Pros and Cons of Marvin Windows

Mar 01, 2021

Are Marvin windows the right choice for your Kansas City home?

At Johnson County Siding & Window Co., some of our most highly regarded replacement windows are from Marvin windows. Their Integrity series uses ultrex fiberglass, made with the same material that’s used in bridge construction. If you’re looking for a combination of style and durability, Marvin is a clear recommendation. But consider carefully before you choose Marvin windows for your home. What are the pros and cons, and at the end of the day, are the pros worth the cons?

Let’s take a look.

Marvin Windows Pros

The main benefit of Marvin windows is their unbeatable durability. Exposed to the elements and extremes of each season, many home exteriors tend to swell and warp, which can wear down the quality of the window. Made with ultrex fiberglass, Marvin windows expand at approximately the same rate as glass and remain stable, no matter what the weather throws at them. They resist chalking, cracking, fading and peeling, and of course rot, isn’t even an option. Thus, you’ll never have to repaint Marvin windows once they’re installed. You can, however, if you choose to.

With remarkable durability comes excellent energy efficiency. These windows keep their air seal for longer than any other type of window, which means during winter and summer, your home stays comfortable and free of drafts. When your home’s HVAC system doesn’t have to overcompensate to make up for heat loss or air leakage, your energy bills will go down. And when your windows are energy efficient, you can count on them to add value to your home, should you choose to sell.

Finally, consider style. Marvin windows come in all the popular window styles and a variety of classy exterior finishes. You can opt for grilles between the glass or simply enjoy open, unobstructed views. Fiberglass has a smooth look that can suit both modern and classic styles, while lasting much longer than vinyl.

Marvin Windows Cons

With so many pros to consider, there’s only one con to Marvin Windows, but it’s a major consideration for many homeowners: Cost. Marvin windows are more expensive than vinyl windows and many other windows on the market, because of their quality and because fiberglass is a more expensive material. However, in the long-term, it’s an investment that’s likely to pay off. You can pay less for a window of lower quality, only to have to replace it in a few years, but many find it worthwhile to pay the initial cost of Marvin windows and enjoy their durability for years to come. With the energy efficiency and boosted home value, the cost is easily justified. You can also opt for financing to make Marvin windows fit more within your budget.

We think the pros easily overwhelm the one con. Interested in learning more about Marvin windows and what they can do for your home? Contact Johnson County Siding & Window Co. today.
