It's important for us to understand how sound is transmitted around a building before it's possible to identify techniques to stop it from happening.

Soundproofing Wirksworth Derbyshire (DE4)

Basically, sound moves in two ways around a room:

1. Through the air by vibration of air molecules.

2. Within and around a solid object by reflection and vibration.

Despite the fact that sound also travels through water, unless you're looking to eliminate sounds from an aquarium or pool, we'll only be concerned at how to soundproof rooms within a structure.


Sound can be transferred into and out of a room through gaps around doors, heating ducts, ill fitting windows and even electrical switches and sockets. Any sound vibrates the air molecules and this vibration is what we hear and identify as sound. Irrespective of the source of the sound; music playing, busy traffic, children playing, machinery or aircraft, all sounds are produced and transferred in exactly the same fashion.

You must therefore imagine a room as a boat and inspect it carefully for leaks that need sealing before you can sail it.


Sound waves can additionally be reflected by, absorbed by or transferred to solid objects and structures. Sound can be transferred around a property from its source by the vibration of walls, floors and ceilings. Even a room made from solid concrete, such as a cellar, can generate a path of resonance which transports sound waves, and even amplify them, to other rooms in a building.

But, how can these sound generating effects be stopped from causing a problem? The solution is not surprisingly, soundproofing!


Consider covering bare floors, which reflect and resonate sound, with a carpet or rug. These soft coverings and rugs will help soak up noises but can also add a bit of style to a previously bare room. Curtains, and especially substantial blackout types, can also repress any sounds from escaping or invading a room, cost-effectively and without requiring professional soundproofing.

Another inexpensive and do-it-yourself remedy is to plug any gaps around windows, door frames, sockets and light fittings. It is possible to buy professional acoustic sealants in some building supply stores which subdue the transmission of sound by absorbing it. They might be a tad more expensive than normal sealants or plaster, but they're worth the cost for their soundproofing qualities.

For anybody renovating a property or redecorating a room, consider the soundproofing properties of adding a supplementary skin of plasterboard or soundboard, (also called gypsum board, sheet rock or drywall), whilst you're carrying out the work. This is a relatively dense type of boarding which is a perfect and economic soundproofing material. If you are fitting a studio, home office or movie room then plasterboard can help in reducing sound transmission to and from that room, and can be decorated easily after installment. If you do decide to use plasterboard to help with your soundproofing it is wise to employ a specialist fitter in Wirksworth, to get the maximum benefit from its installation.

The final solution for DIY enthusiasts is to think about the doors within your home in Wirksworth. Even though hollow doors are lightweight and comparatively affordable, their soundproofing characteristics are not that brilliant. Switching hollow doors for solid ones will improve the soundproofing attributes of a room with only a minimal extra cost.


If you reside in a high noise pollution location, such as next to a busy road or near an airport, you will have to be more innovative in your attempts to boost the soundproofing qualities of your home. You will get the most effective soundproofing outcome by using the services of an established soundproofing company.

Expect to answer the following four questions during an evaluation of your soundproofing requirements:

  1. How big is the space that you need to have soundproofed?
  2. What is the space you want to soundproof constructed from? (i.e. a stud partition wall, a brick wall or a fully lined concrete wall).
  3. Is it external sounds or internal noise that you wish to tackle? i.e. To stop road noise, noisy neighbours or trains, or is it from internally created sounds from a home cinema or music studio for example.
  4. Where is the majority of the noise pollution coming from? The ceiling, walls, floors, doors or windows.

With honest answers to these questions a professional soundproofing firm in Wirksworth will offer you solutions for your situation, and just as important, your budget. The areas of your room that are causing the biggest problems may each require different remedies.


Two key approaches are needed to soundproof any size of space or room:

  1. Lower the effect of sound vibration, reflection and amplification by hard surfaces.
  2. Sound absorption will need to be enhanced.

A site survey will be needed to pinpoint the elements to be improved.

A professional soundproofer will consider the different methods for adding mass and density to the troublesome areas. This additional mass will help to improve the absorption of sound by means of acoustic foam or rubber to achieve the maximum impact of noise reduction.

The insulation between any voids will be improved to reduce the noise resonation and amplification of these sound boxes. Wall cavities or flooring and ceiling voids can all be likened to a drum, where the space acts like an amplification source for any undesirable sounds.

Soundproofing is enhanced if multiple layers of different density materials are employed, as opposed to installing only one sort of material. This is due to the fact that different frequencies are affected by different kinds of materials, therefore a diversity of densities, layers and shapes within your soundproofing panels are needed for the best results.

Part E of the Building Regulations regulate the soundproofing of domestic properties, and must be applied by any installation company in Wirksworth. Part E of the Building Regulations is a requirement in law to protect yourself and neighbours from the negative effects of sound pollution in an environment where people live and work.

Watch out for contractors bearing the logos of the Association of Noise Consultants or the Institute of Acoustics to guarantee that you're dealing with a business which is knowledgable and fully qualified in the soundproofing sector. A reputable soundproofing contractor in Wirksworth will have been through a vetting procedure for the quality and professionalism of their workmanship to have been accepted as a member of these associations.

Soundproofing Underlay Wirksworth

If you are experiencing lots of noise in your Wirksworth property, an excellent way to reduce this without too much disturbance is by installing some acoustic underlay on your floors. This is okay for use on concrete or wooden floors and can be laid underneath laminate, engineered wood, vinyl planks, carpet, and other flooring types.

Soundproofing underlay is particularly effective where there's an issue with impact noise rather than airborne noise. The more widespread use of hard floor finishes means that impact noise pollution has become an ever-increasing problem for householders in Wirksworth. Upstairs rooms are the main origin of such issues, with general footfall, kids running around and moving furniture being typical forms of troublesome noise.

Do not confuse ordinary carpet underlay with genuine acoustic underlay, because some unprincipled carpet merchants may try to palm you off with such products, claiming that they're suitable substitutes. If the noise problems you're experiencing are significant, be sure you purchase a quality acoustic underlay from a trustworthy vendor.

Even though impact noise can be noticeably lowered with soundproofing underlays, they have differing levels of success when it comes to deafening music, blaring TV's and shouting, and other airborne noise issues. Before selecting an underlay product you should speak to the soundproofing expert or supplier about your specific situation, and discuss the specific sorts of noise you are aiming to minimise.

Soundproofing Foam Wirksworth

I was fascinated to learn recently that one of the most common soundproofing key phrases typed into Google and Yahoo was "soundproofing foam", and local searches included things like "soundproofing foam Wirksworth" and "acoustical foam Wirksworth". Now, that's quite worrying because this would imply that local home owners are turning to acoustic foam products as a way to fix their noise issues in Wirksworth.

It is not a case of me trying to be the bearer of bad news, but the fact is that soundproofing foam isn't going to be the answer you're searching for, and will definitely not block out the racket caused by your noisy neighbours in Wirksworth.

The familiar "egg box" shaped foam, that often appears to be the trademark of soundproofing, is not actually designed for stopping the transmission of 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. It is not good for preventing sound from travelling freely around your house, or stopping noise from passing through the wall of a neighbouring building. Soundproofing foam is in fact porous and does not have the consistency to block sound, it absorbs it and actually allows sound to pass through it.

If however, you are changing some free space into a music studio, this may be a valuable product for you, and can be found in various thicknesses (typically 25mm and 50mm), and in different tile and sheet sizes.

Acoustic Mineral Wool

One of the most versatile products available for soundproofing homes in Wirksworth, AMW (otherwise known as acoustic mineral wool) has various different applications for your sound absorption needs. Acoustic grade mineral wool is designed specifically for installation in the cavity spaces of floors, walls and ceilings, to absorb sound waves, enhance acoustic performance and dampen vibration.

Acoustic Mineral Wool Wirksworth

Acoustic mineral wool normally comes in 600mm x 1200mm "slabs" and is available in thicknesses of 25mm, 50mm, 75mm and 100mm. AMW is often made from recycled raw materials (approximately 20%), is non-combustible and is chemically inert. It doesn't encourage the development of fungi, bacteria or mould, nor does it have a reaction with any substances or materials that it comes into close contact with (i.e. masonry, plastics, brickwork or metal wall ties).

Notably effective as a sound absorption infill when installed in the gaps between stud partitions, flooring joists and suspended ceilings, acoustic mineral wool is widely used in the building industry for fire, thermal and acoustic insulation. When it comes to separating floors and walls, and so as to observe Part E of the Building Regulations, AMW can be used alongside other acoustic solutions.
