When your home is located in a historical area, the city's planning department often will require that the new windows be of the same material that you are replacing. The idea behind this is that the home does not lose it's character by changing the windows. 

Kevin Y. in Pomona wanted to upgrade his nearly 100 year old windows to dual-pane, energy efficient windows. But the city of Pomona will not allow typical fiberglass or vinyl replacement windows to be used in a historical home. In this case, the planning department requried wood windows to match the original. Additionally, the city has recently adopted a growing requriement that requires the contractor to prove that we recycled over 50% of the waste generated by the project.

To ensure compliance with the city requirements, we first used Paramount Wood Windows, taking care to have them manufactured with sticking and profiles that closely matched the originals. In the photos, you will note the three muntin bars in the windows near the entry door (center of the home). They match nearly perfectly with the existing windows. Yet, these new windows are double-strength glass, dual pane, and have LoE Glass for maximum energy effiency. 

We removed the sashes of the old windows, but preserved the original frame and exernal sill. Those were made of Redwood nearly a century ago, and were in spectacular condition. This method is known as a block-frame retrofit install. So by doing this, we were able to really preserve the asthetic of the home, while giving Kevin new windows that operate perfectly and will also help with energy consumption and comfort in the home. 

Pomona has done a great job preserving their historical homes, and we were proud to be a part of preserving this beautiful vintage home!

Is it Time for Vinyl Replacement Windows and Doors in your Pomona, California Home?

How do you know when it is the right time for vinyl replacement windows and doors in Pomona, CA? There are several signs that you can watch for that indicate that you should replace the doors and windows in your home. If you are interested in having an expert visit your home to make recommendations about the timing of your window replacements, then we invite you to contact our team at Design Windows and Doors Inc..

Here are a few reasons you will know that it is the right time for vinyl replacement windows and doors:

1. Your Home is Drafty

Do you find that the temperature changes depending on where you are in your home? Drafty windows make it hard to manage the temperature inside your home because the drafts bring in the temperature from outside. As a result, your air conditioner or heater is forced to work overtime throughout the day in order to overcome these drafts.

Walk through your home and stand in various areas in each room. Pay attention to the changes in temperature and the comfort levels of each room. If you notice a big difference in temperature between the rooms, then the best thing that you can do is talk with us at Design Windows and Doors Inc. about installing vinyl replacement windows and doors in your home.

When these new doors and windows are installed, the drafts will decrease and it will be easier for you to manage the climate within your home. As a result, your air conditioner won't need to kick on as frequently, because your home will be sealed off from the outside weather.

2. You want to Save Money

Are you always looking for ways to save money? There is one place where you can probably cut back even more: your utility bills. Monthly utility bills can really add up, especially if your home has poor energy efficiency. Instead of paying a lot of money every month, you need to look for ways that you can decrease energy usage to save money.

Poorly insulated doors and windows run up your utility bills since you need to use more energy to keep the home at a comfortable temperature. If you choose vinyl replacement windows and doors, you will notice an immediate decrease in your utility costs. These savings can really add up over time, helping you to recover the money that you invested in the window upgrades.

If you feel like your property is outdated, then you might be tempted to move into a newer home. But, you don't have to move in order to get the upgraded style that you desire.
