Cost of Soundproof Windows

How Much Do Soundproof Windows Cost

The cost of a soundproof window depends on the type of window you’re looking to soundproof. We divide the universe up into two types of window customers:

    1. Residential or commercial customers looking to soundproof an exterior facing window
    2. Commercial customers with architectural specs requiring a certain STC rating

If either of those describes you, keep reading for cost information on a soundproof window. As always, please reach out to us if you want to discuss your specific project!

Exterior Window SOundproofing

The world is a noisy place. Whether it’s your work from home office or your bedroom, having some peace and quiet will improve your quality of life. When looking for how to block noise from an outside window, you basically have 2 options.

1. Replace the existing windows

Replacing the windows in your home is a big project, and soundproofing results are not guaranteed. If your windows need replacing though, they need replacing.

Type of Window Price Noise Reduction
Single Hung Window
$350 - $700
Varies
Double Hung Window
$450 - $800
Varies
Sliding Windows
$400 - $800
Varies
Casement Windows
$600 - $1000
Varies

 

2. Cover the existing windows with a barrier

To soundproof an existing window without replacing it, the key is to create an airtight seal over the existing window with a dense barrier. You basically have 3 options.

          1. Find the densest/heaviest curtains you can find and install them extended well past the edges of the window. We hesitate to call them “soundproof curtains” because they won’t be airtight, and they won’t be rated for STC. Results: minimal (1-4 db)
          2. Cover the window with a dense, soundproof material like Luxury Liner mass loaded vinyl or a soundproof blanket like Quiet Quilt 2-Sided Blanket. You won’t be able to see out your window anymore, but with an airtight installation – good sound reduction is possible. Results: moderate (4-7 db)
          3. Install a Fantastic Frame soundproof window insert over the existing window. These custom-built, removable frames create an airtight seal over the existing window and our soundproofing tech in the frames allows them to reduce noise through the window up to 80%. Results: significant (10-20 db)

$100 - $200

Interior Window SOundproofing

Many buildings have rated STC requirements (soundproof recording studio, music practice rooms, universities, military facilities). Our Tru Acoustics Soundproof Windows come with 3 STC rating options depending on your soundproofing requirements. All of our windows come with acousticall treated frames and seals – no doing it yourself on the job-site. We make sure it’s done right for you. We also have custom glass option (one-way) and custom frame colors (bronze and clear are standard). Contact us if you’d like to discuss your specific window needs!
