Noise pollution is not something everyone thinks about when they think of fencing, but it is true that fences can help in reducing it. A fence might not be able to totally soundproof a property, but it can reduce environmental noise significantly. If you need a privacy fence to block road noise near you, contact or visit Mid-Atlantic Deck & Fence in Gambrills, Maryland!
The Value of Soundproofing
Noise pollution can be an environmental and health concern in busier areas today. Noise from lawnmowers, airplanes, passing cars, and more can be ongoing, and the effects can cause ill health. Stress, hearing loss, and insomnia are just a few possible consequences. Alternatively, reducing noise with a privacy fence can also protect your neighbors from the loudness of dogs barking, children playing, and parties gathering in your back or front yards.
Vinyl and Composite Privacy Fences
Vinyl and composite privacy fences are excellent for blocking road noise and other sounds. The way to reduce high decibel levels in your yard is to install a barrier that is completely solid so that the sound waves on the other side bounce off of it. Like liquid, sound waves will come through if there are any gaps or holes present. If you need a tall, solid vinyl or composite privacy fence, Mid-Atlantic Deck & Fence can build a custom design or one of the beautiful selections from their showroom or catalog.
Wood Privacy Fences
Likewise, Mid-Atlantic Deck & Fence can help you build and install a beautiful wooden privacy fence. There are different styles of privacy fences, and whichever one you choose should be as gap-free as possible. The denser the wood, the better. Cedar and redwood are great options for wood privacy fencing, as they provide mid-level durability and maintenance needs compared to pressure-treated pine and exotic wood species.
Some say that adding trees around a yard can help reduce noise, but others say that they make practically no difference. Sound waves only stop when they hit a hard wall. Even so, adding trees and especially evergreens can help one feel like there is less sound coming through. The road is even more “out of sight, out of mind” with beautiful greenery along the fence year-round. Once again, if you need a privacy fence to block road noise, contact Mid-Atlantic Deck & Fence!
