Brightening Up a Space with Replacement Windows

by Joan Custer

Limited Natural Lighting

How do you turn a house shaded with trees, low lit, and limited windows to get natural lighting and brighten up space?

The homeowner’s main vision was to lighten the area by tearing down walls and allow light to travel freely throughout the house.

Replacing the Old Windows

The first priority was replacing old aluminum windows. Milgard Tuscany Series® vinyl windows, which included a double-glazed Low-E bay, and horizontal slider windows were installed to open the space and improve energy efficiency throughout the home. The new vinyl windows really helped draw sunlight deep into the home.

The large bay window also gave the home a more contemporary look and opened the rooms to beautiful views of the garden. 


“It’s a world of difference! We've been using Milgard for over 15 years in the remodeling business and are completely satisfied with the look and performance,” said Mike Asadourian of R.A.M. Construction.
