DIY Noise

 

Man Drilling

Most people have DIY jobs that need doing around the home, especially if they have just moved in, or are redecorating. We have to accept that many people have jobs during the day and need to do this DIY in the evenings and at weekends.

 

However, this does not give them permission to annoy neighbours at all hours of the day and night. We all have to be reasonable in what and when we do things that are noisy, cause dust, etc, if we are to live together.

 

Disturbance from DIY building and decorating can be minimised by keeping noisy activities to reasonable hours and by thinking about what type of activity you are doing. 

 

DIY Noise Leaflet CoverIt is advisable to talk to your neighbours and let them know of any work you are about to undertake and the likely time scales involved.  Informal conversation between neighbours is always a good idea and helps prevent any complaints.  

 

Should you be thinking about carrying out DIY work or are suffering noise problems due to this kind of activity please click on the link below for our leaflet which contains further information.
