Wendy Vaughan established her business in 2005, shortly before the Enron Trial, one of the largest corporate bankruptcies in history. Wendy Vaughan was selected to be on this jury and later was asked to share her experience with most major news media, nationally and internationally. After her experience during the four months of trial, she was deeply affected by the deception and lack of care and personal responsibility by the corporation's leaders. She vowed to build her home improvement company with integrity as the foundation and core of all business relationships; especially customers. As a full service home improvement company, focusing on roofing and energy efficiency products for the home , the company soon included window and door replacement services. As Avana began to grow, Vaughan decided to focus exclusively on window and door replacement.
Avana Windows & Doors was established with integrity as the center of the company's mission statement. As the company has grown, Wendy Vaughan has earned respect in the window replacement industry as an innovative, forward-thinking leader. She has partnered with such leading brands as Andersen Windows and Doors and has earned several certifications and awards of excellence in the field of home improvement. The company maintains the highest ratings from various review forums such as Google and the company's importance on integrity continues to prove Vaughan's commitment to always doing the right thing for her customers, staff and business partners.
