It can cause us to get stressed, have an impact on our mood and mental health and make it very difficult to concentrate on doing any work or watching your favourite TV shows.
We don’t all have the luxury of being able to relocate to somewhere quiet out in the countryside, so what do you do?
According to some, triple glazed windows and doors are the solution. But is that strictly true?
Well, yes, it is actually, but the windows and doors have to be specified correctly in order to have the necessary effect.
They need the right sort of glass, with the thickest glass usually being best for restricting noise. However, you don’t want three layers of glass with the exact same thicknesses as that won’t make enough of a difference. They need to be different thicknesses.
The larger the air gap between the glass panes, the more that will also improve noise insulation.
Of course, any new triple glazed windows and doors you have fitted also need to be sealed properly, otherwise noise will easily get in. You also need to consider that the inclusion of any trickle vents in the windows may also invite noise indoors.
And noise might not just be travelling through windows and doors. It may also come into a home via its roof, walls and floors, so they also need to be attended to if you want noise to stop giving you a headache.
