Earlier properties may have been created with Party Walls that have little or no sound insulation at all so normal day to day noise can be heard quite clearly.
Neighbours do not have to be noisy for there to be a problem . In most cases the issue is with the single brick construction of the Party Wall and also the age of the property itself.
The problem of extraneous sound bleed through your home if left to persist over time can have a negative effect on the quality of life at home. Soundproofing your walls are more straight forward than imagined, especially if the issue is Airborne Nosie only.
There are many soundproofing products and solutions that can be used to tackle problems with brick or stud wall sound bleed. Dogs barking, loud conversations, phones ringing, light switch activation, children running up and down stairs, the list goes on. At Soundproofing R Us we know which approach works best for all of these sound problems.
Some of our Wall Solutions such as SRU Sound Panels or the M20 wall panel solutions can be fixed directly onto any brick wall with a spray adhesive or bonding compound. We then use additional Acoustic Plasterboards to complete the project, again bonding with a specially formulated soundproofing adhesive.
If we find that you need a more robust approach we can build an Independent wall that will give you better protection against noise transference in your home. Additional Products such as Tecsound membranes and Mass Loaded vinyl can then be incorporated into your soundproofing solution to get maximum improvement.
Soundproofing treatments for walls are continually developing. Products such as Green Glue which is a damping compound can be added between the two layers of acoustic plasterboard we fit to further minimise noise transference.
Please find below many Wall Soundproofing solutions to minimise noise in your home today.
