When a window becomes broken, severely warped, or damaged, a replacement window can become an extreme necessity that some homeowners don’t realize. If you find yourself in the predicament of having a broken or damaged window, you shouldn’t wait to have it fixed. Allowing a broken window to go unfixed leaves you prone to many possible unfortunate events. A family member can get hurt, a child or pet can get severely injured or cut from broken glass, and if you have guests or visitors over ,you’re leaving yourself susceptible and liable if your window injures or hurts anyone.

Even when selling a home, sometimes homeowners don’t realize that a broken or damaged window can not only decrease the value of their home and take away curbside appeal, but they could also lead to injuries and leave you open to being sued. 

California Window & Solar understands how annoying replacing a window can be and that’s why we’re here to make the process as simple and easy as possible. Although you may not think your broken or damaged window is a big thing, it is important and can cause much more harm than good both long and short term.

In addition to broken and damaged windows being a liability, severely outdated and warped windows give off the idea that your home is not being maintained properly. While some homeowners don’t care about maintenance, others do. And an unmaintained looking home can set a bad precedent for anyone who is looking to sell their home.

While replacement windows aren’t always in the budget, they are a necessity when you own a home. It would cost much less to replace a window than having an accident and being liable and still have to replace the window down the road.

In addition to being a hazard, broken or damaged windows will not work properly, leaving you susceptible to air leaks. Leaks can cause an increase in your already high bills and uncomfortable temperatures in your home. They also leave you with the inability to properly block UV rays and sun damage in your home, increased outside noise that leaks in, and an inability to protect your home from water leaks and inclement weather.

So, if you have any broken or severely damaged windows and think you can hold off on fixing them for a while, think again. California Window & Solar is the trusted choice for Mission Viejo, CA replacement windows and we want to help you pick the best windows for your home and budget. We’ll safely install your new windows so you won’t have to worry about it and we’ll do it with our award winning, white glove service at no extra charge.

Contact us today at 1-888-831-2001 and speak with one of our friendly and knowledgeable staff members. Or visit us at 2915 Red Hill Ave, Suite B104, Costa Mesa, CA 92626. There’s a reason why we’re the number one choice for Mission Viejo, CA replacement windows. Call us today and see why.

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

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.
