EXTERIOR AND INTERIOR SOUNDPROOFING
You just love your new home site – the nearest neighbor isn’t too close because you enjoy your “peace and quiet”. If you find out too late, however, that your neighbor’s dog howls like a wolf every day at the crack of dawn and there’s nothing you can do about it, you might wish you had considered additional exterior soundproofing during the “long gone” design phase. As a highly experienced, Moore County, NC custom homebuilder, we can tell you that a barking dog is only one of many sounds that can disturb, and yes, exterior soundproofing would have been a great idea “way back when”.
There are a number of ways to significantly enhance the soundproofing of your home. If you’re really serious and want near absolute silence, it can be done. Some custom homes are built with 2X8 (vs. 2X6) exterior walls with 2×6 studs innovatively staggered to reduce drywall screw noise transmission. Such a wall is also uniquely insulated in a variety of effective and extremely energy efficient ways (an extra bonus), and utilize an additional, sound absorbent substrate beneath 5/8″ thick drywall. When you ask any expert, Pinehurst, NC custom homebuilder about exterior openings, they will no doubt recommend acoustically superior, triple pane glazed windows and specially designed soundproof doors.

You have no desire to be kept awake by a late night “Action Movie” on a living room TV blasting at high volume.
