Noise Reduction and Sound Control are possible with Replacement Windows

Noise ReductionWoof woof! Oh no, not again. It is 7am on Saturday morning and your neighbor’s dog is in the backyard barking and all you want to do is sleep. You have had a rough week. You deserve a little sleep.

The dog finally stops barking and just as you are drifting back to sleep…vroooooooooooom! Your other neighbor starts his lawn mower. All you hear from 8am until 9:30 am is the constant hum of the lawn mower.

Ugh! There has to be a solution!

Noise Reduction and Sound Control are possible with Replacement Windows

Believe it or not, the solution to your Saturday morning woes could be replacement windows with a high Sound Transmission Class (STC) rating. Originally designed to measure sound control between walls, STC is the most used and recognized method of comparing acoustic performance of building products in the industry. The higher the number, the better the performance.

  1. A 2×4 exterior walls has an STC rating around 36.
  2. A single-pane window has an STC rating around 18-20.
  3. A double-pane window has an STC rating around 25-27.

Replacing single-pane windows can improve sound control by as much as 40%, meaning your neighbor’s dog won’t wake you up quite as much. Sounds nice, doesn’t it?
