When you think about getting replacement windows in Auburn, CA, your house is what comes to mind first. But what about the garage? If it has windows, you might need to look into their integrity as well. As long as you are getting windows, you may want to extend the project into the garage. If there are windows there, inspect them and see what you need. Here are a few details to consider.
The Garage Use
What do you use your garage for? Is it simply for vehicle storage overnight? Do you have boxes and other items in the garage for storage? Do you use it as a workshop as well? The way you use the garage will help you decide what kind of windows you need. If there are just vehicles in there, you don’t necessarily need windows that are as energy efficient as those on the house. However, if you heat the garage or cool it and use it as a workshop, or somewhere that you store items that need temperature control, you do need that efficiency. Think about your garage uses and go from there.
Single pane glass doesn’t come standard in most windows today, but you can still get that type of glass if you just need a window to cover up an old window slot. If you keep things locked up in the garage, like your vehicle, or you don’t keep anything of worth in the garage, single pane glass will work fine. It’s easy to break, however, so if you want added security for your vehicles or anything else you place in the garage, having double or even triple pane glass may be important to you. Think about security as you gauge the various options.
Normal garage needs may not dictate fading concerns. But if you are storing an old vehicle you want to preserve, quilts your grandmother made, or other items, you might be concerned about what the sun can do to them over time. Getting low-E coatings on the glass can prevent UV rays from entering the garage and fading the items you want to protect. The coating also helps prevent heat from the sun from entering so the space will feel more comfortable as well.
