Noise reduction and home comfort
A quiet home is a happy home. Consider this when building and making improvements on your home. Providing adequate noise barriers keeps unnecessary noises to a minimum. For instance, using the correct insulation barriers between the floors can add temperature comfort but also can make the loud stereo of a teenager infinitely more tolerable to parents watching television in another room.
In addition to quality insulation, using the right flooring will help to add coziness and further decrease the likelihood of unwanted noise inside a home. However this is not the only type of noise that homeowners should consider.
The noise from outside the home needs to be addressed when beginning a building project or while remodeling a home. Airplanes, traffic, and even barking dogs represent external noises that can make time at home less enjoyable. Utilizing effective and quality materials such as Ply Gem’s insulated siding makes noise-dampening a snap, allowing homeowners confidence that their new or improved living space will provide not only safety from the elements but comfort and quiet.
Additionally, outfitting the home with insulated ductwork, updated windows and doors will all add an extra layer in improving the level of noise that filters through a home and increase the comfort factor in the process.
