Sun and Sound Windows is proud to serve Houston/Galveston, Austin, Dallas/Fort Worth, and San Antonio metropolitan areas.
Soundproof any room in your home or office with our soundproof window inserts. Imagine blocking up to 75% of low pitch noise (big trucks, A/C compressors, etc.) and up to 95% of high pitch noise (bus brakes, pool pumps, etc.).
Our sound reduction values use the Sound Transmission Class (STC) scale which tests a series of low to high frequencies at the same loudness to find an average.
Our Soundproof Window inserts have an STC rating of 42 if you have an existing single-pane window, and 48 if you have an existing double-pane window.
Three Styles of Inserts
Operating Insert - slides up/down or left/right
This insert is the most convenient for those who frequently open the windows on the noisy side of the building, but is the most expensive because it has moving parts. It is slightly less effective than our other styles simply because the sliding part of the window must be free to move.
Single Piece Insert - removable single panel
This insert is the most effective and least expensive because it has no moving parts. It is the best choice for those who rarely open the windows on the noisy side of the building, and want the maximum sound reduction.
Two-Piece Insert - removable dual panels
This insert is a cross between the Operating Insert and the Single panel. It is the best choice for those who occasionally open the windows on the noisy side of the building.
Where Are They Made?
We are a Texas company that manufactures and installs only in Texas. We service residential and commercial properties in all major Texas metro areas - Houston, Austin, Dallas, Ft. Worth - and areas nearby and in-between.
Pricing depends on size, volume, existing windowtreatments, shape and installation. ResidentialSoundproof Window Inserts are usually between $22 and $58 per square foot, including installation and tax. For example, three 3'x6' inserts are approximately 25% less per insert than just one. Arched windows are about 15% more expensive than rectangular windows because they take much more time to cut and install.
Prices for commercial Soundproof Window Inserts vary even more (both lower and higher). For example, window volumes and sizes are usually much higher than residential applications, reducing prices significantly. But, access to windows may be much more difficult, driving prices higher. Our hotel installations are a good example of this, i.e. many large windows, yet limited access to available rooms.
Installation and Timing
In most cases we can install your soundproof window inserts within two-three weeks of receiving your 50% down payment. They usually install in one to two days, depending on volume and accessibility.
