In a previous blog, “ProVia, Synergy, and Model ReModel – Forging an Aesthetic Alliance,” we described our sponsorship in Professional Remodeler’s annual renovation project and introduced you to Mina and Mark Fies of Synergy Design & Construction. The Fies purchased a mid-century modern home in the Lake Anne neighborhood of Reston, Virginia, with the goal of turning an older house into a contemporary, comfortable home while highlighting their design aesthetic.
An important aspect of the design plan and remodel was incorporating the same exterior and indoor building products that Synergy would recommend to their homeowner clients. Customers appreciate knowing their contractor specifies the same products they would use in their own home. The Fies selected ProVia’s Endure line of vinyl replacement windows and patio doors for their energy efficiency and curb appeal.
Premium Quality and Multiple Styles
Endure vinyl windows from ProVia deliver the goods in comfort, energy savings and curb appeal. Offerings include double hung, slider, casement / awning, hopper, picture, garden, bay & bow, and classic architectural shapes, and each configuration is sized according to need. With Endure windows, custom is standard – every window is manufactured to the client’s preference.
ProVia incorporates optimum levels of technology to produce a window that will work continually at peak performance. Endure ENERGY STAR®-certified vinyl windows use much less energy to stay warm in the winter and cool in the summer. The materials and construction of Endure windows, the frame design, and the enhancements made to the glass work together to result in a durable vinyl window that is independently tested and certified by the National Fenestration Rating Council, and meets guidelines set by the EPA.
Endure windows are designed to suit your tastes. For a classic look, ProVia offers interior frame colors in White, Beige, Sandstone, White Woodgrain, Classic Oak, Dark Oak, and Traditional Cherry, and exteriors in White, Beige, Sandstone, and Classic Bronze. Or select a painted exterior in eighteen colors, including Mountain Berry, Coal Black, and Enzian Blue. Homeowners have numerous options for glass as well, including stained, privacy, tinted, and decorative, plus various grids and internal blinds.
Form and Function
The Model ReModel home renovation incorporated ten new windows and a set of new patio doors, improving the 1969 home’s curb appeal, functionality, and energy efficiency. Mina and Mark selected seven Endure slider style windows, two picture windows, and one double hung, along with a set of sliding glass patio doors. Each style had White interior and Classic Bronze exterior frames, FineLine corner welds, BetterVue Screen Mesh, and ComforTech DLA-UV glass; the picture windows incorporated Obscure privacy glass.
The Fies are happy with their Endure windows. “After living with our new ProVia windows and doors for some time now, we are continually impressed by the quality and functionality they provide,” stated Mark. “Aside from their energy efficiency, we’re thrilled with their appearance and ease of operation. As business owners, we also align well with Provia’s core philosophy and values.”
