Our sound barrier fence options include solid wood, masonry, vinyl, acoustic metal paneling, and more. We will assess the existing noise issues on your property, measure the decibel levels, and recommend the ideal fence style, height, and materials to maximize noise reduction.

Unlike DIY sound barrier fences which are often installed improperly, our skilled team will professionally design and build a long-lasting noise barrier fence guaranteed to reduce sound.

We obtain any required permits, utilize precise construction techniques, and only source durable, high-quality sound-blocking materials able to withstand the elements. This results in robust, effective noise reduction for your outdoor living areas.

Process We Follow for Sound Barrier Fencing

Installing an effective sound barrier fence is a complex process that requires proper planning, material selection, and methodical installation steps to maximize noise reduction. Here is an overview of the sound barrier fence-building process our team follows when serving residential and commercial clients:

Initial Site Evaluation

  • We perform a thorough on-site evaluation, measure existing decibel levels using advanced sound meters, listen to ambient noise, and assess your unique requirements to design an optimal solution.

Fence Design and Material Selection

  • Based on the site analysis and target noise levels, we design a sound barrier fence using the most suitable materials, height, placement strategy, and custom sound-blocking elements.

Permitting and Pre-Construction Prep

  • We obtain any required permits for the sound barrier fence from the city of Boulder. Our team also schedules construction timelines, orders/delivers materials, finalizes designs, etc.

Site Preparation and Layout

  • Before installation, we prepare the site including marking fence lines, grading if needed, removing debris/obstructions, and verifying property boundaries to allow efficient installation.

Post Hole Digging and Fence Post Installation

  • We professionally dig all post holes for your sound barrier fence posts using truck-mounted augers. Posts are set in concrete for maximum stability and strength.

Sound Barrier Fence Building and Panel Installation

  • Next, fencing panels, acoustic materials, and other noise-blocking components are methodically installed per the approved designs using proper techniques.

Finishing Touches and Cleanup

  • As the final step, we complete any finish work, add gates/ hardware, inspect the fence, remove construction debris from the site, and notify you of project completion.

Follow-Up Analysis

  • If needed, we can perform decibel readings after installation to confirm the sound barrier fence delivers the required noise reduction.

When you choose us for your sound barrier fence installation, you can be confident our experienced team will follow proven construction methods to maximize functionality and lifespan.

Cost of Sound Barrier Fencing in Boulder

The cost of installing a sound barrier fence will depend on several factors, including:

  • Linear footage – The longer the fence, the more material and labor required. We charge per linear foot installed.
  • Fence height – Taller fences from 6-16 feet block more sound but cost more to build.
  • Materials used – Masonry, steel, or acrylic are more costly than basic wood. Unique sound-dampening materials also add cost.
  • Permits/site prep – Obtaining permits, grading, removing obstructions, etc can add fees.
  • Accessibility – Difficult terrain or limited access may make the build more complex and expensive.

As a rough estimate, most standard sound barrier fence projects range from $25 – $50 per linear foot installed. Higher-end materials, greater heights, and additional sound-dampening components can push the costs over $100 per linear foot.

FAQs About Sound Barrier Fencing in Boulder

How much noise can a sound barrier fence reduce?

A properly designed and installed sound barrier fence can decrease ambient noise levels by up to 50% or more, providing a noticeable reduction in traffic sounds, machinery, and other annoying noises. The amount of reduction depends on the fence height, materials, and other factors.

What building materials work best for sound barrier fences?

Dense materials like concrete, masonry, steel, or thick wood provide the most sound dampening. Acrylic sheeting and metal sound barrier panels are other great options our fencing contractors often utilize.

How tall should a sound barrier fence be?

We recommend a minimum height of 6 feet, but 8-16 foot tall sound barrier fences will block even more noise. The required height depends on the source of the noise and proximity.

Do sound barrier fences work for traffic/highway noise?

Absolutely. Strategically placing a tall, solid sound barrier fence along highways or busy roads can significantly reduce traffic noise levels entering your property.

Can you install a sound barrier fence on a slope or hill?

Yes, through extra planning and preparation, we can install effective sound barrier fencing on sloped terrain or hills to dampen noise.

Can I install a sound barrier fence myself?

We don’t recommend DIY sound barrier fence installation, as there are complex building methods and code requirements. Our professional team has the experience and equipment to properly install your sound fence.

Do sound barrier fences need to look ugly?

Not at all! While function is the priority, we can incorporate aesthetically pleasing design features, materials, colors, landscaping, etc. to blend your noise barrier fence with the surroundings.

How long do sound barrier fences last?

When properly installed and maintained, a sound barrier fence has a lifespan of 15-25 years or longer before repairs or replacement are needed. Using durable, weather-resistant materials enhances longevity.

Will a sound barrier fence affect my home’s aesthetics or value?

Sound barrier fences allow you to enjoy your property more by reducing noise disturbances. Proper placement and attractive designs ensure your fence improves – not devalues – your property.

Can your company handle the permitting process for my sound barrier fence?

Absolutely – obtaining any required Boulder permits or completing other regulatory steps for your sound barrier fence are services we provide, so you avoid headaches.
