Texas Replacement Windows

Choosing Your Texas Replacement Windows

Texas Replacement Windows

If you’re thinking about replacing your home’s windows, you owe it to yourself to talk to The Window Experts first. Not only do we know and work with top manufacturers of replacement windows, we know Texas and its climate variations – from arid desert on the western side to humid subtropical eastward. The weather from the Gulf of Mexico can’t be ignored either.

As a Texas homeowner, you should focus on durability, energy-efficiency, safety, security, and value. We understand there’s a lot of information to absorb, so rather than presenting an avalanche of everything your ever wanted to know about replacement windows, for a start, let’s narrow the discussion to the pros and cons of double-paned, vinyl framed windows.

What’s so Great About Vinyl Frames?

Vinyl frames have come a long way since their introduction into the market of fifty years ago.

    Benefits of Texas Replacement Windows

  • Maintenance: Just keep them clean. Usually a soft cloth and non-abrasive cleaner will do the trick.
  • Longevity: Vinyl frames won’t rot, peel, or chip, even in the weather extremes found across the great state of Texas.
  • Options Galore: Vinyl frames can be made to be almost any window type. They can be customized in shape and size to fit your requirements, and the array of color options is impressive.
  • Energy efficiency: Vinyl frames are energy efficient because they don’t transfer heat or cold like aluminum frames will.
  • Warranties: Check with The Window Experts, but in general, vinyl windows often offer full lifetime warranties. If they’re transferable (to new homeowner if home is sold), that’s big plus.

All Replacement Window Glass Isn’t Created Equal

Let’s say you’ve decided on vinyl frames, Phew! Now on to the nitty-gritty of your Texas replacement windows – the glass pack. What do your expect from it?

Energy Efficiency

    Not all double pane windows are created equal. Don’t just go by cost.

  • Are they manufactured with Low-E glass?
  • Are the panels gas filled rather than just air?
  • What is the Energy Star rating?

We’ve got the answers.

Sound proofing

While going from single-pane windows to double-pane replacement windows will seem quieter, there are triple-pane windows with additional features designed specifically to reduce sound. If you’re by an airport, highway, or playground, you might want to consider this option.

Protection

Protection from what?

  • Intruders. There’s a glass for that. It’s called keep-safe glass and it’s designed to prevent intrusion, even from crowbar-wielding burglars.
  • Injury from broken glass. Tempered safety glass is designed not to break into sharp shards when it fails, reducing possible injury.
  • Hurriucanes. Yep, there’s a laminated, impact rated, hurricane glass for use in coastal cities.

Are Texas Replacement Windows Worth the Cost?

Vinyl window replacements account for a return on investment of up to 77.5 percent at the time of resale. While the initial cost is a large part of your home improvement budget, the return on your investment comes from:

  • Financially in lower heating and air conditioning bills and increased property value at time of resale
  • In terms of efficiency by reducing your home’s carbon footprint
  • Visually, because, well, your house just looks better
