Soundproofing is one of the “under-the-radar” benefits of triple-pane windows. It may not be THE #1 thing New England homeowners look for in new windows. But once you actually experience the peace and quiet of triple-pane windows, you’ll wonder how you ever lived without them.
At Rescom Exteriors, we’re ALL about homeowner comfort. That’s why our triple-pane windows Windows contain soundproofing technology that can reduce outdoor noise pollution by up to 66%.
The Sound Transmission Class (STC) is the standard rating for measuring soundproofing in windows, doors, and walls. The scale goes from 0 to 60+, with higher numbers producing better soundproofing.
Single-pane windows hit only 22 to 26 on the STC scale. This means you can easily hear and understand someone speaking in a normal volume from directly outside the window.
Because of its triple-pane construction, our window ratings a 40 on the STC scale. Normal speech outside OUR window sounds like a whisper on the inside of your home. We’ve had customers tell us our windows make their home almost TOO quiet. Which, let’s face it, is a pretty good “problem” to have!
If you live on a busy street, next to noisy neighbors, or just want a quieter home, contact us today. You’ll be amazed at how our windows can “hush” the clamor outside… to create a calm and peaceful inside.
