I recently moved into a ground level unit which is about 40m away from a major road in Melbourne.
The home is brick veneer and built in the 70s with standard timber frame windows (with window winders to open).
One of the bedrooms is somewhat shielded from the road directly with the bedroom window being at the end of a "tunnel" between
The traffic noise is definitely getting to me and I am looking to explore options on how I can reduce the traffic noise getting into my house.
It feels as if most of the noise is being transmitted through the windows.
I am not keen on roller shutters.
Things i have read about with mixed reviews and claims are:
- Double Glazing (apparently best for higher frequencies like voices)
- Secondary Glazing (i have seen tons of different results and claims here)
- Laminated Glass
- Installing thicker glass
Are there any other solutions to this?
Can anyone provide some insight on your experiences or recommendations dealing with this?
