About Harvey Building Products
Founded in 1961 in Waltham, MA, Harvey Building Products is a manufacturing company producing windows, doors, and porch enclosures. As one of a few manufacturers in the U.S. who takes responsibility for designing all of their own window products, Harvey has complete control over the quality of their products from start to finish. Their company is a wholesale distributor, which means they do not sell to individual retail consumers. Instead, Harvey works with contractors and builders to provide them with a full line of building products. If you are interested in Harvey windows for your home, you can contact their customer service line to be referred to a contractor in your area.
Today, Harvey has over 1,200 employees who work primarily in their manufacturing plants, warehouses, and headquarters all located in the Northeast. Harvey aspires to become the best independently owned wholesale distributor and manufacturer in their industry. This goal motivates them to remain loyal to their employees and customers, to give back to their community, and make environmentally responsible choices through the process of manufacturing and distributing their products.
Types of Windows Manufactured by Harvey Building Products
As the top manufacturer of insulated windows in the Northeast, Harvey Building Products manufactures a wide variety of windows, each custom-sized to fit the specific needs of your project. Continue reading to learn more about the windows available through Harvey Building Products:
Double Hung Windows
This window is considered a class in the window industry. Harvey’s double hung windows have two operational sashes, with the bottom sash sliding upwards and the top sash sliding downwards to open, creating exceptional ventilation for a room. Additionally, both sashes of this window can be tilted inwards to allow for easy cleaning of outdoor glass. Harvey’s double hung windows are available in the Classic Vinyl, Majesty Wood, Tribute, Acoustic, Slimline, Vigilance, and Storm collections.
Single Hung from Harvey
Similarly to a double hung window, this window has two sashes hung vertically. In this design, however, only the bottom sash operates by sliding from the bottom upwards. Harvey’s single hung windows are available in the Classic Vinyl collection.
Casement Windows from Harvey
Harvey’s casement windows open easily with a latch. These windows have hinges on one side and open outwards on the opposite side, allowing for maximum ventilation. The casement windows by Harvey are available in the Classic Vinyl, Majesty Wood, and Vigilance collections.
Awning Windows from Harvey
Much like a casement window, awning windows have a single sash. These windows have a hinge along the top and open outwards to allow air into the room. Because these windows have a single sash, they allow plenty of natural light into a room. Harvey’s awning windows are available in the vinyl, Majesty Wood, and Vigilance collections.
Hopper Windows from Harvey
A hopper window is a single sash window with a hinge along the bottom. These windows open from the top, outwards, allowing air to flow into the room. Harvey’s hopper windows are available in the Classic Vinyl collection and are only available in almond or white.
Rolling Windows from Harvey
Two sashes are placed side-by-side to create rolling windows. Typically, each sash can slide vertically to open the window. Since the rolling windows manufactured by Harvey are set on brass rollers, they are easy to open. Harvey’s rolling windows are available in the Classic Vinyl, Acoustic, and Storm Collections.
Picture Windows from Harvey
This window is stationary and has a single pane of glass. Picture windows provide an unobstructed view and bring plenty of natural light into any room. The picture windows by Harvey are available in the Classic Vinyl, Majesty Wood, Acoustic, Vigilance, and Storm collections.
Bay & Bow Windows from Harvey
A traditional bay window has three joined windows of varying sizes placed at either 30 or 45 degrees angles, extruding into the outdoor environment. Typically, the center window is an inoperable picture window and the two on either side are opening casement windows. A bow window, however, has three or more operational, joined windows of equal size which curve gently outward into the environment. The bay and bow windows at Harvey are available in the Classic Vinyl and Majesty Wood collections.
Garden Windows from Harvey
This window extends out into the environment completely, surrounded by glass. Many garden windows have an interior shelf, allowing for plants and flowers to receive plenty of natural light. Harvey’s garden windows are available in the Classic Vinyl collection.
Designer Shapes Windows from Harvey
Harvey’s Building Products has created a line of windows which allow you to bring your own personal style to the windows of your home. The designer shapes windows are available in octagons, triangles, round tops, and full circles and Harvey’s offers countless ways for homeowners to customize their windows.
