Hello,

Hope I can get help here. I have a condo in a highrise building. and I found the 2 bedrooms have significant horn noise that the living room. We can't fell into sleep because of this constant noise.

We want to get some professional noise checking done for it. Can somebody point me where I can find the service?

Owens Corning has an Sound barrier type insulation that can be used between the units. They use a decibal reading instrument to determine how much it reduces the sound. Basically the will tear the wall board and insulation away from the common walls/ceilng and then use the sound barrier insulation and wallboard. Works great!!

Contact an owens corning or similiar contractor.

They had an episode of Holmes on Holmes on this type of scenerio. If I can find it you can watch the episode. Be right back!!

Hi, Thanks for the informaiton. I'm checking it now.

The current stage of us is: we hope to get some professional agency to do a noise inspectation for us, find out the root cause of the noise. and see if it should be fixed by the builders.

We have one living room in the middle, 2 bedrooms, one to the left, one to the right. All 3 rooms and their windows face the same direction. Windows are all 2-layer glasses for insulation. The strange thing is: The living room has an acceptable noise level. But both bedrooms have very strong horn noise.

We are wondering if it caused by something wrong of window insulation, e.g. no vacuum in between the 2 layers. Builder does not admit this and seems do not want to do a thorough check for us. They said the noise might just because the location of our 2 bedrooms. So we want to find someone do an evaluating for us, and get some proof.

BTW, The noise seems not coming from other rooms, it is from the outside.
