Improving Sound Insulation in Homes

Many hundreds of people complain about neighbour noise each week throughout the UK.

The problem usually occurs at the existing wall & floor partitions between units. Poor quality new build or conversion projects can often have substandard sound insulation which can lead to pre-completion sound test failures.

If your dwelling was completed pre June 1992 there may be little or no sound insulation improvement undertaken on the floor or walls. If this is the case, upgrading the floor or walls is likely to lead to significant improvements. These improvements can be fairly minimal, however they can make a huge difference to your well being.
