Adding to our Guide of problem solving services,
Long Island City, NY
we are listing Cityproof
as a local solution to improving your windows by cutting down on noise, draft or humidity.
Highly recommended by Peter, who wrote a memorable email to us last year on the subject, in which he used the words:
Oh. My. God.
Slience. Library quiet. Peaceful sleep. I slide the panels closed and feel like Charlton Heston in Omega Man, cloistering myself from the barbarians below. My favorite part? I bring guy friends in, show 'em the window, and say: "go ahead. Hit it. As hard as you can." All you hear is that dull whack of knuckles hittin' half-inch thick glass.
New York Mag says: The Best of 2004 - "The company can hush just about any type of window without affecting the style of the original panes or their operation."
AT Readers vote and comment below: Cityproof can work on both Landmark and Non Landmark buildings, without "replacing or modifying the existing exterior window." Prices start at @ $500 per window and go up from there depending on the complexity of the window and the thickness of the glass.
