Historic Wood Windows / HPOZ and Preservation

When and How to Select Historic Wood Windows Replacements

Replacement windows for historic homes can be a challenge. People generally consider replacing historic windows when they break or are no longer functional, if they become energy inefficient or if they are aesthetically unappealing. Replacement windows for old houses are different from standard replacement windows.

When updating windows on historic properties it is important to find appropriate products to maintain the proper authentic aesthetics while also giving the homeowner the benefits of new materials. Milgard® Essence Series® windows are an excellent choice for historic properties. The wood interiors of Essence Series help keep the integrity and the historic aspect of the windows and also provide energy efficiency. At the same time, the fiberglass exterior reduces the maintenance of the windows.

What is HPOZ?

An HPOZ is a Historic Preservation Overlay Zone, also known as a historic district. Per this preservation program, exterior changes to properties in these zones need to follow the rules laid out by the same.

How did HPOZ come into being?

The idea behind the conception of the HPOZ arose from the need to preserve historically important structures, cultural and architectural properties. The way the HPOZ works is,

  • Regions are identified as containing such resources.
  • Areas are adopted as an HPOZ by the City Planning Commission and the City Council through a zone change process. As a part of this procedure, all property owners are notified of this change.
  • Most types of exterior changes or enhancements to properties in an HPOZ require written approval from the Planning Department.

What steps to take if you want to make changes to your property in an HPOZ area?

  • Research online about HPOZ extensively.
  • Contact an HPOZ Planner.
  • He will review the project.
  • He will guide you through the HPOZ approval process

Please note, the HPOZ Board does not review all projects.

One of the most important things that you have to keep in mind while planning for changes / enhancements to your property in an HPOZ area is that you need to make sure that the change does not alter the historic character of your property.

Historic wood windows form an integral part of the resources in an HPOZ area, and need to be restored. Traditional and historic wood window manufacturers meet the demand for HPOZ wood windows in such areas.

Having your property in an HPOZ area has quite a few advantages. Although your property is subject to additional review processes, the value of your property is much more than similar ones outside the area. There is a sense of community pride, being in an area considered to be a historic district. Also, per the Mills Act program, you are eligible to enter into a contract with the City that can help you enjoy substantial property tax savings.

Maybe I have low standards from years of going to larger stores, but I had a perfect experience today and will only shop here from now on. 4 employees were working and the store was busy, but we were offered help without having to seek them out. They were knowledgeable and friendly and it was clearly a place that really cares about its customers. Thanks for your help!

These guys are great. Even though curbside Pick up is on the decline here in LA, they made it work which enables me to keep my 92-year-old father-in-law happy. I can get him the tools he wants, which allows him to do the things he wants to do in his garden while also keeping him safe during Covid. Thank you so much for that!

Tashman is great. I recommend them to anyone. I've recommended them to everyone at my condo, and made them the standard for all of our windows. I've used them for all of our parts and supplies at our condo as well. You can walk in with a little trinket, and someone will come to the counter with the exact part with the knowledge of how to install it.

If you live anywhere near this hardware store you are lucky. They have a great selection and can typically order anything that they don't have in stock. The staff is knowledgeable and friendly. There is a parking area in the back although it is tight and limited and sometimes easier to park either on Genesee or on Santa Monica when possible.

I would recommend them. We've used them for windows and patio doors. They did a great job. The person that came out, measured, and gave us more information on how the windows would work sent us a quote very quickly so we could decide. It was a great service.

They were nice enough to break open a 10-pack of face masks for me during the wildfires last November. They sold me three, which I used in LA when the smoke was super bad, and gave to friends later that weekend in San Francisco.

Contacted Tashman's today in hope to discuss multi-slide doors and Title 24 requirements. I filled out the online request a quote and Joey called me within 2 hrs of me requesting a quote. He was extremely knowledgeable and willing to share his knowledge with me to help better understand differing information I had received. Truly appreciate him taking the time to help educate a total stranger...that is truly excellent customer service! I don't think our needs align with products they offer, but I wish they did. This company is on top of it! Thanks again Joey for your insight and education, can't thank you enough.
