Replacement Windows

Photos, reviews, and commentary on replacement windows available in North Texas from The Window Connection.

This is a bow window in a narrow profile replacement window.

There are some specific differences between replacement windows and standard builders grade windows.  Builders grade units are built to be cheap and don't really need to be warranteed longer than one year to meet the builders requirements.  Replacement Windows are a more long term type product and will often have a lifetime warranty.

Replacement Windows in Dallas take many forms and styles.  Vinyl Replacement Windows from NT Window are pictured here.

Replacement Windows tend to run thicker frames than do builders grade windows but that can vary from manufacturer to manufacturer.

Many replacement window providers will use a private label to market a product without the consumer actually knowing the real manufacturer.  Clarity has the Preservation Series for instance and that is actually an Alside Ultra Max with a triple glazed krypton gas filled insulated unit.  Many times a highly advertised installation provider will use this as a tactic to prevent comparison shopping.

Sears is among the biggest user of this tactic.  It prevents comparison shopping and facilitates a higher selling price for windows as it limits information available about the window.

Also be aware that many windows will test well at the assembly line stage but may not perform so well after a few years of use.  When they test a replacement window in a 20 X 30 size, that may not be the performance we can expect when the replacement window becomes a normal three foot by six foot size.  Also, some windows will react better to occasional home movement than others.  It is typical for a replacement window to experience some movement with the home and a better window will react to that movement and still seal well whereas a cheap window may not seal well if it moves.

Another important aspect of replacement window installation is the frame profile.  Many replacement window have a profile that is 3 3/4" or thicker all the way around the window.  On a two foot wide window that makes almost 8 inches of frame and only 16 inches of glass.  This limits the light but raises the performance numbers on the replacement window.

This also causes very large mullions in twin units with the center bar at 7 1/2 inches.  That can be a great deal of plastic to look at in the middle of a replacement window.
