It's important for us to learn how sound travels around an area before it's possible to discover solutions to stop it from occurring.

Soundproofing Willingdon East Sussex (BN20)

There basically two ways in which sound can be transmitted around a room:

1. Through the vibration of objects or materials.

2. By the vibration of air molecules.

Sound also travels through water, but unless you are looking at soundproofing an aquarium or swimming pool we'll only deal with its isolation via materials and air.

SOUND TRAVEL THROUGH THE AIR

If you glance around your area to be soundproofed and discover open air-ducting, ill fitted windows, gaps around doors and even light fittings and electrical sockets, these are all aspects that can cause the transmission of sound. What we hear as sound is in fact air molucules being vibrated and being picked up by our ear drum. It matters not whether it's aircraft, children playing, nearby traffic, machinery or music, they all produce and transmit sound in the same manner.

If you try to visualise your room as if it were a bucket, and you are trying to find any leaks to seal before you can fill it with water.

SOUND THROUGH OBJECTS AND STRUCTURES

We all know that sounds are just the vibrations of air reaching the ear, but those vibrations are also absorbed by solid materials. Sound can be transported around a property from its source via the vibration of walls, ceilings and floors. Care must be taken with solid concrete or brick walls, such as a basement, since sound can be reflected and sometimes even amplified to other areas of your home.

How can we prevent these vibrations and sounds from having an adverse effect on other people? Soundproofing is the answer.

SIMPLE STEPS IN SOUNDPROOFING

A bare floor resonates more than one covered with a rug or carpet. These soft coverings will help soak up noises but can also add a bit of elegance to a previously bare room. Curtains, and especially heavy blackout ones, will also subdue any sounds from escaping or invading a room, cost-effectively and without the need for specialist soundproofing.

Look for areas in the room where sound can escape or come in; door frames, electrical sockets, light fittings and windows, and close off the gaps or holes. Sealing the holes and gaps with a special acoustic sealant found in many DIY shops and builders merchants, will make a huge difference to how your room sounds. Acoustic sealants can be a little more expensive than normal plaster or other sealant products, but their unique soundproofing qualities far outweigh the additional cost.

If your room is a blank canvas and you are soundproofing while you decorate or renovate, think about putting up a layer of plasterboard or soundboard, (also called gyproc, sheet rock or drywall). This is an efficient and economical soundproofing material due to its dense nature. It is excellent if you're putting in a movie room, music studio or home office in your property in Willingdon. It is preferable to hire a competent Willingdon tradesman to install plasterboard unless you've some experience in this kind of work.

Soundproofer Quotes in Willingdon East Sussex

One last easy soundproofing treatment is to check the materials your doors are made of. If you have hollow doors in your rooms you'll discover they can resonate and vibrate with any sound that they experience. If you're able to change to solid doors you'll find it enhances your soundproofing at minimal extra cost.

Be ready to answer the following four questions during an initial evaluation of your soundproofing requirements:

  1. What are the specific sounds that need to soundproofed? i.e. Is it sounds from inside your home such as a music room or home cinema, or outside noises such as passing trains, noisy neighbours, street noise, etc.
  2. What is the main place where the noise causes the most problems? i.e. Is it coming through windows/doors, from the walls, down from overhead or up through the floors, or is it a mixture of all things.
  3. What type of room or property do you want to soundproof? Is it a plasterboarded partition wall, a brick wall or a lined concrete wall etc.
  4. How large is the space you wish to be soundproofed?

An experienced soundproofing company in Willingdon will look into all of these aspects to offer remedies for your sound issues for various budgets. There will be different remedies for each of the main key areas of the room you wish to soundproof.

PROFESSIONAL SOUNDPROOFING OF WALLS, FLOORS and CEILINGS

Two key components are needed to soundproof any type of room or space:

  1. Reduce the effects on the way sound is reflected off and transmitted through solid surfaces.
  2. Maximise sound absorption.

A site survey will be needed to examine the aspects that need improving.

A professional soundproofer will investigate the different methods for adding density and mass to the trouble spots. Soundproofing can be improved by the addition of acoustic foam, rubber and other materials which will absorb excess noise and improve and a room's sound quality.

Soundproofing Services Willingdon (BN20)

Voids between floor joists may need insulation to eliminate resonation gaps between them. If you picture such spaces like a drum or wooden cajon then you will see that by leaving wall cavities and floor or ceiling joist spaces open, you're creating a sound amplifying area.

Mixed layers of materials with different densities and masses do a better job of absorbing sound than a solitary layer of one material type. The different materials will reduce different sound frequencies and offer a more balanced feeling and auditory experience to a room.

All soundproofing installers in Willingdon must follow the regulations for residential properties laid out in the Building Regulations (Part E). Such legislation have to be followed so as to protect yourself and others from being negatively impacted by sound pollution.

Look out for companies showing the logos of the Association of Noise Consultants (ANC) or the Institute of Acoustics (IOA) to make certain you're dealing with a business that's knowledgable and fully qualified in the soundproofing industry. Only those Willingdon businesses that have been vetted and approved by these associations for professionalism, quality and reliability are permitted to display the logo.

AMW (Acoustic Mineral Wool)

Having several applications for your noise reduction needs, AMW (or acoustic mineral wool) is one of the handiest materials available for soundproofing properties in Willingdon. Acoustic mineral wool is designed specifically for installation in the cavity spaces of floors, walls and ceilings, to improve acoustic performance, reduce reverberation and absorb sound waves.

Acoustic Mineral Wool Willingdon

Coming in slabs of 600mm x 1200mm and 25mm, 50mm, 75mm and 100mm thicknesses, acoustic mineral wool is readily available from soundproofing stockists. Acoustic mineral wool is safe to use in your property in Willingdon, as it is chemically inert and and is non-flammable, it is also friendly to the environment being partly made from recycled materials. It won't encourage the development of bacteria, mould or fungi, nor does it have a reaction with any materials that it comes into close contact with (i.e. plastics, masonry, brickwork or metal wall ties).

AMW is especially effective as a sound absorbing filler when installed in the gaps between floor joists, suspended ceilings and stud partitioning, and is widely used in the construction industry for fire, acoustic and thermal insulation. When it comes to separating walls and floors, and in order to adhere to Part E of the Building Regulations, AMW can be used along with other acoustic materials.

Acoustic or Soundproofing Underlay Willingdon

If you would like to reduce the noise experienced in your home in Willingdon without causing excessive disturbance, you could think about installing some soundproofing underlay. Both concrete and timber floors are suitable surfaces for these acoustic underlays, and they can be installed beneath vinyl planks, carpet, laminate and engineered wood.

Soundproofing underlay is particularly effective when there's a problem with impact noise as opposed to airborne noise. The increased use of hard floor surface finishes means that impact noise has become an increasing issue for homeowners in Willingdon. The sort of noise we're talking about here is kids running around, general footfall and moving furniture, in particular from upstairs rooms.

Do not confuse regular carpet underlay with genuine soundproofing or acoustic underlay, because some carpet stockists might try to sell you such products, claiming that they are suitable substitutes. Be sure to invest in a quality soundproofing underlay, if you have significant noise problems.

Even though soundproofing underlay is an effective product for dealing with impact noise, some are much better than others when it comes to airborne noise issues such as blaring TV's, loud music and constant talking. Consequently, it is essential to specify the precise kinds of noise you are wanting to reduce before buying an underlay product, and talk to your supplier or soundproofing specialist about your particular situation.

Soundproofing Foam Willingdon

Just recently I thought that I would check out what people in Willingdon are searching for with regards to soundproofing, and it appears that when looking on Google and Yahoo one of the most commonly types in requests was for "soundproofing foam". And on a local basis searches include "soundproofing foam Willingdon". That is actually quite interesting, as it illustrates that Willingdon homeowners are under the impression that acoustic foam products are suitable for reducing their noise problems.

The last thing I am looking to do is rain on your parade, but if you are convinced that the din from your noisy next door neighbours in Willingdon can be blocked out with soundproofing foam, then you're on the wrong track.

The foam in the form of an "egg box" which you regularly see for sale in sheet or tile form isn't really meant for stopping the transmission of noise, but is really designed for use in music studios and similar settings, to reduce echoing and amplifying and improve the acoustic performance of a room. It's not effective in stopping sound from travelling around your house, or stopping noise from penetrating the wall of a neighbouring building. Rather than stopping it, acoustic foam allows sound to pass through it, because it is actually porous.

Nonetheless, if you happen to be engaged on creating a music room, this foam may be ideal for you, and can be obtained in various sheet sizes and different thicknesses (normally 25 millimetre and 50 millimetre).
