Sound insulation often needs to be upgraded for a wide variety of reasons including:
- The existing design and materials are unsuitable to meet Building Regulations Part E for a separating wall or floor structure.
- Alterations to the walls and floors over the years have damaged the original materials and construction and reduced the performance of the overall partition e.g adding new sockets to the dividing partitions.
- Installation of more efficient double glazing that helps to reduce external noise making it easier to hear neighbours airborne and impact noise through the walls and floor partitions.
- Possible changes to the floor coverings, such as the installation of laminate or solid timber flooring instead of carpets, which may increase the level of impact noise transmitted to the flat below.
