First it would be advantageous to appreciate precisely how is transmitted and travels before we can identify ways to reduce any excessive noise intruding into or escaping from your home.

Soundproofing Warrington Cheshire (WA1)

Sound can travel in only two ways:

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

2. By the vibration of air molecules.

As dolphin and whale songs can show, sound also travels long distances through water, but unless your aim is to soundproof a pool or aquarium we'll just look at the strategies for soundproofing buildings and rooms.

SOUND TRAVELLING THROUGH THE AIR

If you look around the room to be soundproofed and notice ill fitted windows, heating ducts, gaps around doors and even electrical sockets and light fittings, these are all causes of sound transmission. All noise vibrates the air molecules and these vibrations are what we hear and identify as sound. It doesn't matter whether it's children playing, music playing, aeroplanes, nearby traffic or heavy machinery, they all create and transfer sound in the same way.

If you can think of your room as if it were a bucket, you are trying to identify any leaks which need sealing before you can fill it up with liquid.

SOUND TRAVEL THROUGH OBJECTS AND STRUCTURES

As sound travels through the air by vibrations, then it seems reasonable to assume that those vibrations can be transferred to, reflected by or absorbed by various solid materials. The floors, walls and ceilings will all have an effect on how sound travels around a room, and may even transport those vibrations to other parts of a dwelling. Even in a room that is built from a dense material that's resistant against sound, such as a concrete lined basement, the sound can be transmitted and possibly even amplified to other rooms in the dwelling.

So, how can we stop these sound vibrations having an impact on others? Soundproofing of course.

SIMPLE SOUNDPROOFING STEPS

Think about covering bare floors, which reflect and resonate sound, with a carpet or rug. The rugs or other soft coverings will help to soak up noise and can also add a touch of style to an otherwise bare room. Hanging wall coverings and curtains can also avoid sound reflections and vibrations through walls and windows without the need for a team of professional soundproofers.

Look for areas in the room where noise can escape or come in; windows, light fittings, door frames and sockets, and seal the gaps or holes. Sealing the gaps and holes with a specialist acoustic sealant that can be purchased in some DIY and building material shops, can make a huge difference to sound transmission in your room. Acoustic sealants are inclined to be a bit more expensive than normal plaster or other sealant products, however the special design has far greater soundproofing performance and is worth the small extra cost.

For those of you who are redecorating a room or renovating a property, look at the soundproofing properties of adding a supplementary layer of soundboard or plasterboard, (also known as gyproc, sheet rock or drywall), whilst you are undertaking this project. This is an efficient and economical soundproofing material owing to its dense nature. It's perfect for spaces like home offices, home cinemas or studios being built within your house in Warrington. It is better to hire a professional Warrington tradesman to install plasterboard unless you're experienced in this task.

  1. What noise or sounds are you trying to eliminate? i.e. External issues like passing trains, traffic noise, noisy neighbours etc, or internal sounds from a music studio or home cinema.
  2. How large is the space you want to have soundproofed?
  3. Where is the majority of the noise pollution coming from? The walls, ceiling, doors, windows or floor.
  4. What area needs to be soundproofed? i.e. Is it a concrete lined basement, a stud partitioned room, a loft conversion or a brick walled room.

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

  1. Sound absorption needs to be improved.
  2. Minimise sound amplifying and reverberation.

This will require an on-site survey to find out precisely what areas require improving from the present state.

The team will figure out ways to add materials that have different masses and densities to enhance the sound absorption qualities of the area. This additional mass will help to enhance absorption of the sound energy through the use of acoustic rubber or foam to gain the maximum impact of sound reduction.

Voids between floor joists may need insulation to eliminate the resonating space between them. Wall cavities or flooring and ceiling voids can all be assimilated with a drum, where the space acts like an amplification source for unwanted noise.

Mixed layers of differing density and mass materials do a better job of absorbing sound than a solitary layer of one material type. This is due to the fact that different frequencies are affected by different materials, therefore a diversity of shapes, layers and densities within your soundproofing panels are needed for the best results.
