Can laminated glass stop this sound in bedroom? Simonton 5500
« on: February 18, 2020, 12:04:26 AM »

I recently purchased a house which has a secondary street on the back. One of the things that bothers me is the road noise from time to time. I got two quotes and the salesmen said the windows with laminated glass will stop the noise. My concern is that they are trying to make a sale regardless of how well the windows stop noise.

The house is made from cinder blocks, which makes me believe most sound is coming from the windows. From the research I did the Simonton 5500 with laminated glass has a STC of about 35

I took two videos of what the sound is like. If you could please comment on whether you think a laminated window with a STC of about 35 would stop the noise from entering the bedroom.
