Save Energy: 30+ Years History in the Bay Area

This meticulous 1920’s Craftsman on Baker Street presented a particular challenge.  It is a two unit building, upper and lower.  We only replaced the windows on the upper unit. You can see from these pictures that it is very difficult to see the before/after difference. That’s exactly what we were going for!  The last thing you want is to have the replacement windows stand out as new and flashy on these beautiful, historic buildings. To get his look just right, we had these wood-framed, dual-pane windows custom-made to exactly match the originals. At Save Energy Co., we don’t just get the job done, we get it done right.Wouldn’t it be a wonderful thing if there were a family-owned, local window and door shop that knew the ins and outs of replacing windows and doors in San Francisco?  Look no further because you’ve found the one!

We’re Save Energy Windows and Doors.  Though we’re now based in Petaluma, our roots are in the city of San Francisco.  It’s where we opened our doors 35 years ago, and where we still continue to do business today: both in the city and across the Bay Area.

We are grateful for the start San Francisco gave us and we’ve always done work here.  This means we’ve seen all the code and regulation changes that have happened over 3+ decades.  We know the people in the building department.

Bottom line: whether your home is in San Francisco or elsewhere in the Bay Area, we know what it take to get things done and get them done right – on-time, the first time.

We know what make San Francisco & the Bay Area unique

Did you know San Francisco requires a certain type of window on the front of buildings while the sides and back can have another? We do.

Did you know some jobs require permits and some don’t and if you do a permit-required job without a permit, you’ll get fined – but only in some districts?  Do you know which ones? We do.

And then there are the restrictions on historical buildings!

Suffice it to say, window replacement and door installation projects can be full of surprise – if your contractor isn’t familiar with the territory.  Which brings us to this point – did you know the City requires a qualified contractor to do the work?  Or does it?

Let us take the confusion out of contracting
