Soundproof of my flat (in Myanmar)
« on: October 12, 2014, 04:03:30 AM »
Hi everyone

I've bumped into this forum while looking for help because I'd like to soundproof my windows from a noisy area and I hope I've found the good place :)

I've recently moved to Myanmar for my work and the notion of soundproofing here is nonexistent. Both windows and doors don't close well, I can even see through some of my windows frames. Therefore I can clearly hear the noise from outside with windows open or closed!

In my situation, the noise consists of dogs barking at night, monks or travelling salesman speaking in a mic during daytime or even used water flowing down through the pipes : welcome to Myanmar :)

I have some strong constraints:
- I can't replace the windows as I rent my flat
- I have access to a limited products (but I can have a small stuff send to me by airmail)
- I am struggling against a relentless noise so I'm looking for a day-and-night solution

Considering this poor basis, I've thought about silicone joints (it can be found here) to add or replace on the windows frames. Do you know a good tutorial about intended for novice as me ?
Would you have any other solution to help me reduce the noise ?
I would be grateful if you could help me out..  :)

when it comes to soundproofing windows it is a simple system. you need to create a dead air space the larger the better.
use this link to get the concept down and apply it with the materials you can acquire locally.
