Soundproofer Whitchurch Shropshire (SY13): If your Whitchurch home is being adversely affected by noise, perhaps you should think about installing or upgrading your soundproofing to bring tranquillity to your bedroom, lounge, studio or home office. Alternatively you may wish to soundproof a room to keep load noises in, such as in a home cinema or family room, so that others aren't disturbed. Whatever your requirements are, soundproofing will help to maintain your peace of mind.
It is crucial to realise how sound travels around a building before it is possible to discover methods to prevent it from happening.
There basically a couple of ways by which sound can be transmitted around a room:
1. Through the air by vibration of air molecules.
2. Within and around a solid object by vibration and reflection.
As dolphin and whale song demonstrates, sound also travels through water, however unless you wish to soundproof an aquarium or swimming pool we will just look at the techniques of soundproofing structures and rooms.
SOUND TRAVEL THROUGH THE AIR
If you check out the room to be soundproofed and detect gaps around doors, heating ducts, ill fitted windows and even electrical sockets and switches, these are all causes of sound transmission. Any noise vibrates the molecules in the air and this vibration is what we hear and identify as sound. Regardless of the source of the noise; passing aircraft, music, busy traffic, heavy machinery or children playing, all sounds are created and transmitted in exactly the same way.
You should therefore imagine your room as a boat and carefully inspect it for leaks that need sealing before you can sail it.
SOUND TRAVELLING THROUGH OBJECTS AND STRUCTURES
If sound moves through the air by vibrations, then it makes perfect sense that such vibrations can be reflected by, transferred to or absorbed by different solid materials. The floors, ceilings and walls will all affect how sound moves around an area, and may even transport that vibration to other parts of a dwelling. Even a room made from solid concrete, such as a basement, can generate a path of resonance which transports sound waves, and sometimes amplify them, to other rooms in a building.
How can we prevent these vibrations and sounds affecting other folks? Soundproofing is the answer.
SIMPLE SOUNDPROOFING STEPS
Think about covering a bare floor, which reflects and resonates sound, with a carpet or rug. Such a simple solution can help to damp down any noise and spruce up the room at the same time. Curtains, in particular heavy blackout styles, will also repress any noises from invading or escaping the area, cost-effectively and without requiring professional installation.
Track down areas around the rooms where sound can come in or escape from; doors, light fittings, windows and sockets, and stop up the gaps. Stopping up the gaps and holes with a specialist acoustic sealant found in many DIY outlets and builders merchants, can make a massive difference to how your room sounds. They may be a little more expensive than normal plaster or sealants, but they're worthwhile for their soundproofing qualities.
If your room is a blank canvas and you're soundproofing while you decorate or renovate, look at putting up another skin of plasterboard or soundboard, (also called sheet rock, gypsum board or drywall). This is a dense board that is a perfect and economic soundproofing material. If you are fitting a studio, cinema room or study then plasterboard can help reduce sound transmission from and to that room, and can be decorated easily after installation. If you do decide to use plasterboard to help with your soundproofing exploits it is a good idea to use a specialist fitter in Whitchurch, to get the maximum effect from its installation.
Last but not least you need to examine all doors in the room that you're soundproofing. If you've got hollow doors in your rooms you'll discover they can vibrate and will resonate any sound that they experience. If you're able to change to solid core doors you will find it enhances your soundproofing at very little extra cost.
PROFESSIONAL SOUNDPROOFING WHITCHURCH
If you live in a high noise pollution location, such as next to a busy road or near an airport, you'll have to be more radical in how to boost the soundproofing qualities of your house. This is an instance when the services of an experienced soundproofing contractor will deliver the most effective results.
The initial questions you can expect to be asked are:
- What is the area you wish to soundproof made from? (i.e. a brick wall, a fully lined concrete wall or a plasterboarded partition wall).
- From which direction does the sound seem to be coming? i.e. Through the ceiling, floor, walls, windows or doors or a mixture of all of these.
- What noise or sounds are you wanting to suppress? i.e. External factors like noisy neighbours, street noise, aircraft etc, or sounds inside your home from a music studio or home cinema.
- How big is the room that you wish to be soundproofed?
With answers to these questions a decent soundproofing company in Whitchurch will provide you with solutions to suit your situation, and just as importantly, your allotted budget. There'll be different solutions for each of the main key areas of the space that you want to soundproof.
PROFESSIONAL SOUNDPROOFING OF WALLS, CEILINGS and FLOORS
There are 2 areas that need to be addressed to soundproof any space:
- Increase sound absorption.
- Reduce sound amplifying and resonating.
To precisely assess the areas that need to be improved, an on-site survey should be conducted by a local soundproofing company.
Solutions identified by the survey will include adding some materials of different densities and masses to help improve the soundproofing qualities of the area. This additional mass will include ways to enhance the absorption of noise by means of acoustic rubber or foam to achieve the maximum sound reduction impacts.
Any noticeable voids in the area may need some form of deadening material to be placed between them to reduce sound resonation. If you visualise such spaces like a drum then you'll appreciate that by leaving floor or ceiling joist spaces and wall cavities open, you are effectively creating a noise amplification area.
Soundproofing is enhanced if multiple layers of varying density materials are utilised, as opposed to installing a single type of material. The various materials will reduce different noise frequencies and offer a more harmonious feeling and auditory experience to a room.
The Building Regulations (Part E) cover the soundproofing of domestic properties, and will need to be adhered to by any soundproofing service in Whitchurch. These regulations have the objective of protecting other residents in the immediate area from the impacts of sound pollution.
