Pardon Our Dust!
Pardon Our Dust!

Pardon the dust! Perhaps you’ve been following our progress and have seen a few pictures of our new building on our Facebook page. We wanted to give you a sneak peek at what our new location will feature and the benefits it will provide our customers.

We’ve been at our current location since 1980 and although it has served us well, we were feeling a bit cramped. We wanted our new space to have a bright, open concept with designated areas to show products. Here are some of the new features we are excited about!

Keep Your Family Safe From Lead Poisoning
Keep Your Family Safe From Lead Poisoning



Even though steps have been taken to remove lead from products like paint, ceramics and plumbing materials, lead can still enter our environment. Learn to identify problem areas and keep your family safe.

Any home built before 1978 may have materials that contain lead. If you are considering a remodeling project, it would be wise to test several areas of the home to determine if lead is present. A professional company will get you the most accurate result, but test kits are available. If lead is present, consider hiring a service to remove the affected areas. If you proceed with remodeling, take precautions to keep dust at a minimum. Wear gear that covers your mouth, nose and eyes and employ an air purifier or vacuum with a HEPA filter.

Smackdown: Tempered vs Standard Glass!
Smackdown: Tempered vs Standard Glass!


It’s my favorite time of year—Halloween season! I don’t know about everyone else, but I love horror movies and one of the staples of iconic horror is… broken glass. Whether it’s the killer smashing their way inside to slice up some unsuspecting coeds or taking advantage so the poorly-dressed heroine can get a makeshift knife, broken glass is one of horror’s favorite props.

Bilco Paint & You

The Bilco Company has done such a good job marketing that their brand name has become synonymous with basement doors, the way Kleenex has taken over the word tissue.

Get Ready For Winter
Get Ready For Winter

Keep your home warm and save some money on utility bills by ensuring your house is prepped for winter. Let’s take a look at areas that commonly let in cold air (or let heat escape), so you can address them. 


Check for drafts. Examine the seals around the outside and inside of doors, windows and vents. Inspect caulking and weatherstripping for wear or areas that may be peeling away. Replace if necessary. Electrical outlets, switch plates, baseboards and attic hatches are other places you may feel some cold air entering your home. Some of these areas can be fixed with caulk or a foam sealant. When dealing with electrical areas, you should consult a professional. A drafty window could benefit from curtains or you could use a draft stopper for the base of a door. You may want to use a film insulation kit as a draft blocker for windows. If you find you are making more and more repairs to fix drafts, it may be time to replace these problem areas.

Provia Packaging
History of Cardboard Boxes

In 2018, Provia implemented a new packaging system to better protect their windows during shipping. All the windows are individually shipped fully-enclosed in custom-sized boxes. By shipping their windows like that, Provia adds the benefits of lowering the risk of damage, keeping the windows clean, keeping all components together, and allowing for a professional appearance on the job site.  Even better, all Provia’s boxes are recyclable!

The Heat is On! What Not to Keep in Your Garage
The Heat is On! What Not to Keep in Your Garage



The heat is on! Your garage is a great place to store items, but when the temperatures rise, there are some things that should never be kept in the garage. Look at this list and make some adjustments if necessary. We want all your belongings safe and in good shape for the years to come. 

Your spare refrigerator. We know it’s the ideal place to have one, but when temps start climbing, your fridge works overtime to keep it’s contents cold. That means more energy consumption and higher bills. Fridges work best when kept in a room that is around 65 to 78 degrees. If you have a spot in your basement or other room in the home, keep it there.

This review made our day! We are so thankful when a customer takes the time to leave us a review. We wanted to share this one in it’s entirety with you.

“I recently had the pleasure of engaging A.B.E Doors and Windows for a garage door spring replacement at Austin's Auto Service in Bethlehem. I cannot speak highly enough of their quick service and immediate response.

From the moment I reached out to, their professionalism and efficiency were evident. They understood the urgency of the situation and promptly scheduled the service, ensuring minimal disruption to our operations. Their commitment to providing exceptional service is truly commendable.

Our Spring Cleaning Tips

Lasting Finish!

Provia recommends using any spray-on car wax to preserve the finish and shine of their entrance doors, either steel or fiberglass. You can spray the wax directly on the door and then polish with a soft cloth or apply the wax to the cloth and then wipe down the door. It will help to keep your door looking as good as the day it was installed.

Garage Door Safety
Garage Door Safety


Your garage door is by far the largest, heaviest object that moves in your home. That’s why it’s so important you maintain it properly and ensure it’s safety with these tips and precautions.

Talk to your children (and their friends) about not playing with the door or the remote control. There are over 40,000 injuries to kids every year caused by the garage door. Keep yours safe by explaining they should never hang on to door when it is moving and always stay a safe distance away when the door is in operation. Keep remotes away from curious little hands and mount the opener button high enough that small children can not reach it.
