Professional Installation: Ensuring Your Windows Perform Perfectly
In addition to the type and style of window affecting the overall look, and the glass affecting the overall energy-efficiency, it’s the installation of the window that can be the most important part of window replacement. When getting estimates for window replacement, it’s important to ask how the window is going to be installed, inquire about the quality of materials that will be used, and ask if the technicians/installers are experienced and certified putting in replacement windows. If your windows are not installed correctly, you might as well leave the windows open.

What Is Your Ideal Home Style?

No matter if your project is an individual window replacement or part of a more extensive renovation, our experts are here to help you explore your options and find the right solutions for your project.
This style is common among historic homes built in the 1700’s on the East Coast and in New England. Originally designed to help fend off harsh winters, Cape Cod architecture is also beloved for its classic, cozy appearance, making it a favorite in Southern California communities like Coronado, Newport Beach, La Jolla and Irvine.
There are many variations of what is considered modern home architecture from European Modern, first designed by Le Corbusier to the Coastal variations found in Del Mar and Huntington Beach. This style typically incorporates natural light into the design of the home by utilizing large windows and doors that often work together with other elements, such as metal, rock or exposed wood. Many different variations of this style are popular and present in areas like Costa Mesa, Mission Viejo, La Jolla, Del Mar and Rancho Santa Fe.
This style is popular in Southern California for obvious reasons: the easy access from the front to the back of the house, arching doors and windows, and simple but elegant design. Spanish style homes are quite prevalent in inland communities like Lake Elsinore, Escondido or Rancho Santa Fe, as well as in coastal communities like Dana Point, San Clemente and Point Loma.
Tudor homes were an early colonial and English style that offered a different look from Cape Cod style architecture. Tudor is often distinguished by the use of natural light along with dark features and elements. While few of these homes are present in Southern California, some of the best examples can be found in areas such as Mission Hills, Point Loma, Del Mar, San Juan Capistrano and Rancho Santa Margherita.
The most common approach to replacing windows is a window insert. Insert window replacement is where the original window frame is left inside the wall cavity, and a new window with a frame is custom built to fit inside the existing window frame opening. Insert window replacement is more expensive than sash replacement but usually more economical than full frame replacement. The team at Veracity Window and Door works tirelessly to offer our customers the right window built with high quality materials that is then expertly installed by our factory trained employee installers.
If your exterior trim work is in good shape, it does not need to be replaced. If you have a moisture or rot problem on your trim, covering it up with the capping process (when a a thin metal layer over your existing trim) is not recommended. Homeowners can completely replace the exterior trim (sill, nosing, brick moulding) with composite materials like fiber cement, milled PVC, or Miratec.
Full frame/New construction
Full Frame Window Replacement is necessary if the air and moisture barriers where the windows were initially installed are broken, or if the existing window frames have rotted. In a Full Frame Replacement, all interior casing and exterior trim must be removed, replaced, and re-finished in most cases. The siding or stucco on the exterior of the home must be cut back to correctly add the flashing systems that manage heat transfer, moisture, and air around the window. Proper methods of installation and all premium materials must be used.
