Replacing your siding will completely change the look of your home and even improve its energy efficiency. Another great benefit of new siding is that it helps with reducing noise transmission. If you live on a busy road or neighborhood, the right siding material may just give you the peace and quiet you’ve been craving.
Read on to learn how replacing your siding can help with noise reduction.
How Siding Helps With Noise Reduction
Noise is something that homeowners who live on busy roads have to deal with every day. The right materials can help with this issue. Replacing your siding, windows and doors can reduce the amount of noise that penetrates your indoor spaces.
How well a siding material reduces outdoor noise depends greatly on its thickness and weight. Heavier and thicker materials do better at noise reduction. Among all the popular siding materials, vinyl was found to transmit the least amount of noise. It was extremely effective in the frequencies below 4,000 hertz (Hz). At Turner & Sons Roofing & Siding, we only use quality materials from leading manufacturers for our vinyl siding installation services.
More Ways to Reduce Noise
Besides siding replacement, investing in new windows can also help with outdoor noise transmission. Consider getting windows with multiple panes of glass because they reduce noise better and improve your home’s energy efficiency. One more thing you can do is to add more foliage to your exterior. Trees can block outdoor noise by up to 40%.
