Soundproofer Wednesfield West Midlands (WV11): If your home in Wednesfield is being impacted by noise, maybe you should look into installing some soundproofing to bring tranquillity to your bedroom, home office, studio or living room. In some instances you might be thinking about soundproofing so that you do not disturb other inhabitants from a home cinema, family room or music studio. Either way, soundproofing is vital for sanity and peace of mind.
Before we can discover techniques for eliminating sound pollution, we should understand how sound travels and is transmitted.
Sound basically travels in two ways around a room:
1. By vibration of solid materials and objects.
2. In open spaces by movement of air.
As whale and dolphin song shows, sound also penetrates long distance through water, however unless your intention is to soundproof an aquarium or pool we will just look at the strategies for soundproofing rooms and structures.
SOUND TRAVELLING THROUGH THE AIR
If you look around the room or area to be soundproofed and detect heating ducts, ill fitted windows, gaps around doors and even electrical sockets and light fittings, these are all causes of sound transmission. All sound vibrates the air molecules and these vibrations are what we identify and hear as sound. No matter the source of the sound; traffic, aeroplanes, heavy machinery, music playing or children playing, all sound is created and transferred in exactly the same way.
You must therefore imagine your room as a boat and inspect it carefully for leaks that need sealing before you can sail it.
SOUND THROUGH OBJECTS AND STRUCTURES
As sound moves through the air by vibration, then it makes perfect sense that this vibration can be absorbed by, reflected by or transferred to various solid materials. Sound can be moved around a building from its original source through the vibration of ceilings, floors and walls. Even a solid concrete room, such as a basement, can generate a resonance path which channels sound waves, and even amplify them, to other parts of a building.
So, what is the easiest way to stop this sound transmission affecting others? Soundproofing of course.
BASIC SOUNDPROOFING STEPS
If you have bare floorboards or floor surfaces, think about covering them with carpet or putting down a few rugs to help in reducing any sound reflections and vibrations. Not only can such a simple solution reduce your problem with noise, but it can also brighten up the room. Curtains, and in particular heavy blackout ones, can also suppress any noises from invading or escaping the area, cost-effectively and without the need for professional soundproofing.
Another economical and do-it-yourself remedy is to plug any gaps around light fittings, electrical sockets, door frames and windows. Plugging the holes and gaps with a special acoustic sealant found in many DIY and building material shops, can make a huge difference to how your room sounds. There might be a little difference in the price in comparison with a normal sealant, but the soundproofing capabilities are much better and will make a massive difference to a room.
If the room you are working on is an empty canvas and you are soundproofing as you decorate or renovate, look at installing a layer of soundboard or plasterboard, (also called gyproc, drywall or sheet rock). Plasterboard is a dense material that's both economical and efficient in soundproofing a room. It is perfect for spaces like studies, music studios or movie rooms being built within your house in Wednesfield. If you aren't familiar with fitting plasterboard and studding, it's better to use a professional Wednesfield contractor to guarantee you the optimal soundproofing gains from its installation.
One final simple soundproofing remedy is to examine the materials your doors are made of. Although hollow doors are lightweight and fairly inexpensive, their soundproofing qualities are not all that brilliant. Switching hollow core doors for solid core will enhance the soundproofing of a room with only a little more cost.
PROFESSIONAL SOUNDPROOFING SOLUTIONS WEDNESFIELD
If you reside in a high sound pollution area, such as near an airport or next to busy roads, you will have to be more innovative in your endeavours to enhance the soundproofing in your home. You'll obtain the best soundproofing outcome by using the expertise of an established soundproofing specialist.
They will ask the four following questions during a basic appraisal of your needs:
- Where is most of the noise pollution emanating from? The windows, walls, floor, ceiling or doors.
- What kind of room or area do you wish to soundproof? Does it have a brick wall, a lined concrete wall or a stud partition wall etc.
- How big is the area you wish to have soundproofed?
- Is it external sounds or internal noise that you want to address? i.e. To reduce noisy neighbours, traffic noise or aircraft, or is it from internally created sounds from a home cinema or music studio for example.
With honest answers to these queries a trustworthy soundproofing installer in Wednesfield will provide you with solutions to suit your situation, and just as important, your allotted budget. Remedies will vary in line with the different materials required for each of the main trouble spots within your property.
PROFESSIONAL SOUNDPROOFING OF WALLS, CEILINGS and FLOORS
There are two key areas that need to be dealt with to soundproof any space or room:
- Sound absorption will need to be maximised.
- Reduce sound the resonating and amplification of sound.
To precisely analyse the aspects that need to be improved, a site survey must be completed by a soundproofing specialist.
Solutions identified by the survey will probably include adding some materials with different densities and masses to help maximise the soundproofing properties of the room. Soundproofing can be boosted by the addition of acoustic foam, rubber and other materials which absorbs soundwaves and enhances and a room's sound quality.
Voids between joists may need insulation to remove resonation gaps between them. Floor and ceiling voids and wall cavities can all be likened to a drum, where the space inside acts like an amplification source for unwelcome sounds.
It is far better to use combined layers of different density materials to deaden unwanted noises than a solitary layer fabricated from one kind of material. The various materials will isolate different sound frequencies and offer a more sympathetic feeling and auditory experience to a room.
All soundproofing companies in Wednesfield have to follow the guidelines for domestic buildings specified by Part E of the Building Regulations. Part E of the Building Regulations is a legally binding requirement to protect yourself and neighbours from the negative effects of sound pollution in an environment where people work and live.
