Soundproofing noisy neighbours
Do you suffer from noise from your neighbours? Or do your neighbours cause noise nuisance? Noise nuisance from neighbours is a common problem. Moreover, noise from neighbours can lead to an unpleasant discussion and even arguments.
In many cases noise nuisance of neighbours, it is caused by poor sound insulation in the house. With the right measures you can improve the sound insulation of your wall, wall or floor.
Countering noise nuisance from neighbours
Air noise and contact noise
Noise nuisance from neighbours can be distinguished in terms of airborne noise and contact noise. Voices, television, music are examples of airborne noise. These can penetrate directly through partition walls and floors.
Examples of impact sound are footsteps, pounding on stairs and a vibrating washing machine. Impact sound can best be tackled at the source.
Upstairs neighbors / Downstairs neighbors
Your ceiling is the floor of your upstairs neighbors. Both contact noise and airborne noise can cause nuisance. With a false ceiling or floating floor you reduce the transfer and vibrations.
The dividing wall between the house can allow too much air noise (voices) and contact noise from the nearest neighbors to pass through. A retaining wall that does not make contact with the floor is a solution here.
Flanking sound is caused by the transmission of sound through surfaces other than the direct partition wall or floor. For example, it may be necessary to insulate not only your ceiling, but also your walls.
Cracks, holes, ventilation, window frames and doors that do not close are a few examples of sound leakage. With good sound insulation, it is important to first identify weak spots in construction parts.
