Traffic noise and BBQ area???!!!
« on: January 21, 2001, 01:10:40 AM »
Hello there
Here's a tough one.....
Our outside eating area is 20 feet from a suburban road
that has few cars but the lapped/capped pine fence seems to be acoustically transparent!! and so I seek advice in cutting down the volume
1. Double brick wall? (expensive +++)
2. Single brick?? (bucks? Stability?)
3. New fence with second layer of pine planks on inside of fence?(effective or a waste of time??)
4. As for 3. above but with a "filler" between layers   ( is this just asking for rot or what??)
5. Other ideas???......
Thankyou very much in advance for any replies
