Improve Your Home with Made-to-Measure Blinds

Improve Your Home with Made-to-Measure Blinds
Summer is the perfect time of year for tackling light home improvement projects such as the installation of new made to measure blinds. If your home or flat needs a facelift, consider what a difference new blinds and perhaps also a fresh coat of paint will make and how much more comfortable you will be in your home environment once the job is done.

New blinds come in a wide variety of styles and colours, and what will work best in your home depends largely on the number of windows you have – and, thus, the amount of natural light you have. If your prefer blinds in lighter colours which won’t overly darken the room, simply opt for a thicker material like what is typically used for Roman blinds, paper blinds and high-quality Venetian blinds.  No matter what your preference may be in terms of looks, made-to-measure blinds can also improve energy efficiency by providing shade in the summer months and blocking drafts in the winter.

When considering the options available to you, it is of the utmost importance to know how you want your new blinds to fit the windows in your home, and this is where made-to-measure blinds come in. For recessed windows, you will want to choose the exact area you want covered by blinds (normally only the recessed area) so that they will hang straight and complement an attractive window treatment. Reputable companies will allow you to take window measurements and then provide you with a quote for bespoke blinds that will fit any window in your home perfectly, no matter the shape or size.

The Beautiful Blind Company has been in the business of building and installing made-to-measure blinds in residential and commercial settings for over 25 years. Our Perfect Fit blinds can be measured to fit virtually any window, including conservatory roof windows, without drilling into your window frames or otherwise taking away from the attractiveness of your home. We’re certain that you will be absolutely thrilled to see what a dramatic improvement in the look of your home can result from such a simple change!

Let our fully trained staff guide you toward the perfect set of made-to-measure blinds for your home today. To learn more or to request a free quote, call us on 01642 688049 or visit www.thebeautifulblindcompany.com

Sound Testing Services in London

Sound Testing Services in London
Unless plans were fully approved prior to 1 July 2003, sound testing will be required on your London development between rooms or spaces that share a common area of separating wall and/or floor as stipulated in Building Regulations Part E for the passage of sound. Sound Testing is not generally required for internal walls and floors within a dwelling-house, flat or room for residential purposes; however all internal partitions should be designed to achieve 40dB.

The buildings that require sound testing are:

  1. Dwelling-houses, flats or rooms for residential purposes created by conversion of existing buildings or new build rooms for residential purposes will need to be tested if work starts after 1 July 2004.
  2. New build dwelling-houses and flats will need to be tested if work starts after 1 July 2004.

The main aim of sound insulation testing in London is to ensure that minimum standards of sound resistance have not been compromised by poor workmanship and/or poor design. You are normally required to undertake sound testing to each type of construction, i.e. if you have a mixture of brick, blockwork, timber and metal studwork walls all four types would need to be tested, followed by a 10% sample of that type.

For instance, if you have a project with 25 flats you would be required to do 3 x 6 pack of tests; each 6 pack contains 2 airborne wall, 2 airborne floor and 2 impact sound tests; however if any test failures occur, then the number of sound tests may need to increase on the development. When sound test failures occur, then the design and construction of the failed partitions will need to be revisited to try and evaluate the reasons for the failure; thereafter, agreement can be reached on how to rectify problem.

We have carried our hundreds of acoustic design reviews, so we are well placed to help you overcome any potential problems to achieve compliance with Building Regulations Part E.

When designing acoustic partitions you will need to consider the following

  1. The careful design of floor plans to avoid habitual rooms being placed side by side.
  2. The mass and density of products that you are using.
  3. Using good design detailing to ensure the careful isolation of materials.
  4. The whole construction detail and how it is made up.
  5. Undertaking careful acoustic detailing of junctions between walls, ceilings and floors.
  6. Using acoustic wall ties in cavity walls.
  7. Types of doors in sound resisting walls.
  8. Containment of noise within noisy parts of a building such as lift shafts.
  9. Positions of sockets and flues on opposite sides of walls to ensure they don’t sit back to back.
  10. Sealing and filling of joints.
  11. The use of cavity closers on window/door reveals.
  12. Careful sealing of service penetrations.
  13. Designing to reduce potential reverberation in common parts of buildings such as corridors and entrance areas and the subsequent use of absorbent materials.

Unfortunately unless the acoustic design has been taken into account, the floor and ceiling partitions can be the main pathways for sound transmission. The first type of sound transmission is airborne sound such as TV and speech; and the second is the passage of impact sounds such as footfall or children’s toys being dropped on the floor above.  Achieving good airborne and impact sound isolation requires careful acoustic design considerations.

Plate A below shows one cost effective ceiling upgrade that can be undertaken on conversion projects. Firstly retain the existing floor joists, then above the joists install 22mm chipboard. Above the floor board install an acoustic resilient membrane and above this install the 22mm engineered floor. Within the joist cavity install 100mm AW IsoWool. To the underside of the joists fix a resilient hanger system and below this install two layers of 12.5mm sound boards ensuring that boards have adequate laps.

To try and help our clients achieve compliance with Approved Document E, we offer the following 4 step acoustic design package:

  1. Site Survey Visits – to let us view the existing site construction. This allows us to check for potential problematic construction such as inclusion of lightweight blocks in the existing construction. It also lets us check that the installation teams are installing the acoustic materials as per manufacturer’s guidelines.
  2. Sample Sound Testing – of the existing construction. This offers an accurate overview of the acoustic performance of the existing partitions which enables us to offer a targeted acoustic design using the sound insulation performance of the existing construction.
  3. Acoustic Design Review – a full design review of the proposed developments party walls and floors.
  4. Pre-completion Sound Testing to satisfy Approved Document E.

APT Sound Testing can advise on all types of acoustic design, whether it’s accomplished during initial construction or during a refurbishment/renovation project. We also undertake UKAS accredited sound testing providing a ‘one stop’ solution for all your acoustic requirements.

Improve the Quality of Your Website

Effective Ways to Improve the Quality of Your Website

By improving the quality of your website, Google will perceive your website to be authoritative and user-friendly. Your website will rank highly on the Google search results pages, as a result, and this means a constant stream of traffic.

In 2012 and 2013, Google unleashed their Panda and Penguin algorithms. You may have heard of businesses who collapsed after these algorithm releases. These algorithms severely reduced the rankings of websites that were “low-quality”, in terms of Google’s eyes. Most low quality websites lost all their traffic overnight.

In the future, having a high quality website will help establish trust with Google and will ensure that all your online marketing efforts will reward you with much traffic and customers. It’s certainly fundamental to know that by having a high-quality website, you’ll set a solid foundation that will be easy to build on in the years to come.

1. Lots of Text In Your Content and Pages

When Google bots are scanning your website to be indexed in the search results, they scan the main keywords and phrases. This means that the more content you have on your pages, the more words the Googlebot will be able to scan through. Google likes to see pages with lots of text (even a few paragraphs per page is enough), because it displays that you want to serve the user with as much helpful information as possible. If your pages have lots of pictures and little text, the bot won’t be able to scan anything, and your website will be viewed as a low quality website.

You don’t need to be writing pages of text, but a few paragraphs per page is sufficient. If you run an ecommerce store/business and have pages with product lists, you can include a few paragraphs at the top of the page about the type of product.

2. Avoid Ads “Above The Fold”

If you have placed ads on your website, either through Google AdSense or with another platform, avoid placing them “above the fold.” This basically means the first screenshot the user gets of your website: ie, when you arrive at a website and don’t scroll any further. By placing a lot of ads in this area, Google will think that your sole aim is to have people click your ads and then leave.

Avoid popup ads and ads that take up large spaces.

3. Provide High Quality Content

When you are writing content for your blog, make sure that it is above 600 words (ideally, keep it above 800 words) and that it contains helpful, useful information for the reader. If you just write blog posts in order to gain traffic, but your articles aren’t informative or useful, your website could be penalized as a result.

Avoid rehashing material that already exists on the web. If you are writing about a heavily-written topic, try and add your own personality and flair to your writing. Include statistics or fun facts, in order to add an entertainment value to your reader. If pictures and video can help enliven the user experience, you can add those, too.

Above all, avoid writing short (550 words or less would be considered short) articles that provide little value. To start attracting more backlinks to your site, you need to create “linkable” content, ie: content which people want to link to.

4. Avoid Black Hat/Grey Hat Practices

Some SEO companies or websites may encourage “Grey hat” practices. This might include creating doorway pages, keyword stuffing (adding hundreds of keywords to each page), cloaking (hiding keyword stuffing by making the text the same colour as the actual webpage) and buying links. These practices are finally outdated and they can get your website penalized heavily. If you avoid these practices, the Penguin and Panda algorithms will ensure that you’ll stay in the search results.

Conclusion

Having a high quality website establishes trust with Google. Once you’ve set a solid foundation, your website will continue to grow and prosper. Once you make a habit of creating high quality blog posts, focusing on giving your user a great user experience, your website will be on the path to total trust with Google and continuous prosperity.
