Provia Endure Windows Reviews

Provia windows warranty cost reviews

Provia Endure is a window line that you may not be familiar with. While traditionally known as a door manufacturer Provia expanded into windows several years ago. The Endure line is their top of the line window model. Is it worth the cost and nicer than the competition? Is it worth the additional cost compared to the cheaper Provia Aspect window? We’ll see.

If you’ve recieved a quote for Provia Endure windows you probably heard all sorts of claims from the salesperson. The in-home window salespeople can be a tricky bunch. It’s certainly possible that the salesperson overhyped the products to try to get the sale.

Provia Endure window brochure and reviews.

What are the highlights?

In their marketing materials Provia talks about many features that are also available from many other window manufacturers. Things like 3-1/4″ jamb depth, upgraded balance mechanisms, reinforced sashes, dual vent locks, etc are all pretty common. A salesman might act like these are unique features but they’re not.

As an example, if you’ve seen their brochure for the Endure model you’ve probably seen this picture. It’s showing their sash reinforcement that they call Innergy compared to an aluminum reinforcement. The picture is meant to show you that the non-metallic reinforcement is much more efficient. What they forget to mention is that almost no nicer vinyl windows are using metallic reinforcement anymore except in specific situations.

Provia Endure features and options along with cost and warranty info.

As you can see in the picture the non-metallic reinforcement is better than aluminum but nobody really uses aluminum anyway so not too relevant.

In a similar strategy the brochure talks about Neopor foam insulation and barrier-fin weather stripping, both also very common options.

In short it’s a decent option but doesn’t really offer anything that you can’t get from many other manufacturers.

Do they offer blinds in the windows?

Provia does offer blinds in the Endure line, but that’s an option you might not want to rush into.

Provia Endure blinds in the windows.

While a lot of prospective customers ask about blinds in the windows it’s important to remember Provia only offers a 10 year warranty on them. 10 years can sound like a long time but it’ll go by in a flash. Blinds in windows can be a pretty expensive option too and if you need to replace them in 11 years get ready for a big bill.

If they expected the blinds to last longer they’d offer a longer warranty. By offering a short warranty they’re telling you that they don’t expect the blinds to hold up very long. I’d avoid that option.

What about the color options?

You can see the available colors for this window model below. Exterior colors have become increasingly popular and Provia offers a range of color options similar to most manufacturers.

Provia Endure painted exterior color options.

One nice feature is that the Provia window colors can match the door color options. That can let you get an exact match in your windows and doors which is unique.

Keep in mind adding exterior colors can add $200 or more to the cost of your Provia windows. You might consider white windows with a different color exterior trim as an option to keep costs down.

What should Provia Endure windows cost?

As you might expect lots of people ask us about replacement window costs and there isn’t always a simple answer. Everything is custom made and remodeling projects can be unique so prices can vary.

I’d say a reasonable cost for a white window with basic options would be in the range of $400 -$500 before installation. Some companies won’t want to break out their installation costs separately which can make things harder to compare. I’d say maybe $600-$700 per window installed is a typical cost.

Is there a Provia Endure patio door?

They do also make a Provia Endure patio door line and we’ll be completing a review on that product soon.

What about the Provia Endure warranty?

The warranty for the Provia Endure is the same as the Provia Aspect and it’s pretty decent. Like most manufacturers they offer lifetime warranties on their windows. There are however a lot of limitations.

For example, if the purchaser doesn’t live in the house, say it’s a rental, the warranty is only 5 years. In that case the warranty on the blinds goes from a short 10 years to a very short 5 years and there is no glass breakage warranty.

We’ll have a more thorough post on the Provia window warranties online soon. For now I’d say it’s a decent warranty but certainly not unique or any better than the warranty you’d see from any other nicer manufacturer.

So, what’s the bottom line?

Ultimately there aren’t really any patents in the vinyl window business. Most manufacturers offer a range of models to cover a range of price points. The Provia Endure window is perfectly nice but not really remarkable in any way. You can get basically all of the same features and options from many companies so there’s no need to fall in love with this one.

    I would avoid these windows at all costs. I had 27 windows installed by a reputable installer in my area. I watched them install the windows, tape all around etc but my windows mow make a whistling sound on a windy day. I had someone from Provia come out and basically say that’s normal and that they only test to 25 MPH and that with today’s regulations, the clearances are tighter and some air sounds may be heard. Sounds like a bunch of BS to me. I am still trying to work with them but no luck so far and wanted to let everyone else know of my experience.

    1. Thanks for that Jim. I’m currently in the market and the installer is pushing this product.

    2. Which series of Pro Via window do you have?

  2. Owen Koehn says:

    I got these windows and I wanted to like them but they were probably the worst windows I have ever installed I am a general contractor wanting to give the best product to my customer and now I have to sleep at night not satisfied with a product I chose for them the sides were not straight so I had to try to make them straight, the seal piece on bottom of window to long so buckled, ugly staples holding the seal in place, very thin cheap looking plastic, the surface has scratches on every window..I am very disappointed. I have used Polaris windows for years and so much better

  3. In this article, you said that the window would cost $400-$500 a window without install. Then you said $600-$700 would be a good price installed. So, you’re claiming that a company can install correctly with proper flashing, exterior lumber or aluminum work, spray insulation, clean up, sealant, trim stops inside and then warranty for $100-$200?
    That barely pays for the gas to get to the job site.
    This advice is why people go cheap and get shoddy work.

    1. thewindowdog says:

      Hi Jeff, thanks for taking the time to write. How much do you charge for installation for Provia windows? I’m always interested to hear what other folks are doing out there.

      1. Well, if I paid say $500 for a premium Endure window. One with a superspacer, triple pane, krypton gas, U-rating of .16/.17, it’s going to cost about $100-$175 to get that installed in my area. Culver’s pays $21 an hour. Companies are dying for installers so you have to pay more right now. If you only pay an installer $100/125, you will have to hold their hand through it, probably. Or at least watch and inspect more carefully than most crews to make sure the customer is taken care of. Those crews tend to “forget” to insulate around the frame. Or they won’t use proper G8 aluminum. They go cheap. Then to offer a real lifetime warranty on labor and products, you have to assume you will be visiting that home a few times. Gas for the sales rep, vehicle costs, commission for the sales rep, marketer pay, service crews to drive around the state, lead costs are insane right now. You have to be over $1,200 a window to have healthy business that takes good care of every customer and the customer doesn’t have to worry about their warranty going away due to a company closing the doors.

        1. thewindowdog says:

          Hi Jeff, $1200 per window is more than I would have expected but things are different now than they were a few years ago. That’s for sure. Thanks for taking the time to write.

          1. I am in the market right now for replacement windows and I have been searching for a good quality vinyl windows and installation company, unfortunately the prices have gone so much higher! Yesterday, I had a champion windows and doors representative coming over to our home and he quoted us over $53,000
            based on a standard vinyl option with only one update which was a tan exterior color for only 13 windows! He offered a discount promotion saying buy two windows and get two windows for free and after all his math, he offered us 13 windows for over $28,000 if you buy it today. I was so disappointed with such a scam!

          2. thewindowdog says:

            Obviously nobody in the free world is going to pay $53,000 for 13 vinyl replacement windows. One strategy companies will use is to throw out a super high number like that so their next number of $28,000 looks so much lower. Obviously $28k for 13 windows is still insanely high but I have to assume some people go with it. If nobody bought after tactics like that I’d have to think they’d stop doing it. Thanks for sharing your experience with Champion Windows.

        2. George Barksdale says:

          Jeff is right on point with the cost. We are at a similar price point for the windows and capping.

        3. Thanks for your reply. I recently was quoted for provia Endure windows and I came to google looking for price information. My quoted windows were about $1300 each and the sales rep told me that there was about a $200 wiggle room to work with for each window. So to see your reply quoting about $1200 sounds much more reasonable.

        4. Marie Harker says:

          What state are you in?

    2. The way I read that was 400- to 500 for cost of windows. Then the 600-700 dollars was cost of install. That would be 1000-1200 total cost. Which seems inline with most other companies.

    3. John Wallace says:

      Almost all contractors bring in illegal workers with them and pay them minimum wages. All while homeowners are being unfairly ripped off being told that “inflation” is the problem. “Inflation” in 2024 is being used as an excuse to get rich by contractors! As always, it’s buyer beware. Don’t be naive to trust or believe any contractor. Do online research; check their references, BBB reviews, online reviews, and ensure they are licensed to operate. Get 3-5 estimates from reputable installers and do your due diligence in reviewing products. Once you decide on a product, review Youtube videos on how proper installations should be done and when the work is being done, make sure that it is being done correctly. Don’t just leave them to do the bare minimal to get by with a quick installation.

  4. Erica Johnson says:

    I had Provia Endure windows installed today and am having serious buyer’s remorse. They look nice and appear to be installed properly, but they let more sound through than the 45 year old aluminum windows with broken seals that they are replacing. I’m now going to have to spend more money to try to dampen the noise from motorcycles and screaming children.

    1. thewindowdog says:

      Hi Erica, that seems strange. Do you know which glass package you picked for the Provia windows? The triple pane glass will likely block more sound than double pane, but it’s not the cheapest change to make after the windows are installed.

      1. William J Kassakatis says:

        As a window expert myself, with 27 + years in the industry, and a current Owner of an exterior remodeling company that sells thousands of ProVia Endure Series windows per year, this sounds like an improper installation. I can attest, the ProVia Endure series window, installed properly, will not allow more sound in than an old aluminum window, in fact, it should drastically decrease the sound. They also will not allow whistling to occur when properly installed. You want to make sure the windows are installed properly otherwise, you are wasting money on a beautiful product. Make sure you ask your contractor how they install the window because that can arguably, be more impactful than the window itself.

        In today’s climate, 2023, The proper price on average should range between $780-$900 per window with installation and warranty. I have installed tens of thousands of the ProVia Endure series windows with no complaints about air, sound, or water infiltration. The price range is very dependent on what is call U.I. (United Inches) bracket and which is the width plus the height, that number falls into the U.I. bracket. This is the primary cost of any window. Then add-ons like grids, glass packages, paint, hardware, and so forth will dictate a higher price tag. Lastly, on price, a shaped window that is not a square or rectangle will cost a lot more than a standard double-hung.

        I actually installed them in my own home, including the Endure series sliding glass door and I do not get any air, whistling, or added sound. In fact, we have nothing but raving reviews on ProVia Endure series windows. Why, well we install them the proper way every single time.

        I hope this is helpful.

        1. Jeffrey Bennett says:

          appreciate your comments. we are getting quotes of $1500 per window. does that seem extreme. in south carolina near columbia.

          1. I just ordered through a pretty reputable installer in PA. They quoted $1250 (for the ‘gold’ triple paned in white with no grids) to start. Then they offered $1005 per for buying same day, you know the typical selling tactics. I was able to get them down to $950 per unit. I think that’s reasonable since they’re supposed to be a good installer. I’m hoping I’ll be happy with them.

        2. February 2024 I was quoted $15,000 for 9 ProVia Endure double pane, double hung windows with argon gas and low-e for my replacement windows. One window is odd shaped and will actually just be a picture window. And one will be triple pane to help with noise reduction. It’s a mobile home. But I felt like the quote was insanely high.

    2. Wendy Bishop says:

      I had Continental Siding install Provia Endure (I ordered windows and this is what I got) these windows let so much noise in it is crazy. I live near railroad tracks and I swear that it seems like the windows are open it is so noisy. Also the middle part of the double hung is warping. Continental is going to replace them but if half have warped in the sun what is going to keep them from warping in the future?

    3. Erica Johnson says:

      These are double-paned. Instead of complaining here right after they were installed, I should have inspected them all carefully. It was only quite recently that I noticed one window with a very noticeable manufacturing defect: there is a large gap in the corner of the gasket at the bottom of the top window. You can only see it if you open the bottom window and stick your head behind it. I was wondering why that room was cold last winter. When I looked at the gaskets at the bottom of all the other windows many of them were deformed, even ones that have basically never been opened. I can’t prove these were like that when they were installed, but I bet they were. I have no way of knowing whether they were installed correctly, but I still think the windows themselves stink.

  5. Tim Zenner says:

    I had the double pane Provia Endure windows put in this past April.
    I’m super happy with them in every way. Noticeably quieter in the house
    now than with my old windows. Also using less heating and cooling.
    The looks inside and out are absolutely fine. No complaints there either.
    Now I’ve only had them for 19 weeks, so it’s still too early to make a
    final review, but I’ve had ZERO issues with wind noise or any other noise,
    and no question I am using less energy to heat and cool the house now.

  6. Bill Delgado says:

    Having 11 Provia Endure EN600 windows installed today and tomorrow. All 2nd floor windows were installed today and 5 1st floor windows tomorrow. My initial thoughts are they are so much nicer than the builder grade windows installed when home was built in 1994. Paid 7,800 for 11 windows. In Reading, PA 19605

  7. Michael Potts says:

    We just received a quote, from a Previa certified installer on March 9, 2024, in Howard County, Maryland. 15 windows, $28,900. That’s $1,926 per window installed. These are the Endure EN600, double hung, 0.19 U-Factor, snap-in frame sash (so not just one side has a screen), and double strength glass, no grids, no inside blinds, in white color. This seems to us like the installers are just plainly taking advantage of people and if ignorant or easily manipulated, it’s easy big money for the contractors. Particularly considering that almost all contractors are hiring illegal immigrants and pay them very low wages. Unfortunately, contractor prices vary widely, they start very high and it’s a game to try to figure out their scam discounts. It is almost impossible to find a trustworthy contractor that will charge a fair price.

    1. hi Michael, I am in Ellicott city 21043 and just had 35 Provia Endure installed by American Windows and Siding , I am super happy with with my choice and the price is much lower than your quote. Make sure you go to Provia website and select Platinum dealer for a better price.
