Eliminating That Streetside Sound

You love your home. You purchased the ol’ abode four years ago when prices took a plummet. It was a steal, and the value’s nearly doubled since you made the purchase. You’ve also poured your heart and soul into the gal. You tore out that dilapidated deck and replaced it with a sturdy platform that’s ideal for barbeques and get-togethers. You finished the basement (including two bedrooms, two baths, a full wet bar, and an entertainment room). You’ve even installed a waterfall in the landscape of the backyard. But there’s one thing that bugs you. One tiny problem that irks you just a little bit every day: The noisy cars on the street.


Throughout the day, the decibels waft from the road and through your landscape, until finally, they make their unwelcome way into your ear. The noise of the street pesters you as you try to nap in your hammock. A honking car makes you raise your voice as you discuss the ball game with your guests. And just as you’re about to fall asleep at night, someone is bound to fly by on their “hog” and really open up the engine. You’ve had it. It’s time to move to a new home…Or perhaps it’s time to make a change. You could always install a fence to mitigate the noises of the street!

A tall cedar fence ought to do the trick, and it’ll block out the view of all of those cars buzzing by.


Now that you think of it, you have noisy neighbors as well. Maybe it’d be best to build up a fence along the side of your home to keep out the blaring sounds of Phish (The neighbors appear to have only bought one album; an album which they play on repeat at all hours of the morning, day, afternoon, evening, and night.).


Next, you realize that there’s noise that wails in from the airstrip behind your home. At precisely 2:15, 3:45, and 4:10 in the morning, a 747 takes off, waking you and dogs all around the neighborhood. A fence lining the back of the property ought to do the trick. Plus it’ll keep out the view of that weed-ridden no-man’s-land between your home and the airstrip.


Finally, you realize two things: First of all, the dogs around the neighborhood are always barking. Secondly, it’s just plain weird to have a home with three sides of fencing (leaving your other neighbor’s property exposed). You appropriately decide to put up the full four sides of fence surrounding your castle.

The noise reduction is notable. Plus, you don’t have to keep looking at cars, hogs, and the occasional semi-truck. No more noisy neighbors. No more glaring weeds. Your home looks and feels complete, and that’s all thanks to a solid cedar fence installation from the pros here at VanHoose Fencing Co.
