Window Weight Cavity


So I tore into the left side of the window today. There is absolutely no insulation between the window and the frame and obviously in the weight pocket. I really have no idea if this is going to lower the sound from the road, but I will feel better knowing there is insulation all around the window when I'm done.

You are definitely doing something worthwhile regardless of whether or not it gives you the sound reduction that you're looking for.

I thought other readers might benefit from the "stuffing f.g." in a cavity- not the professionals here.

Better to start 2 new threads on the subjects. One in "General discussion" and the other in "Paint". Thanks, Gary
