Soundproofing an Attic Studio

Sector: Domestic
Location: St. Werberghs, Bristol
Project: Attic Ceiling and Floor Soundproofing

Client Request:

“Convert Attic Space into a comfortable Soundproof Studio space, retaining some original features, and create a great environment to spend hours working in.”

The Project:

A friend approached us with a great project proposal: to covert and upgrade his attic roominto a comfortable, soundproof music studio that wouldn’t disturb the neighbours. The attic was in a Victorian terraced house, converted historically, therefore building regulation/planning was not necessary. We began by stripping the entire room, starting with an empty canvass to install our soundproofing materials.   

The floor was insulated with 100mm Rockwool with Cellecta Deckfon T&G flooring installed over joist. The ceiling and walls benefited from our NR1000C/W system which is achieved using a combination of rw45. Rockwool, double interlocking soundblocker boards – fixed to a maxi resilient bar system, offering isolation from the roof rafters, and helping to reduce vibration transfer.

The party walls were re-pointed for overall ascetics, and the loft also benefited from ‘industrial style’ radiators & electric plug points.

The Result:

We were all thrilled with the overall appearance of this Attic Music Studio upon finishing this project. The investment in soundproof panels & soundproof flooring was essential to our client, allowing him to work long hours, sometimes late into the evening, without disturbing his neighbours. We thoroughly enjoyed this succesful project from start to finish.

    • 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’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.

    • 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.
