Tashman Home Center – Altadena’s Window Replacement Source
When it comes to historic wood window replacement, Altadena homeowners need to be familiar with local rules and regulations which is why trusting Tashman’s as a certified HPOZ vendor is so important. Our experts are authorities regarding HPOZ mandates, and our team assists homeowners in Altadena and the entire Los Angeles metro area with the many detailed HPOZ requirements. Tashman’s helps Altadena homeowners navigate the entire HPOZ approval process!
The HPOZ Process – We Know It Very Well
Our expert team is led by Kim Tashman, who holds a Master’s Degree from the USC School of Architecture in Historic Preservation/Heritage Conservation together with our in-house professionals who have keen insight regarding the HPOZ approval process. Their authoritative understanding of the many legal nuances associated with matters related to HPOZ should help put the minds of our Altadena customers at ease.
HPOZ Process – You Can Rely on Our Wealth of Knowledge
Many homeowners are not aware that Los Angeles has 30 designated Historic Preservation Overlay Zones! Those zones incorporate a plethora of neighborhoods comprising 25,000 properties as well as 15 additional neighborhoods that are, currently, applying for HPOZ designation.
If your Altadena home is part of an HPOZ, any notable alterations must be approved by the HPOZ Board. The Tashman team can determine if your historic wood window replacement plan would qualify for meeting the HPOZ guidelines. Tashman’s provides Altadena homeowners with local-government guideline information to ensure they are able to move forward with complete approval.
HPOZ nuances such as board-meeting/city-approval procedures, architectural-layout design approvals, and all the customary layouts and the various steps involved are part of the critical information we provide our Altadena customers. The Los Angeles Historic Preservation Overlay Zone ordinance was passed in 1979, permitting a neighborhood to petition for designation as a historic district. Once designations are approved, any substantial modifications of homes within the zone must receive official approval from the “HPOZ Board” made up of residents, a Realtor, a contractor, and an architect.
The HPOZ ensures appropriate modifications are included within historic structures, and it equips Altadena property owners with financial and technical tools that give historic structures renewed beauty and optimized market value.
