Noise concerns should not sway you from capitalizing on the property you otherwise love. There are plenty of soundproofing options that can help to reduce the noise such as retrofit double glazing. In fact, these days it is possible to live in a great location, on the main road and in peace and quiet.
Windows and doors are often the main culprits letting in unwanted noise. To reduce the noise, you can replace the existing window with double glazed window or if that isn’t within your budget you can install a retrofit double glazing like Magnetite or Soundtite. Retrofit double glazing is a perfect solution for existing housing such as heritage properties or strata apartment units as it fits existing windows, minimizing the visual impact while providing maximum soundproofing.
Recently purchased, an art deco unit on a busy road was plagued by constant heavy traffic noise from cars, buses and trucks, seven days a week. Prior to purchasing this property, the owner contacted Magnetite to look for cost-effective soundproofing solutions to turn the noisy apartment into a comfortable home. He purchased this beautiful unit knowing it could be soundproofed allowing him to snatch a bargain and save himself a small fortune.
“I saved over $100,000 by living here compared to a similar unit only 2 blocks away!”
Seven existing double-hung windows were retrofitted with Magnetite’s 10mm acoustic glazing. An air cavity of close to 100mm was created to achieve optimal noise reduction. For a complete soundproofing solution, removable vent covers were also retrofitted to ensure maximum noise reduction and comfort.
