Video Clip: Remodeling a 40-year-old Home


John and Debbie had focused their life on taking care of their three children and putting them through school. This left their Danville, California home, owned since 1964, in a deferred maintenance mode. A sagging foundation, rotted wood and noise pollution from a heavily trafficked road presented a real challenge to the Schafgan’s. Quality and aesthetics were important to Debbie, as they considered a remodel.

Asking The Carey Brothers

The Carey Brothers were brought in for a top-to-bottom remodel, complete with 16 new Milgard® Tuscany® Series vinyl windows that helped the home feel brand new again.

“Windows are not an expense, they are an investment,” said Morris Carey. “We use Milgard for their Warranty and their integrity. Milgard stands behind their products.”

The vinyl windows helped reduce the noise factor and improved the energy efficiency. “It can get over 100 degrees in the summer and the house stays very comfortable,” said John Schafgan. “Plus, we’re on a busy road and it’s very quiet when the windows are closed.”

James Carey touts the great support from Milgard customer service. The Carey Brothers use Milgard windows and patio doors again and again in their remodeling projects for a reliable product their customers can count on.
