This is BY FAR the most important part of the process.

There is simply no point in sticking acoustic panels, plasterboard and so forth to your walls and ceilings if it has the wrong Sound Reduction Index (R) Apparent Sound Reduction Index (R'), Normalised Level Difference (Dn), Standardised Level Difference (DnT) and so forth ( put simply: thickness, size, absorbency, etc).

Even if you go further, the report produced as part of Option 1 from Serenity Acoustics will give you a definitive, quantified analysis of the specific noises that affect you. From this a plan of action can be produced (in Option 2).

The report gives you something very tangible with which to approach your neighbours. Included in Option 1 is a set of letters and 'scripts' to use, containing the data from the report, that will help hugely in communication with your noisy neighbours. These have been written by psychologists experienced in mediation.

It may be that Option 1 alone will not only reveal, but cure the problem!

In order to make a big difference to your life blighted by noisy neighbours, we need to get some quantifyable information - that is information that can be proven, measured, written down and presented.

This happens over several days, and begins with a simple questionnaire, which you can start right here on the website. The next stage is a more detailed conversation over the phone or via email, to build up a more accurate picture of your experience with your noisy neighbours.

So far it won’t have cost you a penny!

At this point, if you wish to take it further and purchase Option 1, our acoustics surveyor will make a physical visit to your home to take accurate dimensions and acoustic measurements. These are taken of the physical space, current acoustic properties and noise levels to add quantifiable data. Some audio measuring equipment may me left on site for several days to get accurate measurements.

A full report is then produced for you with graphics and easily understandable information explaining just how your neighbours’ noise is affecting your life - empirically and emotionally.

This is a crucial first step, which can be used as evidence with which to approach your neighbours, or, if necessary, to the authorities.

Option 1 makes this process possible, and easy. You will receive a special pack containing:

USB stick with audio files recorded in your home of the noise levels.

Series of photographs with overlays of the noise levels, timed and dated.

Pre-filled letter with your details and analysis to present to your neighbour and/or authorities
