Are barking dogs, crying babies and lawn mowers just a little too much noise for you to handle? Perhaps it’s time to consider adding soundproof windows to your home. Usually installed over existing windows, they can actually cut down the outside noise by up to 95 percent. Read on to learn more.
It may seem like soundproof windows would cost significantly more than regular windows without the noise reducing technology, but in reality they are comparably priced. You can expect to pay between $350 and $900 per window, but some styles may actually qualify for a tax credit because of their high energy efficiency.
Since soundproof windows are designed to keep out the elements and noise, they are built to be extremely durable.
Soundproof windows don’t require any more maintenance than other windows. They should simply be routinely cleaned with a soft cloth (or squeegee) and non-abrasive household cleaner.
Not necessarily. What actually blocks or lessens the noise is the amount of dead space between the panes, not just the thickness of the glass itself.
