Wondering if anyone has experience with and/or can recommend a reasonably priced soundproofing contractor. We are not looking for much-- perhaps just some new upstairs windows and additional attic insulation. We are not in the official "noise abatement" zone so don't qualify for the residential sound insulation program.
The noise from O'Hare planes crossing over at night seems to have grown significantly worse in the last few months-- not sure if these are freight planes, if planes are flying lower, etc., but the noise rattles our entire house, is LOUD, and occurs consistently every 30 seconds or so. Earplugs and a sound machine aren't cutting it.
Any recommendations are appreciated- thanks.
