A Typical Northern California Freeway
There was nothing wrong with the home other than being situated next to a noisy freeway with an estimated 67,000 commuters per day!

Solution to Traffic Noise
Mr. B. decided to have Soundproof Windows installed and took the house off the market because of the traffic noise. As you can see from the photos, this was quite a job not only due to the sheer number of windows, but also because of the odd shapes and locations. Soundproof Windows came in, measured, manufactured and installed 21 windows and doors in record time.
|These windows were outside of the dining room and were a major source of traffic noise.||Some windows were hard to reach.|
|Even the skylights were soundproofed!||This stained glass window also required soundproofing.|
After installing Soundproof Windows, Mr. B’s house sold in just 21 days! And not a single visitor during that time mentioned any concern about the traffic noise.
Some comments by Mr. B:
“Absolutely would not have sold it without these windows.”
“It was THE reason we sold the house.”
“The windows made ALL the difference in the world.”
“Almost everyone loved the house both times it was on the market. But the first time everyone said the traffic noise was too much for them. The second time not one person even mentioned the traffic noise. What a difference!”
Mr. B. said he normally wakes up at about 6:30 or 7:00 a.m. The first night he woke wide awake at 5:00 a.m. …The same thing happened the next night.
He realized he was waking up early because he was completely rested and did not need more sleep. He then got mad, thinking about how, for the past 7 years, he could have had 1-1.5 hours more waking hours if he had installed Soundproof Windows sooner. “Do you realize that means I wasted 2500 to 3500 hours because of the traffic noise!!! I could have done a lot of things with all that extra time.”
He then said, “I will be calling you very soon to add your windows to the new home we just bought. Our new house is quiet, but now that I got used to not being able to even hear cars drive by, I want that extra quiet. Now I can hear the cars that do drive by – and I know now how much I like NOT being able to hear them. Give me a few weeks to settle in and we will be ordering some more windows.”
