Domestic soundproofing – Problem and Solution

Noisy neighbours are something we speak to people about every day. We hear stories about the inter twining personal lives, the habits and attitudes of two groups of people who simply live in close proximity to each other.

 

People often tell us they have just moved in and discovered they have noisy neighbours or similarly new neighbours have moved in and they can’t believe they haven’t heard anything from their previous neighbour in 10 years but they can hear everything the new neighbours are saying now!

 

However you have been lumbered with noisy neighbours, you have found yourself wondering what you can do about it. To sell the house is too expensive and to hope that they may change their ways or even move out some time soon is not a practical strategy for dealing with it. You may even get on with them and know they are just going about their everyday lives as a family but to confront them about the noise is too embarrassing. We have had every type of domestic noise situation thrown at us and we have helped hundreds of people in your position.

Common noise complaints that we can help with:

  • Television noise
  • Conversation / shouting / arguing

  • Radio
  • Telephone ringing
  • Footsteps
  • Doors banging
  • Street noise – cars / passers by

Soundproofing - the bottom line

Installing domestic soundproofing can give you your lives back and it can be done quickly, fairly un-invasively, and it doesn’t have to cost the earth.

Excellent work ethic from the lads. Down to earth friendly and a job well done. Great comms from the office to the gaffa to the team in the house. Pleased with the job that was done, could not fault from start to finish. Difference is night & day.

If you want a room or wall soundproofing then I highly recommend this company, couldn’t fault anything and the results are exactly what we were hoping for. They kept the house clean and tidy and were the most professional workers we’ve had working on our property. Definitely worth the full 5 stars.

Adam and the team are absolutely incredible! The team worked really hard, in all weathers, to get the soundproofing installed. They were wonderful with finishing touches as well, and have really helped to create the peace I desired for my home. They are genuinely good people and really care about providing the best service. I whole heartedly recommend them to anyone looking for soundproofing.

Adam and his team completed sound proofing in our front lounge in early Seotember. Both Adam and Rachel were very helpful in advising us on the options and we really appreciated the visit before the main work started given some of the layout issues in the room. The team arrived on time and were extremely friendly and professional. We liked the updates as the job progressed, they really involved us which was very much appreciated. I can honestly recommend City Insulation for any sound proofing work you may be considering, it makes such a difference and these guys know what they are doing. Thanks again Adam, Rachel and the team.Andy & Michelle, Lancashire.

I can’t recommend City Insulation highly enough. We had a problem with a noisy neighbour in our terrace house, which was made worse when they converted their attic. From the first time we spoke to Adam and his team, we could tell they really cared and would do all they could to solve our problem. Their team were so polite, tidy and thorough and they all went above and beyond to make sure that we had the best possible outcome. We are so glad that we went ahead with our soundproofing as it has made our house a pleasant place to be again. Thank you so much City Insulation - highly recommend.

Adam and the company are absolutely amazing, very professional and really trust worthy, they made our dream into reality. I couldn't recommend these guys enough. From the beginning of the project Adam kept us informed of what was happening and his scheduling was perfectly clear, the whole job ran so smoothly and stress free we couldn't believe it.

From first emails with Rachel, to a video call with Adam to discuss our requirements, to Nick and his team installing the soundproofing, the process was really professional and put us at ease that the team really knew what they were doing. We required soundproofing for two rooms, including a chimney breast, and the team were great at presenting different options and trying to accomodate our budget whilst getting us the best result. The instillation itself took place over two days and the team were a pleasure to have in the house - a v professional and tidy job. We're really happy with the result and would have no hesitation in recommending City Insulation!

Highly recommended, professional, knowledgeable and a pleasure to deal with. Adam and his team have installed secondary glazing in our city centre apartment, overcoming tricky building quirks and still delivering a superb finish.

I cannot recommend Adam & his team at City Insulation enough. I had new neighbours in October 2019 who could be extremely noisy on occasion and sometimes I would dread coming home. My neighbours can't just talk, they shout and can have arguments at 11pm at night and can have their TV on loudly. After contacting Adam I decided to proceed with what I can only describe as the ultimate noise stopper (two mass upgrades on top of Level 1 independent) It's worked, noise reduced by 95%! This has improved my home life and I can now sit in my lounge happily watching TV. The team were friendly, clean and efficient I'm really happy I proceeded with City Insulation.

Was a pleasure dealing with this company, from initial contact Rachel contacted back always being polite and professional. The team arrived on time as quoted and were most polite and knowledgable. The attention to detail not just in the job though in keeping the house clean and tidy. Finished work first class highly recommend this company and will use again.

City Insulation soundproofed the party wall with our noisy neighbours. Now, instead of hearing full blown shouting, we hear murmerings which is totally expected and acceptable. This has undoubtedly had an impact on our quality of life. Cannot praise City Insulation enough - courteous and polite, and know their stuff. We would not hesitate to recommend them.

Adam & his team have done an excellent job soundproofing an additional music studio in our complex in Central London. Despite City Insulation being based in the North West, and even during the pandemic, the process was made all the easier due to excellent lines of communication, a common sense and courtesy approach and a reliability that is often all too lacking when dealing with trades of all kinds.They not only managed the strip out and refit of our soundproofing materials and stud walls / ceilings, Adam also managed the installation of the air filtration system. Lovely guys, quality work.

It was great dealing with Adam and team throughout. We booked before lockdown so there was an obvious delay but as soon as they could they came in and did the job. Very happy with the whole process and of course the end result. I am sure the neighbours have pumped up the volume knowing we'd had it done but still a lot more peaceful!! Definitely would recommend.

The quality of the work and finish was very high. Thank you

Can’t recommend City Insulation enough. Really professional and friendly team who spent a week soundproofing a ceiling for our new business venture. The job ended up being more complicated than originally thought but the team worked until close to midnight on the final night to get everything done in time, so that the rest of the building schedule could continue as planned. It was a pleasure to have them working with us for the week. Thanks Adam and the rest of the team 🙂

From the start they were polite, clear in their communication and clean, tidy and punctual. Can’t recommend enough. I now have my silent room so I can work with confidence. Thank you

I used City Insulation to soundproof a small bedroom located on a ground floor which was suffering from being located under the living space of the flat above. What was only a "small job" had it's complications due to high ceilings and an irregular room shape but Adam didn't complain and spent considerably longer than expected to do the job. Finally packing away at 21:00 in the evening (and leaving the flat really clean). I couldn't fault any element of the work or service and the guys were both friendly, trustworthy and great at communicating progress along with Bibi keeping everything organised in the background. I wouldnt have any issues giving the guys the strongest reccomendation and they fully deserve the great reviews they have.

Fantastic service from start to finish with City Insulation. Bibi was efficient, informative and friendly with all the initial phone calls and questions as well as throughout and made the process very easy to understand. Adam was down to earth and professional from the first visit and clearly explained all the options available. From the work being booked in every step was as they had said and they actually finished sooner than planned. It’s a dusty job but was cleaned up really well on the last day with little for me left to do. The acoustics in the house already feel so much better and I haven’t heard the neighbours through any of the walls completed as yet so it’s so far so good. Looking forward to being in the room properly when it’s all decorated and having a peaceful home. Thank you and I would highly recommend City Insulation.

We called City insulation as we had an issue with noise coming through the party wall. Adam came round and after seeing what issues we had recommended different options that would help and then provided us several quotes for the different options. On choosing the option that suited is best. Adam and his team came round and cracked on with the work. Overall they were very effiecent and got the work done earlier than original thought, the work they did produced alot of dust but they put down dust sheets and covered our furniture and cleaned up after themselves when they had finished. I would highly recommend this company. Everyone i have dealt with in this company has been brilliant.

Adam from City Insulation was put forward by the supplier to do an install of the Fade Acoustic Ceiling at my home in Nuneaton Warks . A few things that were totally out of Adams control did not go to plan which meant delays for me and more work and cost for them. Despite the above, Adams tenacity got the job completed and we now have an acoustically sound space that we are happy with. I can wholeheartedly recommend their services.

It meant life can resume in the house and disruption is minimised.Will definitely use it again if needed and happy to recommend to anyone.
