American Vision Windows
American Vision Windows (AVW) is owned and operated by Bill and Kathleen Herren. More than a decade ago, Bill and Kathleen were searching for sturdy replacement windows and patio doors like any other homeowners. Their two-storey home was mostly constructed with aluminum windows. And with a baby in the family, their concern for a draft near the infant’s crib escalated. With that, they approached a number of contractors and distributors for insulated and cost-effective window products. However, they stumbled around a number of poor-performing contractors and untrustworthy window companies. This prompted them to start the business and deliver exceptional service and outstanding products so other homeowners would not have to experience what they have gone through.
To date, the Herrens’ company has installed more than 360,000 window replacements in California. Behind them is a team of experts in home improvement who design and manufacture their window products. This is evidenced in their line of window manufacturing partners who meet their guidelines, like Milgard Windows, Anlin, and Great Lakes Window. These primary vendors of AVW are actually included in the 2010 Top 100 Window and Door Manufacturers.
The company’s available window styles are as follows:
- American Vision Casement Windows
- American Vision Garden Windows
- American Vision Double-Hung Windows
- American Vision Single-Hung Windows
- American Vision Sliding Windows
- American Vision Bay Windows
- American Vision Awning Windows
- American Vision Picture Windows
Each of these window styles are available in a variety of materials specialized by specific window manufacturers chosen by the company.Three manufacturers construct AVW’s Vinyl Replacement window line: Anlin Window Systems, Milgard Windows, and Ply Gem Windows.
AVW Wood Windows, on the other hand, are crafted by JT Windows, Inc. Conversely, Ply Gem Windows constructs the AVW Wood Clad Windows.
The AVW Fiberglass and AVW Aluminum lines of windows are constructed by Milgard Windows.

To start off, the company received a Lead-Safe Certified Firm stamp, which means their employees are trained and certified to handle installation and replacement projects on home units made before 1978. The company bagged a Super Service Award Logo in 2010, indicating that it is on the Angie’s List Super Service Award.
