TYPES OF REPLACEMENT WINDOWS IN SAN FRANCISCO, CA

  • Double-Hung Windows
    Double-hung windows offer a classic look, easy to clean, and are one of the popular window options. Double-hungs have operable upper and lower sashes, which can be lowered separately or together for heating purposes. Lowering the top sash allows warm air near the ceiling to escape through it while cool air is encouraged in below by raising the bottom window pane; this feature is especially useful if you live on a second floor because there’s no ladder needed!
  • Single-Hung Windows
    Single-hung windows are similar to double hung models, but only the bottom sash is operable. Unlike their more common counterpart, some single-hanging window units allow you to pivot the glass inward so that it’s easier for cleaning purposes too!
  • Sliding Windows
    Sliding windows are a great way to easily keep your home well ventilated without compromising the security of your property. They have one or more panels that move from side-to-side, so you can open up half of the window for some fresh air and not worry about someone being able to get in as much.
  • Accent Windows
    Accent windows are available in a standard rectangular design or shapes that offer more visual variety such as an octagon. These accent-windows allow you to have more control over the natural light and ventilation of your room without sacrificing style.
  • Glass Block Windows
    With glass block windows, you can have both privacy and light in your home. The thick blocks of break-resistant material are sealed together with mortar to form a window that is not only ventilated but also provides insulation from extreme heat or cold. Some models come with built-in vents so they may be tilted open when needed for fresh air circulation while still providing the same level of protection against outside elements as fixed windows do; others were designed specifically for use in laundry rooms where an outlet was included for dryer hose attachment.
  • Basement Hopper Windows
    Basement hopper windows are a design feature that can provide some relief for those who live in basements. They open from the top, which is a function of their hinged bottom frames to allow airflow into the basement and they’re typically placed low on an exterior wall so as not to disturb neighbors with any noise or light coming out.
  • Other Types of Windows
    • Projection Windows
      The house is surrounded by projection windows that gently extend outwards. The bow window and the bay window are two different types of projecting windows, but they both project further from the house than a regular old rectangular one would.
    • Picture Windows
      Picture windows are an excellent addition to any home, providing a clear view of the outdoors and giving lots of natural light.
    • Casement Windows
      Casement windows are a popular choice for many homes because they provide an easy way to let air circulate through the space. The hinges on one side of this window allow it to swing inwards while at its other end, giving owners the opportunity to open and close them as desired.
    • Awning Windows
      Awning windows have a top-hinged sash that tilts out from the bottom. The design of an awning window helps keep rain and other weather outside when you’re sitting in your living room, reading on the couch with open curtains!
    • Storm Windows
      Storm windows can lower the cost of living in a home by adding insulation and reducing heat transfer. The space between storm windows and existing single-pane windows will form an insulated barrier, keeping out cold air from outside to help maintain warmth inside your house.

A MAJOR HOME IMPROVEMENT PROJECT

Home improvement is a vast topic and can range from simple projects such as window replacement to more complicated tasks like adding an addition onto your house. Homeowners in San Francisco should consider the benefits of these projects by looking for ways they can use their space better, or even how they could add on to their existing home while preserving its integrity.

Replacement windows in San Francisco are one of those projects that can be a good investment and will likely improve your house. Windows replacement is considered to be among the top five home improvement tasks with an increased value, so it’s something worth considering if you’re planning on selling soon or not just yet.

OPTIONS THAT ARE AVAILABLE WITH WINDOW REPLACEMENT SAN FRANCISCO, CA

Depending on the size and style of window that you choose for your home, you could end up having many different window options. The type of storm windows or screens can be one option. You will also have many options for energy efficiency.

Energy is energy efficiency is essential for any part of the country, regardless of whether you live in San Francisco or anywhere else. Any chance that you get to save money on your utility bills for heating or cooling your home is going to add up over time.

When it comes to windows, you can choose from a single pane of glass which is not going to protect your home from the cold air during the winter or keep cool air inside your home in the summer, and it will be lightweight, exposing it to some significant problems over time.

Double glazed windows are the most popular concerning energy efficiency. Double glazing means that you have two panes of glass that are separated with a gap of air. That air is vacuum-sealed out to create a barrier between the outside air in the air inside your home. You can have that gap filled with argon or krypton gas to increase the energy efficiency.

To protect your home during the summer against the intense heat of the summer sun’s UV rays, you can have different types of film coatings added to the glass which will cut back on the UV radiation getting into your home. It is the UV radiation that generates heat and causes the furniture and other items to fade over time.

REPLACEMENT WINDOWS & DOORS FAQS

Does a-TaylorMade Window work on commercial properties as well as residences?

We are residential property specialists. We work on single-family homes, duplexes, condominiums, townhomes, apartment buildings, and non-high-rise student dormitories and residence halls.

What questions should I ask a prospective contractor?

Ask about the contractor’s recent experience with window installations such as yours. Find out the terms of the contractor’s installation warranty, distinct from the manufacturer’s product warranty. Inquire if work on your home will be done by the contractor’s own employees or by subcontractors. And ask the contractor to describe the installation process for the types of windows and doors you are discussing.

How can I make determinations about window quality?

You can take confidence in evaluation and rankings performed collaboratively by two nationally recognized nonprofit consumer protection organizations: the Window & Door Manufacturers Association and the National Fenestration Rating Council. An NFRC label indicates product performance in several important criteria: U-factor (a measurement of insulation capabilities); solar heat gain (a window’s resistance to warming caused by sunlight); visible light transmittance (the measurement of how much light passes through a window); and air leakage.
