aluminum sunroom


Is it possible to drywall my aluminum sunroom? I want to improve the insulation and reduce outside noise.

Need some pictures, where do you live.
Drywall will not the deaden the sound hardly at all.
Most of the sound would still come in though the windows.

I live in Southern California. Insulation is my primary objective, but if you have any ideas for the sound through the windows...I'm open ideas!

Thanks

using rockwool insulation and 5/8 drywall will help a bit, spray foam and sound board will do even more. but as joe mentioned your current windows wont do much. if you want to reduce the sound transmission quite a bit you will have to upgrade your windows to one that has a stc rating
