Some homes in Orange County, CA are just the envy of the neighborhood. Better manicured lawns? Better location? How about windows that hang better.

What?

We’re talking about double-hung and single-hung windows. If you don’t know the difference it may be worth your time to get a new understanding of the what it means to be “well hung!”

Double Your Pleasure

Double hung and single hung windows are very similar to each other, except for one major difference. On double hung windows both sash in the window frame are operable, meaning they move up and down. The sashes on a double hung window also tilt in for easy cleaning. Double hung windows are often preferred by many homeowners because they are so easy to clean due to an inward tilting sash.

Price of a Good Time

The cost of your new replacement double hung windows depends completely on you, your style preferences and your home. Depending on the style of your home, consider a grid pattern for your double hung windows, which would give them an added custom touch and the opportunity to completely transform your home’s curb appeal

Fun to be Single

With single hung windows, the top sash is fixed in place and does not move or tilt in, but the bottom is operable. Single hung windows can be raised from the bottom to allow airflow, while the top of the window remains stationary and helps increase energy efficiency.

The most beneficial reason to buy single hung windows is the cost and added energy efficiency. Single hung windows are less expensive than double hung windows and because the single hung has a fixed top sash.

Single hung window is suited for almost any traditional American. Depending on the style of your home, consider a grid pattern for your single hung windows, which would give them an added custom touch and the opportunity to completely transform your home’s curb appeal.

California Window and Solar. Doing great things for homes for over 50 years.

Some things in Orange County are out of our control: the weather, taxes and even earthquakes. But new windows, now THAT’S something you can pretty much maneuver on your own. New windows will make your Orange County more attractive and noise-free and not to mention less drafty! Add in low-to-no-maintenance (like painting and calking) and a new window replacement for your home can be a fun upgrade that won’t try your patience or break your wallet.

Time for a Makeover?

 

Technically speaking, if the existing frames and sills of your windows are still in relatively good shape, you may be able to use partial (pocket) replacement units. PRU’s are fully assembled units that slip into the existing frames, which can save you money on materials and labor.

 

On the other hand if your frame or sill has seen better days (i.e. rotted) then full-replacement windows are the order of the day. We’re talking new frame, sill, jambs, and generally a nailing flange that attaches the window to the outside wall around the opening.

 

The best advice? Contact California Window and Solar for a consultation. It will get you started in the right direction for your replacement windows!

 

Now Comes the Fun Part

 

Once the technical specifications are ironed out, then comes the fun part: you need to pick a window type. The style of your house and the existing windows may help you decide.

For example, on double-hung windows Irvine, CA the lower inside sash slides up and an upper outside sash slides down, improving air circulation and making full screens ideal. Cleaning is easy, because you can tilt the sash on any of the tested windows.

I’ve Been Framed

 

The more you know about window types the better. It’s al about being an informed consumer, right? For example wood frames tend to be the most expensive whereas vinyl frames are usually the least expensive. Vinyl doesn’t need to be painted or stained, though colors are limited and can’t be changed. Among casements, there was little difference between vinyl and wood frames.

 

Fiberglass-framed windows are a consideration - they don’t need to be painted either. And timing is everything: if the windows in your living room or other lived-in areas of your home are broken or unattractive, consider replacing just those windows rather than waiting years to do the whole house

Summer time in Orange County, CA is great for making memories! That means barbeques, softball, pastel sunrises and relaxing sunsets and you right in the middle of it all! Summer is also a perfect time to upgrade the windows in your home. The playing field for windows may look crowded, but among the options of wood, aluminum and fiberglass, vinyl windows are the ones that stand above the competition.

A quality vinyl is a well-designed window. When vinyl windows are well-designed and professionally installed, they will rank high on energy efficiency, prevent a significant amount of air leakage; and last longer than other similar types of windows!

You can count on the friendly professionals at California Window and Solar to work with you to ensure you have the right windows that meet the needs of your home. Double hung vinyl windows are among our most popular. 

Differences That Count

Below are the qualities that you want to have on your double hungs. Focus on these 6 key elements.

Foam filled frame and sashes: What gives vinyl windows the edge over other alternative options in terms of energy performance is their multi-chambered construction into which the foam fill insulation is injected. This makes them more energy efficient than other window types especially wood and metal. Another product that can be incorporated into the multiple chamber construction to provide maximum energy efficiency is the stick foam.

Weather-stripping: One way to tell how much air your double hung can seal out is the amount and type of weather stripping used around the perimeters of the unit. Ideally, look for double hungs with multiple strips of weather stripping around their sashes. In addition, make sure that the type of weather stripping used can effectively withstand all types of weather conditions, temperature changes, as well as wear and tear.

Insulated Glass: To take full advantage of the energy efficiency of your double hungs, choose the right glass technology. We offer 23 different variations of insulated glass for your double hung windows to meet your energy needs at home.

Do you live in Lake Forest? Do you own a home? Are you looking for a great way that you can improve not only the aesthetic quality of that home but also its value? If so, you may be looking at certain home improvement projects that seem to be standard for homeowners in your position. However, have you ever thought about replacement windows to boost your home’s appeal and value?

The most common ways homeowners think to improve their houses

There are a number of ways that people can improve their houses. Renovating and updating their kitchen is one of the most common ways that people boost the value, and enjoyability, of their home.

When you have an old, outdated kitchen, it tends to lead to eating out more often. You turn to going to eat out because you’re not inspired to cook anything, being surrounded by a dirty, broken countertop, stained and chipped floor, small, inconvenient refrigerator, and even little cabinet space.

So you plan on expanding your kitchen or finding a way to make the most of the space that you do have. At the same time, you would be updating all of the appliances, the countertops, and even the flooring so that everything is new. Then you will tend to cook at home more often, and your home’s value and appeal will increase as well.

The same is true when it comes to the bathrooms in the home, especially the main bathroom. When you update and renovate the bathroom, you’re going to be increasing the aesthetic appeal of the home, and you will actually increase the sale value of the house as a result.

What are some other ways that people tend to focus on to increase the value of their home?

The outdoor curb appeal is one of the major improvements that homeowners make a significant investment in. Installing slab walkways or a nice stone patio or wooden deck is one of the most convenient ways to improve the outdoor living space of the home. Now, what about other things that you can do inside the home?

You could buy all new bedroom furniture and enjoy a great, new experience in your bedroom. Painting the walls with fresh, modern colors can do wonders to help make your home more comfortable and enjoyable to live in.

If you have any type of cellar or unfinished part of your house, such as a garage bay that you don’t use for anything, you could even think about converting it into livable space.

Within every home, there are countless ways that you can improve the living space, add living space, and boost the overall value of your home. However, there is that one aspect of home improvement that is simply overlooked by far too many homeowners.

That is replacement windows.

Maybe you’ve been thinking that it’s time to install new windows in your home. Maybe you’ve started to notice that the condition of your current windows is something to be desired and that you’re covering them up more than you’re opening them to the world around you.

When you keep the blinds or the curtains closed over during the day, then you will actually have a darker home in which to live. This can affect your overall emotional frame of mind, leading to depression or a sense that you are not getting to most out of your house. At night, it’s normal to keep the blinds closed or the curtains drawn closed, but during the day, the more that you can open them up and allow the sun to shine in, the more energy you’ll attain in your home.

Also, old windows tend to have a host of problems with them that you might not think about unless you open them every day. They could be painted over and over and over through the years and that can make it almost impossible to open them. The storm windows could be decrepit, the hardware could be corroded and not working properly, and the glass could be damaged, making it unappealing or, when the sun shines through them, highlighted all of the issues with the windows.

All of these factors can have a direct impact on the enjoyment that you have at home. Just take a moment to think about what it’s like when you’re home during the day and the curtains are not thrown open wide. It may be a habit at this point, something that you started to do (not opening the curtains or blinds) when you noticed how dingy and old the windows looked, but not you don’t even think about it.

How dark and drab is the home now? Do you look forward to being home and being inside the living room, maybe reading a book? Do you avoid inviting people over during the day because you don’t want them to see just how poor the windows are?

No matter what your reasons are for looking into replacement windows in Lake Forest, it’s one of the best home improvement projects that you can do. Not only will you actually improve the living space in every room of your house, but you’ll also boost the overall value of your home as well, if you choose the right brand and style of windows. This last statement is very important. If you choose cheap, low end windows, then you’re going to find that the value of your home won’t increase very much at all.

When you realize just how important replacement windows are for home improvement, contact California Window & Solar. We have been helping homeowners throughout Lake Forest and the entire Orange County region for years to get the ideal windows for their homes.

If you have any questions about your current windows, we can help answer them as well. When it comes to windows, we’re passionate about helping others learn as much as possible so that they can make the best decision for their home.
