Soundproofer West Bridgford Nottinghamshire (NG2): If your West Bridgford home is being impacted by noise, maybe you should think about putting in some soundproofing to bring a new sense of tranquility to your lounge, home office, bedroom or studio. Alternatively you might want to soundproof a particular room to keep load noises in, for example in a home cinema or family room, to avoid disturbing others. Whichever soundproofing requirements are needed, it will be essential for you and your neighbour's peace of mind and sanity.
First it might help if we learn just how is transmitted and travels before we are able to find ways to eliminate any excessive noise intruding into or escaping from your property.
Sound can move in a couple of ways:
1. Around and within a solid object by reflection and vibration.
2. Through the air by vibration of air molecules.
Sound also travels through water, but unless you're planning to soundproof an aquarium or swimming pool we'll simply focus on the isolation through materials and air.
SOUND TRAVELLING THROUGH THE AIR
Sound can be transmitted out of and into a room through heating ducts, gaps around doors, ill fitting windows and even electrical switches and sockets. Any noise vibrates the molecules in the air and this vibration is what we identify and hear as sound. No matter the source of the sound; music playing, aeroplanes, heavy machinery, kids playing or road traffic, all sounds are generated and transmitted in exactly the same way.
Any gaps within a room can be looked at as a leak and will have to be blocked.
SOUND TRAVEL THROUGH STRUCTURES AND OBJECTS
As sound moves through the air by vibration, then it makes sense that this vibration can be absorbed by, transferred to or reflected by different solid materials. Sound can be moved around a building from its original source via the vibration of floors, ceilings and walls. Even in a room that is built from a solid material that's somewhat resistant to sound vibrations, such as a concrete basement, the sound can be reflected and even amplified to other areas of the dwelling.
But, how can these effects be prevented from creating an issue? The solution is naturally, soundproofing!
BASIC SOUNDPROOFING STEPS
Give some thought to covering bare floors, which reflect and resonate sound, with a rug or carpet. Such a simple solution can spruce up a room and help dampen down any noise at the same time. Curtains, particularly heavy blackout types, can also stifle any noises from escaping or invading the area, cost-effectively and without requiring specialist soundproofing.
Finding and sealing any gaps around the room, think doors, light fittings, windows and electrical sockets, is also a straightforward task for a competent do-it-yourselfer. You can find specialist acoustic sealants in many builders merchants that repress the transfer of sound by suppressing the sound waves. Acoustic sealants can be a bit more pricey than regular sealant products, however their remarkable soundproofing qualities far outweigh the extra cost.
If you're luckily enough to be redecorating or renovating while considering your soundproofing requirements, then think about putting up an additional skin of plasterboard (also known as sheet rock, drywall or gypsum board). This is a relatively dense type of boarding that's an economic and useful soundproofing material. It's terrific for areas such as home cinemas, studios or home offices that are being built within a property. It is advisable to hire a specialist West Bridgford tradesman to install plasterboard unless you are experienced in this task.
Lastly you ought to examine all doors in the area you're looking to soundproof. If you have hollow doors fitted to rooms you will discover that they can resonate and vibrate with any sound that is aimed at them. Solid core doors, while a bit more pricey, can do wonders for sound isolation in a room.
PROFESSIONAL SOUNDPROOFING WEST BRIDGFORD
If you reside in a high sound pollution area, such as near an airport or next to busy roads, you will need to be more aggressive in your endeavours to increase the soundproofing qualities of your property. This is an instance when the services of a specialist soundproofing installer will bring the best results.
Be ready to answer the following four questions during an investigation of your particular soundproofing requirements:
- How large is the space requiring soundproofing?
- What is the main area where the noise creates the most issues? i.e. Is it emanating through windows/doors, up through the flooring, down from above or from the walls, or is it a mix of all these factors.
- What space needs to be soundproofed? i.e. Is it a brick walled room, a concrete lined cellar, a stud partitioned room or a loft conversion.
- What noise or sounds are you trying to subdue? i.e. External things like trains, neighbours playing loud music, street noise etc, or internal sounds from a music studio or family room.
Your answers to such questions will allow you to receive quotations for the various available solutions to suit your circumstances. Solutions might vary in accordance with the different materials needed for each of the main trouble spots in your property.
PROFESSIONAL SOUNDPROOFING OF WALLS, FLOORS and CEILINGS
There are two areas that need to be addressed to successfully soundproof any space:
- Cut down on the ways that sound is reflected off and transmitted through solid surfaces.
- The absorption of sound will have to be improved.
This requires a site survey to find out precisely what areas require improving from the present condition.
Solutions identified by the survey will probably include the addition of materials with different densities to help maximise the soundproofing qualities of the space. Soundproofing can be enhanced by the installation of acoustic rubber and foam which absorbs sound waves and improves and a room's sound quality.
Insulation between any existing voids will be upgraded or improved to lessen the noise resonation and amplification of these "sound boxes". Wall cavities or flooring and ceiling voids can all be assimilated with a drum, where the space acts as an amplifying area for any undesired noise.
Soundproofing is enhanced if multiple layers of varying density materials are utilised, as opposed to installing a single kind of material. This is because different materials react better with different frequencies and will deliver a much better acoustic solution to your soundproofing.
The Building Regulations (Part E) focus on the soundproofing of domestic properties, and must be applied by any soundproofing specialist in West Bridgford. This set of regulations is a requirement in law to protect your neighbours and yourself from the negative effects of sound pollution in an area where folks live and work.
Look out for companies bearing the logos of the Institute of Acoustics (IOA) or the Association of Noise Consultants (ANC) to make sure you are using a business that is knowledgable and fully qualified in the soundproofing sector. Any West Bridgford contractor showing IOA or ANC accreditation has been vetted to make sure they provide the highest quality, reliability and standards of work within the industry.
