It's crucial for us to learn how sound travels and is transmitted around a structure before it's possible to identify techniques to stop it from happening.

Soundproofing Wincanton Somerset (BA9)

There basically two ways by which sound can travel around a home:

1. The vibration or air molecules through the air.

2. By vibration of solid materials and structures.

Despite the fact that sound also travels through liquids, unless you are wanting to reduce noise from a pool or aquarium, we will just be concerned with how to reduce sound levels in rooms within a building.


Sounds can be transferred out of and into a room through gaps around doors, open air-ducting, ill fitting windows and even electrical sockets and light fittings. All sounds and noise will create the vibration and movement of the air molecules, and it is this that we hear. It does not matter if it's busy traffic, aircraft, children playing, music or machinery, they all generate and transfer sound in the same manner.

If you can visualise your room as if it were a bucket, you're attempting to find any leaks to seal before you can fill it up with liquid.


We all know that sound is simply the vibrations of air being picked up by the ear, however those vibrations are also transferred to solid materials. Sound can be moved around a dwelling from its source through the vibration of ceilings, walls and floors. Care has to be taken with brick or solid concrete walls, such as a cellar or basement, since sound can be reflected and sometimes even amplified to other areas of your home.

However, how can these effects be prevented from causing a problem? The answer is not surprisingly, soundproofing!


Think about covering bare floors, which reflect and resonate sound, with a rug or carpet. These soft coverings will help absorb noises but can also add a bit of style to a previously bare room. Curtains, particularly substantial blackout types, will also repress any sounds from escaping or invading the area, economically and without requiring professional soundproofing.

Another economical and do-it-yourself solution is to plug any gaps around electrical sockets, light fittings, windows and doors. Stopping up the gaps and holes with an acoustic sealant that can be purchased in some DIY and building material shops, will make a big difference to sound transmission in your room. They might be somewhat more pricey than regular plaster or sealants, but they are worthwhile for their soundproofing efficiency.

If your room is a blank canvas and you're soundproofing while you renovate or decorate, look at putting up a skin of soundboard or plasterboard, (also known as sheet rock, gyproc or drywall). This is an economic and efficient soundproofing material because of its dense nature. It's great for areas like music studios, home cinemas or studies which are being built within a property. If you aren't familiar with putting up studding and plasterboard, it is generally better to hire a specialist team to guarantee the best soundproofing results from its installation.

Lastly you need to examine all doors in the rooms that you're soundproofing. Hollow doors are a comparatively cheap option but their soundproofing qualities are far from the best. Solid wood doors, while a little more pricey, can have a substantial effect on the soundproofing qualities of a room.


If you happen to live in a high sound pollution area, such as next to a busy road or near an airport, you'll have to be more creative in how to boost the soundproofing qualities of your house. You'll obtain the very best soundproofing outcome by using the services of an established soundproofing company.

Soundproofer Near Wincanton Somerset

They should ask the following four questions during the initial evaluation of your needs:

  1. Where is the primary source of sound emanating from? i.e. Above, through the floors, windows, doors, ceiling or walls, or a combination.
  2. What are the dimensions of the room or area that must be soundproofed?
  3. What is the room you wish to soundproof made from? (i.e. a plasterboarded partition wall, a brick wall or a fully lined concrete wall).
  4. What sounds or noise are you looking to reduce? i.e. External issues like traffic noise, neighbours, aircraft etc, or sounds inside your property from a home cinema or music room.

With honest answers to these queries a decent soundproofing firm in Wincanton will provide you with solutions to suit your circumstances, and just as importantly, your spending budget. They will provide different strategies to soundproof each of the problem areas within your room.


There are two areas that must be addressed to soundproof any room or space:

  1. Increase and maximise the level of sound absorption.
  2. Minimise sound amplifying and resonating.

A site survey is going to be needed to assess the aspects that need improving.

The experts will look at ways of adding materials with different densities and masses to increase the sound absorption properties of the area. This additional mass will include ways to enhance absorption of the sound energy by means of acoustic rubber or foam to achieve the maximum noise reduction impacts.

The insulation between any voids will be improved to lessen the noise amplification and resonation of these "sound boxes". If you think about a drum for example, you're looking at a noise amplifying void surrounded by a resonating material; basically what you may find inside ceiling and floor joists, or cavities in walls.

It's better to use mixed layers of different densities to deaden unwelcome sounds than a single layer made of one sort of soundproofing material. This is due to the fact that the different material densities react better with different frequencies and will provide a much better resolution to your soundproofing.

The Building Regulations (Part E) regulate the soundproofing of domestic properties, and will have to be applied by any installation company in Wincanton. These regulations have the aim of protecting neighbours and other residents in the area from the effects of noise pollution.

Trade organisations in the soundproofing sector who provide training, guidance and qualifications are the Institute of Acoustics and the Association of Noise Consultants. Any Wincanton firm bearing IOA or ANC accreditation has been appraised to make certain they offer the highest quality, reliability and standards of workmanship within the soundproofing industry.

Soundproofing Foam Wincanton

It seems from doing some elementary keyword research that a frequent search on Google and Bing is for "soundproofing foam" and for householders in Wincanton, possibly "soundproofing foam Wincanton". This is rather perplexing, as it indicates a lack of understanding by local property owners who seem to be of the belief that their noise problems can be resolved through the use of acoustic foam.

It isn't my intention to spoil anyone's day, but most noise related issues can't be helped by acoustic foam, and if you are aiming to block out the racket caused by noisy neighbours in Wincanton, you'll have to look someplace else.

The customary "egg box" style foam, that often seems to be the trademark of soundproofing, is not actually designed for blocking out noise, but is meant for the reduction of reverberation and echoing in music studios and similar settings, where it can also enhance the sound clarity in a room. This kind of soundproofing foam isn't efficient at preventing noise from penetrating a neighbours wall, or stopping sound from moving freely around the rooms of your home. Because it is porous, acoustic foam absorbs sound and permits sound to pass through it, rather than stopping it.

This material might however be handy for you if you have a music studio in your house in Wincanton, and if this is the case you'll find that it is available in different thicknesses and sheet sizes.

Soundproofing or Acoustic Underlay Wincanton

If you'd like to minimise the noise you experience in your Wincanton home without causing excessive disruption, you could consider installing some soundproofing or acoustic underlay. These acoustic underlays can be used on both wood and concrete floors, and underneath engineered wood, laminate, vinyl planks and carpet floor coverings.

Where there is an issue with impact noise rather than airborne noise, soundproofing underlay is especially effective. Impact noise has become a common problem for Wincanton householders these days, with an increase in hard floor finishes. This is particularly problematic when coming from rooms upstairs, and the kind of noise issues we are talking about here is shifting furniture, general footfall and children running around.

Do not confuse regular carpet underlay with authentic soundproofing underlay, as some carpet retailers may try to sell you such products, with claims that they are suitable substitutes. If the noise problems you are experiencing are severe, be sure you invest in a decent soundproofing underlay from a professional supplier.

Even though soundproofing underlay is an effective product for dealing with impact noise, some are far better than others with regards to airborne noise issues like shouting, loud music and blaring TV's. Talking about the precise types of noise you are trying to lower with the soundproofing expert or supplier is essential, and this will help you purchase the correct product for your requirements.
