It's crucial for us to understand how sound travels around a structure before it is possible to discover methods to stop it from occurring.

Soundproofing Wingate County Durham (TS28)

There are only a couple of ways in which sound can move around a home:

1. In open spaces by movement of air.

2. Through the vibration of objects or materials.

As dolphin and whale songs can show, sound also penetrates long distance through water, however unless your aim is to soundproof an aquarium or pool we'll just look at the methods of soundproofing structures and rooms.


If you check out the room or area to be soundproofed and notice heating ducts, gaps around doors, ill fitting windows and even light fittings and electrical sockets, these are all causes of sound transmission. All noise vibrates the air molecules and these vibrations are what we hear as sound. It does not matter whether it's music, aircraft, machinery, kids playing or traffic, they all produce and transmit sound in the same manner.

Any openings in the room can be looked at as leaks and will need to be closed off.


If sound travels through the air by vibration, then it stands to reason that this vibration can be reflected by, transferred to or absorbed by various solid materials. Sound will cause vibrations in the ceilings, walls and floors of your rooms, and may cause a resonation effect which is transmitted beyond the room itself. Care has to be taken with solid brick or concrete walls, such as a cellar, because sound can be transmitted and amplified to other rooms in your house.

But, how can these sound generating effects be stopped from creating an issue? The solution is not surprisingly, soundproofing!


A bare floor surface is more resonant than one covered by a carpet or rug. Such a simple and straightforward solution can help to damp down any noise and spruce up the room to boot. Curtains, in particular heavy blackout ones, will also repress any sounds from invading or escaping a room, cost-effectively and without the need for professional installation.

Another cost-effective and do-it-yourself resolution is to plug any gaps or holes around light fittings, windows, door frames and electrical sockets. It is possible to purchase specialist acoustic sealants in some building supply stores that suppress the transfer of sound by absorbing the sound waves. There will be a considerable difference in the price when compared to a normal sealant, however the soundproofing capabilities are a lot better and will make a huge difference to a room's level of soundproofing.

If the room you are working on is a blank canvas and you are soundproofing while you decorate or renovate, consider putting up another layer of plasterboard or soundboard, (also called gyproc, sheet rock or drywall). Plasterboard is a very dense material which is both economical and efficient for soundproofing purposes. It is excellent if you are setting up a home office, cinema room or studio in your house in Wingate. If you're not experienced in putting up plasterboard and studding, it is wise to employ a professional Wingate contractor to guarantee the optimum soundproofing results from its installation.

One final easy soundproofing option is to look at the materials your doors are made of. Even though hollow doors are light and fairly cheap, their soundproofing attributes are not the best. Exchanging hollow core doors for solid core will enhance the soundproofing attributes of a room with only a small extra cost.


Some properties, such as those on aircraft flight-paths or next to busy traffic routes, naturally have more issues with sound pollution and will require other ways to resolve the dilemma. This is when retaining the services of an experienced soundproofing company will bring the greatest results.

The initial questions you can expect to be asked are:

  1. Is it internal noise or external sounds that you need to target? i.e. To lessen neighbours playing loud music, street noise or overflying aircraft, or is it from internally produced sounds from a family room or music room for example.
  2. Where is the primary source of the sound coming from? i.e. Above, through the doors, walls, windows, flooring or ceiling, or a combination of all sorts of things.
  3. What room needs to be soundproofed? i.e. Is it an attic conversion, a brick walled room, a concrete lined basement or a stud partitioned room.
  4. How big is the room requiring soundproofing?

Your answers to such questions will allow you to get price quotes for the various available solutions that match your needs. The parts of your room that are responsible for the biggest issues will each need different remedies.


2 key components are required to soundproof any sort of space or room:

  1. Reduce the effects on the way sound is reflected off and transmitted through solid surfaces.
  2. Sound absorption will have to be maximised.

This will require an on-site survey to determine exactly what areas require improving from the present state.

A specialist will consider the different ways to add mass and density to the trouble spots. Soundproofing can be boosted by the application of acoustic rubber and foam which absorbs soundwaves and enhances and the sound quality of a room.

Voids between floor joists might need insulation to eliminate the resonating gap between them. If you think about a drum or wooden cajon, you are looking at a noise increasing void surrounded by a resonating material; essentially what you may encounter inside ceiling and floor joists, or wall cavities.

It's better to use mixed layers of different densities to absorb unwelcome noises than a single layer made of one kind of soundproofing material. The various materials will reduce different frequencies of noise and deliver a more balanced auditory experience and feeling to a room.

Any soundproofing company in Wingate will need to comply with the the Building Regulations (Part E), if your property is residential in nature. Such legislation have to be observed in order to protect yourself and others from the harmful effects of sound pollution.

The Association of Noise Consultants (ANC) and the Institute of Acoustics (IOA) are recognised trade organisations who provide qualifications and training, and are representative of the best in contractors and companies who provide soundproofing services. Any Wingate company displaying IOA or ANC accreditation has been appraised to ensure they offer the highest standards, reliability and quality of work within the soundproofing industry.

Acoustic or Soundproofing Underlay Wingate

If you are experiencing a lot of troublesome noise in your Wingate home, a good way to lessen this without excessive disturbance is by installing some soundproofing underlay on your floors. Both wooden and concrete floors are suitable surfaces for these underlays, and they can be laid under carpet, vinyl planks, laminate and engineered wood.

Where there are specific issues with impact noise as opposed to airborne noise, soundproofing underlay is particularly beneficial. Recent increases in the popularity of "harder" floor finishes in Wingate properties, means there are a growing number of problems with impact noise. Rooms upstairs are the main origin of such issues, with general footfall, kids stomping around and moving furniture being typical forms of troublesome noise.

Although some unscrupulous carpet stockists may attempt to sell you standard carpet underlay with claims that it has decent soundproofing benefits, this should not be mistaken for genuine soundproofing underlay. If you have significant noise problems be sure to purchase a good quality soundproofing underlay.

Although it's an effective product for impact noise, acoustic underlay has varying levels of success when it comes to reducing airborne noises like incessant talking, blaring TV's and deafening music, and some products are definitely better than others. Before picking a product you should talk to the supplier or soundproofing specialist about your specific circumstances, and identify the precise kinds of noise you're trying to reduce.
