AAWD was founded in 1994, primarily as a replacement window company for the Multi-Family Housing Industry. Today, we are a full-service Building Exterior Specialists, and a leading building product source and installation provider. We offer products that fit every building design and requirement, matched with the expertise to ensure proper installation.
We specialize in window & door replacement & renovations for Multifamily Housing, Building Conversions, and Adaptive Reuse projects. We are also a Qualified Government Housing Contractor and have completed a significant number of affordable housing projects, installing tens of thousands of windows in New Jersey, New York Pennsylvania, and Connecticut.
Customers who know us, often say they hire us because of our workmanship, attention to detail, excellent communication, and our respect for their residents. They appreciate the long tenure of our crew members which signifies a reliable professional is handling their project. Our crew members know keeping customers happy during the installation process and treating each resident’s home like their own, is one of the core principles they must bring to each project.
As you review our Project Portfolio gallery, keep in mind these replacement and renovation projects were mostly undertaken while the building was fully occupied with residents. It is especially critical that the utmost attention to customer care and safety along every step of the process is implemented. Looking after residents’ and property manager’s concerns during the installation process is key to a successfully installed project. As a result of that goal, we have earned our reputation by delivering exceptional care and service. Today, we are one of the premier window and door replacement companies for Occupied Space renovations.
One of the key reasons we successfully complete large projects with such precision and consistency, is that our process has been honed and refined from over 100 years of combined installation experience. Every step of the way we proactively account for each aspect of the installation, including when unexpected circumstances arise. With our experienced crews having control and management of all steps of the installation process, AAWD can masterfully deliver each unit completed to the highest standards… every time.
"AAWD has completed projects at four of my properties; we are under contract for a fifth project set to begin soon. Those projects have ranged in size and scope from simple window replacement at a small 3 story 24unit building to window, balcony door and A/C sleeve replacement in a 261-unit, 15 story high-rise. All of these projects were done while the buildings were occupied. I have yet to hear a complaint about your work or process. AAWD does an exemplary job of keeping ownership, management, and the tenants updated on the project and somehow manage to keep tenants smiling even as the sound of Sawzalls and screw guns fill the air."
Mill Creek Residential Trust recently completed an adaptive reuse rehabilitation of over 500,000 historical sq. ft. in Jersey City, for which we received a “Best in America Living” award from the National Association of Home Builders. AAWD was an important member of the team which executed this project. With over 1,100 large commercial aluminum windows to be provided, most of them uniquely sized, and an extremely challenging schedule with equally challenging logistics, AAWD was faced with a very difficult challenge. They exceeded this challenge with true professionalism. They were a true pleasure to work with and the end product was exceptional, receiving many compliments from industry design and construction peers. They are extremely knowledgeable about their products and their crews represent some of the best tradesmen in the industry.
“This renovation was carried out using Community Development Block Grants(CDBG) funds, which brought a level of complexity and urgency to the project. It is with pleasure that I recommend AAWD. The company was able to accommodate an aggressive construction schedule to keep the project in compliance with the CDBG/HUD requirements. Through the company’s strong vendor relationships, organized and efficient workmanship, a critical deadline was met for substantial completion of work. AAWD project manager, foreman, mechanics and laborers alike conducted themselves with great professionalism on the site. Workers at all levels took exceptional responsibility in their work and did so with pride, while being sensitive to the needs of the elderly residents whose homes were being disturbed by the construction and were especially cognizant of site cleanliness.”
“Our project was a 22-story occupied residential tower which needed tremendous amount of façade work, including all new windows. AAWD was helpful during the bidding process with timely responses to our questions, as well as making recommendations for proper product selections based upon our concerns. We awarded AAWD the window package and found them a great fit for this project. The kept to the schedule, their crew was professional and worked well in occupied units where tenant safety is a concern. We have since come to lean on AAWD expertise for other projects in NY & NJ.”
“AAWD replaced the windows in a five story, seventy-five-unit building, housing senior and disabled residents. The replacement of the windows was a seamless process with windows being replaced quickly and efficiently without disrupting the occupants’ daily routine. The workers were polite, friendly and went above and beyond the contract. They left the area spotless! We were so pleased we awarded the window and door replacement contract for the HPHA, a six story, 100-unit senior/disabled building. I look forward to working with AAWD again, as I know that I can count on them to complete the job in a timely manner with little disruption to the people we serve. I highly recommend AAWD. They are accessible, reliable and the installers are patient and courteous.”
