In the city of Vista, California, you’ll find all types of homes, including single-family homes, townhomes, condos, and even some custom homes. The styles of these homes can vary quite a bit, as can their sizes. One thing that all Vista homes have in common is that they all have windows.
When it comes time for those windows to be replaced because they have passed their useful lifespan, Vista homeowners will have to undertake the task of figuring out which replacement windows to have installed in their homes.
The style of replacement windows should match the style of the home, so it’s important to find a replacement window company that sells a variety of windows from which to choose. Some replacement windows have thicker frames to fit in homes with more traditional styling. For homes with modern styling, replacement windows with thinner frames will be more appropriate. With some replacement window manufacturers, other style options are also available, and you can choose from options like decorative grids, colored frames, and different styles of hardware.
Many homeowners looking for replacement windows in Vista are also looking to make their homes more energy efficient. In this case, they should look for windows with a low Solar Heat Gain Coefficient (SHGC) and a low U-Factor number. These are standardized measurements used across the replacement window industry that tell you how good a window is at providing insulation. SHGC measures the amount of solar radiation that is allowed to enter a home, while U-Factor measures heat transfer.
Vista replacement windows should come with a good manufacturer’s warranty as well—preferably a lifetime warranty or better. This will cover the windows in case of manufacturing defects or if things break due to no fault of the homeowner. Some replacement window companies, such as BM Windows, even offer a window installation warranty that can be combined with the manufacturer’s warranty for more complete coverage.
Some good brands of replacement windows that Vista homeowners should consider are Anlin Windows and Monte Verde Windows. Both brands are made specifically for mild climates like that of Vista, California. They also hold up well over time, even in prolonged exposure to the sun.
These brands are only sold by authorized dealers in and around Vista, and can’t be found in home improvement stores. BM Windows is one local replacement window company that sells and installs both Anlin and Monte Verde windows. Anlin is considered a high-end brand of replacement windows, while Monte Verde is a more budget-friendly option. However, both brands have many of the features that Vista homeowners are looking for in replacement windows. They also make patio doors in various styles and in custom sizes.
Michal Bohm, owner of BM Windows says, “You can’t go wrong with either Anlin or Monte Verde windows. We’ve been installing these brands of windows in homes throughout Vista for many years and our customers love how beautiful and energy efficient they are!”
