Replacement windows and doors for your Palm Springs home

An excellent, but sometimes forgotten, way to upgrade your home is with a replacement window or door. Besides simply having an immediate impact on your home's curb appeal, a new window or door can also improve your home in many other ways. Is your home uncomfortable or do you have a surprisingly high heating (or cooling) bill? A replacement window or door can help with these problems by reducing drafts in your home and keeping your heating and cooling systems from having to work overtime. A new door or window can also help you keep your home more secure from intruders or pests.

What are the benefits of a window or door replacement from Design Windows and Doors Inc.?

A window or door replacement, provided it comes from a quality contractor like Design Windows and Doors Inc., provides many benefits. Here are just a few ways a new window or door can help your home:

  • Better energy efficiency: Are you noticing unusually high energy bills? Often this comes from hot or cold air escaping out of old windows and doors that have become drafty. Replacing your old windows and doors with some new, quality options will eliminate, or at least greatly reduce, these drafts. Therefore your heating or cooling system will no longer have to work quite as hard, thus reducing your energy bill as your home becomes more energy efficient.  
  • A more comfortable home: Another benefit of eliminating drafts is the increased comfort this provides. No longer will you need to go grab a blanket simply because a nearby window is letting cold air sweep the room where you're trying to curl up on a chair. New windows will also be far clearer, thus allowing much more natural light to enter the room which will make it both more welcoming and comfortable to live in.
  • Improved home safety: Old windows and doors can also be detrimental to your home's safety. Because of their age, they will often sit in the frame poorly and thus be vulnerable to potential burglars. Gaps between the windows or doors and their frames will also make it easy for pests like insects to slip in even when they are closed. Quality replacement windows and doors will be far more secure and, if properly installed by a quality contractor like Design Windows and Doors Inc., fit securely within the frame. 
  • Attractive and customizable: Of course there is also one very simple reason that new windows or doors are a good option. Quality window and door replacements simply look much better than the old windows they replace. More styles are now available than ever and here at Design Windows and Doors Inc. we can help you find a replacement door or window that will fit best with your home and style.

Job Stories From Palm Springs, CA
Installation of Patio Door where no opening previously existed

Ray M. of Palm Springs, CA hired our company to replace all of the windows and doors in his condominium with Milgard Tuscany series vinyl windows and doors. All of the windows except for one were a standard retrofit installation. However, one of the doors that he wanted us to install did not exist. He had a wall in the kitchen where he wanted a door, but to do that we first needed to create the opening.

Opening up the wall is not as easy as simply cutting a hole and installing a door. We first had to retain the services of a licensed structural engineer to come out to inspect the property. He then did the load calculations and created a set of plans that we took to the city for the permitting process. 

Once permits were issued, we were ready to begin. The primary challenge with this job was keeping the look of every door and window consistant. Becasue the other doors and windows we were replacing were retrofit, we needed to use a retrofit door on this new opening as well so that they would all look the same. But when creating a new opening, traditionally we would use a nail-fin or "new construction" door. This does not have the decorative flange on the outside that the retrofit door has, and if used here would look quite different than everything else we had installed. 

The solution to this was to create a faux aluminum frame that we could retrofit into. To do this, we installed metal J-Channel and flashed that in just like a window frame. Then, we repaired the stucco and were able to install a retrofit door.

But before any of this could be done, we had to frame the opening. The engineer called out for a new header, as well as new 4 x 4 posts that would act as king studs. These were to be anchored to the existing concrete slab with special concrete anchors and epoxy. This process is critical to the strength of the framing, and requires a special inspector to come out and watch while we drill the slab, apply the epoxy and install the concrete bolts to ensure it is done correctly.

We did that as well as framed the opening, patched the stucco and installed the doors in just three days! This included the construction as well as the concrete, framing, stucco and final inspections. One of the things that made this go so smoothly was the cith of Palm Springs. Their building and safety department were truly professional every step of the way. 

We are proud to have been a part of this project, and it really turned out spectacularly.
