It’s a fact. The advantages of Marvin Windows for new installations or replacements in your distinctive home are many. And that’s why we exclusively install Marvin products—windows, as well as doors—in the southeastern Pennsylvania homes we remodel and build additions to here at Twin Brook Construction.
But, what are some of those advantages for your home? Today’s blog post looks a little closer at how Marvin achieves its company mission of designing for people and creating better ways of living. Much of this has to do with their commitment to supplying only the best dealers and installers, like Twin Brook Construction.
Marvin Windows are Known for High Quality and Durability
Many of Marvin’s window offerings feature fiberglass construction inside and out, which doesn’t warp and cannot rot. This means your Marvin Windows will naturally last longer while performing better in every season. That’s better than most all-wood windows and mass-market vinyl replacement windows!
Of course, Marvin also understands some homeowners’ preference for all-wood or wood-clad windows in their homes, which is why they offer both of these material options, as well. If you live in a historic home or you are dedicated to particular aesthetics for any reason, Marvin can accommodate your needs and design priorities.
And, this manufacturer has some of the highest standards in the industry for wood sourcing and processing to ensure extremely high quality in their finished windows.
Marvin Windows Are Low Maintenance for Busy Homeowners
As we mentioned in the previous section, many of Marvin’s most popular window options are constructed using fiberglass materials—either their High-Density Fiberglass, which incorporates a sturdy resin, or their premium Ultrex® pultruded fiberglass.
The benefits of fiberglass include excellent thermal performance to keep your home more comfortable year-round and long-lasting finishes that won’t fade. With fiberglass, you can go ahead and choose that trendy darker sash color you love without fear of it looking faded and worn after just a few years. In fact, you should never have to repaint fiberglass windows, though it is possible to do so.
Marvin Windows Feature Excellent Energy Efficiency
As a manufacturer, Marvin prides itself on offering both windows and doors that can help reduce your utility bills and maximize your home’s comfort. Through technology like “Low-E” glass coatings, insulating glass, and triplane glazing—which means your window incorporates three panes of glass instead of only one or two—Marvin delivers some of the most energy-efficient windows available today.

Marvin Windows Warranties are the Best in the Business
Generally, Marvin’s limited warranty on manufacturing and window parts is 10 or 20 years, depending on the part in question—glass components verses non-glass components, for instance—and a window’s overall size. Their interior and exterior finish options also carry a variety of different guarantees of between five and 20 years.
It’s notable to mention that you will not find many better guarantees on workmanship and quality than Marvin offers on its products. These need to be installed correctly, however. And this is why it is crucial to have a trustworthy home improvement contractor like Twin Brook Construction ensuring the best results for your window or other home exterior project. We can also help you if you ever have to file a warranty claim with Marvin.
Marvin Windows Offer Beautiful Designs in a Range of Collections
By now, it’s probably clear that Marvin offers an incredible variety of different window material options, sizes, and types—from double-hung to casement windows, specialty shapes, picture, bay, and bow windows, too.
To help you narrow your selections, the manufacturer has grouped its offerings into collections, which have different common characteristics. You can choose from:
The Marvin Signature™ Ultimate Product Line
The name “Ultimate” says it all.
