Read Citiquiet windows reviews from homeowners and installers on their soundproof window costs and options.

Editor's Citiquiet Window Review

There are three main soundproof window companies in New York City; Citiquiet, Cityproof and Soundproof Windows. The positive for consumers is that all three seem to manufacture an effective soundproof window. Citiquiet is often the least expensive of the 3 options, although there are a fair number of consumers who have enough sound issues that price tends to be less important than effectiveness. One place where windows won't help is with through wall A/C and vents, although there are covers that you can buy that should reduce much of this noise at night.

While CitiQuiet tends to be less expensive, their windows may not be quite as effective as the two two companies. We would recommend that consumers get all three to come out and give their bids (feel free to mention this too, as this is a great way to insure that the price they quote you is as competitive as possible). This is one way to easily compare the quality of the products (you will get to actually touch and feel the products), as well as get a sense for their installation practices and who you feel most comfortable with.

Citiquiet vs Soundproof Windows

I recently installed a test window from Soundproof Windows, but it wasn't quite as effective as I was hoping for. The bid to do the entire house was roughly $10K, and Citiquiet's bid came in at roughly half of that. So my question is how good is CitiQuiet and what is there STC ratings on their windows. The CitiQuiet installer or person who gave me the bid said our walls were sturdy and didn't think that the issue was with them.

CitiQuiet offers a 3/8" thick glass that is comprised of two 3/16" panes with an insulation layer in between and is a pretty solid solution. The company claims that this window will reduce noise 95% over single pane aluminum windows and this is probably right, especially considering how bad the STC rating usually is on an old single pane window. They offer a variety of glass thickness, laminated or low-e, tints, and other options. They claim their 1/2" laminated window option will provide an STC 38. I really have no knowledge as to whether or not the company is good or not. I've read a few reviews (that all seemed to be decent), but I can't say whether they are the company to go with

Citiquiet vs CitiProof Windows

I've gotten bids from both Citiquiet and Cityproof and really don't know who to go with. Citiquiet was about 25% less expensive, but I don't want to just go with the low cost provider.

I recently hired a sound guy to give me advise on what he thought and he said that CityProof was better than Citiquiet. However, they are also more expensive, so it's unclear to me whether it's worth the higher price. In all likelihood, I'll end up going with the CityProof windows, even at the higher price.

Citiquiet Windows Cost vs Indow Inserts

I live in Brooklyn so I wasn't sure whether these were available to me. It turns out they have two resellers here in the area. We did have some direct contact with Indow in Portland and they were awesome.

We live in an old converted wherehouse and the single pane windows have some nice historic value, but they suck at keeping out the cold and noise. Storm windows seemed like a perfect option because we wanted to keep the basic look and feel. These windows are pretty funky because they are arched at the top and certainly not plumb, which was one of the reasons that the window prices so high. Indow suggested that we install a support beam across the middle and then install two smaller windows that would have a better seal for the odd shape.

The quotes from Citiquiet windows and Cityproof were very comparable ($9,700 and $9,900 installed) for our 3 very large window opening, each roughly 4' by 8'. The installed cost for Indow from our local installer was $3,000 and that included everything.

It took 8 weeks to order and ship across country and the installation had some definite hiccups that were the fault of the openings. Indow and our local installer handled everything really well and I was definitely impressed with the level of customer service they offered. We went with the standard inserts, but they have proved very effective at both noise reduction and keeping our old place much warmer. All in all, a great experience and I hope others can find out about this company.

Citiquiet Review

I'm on a very loud block in the East Village and need some sort of soundproofing option. The two companies that seem to always come up in Google searches are Citiproof and Citiquiet. I would like some real opinions on the quality of the windows they sell and what I can expect to pay. Thanks.

I'm midway through the whole process so I can only tell you what I've found. I met with one of the owners of Citiquiet and he has been very helpful as far as offering solutions for my windows, which are oddly shaped and his general demeanor etc. He wasn't pushy and didn't try to shove anything down our throats, which I appreciated. There is a long lead time on the actual order though, two months, which seems very long to me, but maybe that's normal. I'll give a report on the rest of it when they actually get installed.
