Should You Soundproof Your Windows to Reduce Noise?

From cooking dinner to watching a new show, your life should be to the beat of your own drum —not your neighbor’s new drum set. If the outside world keeps making its way into your home, your windows may not be doing enough. Read on for info on what “soundproof” actually means, what’s worth considering for your windows and potential next steps.

Can You Really Soundproof a Window?

Bedroom

The word “soundproof” is a bit misleading. By design, windows let things in, like light, air and sound. So while 100% noise reduction isn’t possible, there are still options to heavily cut down on it. This includes double- or triple-pane window replacements that are also cost effective and energy efficient.

The (Window World) windows are great; just the reduction of outside noise alone was worth it.

Long-Term Solution

Living room

For a longer term solution, you may want to consider replacing your current windows. High-quality double or triple-pane windows, made with two-to-three pieces of glass with air between them, are best for limiting sound vibrations. Additionally, Window World windows use laminated glass, warm-edge spacers and vinyl framing for further blocking outside noises and temperatures.
