Are Online or Over-The-Phone Quotes Accurate?

Many "set prices" don't account for unforeseen costs and hidden fees which can drastically increase the original quote. At Expo Home Improvement, we offer in-home consultations where an expert will come to your home to evaluate everything involved in your project and will provide you with an exact quote that won't come with any pricing surprises.

Are Your Window Replacement Options Energy Star® Certified?
Our windows not only meet the ENERGY STAR® certification, but they exceed them. This makes our energy-efficient windows perfect for our Texas climate. When you have an ENERGY STAR® whole home window replacement, it helps to lower your home energy bills on average by 12%, which means ongoing savings for you. From a picture window to a single hung window, we have the right energy-efficient window for your home.
Is It Possible to Install an Exterior Door or New Window Where One Doesn't Exist Already?
Here at Expo Home Improvement, we specialize in being able to replace your existing entry door or storm door, as well as window replacement in your existing spaces.
While creating a new opening for a window or door is not a specialty of ours, if you're looking to add a new window or door to your home, we can provide you with the specifications, so that your preferred general contractor can work with you to construct the new opening. Once the space has been framed out, our experts can install your new exterior door or custom window. Once completed, we back your new window or door with our double limited lifetime warranty - giving you peace of mind for years to come.
Is a Window Replacement Project Expensive? Why Shouldn’t I Choose the Cheapest One?
New window replacements are an investment, and when it comes to your home, you want to be sure that you have a window contractor that values quality. The saying, "you get what you pay for" is one that we know all too well, and it rings true when it comes to your window replacement project.
Cheaper options offer lower quality materials that lack valuable features such as custom window colors, cardinal glass, and energy efficient gas fills. Plus, their warranty typically only lasts for a few years. Here at Expo Home Improvement, we not only provide you with a double limited lifetime warranty, but we also offer windows that can stand the test of our Texas climate and add curb appeal to your home at the same time.
A window replacement project with Expo Home Improvement guarantees that you will geteverything you need from your home window and more.
What Security Features Do Vinyl Window Options Offer?
We understand that when it comes to your home, security is always top of mind. With our Anlin Del Mar Texas Edition energy-efficient window, we offer an AAMA Gold Forced Entry Certification. This means that the home window that we offer has passed the most rigorous tests in the industry and adheres to the highest security standard among all window companies.
Each one of our windows features continuous interlocking rails to prevent intruders from prying them open. Plus, our locks have a visual indicator for you to easily confirm that your windows are locked, so you know your home is secure with just a glance. Whether at home or away, your home will be protected.
Can I Put in a New Window or Entry Door Anywhere in My Home?
While it is likely possible to put a new window or entry door in various places in your home, you should always consult with a general contractor or architect before getting started. Certain structural issues may restrict you from being able to include this addition in the desired location.
While creating the opening for your new window or entry door is not a service that we offer, we are happy to help install your custom window or exterior door after the preliminary work has been performed by a contractor or architect. And we will back your installation with a double-limited lifetime warranty.
What Should I Look for When Buying Replacement Windows?
We suggest starting with who will be performing the work. Even the best home windows will not deliver on expectations if they are installed poorly. Choosing a window company like Expo Home Improvement that is well established, insured, has a Double Limited Lifetime Warranty, and has outstanding BBB and Google reviews really is the best place to start when it comes to installing new windows.
So, finding the right relationship is important?
It is critical to partner with a window service expert that you like and trust, and a warranty that you can depend on. So do your research and find a reputable window contractor that stands behind their work and you. Your home is a great investment and where many family memories are made, so always choose wisely to protect your window replacement investment and add value to your home for many years to come.
How Can I Tell If It's Time To Replace My Windows?
Even though your home cannot talk, it can definitely give you signs that it is time to replace your windows. If you find yourself complaining about cold drafts or windows that stick or refuse to open or close, it is time to replace them. High energy bills or having difficulty maintaining your home's temperature are good indicators that it is time for new windows.
Is the age of my home also an indicator?
Absolutely! If your home is over 15 years old, it is time to replace your windows. And don't rule out newer homes. In most cases, builders use low-grade materials to lower their cost which means lower efficiency. So, if you're experiencing any of the issues mentioned, it is time to call the experts, and at Expo Home Improvement we have the right energy efficient window replacement solution for you.
What Types of Windows Are the Most Energy Efficient?
We always say match your window to your climate, and for our Texas climate, especially with our high heat, vinyl windows really are the best energy-efficient windows. But not all vinyl is created equally, and choosing the right vinyl with the right vinyl formula for Texas is essential.
Are Vinyl Windows Cheaper?
Vinyl window frames offer incredible results, which wins them the title of best value guarantee. Vinyl materials are used to create one of the most energy-efficient windows available. They also last longer than other materials like wood or aluminum and require very little maintenance.
Isn’t All Vinyl the Same?
Not all vinyl is created equally. There are many different types of vinyl formulas used in custom windows, and not all are going to work well in our unique Texas climate. Here at Expo Home Improvement, we know Texas. So, we know the exact vinyl formula to take on our extreme weather and shifting soil. To find out more about our window replacement options, schedule a free consultation and our expert design consultant will share more benefits to choosing vinyl windows for your home.
Does Replacing My Windows Add Value to My Home?
Windows are one of the most prominent features of your home, and chances are if your windows look worn your home will look worn too. When you replace your windows, the benefits start immediately. They enhance your home's interior, comfort, and add transformational curb appeal. What's more is those new insulated windows and energy cost savings can be a big selling point.
Should I Replace All of My Windows at One Time?
Windows are the single largest source of energy loss in a home. So, when you replace all of your windows at the same time, you and your home receive the full benefits immediately.
You can experience many benefits and enhance your home's interior and curb appeal by ensuring each new window has a consistent look and feel. What's more is that all of those new, energy efficient windows are now working together to lower your energy bills and reduce noise inside your home. Whole-home window replacement is the ideal option for the best savings and benefits.
Partial home window replacement is also good depending on your needs and financial flexibility. Replacing those front bay windows first and then maybe replacing the back double hung windows second or vice versa. We have lots of options to provide you with the perfect custom windows for your home.
Can My Windows Be Customized? What Features Do You Offer?
With limitless design, color, and configuration options, our windows add curb appeal and value to your home. You can customize the color for both the window's interior and exterior. We offer a wide range of windows with various features like awning windows, bay windows, picture windows and more. Each is expertly fitted for your home, ensuring a weather-tight fit no matter the size or placement.
Is Your Insulated Window Manufactured in the USA?
We are proud to say that our windows are not only manufactured right here in the USA, but they are also designed specifically for our Texas climate. As Texans, we need an insulated window that will stand up against our hot summer days and our cold winter snaps.

Your new windows can make your home quieter, more attractive, bring in more light and increase energy efficiency, which will save you money. You will never regret replacing your windows now.
Can I Install My Own Windows?
As my grandpa used to say, "I'm sure you can, but should you?" So even with my can-do attitude, don't skimp on using a professional. They have years of experience in measuring, installing, and having the right tools on hand. Choosing a certified professional window contractor that has mastered their skillset is worth its weight in gold.
Do Energy-Efficient Windows Really Save Me Money?
You bet! Windows are actually the single largest source of energy loss in a home.

This means that with our warranty, your home windows are covered for as long as you live in your home and this warranty is transferable to the next homeowner as well. Our products and window services come with a true worry-free guarantee.
Are Online or Over-the-Phone Window Quotes Accurate?
Getting an online or over the phone quote for your window replacement project may seem modern and convenient, but it is not always hassle free. Window companies that promise to set a price over the phone or online usually have a disclaimer that can mean hidden costs and fees that are only realized after they visit your home. That amazing low-cost deal can just double or triple in price, and that is because your home is unique.
With many different window sizes and style preferences, one size does not fit all. You are guaranteed to have some unwelcome pricing surprises once they are actually in your home and better understand your vision.
There is so much value when you start with having a design expert actually come into your home. It ensures that they will provide a thorough inspection of your windows, take exact measurements, and recommend the best features and style options that match your home, needs, style preferences, and budget. They will provide you with an exact down-to-the-penny quote for your new window project. There are no pricing surprises when you start with an in-home consultation with a design expert from Expo Home Improvement.
How Messy is a Window Replacement?
Window replacement can be messy and a difficult project indeed, but with properly trained technicians, the mess can be contained. During the window installation process, our certified window installers are trained to deliver a 5-Star Experience, which means we commit to leaving your home better than we found it. No mess, just sparkling new windows!
First, they will lay tarps inside and outside your home to make sure any debris will be collected and easily disposed of as they work through installing each replacement window. Lastly, they have a proven method to remove and replace your windows, so you have minimal outdoor elements entering your home.
You can enjoy your new window upgrade immediately after our crew leaves your home because our professional window replacement team at Expo Home Improvement is trained to take care of your home as if it were our own, leaving no mess behind.
How Often Should You Replace Your Home Windows?
New window replacements are an investment, and when it comes to your home, you want to be sure that you have a window contractor with integrity that values quality and stands behind their products and installation. The saying, "you get what you pay for" rings true when it comes to your window replacement project.
If your home has the original windows, unless you worked with the builder on custom window options, then your windows are considered to be builder's grade. Builder's grade windows typically have a lifespan of about 10 years. That lifespan can be cut short depending on the window's quality and the weather conditions that they are exposed to.
Our home window is designed to withstand our Texas weather and is made with quality materials that help to extend the lifespan of your custom window. If you are feeling draftiness when near your window, or if you are noticing some fogginess or condensation between your windowpanes, this is a sign that your windows need to be replaced.
A window replacement project with Expo Home Improvement guarantees that you will get everything you need from your home window and more.
What is a Picture Window?
There are various window types to consider for your home. One of the most common is the picture window. A picture window is a fixed window that lets you have an unobstructed view of the outside of your home and is great for allowing lots of natural light into your home.
Areas in your home with high ceilings make having a picture window the perfect option for those spaces. And, if you are looking to turn a single hung window, sliding window, or another type of window into a picture window, we are here to help. Let us assist you with bringing your vision to life.
What is a Single Hung Window?
There are various window types to consider for your home. One of the most common is the single hung window.
A single hung window has what is referred to as sashes, also known as panels. The lower sash allows the bottom part of the window to slide up and down, while the top sash remains stationary. Our single hung window is an energy-efficient window, which means the window is working for your home with fewer moving components, instead of against your AC units with escaping air. We have an amazing custom window replacement just for your home, and we are confident that you will be happy with benefits both inside and outside of your home.
What Should You Do About a Broken Home Window?
Whether from a rock or from a storm, a broken window is an unfortunate circumstance that many deal with when it comes to their windows.
Often, many believe that repairing a broken window is as simple as replacing glass. And, while that may solve the aesthetic issue, it allows a bigger problem to loom. Without a full window replacement, your window is left without insulation. Windows are created with gas filled insulation, and once your home window is broken, the insulation begins to seep out. A full window replacement is required to ensure that your home remains energy efficient.
We are the window contractor that is ready to help to restore your curb appeal and energy efficiency back to your home.
How Does an Energy-Efficient Window Work?
Energy-efficient window options are
often advertised, but rarely explained. Having an energy efficient window means that you have two or more panes of
glass with gas insulation between, filling the space between the panes.
These windows are designed and built to prevent the air inside of your home from getting out, and from allowing the outside air from getting in. Our energy-efficient window helps to lower the cost of your electric bills, while helping to maintain consistent temperatures in your home throughout the year, which also ensures that your A/C unit doesn't work harder than it needs to. We want to help you save money, and we are confident that we have an energy-efficient custom window that is just right for your home.
Should You Consider a Custom Window Replacement for Your Home?
Depending on the age of your home, your windows may be original. And if you are considering updating your windows, you may be wondering if you should go with a custom window or something that is more one-size-fits-all.
A custom window is just that. It is customized to perfectly fit in your home and give your home the maximum level of energy efficiency. In addition to the perfect fit, we also offer various colors to complement your home, and optional grid patterns to add that extra personal touch. From a bay window to a casement window, and everything in between, we have the custom window replacement that is the perfect fit for your home.

What Are the Qualifications of Your Plumbers Who Work on My Bathroom Remodel?
Our customers' satisfaction is our top priority during a bathroom remodel. This is why we assure you that your new tub or shower replacement will be overseen by our master plumber and his team of certified plumbers to ensure the highest quality of work.

To qualify as a master plumber, the plumber must attain at least 1,000 hours of schooling,10,000 hours of on-the-job experience, be a journeyman for at least a year, and take a certification exam administered by the Texas State Board of Plumbing Examiners.
While not every bathroom remodel requires a master plumber, we want to give you peace of mind knowing that your shower enclosure or tub install is overseen by our team of extremely qualified professionals who will ensure the job is done right.
How Long Does It Take to Install My New Shower, Custom Bath, or Shower Stall?
A shower stall, tub-shower combo, or tub install can usually be completed in as little as one day. Depending on the scope of the bathroom remodel, installation can take up to three days to complete. Some bathroom remodel projects can be more complex than others.
Before your installation, we review the timeline with you so that you have an accurate estimate for your bath or shower install before we begin the work. We want to reassure you that no matter if you need a small bathroom remodel or a large one, we will get your new bath or shower project completed right the first time and in a timely fashion.

Yes! A shower can absolutely be converted into a tub. Depending on the size of your existing shower stall and bathroom, one of our design consultants can help you plan a shower-to-tub conversion that fits your space and your style perfectly! At Expo Home Improvement, we specialize in converting showers to tubs, and tubs to showers to make your dream bathroom a reality.

How Quickly Can You Install My New Bathtub or Shower?
Many installations and conversions only take a single day, depending upon the scope of your project. We'll clearly communicate the timeline to you before we kick off your bathroom project.
How Can I Make a Bathroom Safer for Seniors or The Elderly?

Also, we can install accessories like safety bars, grips, non-slip flooring, and seating. Read more about bathroom safety on our blog.
What's The Difference Between a Bathtub Liner and Bath Remodel Products?
The difference between a bathtub liner and a full bath remodel is truly night and day. Bathtub liners are installed on top of your existing tub using tape and strong adhesives to cover up issues that may be much bigger in your bathroom. Not only do liners not address the root of your issue, but they often crack or leak, which brings about issues with mold and mildew down the line.
We guarantee that we will take everything down to the studs and give you a new tub or shower stall made from solid surface, premium acrylic. All of the materials that we use are naturally antimicrobial and they are installed by our team of professionally trained installers and certified plumbers.
Do You Install Bath Liners?
With the possibility of mold or mildew in your current space, and the chance of it developing over time by covering your original bathtub or shower with a bathtub liner, we do not offer them. We take your shower or bath surrounds all the way down to the studs to ensure that there is no mold or mildew growing underneath the surface. Then, we install a new bath or shower replacement in your space, giving you a fresh start with your bathroom remodel.

Are Online or Over-the-Phone Bath / Shower Quotes Accurate?
Getting an online or over-the-phone quote for your bath remodel or shower replacement may seem modern and convenient, but it is not always hassle free.
Bathroom remodeling companies that promise to set price over the phone or online usually have a disclaimer that can mean hidden costs and fees that are only realized after they visit your home. That amazing low-cost deal just doubled or tripled in price, and that is because your bath or shower area is unique. One size does not fit all. Every bath and shower area has different sizing, angles, features, and design preferences. You are guaranteed to have some unwelcome pricing surprises once they actually see your project space and better understand your vision.

Statistics show that the majority of falls in a home occur in the bathroom, so safety is always top of mind when it comes to how we care for our customers. We offer a variety of options to ensure that you have a safe shower experience. Options like a roll-in shower, or a custom shower fitted with safety bars, slip resistant flooring, and a seat offer easy accessibility, and are great for those with limited mobility. No matter the need, we are here to help.
How Long Does It Take to Fill a Walk-In Tub?
Walk-in tubs are one of the most asked about items in bathroom remodeling, and the question of how long it takes to fill a walk-in tub is one that we get all the time. The thought alone of waiting for the tub to fill can be discouraging, but the reality is a lot less bothersome.
The average length of time it takes for a walk-in bath to fill up with water is typically within 10 minutes, depending on the size of your tub. And, depending on the water pressure used to fill your walk-in tub, it may cause the length of time to be longer or shorter, but with a fast-draining tub, you can be out of your tub within 2 to 4 minutes of bathing.
If you are interested in a walk-in bath, don't let your questions cause you to hesitate. We are here and ready to help bring your safe bathing experience to life.
What are Some Reasons to Consider a Tub-Shower Combo?
A tub-shower combo is a popular option for many homeowners for various reasons. Having a combined bath and shower is a great option because it helps to save space by keeping the tub and the shower together, and it brings versatility with the option to use your tub-shower combo as solely a shower or a tub.
They are also ideal for small children to use for bathing whether they live in the home or are visiting. And, if you elect to have a shower curtain, it offers more privacy. Plus, you can add even more personality to your bathroom through the shower curtain that you choose for your bath shower. While they are not ideal for every person, if you are looking for a custom new tub-shower combo, we are confident that we have the perfect options for your home.
What is the Best Exterior Door Material?
Exterior doors can be made of many materials - wood, fiberglass, or steel - to mention a few. Here at Expo Home Improvement, we sell fiberglass and steel doors because these materials work best in Texas with our unpredictable climate! For Texas, you should consider a material that doesn't rot, corrode, or warp over time with our extreme heat. Fiberglass doors and steel doors are both materials that are energy efficient as they are resistant to shrinkage or swelling.
If you are looking to replace exterior doors in your home, Expo Home Improvement has been specializing in window replacement and door replacement since 2006. We have many materials to choose from to fit your door needs.
Can I Install My Own Windows?
Although you can install your own windows, the risk is not worth the reward because doing that will void the window manufacturer's warranty. Having the trained experts at Expo Home install your windows will ensure that they're installed correctly and will keep your warranty intact.
How Does My Window Installation Choice Affect My Warranty?
Installation is not covered under a manufacturer warranty, so if you choose to install your own window and it's not installed properly, your manufacturer warranty is actually void. Partnering with a window company like Expo Home Improvement that has a Double Limited Lifetime Warranty provided with your purchase will provide the best protection for your window replacement investment.
