First of all it might help if we appreciate exactly how sound travels before we can find ways to eliminate any loud noise getting into or out of your property.

Soundproofing Wells Somerset (BA5)

Sound is able to move in two different ways:

1. By vibration of solid materials and structures.

2. The vibration or air molecules through the air.

Sound also travels through water, however unless you are thinking about soundproofing an aquarium or pool we'll just consider its isolation through materials and air.

SOUND TRAVEL THROUGH THE AIR

Any open ducting, gaps around doors, single glazed windows and even electrical sockets and light fittings can all be methods of transmission of sound into or outside a room. What we identify and hear as sound is actually the vibration of air molecules being picked up by our ear drum. All sounds travel through the air in the same manner; it does not matter if it's machinery, music, aeroplanes, busy traffic or kids playing that generates the sound.

You must therefore visualise a room as a boat and carefully inspect it for leaks before sailing off into the sunset.

SOUND TRAVEL THROUGH OBJECTS AND STRUCTURES

Sound waves can also be transferred to, reflected by or absorbed by solid materials and structures. Sound will vibrate the walls, floors and ceilings of your rooms, and can cause a resonating effect that is transmitted outside the area. Care should be taken with brick or solid concrete walls, such as a cellar or basement, since sound can be reflected and amplified to other parts of your home.

So, how can we stop this sound transference from affecting other people? Soundproofing of course.

SIMPLE SOUNDPROOFING STEPS

Give some thought to covering a bare floor, which reflects and resonates sound, with a carpet or rug. These soft coverings will help soak up sounds but can also add a touch of elegance to an otherwise bare room. Window drapes and wall coverings can also be employed to boost soundproofing and are simple to install and maintain.

Locating and stopping up any gaps or holes around the room, think doors, sockets, light fittings and windows, is also a straightforward task for a competent do-it-yourselfer. There are some special acoustic sealants available on the market which absorb the sound waves, and do not transmit them to surrounding materials. They may be a tad more pricey than regular plaster or sealants, but they're very useful for their soundproofing qualities.

For those of you who are renovating a property or redecorating a room, evaluate the soundproofing benefits of adding a supplementary layer of plasterboard or soundboard, (also known as gypsum board, drywall or sheet rock), whilst you are tackling the work. This is an economic and efficient soundproofing material due to its dense nature. It's great for areas such as home offices, studios or home cinemas being built within your house in Wells. It is advisable to hire a competent contractor near you to install plasterboard unless you've got experience in its application.

One last simple soundproofing option is to examine the materials from which your doors are made. Whilst hollow doors are light and comparatively affordable, their soundproofing attributes aren't anything to write home about. Solid core doors, while a tad more pricey, can have a considerable effect on the soundproofing capabilities of a room.

Be prepared to answer the four following questions during an initial analysis of your soundproofing requirements:

  1. Is it external sounds or internal noise that you wish to tackle? i.e. To reduce traffic, overflying aircraft or noisy neighbours, or is it from internally produced sounds from a home cinema or teenagers bedroom for instance.
  2. What's the size of the room or area that needs to be soundproofed?
  3. What is the main spot where the sound creates the biggest problems? i.e. Is it emanating up through the flooring, from the walls, through windows or down from above, or is it a mix of all these things.
  4. What type of area or room do you want to soundproof? Does it have a plasterboarded partition wall, a brick wall or a lined concrete wall etc.

With accurate answers to these questions a good soundproofing company in Wells will offer you solutions for your situation, and just as importantly, your budget. Remedies will vary according to the different materials needed for each of the main trouble spots within your environment.

PROFESSIONAL SOUNDPROOFING OF CEILINGS, FLOORS and WALLS

There are two areas that need to be addressed to soundproof any room:

  1. Lower the effect of sound reflection, vibration and amplification by hard surfaces.
  2. The absorption of sound needs to be increased.

An on-site survey is going to be needed to look at the areas that need improving.

A professional will investigate the different ways to add density and mass to the troublesome areas. The use of acoustic foams and rubbers of varying mass and density will help to absorb sounds and reduce transmission and reflection sources.

Voids between joists might need insulating to eliminate the resonating space between them. If you think of a drum for instance, you're looking at a noise amplifying void enclosed within a resonating material; fundamentally what you may encounter within ceiling and floor joists, or wall cavities.

Combined layers of materials with different masses and densities work better at absorbing noise than a solitary layer of one material type. This is because the different material densities react in different ways with various frequencies and will provide a much better overall resolution to your soundproofing exploits.

All soundproofing providers in Wells need to follow the requirements for residential properties laid out in Part E of the Building Regulations. Part E of the Building Regulations is a requirement in law to protect yourself and neighbours from the effects of noise pollution in an area where people work and live.
