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.

Houzz Review Best of Houzz

Tashmans and I have a long standing in the design trade. I use Tashmans for all my projects that need windows and doors.

They are very reliable, knowledgeable regarding suggestions of products, great to work with, and give excellent service. Work ethics and scheduling a plus.

I had the pleasure to work with Kenny and his family designing their personal kitchen.(see deZign services inc on Houzz, Sherman Oaks kitchen) I executed the design and space planning and with their own good taste selected the cabinet design and excellent choice of colors and materials.

They have worked on my house also, adding doors and windows. Here here! I wouldn't hire anyone else.

Walked into Tashman to get some keys done, happily Brandon walked over to help me, and assisted me very well. I then decided to get everything I needed for a home improvement project, Brandon happily helped me find everything I needed! Thanks to the store and Brandon so much for their great service.

I would like to recognize the man that came out to show me the window for his exceptional service. He was the person that made the deal with me and gave me the appraisal.

Houzz Review Best of Houzz

Tashman Home Center installed my soundproof Citiquiet windows. All of the staff at Tashman's is highly knowledgable and wonderful to work with. Lucia, Leslie, Kenny, and Bert were great. I had so many questions during the planning phase. and they eagerly answered all of them. They even got the frames powder coated to the color that I wanted. I have a very difficult work schedule and they were eager to work within my timeframe. Everyone I dealt with was very professional and friendly. One of my windows had to be relocated out by 4 inches. It was a very difficult job. The employee, Tony, who handled that part of the job has 26 years experience with windows and it took that level of experience to figure out what needed to be done. He did an excellent job. The entire installation crew was very professional.

I have been living in my loft in Downtown LA for the past 8 years . . .

I'm an Interior Designer who's been using and recommending Tashman's for years. They have been taking great care of the windows and doors in my condominium building and I've recently had them do some work i my own unit. I just love them. They are so professional and use the best quality materials and labor, are very careful to protect everything so nothing gets damaged. They are on time and trustworthy and the people are very nice. It's a pleasure to do business with them and I would recommend them highly to anyone who wants to insure they will be getting the kind of lasting quality and beauty we all want.

Houzz Review Best of Houzz

With only two weeks to replace some large custom-size sliding screens at a property we manage, I called Tashman for help. They were prompt to reply, quick to bid, fast and efficient in making the screens within my time constraints. The installation was smooth and stress-free. I will not hesitate to call Tashman again for another project.

Thank to Kenny and Lucia our properties always have the TLC they need. You can count on Tashman's for quality work, attention to detail and great customer service. They are a dependable company with a highly competent staff.

First time I shopped here and I'll be back. I'm a handyman and I work all over town, so it's great to know where all the small hardware stores are.

Today I needed a special item for installing a window. Because they specialize in windows and doors, I gave them a call from the job site.

They had what I needed as well as the knowledge and expertise to go with it.

I'm a big fan now. Thanks
