In terms of aesthetics, most homeowners appreciate the appearance of wood windows over most other materials. However, wood quickly falls out of favor once homeowners learn that wood windows are susceptible to dry rot, warping, and insect infestation. Even more frustrating is the fact that they must be routinely stained and caulked to prevent these issues. EverWood® Engineered Finish for Marvin Infinity® windows provides the optimum solution for homeowners that crave the look of real wood, but lack the time, financial commitment, don’t want to deal with the frustration of wood window maintenance. Here’s why you should consider EverWood® finish.
What Is EverWood® Window Finishing?
Exclusive to the Infinity® windows, this patented wood grain finish imitates the beauty of actual wood. However, it varies from wood in the fact that it does not need frequent painting and staining. This is one of the primary reasons homeowners prefer this fiberglass window replacement compared to lumber.
Window Finishing Color Selections:
Homeowners that select EverWood® engineered wood windows are pleased to learn that they aren’t stuck with a preordained color. Alternatively, they arrive to the contractor with a raw wood finish. This affords the homeowner and the contractor to work together to create the perfect custom window color shade that is an exact match to the home’s preexisting trim, cabinetry, furniture and flooring. This characteristic is particularly appealing for owners of historic homes wanting to update their home’s energy efficient properties, while being respectful of its defining attributes.
Advantages Of Engineered Wood Windows:
Moisture is detrimental to wood windows. However, EverWood® wood finishing is immune to the consequences of condensation and water build-up. This offers homeowners the ultimate peace of mind when choosing fiberglass windows over wood because there is no worry of warping, blemishing, swelling, and fading. Because EverWood® is manufactured rather than harvested, it is resistant to bacterial growth, mold, and mildew. The same does not hold true for wood windows.
Lifespan of Windows with Engineered Everwood® Finish
Another area EverWood® outshines wood is its lifespan. The EverWood® material is perpetually fastened to the fiberglass substrate. That adherence is backed by Infinity®’s lifetime limited warranty. Infinity® Windows are comprised of Ultrex®, which is a fiberglass that has a patented acrylic finish. This ensures long-term durability and performance which helps improve window lifespan. With Ultrex® used on the window’s exterior and EverWood® on the interior, Infinity® engineered wood windows truly are built to be long-lasting.
