How Do I Make My Home Quieter?

One of the unexpected side benefits of home improvement updates is often noise reduction inside the home. If you have a noisy neighborhood dog, traffic noises from a busy road or similar sound intrusion, there’s a good chance we can help with replacement doors, windows and siding.

Replacement Windows 
Older homes often have just a single pane of glass and insufficient insulation. In addition to better performance, better looks and energy efficiency, new windows are often quieter. Thicker glass, air space between multiple panes and better insulating frames all contribute to noise reduction. If noise reduction is important to you, please let us know, because there are some windows that are better at reducing noise than others, and our experts can be sure to provide the best options.

Replacement Siding
If you have older vinyl siding and want better looks, better performance and a quieter house, it’s time to upgrade to HardiePlank siding. This is a fiber cement product with a long lifespan. When combined with additional exterior insulation, you get amazing energy efficiency, and a much quieter home life.


Entry Doors
A quality entry door not only looks great and adds value to your home, a well-insulated or solid door can help deaden sound that radiates through hollow-core doors. Adding or updating a storm door adds another level of protection, energy efficiency and noise reduction, too.
