A-B.E.S.T. is the local Maine company that manufactures, sells, and installs their own windows.

Located on Broadway in South Portland, A-B.E.S.T. Window offers a full line of custom-sized vinyl replacement window options. “For almost every window project a customer is contemplating, we can present a window solution,” says General Manager Adam Soule. A-B.E.S.T. Window is a family-owned company that prides itself on its local roots and the fact that they have been in business for over 25 years. Adam’s father, Jim Soule, and uncle, Paul Soule, established A-B.E.S.T. Window in South Portland in 1985. The family-owned establishment has installed over 165,000 windows for home and business owners in the state of Maine since its inception. Adam says the majority of AB. E.S.T. Window customers are located along the I-95 corridor between Kittery and Augusta. A-B.E.S.T. windows are made locally in Scarborough. AB. E.S.T. is one of only a few Maine companies to manufacture, sell, and install their own windows. This allows A-B.E.S.T. to sell factory direct, which Adam explains eliminates the middle man. “If a customer has a question about one of our windows they can make one call.” The company promises a 20-year comprehensive warranty with every installation, which Adam says gives their customers peace of mind. The warranty covers the glass and all working window components, including locks and balances. A-B.E.S.T.’s window installations are an energy efficient way to weatherize your home and the company works with Efficiency Maine and the P.A.C.E. loan program. A P.A.C.E. loan is a revolving loan that aids people in weatherizing their residence. Efficiency Maine provides an energy audit to determine your weatherization needs and provides a P.A.C.E. loan to cover the costs of the energy-saving upgrades needed. A-B.E.S.T. Window works with Efficiency Maine to provide energy efficient windows to customers that help lower heating costs and energy consumption. If you receive a P.A.C.E. loan to weatherize your home call A-B.E.S.T. Window for your energy efficient window needs. All A-B.E.S.T. windows are vinyl, the most cost effective window construction material with the most longevity. “The saying goes vinyl is final,” explains Adam. A-B.E.S.T. Window offers Energy Star Certified window options, and all of their windows are Envirosealed. This combination reduces energy consumption and can save customers money on energy costs. “We have had many customers call and tell us that they have noticed dramatic savings in their yearly heating costs,” Adam says. “Energy Efficiency is a huge factor right now when you’re looking at doing home renovations and we pride ourselves on contributing to that effort.” For a local family-owned business that you can trust look no further than A-B.E.S.T. Window. “We install each and every window in your home as if they were being put in our own home,” Adam promises. For more information call 799-6771 or visit them online at www.abestwindow.com.
