Following research by consumer watchdog Which? The Daily Mail has reported that at least five million people are annoyed with their next door neighbour, generally because of noise. It also discovered that more than ten million people have had a neighbour problems in the last year, which is equivalent to more than three in ten of all households.
These are frightening statistics and prove that the growing population of the UK comes at a price for many with noisy neighbours being prevalent in pretty much every town and city in the country.
It is suggested that those who are being driven crazy by excess noise should look to speak to the neighbour in question to address the issue. If this doesn’t work then it is recommended that you seek the advice of your local authority or take legal action as a last resort.
What hasn’t been proposed by many of the country’s leading figures is the possible effectiveness of soundproofing. You will be hugely surprised at how successful a soundproof home can be at keeping out troublesome noise and it comes at a mere fraction of the cost of what it would take to resort to legal proceedings or similar measures.
There a whole host of soundproofing materials for you to choose between when you want to make your home a quieter place.
Many solutions are specific to certain areas of the home so whether it is your door, floor or wall that needs soundproofing, there is no doubt that you will be able to find a sound-reducing product to do the job.
Sound won’t be allowed to get out of hand when you soundproof thoroughly as it will help to block and absorb large quantities of it. This also means you won’t have to worry about not being able to get your beauty sleep!
