Soft Light Vinyl Windows
Vinyl windows are the most economical while providing all the benefits of replacing your old windows. You may currently have vinyl windows, but they are probably the lower quality “builder grade”. Our vinyl windows are constructed to a higher “professional grade” standard and are far more advanced.
Some people continue to have reservations about vinyl material as a window frame component, but we can assure you of the quality of our vinyl windows. The industry that manufactures these products continues to make tremendous strides in quality and durability and has since they were introduced nearly 50 years ago.
Marvin Fiberglass Windows
Popularity continues to grow among consumers for fiberglass windows. When facing extreme weather, the fiberglass windows are stronger and more durable than the vinyl options. Additionally, when working with darker colors, fiberglass window options resist fading better than other window types.
Andersen and Marvin Wood Clad Windows
The look of wood windows is very popular but they experience some functionality problems. Though wood is a strong building material, it reacts negatively to changing weather conditions. Wood is known for absorbing moisture, contracting and swelling, and requires routine maintenance and refinishing.
The wood window industry was created by two manufacturers–Andersen and Marvin–during the early 1900s. It wasn’t until the 60s that wood window companies began cladding the exterior with different materials to protect the wood. This way, homeowners can have the look, feel and strength of wood windows in the interior of their homes, without the maintenance. Choices of cladding materials include vinyl, fiberglass, composite, and aluminum.
