No matter where you live you are always likely to be subjected to outside noise invading your home. If you live in a city, town or village you are always going to be disturbed by the kids finishing school, passing traffic or the noise from the next door neighbours. Unless you live out in a remote part of the countryside, then such a din can drive you to edge of despair and in some severe cases it can affect your health.
Although windows, particularly those windows with only a single pane of glass are the most common way in which noise gets into a home, it can also easily pass through ceilings, walls and doors if they are not sufficiently protected. Soundproofing can bring an end to those sleepless nights and because most sound insulation products are not overly bulky they will not compromise on the existing look in your home.
