Major Window Replacement Project in Oakland

When Richard Gleason and his wife moved into their new home in Oakland in 1981, little did they know that a decade later they would be rebuilding their home from the ground up.

In 1991, their home was destroyed by the devastating Oakland firestorm. Using the same footprint and floor plan, the Gleasons rebuilt, finishing the 1,600-square-foot home at 6323 Acacia in 1993.

Now the home has undergone another major project, replacing 42 window sets in the house with modern aluminum-clad windows from Marvin Windows and Truitt & White. The project, which replaced all the windows in the home except for a handful in the rear, began in November of 2017 and was completed in May 2018.

The windows needed replacement after almost 30 years of use and weather damage that caused wood rot and leaks. Some windows in the rear did not need to be replaced because they are in a protected area. The designer/architect of the project was the Gleasons’ daughter Diane Martin and her firm.

Expert installation was performed by an experienced Marvin installer referred by Truitt & White.

Specifications and ordering were guided by a professional sales team member in our Berkeley showroom. “It was a complicated affair, but it’s a great improvement and was well worth it,” said Gleason, a retired electrical power engineer.
