It is important to realise how sound travels around a building before it is possible to identify methods to prevent it from occurring.

Soundproofing Watchet Somerset (TA23)

Sound is able to move in only two ways:

1. The vibration or air molecules through the air.

2. Through the vibration of objects or materials.

Sound can also be transmitted through water, however unless you are thinking about soundproofing a pool or aquarium we'll only deal with the isolation through materials and air.


If you glance around the area or room to be soundproofed and discover ill fitting windows, gaps around doors, open air-ducting and even electrical switches and sockets, these are all aspects that can cause the transmission of sound. All noise and sound will create the vibration and movement of the molecules in the air, and it is this that we identify and hear. All sounds travel through the air in this same fashion; it does not matter if it's music playing, children playing, passing aircraft, machinery or busy traffic that creates the sound.

Any gaps within a room can be considered to be a leak and will need to be plugged.


Sound waves can additionally be absorbed by, reflected by or transferred to solid objects and structures. Sound will vibrate the floors, walls and ceilings of your rooms, and may lead to a resonation effect which is transferred beyond the area. Even if a room is encased in a solid material that is resistant against sound, such as a concrete basement, the sound can be transmitted and perhaps even amplified to other areas of the property.

So, how can we stop this resonation having an impact on others? Soundproofing obviously.


A bare floor surface is more resonant than one covered with a rug or carpet. Such a straightforward solution can enhance a room and help dampen down any noises to boot. Curtains, and particularly heavy blackout types, will also repress any noises from invading or escaping the area, cost-effectively and without requiring specialist soundproofing.

Locating and stopping up any gaps around the rooms, think doors, light fittings, electrical sockets and windows, is also an easy job for a competent DIY enthusiast. It is possible to buy specialist acoustic sealants in many builders merchants which repress the transfer of sound by suppressing the sound waves. They might be a bit more expensive than regular plaster or sealants, but they are worth it for their soundproofing efficiency.

For those of you who are renovating a property or redecorating a room, evaluate the soundproofing gains of adding another skin of plasterboard or soundboard, (also called sheet rock, drywall or gypsum board), whilst you are tackling this work. This is a fairly dense type of board that's an economic and useful soundproofing material. If you're putting in a studio, movie room or home office then plasterboard can help reduce sound transmission to and from that room, and can be decorated easily after installment. If you do choose plasterboard to aid your soundproofing it is advisable to bring in a professional fitter in Watchet, to get the maximum benefit from its installment.

Soundproofer Quotes in Watchet Somerset

One last simple soundproofing remedy is to look at the materials from which your doors are made. Even though hollow doors are lightweight and fairly affordable, their soundproofing characteristics aren't anything to write home about. Changing hollow doors for solid ones will improve the soundproofing characteristics of an area with only a small extra cost.


Some homes, for instance those on aircraft flight-paths or next to busy traffic routes, naturally have more sound pollution problems and will need other ways to deal with the predicament. You'll get the best possible soundproofing results by hiring the services of an experienced soundproofing company.

The first questions you can expect to be asked are:

  1. How big is the room requiring soundproofing?
  2. Which is the main area where the noise creates the biggest issues? i.e. Is it coming from the walls, through windows, up through the flooring or down from overhead, or is it a mix of all factors.
  3. What are the particular sounds that need to soundproofed? i.e. Is it sounds from inside your house such as a family room or teenagers bedroom, or external noises such as aircraft, street noise, next door neighbours, etc.
  4. What type of room or area do you want to soundproof? Is it a lined concrete wall, a brick wall or a plasterboarded partition wall etc.

With honest answers to these queries a good soundproofing specialist in Watchet will figure out solutions for your situation, and just as important, your spending budget. There will be distinct solutions for each of the main key areas of the room that you want to soundproof.


To soundproof any kind of room requires 2 key strategies:

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

To precisely assess the soundproofing areas that require improvement, an on-site survey needs to be conducted by a local soundproofing company.

The installer will look at ways to add materials with different densities and masses to boost the sound absorption capabilities of the area. Soundproofing can be improved by the installation of acoustic foam, rubber and other materials which will absorb soundwaves and enhance and a room's sound quality.

The insulation between any existing voids will be improved or upgraded to lessen the noise resonation and amplification of these "sound boxes". If you picture such spaces as similar to a drum then you can see that by leaving wall cavities and floor or ceiling joist spaces open, you're creating a noise amplification area.

It's better to use combined layers of different density materials to deaden unwanted noises than a solitary layer made of one sort of soundproofing material. This is because different frequencies are affected by different materials, therefore a range of layers, shapes and densities within your soundproofing armoury are needed.

All soundproofing providers in Watchet will be needing to follow the guidelines for residential properties set down in the Building Regulations (Part E). Such regulations must be adopted so as to protect yourself and neighbours from being negatively impacted by noise pollution.

Trade bodies in the soundproofing industry that offer qualifications, advice and training are the Association of Noise Consultants and the Institute of Acoustics. Any Watchet firm bearing IOA or ANC accreditation will have been appraised to make certain they provide the highest standards, quality and reliability of workmanship within the soundproofing industry.

Acoustic or Soundproofing Underlay Watchet

One of the least troublesome techniques for adding some soundproofing to your Watchet property is through the installation of acoustic underlay. Both concrete and wood floors are suitable surfaces for these acoustic underlays, and they can be laid beneath laminate, carpet, engineered wood and vinyl planks.

Essentially, soundproofing underlay can be an especially beneficial solution where your problem is mostly impact noise and not an airborne noise issue. The increased popularity of hard floor finishes means that impact noise has become an increasing issue for householders in Watchet. Such things as general foot traffic, children running around and moving furniture, are the form of noise we're talking about here.

You should not confuse soundproofing or acoustic underlay with regular carpet underlay, although some carpet stores may try to palm you off with this claiming it has good soundproofing attributes. If you are experiencing significant noise problems in your home in Watchet, go to a professional supplier and buy a decent soundproofing underlay that's appropriate for your particular needs.

While acoustic underlay is most effective for impact noise, some products are better than others when faced with airborne noise issues such as constant talking, booming televisions and loud music. You must discuss the exact sorts of noise you're wanting to reduce with the supplier or soundproofing specialist, and this should help you pick the right underlay product for your noise reduction goals.

Government Grants for Soundproofing

Soundproofing Foam Watchet

It appears from some basic keyphrase research that one of the most common searches on Google and Yahoo is for "soundproofing foam" and for home owners in Watchet, maybe "soundproofing foam Watchet". Now, that's rather interesting because this would indicate that local home owners are turning to acoustic foam as an answer to their noise problems in Watchet.

The last thing I am looking to do is be a bearer of bad tidings, but if you are convinced that the din from your noisy neighbours in Watchet can be significantly reduced with acoustic foam, you are on the wrong track.

The foam in the form of an "egg box" that you often see being sold in tile or sheet form isn't actually intended for stopping the transmission of noise, but was really developed for use in music studios and similar spaces, to reduce resonation and echoing and enhance the sound clarity in a room. This sort of soundproofing foam is not efficient at stopping sound from passing through a wall or preventing noise from travelling around the rooms of your property. Seeing as it is porous, acoustic foam absorbs sound and permits sound to pass through it, as opposed to blocking it.

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