The Problem

Our customer contacted us to address airborne noises from his next-door neighbour. His home was built in the late 1800s but there was only a single skin of brick between the properties which coupled with lots of plasterboard on the walls from a renovation made for a very noisy home.  Our customer felt like his privacy was being compromised and he was struggling to work from home in such a noisy environment.

The Solution

As the home was quite tight on space, we opted for our Clip Direct to Wall System on all party walls but we replaced the first layer of the wall with a Fermacell cement particle board for added mass without losing additional depth. We cut into the internal adjacent walls and ran the new soundproofed walls straight across to reduce any flanking paths.

Words from the customer

I recently had the pleasure of engaging City Insulation for soundproofing services for a mid-terrace cottage, and I couldn't be happier with the results. Prior to their intervention, the soundproofing in my house was shockingly inadequate, as I could hear conversations and the daily activities of my neighbour. It had gotten to the point where selling the property seemed like a genuine option.

Right from my initial inquiries, the team displayed remarkable patience and professionalism. They took the time to understand my concerns and needs, ensuring that I felt heard and valued as a customer. The three guys who carried out the work over several days were exceptional. Not only were they tidy and respectful, but their expertise and dedication to their craft were evident in every aspect of their work.

Upon inspection, it was discovered that the party wall was extremely thin, exacerbating the sound issues. However, the improvements made have made a significant and tangible difference. Rachel and Adam were refreshingly honest about the limitations and expected results, managing my expectations effectively. I am thrilled to say that it now feels like I have a brand-new home that I can truly call my own.

The most irritating airborne sounds that once plagued my daily life have now been minimised. What was once an unbearable situation has been completely transformed, thanks to City Insulation. Their expertise, attention to detail, and commitment to customer satisfaction have surpassed my expectations.
