Be Leery of Cheap Replacement Windows - Window Buying Tips from Window Expo Texas
Your home is where you should feel most safe. To have peace of mind, we often invest in security systems and other methods to deter burglars. However, have you considered whether your windows are providing the best defense against intruders?

Most home invasions are over in a matter of minutes. Typically, a burglar wants to quickly get into your home, grab something of value, and get out as soon as possible. Tightly securing any entry point to your home makes it harder for a thief to steal from you. Approximately, one-fourth of home break-ins occur because a thief has entered through a window as they are often overlooked by homeowners as a vulnerable point of entry.

Because safety and security are among the top priorities at Window Expo, our windows are built from the ground up to keep your home secure. Our Anlin Del Mar windows are AAMA Gold Forced Entry Certified, meaning they’ve passed the most rigorous tests in the industry as defined by the American Architectural Manufacturers Association. These tests are carried out by accredited independent laboratories and analyze structural performance under wind loading, resistance to air leakage and water penetration, and most importantly, forced entry resistance.

To keep your home protected, our windows have several security-minded features. First, continuous interlocking rails block intruders from “jimmying” the lock with a screwdriver. In addition, all of our large and medium-sized windows have enhanced security with dual locks. Finally, you can rest assured that you’ll know whether your windows are locked. With right and left-handed locks that are engineered to always have the lock lever pointed downward when locked, you can tell at a glance if you’ve left a window unlocked.

However, very desperate thieves will sometimes try to break the glass on a window to quickly “smash and grab” items in your home. Our double-strength glass is twice as strong as the industry standard and twice as hard to break at thicknesses of 3.2mm for small windows and 5mm for larger ones. Also, some thieves will try to use a putty knife to quietly remove a pane of glass without breaking it. That’s simply not possible with our windows because the main glass-to-frame seal is on the interior, unlike many of our competitors. Even if the exterior glaze bead is removed, it’s virtually impossible for an intruder to remove the glass without breaking the glass and making an extremely loud noise.

Secure your home with the best windows

When you’re considering replacement windows, make certain to inspect the safety and security features. Otherwise, you may be left out in the cold. We’d love to show you our superior features and help you secure your home. If you’re looking for peace of mind and a window with excellent performance for Texas climates: we’re just a phone call away.

Feel the Difference in our Windows – Here’s How.

Feel the Difference in our Windows – Here’s How

Be Leery of Cheap Replacement Windows - Window Buying Tips from Window Expo Texas
How often do you take a close-up look at the windows at your home? Even when you clean them, you’re likely not focused on small details that make an impact on their performance and appearance. But, at the end of the day, these details can affect your home’s curb appeal and even the energy efficiency of your home.

When it’s time to replace your windows if you can’t touch and feel the new window, how do you know it’s right for your home? With over 75 features and tons of options, our customizable windows are something you need to see firsthand. That’s why we have a conveniently located showroom where you can closely look at our windows and get expert advice from a window specialist. You can also make a same-day appointment and meet with us to get up-close and personal with our Anlin Del Mar windows.

We’ve shown these windows and demonstrated their excellent features to literally thousands of happy customers. Over the years, there are a few attributes that customers are always drawn to:

Superior Frame Quality

Because we are so confident that our windows stand out among all of the options on the market, you can compare our offerings against windows from our competitors in our showroom. We’ve even cut the frames so you can see the interior chambers. Many of our competitors have large, hollow chambers which create poor insulation. However, our Anlin Del Mar windows have a foam fill with low conductance to provide superior thermal insulation. You’ll see the difference when examining the cut-down frames.

Substantial Offset Glass

When customers hold our Anlin Del Mar windows in their hands, they often comment about how substantial they feel. Our windows have sturdy offset glass, which means they’re composed of two panes of glass where one is significantly thicker than the other. This technique helps mitigate the extreme changes in temperature that we often experience in Texas. Also, it is an excellent sound insulator typically reducing exterior sounds by ~20 decibels.

Tons of Customization Options

No matter if your home is mid-century modern or a classic bungalow, our windows can fit right in. We have the perfect range of colors available for your window frames, so there’s always an option that will fit your home. Garden windows, picture windows, casement windows… we have lots of styles to choose from. One feature our customers love is that both the interior and exterior color of the window frames can be individually selected. If the exterior of your home would look best with dark frames: go for it! You can pair it with a nice warm white on the other side, if your interior needs to be brightened up.

Ready to see all the options for yourself?

Call us today to schedule a same-day appointment or make plans to visit our showroom. With the holidays right around the corner, now is the perfect time to get these beautiful custom windows installed. You’ll be comfortable, cozy, and delighted to have an entirely new perspective this winter

Be Leery of Cheap Replacement Windows - Window Buying Tips from Window Expo Texas
Everyone loves a good deal, especially when it comes to home improvement. With so many options for cheap replacement windows, it’s hard to know a truly great deal when you see one. When you’re making this kind of investment in your home, it’s important to weigh three factors into your decision-making process.

Energy Efficiency

A big benefit of new windows is energy efficiency savings. High-quality windows can drive down your monthly energy bill. But you won’t always see big savings if you choose a window poorly.

Some cheap replacement windows lack features such as gas-filled double panes that reduce heat transfer into your home. Filled windows use an inert gas like argon in-between panes to keep heat out of your home in the summer. Cheap window alternatives may also lack low-E glazing, which makes the panes of glass close to the temperature of interior air. Without these two components, homeowners choosing a lower-cost window don’t reap the cost-saving benefits of energy-efficient windows. The amount saved by purchasing cheap windows is completely lost when a homeowner’s heating/cooling bill arrives.

Investing in these kinds of features will save money in the long haul and make your family much more comfortable throughout the year.

Return on Investment

Low-cost windows are only one bottom line factor. When you purchase new windows, you are making an investment in your home. Consider that when you purchase your windows, you’ll also need a qualified team to install them and a strong warranty to ensure that your investment doesn’t go to waste.

Often, cheap windows aren’t backed by a double limited lifetime warranty like Window Expo’s. That means over time if you experience any issues like pitting, cracking, peeling, or chipping, your windows may not be covered. Also, many companies that offer cheap windows simply do not install them properly, nor do they guarantee their installation work.

Because we want you to be our customer for life, our highly-trained professionals are the most experienced in the industry. Their work is also covered by an installation warranty, which is rare and hard to find in our industry.

Replacement Window Life Span

If you’re attracted to a window because of its low price, consider the life span. Many inexpensive windows will only last 5-7 years and are warrantied for that short amount of time. How long do you plan to stay in your home?

These types of windows are often made with lower-grade vinyl that may contain filler ingredients that lose color over time or are less resistant to decay. You’ll also be limited on options and features that add curb appeal.

All of this means that you can expect to purchase windows again during the time you own your home. If you’re planning to live long-term in your home, choose a window that will last a lifetime. You’ll not only avoid additional expense but save time by making the best decision the first time.

We’re here to help.

Ready to start replacing windows on your home? Window Expo can help! Here’s what to expect when you work with us to replace your windows

Get a free quote for replacing windows.

When you’re ready, we begin the process with a free quote created by a home visit or virtual consultation. Some ask why we can’t provide a quote over the phone. The answer is simple: every home is different and seeing your home provides our expert team a much better idea of your needs and requirements.

During the consultation, we inspect and measure your existing windows. Then through a brief demo, we show you exactly how our windows work, using a heat lamp that mimics the weather in Texas. Our windows keep your home at the perfect temperature year-round. If noise is a concern, we can also perform a sound test to show how our windows will dampen sound from noisy highways or loud neighbors.

Our design consultant will have everything available at your appointment to make sure you all of our available color options and custom design features.

The best part of this first step is that the cost we provide you is an actual price – not an estimate.

Consider your options.

Because our windows come with a variety of features, we’ll also discuss the options that are perfect for your home, like a gorgeous portrait window to showcase your garden or a sliding window that easily opens horizontally.

Our design team can help you choose custom colors to boost curb appeal. You can choose a color for the interior and exterior, allowing you to mix and match options for the frame that complement your home’s design, inside and out.

Choosing a window style and options can be overwhelming, so we’re here to help you weigh every option. No matter if your home is classically inspired or ultra-modern, Window Expo offers the perfect window.

Kick back while we install.

We want you to be totally satisfied by your new windows, so our installation team is comprised of only certified professionals. We even provide regular training to our team so that everyone stays up-to-date on the best installation techniques. With over 100,000 windows installed throughout Texas, we are among the most experienced teams in our area.

Installation typically takes one to three days, depending upon how many windows will be replaced. We’ll schedule the installation at a convenient time for you and your family. First, we remove your windows in limited sections and install each new window with a flawless fit on your home, protecting it from harmful elements. We work in small batches to help limit the outdoor elements from coming into your home. Then, we’ll haul away the old windows so you can say goodbye to drafty windows forever! We respect your home and will leave the worksite cleaner and tidier than when we began.

Enjoy your windows for a lifetime!

Your new investment is also backed by a double limited lifetime warranty on your windows against warping, cracking, breaking, etc. One of the benefits of working with our professionals is that you are covered by an installation warranty. Window manufacturer warranties don’t cover issues that arise from improper installation. This is why we provide a limited lifetime labor warranty on our installation services.

In the last step of the installation process, we’ll show you how to maintain your windows and use all of their features. We truly want you to love them because our mission is to improve the lives that we touch by creating customers for life.

Need proof of our commitment? Read this review from our recent customer, Melissa:

“After 13 years in our home, we noticed gaps and condensation between our windows. We knew it was time to replace our existing, cheap aluminum windows. The execution of the installation was perfect. The Window Expo team was professional and extremely prudent of not leaving any debris behind. How nice to have all of the old aluminum windows hauled away. The installation was complete in two short days. The caulking around the windows is neat and clean. Not to mention, the windows are made in the USA, a superior product. Again, PERFECTLY EXECUTED process.”

How Window Expo engineered windows for smart Texas homeowners

How we specially engineered windows for Texas homeowners.

How Window Expo Engineered Windows for Texas Homeowners

It’s a little-known fact that different kinds of windows are manufactured especially for different environmental conditions. If you’re lucky enough to call Texas home, shouldn’t your windows be built with the unique climate of Texas in mind?

Many windows for Texas homeowners installed by our competitors are actually manufactured for other regions of the United States. Our windows are specifically engineered to meet the unique challenges presented by the Texas climate because, as a locally owned business, we know the Lone Star State. The sweltering summers and mild winters in Dallas, Austin, San Antonio and other Texas cities cause certain window qualities to be more important than others.

What makes our custom-made Anlin Del Mar Windows the smart windows for Texas homes? There are four key factors we took into consideration when creating them:

Low-Maintenance Vinyl Frames

Vinyl frames are an excellent barrier between the exterior and interior of your home that’s meant to keep heat exactly where it belongs. We’ve purposefully chosen foam that’s inserted in dead air chambers within the frame for maximum energy efficiency. With ultra-strong, fiberglass-reinforced inserts, your home will have superior thermal insulation. And, vinyl frames are easy to clean, strong and will not warp or rot over time. They’re a smart investment for homes in Texas.

Low-E Glass

Homeowners tell us that they love how bright and cheery their homes are after our window replacement process. That’s because our windows feature low-emissive glass, which brings more light into your home without sacrificing energy-efficient qualities. It’s a microscopic coating that is transparent and provides maximum protection against sun exposure. This makes it ideal for the Texas climate. During the winter, warm sunlight can enter your home. During the summer, you get the cooling benefits of perfect solar control.

ENERGY STAR® Certified Windows for Texas

Smart homeowners know to shop for ENERGY STAR® certified products because they deliver on value and are rigorously tested to be energy-efficient. Our windows exceed these requirements, helping you save year-round. Nationwide, windows with this certification lower energy bills by 12%. Window Expo customers with whole-home window replacements see maximum savings both in terms of their bills and energy efficiency. That’s not just pocket change but real money you can put to work. And, as a bonus: our windows are manufactured in the USA for extremely reasonable prices without
sacrificing quality.

Custom For Any Style Home

There are so many influences on Texas architecture. Homes in the region vary from farmhouse and Tudor to craftsman, mid-century modern, and ranch. How can one window be a fit for any type of home? We make it easy because our replacement windows are customizable in every aspect: style, color, configuration and more. Whether you are looking for a huge portrait window as a focal point in your favorite room or specific color options to match both the interior and exterior of your home, our windows are a workhorse.

Thinking of a change?

We’re eager to help! As a locally owned company in Texas, we know that when Texans work together, it not only makes our homes better but also our community.

We deeply care about our customers and they’re our family. That’s why we created our custom replacement windows with their specific needs in mind. Let’s make a change together – reach out for a free, no-commitment quote today from one of our experts in your neighborhood.

Hope = Confident Expectations ❤


Have you ever looked to the future with great confident expectations? 


One month ago, many of us could only look toward the future with much uncertainty. Seems like even at one month later, many are still only looking 1-2 days ahead…as the future is still a bit unclear. 


Here at Window Expo and Bath Expo, our team had a choice: 

1) Do we choose to look toward our future with uncertainty and fear?  

2) Or do we choose to embrace hope, and confidently expect good to come from it all? 


We didn’t have to look too far to find our answer. Our incredible team members. 


When Texas began to prohibit large gatherings, we completely understood & supported why. However, we knew this would affect a big portion of our team…our Shows & Events Team. Home & Garden shows were cancelling, malls were closing their doors and outdoor events were on a permanent hold. Over 30 amazing team members suddenly had no place to represent our brand…and we didn’t know if or when events would open back up. 


The future was unclear. However, even in the midst of uncertainty, one of the events team members said to me: 


We’re going to be ok. We just need to focus on getting through each day with joy, love and hope. And even though I cannot promote our brand in the field, I will be promoting our brand to my social media, friends and family. Because this company is unlike any other. I love this company. 


I love that: “Focus on getting through each day with joy, love and hope.” 


And that is exactly what we have chosen to do! 


We are choosing joy, love and hope every single day.   

We are choosing to have confident expectations for the future.   

We are choosing to spread hope in our community.  

We are choosing to care and serve our customers with excellence. 


Hope = Confident Expectations. 

Join us. And let us know how we can serve you!

How To Support Local Businesses in Texas

Texas.  It’s a state unlike any other. And like our fellow Texans, we’re proud to be our own little country that’s neither West, East, North or South.  We’re just TEXAS y’all.


When the Coronavirus (COVID-19) began to impact our state, I once again experienced the strength, hope and love our Texas community has in times of uncertainty.  I think back to 9/11 and Hurricane Katrina, and all the uncertainty that followed those moments in time.  It was such a sad and uncertain time, yet we saw a community coming together like never before.  Everyone supporting each other, caring, giving and serving. 


Even in the midst of darkness, Texans were shining bright…just like those Texas stars at night.


Right now, many Texas small businesses are being hit hard, and are struggling to stay open and serve their community well.  Our prayers and word of hope surround you daily.  Like us, please continue to support these businesses.  They all need us.


Here at Window Expo & Bath Expo, we are a small Texas business ourselves.  And, complying with government mandates to keep us all safe is our top priority.  We are thankful current mandate allows residential construction to continue!

  • Current & Prior Customers – Please share with your family & friends!

A Message Of HOPE


What an amazing response to our prior blog post, “A Sign of Hope!”  Keep sending us your rainbow pictures or post to Social Media. We love each message of hope!


Window Expo & Bath Expo is a company of faith, and for over 12 years we have had a mission to serve our fellow Texans well, by improving the lives we touch. We may provide quality window replacement solutions for your home, but YOU, the person, the family, always come first.  And it has been and is our pleasure to serve you.


Because of that foundation of faith, I wanted to simply give you a message of hope found within the story of Noah. 


Noah’s Ark may seem like a children’s story of old, but it is a story ever so relevant today.  As we find ourselves more at home, our homes may start to feel a little like the ark Noah and his family were in for 40 days!  Although I am personally glad I only have one spoiled cat to care for, instead of hundreds! Ha!  Oh my, could you imagine?!


In Genesis Chapter 8 verse 1, it says, “And God Remembered Noah.” 


Yes, Noah was not forgotten. He was placed in that ark, the refuge God provided, to keep him and his family safe.  God didn’t just shut the door and say good luck! He had Noah, and his family, secure in His hands the entire time.


You may be feeling stuck in the Ark like Noah, but remember, God is there.  He loves you and is keeping you safe.  He will not leave you and will provide a way for us all, once it is safe.


Even when a little window in the ark is the only view we may have, God sees the bigger picture.  (Genesis 8: 6-22)  A rainbow promise is waiting for us on the other side!  Stay Strong Fellow Texans! Soon, we will be on dry land. This is our message of hope to you.


If we can serve you further, please call or visit us anytime.

P.S. – Here are some more rainbows we have received! Keep drawing rainbows as a sign of hope, and send us a photo!

WEBE Hopeful! Messages of HOPE from Window Expo and Bath Expo TX


A Sign Of Hope!

Although this may not be a typical post from our company, we found the more we shared this amazing story with others, the more it brought hope! And we could all use some hope right now. Pause and enjoy. #WEBEhopeful


Coronavirus.  COVID-19.  Terms that were not in our everyday language just a few short weeks ago.  Now our world, country and even the great state of Texas know them well.  They are terms that have stopped us in our tracks, having all of us wondering when we will take steps forward again?

Here at Window Expo and Bath Expo, we too have felt the impact and uncertainty of what is to come.  But last Wednesday night, a sign of hope was delivered to our company, and it all started with a text message from a previous customer, and a painted window.

I was sitting on my couch that Wednesday night when a text message came through with this photo:

Girl painting rainbow on window with message "God has us! God has your company too! I love this window!"


In the midst of a difficult and uncertain week for us all, our wonderful customer sent us this sign of hope.  I cannot tell you how this encouraged our company and team.  After letting her know this, she simply texted back:


Go paint a rainbow.


So we did!  Our team returned to our offices and homes the next day, took our Expo Markers, and started drawing rainbows as a sign of hope:

At the close of the business day, storms started building here in Dallas.  I sat in my office watching the winds plow through the trees, the sky growing dark and the rain coming down in sheets.  I looked to my rainbow on my office window, and pushed through wrapping up my day.


At 7:20pm, I left my office and as I turned from the parking lot onto the street, sunlight hit my face, and as I turned, I saw this:



Now that’s a sign of HOPE. I just sat in awe of God’s goodness and gifts of hope to us in times of uncertainty.  It is our hope at Window Expo & Bath Expo that you cling to hope right now.  As a company, we’ll be focusing on bringing messages of hope and being hope in our community for the next 40 days.  It is our prayer this brings you encouragement and hope.

We encourage YOU to draw a rainbow at home!  Draw, take a pic, tag us:

@windowexpoandbathexpo with the hashtag #WEBEhopeful.
