Warsop Soundproofing & Noise Reduction Services

Soundproofer Warsop Nottinghamshire (NG20): If noise is causing problems in your Warsop property then it might be time to consider some soundproofing to make your bedroom, lounge, home office or studio a retreat of peace and quiet from your neighbours, fellow occupants and the outside world. You may also be aware of noise from a family room or home cinema room seeping out and causing a disturbance to others. Either way, soundproofing is important for peace of mind.

It's important to realise how sound travels and is transmitted around an area before it's possible to find solutions to stop it from occurring.

Soundproofing Warsop Nottinghamshire (NG20)

Sound basically travels in two ways throughout your home:

1. Through the air by vibration of air molecules.

2. By vibration of solid materials and structures.

As whale and dolphin song shows, sound also penetrates long distance through water, however unless you wish to soundproof an aquarium or swimming pool we'll look only at the techniques of soundproofing structures and rooms.

SOUND TRAVELLING THROUGH THE AIR

If you glance around the area or room to be soundproofed and detect ill fitting windows, gaps around doors, heating ducts and even electrical sockets and switches, these are all aspects that can cause the transmission of sound. All noise and sound will create movement and vibration of the molecules in the air, and this is what we identify and hear. No matter what the source of the sound; music playing, heavy machinery, kids playing, traffic or aeroplanes, all sound is produced and transferred in precisely the same way.

If you try and think of your room as if it were a bucket, you're attempting to find any leaks that need sealing before you fill it with water.

SOUND THROUGH STRUCTURES AND OBJECTS

We now appreciate that sound is just the vibrations of air reaching the ear, however those vibrations are also reflected by or transferred to solid materials. The floors, ceilings and walls will all affect how sound moves around a room, and may even transport that vibration to other areas of a building. Even in a room that is encased in a dense material which is somewhat resistant to sound vibrations, such as a concrete lined cellar, the sound can sometimes be reflected and maybe even amplified to other areas of the property.

How can we prevent these sounds and vibrations affecting other folks? Soundproofing is the answer.

BASIC STEPS IN SOUNDPROOFING

Give some thought to covering bare floors, which resonate and reflect sound, with a carpet or rug. Such a simple solution can enhance a room and help to dampen down any noises to boot. Curtains, especially heavy blackout ones, can also suppress any noises from invading or escaping the area, economically and without the need for specialist soundproofing.

Finding and sealing any holes or gaps in the room, think windows, electrical sockets, light fittings and door frames, is also an easy job for a skilled do-it-yourselfer. It is possible to buy specialist acoustic sealants in many DIY stores that suppress the transfer of sound by suppressing the sound waves. They might be somewhat more expensive than regular plaster or sealants, but they are worth every penny for their soundproofing efficiency.

If the room you are working on is a blank canvas and you're soundproofing as you decorate or renovate, consider putting up a skin of soundboard or plasterboard, (also known as drywall, gyproc or sheet rock). Plasterboard is a dense material that is both effective and economical for soundproofing purposes. It's superb if you are putting in a games room, home office or movie room in your home in Warsop. It's best to hire a professional Warsop tradesman to fit the plasterboard unless you've got some experience in this sort of work.

Soundproofer Quotes in Warsop Nottinghamshire

One final simple soundproofing treatment is to look at the materials from which your doors are made. If you have hollow doors installed in your rooms you'll discover that they can vibrate with any sound that they experience. If you are able to change to solid core doors you will discover that it enhances your room's soundproofing more cheaply than some other solutions.

PROFESSIONAL SOUNDPROOFING SOLUTIONS WARSOP

If the sound levels are excessive in your location, due to aircraft passing overhead, or traffic noise from a nearby road for example, then more substantial ways to reduce the excess noise will need to be investigated. You will get the best soundproofing outcome by retaining the expertise of a certified soundproofing specialist.

Soundproofer Near Warsop Nottinghamshire

Be ready to answer the following four questions during a survey of your specific soundproofing needs:

  1. What sounds or noise are you seeking to subdue? i.e. External issues such as road noise, aircraft, next door neighbours etc, or sounds within your house from a teenagers bedroom or family room.
  2. How large is the space that you need to have soundproofed?
  3. What space needs to be soundproofed? i.e. Is it a concrete lined cellar, an attic conversion, a brick walled room or a plasterboard partition room.
  4. Where is most of the noise pollution emanating from? The ceiling, floor, doors, walls or windows.

With honest answers to these queries a decent soundproofing company in Warsop will be able to supply you with solutions for your situation, and just as important, your spending budget. The parts of your room that are causing the biggest problems may each need different solutions.

PROFESSIONAL SOUNDPROOFING OF WALLS, CEILINGS and FLOORS

There are 2 key areas that must be addressed to successfully soundproof any room:

  1. Reduce the effect of sound vibration, reflection and amplification by hard surfaces.
  2. The absorption of sound will have to be improved.

Doing this requires a site survey to see what areas need developing from the present condition.

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

Soundproofing Services Warsop (NG20)

Voids between floor joists may require insulating 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 undesirable sounds.

Combined layers of differing mass and density materials do a better job of absorbing sound than a single layer of one material type. This is due to the fact that different frequencies are affected by different materials, therefore a variety of densities, shapes and layers within your soundproofing armoury are needed.

Part E of the Building Regulations deal with the soundproofing of residential properties, and will need to be observed by any soundproofing installer in Warsop. These regulations have the aim of protecting neighbours and other residents in the area from the impacts of sound pollution.

Trade bodies in the soundproofing sector who provide guidance, qualifications and training are the Institute of Acoustics and the Association of Noise Consultants.

Soundproofing Foam Warsop

I was intrigued to learn quite recently that a common search phrase typed into Google and Yahoo was "soundproofing foam", and local searches included things like "soundproofing foam Warsop" and "acoustic foam Warsop". That is actually quite worrying, because it would suggest that Warsop householders are under the impression that soundproofing foam products are suitable for resolving their noise problems.

I don't want to be a bearer of bad tidings, but soundproofing foam isn't really the answer to most noise pollution issues, and is certainly not effective if you are looking to block out the racket from noisy neighbours in Warsop.

Often sold in tile or sheet form, this "egg box" style foam that you sometimes see on sale is not really designed for blocking out noise, but was actually created to be used in music studios and similar surroundings, to enhance the sound clarity in a room, and help to reduce resonation and echoing. It isn't effective in stopping noise from moving around your house, or stopping sound from penetrating the wall of a neighbouring building. As it's porous, soundproofing foam absorbs sound and lets sound pass through, rather than stopping it.

If however, you are creating a music studio, this might be a valuable product for you to use, and can be found in various thicknesses (typically 25mm and 50mm), and in different sheet and tile sizes.

Acoustic Mineral Wool (AMW)

Acoustic mineral wool (AMW) is one of the most useful products available for the soundproofing of houses in Warsop and has several applications for your noise reduction requirements. Acoustic grade mineral wool is designed specifically for installation in the cavity spaces of walls, ceilings and floors, to improve acoustic performance, dampen vibration and absorb airborne sound.

Acoustic Mineral Wool Warsop

Readily available in thicknesses of 25 millimetres, 50 millimetres, 75 millimetres and 100 millimetres, acoustic mineral wool normally comes in 1200mm x 600mm slabs. Often partly made with recycled raw materials, acoustic mineral wool is chemically inert, and is non-combustible. It does not encourage the growth of bacteria, fungi or mould, nor does it react with any materials that it comes into contact with (i.e. metal wall ties, masonry, brickwork or plastics).

When utilised as a sound absorption filler between stud partitioning, floor joists and suspended ceilings, acoustic mineral wool is particularly effective, and it's recognised in the construction industry for its fire, acoustic and thermal insulation properties. To comply with Part E of the Building Regulations in relation to separating walls and floors, AMW can be used in conjunction with other acoustic products.

Grants for Soundproofing

Soundproofing Grants Warsop

In the past there have been grants available for assistance with soundproofing in areas with excess noise pollution. Until March 2020, grants were offered by the Highways Agency for the soundproofing of homes if they were in particular areas that are affected by road noise. Before you commence any soundproofing project in Warsop it might be a good idea to look through the Government portal for any grants and compensation schemes that may be available in the Warsop area.

Soundproofing Underlay Warsop

If you're experiencing a lot of noise in your Warsop home, a great way to reduce this without too much disruption is by installing some soundproofing underlay on your floors. Both concrete and timber floors are suitable surfaces for these acoustic underlays, and they can be installed under vinyl planks, laminate, engineered wood and carpet.

Basically, soundproofing underlay can be an especially helpful remedy when your issue is not so much airborne noise but primarily an impact noise problem. An increase in the popularity of hard floor finishes in Warsop homes, means issues with impact noise are becoming ever more widespread. Activities like shifting furniture, kids running around and general footfall, are the form of noise that we are talking about here.

You should not confuse soundproofing underlay with ordinary carpet underlay, although some carpet companies may try to sell you this with claims of soundproofing benefits. If the noise problems you are experiencing are significant, ensure that you buy a good quality acoustic underlay from a professional vendor.

Whilst impact noise can be substantially lowered with soundproofing underlays, they have varying degrees of success when it comes to shouting, deafening music and booming TV's, and other airborne noise issues. Therefore, it's vital to ascertain the precise kinds of noise you are hoping to minimise before choosing an underlay product, and talk to the soundproofing specialist or supplier about your particular circumstances.
