The Green Leader Of Manufacturers

From using 100% recycled products for their cardboard packaging to minimizing their vinyl scrap through computer technologies, we rate them as the best company for green conscious consumers looking to support locally owned businesses that adhere to Energy Star and USGBC code.
With Harvey, they don’t stop their leadership with their green building practices. In fact, they go out of their way to get involved in their local communities and have played a pivotal role in the Homes For Our Troops program since 2009.

As a sponsor of HFOT, Harvey has donated thousands of dollars in supplies and workforce and continue to push forward as a primary sponsor in 2014.
Harvey’s Vinyl Windows Line-Up
As a manufacturer and distributor to home builders and contractors, the company has several product lines to choose from.
With a U-value close to 0.30 and a DP of 30, the Tribute line of windows is among the best performing and aesthetically pleasing windows for home owners. The are also the most expensive and the top of the line window produced by Harvey BP.
Considered by professionals to be the best value window in the industry, the Classic series has a block and tackle mechanism with even more glass than the Tribute line.
It is hard to beat the value in the Classic series, and often times the more expensive products from other companies don’t outweigh the cost value from this line. They have an upper sash width of 3 5/8″, lower sash of 3 1/8″, U-value at 0.32, DP of 35, AI rating of 0.14, STC 28, and SHGC of 0.30 truly make it the stand out choice in the mid-priced windows market.
In order to compete with more cost friendly offerings, Harvey introduced their Slimline series at a steep discount from the mid and high end offerings. The Slimline series frame is 0.25″ thinner their other series and with an STC of 28, they provide plenty of glass and good sightlines. We would only recommend this series for smaller openings and think value wise you are better off choosing their Classic series 99% of the time.
