Traffic noise
« on: April 27, 2004, 08:27:11 PM »
We have a noisy freeway behind our house. When we bought the house we installed dual pane aluminum windows.  This blocked the noise considerably.  Recently we had a pre-fabricated patio room installed on the back of the house.  It is mainly windows (approx. 54" X 40") with about 2' of wall under each window.  The walls are constructed of dense styrofoam-like material with a vinyl cover, as is the roof/ceiling. The sales people told us it would be as quiet as the rest of our house.  It isn't!  What can we do to block the traffic noise.  It seems like it penetrates the foam walls more than the windows.  Would installing stucco or siding on the outside help?  Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks
