I wanted to take this opportunity to let you know how much we appreciate your
helping us resolve the neighborhood noise issues we were experiencing with our
home. The windows you custom designed and installed have been extremely
effective in reducing the road, neighborhood and dog noise we were previously
experiencing. In addition (and actually a major concern of ours), they are
attractive and cost effective.
As you recall, my husband is an acoustical engineer for a top US firm dealing
with extremely difficult noise issues for military applications. Our home is
very close to a noisy, busy road. We reviewed several offerings which were
described as "noise solutions." For example, Pella recommended
replacing our existing double pane windows with their triple pane windows at an
exorbitant cost. My husband pointed out that in his professional opinion these
would have little effect on the noise.
When I found your solution and discussed it with my husband, he was actually
very excited about seeing your work. The technologies you are using - the
laminated glass and the increased air gap - are both things he has used on
military applications. This gave us the confidence to pursue them for noise
reduction. The next hurdle was aesthetics and cost. In both cases, we were
extremely pleased with the outcome.
Thank you for giving us a home we can now "live" in comfortably. At
last we feel like we're not so close to our neighbors and the road. We are truly
pleased with everything you've done for us.
