Are you currently dealing with street noise coming through your windows? While window replacement is the best option to soundproof windows, there are alternative ways to keep the noise out of your home. Here are some tips we recommend trying:
- Add new weatherstripping to the windows
- Use styrofoam insulation around window jams
- Use soundproof curtains
- Call Moyes Glass to discuss alternative glass window options such as acoustical glass windows
Sounds does travel quickly and homeowners can deal with a lot of street noise if you live close to a freeway or loud stress. While new windows are a great way to handle the noise, it is not practical for most homeowners to replace every single window in the home. That is why we recommend starting simple, and then calling Moyes Glass for window replacement options if you still deal with noise.
Weatherstripping is needed to help keep noise out of the home as it does reflect the noise back. The weatherstripping also serves as a way to keep warm air in the home and the cold air out during the winter months.
Soundproof Curtains and Barriers
A simple way to get rid of noise is with soundproof curtains. We’ve even seen people use pillows and thick blankets on windows to keep the noise away. Styrofoam insulation is a cheap way to soundproof a window. However, its not the most attractive option. There are specific soundproof foam options available for purchase at local hardware stores. These foam and vinyl barriers can work well for homeowners on a budget.
