Options to Customize Marvin Windows

Windows play a crucial role in the functionality and comfort of your home. Over time, your home’s windows will show signs of aging. If your energy bills spike, you hear excess noise from outside, or you see condensation forming, it might be time to consider installing new windows.

You might be asking yourself, “Where do I start?” Well, you’re in luck. At Apple Exteriors, our window installation experts are happy to help you find the right window brand for your home and budget. We take pride in our work, which means we choose only high-quality materials for every installation, whether we’re putting in replacement windows or a new roof.

Marvin is a leading window manufacturer that we recommend, and we’ve written previously about some of the brand’s popular choices for Minnesota homes, from awning windows to the ever-popular casement style. One of the reasons we recommend Marvin is for the wide range of custom options available, allowing homeowners to match their new windows to their home and personal preferences.

Let’s take a look at some of the options to customize your replacement windows from Marvin!

Trim Options

Wood Finishes

Marvin offers multiple wood options for the interior finish of the windows. Thanks to the brand’s “proprietary multi-step, integrated conditioning and staining process,” the windows come ready to install and don’t require any finishing on-site.

There are two types of wood finishes you can choose from Marvin: paint or stain.

  • Painted Wood gives your interior trim a clear, stylish finish to complement your home. Choose between a dozen finishes, including Bare Pine and Designer Black.
  • A stained finish helps bring out the natural beauty of your window's interior trim. Choose from seven different stain options, including Honey and Cabernet.

Extruded Aluminum

Extruded aluminum is more durable than rolled-formed aluminum and excellent for weather that produces high winds, like thunderstorms and tornadoes. Severe weather in Minnesota is all too common, so installing sturdy window frames such as extruded aluminum will assure top-quality safety for when it hits.

High-Density Fiberglass

High-density fiberglass installs on the exterior part of your new windows. Fiberglass trim maintains shape during a freeze/thaw cycle, preventing cracks over time while providing sufficient insulation!

Pultruded Fiberglass

Pultruded fiberglass is a tried and true composite material made by Marvin windows two decades ago. Pultruded fiberglass works with the window pane, expanding and contracting alongside it to provide maximum insulation. This fiberglass type will withstand sharp drops and rises in temperature, keeping your interior properly regulated.

Glass Options

Dual Pane

Dual-pane is, obviously, twice as nice as a single pane! Two panes with Low E coatings are also insulated with argon gas, keeping the air in your home warm and comfortable. A dual-pane helps cut energy costs while allowing only the correct amount of natural light in during the day.

Triple Pane

A step up from dual-pane, triple-pane is also available with Marvin Windows! However, triple-pane doesn’t mean you need it over double-pan. It’s a good idea to consider the energy efficiency of the rest of the window and the rest of your house before you decide between dual and triple-pane.

Glass Coatings

Glass coatings are layers on your newly installed windows that help control the amount of light and heat that passes through. These glass coatings come in three different types:

  • Low E1: Primarily used in colder climates as it absorbs maximum solar heat gain.
  • Low E2: The most used type of glass coatings, suitable for almost any climate.
  • Low E3: Using multiple metallic layers to bounce solar heat away rather than attract it, this type is used in warmer climates.
