NOISE CONTROL IN YOUR NEW HOME
An exciting yet daunting process, building or renovating a house requires thoughtful planning with the aim to have a lasting impact on the comfort and performance of every room.
So while some homeowners often leave the material choice up to the builder, it’s important to choose the right products and know exactly what is being installed. While many homeowners tend to spend time thinking about interior furnishings, fixtures, accents and colour palettes when building or renovating, minimal time is spent researching the importance of walls and ceilings that will positively contribute to the overall comfort and look of
the home. By being involved in the planning and selection of wall and ceiling linings, homeowners can have a lasting impact on the comfort and performance of every room in their home.
High on the list of desirable new home attributes is peace and quiet. A home should be a space to escape unwanted noise and enjoy tranquility. There are many factors that can contribute to noise pollution including proximity between dwellings, road and air traffic, open plan living, hard surface finishes and powerful home entertainment systems.
To take control of noise, it’s important to understand the different types of noise issues that can affect spaces in a home. Unwanted noise can enter through external walls, ceilings and the roof and these sound waves can then transfer through to internal walls and rooms within the house.
To help improve the acoustics in a home, look to Gyprock Soundchek – an acoustic rated, high density plasterboard that can be used on walls and ceilings. The use of Soudchek plasterboard, combined with glasswool bulk insulation can help reduce noise transfer. The combination of these two building materials can increase the density of walls and ceilings allowing noise to be absorbed to improve the overall acoustic comfort of a home.
