What does AAMA mean and what it its purpose?
AAMA stands for American Architectural Manufactures Association. AAMA measures not only the thermal durability, but also tests for air and water leakage and structure. For a window to become AAMA GOLD Certified, it must pass 3 tests. Visit the AAMA for more information.
Why are ProVia windows the best replacement windows?
All of ProVia Windows are validated by a 3rd party. These parties are AAMA, NFRC and Energy Star. AAMA measures the durability of the window, air, water leakage and structure. Because ProVIa windows are continually tested, they have been awarded with the GOLD Label of AAMA. The second test conducted is through NFRC, which tests the overall thermal durability of the window. NFRC also measures the rate of heat loss or how well a product prevents heat from escaping. The lower the number, the greater a products resistance to heat flow and better insulating value. Finally, all ProVia Windows are Energy Star rated. Better Products, Best Installation. Better Window.
Does the ProVia window meet NFCR specifications?
Yes, ProVia tests all its windows to NFRC specifications. Summary results are available for your review at www.NFRC.com.
What does fenestration mean?

Are you a partner with Energy Star?

What is air infiltration?
The air infiltration rate is a measurement of the amount of air that can pass through a window. Air infiltration rates are set by certifying organizations and are verified by independent tests and reflect the amount of air that passes through a closed window. The lower the air infiltration rate, the less drafts in your home and lower fuel costs.

What is the difference between Vinyl, Wood and Aluminum ?
First and foremost, vinyl windows are maintenance free and never need painting or staining. ProVia vinyl windows are strong and durable, do not expand and contract like wood windows, and do not conduct like aluminum windows. With the change in climate we have in Wisconsin, windows that shrink, swell or conduct from hot to cold cause major heating and cooling loss. ProVia Windows filled with foam are actually warm to the touch because they do not conduct heat or cold like aluminum windows. Vinyl never loses it shape and because of its insulating properties ProVia Vinyl Windows will save you money on your heating and cooling costs. ProVia vinyl windows are lead-free and made from SunShield Vinyl. ProVia’s superior quality stands up in all 4 seasons
What is Low E?
Low-emissivity (Low-E) coatings are microscopically thin, virtually invisible, metallic oxide layers deposited on a window surface primarily to reduce the U-Factor by suppressing radiative heat, thus lowering the total heat flow through the window. Different types of Low-E coatings have been designed to allow for high solar gain, moderate solar gain and low solar gain.
Are ProVia Windows Fusion Welded and why is it important?
Yes, all ProVia Windows are fusion-welded on both the frame and the sashes. This enables the windows to be structurally strong and aesthetically pleasing.
Do you have a referral program?

How long will it take to install my new windows and or doors?

What is weatherstripping and how does I affect my windows?

In independent air infiltration studies, Endure Windows rate significantly better than other window brands. That means you save energy dollars!
