    3 Benefits of Upgrading Your Home's Old Windows

    Last updated 4 years ago

    Is your home looking tired or dated? Replacing your windows can make your home feel fresh and new, but that is far from the only reason you should consider them. If you’re on the fence about replacing the windows in your home, these three benefits may help you make up your mind:

    Energy Efficiency
    Replacing windows is an investment that will pay off each month when your energy bills arrive. If you have an older home, your windows are not likely to be energy efficient. That means the cold and heat from outdoors are pouring into your home, while your home’s air conditioning and heat are seeping outside. Choose replacement windows that are Energy Star-rated to see the most significant improvement.  

    Safety
    Do you have pets and children in your household? Replacement windows could be safer for them than what you have now. If you like to open your windows for fresh air, choose double-sashed windows that open at the top instead of the bottom to reduce the risk of falls. You can even opt for replacement windows with a special locking mechanism that lets you open the window enough to let in fresh air without actually unlocking the window.

    Noise Reduction
    Are you tired of waking up every time a loud car drives by or the neighbors have a party?  Replace your single-pane windows with double-pane ones to dramatically reduce the noise that creeps into your home. As an added benefit, double-pane windows are much less susceptible to breakage than their single-pane counterparts.

    Which replacement windows are right for you? Talk to the expert team at California Glass & Window about what you want from your windows, and we’ll fit your home with the best products.

    A Basic Guide to the Window Installation Process

    Last updated 4 years ago

    Replacement windows can help you reduce your home energy use and improve the comfort levels of your interior. However, windows can only improve your home’s efficiency if they are installed properly. Here is what you can expect from the professional replacement window installation process:

    Contact a Reputable Contractor

    The window installation process starts with a conversation between the contractor and the homeowner. The two parties discuss the cost of the replacement and the type of replacement windows being installed. Finally, you come to an agreement on an estimate and schedule an installation date. A company representative will also contact and remind the homeowner about the installation prior to the work.

    Strip the Windows

    Much of the first installation day is spent removing old windows. Contractors carefully detach windows without causing structural damage to the home. As the windows are replaced, old windows are stacked on the side of the house. If the job cannot be completed in a single day, workers will remove the old windows from your yard at the end of each day.


    Complete the Installation

    Replacement windows are set into a window frame shortly after the aging window is removed. Professionals secure the fit against the window frame. Afterwards, the window is nailed securely into place.

    Clean the Worksite

    The contractor’s final task is to breakdown the worksite. All tools and machinery brought by the contractor are completely removed. All trash and leftover materials are taken away as well. Even your floors are swept and dusted. The end result is a beautiful set of perfectly installed replacement windows.

    No one installs vinyl replacement windows like California Glass & Window. Our selection of Milgard and Simonton windows is sure to include the perfect options for your home. Give us a call at (714) 434-8650 if you have more questions about new windows for your home.

    Replacing Your Home's Windows

    Aging windows not only make your home uncomfortable, but they also increase your energy bills. This video can help you decide if it is time to replace your windows.

    One of the first signs of worn windows is a noticeable draft. These air leaks make your home less efficient. You should also replace old windows that have little insulation. Double-pane, low-E windows offer numerous advantages and savings over worn and poorly insulated frames.

    The right replacement windows can help you save money every month. Get in touch with California Glass & Window if your home is in need of new, energy-efficient replacement windows. Our team of professional installers can be reached at (714) 434-8650.
