Whether it’s the flight path overhead, road traffic or simply noisy neighbours, your roof can be a perfect entry point for unwanted noise. But with our bespoke roof soundproofing systems, return peace and quiet to your home, and get back that good nights’ sleep.
How We Soundproof Your Roof
All of our roof soundproofing systems work by dampening and dissipating the sound waves that flood your home. How we employ our solutions depends on the extent and origin of your noise complaint.
Mineral Wool Insulation
Roof insulation must have excellent thermal qualities that meet current building regulations, however, traditional insulation does not have acceptable acoustic qualities. By installing high-performance mineral wool acoustic roof insulation you can expect reductions in noise pollution of up to 49dB (Rw) whilst still keeping your home warm.
A highly adaptable acoustic insulation, soundproofing membranes are the perfect solution to airborne noise complaints and impact noise from rain and wind on metal roofs. Designed to fit seamlessly into your existing frameworks and to complement floating floors, at a few millimetres thick they will not intrude on your inner room space.
Acoustic Roof Panels
In the case of severe noise complaints, acoustic roof panels can be installed which not only provide superior thermal insulation, but which can dramatically reduce noise pollution in your home. Such solutions require the reroofing of your property.
Soundproof Windows & Skylights
One of the easiest points of ingress for noise, we install high performance soundproof windows and skylights complete with both specialised soundproof glazing and advanced noise reduction elements to further soundproof your roof.
Soundproof Loft Conversion
Whether you’ve created a master ensuite at the head of your house, or a home office to build your business, you’ll want to keep your loft conversion free of unwanted noise from both above and below.
We achieve this by:
- Eliminating air gaps in your loft.
- Installing floating floors.
- Improving acoustic insulation between the tiles and the interior.
- Installing soundproof doors and windows.
Soundproofing Metal Roofs
When it comes to metal roofs, rain becomes a major factor with even drizzle often creating enough noise to keep you up at night. We can install a multilayer metal soundproof roof system to prevent noise creation rather than dampening its effects, however we only recommend this when complaints are severe as it will require the reroofing of your property.
Our alternative solutions include the installation of a roof deck, underlay or adding additional layers of insulation to dissipate the sound of precipitation.
Soundproofing Tiled Roofs
The major concern with tiled roofs is the entry of unwanted noise as a consequence of substandard craftsmanship or materials. As such, the first step is to identify how noise is penetrating the roof. In most cases the solution will be to replace current insulation with more advanced acoustic insulation that also reaches thermal requirements as well as identifying and plugging air gaps.
How We Work
As providers of bespoke roof soundproofing systems we approach each project individually, looking for the solution that works best for your property. Our first step is to provide a consultation either over the phone or via email. We will then conduct a survey of your property to identify the noise source, its severity and how it is entering the loft.
From here we can provide a range of solutions to suit your budget and personal requirements.
