Some basic replacements in an Eichler home are sliding window, sliding
doors and the large fixed window panes in wood frames.
We have replaced doors and windows in many Eichler homes. We replace the
existing doors and windows with new products that offer great insulating
value while continuing to maintain the original Eichler look and feel.
For people who love their Eichler home this is very important and increases
your home's resale value. We recommend and install Arcadia Products
in Eichler homes. They are located in Vernon, California and also have
a location in Connecticut. Arcadia supplies an aluminum framed product
that is available in the popular clear anodized finish (silver), black
walnut (dark bronze), or white. Custom colors are also available for special
applications. These doors and windows can be glazed with clear or tinted
insulated glass, low-e insulated glass, and obscure glasses for bathroom
or sidelight applications.
For the large fixed-glass windows the Eichler homes are renowned for, we
will remove the outside wood trim and existing 1/4" glass, install
the new tempered low-e insulated glass, cut the outside trims to accommodate
the thicker glass and re-install. When we are all done the sight line
around the windows should be same as before, and in most cases only minor
touch-up painting is required by the homeowner.
Our objective in any Eichler remodel is always to upgrade the home with
the latest energy efficient doors and windows without changing the original design.
