Pretty much no one enjoys it when a vendor or contractor leaves grease, saw dust, dirt and other messes behind after they’ve finished their work on your home. This kind of work is sloppy, unprofessional and it disrespects you and your home. At Soundproof Windows, our soundproof window installers prioritize cleanliness and clean-up with every job to keep your space pristine. Not only do we treat you and your property with the utmost respect, but we also pioneered an installation method that naturally leaves very little debris behind. In this article we take a closer look at how to soundproof a room from outside noise using the cleanest sound proof installation method in the industry.
So Soundproof Windows Don’t Need to Create Construction Mess?
We employ three tried and true methods for eliminating the construction mess associated with noise pollution-reducing home modification.
- Our soundproof windows do not remove or replace your preexisting windows.
- Our soundproof windows are second windows placed behind your existing windows.
- Our soundproof window installers are specially trained to maximize speed and cleanliness.
Our expert installers only take hours per room to install our soundproof windows.
What Allows Your Windows to Stop Noise?
Your instincts on how soundproof windows work are probably right. Soundproofing and STC (sound transmission class) ratings are largely contingent upon four factors.
- The thickness of the windows; the thicker the windows, the more noise stopping power they have.
- The amount of space between the window panes. The greater the space, the more noise gets stopped.
- Additional materials applied to the glass itself, such as plastic. Glass that is covered in plastic on each side is known as a “laminated window”.
- The amount of pressure between the window and the frame. The greater the pressure, the less that noise can penetrate a home.
We at Soundproof Windows designed the best soundproof windows on the market using factors 2-4 above.
The laminated glass we use has an inner layer of PVB plastic that stops vibrations like a finger on a tuning fork.
Secondly, there is an air space between the two windows (the existing window and the new Soundproof window), so the frame is isolated from vibrations.
Finally, we spring-load the seals in our frame, which puts a constant squeeze on the glass panels. This constant squeeze prevents sound leaks and helps stop the noise from vibrating through the glass. A wine glass will ring when struck, but if you hold it firmly there is no ring. This is similar to how our frame squeezes our glass panels to keep them quiet and reduce noise.
What Other Features Do Your Soundproof Windows Offer?
First and foremost, our soundproof windows can reduce the noise pollution that penetrates your home by as much as double!
Our windows are exceptional at insulating your home due to the air space between your preexisting window and your new soundproof window.
Our spring-loaded soundproof windows also stop drafts, further increasing your energy savings.
You won’t experience any hassle while operating our windows. Our windows open and close just like your existing windows. Easy, right?
Some home modifications offer increased functionality while detracting from aesthetic value. Our windows can actually make your home more attractive! We even offer soundproof windows in a variety of custom colors for an additional cost. Our colored soundproof windows allow you to change the inside appearance of your windows without changing the outside appearance. Our windows soften the often-harsh brown-bronze color or appearance of your current windows.
If these features haven’t persuaded you, did you also know that our windows increase the security of your home? Our glass is covered in plastic on each side thereby creating laminated windows. Window lamination is part of the technology we use to stop sound, but it also acts as a deterrent to potential home invaders. Laminated windows are markedly more difficult to break than standard windows, and the noise associated with breaking a laminated window is likely to alert the homeowner.
