You can choose your friends but you can’t choose your neighbours and unfortunately for some people this means hours of loud music, television and raised voices. Walls in modern houses tend to be thin and so noise is able to travel through them relatively easily which can make already loud neighbours become unbearable. However, wall soundproofing can help reduce this unwanted sound. Wall soundproofing reflects or absorbs the noise being transferred through the walls of the house, making it a lot quieter.
Unless you live in a secluded cottage in a field with a 5 mile perimeter, you will experience some levels of outside noise caused by day-to-day activities. This includes traffic and road noise, which is often a major issue for people living in homes close to motorways and busy roads. This can be a particular problem for individuals who work nights and try to sleep during the day. Wall soundproofing will minimise outside traffic noise and make the house quieter overall.
People often find that their household appliances make a lot of unwanted noise e.g. washing machine on spin cycle or fridge humming. To minimise this, wall soundproofing can be installed to help absorb and block the noise. Also, ceiling soundproofing will reduce the amount of noise heard from appliances upstairs which is advantageous if you like to put the washing machine and dishwasher on before you go to bed!
Barking dogs, meowing cats and squawking birds are all common noises around residential areas which are often unwanted and annoying. Sound proofing your home will minimise he volume and perhaps extinguish this noise altogether, leaving you with a peaceful abode.
Improve Saleability of the Home
If you are looking to move home and sell your current property, advertising it as fully soundproof will add to its value and appeal to potential buyers. This is because potential buyers will be reassured that even if the neighbours are noisy, there is a motorway around the corner and a dog breeder 3 houses down, their new house will be an oasis of quiet and tranquillity.
