Soundproofing for a Better Night’s Sleep

By Steve Graham, Networx

I once rented a central Denver apartment where the main bedroom had big, old windows overlooking a busy street. It seemed perfect until late Saturday night, when the vehicular traffic and sirens almost drowned out the rowdy pedestrian traffic. Thankfully it was a short-term rental and we got used to the noise. However, you donít have to put up with night-time noise disturbing your family and interrupting your sleep. You can remodel to reduce the racket or use gadgets to mask the noise.

it's a very close to professional solution, but sometimes I'm wondering if I have to afford for other people's gas pumping behviours.

Thankfully my biker neighbours have moved.When sleeping after night duty I had to put the fan on as alternate noise to drown out the sounds of them fixing and reving bikes all day.At weekends when we could sleep in- no way,all their friends would come over for a hoe down.Now we have great neighbours with 2 children but they are really respectful and dont make a much noise.We are so lucky!!

I've had it once. As I recall, it was unexpectedly salty, but it wasn't horrible.
