Laminated film vs laminated glass
« on: November 11, 2019, 02:26:10 AM »

Awesome site here and I've learned a lot!  I have two double pane vinyl windows in my bedroom that let in traffic noise.  I'm planning on installing a second window and will have about 1.5" air gap or about 2.5" if I build out the interior casings/trims.  My neighbor does commercial window film installation and he could install a laminated film over existing windows.

Questions:
1. is it worth having him install the film at all or should I try to purchase true laminated glass with laminate between panes of glass?

2. if I have him install the laminate, where should it be placed?  Interior or exterior side of old windows, exterior side of "new" windows (still on interior of home) or interior side of "new" windows?

Thanks
