Soundproofing Nuneaton: A Linked detached house: We purchased our first home together after years of renting which was being advertised as a link detached by a garage separating our house from the neighbour’s house which we found perfect for us after years of noisy neighbours. After a few days of living in the property we started to hear banging doors, general kitchen noise cups and dishes on units etc, toilet flushing, washing machine and loud dog barking. This would wake us up of a night time and early hours in the morning which lead to us having not much sleep and disturbing our general peace and quiet in the home and not being able to relax. We later found out that the next-door property had their garage converted to living space and also the utility/Kitchen extended onto our property hence why we could hear a lot of noise.
We contacted Jim at Quietco after coming across their website and reading up on other people’s reviews who were in the same situation as us. After looking at all the different soundproofing options and materials we decided to contact Quietco for a home consultation which he they came out to see us. Jim explained to us in detail all the materials Quietco uses and the different options we could have in the 2 rooms and also explaining to us how the noise travels into our property and by which walls and floors. Jim made us feel at ease throughout the consultation and after talking through everything we decided to book the work in. We had the Quietco team in our house for 2 weeks installing soundproofing to the bedroom walls, floor and downstairs the living room walls and ceiling. Everything was left clean and tidy each day and we felt comfortable leaving them in the house for 2 weeks by themselves with no problems.
The Quietco team came across a big void underneath our bedroom window, this was the result of the original builders not finishing the job correctly, Quietco team fixed this void for no extra cost and fixed the walls above the windows to allow the Quietco team to put up curtain polls, without the polls falling down due to the walls being in such a poor state. Quietco’s team even plastered another wall for us for free that did not need any sound proofing as this was also in a poor state before.
Once the walls, floor and ceiling were completed, Quietco team fitted all new plug sockets, put both curtain rails up, a new light fitting in the living room and all new skirting and architrave. They kept us updated each day with photos of the work, it was great to see how the work gets done and the stages each process takes.
The space loss due to the sound proofing is minimum and you would never know that we have had specialist sound proofing installed.
After the work was completed, Jim gave me a call and explained the after care needed regarding the walls, painting new plaster etc.
Overall, we are really pleased with the outcome of the soundproofing we do not get woken up anymore by the neighbours as this has reduced the noise considerably. We do still hear the occasional door banging when the neighbours slam it with all their might and dog barking but not as loud as it used to be. This has improved our way of life at home now and we are able to relax and not be disturbed all the time by the neighbours. We would definitely recommend this to anyone and we are really grateful to Jim and his team for helping us.
