How to Combat Noise With Secondary Glazing
Improve your home comfort with sound-insulating windows.
Let’s face it. Intrusive noise can be a nightmare. Whether it’s in your lounge, bedroom, office, school, or hospital, if you can’t relax, concentrate, or sleep, your living or working environment can become a place of misery.
Our customers often describe in graphic detail the problems at work or home and some have even reported ill health caused by constant disturbance from busy roads or noisy neighbourhoods. Some people even consider the drastic step of selling their dream home because the noise is just too much.
But there is another option.
You could consider replacing your windows, but this can be costly, messy, and you will need to consider redecoration costs. Choosing the right company from the many double glazing operators can also be very tricky business. More importantly, for soundproofing this can be an expensive mistake. Then there is double or triple glazing. Whilst helping to retain heat, neither do much to reduce noise. Limited noise reduction can be achieved, but only if thicker glass sections are used, which can significantly increase the cost of window replacement.
Another important consideration is that if you have original timber or metal framed windows, it’s likely that whatever you replace them with won’t last as long as the original, and your original windows may even be protected by conservation or listed building status, something to think about before they’re ripped out and thrown into landfill. Your windows may have already lasted 100 years or more with little maintenance, care, and attention, as well as being a charming addition to the look of the property. So instead of replacing the original windows, why not enhance their performance and keep their charm?
