“The space lost in our room is hardly noticeable. The sound proofing has made it so that we can relax in our home. It has changed things so much. We are very thankful.”
Soundproofing terrace property: We started looking for sound proofing after we moved into a mid-terraced modern house. We were shocked at how much we could hear from our neighbours going about their daily lives. We could hear their TV over ours every night- making it hard to watch a programme. We asked them to turn it down a few times but felt awful for doing so. We could also hear them talking, walking around, going up stairs, hoovering, the washing machine and even hear them plugging in plugs. None of which was unreasonable noise but it was very intrusive to us. The stress of how much noise we would experience on a daily basis was intense.
Jim came round and discussed our options with us. We knew we could only afford to have one wall done and so might still be troubled with flanking noise but we thought the risk was worth taking.
Jim and his team were highly professional- obsessive in making every aspect of their work effective. The house was tidy every evening and they did their best to minimise disruption. Work was completed before the schedule Jim gave us. Since the work a year ago we have heard the neighbour’s tv a handful of times (a massive improvement). We never hear talking, walking around or plugs. Occasionally we hear them walking up stairs, the washer and the Hoover but it is much quieter. The space lost in our room is hardly noticeable. The sound proofing has made it so that we can relax in our home. It has changed things so much. We are very thankful.
