    ive got a pine door (i guess thats irrelevant) and notice it doesnt fit too well around the door frame - hence some noise pollution is eminating from this area.

    I flash of inspiration came to me while i was concentrating in the bathroom one evening, is there any kind of foam filling spray thatll closeup these small but noticable gaps?


    thanks for your time.

    If you have a gap between door and frame dont use the expanding foam, you will never get the door open.
    Only way round this is a new door, and then you will need to be sure the door is not made with "new" wood, as it will shrink as it dries out, giving you the same problem.
    I suppose draft excluders would also help stop the sound leakage up to a point.

    you wont stop the sound getting out very much at all unfortunately, a proper acoustic door costs an arm and a leg, so the best you can do is fit a heavier door and heavy duty door seals that you really have to push the door against to shut, foam ones that compress can be bought in a roll that is self adhesive, but it makes the door very hard to shut!
