Blow door demonstration with David White and Paul Castrucci Architect by Paul Castrucci

A blower door is a machine used to measure the airtightness of buildings. It can also be used to measure airflow between building zones, to test ductwork airtightness and to help physically locate air leakage sites in the building envelope.

Demonstration was part of Open House New York Weekend Open House. 

Mavirk windows installed and affordable housing projects inprocess by Paul Castrucci

Mavrik windows are well priced and were just the right window for our passive house retrofit project in the East Village. The Mavrik team was great to work with and had deep technical understanding of the product as well as Passive House design. The team provided quality service and timely delivery. We are very pleased with the outcome.
