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. Make a same-day appointment or schedule a convenient time to meet with one of our experts.

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

The Truth About Energy-Efficient Windows

You’ve probably heard about energy efficient windows. They’re all the rage, but you may be wondering why. Isn’t a window just a window?

Energy-efficient windows in Dallas have a lot to offer homeowners. Here are a few truths about energy efficient windows that you may not have realized.

Lower Energy Bills

One of the most convincing reasons to replace your windows with an energy efficient option is to save money on your energy bills.

Unlike traditional windows, energy efficient windows are able to eliminate the passage of air between the indoors and outdoors. That means you won’t end up heating the outdoors in the winter or cooling the outdoors in the summer.

Energy efficient windows do this with:

  • Glass coatings: Low-E glass can block the rays of the sun, thermally insulating your home.
  • Multiple panes: With two or three panes of glass, you create a cushion of air that further insulates your interior spaces.
  • Foam insulation: Foam is used to insulate the space around the windows, preventing the escape of air around the frame.

Protection From UV Rays

Dallas replacement windows with energy efficient features can help you save money on your utility bills, but they can help you save money in other ways too.UV rays are very harmful to the skin, but they can be harmful to other things as well. When exposed to harsh sunlight, furniture, carpets, and artwork can all fade. That means you may end up having to replace that rug sooner than you’d like.

Energy efficient windows can block up to 97 percent of UV rays. That will keep your family’s skin healthy, but it will also preserve the interior accessories in your home.

More Comfortable Interior Spaces

Saving money is a compelling reason to install energy efficient windows, but it shouldn’t be the only reason why you make the switch. Ultimately, you should make the switch because they will make your home more comfortable.

You’ll enjoy a warmer space in the winter and a cooler space in the summer without spending an unreasonable amount of time adjusting your thermostat. Sitting by the windows will be more comfortable too, since you will no longer have to deal with drafts.

Of course, energy efficient windows are only as good as their installation. That’s why it’s important to seek help from a professional Texas window installation company.

At Window Expo, we focus on providing quick and efficient installations. To learn more about how we can transform your home with energy efficient windows, give us a call for a free estimate today!

How Long Do Replacement Windows Last?

Are you wondering if it’s time to replace your windows? Well, the average lifetime of a window replacement in Dallas depends on a couple of factors. For instance, the type of material the window is made from, as well as, the quality of the manufacturer can affect longevity. This is why you need to pick a reliable company for the job. 

At Window Expo, we make sure to use only the best quality of materials and products to ensure that your windows will last as long as possible. We even back this up with our lifetime guarantee. Once you order a replacement through us, it’s covered for life against damage and defects. However, there are many window materials on the market that you may want to consider for your home.

Vinyl Replacement Windows

We offer durable, vinyl windows that are resistant against mold and mildew, dents, cracks, and warping and are low maintenance. So, they generally last between 20 to 40 years.

Wood Replacement Windows

A more traditional wood window is resistant to extreme temperature changes, but may need regular painting to prevent warping, rot, or insect infestation. A well-maintained wooden window can last you between 10 to 20 years. 

Aluminum Replacement Windows

An aluminum window is very strong, resisting mold, mildew, dents and chipping, but may corrode over time depending on the quality of its manufacturer. Plus, these materials aren’t great thermal barriers. An aluminum window can last between 30 to 40 years

When to Replace Windows?

When the window pane breaks or cracks is the most obvious sign that you need to call a Dallas replacement windows company. However, there are other signs around the frame that indicate the window is breaking down over time. These include:

  • Warping
  • Splitting or Cracking
  • Mold & Mildew Growth
  • Drafts Around the Frame
  • Difficulty Opening or Closing It
  • Cracking and Decaying Seals

Some of these issues are minor repairs that don’t necessarily mean you need to replace the whole window, but it’s always good to speak with a professional about the problem before deciding. Another issue that has many homeowners ordering replacement windows are high utility bills. If your windows are old or made from metal, they probably aren’t energy efficient. You may need to invest in Low-E glass and advanced framing materials to keep your family comfortable.

Window Expo has been offering window replacement in Dallas for over 10 years and we have worked with thousands of customers in that time. Allow us to take a look at your windows to better determine if you need replacements installed. Find out more and get a free in-home consultation by filling out our online form!
