Just wondering why you like Marvin (vs. say Anderson)?

There are numerous reasons, but we really just enjoy working with good quality products which come in at a reasonable costs for our clients. We are a very fastidious design firm when it comes to quality detailing and Marvin, more than any other manufacturer we have seen have been able to improve their products over time. We know they aren't making changes just at our suggestions, but many of the criticisms we have had have been addressed over the years. These range from corner details, lock rail thicknesses, how easy the units are able to be cleaned from the inside, size availability (they have inexpensive custom sizes down to the 64th of an inch), hardware options, screens and cladding colors and many more small details which all add up to a high quality product.

The red cedar shingles were pre-primed at the factory in semi-transparent Cabot Beechwood Gray. Then a single coat of semi-transparent Cabot Pepperwood was applied in the field after installation.
Hope that helps!
