Are you shopping around for new windows in Texas? Whether you’re building a home or room from scratch or replacing older windows for an upgrade, buying and installing new windows can be a major time investment. 

Some homeowners may prefer a window that lets in a lot of natural light, while others want something affordable that offers a lot of privacy. So how can you find out which windows address all your needs?

Seconds & Surplus is here to make the window buying process simple. We’ll walk you through the basics of buying new windows, helping you make energy-efficient choices as you decide which type of window best fits your situation.

The Cost of New Windows

How much does it cost to replace your windows? The average base cost of buying a new window is anywhere from $200 to $1200 — it varies based on what kind of window you’re buying and where you’re buying it. You can expect that number to level out around $700 for most types of windows, but the price can change if you factor in customization or specific styles.

While no homeowner wants to throw all their money at new windows, spending a bit more up front could save you a lot later. Some of the top window brands will look great in your home, last much longer, and usually save you more on energy costs. Regardless, you can find affordable new windows at Seconds & Surplus that fit your criteria.

A Window’s Life Expectancy

Most residential windows will last 15 to 30 years. That’s an enormous range, and it can be tough to gauge where your windows fall on that spectrum. It’s wise to start considering replacing your windows around the two-decade mark — this is typically the point where their functionality and durability wane significantly.

Replacing old windows will improve your home’s energy efficiency and comfort. Older, damaged windows also might be easier to break into, so swapping them out for new ones could make your home safer. New windows are also an excellent investment if you ever intend to sell; you can often recoup some of your investment since new windows boost your home’s value.

You’ll likely get a longer lifespan from quality-made windows. But the main contingency for a window’s lifespan is usually maintenance. A well-maintained and installed window will fall on that latter half of the 15- to 30-year life expectancy. 

No matter how old your windows are, if you’re noticing higher energy bills, drafts, or warping window frames, it’s probably a good time to start shopping for a replacement at Seconds & Surplus.

Replacement Windows and Energy Efficiency

Energy-efficient windows can save homeowners a lot of money on their energy bills. They are one of the best home improvements you can make for both cost and comfort. 

The EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) recommends installing Energy Star–certified windows, especially if your home has poor insulation. The older your windows, the more likely they will be to negatively impact your home’s energy efficiency.

If you’re considering replacing your windows with newer, more energy-efficient ones, you’re in good hands with Seconds & Surplus. We sell single-hung vinyl windows that are all Energy Star certified. Energy Star claims that using their certified windows can save you roughly 10–15% a year, so they’re well worth the cost to install in your home!

Window Installation

Another aspect that can affect the overall cost of new windows in Texas is the installation. You can look at it in two ways: save yourself on installation costs by going the DIY route but risk running into problems, or spare the extra expense and get professional assistance. 

Things can get even trickier when you factor in removing your existing windows, so which way is better for your window installation?

There’s no wrong answer here — our single-hung windows are designed so homeowners can feel confident installing the windows themselves. But for those who want the reassurance that their replacement windows are installed correctly, Seconds & Surplus is happy to help with project installs. 

You can contact us to let us know what your project is and what your requirements are. We typically respond to inquiries within 7 to 10 business days, and we look forward to serving you however we can.
