Working hours in the UK are as considerable as any other country in Europe. With living costs as high as ever before, many of us have to extend our normal working hours in order to make ends meet which means doing over-time and taking whatever work we can get. This means that thousands of us get very little spare time and when we do we will often spend it at home.
When you get home after a long hard day you expect to be able to chill out on the sofa or go to bed without any form of disruption. This is unfortunately very rarely the case!
There are an increasing number of noisy neighbourhoods within the UK. Some put it down to the fact that our population is ever-increasing, others say a rise in the number of cars, buses, trains and planes are to blame. Whatever the form of noise is, collectively they can give you a permanent pain in the head. It doesn’t even matter whether you live in a period or new-build property; there is a good chance that noise will be an issue.
But it doesn’t have to be this way. Although it is impossible to expect transport links to quieten or prevent your neighbours from making excess noise, you can reduce the problem by spending your money on noise insulation in the form of soundproofing.
Soundproofing can cover all areas of the home with products including soundproof doors, acoustic decks, silent boards etc. They can even be applied in other environments such as in the office, pub, theatre or cinema.
