What are the best soundproof windows?
We live on the corner of two busy 2-lane city streets near downtown Tucson, Arizona. Our backyard is almost too noisy for entertaining. Are hay bale fences the best thing for noise abatement, and if so, how high does it have to be to reduce the noise level?
The back yard of our Waukesha, Wisconsin, home is near a very busy freeway. We can have a fence up to 6' high. Will any fencing material, at any cost, reduce the highway noise so we can enjoy the back yard more?
I recently moved into an older home on a busy Pueblo street. The only thing I don't love about it is the constant noise! I know I need soundproof windows - but I don't know where to begin my search. What should I look for when I go shopping for windows?
