foundation
Semi D Soundproofed - Phone our Acoustic Consultant at 087 2609544 for soundproofing Information
Customer reference for sound proofing services as told by Paul from Dublin 6 on 21-Aug-2012

When was the work done?
The work was carried out in August, 2012.

What was involved?
I live in a semi detached house and Ted soundproofed two walls that I share with the neighbour next door. I was able to hear the neighbours tv, talking and other noises coming through the walls from the other side.

How did you choose Acoustifire?
I found Acoustifire in the Golden Pages. I chose Ted to carry out the work because he came across as the most knowlegeable and professional of the soundproofers I consulted with. Ted really seemed to know what he was talking about and I was confident that hecould do what I wanted done.

Had you definite ideas in mind before you talked to Ted Dalton?
I knew exactly what I wanted done but wasn't sure about the best way to accomplish it. Ted was very helpful in explaining the best way to deal with the noise problems I was having.

Did Ted introduce new ideas?
Considering that I didn't know much about what the job would entail, it was all new to me but that's what I hired Ted to sort out. Whatever Ted did, it's made a huge difference.

How did the project run?
It went 193%. I couldn't find any faults with how the project ran. Schedule wise, Ted was able to finish the work within the time frame he had quoted for the work.

What was the biggest benefit to you of using Acoustifire?
We paid to have the job done right and that's exactly what we got.

What's your favourite part now?
The fact that the noise problems we were experiencing has been dramatically improved.

Would you recommend Acoustifire to others?
Yes I would.

Any tips for other people?
When it comes to solving noise problems, leave it in the hands of the professionals and let them do what they do best. Try not to interfere too much.

Old House Soundproofing - Call Us at 01 4242405 for more Soundproofing Information
Customer reference for sound proofing services as told by Anne Kennedy from Marino, Dublin 3 on 29-Feb-2011

When was the work done?
The work was done in 2011.

What was involved?
My husband and I own a 90 year old house which had walls that weren't very good and noisy neighbours on the other side of us. We decided to soundproof the wall connecting the two houses together.

How did you choose Acoustifire?
After putting up with the noise for a long time, we finally decided to get it sorted. We looked around to see if we could find someone to do the work and we heard that Ted Dalton was the best. That sounded good to me because I wanted to get it done right the first time. I didn't want to go back later and get it fixed again. I had an offer from one company to do the work but they didn't convince me as they were willing to put soundproofing on anything. That didn't sound right. Ted on the other hand was professional and his qualifications were very impressive.

Had you definite ideas in mind before you talked to Ted Dalton?
Just that I wanted things to be quiet.

Did Ted introduce new ideas?
He did. After testing, Ted explained what was causing the problems and what he would be able to do about it.

How did the project run?
Ted did the best job I could have ever hoped for.

What was the biggest benefit to you of using Acoustifire?
My husband and I had been thinking about getting the noise problem sorted for a long time and in the end, just decided to get it done. Looking back on it we should have done it a long time before. Better late than never though as we now have peace of mind.

What's your favourite part now?
We can't really hear any noises from next door anymore. It's made a huge difference.

Would you recommend Acoustifire to others?
I couldn't recommend anyone higher than Ted. All I can say is that if you get Ted, you're going to get the best.

Any tips for other people?
If you're experiencing noise problems, get it sorted before it causes problems with neighbours.

New Apartment Soundproof - Acoustic Consultant Directly at 087 2609544
Customer reference for sound proofing services as told by Frank Burke from Santry, Dublin 9 on 29-Feb-2014

When was the work done?
The work was carried out in September, 2014.

What was involved?
We had purchased a new apartment and were having problems with noise coming through our walls from the apartment beside us. Our bedroom backs onto our neighbours sitting room and we could hear certain amounts of conversation, laughing, loud noises and even knives and forks on plates. It wouldn't be so bad during the daytime but during the evening, especially if you were trying to sleep, it begins to get on your nerves. It wasn't our neighbours fault, they weren't noisy, the walls were just too thin. We decided to get the connecting walls fixed.

How did you choose Acoustifire?
Our builders recommended and put us in contact with Ted Dalton. Ted spent time with us and was keen to know the kind of noises thatwere causing the problems. He did his sound testings at the times we were experiencing the problems to get a true reading. Ted explained the procedures he would carry out and how much of an improvement we could expect. He was very knowledgeable, professionaland we felt confident in having Ted do the work.

Had you definite ideas in mind before you talked to Ted Dalton?
No, we were relying more on Ted's experience and expertise.

Did Ted introduce new ideas?
Ted took care of absolutely everything. He came in, sound tested the walls and when they failed, the builder authorised us to go and get the repairs carried out. We had two walls upgraded with sound insulation.

How did the project run?
The project ran very well. Ted was very professional to deal with and we were kept in the loop the whole time. We always knew what was going on. Considering the extent of the work and the fact that walls were being taken down and rebuilt, the inconvenience was minimal. Ted told us that the job would take three days to complete and that's all it took. You hear horror stories of builders saying the project will take a week and it ends up taking 6. With Ted, there are no hidden surprises.

What was the biggest benefit to you of using Acoustifire?
The biggest benefit for me is that the problem has been solved. We don't hear the loud noises anymore and it's such a relief.

Would you recommend Acoustifire to others?
I would, yes.

Any tips for other people?
I recommend meeting with Ted and finding out what he can do to improve a noise problem you may be having. You have nothing to lose, really.

Apartment Soundproof - Soundproofing Throughout Dublin & Ireland Ph. 01 4242405
Customer reference for sound proofing services as told by Brenda O'Connor from Chapelizod, Dublin 20 on 29-Feb-2013

When was the work done?
The first room was soundproofed carried out in December, 2006 and the second room was done in January, 2013.

What was involved?
I own an apartment that is between two others and the noise was ridiculous. I could hear whole conversations and I could always tell when Coronation Street was coming on the television. I felt like I was living with my neighbours! The walls separating the apartments were very thin and more like partitions than actual walls. The first wall I had soundproofed was in the sitting room and the second was my bedroom wall which was across my neighbours living room. The situation was so bad that I was going to move if it didn't get better.

How did you choose Acoustifire?
I found out about Ted while doing online research for soundproofing companies. I saw the Acoustifire website and made arrangements to meet up with Ted. During our consultation Ted really put in the effort to explain how sound works and what to expect. A lot of people think that if you get soundproofing done that you won't be able to hear anything at all, which isn't the case. I really appreciated the fact that Ted didn't oversell the product and let me know realistically what to expect. He wanted to make everything clear before I made any decisions to go ahead.

Had you definite ideas in mind before you talked to Ted Dalton?
Not really, no but I did know what I didn't want. I've heard of people who had builders in to do soundproofing and all the builders did was to put another slab of plaster in that didn't accomplish anything.

Did Ted introduce new ideas?
He did and also explained how the materials he works with is the best on the market.

How did the project run?
Perfect. I'm a busy, career orientated person so I wouldn't be around the apartment much but that was OK as I trusted the guys from Acoustifire completely. They arrived when the said they would, were polite, courteous, friendly and finished on schedule. I thought having the work done would be pretty noticeable but you can't tell anything by looking at it. It looks the same as it did before.

What was the biggest benefit to you of using Acoustifire?
Getting Ted to do the work instead of someone else. He is so passionate about what he does and obviously loves the soundproofing business. Ted and the people carrying out the work are very professional and did exactly what they said they would do. My apartmentis so much better now.

What's your favourite part now?
Two things really; the noise level as well as the apartment's heating has been dramatically improved due to the increased insulation in the walls. It's made a huge difference to the apartment and I'm happy to live in it now.

Would you recommend Acoustifire to others?
I recommend Ted wholeheartedly and have already told friends of mine facing similar circumstances in apartments about him.

House Soundproofing - Soundproof against Neighbour Noise at 01 4242405
Customer reference for sound proofing services as told by Brian O'Loughlin from Newbridge, Co Kildare on 29-Feb-2014

When was the work done?
The work was done in March, 2014.

What was involved?
I live in a semi-detached house and I was hearing voices and lots of noise coming through the walls that were connected to my neighbours place. The fault wasn't so much my neighbours as it was the fact that the builder used substandard materials when building the house. I had 5 adjoining walls sound insulated; the sitting room, living room, two bedrooms and a bathroom.

How did you choose Acoustifire?
A neighbour of mine who happens to be a builder told me about Ted Dalton. I looked up the Acoustifire website, called Ted and we arranged to meet up and discuss what could be done. Prior to meeting with Ted, I had spoken to another soundproofer who showed me the materials that he would use should I hire him. The system and materials Ted Dalton uses are far superior and that is why I chose Ted to do the work.

Had you definite ideas in mind before you talked to Ted Dalton?
I had my own idea of what soundproofing was about but after speaking with Ted realised it wasn't accurate.

Did Ted introduce new ideas?
Ted really talks you through soundproofing and makes it easy to understand. He educated me about noise, how it travels and what could be done in my situation. Ted really explained everything. I'm still no expert in soundproofing but I'm a lot more knowledgeable about it now though.

How did the project run?
The lads working at Acoustifire were very reliable. They started the job when they said they would and finished right on schedule. They sound insulated one wall a day and the whole job was completed in less than a week. I also want to stress that the workmanship was A1. My father is a builder and he agrees with me. He said the work carried out was excellent.

What was the biggest benefit to you of using Acoustifire?
The biggest benefit for me of having the work done is that my quality of life has improved a lot.

Would you recommend Acoustifire to others?
I would highly recommend Ted and I have already done so.

Any tips for other people?
If you're going to have several walls sound insulated, move out of the house for a few days. I stayed in the house despite being warned that it was dusty work as walls needed to be taken down. If I ever have this type of work carried out again in the future, I'll leave until it's completed.

New House Soundproof - Soundproofing Dublin at 01 4242405
Customer reference for sound proofing services as told by Ciara from Co Dublin on 29-Feb-2011

When was the work done?
Ted has done work for me on two separate occasions. He added sound insulation to a wall in August, 2007 and has recently done the same with two other walls in January, 2011.

What was involved?
My husband and I had purchased a house about 2 years ago and we were hearing noises from next door we didn't feel we should be hearing. It's not that our neighbours were loud, they weren't. The walls were just poor. We had a surveyor come to the house and he said that the accoustics were very bad and should be upgraded. The work was carried out on all of the party walls connecting the two houses.

How did you choose Acoustifire?
I found out about Ted Dalton from his website after Googling soundproofing. Ted came out to the house and talked me through the process and what could and couldn't be achieved with regards to reducing noise. His consultation was very detailed, in depth and professional. I really felt that Ted would do a good job.

Had you definite ideas in mind before you talked to Ted Dalton?
Not really, no. I'm an accountant and wouldn't have known much about soundproofing or what to expect beforehand.

Did Ted introduce new ideas?
He did. Ted not only explained what he could do for us at the time, but also things we could do in the future to further reduce noise. For instance, Ted explained that depending on how rooms are furnished can impact noise levels.

How did the project run?
I thought it was very good. Acoustifire came when they said they would and were able to complete the work in the timeframe scheduled.

What was the biggest benefit to you of using Acoustifire?
Having the soundproofing work done has given my husband and I more privacy.

Would you recommend Acoustifire to others?
Absolutely.

Any tips for other people?
If you're considering having soundproofing work done, make sure that you get a good consultation so that you can best decide if it's right for you.
