

  1. From which direction do the sounds seem to be coming? i.e. Through the windows, floor, ceiling, doors or walls or a mix of all of these.
  2. Is it internal sounds or external noise that you wish to tackle? i.e. To suppress next door neighbours, aircraft or traffic, or is it from internally created sounds from a home cinema or music room for instance.
  3. What is the room you wish to soundproof constructed from? (i.e. a lined concrete wall, a brick wall or a plasterboarded partition wall).
  4. How big is the space that you wish to have soundproofed?

A certified soundproofing installer in Urmston will take into consideration all of these factors to provide remedies for your sound issues for various budgets. They'll provide you with different methods for soundproofing each of the problem areas within your home.


Two key approaches are required to soundproof any kind of room:

  1. Reduce the effects on the way sound is reflected off and transmitted through hard surfaces.
  2. Update and increase the level of sound absorption.

To precisely analyse the elements that need improvement, an on-site survey should be carried out by a local soundproofing company.

Solutions identified by the survey will include adding some materials of different masses and densities to help boost the soundproofing properties of the room. Soundproofing will be boosted by the application of acoustic foam and rubber which will absorb sound waves and improve and the sound quality of a space.

Any voids in the room may need some sort of muffling material to be installed between them to lower noise resonation. Floor and ceiling voids and cavities in walls can all be likened to a drum, where the space inside acts like an amplification source for any undesirable noise.

Mixed layers of differing density and mass materials work better at absorbing noise than a solitary layer of one material type. The diverse materials will isolate different sound frequencies and offer a more rounded auditory experience and feeling to a room.
