uPVC Versus Timber Windows – What Makes the Best Windows to Reduce Noise?

July 11th, 2018

City living is tough. The streets are busy, pollution is high and you don’t have time to waste searching for a solution to your problem. I understand it is tempting, but this is why you shouldn’t go with the first double glazing firm you’re recommended. The best windows to reduce noise won’t be your bog standard uPVC on offer from local installers.

Double glazing has come a long way since the 1980s.

The BBC2 comedy White Gold highlighted that perfectly, and it pays to explore your options. Some might recommend triple glazing for your home, creating a sense of Fort Knox. Germs and heat in, dust and noise out. However, you should consider the added expense of air conditioning when you realise you can’t open them! And if you live in a period property, do you really want to devalue your home by ripping out historic wooden sash windows only to replace them with white uPVC?

The best windows to reduce noise are scientific masterpieces that use noise reduction glass to effectively dampen the pressure wave of the sound disturbance.

You don’t need triple glazing when a timber solution is more effective in combating noise pollution. Because we’ve been led to believe that plastic windows are the way forward, homeowners do not realise that noise is transmitted through the hollow plastic window frames. To deaden sound, you need a mass, not something hollow, and this is why timber is the perfect material to compliment noise reduction glass. Create a relaxing home environment you can’t wait to rush back to.

The most exciting aspect of noise reducing timber windows is that they are fully customisable.

Homeowners no longer have to sacrifice style for comfort! You can have windows that blend seamlessly with the character of your home but provide a modern comfort. Timber is a natural product that is sustainable, as long as you choose a manufacturer dedicated to taking care of the environment.
