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

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?

How Window Expo engineered windows for smart 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.
