A story on www.dissexpress.co.uk has described how two Birmingham residents who made their neighbours’ lives miserable by repeatedly booming out loud music have had their equipment confiscated. This included a CD player, a television with sub-woofer speakers, and hundreds of CDs. These are the kind of items that none of us would like to have taken away from us and all of this could have been avoided if only they had considered soundproofing their home.
Soundproofing could have avoided the nuisance of noise invading other nearby residences and would have prevented the pair from being tagged as noisy neighbours, a phrase that no one wants to be coined with. When you are a homeowner you have the responsibility of keeping the amount of noise generated in your home reduced to a bare minimum, something which will gain you both respect and increase the likelihood of your obtaining new friends.
If you have a room in your home which contains thin walls and are worried about disturbing your next door neighbours, then you need to get soundproofing so that you do not need to worry about watching your television or fiddling on your decks until the early hours of the morning. Noise insulation products such as acoustic matting can be applied onto walls, as well as floors and ceilings in order to absorb noise and make sure that it does not pass through walls as easily.
If you live in apartment then it makes good sense to have an acoustic door installed as a replacement for your current wooden door. With investigation you will find that some doors will be responsible for allowing the most amount of noise through gaps present in the door frame.
Soundproofing can allow you to continue your home life as normal as possible and let you keep on playing those tunes.
