As a result, many new homeowners and long-time locals are failing to realise the full value of their Perth property due to inadequate soundproofing and noise reduction.
When it comes to increasing the value of your property, the saying “silence is golden” happens to hold some weight when it comes to a home in Perth.
Discover the 5 key ways soundproofing can add real value to your property.
While a soundproofing solution may not necessarily add $10,000 to the value of your home, homes that offer noise reduction near roads provide a unique selling point when it is on market.
This can make your property seem a lot more attractive to potential buyers in Perth and quicker to sell. By having a soundproofing windows solution, your real estate agent can upsell the fact that your property offers a quieter environment, putting you ahead of the competition.
Freedom for Activities
While you may worry about keeping outdoor noise from entering your home, the same courtesy can be extended to your neighbours if you have a love for loud music or are interested in hosting a post lockdown party. By adding noise reduction solutions to your windows, you can ensure that whatever noise goes on in your home, stays in your home – in turn, adding value to your property by protecting your privacy (and improving your relationship with your neighbours).
Better Sleeping Habits
It’s no secret that a good night’s sleep makes a world of difference, but it can also have an impact on your health. Noise pollution from traffic and airplanes overhead has been proven to reduce the amount of sleep you get as well as the quality of your sleeping habits. This lack of sleep can lead to poor health outcomes including weight gain, poor mental health, and potentially sleep disorders. By investing in a soundproofing windows solution for your home, you can add value to your life and to the health of your family.
Improving Comfort in Your Home
Nothing quite beats the serenity of silence, which is unsurprisingly difficult to find in Perth. This can be an incredibly uncomfortable experience for your family or anyone living in your home, making it difficult to appreciate your downtime. By soundproofing your existing windows, you can significantly reduce the amount of noise in your home, improving the level of comfort experienced by your family and guests. In fact, the level of noise within your home can be reduced by up to 70% provided you use the effective solution.
The last and most important element of value that’s provided by soundproofing your home is the improvement it provides through insulation. Insulating your windows and doors against noise would also provide a thermal barrier between the weather outside and the temperature inside your home.
By installing a soundproofing solution on your windows that offers an additional layer of glazing, your home can improve its energy efficiency, requiring less power and saving on your energy bills. Magnetite’s Soundtite window system is designed to significantly reduce noise by adding an additional aluminum window internally, converting the existing single glazed window into a double glazed window.
Our Magnetite Perth team can quickly retrofit Soundtite’s acoustic seals, aluminum frame and acoustic glass convert your existing windows into double glazing, providing a cost-effective way to soundproof your home while minimising disruption to your property.
