Select this option if you need multiple types or assistance in determining the best type for your project.

Allow natural light into top floor rooms such as attics that may not have walls for windows.

Like casement windows, they crank out, but the sash opens upward instead of sideways.

STORM WINDOWS Protect older windows against energy inefficiency and are an economical option.

These windows feature a sliding track allowing the sashes to move left and right.

SINGLE HUNG WINDOWS Only the bottom sash opens. The top half of the window is stationary.

Both sashes move up and down. Generally both sashes will pop in for easy cleaning.

BAY/BOW WINDOWS Generally protrude out from the exterior wall of a home, creating a wide view and wide window sill inside.

CASEMENT WINDOWS These windows crank out and allow maximum air flow in and out of a home.

BASEMENT EGRESS These maximize light in a basement and are also used for safety.

Redondo Beach Replacement Windows

Redondo Beach replacement windows are designed to fit on your home's existing California window frames, eliminating the need to install new construction windows. Also known as retrofit windows, replacement products can reduce the cost of providing more energy efficient insulation for your California home. In the sunny, temperate climate of Redondo Beach, the beauty of the ocean may distract you from thoughts of replacement windows. However, high performance windows are as important in Southern CA as they are anywhere else in the US.

The sparkling beaches, colorful downtown area and inviting piers make Redondo Beach the ideal place to live and work if you love the relaxed pace of Southern California. Residents of Redondo Beach must pay for the beautiful surroundings in the form of higher housing costs. Investing in Redondo Beach replacement windows may be one of the most effective ways to increase the resale value of your home, provided you choose high grade, high performance brands.

UV Resistant California Windows

In Redondo Beach, keeping residences at a consistent interior temperature and preventing solar heat gain are more important than insulating homes against the cold. Although Southern CA does have occasional chilly weather, temperatures are generally mild enough that residents don't worry a lot about the costs of heating. On the other hand, the powerful sunshine in CA can cause rapid heat accumulation inside a home as light passes through the windows.

UV resistant Redondo Beach replacement windows are protected with a metal based coating that blocks the transmission of harmful rays through the panes. This protective product, known as low emissivity coating, is applied to one of the two panes in a double glazed window to minimize heat and light gain inside your house. Low emissivity, or low E, coating protects furniture, carpets and window treatments from the fading effects of ultraviolet light. Although this microscopic coating reduces transmission of UV rays, it does not block daylight transmission.

When you purchase low E Redondo Beach replacement windows, it's important to choose a home replacing model that's designed to keep heat out of the home. Some low E glass is more effective at preventing heat loss from inside the residence than at preventing heat accumulation inside. Low E replacement products that minimize solar heat gain should be rated with a low Solar Heat Gain Coefficient, or SHGC. The SHGC measures the amount of solar radiation transmitted through the glass.

Low E replacement products that maintain warm temperatures inside the home have a low U value. The U value measures the amount of heat transferred through the window assembly. The less heat is transferred through the frame and the glass, the lower the U value and the warmer your Redondo Beach home will be. The U value may also be expressed as its inverse, the R value. A high R value or a low U value indicate that the product is highly resistant to air infiltration.

Managing Daylight Transmission

While many Redondo Beach homeowners want to minimize solar heat gain by cutting down on the transmission of UV rays, they also want to maintain an adequate transmission of daylight into their rooms. Natural light is an important source of illumination, and most homeowners don't want to lose the benefits of daylight in their homes. In your search for replacement products, check the visible transmittance level of Redondo Beach replacement windows.

The visible transmittance level is a measurement of how much daylight is transmitted through the glass in Redondo Beach replacement windows. While low E coatings do not prevent light from passing through Redondo Beach replacement windows, this metallic substance can diminish the light's clarity. The visible transmittance, or VT, is represented as a number between 0 and 1, with 1 being the highest degree of transmittance and 0 being the lowest.

Ratings for solar heat gain, heat transfer and visible transmittance are assigned by the National Fenestration Council, an independent organization that evaluates doors, skylights and window units to determine their energy performance. The SHGC, the U value and the VT are evaluated by this agency in an effort to help consumers choose the most efficient products on the market. Because these ratings evaluate different criteria, homeowners can fine tune their search for Redondo Beach replacement windows to find models that fit their specifications.

Window replacement represents a sizable financial commitment, but many homeowners find that this investment improves the appearance and comfort level of their homes. If saving energy and contributing to the health of the environment are important to your household, you'll be satisfied with the way Redondo Beach replacement windows reduce your home's energy usage. Compare estimates from several providers to find products and installation services that fit your budget and your home's heating, cooling and lighting needs.
