    Keeping Your Home's Windows Secure

    Last updated 4 years ago

    Windows are the source of the beautiful, natural light that makes your home warm and inviting. However, because windows are the gateway between the interior of your home and the outside world, it’s important to make sure they’re giving you the security you need:

    Kids
    When your children are very young, be sure to keep furniture and anything they can climb away from your windows. As your children begin to explore on their own, make sure they understand that windows are never for leaning against, climbing out of, or opening without adult supervision, especially on the second floor. If you decide to open your windows to allow fresh air in, don’t open any windows young children can access. If you have Simonton windows, use the ventilation function that allows windows to be opened slightly for fresh air without actually being unlocked.

    Fires
    Your windows may be your best escape route during a fire. Practice fire drills with your family in which you let older kids practice opening windows. Be sure to keep chain ladders in all of your bedrooms that can be hung from your windows in the event of a fire.

    Crime
    The right windows can help protect your family from break-ins. Tempered safety glass windows consist of two layers of glass with plastic in-between. When the glass gets hit, the outer layer may shatter, but the glass shards will stick to the plastic. The plastic layer is difficult to puncture, so breaking in is more difficult. Tempered glass can also protect your home from flying objects during storms, as the durability of the glass can stand up to the elements.

    Different families have different window needs, and at California Glass & Window, we’re here to ensure that all of our clients get just the right ones. We offer a long list of secure window options from Simonton and Milgard as well as vinyl window replacement options. Get information about our complete selection by calling (714) 434-8650.

    Last updated 4 years ago

    What are your windows doing for you? If they’re not Simonton windows, they may not be doing enough. Simonton windows protect against wind damage and break-ins, can lower your energy bills, and reduce noise. These windows are truly an investment in the long-term health of your home.

    This video demonstrates the remarkable power of Simonton windows. Watch an experiment in which two-by-fours, fired with the force of a Category 5 hurricane, fail to break Simonton windows. You will also see how a sledgehammer can’t shatter the glass.

    Simonton windows are just one of the high-quality products we offer at California Glass & Window. Let us help you choose the right windows for you home. Call us today at (714) 434-8650 for more information.

    A Homeowner's Guide to Milgard Wood Windows

    Last updated 4 years ago

    If you’re looking for windows that add timeless beauty to your home, consider Milgard wood windows. These windows combine curb appeal with enough toughness to stand up to the elements. At California Glass & Window, we recommend Milgard windows to many of our customers who want beauty and durability. Here is what you need to know about Milgard wood windows:

    Interior Windows
    Part of the appeal of Milgard wood windows is that they are different on the inside and outside. The interior side of the window comes in pine wood standard, but you can opt for primed wood or Douglas fir. Because of a unique internal connecting system, there are no visible staples or nail holes. The result is a completely smooth finish that can be painted or stained to the color of your choice.

    Exterior Windows
    The exterior side of a Milgard wood window is made from fiberglass, an alternative to a traditional wood window, which is wood on both sides. The fiberglass makes the window better able to stand up to the elements. Milgard uses a powder-coat painting process for sag-free paint that lasts for years and is resistant to scratching. Milgard offers 15 different exterior colors, so you’re sure to find one that complements your home. Their exterior windows also come complete with a water management system that protects the sash and keeps water from entering the interior. Should water enter the sash for any reason, the window is set up to drain water away before it causes damage.

    Milgard windows are built to last, but should you have any trouble, you can rely on their full lifetime warranty. We believe in Milgard windows at California Glass & Window. We’re committed to making sure all of our customers get the right windows for their needs. Call us today at (714) 434-8650 to learn more about all of our window products and get advice on which ones are best for your home.

    How Windows Can Help Lower Your Heating and Cooling Costs

    Last updated 4 years ago

    Are your energy bills through the roof? Instead of looking to your thermostat, look to your windows. If your windows are letting your air conditioning and heating escape and allowing the elements in, you’re never going to lower your utility bills. Swapping out your old windows could significantly reduce your energy expenses.

    This video explains what to look for in energy-efficient windows. The first step is to look for Energy Star certification, which indicates that the product has been approved by the Department of Energy and Environmental Protection Agency. Next, look for U-factor and Solar Heat Gain ratings. Watch this video to learn more.

    California Glass & Window offers many energy-efficient window options from Simonton, Milgard, and more. Call us at (714) 434-8650 to find out how we can help you save on utility bills.
