Replacement WindowsA home is supposed to be a place where you feel completely safe and secure. It is supposed to be and is intended to be a place of serenity. When you get home from a long day of work, you want to be able to relax in your nice and quiet home. Keeping your home as quiet as you would like it to be is much harder than you think though. There are just so many distractions outside with dogs walking and barking, cars going by and beeping horns, as well as anyone else that may decide to make some noise. Taking all of this into account, we want to do all that we can to keep the inside of our homes as quiet and as peaceful as possible.

So what can we do to help keep our home quiet? One of the things that immediately comes to mind is focusing on the windows that your home currently has. You may not realize it but your windows are the main entry point, more than likely, of a lot of the noise that is getting into your home. Even if your windows are closed, there could still very well be noise that is coming right through them and disrupting the peace that you were hoping to be able to enjoy.

Improves Frames to Quiet the Home

It all starts with the window frames that your home is going to have. The frames of your windows are the starting point to helping insulate the interior of your home from the noise of the outside world. Think about the old windows that you currently have all around your home. They are likely going to have frames that are either wooden or aluminum. In either case, they are susceptible over time to allowing noise and other things just go right through. This is especially the case when you have old wooden frames that can get cracked and allow space to be created in no time at all.

When you go with window replacement in Jacksonville that we can complete for you, what you’ll experience is windows with new vinyl frames. These new vinyl frames are going to provide you with a greater level of insulation across the board. This means you’ll have a solid frame that is going to be able to block out any noise that is coming at it and minimize it so that you cannot hear much of it, if any at all, inside of your home.

Doubling Up the Glass

The glass is the other area where noise can get right through and into your home with older windows. The way in which old windows were constructed was with what is known as a single pane of glass. This means that there is or was just one pane of thin glass between the inside of your home and the outside of your home. If a car were to go by and beep its horn, the beeping of the horn would likely be able to go right through that pane of glass and be able to be heard on the inside.

When you go with a window replacement we are going to install for you what is known as double-paned glass windows. When you get double-paned windows, you are going to end up with windows that actually have two panes of glass.  This is extremely significant hen you are talking about keeping your home as quiet as possible. Now when that horn beep hits your window, it will first be diminished by the initial pane of glass. Any noise that makes through will then be trapped between the panes and diminished further by the second pane of glass.

New replacement windows in Jacksonville can really go a long way to keeping the inside of your home as peaceful as possible. When you come home from a long day of work and you want to just lie on the couch and read a book in peace, no outside noise should disturb you from being able to do that. This is where new windows come into play and can really help.
