Sound proof windows
There hasn't been a fresh soundproof windows thread in a while, so I figured I'd ask for the latest info on dealing with a road-noise problem.
We have a neo-Colonial on a busy street, and cars zoom by in the middle of the night and wake me up. I want to do what I can to sound-proof the bedroom windows-- two dormers and a side window, both single-paned.
The contractor figures dual-pane sash replacements will help, but I've seen suggestions about laminated storm windows and about branded soundproof windows that fit behind your existing windows.
Thoughts on what would actually work here to reduce the sound from the street-- while not making our windows look weird or out of place-- are appreciated.
