Home Sweet Home – that is unless you live next to the main drag and all you hear are cars driving by.  Or maybe you are tired of hearing your neighbor’s conversations?  Whatever the case may be there are at least 7 Ways to Soundproof Your Home and have a more valuable asset as well!

1.  Noise Control Curtains

Yes there are noise control curtains that can help soundproof your home.  Make sure they cover both above and below the window.

4.  Sound-absorbing Paint

Yes, it does exist.  From my research it was 50/50 whether it works or not, but its worth a shot!

5.  Replace Your Doors

If your interior doors are hollow (and most are) consider replacing them with solid-wood doors.

Add extra insulation to your ceilings and walls – not only will you reduce your noise issues, you will also reduce your heating bill.

7.  Windows

If you can afford it consider replacing your existing windows with triple pane glass windows.  If not, what about using acoustical caulk sealant around every window?

Kurt has developed a unique system designed to turn renters into homeowners. Unlike most Realtors his initial focus is on the financial end of the transaction. This dynamic has allowed him to develop more buyers that were not previously in the market, which in turn leads to more listings being sold. While Kurt is constantly tweaking his programs to meet the needs of his clients, he is ever mindful that a home is not sold without a buyer. More times than not, a buyer that he turned into a homeowner.
