It is important to realise how sound is transmitted around an area before it is possible to find methods to stop it from happening.

Soundproofing Winterton Lincolnshire (DN15)

Sound is able to move in only two ways:

1. By vibration of solid materials and structures.

2. By the vibration of air molecules.

Although sound can also travel through water, unless you are eager to reduce sounds from a swimming pool or aquarium, we'll just be interested in how to reduce sound levels in rooms within a property.

SOUND TRAVEL THROUGH THE AIR

Substantial amounts of sound can be transmitted out of and into a room through open ducting, ill fitting windows, gaps around doors and even electrical sockets and switches. All noise vibrates the molecules in the air and these vibrations are what we hear and identify as sound. Regardless of the source of the noise; aeroplanes, kids playing, heavy machinery, busy traffic or music playing, all sound is created and transmitted in precisely the same way.

Any openings in the room can be regarded as leaks and will have to be closed off.

SOUND TRAVEL THROUGH OBJECTS AND STRUCTURES

As sound travels through the air by vibrations, then it seems reasonable to assume that such vibrations can be reflected by, transferred to or absorbed by various materials. Sound can be transported around a building from its original source through the vibration of ceilings, floors and walls. Care must be taken with solid concrete or brick walls, such as a basement, as sound can be reflected and sometimes even amplified to other areas of your home.

So, how can we stop this sound transference from affecting other people? Soundproofing of course.

SIMPLE STEPS IN SOUNDPROOFING

A bare floor resonates more than one covered by a rug or carpet. Not only can such a simple and straightforward solution reduce your noise pollution problem, it can also perk up the room. Window drapes and wall coverings can also be employed to enhance soundproofing and are easy to install.

Track down areas in the rooms where noise can escape or come in; sockets, light fittings, windows and door frames, and close off the gaps or holes. There are special acoustic sealants available to buy which absorb the sound waves, and don't transmit them to the surrounding materials. They are a bit more pricey than standard sealants or plaster, but are worth every penny for their soundproofing efficiency.

If your room is an empty canvas and you're doing the soundproofing as you decorate or renovate, think about putting up a skin of plasterboard or soundboard, (also called drywall, sheet rock or gypsum board). This is a fairly dense board that is a perfect and economic soundproofing material. It's excellent if you're installing a music studio, study or cinema room in your home in Winterton. If you are not familiar with putting up plasterboard and studding, it is advisable to hire a professional team to guarantee the best soundproofing gains from its installation.

One final easy soundproofing treatment is to examine the materials from which your doors are made. Hollow doors are fairly cheap although their soundproofing qualities are a far cry from the best. Changing hollow core doors for solid core will improve the soundproofing of a room with only a minimal extra cost.

  3. What are the specific noises that need to soundproofed? i.e. Is it sounds from within your house such as a teenagers bedroom or home cinema, or outside noises such as street noise, passing trains, noisy neighbours, etc.

PROFESSIONAL SOUNDPROOFING OF FLOORS, WALLS and CEILINGS

2 key approaches are needed to soundproof any type of space:

  1. Update and increase the amount of sound absorption.
  2. Reduce the effects on the way sound is reflected off and transmitted through solid surfaces.

An on-site survey is going to be necessary to examine the elements that need improving.

The specialists will work out ways of adding materials that have different masses and densities to enhance the sound absorption of the area. This additional mass will include ways to enhance absorption of the sound energy by the use of acoustic rubber or foam to gain the maximum impact of noise reduction.

Any uninsulated voids in the room might require some sort of deadening material to be inserted between them to lessen sound resonation. Floor and ceiling voids and wall cavities can all be assimilated with a drum, where the space acts as an amplifying area for undesired noise.

It is best to use combined layers of different densities to deaden undesired noises than a single layer made from one material. This is because the various frequencies are absorbed differently by different kinds of materials, therefore a diversity of densities, shapes and layers within your soundproofing armoury are needed.

All soundproofing companies in Winterton will be needing to follow the requirements for residential buildings as laid out in Part E of the Building Regulations. These regulations should be observed in order to protect yourself and others from being negatively impacted by noise pollution.

Soundproofing Foam Winterton

It seems from doing some elementary keyphrase research that a frequent search on Google is for "soundproofing foam" and for local home owners, "soundproofing foam Winterton". This is rather bewildering, as it implies a lack of understanding by local homeowners who seem to be of the belief that their noise problems can be solved with soundproofing foam products.

It is not my intention to be the bearer of bad news, but most soundproofing issues can't be solved with this product, and if your aim is to reduce the din caused by noisy neighbours in Winterton, you will need to look elsewhere.

Blocking out noise isn't actually the purpose of the familiar "egg box" style foam, which was in fact designed for use in music studios and similar surroundings, where it can enhance the sound clarity in a room, and reduce reverberation, amplification and echoing. It is not effective in preventing noise from travelling freely around your house, or preventing sound from penetrating the wall of a neighbouring property. Given that acoustic foam is porous and spongy, it actually permits sound to pass right through it, and does not have the density to inhibit it.

If however, you are changing a space into a music room, this could be a valuable product for you, and can be bought in various thicknesses (typically 25mm and 50mm), and in different sheet and tile sizes.
