The owner of this Nashville home wished to swap out all of the existing windows in their home with replacement windows that would use glass with a higher sound transmission class to block out noise from the nearby interstate. 

As we set out to replace 21 different windows throughout the home, our team noticed that some of the windows were slightly too large. We had to adjust the window openings accordingly. The bay window, located in the back of the house, presented another challenge.  Windows were replaced on the back of the house and we had to cut our aluminum stops and reframe the openings.

To reduce the amount of noise being transmitted into the home from the interstate, we used our Lifestyle Series sound package in the casement and fixed windows and glass with a high STC rating in the double-hung.
