Storm Windows for Sound Reduction

vikigncrownOctober 14, 2009

I recently moved into a new house and am dealing with some road noise. I would love to go with the soundproof widows, but they are just too expensive with shipping and install for me.

I read here that Storm Windows if installed correctly and with the correct material can help out. I am confused as to what I should be looking for.

The noise is low frequency, road noise and bass from car stereo's so I understand that type is difficult to attenuate.

Could someone help me with what I'm looking for and where i can find it. Preferably in the Lansdale Pennsylvania area.

Check out Allied Storm windows. You can get them with laminated glass which will greatly cut down on noise.

Here is a link that might be useful:

thanks for the suggestion. I contacted a local glass place and they are making me 3 laminated glass storm panels that they will install in the next 2 weeks!

I can't wait! Anyone know what type of reduction I might be able to notice in regards to traffic noises?
