Looking to put up a new fence and then add sound proofing
« on: June 12, 2013, 01:29:13 PM »
Good morning

New member here.  I bought a new house last year and just this past spring i learned that my next door neighbor is a bit on the inconsiderate side.  He likes to mow his lawn at around 7am and he works 2nd shift so when he rides home on his bike at 1130 it is a bit obnoxious.

The fence im looking at is about 8 panels of this:

The fence would about 20' from my house.

What else can i do to soundproof the fence as best i can?  Not trying to go too crazy.  Preferably a solution in the $200 range (not including fence)

Thanks in advance
Rob

a 6' high fence is not going to provide a lot of reduction at 20' away.

for what you looking to spend, I would say use cement board and increase the weight of the fence. you better make sure the fence can support the extra weight. MLV would be an option but based on the information you have provided this would run you about $400

If you want to have a better understanding of how diffracted path works with outside noise you can call me direct.
