Frequently Asked Replacement Window Questions

How much do replacement windows cost?

Each house has different dimensions, different numbers of windows, and different needs. So, it’s difficult to set a price without first seeing your home. However, we can tell you that no matter your needs or wishes, GreenTex Windows always offers the best value for your hard-earned dollars.

Do you give free estimates?

Absolutely! But more than that, we offer free advice. We thoroughly inspect your windows for signs of trouble and discuss your options. Our goal is to ensure you are given the knowledge you need to make an informed decision, no matter which way you go.

What types of windows do you carry?

We carry vinyl, wood, and metal-framed windows and offer double-hung, single-hung, slider, multi-slider, casement, bay, bow, and custom windows – just to name a few. If you have a window need, we’ll find a way to make it happen.

What do the numbers on window labels mean?

Window labels cover five basic efficiency measurements:

  • U-Factor – How easily heat moves through the window.
  • Air Leakage – How easily air moves through the assembly.
  • Solar Heat Gain Coefficient – How well it blocks the sun’s heat.
  • Visible Transmittance – How much light passes through the glass.
  • Condensation Resistance – How easily condensation forms between panes.

This table displays the number ranges and what is preferable for each window factor.

U-Factor

0.2 – 1.2

0.1 – 0.3

Visible Transmittance

Higher = More Light

Condensation Resistance

0 – 100

Higher Is Better

* Optional rating not found on all window labels

For your solar heat gain coefficient and visible transmittance, it depends on your goals whether you want the rating to be high or low.

Do you do custom window shapes?

Yes, we can order windows in any shape you want – it’ll just take a little longer to order and receive the window from the factory. But once we get them in, the look can be breathtaking.

What is the turnaround time from signature to finished installation?

The standard timeframe for basic replacement windows is from four to six weeks during normal seasons. Depending on the details, custom shapes, sizes, or colors can extend that timeframe by weeks or months.

Who will be doing the installation?

We do not use subcontractors, so every person who enters your home is a fully vetted and bonded employee of GreenTex Windows.

Do you take special precautions to protect my home?

We put down runners in all work areas and gently move anything that is at risk of being harmed. In tight hallways and corners, we put up padding to protect your walls. And on the outside, we take measures to keep your foliage as safe as possible throughout the process.

We’re so serious about protecting your property that we offer each homeowner a Property Protection Guarantee – if we break something, we will fix it or make it right.

Do you offer financing?

Of course! We have plans to fit almost any budget, ranging from short-term same-as-cash arrangements to low-interest loans of up to 20 years. Whatever your needs, we have a financing program that’ll fit like a glove.

What areas do you service?

We service the city of Austin, Texas, and the surrounding areas, including:

  • Round Rock
  • Cedar Park
  • Lakeway
  • The Hills
  • And more…
