Noisy neighbours and Soundproofing

September 16th, 2013

Are you bothered by the noise your neighbour makes?

Noise from neighbours can be very  irritating and annoying. It can also be very disturbing. Having noisy neighbours can be officially bad for your health: The World Health Organisation (WHO) released a report entitled Guideline for Community Noise. This report highlighted a number of health risks associated with noise generated by noisy neighbours.

How do you deal with it?

Have you tried speaking to your neighbours? Sometimes the personal approach is the best approach… Don’t go in guns blazing, moaning, complaining, phoning the council or phoning the police! This will only antagonize your neighbour and probably make them make more noise!!!

If you feel you can’t talk to them, or they are simply not sympathetic to your request, then maybe think about soundproofing… Because it works.

Soundproofing, when installed correctly by efficient, professional installers using the correct acoustic materials will work, and will significantly reduce and block unwanted noise.

Our soundproofing solutions offer affordable, cost effective sound insulation from noise pollution and noisy neighbours. Without adequate acoustic insulation many people will have their privacy constantly invaded by noise!

Soundproofing Advice

September 11th, 2013

I am often contacted by people who have no experience in soundproofing, other than what they have ‘looked up’ on the internet, and to my astonishment, they often have some interesting stories about soundproofing advice they have received from family and friends. Let me tell you now – Sticking egg boxes to your walls will not soundproof your walls. They will however constitute a fire hazard!

Flo-chip polystyrene, bubble wrap and rolled-up newspapers (you may be surprised) also do not work either!

Noise is unwanted sound and sound waves are vibrations in the air that can pass through solids, liquids and gasses. Soundproofing is all about creating ‘Barriers’ so that the vibrations drastically lose energy and therefore aren’t transmitted. We create those barriers by increasing mass and by separation.

We have proven soundproofing solutions that will significantly reduce and block unwanted noise from traveling from your neighbours home into yours. Contact us now for your free quotation.
