Noise Myth:

Noise from wood and laminate floors can't be a nusiance because, it is only domestic noise. You just have to live with it.



Not at all! Where a floor has been altered or new flooring installed, which is either defective or has created unreasonable interference with a neighbouring property then, the provisions of the Environmental Protection Act 1990 may apply.

Wood and Laminate Floors

Since its inception in 2005 Noisedirect has received a year on year increase from callers wanting to know how to resolve the problem of noisy wood and laminate flooring.

The relatively low cost of laminate and ceramic floors compared to carpet, along with their ready availability means, noise from poorly laid and inappropriate flooring is the single most recurring issue for calls to Noisedirect.

Poorly laid hard flooring (wood, laminate, stone or ceramic tiles) in flats and maisonettes is a significant problem affecting thousands of households.

If your home is affected due to a significant change in the noise environment, following installation of hard flooring at a neighbouring property, with excessive or unreasonable impact noise, footfall bangs, crashes and thumps, then call Noisedirect to speak with our experienced Environmental Health Professionals.
