About The Sound Proofer - Based in Bristol & Bath

Dowling Building Solutions Ltd, are a well established Bristol-based company, trading since 1982. For over 35 years, we have predominately been a family operated General Building firm undertaking all forms of construction & maintenance works. TheSoundproofer is a trading name of Dowling Building Solutions Ltd.

We have successfully completed thousands of domestic & commercial building projects, gaining a vast history of experience in the trade, in customer service, and gaining a wealth of engineering knowledge along the way.

In the year 2000, we began undertaking soundproofing installations due to customer demand. Since then we have progressed further into Soundproofing, as a specialist trader, and installer.

Our progression, and development into understanding new soundproofing skills, techniques, and methods have coincided with the expansion of modern soundproofing materials, now available on the market.

Many competitors still only use standard dB check plasterboard products. They are readily available, cheaper, but are also old technology in comparison to modern noise reduction materials.

We feel it’s absolutely fundamental that latest, dedicated soundproofing materials are used throughout our systems and solutions. Quite simply, they outperform older traditional building materials and can achieve outstanding results.

We offer our clients top quality, affordable soundproofing solutions, to suit their needs. Our expert team are here to deliberate, cogitate and digest all available options and will help you make a concise decision to eliminate unwanted noise.

  • I’m very happy with the quality of the work, the finish is fantastic and you’d never be able to tell a whole load of soundproofing materials have been installed above the plastered ceiling. The installers were really friendly, pleasant guys. They were very professional, thorough, and extremely tidy too! Best of all though, the reduction in noise from upstairs has massively exceeded my hopes – what was a constant source of sleep interruption and tired days, is now nothing more than the occasional faint sound. Worth every penny. Thanks again.

  • Very professional service. Dowlings inspected the room and recommended Maxiboard - then provided a firm quote which they stuck to and a schedule which they did not run over. The work took a 5 days to do a ceiling and one wall. They took great care to keep mess down to a minimum and left the place as clean and tidy as you could realistically expect. It was expensive but you only get what you pay for. And the good news is it worked. The noise of TVs, voices, phones ringing have all been blocked out. The foot-fall noise from above has been cut to a tolerable level. Good work!

  • I asked The Sound Proofer to soundproof two walls in a top floor bedroom that had road noise and poor thermal insulation. Through chatting with Nick I was able ascertain the type of soundproofing needed and was provided a fixed price quote. Communication was excellent and they did exactly what was spec'ed out and agreed, the work started on time and continued until it was finished. I'm very pleased with the work carried out and would say that The Sound Proofer are a very professional outfit.
