Sample Window & Door Projects

Whether you are a looking for replacement windows and doors for your residence or apartment complex, or you are a contactor looking for new construction windows and doors for your next project, we are here to help. Below are a few of our recent projects:

St. Helena Residence

Yountville Town Hall

Built in the 1920’s, the Yountville Town Hall is a classic mission-style historical building that went through a six-month restoration to improve earthquake resistance. We were originally tasked with removing all of the old rotting wood windows and installing new energy-efficient wood windows. However, due to the historical designation of the building, a decision was to keep the existing window frames and refurbish or replace all 74 of the wood sashes.

Since most of the existing hardware was damaged and the sashes were rotted beyond repair, we made exact replicas of the sashes and installed new antique brass hardware throughout. Although the existing windows were not energy-efficient, we installed 3M Thinsulate energy-efficient glass film to improve them dramatically. The end result is a beautifully restored building that is more efficient while retaining all of the historical aspects of the era in which it was built.

Clos Pegase Winery - Calistoga

The winery had existing custom made Honduran mahogany windows and doors that were badly damaged by weather exposure and out of square. The old glass had applied tint that was cracking and falling off. We replaced 1,183 panes of glass with solar-cool bronze glass for shading and efficiency. We also refurbished the 36 French doors by removing each one, squaring them up, and installing new glass, wood stops, weather-stripping and door sweeps.

Oakville Residence

The existing wood French doors were badly rotted at the sills from sun and water exposure. We replaced all the doors with Weathershield Premium aluminum clad wood doors. Since the customer wanted to retain their existing antique brass hardware, we ordered the doors without any hardware and cut out custom mortise boxes to install the old hardware. Also, we retained the existing wood interior screens by mounting them on the inside of the new wood doors. Since the grids on the screens did not line up with the grids on the new doors, we moved grids on the screens and installed new screen material.

Atlas Peak Residence

This home has beautiful views of the vineyards below, so the homeowner wanted a solution that allowed them to open up their wall from the corner and have the door panels disappear into the surrounding walls. To accomplish this, we installed a 90-degree corner-less pocket door with beautiful alder wood on the interior of the door panels and aluminum-cladding on the exterior of the door panels to provide weather resistance. The one side of the door is 12 feet wide and the other side of the door is 10 feet wide. By not having a corner post where the doors meet and hiding the door panels in the wall pocket, the doors literally disappear when opened and allow the beautiful outdoor landscape to come inside.

Calistoga Residence

This beautiful Calistoga residence went through a major renovation in 2013. Since the home has beautiful views of the surrounding hillsides and vineyards, the homeowners requested a solution that offered maximum glass. To accomplish this, we installed Fleetwood aluminum Kona 3800 series windows and Norwood 3000 series doors using the state-of-the-art Prosoco Fast Flashing system on the installation.

The main door is a 4-panel OXXO sliding glass door measuring 16 feet wide by 12 feet tall. On top of the door, we installed a transom measuring 16 feet wide by 2 feet tall. Although each door panel weighed hundreds of pounds, the massive roller enable them to move easily with minimal effort. The result is a dramatic opening that offers maximum views of the beautiful landscape.

Napa Residence

Woodbridge Village Retirement Center – St. Helena

American Window Systems replaced all of the windows and sliding glass doors in this 50-unit apartment complex. In total, we replaced 157 windows and 45 sliding glass doors using the Ply Gem Pro Series product line. Since the occupants were living in the apartments while the work was being performed, great care was taken to limit noise and debris.

Lake Berryessa Residence

Complete renovation on this beautiful residence near Lake Berryessa. The old wood windows were removed and new thermally-broken All-Weather Architectural aluminum windows and doors were installed. A cool feature of this project were the offset corner-glazed windows we installed in the bathroom so the view of the vineyards outside were not broken up by a window frame in the corner.
