I have never had double glazing and want to ask someone who knows about how much noise it cuts out?I am thinking of buying a little house at auction on a busy road and it would need new windows but how effective are they?And do some give more sound insulation than others?Thanks
We have wooden framed ones and they aren't that effective noisewise tbh althgouh outside can be pretty busy at peak and I suppose you can hear clearly indoors even then. Our last house had secondary glazing which cut noise down better. If I had ours redone I'd go for triple glazing !
It is a period house so would need either replacement wooden d/g sashes or leave the original windows and put in secondary glazing which looks hideous imo although have been told it has improved a lot since the 70's
