We’re a small business focused on only one goal: to give you the highest-quality products and installation at a fair price. We’re not out to become the biggest; we just want to make our customers happy, one at a time.
Manufacturers vs Fabricators
Most window suppliers aren’t manufacturers in the true sense of the word. They don’t make their own vinyl (PVC) extrusions; they use suppliers who specialize in that. They are more appropriately called fabricators.
We look for similar qualities in our suppliers. After over 30 years, my crew and I have used just about every product on the market, and we know quality products and quality suppliers when we see them. Like us, our suppliers aren’t focused on their bottom line and becoming the biggest, but on providing exceptional quality for homeowners. They’re perfectionists, just like us, and are always looking for ways, not matter how small, to improve what they do. And like us, they’re passionate about what they do.
Our Window Fabricator
Aurora Window Systems is a boutique fabricator of the highest-quality vinyl windows and sliding patio doors. For more than a decade, Aurora has been serving high-end builders and renovation contractors in Calgary and surrounding area.
After seeing the vast array of commodity products on the market, Aurora’s owner, Kent Schultz, knew there was a need for the kind of quality demanded by the most discerning builders, contractors, and homeowners. After searching for the best PVC to work with, he found exactly what he was looking for in P.H. Tech, and soon became a licensee, knowing that he could now accomplish his objective.
Aurora also goes to exacting standards to provide customers with windows that offer the thermal performance, heat gain control, glare reduction, and other features they want.
Each window is custom fabricated to the exact measurements provided. If they make a mistake, they don’t expect installers to cover it up with some extra capping or trim. They do it all over again.
If you’d like to check out their products, Kent will be more than happy to visit with you and show you all the quality features that we believe put Aurora’s windows in a league of their own. His showroom may not be massive and dolled up to impress you like some others, but it’s the quality of the products that counts.
Our Vinyl (PVC) Manufacturer
P.H. Tech, based in Québec, is the manufacturer that provides the extrusions for our windows. They’re not one of the major manufacturers that supply the high-volume window fabricators. Instead, they cater to discerning fabricators and contractors that demand more than just average. Here’s a bit from their website:
“For more than 50 years, P.H. Tech has been designing windows and patio doors that satisfy every industry standard. Our goal: to meet and exceed every possible standard in order to ensure your total satisfaction…and comfort!”
While most extruders use various standardized blends, P. H. Tech insisted on developing its own formula to meet its exacting standards. The formula, developed over 30 years ago, has been constantly tested and improved to ensure products are the highest quality available.
As a result, the performance of P. H. Tech’s products is unmatched by other extruders:
- Unsurpassed impact resistance and strength throughout the product’s lifetime.
- No discoloration! P.H. Tech’s PVC will never yellow or weather over time.
- Maximized durability because our PVC will never flake, peel, or chip.
- Easy maintenance thanks to a semi-gloss finish and low porosity.
