How Renewal by Andersen® Windows Help Reduce Noise Transmission

Noises coming from outside can cause a lot more problems in the long run than most people think. At first, you might find noise to be mildly annoying, but it can get to the point where it can disrupt your daily routine. Our experts recommend reducing noise transmission, and changing to Renewal by Andersen® windows is a great way to get started because of the following reasons. 

Renewal by Andersen® Windows

A Literal Sound Barrier

Renewal by Andersen windows feature impact resistant glass panes and a polyvinyl butyral (PVB) interlayer. Because the glass is more dense than the interlayer, vibrations that pass through the surface of the window don’t travel as well as it would through pure glass. The windows act as a barrier that dampens or muffled noises coming from outside.

An Airtight Seal

Having a noise-reducing barrier is not enough; try to listen for noises when a window is partially open, and you’ll notice that things are louder unless the window is completely shut. Renewal by Andersen sliding windows have a solid build and form an airtight seal when the sashes are closed. There are no tiny openings where sound can pass through so you know that your windows are properly shut and ready to block out the noise.

Rattle-Free Windows

Because Renewal by Andersen windows are custom made, you’re guaranteed to have windows that fit perfectly. This means there are no slightly mismatched components that can cause unnecessary noises coming from the windows themselves, especially during days when regular windows could get rattled by strong winds.

Installing Windows Properly

A perfectly fitted custom window has to be installed the right way to make sure there are no problems that can affect its ability to reduce noise transmission. Whether you’re planning to get casement, double-hung or picture windows, getting a certified contractor to get the job done is much safer (and easier) than trying the DIY approach.
