If you live in or near Vallejo, CA, you live in a beautiful area surrounded by gorgeous views. We have it all: the San Pablo and Grizzly Bays, Napa Valley and the Wine Country—and we are located at the center of the state; perfect for travels to the Pacific Northwest and the hybrid Spanish-American flavors in Southern Cal.
So, what do you look at when you sit down for your morning coffee or early yoga stretches to jump start your day? More specifically, what windows are you looking through at your surroundings (and are you happy with them)?
At American Window Systems, our team has dedicated years to our clients and their home windows. We know there are pros and cons to every option. Check out the following for the various window types you can choose for your Vallejo home!
- Horizontal Slider Window (double or single):
Pros: easy operation, easy cleaning, low cost.
Cons: can only open half of window at a time; somewhat limited ventilation.
- Single- or Double-Hung Windows
Pros: a very classic look with countless styles, materials, and color options; tilt-out model available.
Cons: can only open half of window at a time; somewhat limited ventilation; requires very good weather stripping.
- Bay & Bow Windows
Pros: both styles create a unique windowsill; add class and extra square footage to any room, multi-view, increased natural light and air circulation.
Cons: repairs often times require total replacement.
- Casement Windows
Pros: easy operation, maximize breezes and views (of the Bays!), tight close and inconspicuous hardware.
Cons: extra-large casement windows can actually weigh themselves down over the years which may cause more difficult closure.
- Garden Window
Pros: added natural light and storage space (for plants, ripening produce, collectibles, etc.).
Cons: increases solar heat indoors (which is the goal, for most residents, to create a mini-greenhouse).
- Geometric Windows
Pros: very unique and conducive to a contemporary home aesthetic.
Cons: fixed, inoperable, no ventilation, more difficult to clean.
- Awning Windows
Pros: good for bringing natural light and added airflow into smaller spaces; can be left open during rainy weather (rain runs down and away from the sash). Low in cost.
Cons: if close to an outdoor walkway, these windows may cause an obstruction when open; need to be cleaned often.
- Skylight Windows
Pros: add sunlight to any space; lower heating bills.
Cons: difficult to clean; can become leaky over time.
- Picture Windows
Pros: beautiful backdrop “picture” for any space—especially shared living spaces; made for windy cities, severe environments, and beautiful views—hello, Vallejo!
Cons: fixed, inoperable, no ventilation.
