The BICA was developed by MRA to recognize outstanding performance in studies conducted by the firm.

For this survey, building trade professionals were interviewed using an unaided, out-bound telephone method. Only those individuals who have direct responsibility for purchasing entry and / or patio doors were interviewed. The sample was randomly selected, and collected from among the 48 contiguous states in relationship to building permits data compiled by Permits Plus of Ithaca, N.Y.

The distinction between the "Overall Highest Rated" and "Highest Summary Rated" awards is quite simple. "Overall Highest Rated" is a stand alone question in the survey asking respondent's first impression of their "Highest Rated" brand. "Highest Summary Rated" takes into account a calculated summary of all 16 attributes tested to mathematically determine the Highest Rated brand.

"Recipients of this award should feel extremely proud their companies were so highly regarded by industry professionals taking part in our extensive survey." Sixteen different attributes are tested on each brand mentioned by respondents.
