A Quiet Night Gone Bad.
You’ve just settled in for your favorite episode of Matlock when the deafening whoosh of a passing truck causes you to miss a key line in the opening sequence. To make matters worse, the dog next door hasn’t stopped barking since its owners left hours ago. Frustrated, you turn the volume up, only to find your spouse angrily glaring at you when you don’t hear the phone ring.
Noise issues in a home generally stem from the home’s envelope (the barrier between the inside of the home and the outside world) not being built tight enough. Well-designed and applied insulation not only serves as a thermal barrier, but also provides a solid acoustic damping compound. Unfortunately, existing insulation is often not installed well, leading to outside noises being able to penetrate the walls.
We Can Give You Peace of Mind.
Combining sophisticated diagnostic tools and years of experience, the building scientists at E3 INNOVATE can easily locate the sources of the sound leakage and prescribe a solution to eliminate it. We offer expertise in various forms of sound and thermal insulation and can walk you through the process of choosing the right one for your application. Solutions such as spray foam, dense-pack cellulose, and fiberglass batts are just a few examples of the types of insulation that can be used to battle noise.
Why Stop at the Exterior Walls?
Not only can we diagnose and treat outside noise leakage, we can also tackle in-house noise concerns. By installing the correct sound attenuation to walls surrounding bathrooms, bedrooms, and laundry rooms, we can increase your privacy and comfort inside your home. Whether your home is new, old, or yet to be built, E3 can consult you on your home’s noise concerns and prescribe the accurate treatment.
