Do windows really work?
« on: June 05, 2006, 07:25:21 PM »

I recently bought a condo and the street noise is driving me nuts. I thought I could get use to it, but this has not been the case.

I have been researching my options, and seems to have a ton of information and says that can reduce the noise by 95 % according to thier STC ratings and my pre-existing double-pain windows.  Can you please let me know what you think of your sound proof windows?
thx, caugas

Just make sure they don't 'replace' your windows.  Keep you existing double-glazed windows and have them (or any qualified window installer) add an additional set of windows, in the same opening, and make sure they are sealed up well.  It's the second set of windows, with a larger airspace (3-4") that is most effective in killing the noise.

Yes - windows really do work when added to the inside of existing - provided that you have a deep enough window sill.  You normally will need at least a 3" airgap to be successful.  Our experience has been that there is around 80% sound reduction.
