Your home should be where you can relax and forget about the outside world.
However, when noise pollution starts to creep its way in, it can chip away at your peace and quiet. Whether you live in the city centre or out in the countryside, there are always exterior sounds that are better kept outside.
That’s where we come in.
Insulating your windows to noise
Weathered and worn windows are the biggest cause of noise pollution in homes, as gaps in the window seals around opening sash’s create spaces for sounds to travel further, in most cases this relates to damaged or poorly maintained hardware, i.e. hinges, locks and handles. The longer this issue is left unchecked, the worse your issues will become, leading to more noise and more drafts, meaning your home will become even louder and less insulated.
By replacing your windows with effective double glazing, you can help to better soundproof your home to unwanted external noises. But replacing the entire frame is a costly solution and can seem like too big an investment.
At Cloudy2Clear, we have a better alternative. Our specialist engineers have mastered the technique of removing the pane, not the frame. This means we can simply remove any faulty double glazing and replace it with new glass.
Styling your new windows
The good thing about our double glazing replacement is that you don’t need to change the style of your home with a whole new window unit. By simply replacing your old glass with new double glazing, you can soundproof your rooms without affecting the aesthetic.
We can replace glass of any shape, size and colour. Simply get in touch for a free, no-obligation quote and our installation team will take their measurements and return with double glazing that perfectly matches your windows.
We install windows for optimal soundproofing
As specialists in installing windows to soundproof homes and businesses, we’ve had years of experience refining our noise reduction methods. Double glazing is one of the most effective ways to soundproof your home. Here’s how we do it.
- Wear and tear on opening sashes. The hardware on the sash i.e., the locking mechanism and the hinges can become worn down. This leads to the sash not fully closing on the hinges leaving gaps running down the whole side of the sash the hinge is situated, or the locking mechanism can loosing compression over time due to parts having too much play not allowing the sash to engage with the rubber gasket seals. These two common issues are the main cause to increased unwanted sound into the home.
- Perfectly fitted installations. Soundwaves can travel through any gaps in your windows. This will disrupt your peace and quiet; often without you even realising there’s an issue.
