Provia vs. Seaway

#1 Post by birdog3344 »

Hi,
I have 2 quotes for 5 replacement casement windows (and sliding door). One is for Provia windows (and door), the other is for Seaway windows (and Provia door). The second is 1K more.

What is the consensus about which casement windows are better quality: Provia or Seaway?

Thank you!

The contractor consensus would be that Provia is the better company. Not sure what the specifications or other details are on the products in this comparison so, we need a bit more details.

+1.

-Which models?
-What is the price? Neither of these are top tier options, you may be able to find a better window for the money
-Where are you located? Some products are regional, we may be able to offer recommendations on product or even install company based on location.

Seaway make a good window. Its “ under the radar” so to speak but its a pretty solid offering with some good performance numbers, its certainly better than harvey.

To be honest I saw the Seaway once and it was made very well and I actually like it better than the provia window.
That said, I saw Seaways top window offering. Which Seaway window did you see? Do you know which series?
Im assuming you live near Seaway?
