New Zealand homes are noisy
Unfortunately most of our homes are both thermally and acoustically poorly designed. This is due to a price driven building culture and particularly that acoustic design is not thought to be a high priority for most of its clients. However with more and more infill construction in our big cities so has the impact of our neighbours on our quality of life. At Devon Timber Windows we have taken this issue very seriously and so we can now offer an acoustic retrofit service to address this situation.
