Putting double hungs back in, sound is a factor
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!
