First it will help if we discover exactly how sound travels before we can identify ways to reduce any loud noise getting into or out of your home.

Soundproofing Waterbeach Cambridgeshire (CB25)

There basically a couple of ways by which sound can move around a room:

1. Around and within a solid object by vibration and reflection.

2. The vibration or air molecules through the air.

Despite the fact that sound can also travel through water, unless you're eager to isolate sounds from an aquarium or pool, we will only be interested in how to soundproof rooms within a structure.


Any ill fitted windows, heating ducts, gaps around doors and even electrical sockets and light fittings can all affect the transmission of sound outside or into a room. Any noise vibrates the molecules in the air and these vibrations are what we hear as sound. Regardless of the source of the sound; music, machinery, traffic, passing aircraft or children playing, all sounds are generated and transferred in precisely the same way.

If you try to think of your room as a bucket, and you're trying to find any leaks to seal before you can fill it with water.


Sound waves can also be absorbed by, transferred to or reflected by solid objects and structures. Sound will vibrate the floors, ceilings and walls of your rooms, and can lead to a resonation effect that's transmitted outside of the area. Care has to be taken with brick or solid concrete walls, such as a cellar, as sound can be reflected and sometimes even amplified to other rooms in your property.

So, what is the easiest way to stop these sounds from affecting others? Soundproofing obviously.


If you have bare floors or floorboards, consider covering them with carpet or laying a few rugs to help reduce any sound reflections and vibrations. The rugs or other soft coverings will help absorb noises but can also add a touch of elegance to an otherwise bare room. Curtains, in particular substantial blackout types, will also subdue any noises from escaping or invading the area, economically and without requiring specialist soundproofing.

Finding and plugging any gaps or holes around the rooms, think sockets, windows, doors and light fittings, is also an easy job for a skilled DIY'er. You can find professional acoustic sealants in many building supply stores which suppress the transmission of sound by absorbing it. Acoustic sealants are inclined to be a touch more pricey than normal sealant products, however their outstanding soundproofing qualities far outweigh the extra cost.

If you're luckily enough to be renovating or redecorating while tackling your soundproofing, then look into installing an additional layer of plasterboard (also called sheet rock, drywall or gyproc). This is a relatively dense type of boarding that's an economic and useful soundproofing material. It's excellent if you are setting up a home office, movie room or studio in your house in Waterbeach. It is far better to hire a professional contractor near you to put up the plasterboard unless you've got experience in its application.

One last simple soundproofing treatment is to check the materials your doors are made of. If you've got hollow doors fitted to rooms you'll find that they can vibrate and will resonate any sound that they experience. Switching hollow core doors for solid core will enhance the soundproofing capabilities of an area with only a little more cost.


If the sound pollution is high in your area, because of heavy traffic on a busy road nearby, or aircraft passing overhead for instance, then more substantial ways to combat the excess noise will need to be explored. This is an instance when hiring the services of an established soundproofing company will bring the most effective results.

Be ready to answer the four following questions during an investigation of your specific soundproofing requirements:

  1. How large is the room you need to have soundproofed?
  2. What space needs to be soundproofed? i.e. Is it a brick walled room, a concrete lined basement, an attic conversion or a stud partitioned room.
  3. From what direction do the noises appear to be coming from? i.e. Through the walls, flooring, ceiling, windows or doors or a combination of all of them.
  4. What are the particular sounds that need to soundproofed? i.e. Is it outside noises such as overflying aircraft, next door neighbours, road noise etc, or is it from inside your home such as a home cinema or music room.

Your answers to such queries will allow you to get quotations for the various available solutions that match your needs. Remedies might vary according to the different materials required for each of the main trouble spots within your environment.


There are two areas that must be addressed to successfully soundproof any space:

  1. The absorption of sound will have to be enhanced.
  2. Lessen the effect of sound vibration, amplification and reflection by solid surfaces.

To precisely analyse the soundproofing areas that need to be improved, an on-site survey should be completed by a soundproofing specialist.

A specialist will investigate the different ways to add density and mass to the problem areas. The use of acoustic rubbers and foams of different mass and density will help to absorb noises and reduce transmission and reflection sources.

Insulation between any existing voids will be improved to lower the noise resonation and amplification of these "sound boxes". 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 are effectively creating a sound amplification area.

Soundproofing qualities are enhanced if different densities and materials are employed, as opposed to installing only one kind of material. This is because the different material densities react in different ways with varying frequencies and will deliver a much better resolution to your soundproofing.

Any soundproofing company in Waterbeach must adhere to the Part E of the Building Regulations, if dealing with a residential property. This regulation has the objective of protecting other residents in the immediate area from the impact and effect of sound pollution.

Trade organisations in the soundproofing sector who provide training, guidance and qualifications are the Institute of Acoustics and the Association of Noise Consultants. Any Waterbeach contractor displaying IOA or ANC accreditation has been vetted to make certain they offer the highest quality, standards and reliability of work within the industry.

Soundproofing or Acoustic Underlay Waterbeach

Adding an acoustic or soundproofing underlay is an effective way of adding some extra soundproofing to your house in Waterbeach without the need for any significant disruption. Both concrete and wood floors are suitable surfaces for these acoustic underlays, and they can be laid beneath laminate, carpet, vinyl planks and engineered wood.

Soundproofing underlay is especially effective where there's an issue with impact noise rather than airborne noise. Nowadays, the increased popularity of "harder" floor finishes has triggered more complaints about impact noise in lots of Waterbeach homes. The kind of noise issues that we are talking about here is shifting furniture, general footfall and children stomping around, particularly from rooms upstairs.

You should not get soundproofing underlay confused with standard carpet underlay, although some carpet suppliers might try to palm you off with this claiming it has decent soundproofing benefits. If you've got real problems with noise be sure to invest in a decent soundproofing underlay.

Although it's a valuable product with regard to impact noise, acoustic underlay has varying levels of success when it comes to dealing with airborne noise problems like blaring TV's, shouting and loud music, and some products are definitely superior to others. Talking about the specific sorts of noise you're striving to minimise with your supplier or soundproofing specialist is vital, and this will help you pick out the correct product for your needs.

Soundproofing Foam Waterbeach

It seems from doing some elementary keyword research that a popular search on Google and Bing is for "soundproofing foam" and for local property owners, "soundproofing foam Waterbeach". This is somewhat puzzling, because it implies a basic lack of understanding by local property owners who seem to be of the belief that their noise pollution issues can be solved with acoustic foam.

I'm not trying to rain on your parade, but the simple truth is that soundproofing foam is not going to be the answer you're searching for, and will definitely not block out the racket caused by your noisy neighbours in Waterbeach.

Stopping the transmission of noise isn't actually the function of this familiar "egg box" style foam, which was in fact created for use in music studios and similar settings, where it can enhance the sound clarity in a room, and reduce echoing, amplification and reverberation. It isn't the right material preventing noise from travelling around your house, or preventing sound from penetrating a wall from a neighbouring property. Acoustic foam is porous and does not block sound, it absorbs it and actually lets sound pass through it.

However, if you are working on creating a music room, this foam could be useful for you, and can be obtained in different sheet sizes and various thicknesses (typically 25 millimetre and 50 millimetre).
