If your South Pasadena home is graced with historic wood windows, their structural integrity may be compromised due to age and exposure to the elements. As the first line of defense for your home, your aging historic wood windows may be the major contributing factor to high energy costs each month. If the aesthetics of your windows are gone and your curb appeal isn’t what it used to be, and if drafts and air leakage are evident, replacing, restoring, or repairing your windows should be a serious consideration. As window professionals, Tashman’s focuses on historic wood window replacement, and our South Pasadena customers reap the benefits. Once historic wood windows are replaced, the equity of homes immediately increases, energy costs become noticeably lowered, curb appeal is renewed, and HVAC systems operate less frequently, prolonging the life of the systems.
Need Professional Assistance? Tashman Home Center Can Help!
As a South Pasadena homeowner, you may be familiar with the term, Historic Preservation Overlay Zones, or HPOZ. Having access to expert guidance related to HPOZ is critical in order to successfully maneuver through the detailed HPOZ approval process. Tashman’s is a certified HPOZ vendor with a thorough understanding of all HPOZ mandates. The Tashman team, personally, assists homeowners in South Pasadena and the entire Los Angeles metro area regarding HPOZ requirements that must be adhered to. We will be with you every step of the way.
We Know the HPOZ Process Like the Back of Our Hand
When historic wood window replacement is part of elevating a home’s aesthetics and structural integrity, Kim Tashman, who holds a Master’s Degree from the USC School of Architecture in Historic Preservation/Heritage Conservation, assists our South Pasadena customers with every HPOZ detail. Kim leads our team when HPOZ projects are at hand.
The HPOZ Process is One We Know Very Well
You may be surprised to learn that Los Angeles has 30 designated Historic Preservation Overlay Zones! Within that entity lies a vast array of neighborhoods of 25,000 properties in addition to 15 neighborhoods that are currently applying for HPOZ designation.
Any significant modifications to homes within an HPOZ must be fully approved by the HPOZ Board. If your South Pasadena neighborhood is officially deemed a historic district, the Tashman team is ready to help you meet the HPOZ guidelines and determine if your historic wood window replacement project would fall under HPOZ guidelines. Our team will provide all the necessary information you will need to move forward.
Detailed 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 our expertise. 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 a prominent panel comprised of residents, a Realtor, a contractor, and an architect – all, of whom, make up the “HPOZ Board”.
The HPOZ ensures appropriate modifications are embedded within historic structures, and it equips South Pasadena property owners with financial and technical tools that give historic structures renewed beauty and enhanced market value.
