Softcoat Low-E Glass — Softcoat Glass is chosen for climates where cooling costs outweigh heating costs in your energy usage, or where summer discomfort from heat build up is an important concern. This is the best glass for most applications in our climate. It has a very high reflection rate of the radiant outside heat to prevent heat gain in summer and in winter it still retains radiant heat once you turn on your furnace! Softcoat has a lower Solar Heat Gain Coefficient (SHGC) for our market in order to minimize Solar Heat Gain that results in extra work for your air conditioning unit.

Customize your Glass with Grilles
Window grills are the decorative bars that are placed in a way to make your windows look unique, and stand out from the rest of the street.
In-glass grilles are a great way to add distinction to your windows. Since they are installed between the glass panes, you’ll never have to clean them! They come in different colors, choose your color to ensure they match your interior and exterior style.

By way of this letter I would like to share my experience with AVWD as my PVC window and door supplier. After committing to another window company for a period of 7-½ years and being their top producer for sales in western Canada, I felt it was time to upscale my product and service to grow our business. It was a risky move going from a well established supplier at our shop to a new manufacturer but AVWD made the transition quick and smooth. In a period of weeks AVWD updated our showroom, truck logos, and signage to brand our new product to our business. I was very impressed that the owner of AVWD, Ron Steppacher, came on several occasions from Calgary to ensure all my requirements were met. I also have a very knowledgeable and hands-on local sales rep, Bruce Beilhartz, whose commitment has ensured our continuing success. AVWD has brought our company up to date with new window options and door products we could not have offered our customers with our previous supplier. Backed by their superior Energy Star rated products, industry leading warranty and commitment to outstanding service we have been energized to take our window and door sales to a new level. I am looking forward to a very busy summer with great success.
