Provia Windows Reviews 2012

The only place Pella is better than other brands is in their advertising department. Pella vinyl and fiberglass windows are both terrible. You're paying a premium price for marketing, not for good windows. Inline makes a good window as well as patio doors, and ProVia is a good choice too.

Provia Aeris Review

I had someone from Provia Aeris out to do an estimate, and a lot seemed off. For one thing, he couldn't give me any numbers but said he would have to check with the factory and get back to me in a week. Also, I asked how it compared to some other brands and he said Softlite isn't high quality and he has never heard of Gorell, Amerimax, or Loewen. Seems like a window salesman should have heard of major players like those. The windows themselves, on their VT800 they are printed to look like wood but it's cheaply done, you can see pixels. They are just ugly.

Contractor Opinion

ProVia's "Aeris" label is often only available to larger volume dealers. I've bought several hybrid wood interior Aeris windows in the past, but I'm not very familiar with the VT 800. I took a look at the specs online and it looks similar to the Integra (pretty much their flagship window), but with the Dual Tech tilt housing. I really like that feature and it adds alot to the window in my opinion. A good quality window and the only complaint I have is the two point weatherstripping contact points. The AI numbers was around .09, which is pretty decent as well.

Provia Or Andersen

I'm looking to replace some casements and awning windows, a total of 14. I'm mainly thinking about Provia or Andersen, but the Andersens are really high. Provia has a better warranty, but I'm not sure how the window quality compares?

Provia isn't as well known as some brands, but they're a reliable company and they make a good window. I think they're equal to any of the more popular lines. I would take a look at Sunrise first, they have some new awnings coming out that are really nice, but other than that Provia is a decent choice.

Provia vs Marvin & RBA

I don't know a lot about Provia windows, but I do know their doors and I'm not a big fan. The Renewal by Andersen is okay, but not my favorite if you can afford something better. Look at Marvin's Infinity, it is about the same price as RBA but miles better in every way. Sunrise and Gorell are also really good, if you can fit them in your budget, they are a little higher but they're worth it.

Provia vs Sunrise

I'm not sure what I think about Provias. They used to have a good vinyl window, but it was more expensive than Softlite, Okna, or Sunrise in a comparable model. When you're spending a lot of money on windows, you don't want to spend extra money if you aren't getting better features or performance in return.

Provia vs Okna

Provia has a new PVC hybrid, the Aeris, that looks really good on the website. It might even be nicer that Starmark by Okna, I'd have to see them installed to be sure. The price is a little high, similar to a wood or clad window, but if it's as good as it looks that might be reasonable.

Provia vs Soft-Lite

I'm trying to decide between Provia Integra 300 and Softlite Imperial LS. The Softlite seems sturdier and seems to fit the frame better, but the bid is $650 more. That isn't a huge amount, but are they worth that much more? The Integra has a double compartment in the sill, but I don't know if that really cuts down on drafts or just makes it harder to clean.

You should take a look at the Softlite Elements. I like it a little more than the LS. The ProVia is good too and you should be happy with either one.

I really like ProVias doors. I haven't used their windows but the company is reliable. As far as Softlites go, I think you can never go wrong with any of their windows. The price difference is hard to determine, $650 is nothing if you're ordering 30 windows and it's a whole lot if you're only getting 2. I don't know the specs on the Integra, but I think it's NFRC certified and qualifies for tax credits, if you get the low-e and super spacer package.
