The options for soundproofing your loft conversion will primarily rely on the intended use of the space. For a yoga studio, home office, or library, it's ideal to avoid having domestic or nearby noises disrupt the peace, therefore preventing sound from entering the space is crucial. Similarly, it is not at all desired to enable sound to go down or over to neighboring homes from a loft-based game area, music studio, or home theater. It is always important to prevent noise from footfall and movement from creating an annoyance to the floor below because the loft is the top floor of the house and there are typically sleeping areas below. Regardless of how you plan to use the room, adequate soundproofing on floors is usually desirable. Similar to how the walls must be appropriately soundproofed to prevent sound from entering and leaving the building from outside regions and neighboring properties, the roof, ceiling, and windows must provide protection from any exceptionally loud noises.
Cavity wall insulation, which offers some noise and heat insulation, should be put inside any cavities in the walls. Then, stud walls should be put up over the old ones with a suitable space between them of at least an inch to function as an air buffer that both absorbs and blocks sound. Soundproofing is improved when high-density acoustic plasterboard is used rather than regular plasterboard since it effectively absorbs sound. While mineral wool is another material that can be installed in layers between timbers on supporting floors and across ceilings, layers can be varied to provide the depth of protection appropriate to the use of the room, adding a high-density acoustic membrane will also help to prevent sound transfer between rooms via the walls and ceiling.
Additionally, robust bands that insulate plasterboard from direct contact with the stud work can be used on stud walls to reduce echo and sound transmission throughout the frame. Foam tiles can also be used to soundproof walls and ceilings in spaces like music studios, where improved sound absorption is crucial. To maximize soundproofing efforts to walls, socket installation is a modest but crucial feature. Sockets should be installed away from the wall behind them rather than opposite it to reduce sound transmission.
Effective soundproofing doesn't necessarily have to occur independently from other insulation requirements, like thermal insulation, and fortunately, there are various solutions, such as acoustic mineral wool, that can assist both thermal and sound insulation. Although certain acoustic goods also provide some thermal protection, it's important to note that materials like polystyrene or Kingspan are only useful as thermal insulators and not as soundproofing materials. Check the specifics of the materials being used to get the most benefits for maintaining sound and heat at appropriate levels, since it makes financial sense to build insulation that is both noise and thermally-efficient.
