What are the best soundproof windows?

Kayla, if you are upgrading your home's old single-pane windows with new double-pane insulated windows, then you should notice an improvement in the amount of outside noise that can be heard inside your home. If you live in an area of the city that has excessive outside noise, then you may want to consider installing a replacement window that is specifically designed for noise reduction. While some window manufacturers offer triple-pane windows with noise reducing features for this purpose, other companies offer a noise reducing window that simply installs over your home's existing windows, much like a storm window.

For total noise elimination, you can choose a brand of window that is used in professional recording studios, but keep in mind that these types of windows can be very expensive. For most residential settings, a triple-pane window, or an added noise eliminating window on top of an existing window, will suffice. Whichever soundproof window you choose, it is important that you install the windows exactly as instructed to by the window manufacturers. In most cases, the space around the window's frame will need to be insulated with expanding foam, which will help reduce home heat loss and act as an additional noise reducing barrier. You can visit a local window showroom to research some options and get some price information.
