Room With a View
When it came time to replace the original double-hung windows in this Berkeley Hills home, the owners found a way to enjoy their spectacular view of the Bay 24 hours a day, even when they weren’t in the room…. Replacing double-hung windows doesn’t mean that the best they could hope for would be to return the historical windows to their original state. We knew they could do better than that, and they had an idea even we hadn’t considered.
Wooden Window installed new sash windows on the upper floor of this Berkeley Hills home but upgraded them to laminated glass — reducing noise from the outside and providing UV protection while keeping the sash looking just as it did originally.
Barbara and I want to tell you how much we love our windows and what a pleasure it was to work with Wooden Windows.
On top of that, we were also so pleased with all of our interactions with you and your colleagues. Antonio and Keenan were the perfect combination of pleasant and professional. They arrived on time, did what they said they would do, and left a clean house behind them. They did a masterful job, spending a huge amount of time making one of the XOXs look perfect despite the way the window frame sagged far out of true. We also appreciate the great job your hardware person did in finding good pairs for the partial latches we found. And last, you were wonderful: we appreciated your wise advice on the design and the project as a whole, including answering our endless questions.
The view from the upstairs is thrilling, and the owners found a way to enjoy it even when they were downstairs. They installed a high-definition camera that captured the upstairs view and piped it to a monitor just off their entryway. Day or night, upstairs or downstairs, the overlook on the bay is now always at hand.
