Sound Proofing

Save on sound proofing costs with our free service

Tired of noisy neighbours keeping you awake every night? Need to cut out extraneous noise at the office? Sound Proofing provides a cost effective means of reducing unwanted noise from outside or even from other rooms within your home or commercial building. Need to call in the professionals but not sure where to start? We can find you the best sound proofing services at a price to suit your budget.

What is a Sound Proofing?

Sound proofing refers to the use of various materials to not only reduce unwanted noise from penetrating a building, but also for preventing sound leaking out of a building. Sound proofing can also be used to improve the acoustics of a given room. Sound proofing materials use dampening, reflection, diffusion and absorption techniques to reduce unwanted noise.

Typical Sound Proofing Materials

Various materials are used for sound proofing. Some common materials such as fibreglass, foam insulation, soundboard and extra drywalling are not considered efficient. Concrete is especially ineffective for sound proofing as rigid materials transfer sound waves very well. The best sound proofing materials are often proprietary polymer materials developed by individual companies. Products like Acoustikblok are even environmentally friendly and fully recyclable.

The Installation Process

Sound proofing can be installed in any home or commercial space and is generally applied to ceilings, walls and floors for optimal sound reduction. Installation methods vary depending on the material used and the location of the sound proofing. The best method for you will depend on the type of noise you need to eradicate as well as the source of the noise.

Mass Sound Proofing - this method makes use of acoustic plasterboards or proprietary materials. This is a common method used in homes.

Multi Leaf construction - as the name implies, this method uses a complex layering system to create a sound barrier.

Insulation Absorption - this method typical uses mineral wool or other insulation material and is best suited to rooms where already low levels of noise need to be dampened.

Impact Barriers - this method uses high-tech isonc hangers or resilient bars installed across the ceiling to reduce noise. This method is suitable for more extreme noise.

Repair and Replacement

Sound Proofing can be long lasting if installed professionally and regularly maintained to prevent moisture damage and pest infestations. Some sound proofing materials are more susceptible to insects and damp than others so always consult the professionals before deciding on the right material for your needs. Damaged sound proofing may be replaced but this depends on the extent of the damage and the location of the compromised materials. In some cases, it may be more cost effective to just replace the sound proofing.

The Cost of Sound Proofing

The cost of sound proofing depends on the size of the room or building requiring treatment, the type of noise that needs to be reduced, the type of materials chosen, the selected installation method, and the labour involved in the process. Despite the costs, DIY sound proofing is not recommended as improper installations can compromise the integrity of your home and may even increase noise pollution.
