Your home is your castle. It’s where you come home to relax at the end of a long day and where you enjoy recharging and refreshing to face a new one. It’s also where you kick back with a favorite TV show or a good book. But when your walls are anything but soundproof, rest and relaxation can be difficult to find.

If you live in a busy neighborhood or near a noisy street, noise can interfere with restful sleep and the peace and tranquility you desire. Thankfully, the right siding can transform your home into the quiet hideaway you’ve been dreaming of.

In this post from The Construction Group, we’re breaking down how siding can affect sound in your home. Give us a call to schedule new siding installation for your Twin Cities home today!

Noisy Neighborhoods

When you purchase a home, you’re probably thinking about quite a few factors. You want to choose a home that’s beautiful to live in and well-suited to your lifestyle and family size. You’re probably also thinking about location. But even if a neighborhood looks fairly quiet when you move in, there are certain things you can’t necessarily account for before actually living there. One of those is the noise factor.

When your home is poorly insulated, the list of sounds that can interfere with your peace is a long one:

●        Neighborhood dogs

●        Trains

●        Traffic at certain times of day

●        Loud vehicles

●        Neighbors who love to entertain

●        Loud music

Creating a Soundproof Barrier

Your siding performs several important functions in protecting your home. One of the most important is to create a thermal envelope that prevents air and moisture from getting into your interior. But the same insulating properties that help to keep moisture and air out of your home can also help to keep sound waves from penetrating your walls. The better your home’s insulation, the more effective it will be at preventing sound from getting in.

Vinyl Siding and Sound

When it comes to sound reduction, quality vinyl siding can be one of the most effective siding materials to install. Good vinyl siding is designed to effectively insulate your home. When combined with high-performance insulation, it can be a powerful tool against noise pollution from the outside world.
