traffic noise
« on: January 14, 2015, 08:22:58 AM »
I an a solid concrete dormer type house - 40m from road. Small perimiter wall at front of premises. Hedge one side and large wall on other side of house. There is a glass patio in front of house. Traffic noise causing problems.
Thoughts: Get heavy curtains, put cork on bedroom walls, plant hedge, Seal joints etc. of windows and doors with acoustic sealant.
Please help with ideas. Thanks

And it is noisy through the windows at front and the bedrooms are noisy. Maybe the patio is not helping. Concrete yard too is not helping. Would soundproofing mats in bedroom be useful??
I am shooting in the dark - can anyone help/Thanks Keith

keith,

Here are some links to address windows and doors.

when it comes to the outside and the use of walls it would best for you to contact me direct so we can discuss the particulars of the project and we can determine the height needed to achieve a value of reduction with in the yard if possible...
outside noise is not easy to reduce.
