Depending on the use of your room, you may consider having it soundproofed so to reduce any unnecessary noise. If you are a regular homeworker then the answer to increase your productivity maybe to soundproof your study so that you have a quiet part of the house for you to concentrate. Alternatively if you are someone with a set of drums that can’t resist banging them in the small hours of the night you may consider soundproofing in order to keep you on the right side of your neighbours.
Soundproofing can bring many benefits to you and your home but it should not be something you consider doing yourself. A professional is called a professional for a reason; they have the skills and expertise needed. Even if you do have lots of experience on home improvement projects this is one area that is very likely to be outside of your comfort zone.
Why should I use a professional to soundproof my home?
If you use a professional that you can rest assured that you will receive a high quality end result! Not only will the finished result mean that you are completely soundproofed but also it will be visually appealing. A professional will always be on hand to offer helpful advice.
The materials used by a professional are much more likely to be of a higher quality ensuring they last longer than if you were to source the materials yourself.
What kind of rooms should be soundproofed?
In fact any room can benefit from being soundproofed. Even a laundry room can be soundproofed to keep a lid on those loud appliances. More common rooms to soundproof include theatre rooms. If you have a home theatre with a bass box right next to your wall, it is very likely that your neighbours are not going to be too impressed with the “boom” noise vibrating through the wall. Soundproofing the ceiling and the walls will contain the sounds to you and you only.
You can even create a quiet oasis in your main bedroom so that you do not have to put up with the sounds from outside. This can be really disturbing especially if you live on a main road. Soundproofing can ensure every night is peaceful and you can finally say goodbye to restless nights.
What does soundproofing involve?
Special insulation is usually fitted behind the wall. The key to capturing a complete soundproof room is to fill all cavities with insulations to prevent sound from vibrating through the walls and ceiling.
Many people that have taken the decision to soundproof their home notice a significant difference in their heating bills. Especially in the current economic climate that we are living in, this can be a welcome relief. With thanks to tighter seals and an increase in insulation air is blocking from seeping through the walls. This alone can be a massive selling point for those considering soundproofing.
