Hello,

A previous owner replaced all of my home's old double-hung windows with a vinyl replacement sash.

I am going to have some custom wood sashes with true divided lights and new wood storm windows made up. The one challenge I am facing is that I live near an airport, so noise abatement is a huge issue.

What kind of options should I looking into given that noise is an issue? Would a thicker glass pane in the window be feasible? I've heard that glass can range from 1/4" to 1/8".

Should I look into laminated glass? How does laminated glass look in historic windows? Is there any visual difference between laminated glass and regular glass?

Thanks for any help you can give!

Jim
