Sleep plays a vital role in promoting physical health, longevity, and emotional well-being. Without adequate sleep, judgment, mood, and the ability to learn and retain information are weakened. Chronic sleep deprivation may also lead to obesity, diabetes, and heart disease according to Dr. Mark Berber, the co-director of the Centre for Neuropsychiatric Study at Markham Stouffville Health Center.
The ability for something to reduce the amount of sound that passes through it is measured in STC or Sound Transmission Class – it is expressed on a scale of 0-100 (100 being completely soundproof). A typical house with brick walls has an STC of ~60-65 while standard thermal windows have an STC of 27-29 – this means the majority of the noise you hear in your home is coming through your windows.
We can help with that.
Homeservice Club is pleased to offer a window soundproofing system, which can reduce noise by 65% or more without replacing your existing windows. A perfect solution for noisy condos! In addition to being available in a wide variety of colours to suit any decor, this system can be easily removed or made to be fully operational, which allows for easy cleaning without impeding the use of your existing windows!

“We live on a busy road next door to a commercial property (restaurant with outdoor patio). The level of noise in our home made it very difficult to sleep at night and to work during the day. We ended up replacing the windows facing the commercial property as well as adding soundproof windows on top of our existing windows in the bedroom, office, and dining room. The difference was immediately noticeable. As we learned and are now experiencing, soundproof windows do not completely eliminate noise but they take the edge off loud noise and provide an excellent buffer. The sound level is greatly reduced – our home feels like home again.
