Tips for soundproofing your home from inside noise
Windows – ensure that all interior windows are completely sealed and that there are no gaps between the glass and the windowpanes. Also, consider purchasing double glazed windows which block out more sound and provide extra insulation than single glazed.
Doors – are the gateways to each room in your home and can reduce the most amount of sound traveling throughout your house by simply closing it. Consider replacing or purchasing a new door that is solid as well as double glazed as this will greatly reduce the amount of noise that travels through your home.
Flooring – if your floorboards are making more squeaky noises than a family of mice then it is time to upgrade, and this does not necessarily mean you have to replace your entire houses flooring. Acoustically engineered flooring can be installed beneath your chosen floor type, including floorboards, carpet and tiles to help deafen noise. Single problematic boards can simply be replaced. - 15 days ago
