San Jose Windows More than Meets History’s Preservation Challenge

A Historical Staple Of all the San Jose windows being offered by contractors like SGK Home Solutions these days, wood is arguably the oldest. Wood was readily available to homebuilders at the time, and most homes then had wood windows, until tougher materials came to the scene. The problem of replacing historical wood windows isn’t just limited to the Corvallis structure, but also to many homes officially designated as a historic landmark house.

San Jose, despite bristling with modern buildings, have over 200 historic landmarks around the city; about 30 percent of them are for residential use. Chapter 13.48 of the San Jose, CA Code of Ordinances requires residents of registered historic homes to seek approval of the council before making any changes to the exterior.
