I have the 1990 dual pane windows that builders put in.. aluminum frame and all and I can hear the street outside it is fairly loud.
On my previous home I am closer to the freeway and louder outside,
but do have newer windows (2000 era) and it seems quieter.
I am curious the new vinyl window and newer dual pane window will make that much of a difference to noises outside.. I am guessing the aluminum frame adds as kind of a speaker/coil and resonate the noise worse than a vinyal frame window?
