Built in 1940, Jim’s Richfield, MN home’s unique façade offered tremendous curb appeal. The house had many charming features that had kept Jim living there for three decades. However, over the years, the condition of the home’s original windows had begun to deteriorate. Even more frustrating was the fact that open and closing many of the windows had become a near impossible task.
An avid listener of our weekly call-in radio show on WCCO Radio, Jim had a deep belief that our craftsmen were the right people to install his new house windows. Wanting the very best windows for his home, he opted for double hung Infinity® From Marvin Windows.
Pros of Double Hung Windows: There are many aspects to appreciate about double hung windows. They offer lots of ventilation because either the top or bottom panel of the window can be opened to allow breezes to flow indoors. Cleaning them is a breeze because the windows tilt inward so that exterior glass panes can be cleaned from inside the home.
Ultrex® Fiberglass: Infinity® From Marvin windows are made from Ultrex® fiberglass. This proprietary material is much stronger than vinyl and wood composites. Ultrex® can bend and flex, making it ideal for the rampant Minnesota temperature changes. Without this capability, the windows can be prone to warping, seal failure, drafts, and cracking. The consistency of Ultrex® allows Infintiy® From Marvin Windows to be produced with narrower frames which allows more natural light to enter Jim’s home.
Energy Efficient: Infinity® From Marvin Windows are energy efficient. This alleviates the concern of window ice-up and condensation. In addition, they are manufactured with argon gas insulation which assists in curtailing heat transfer through the window.
Maintenance-Free: A positive aspect about Infinity® From Marvin Windows is that emulate the beauty of wood windows. However, they do not require staining, painting, or sealing to keep them looking their best. The finish on the windows is a bonded inline acrylic finish which is significantly stronger than the finish used on builder grade windows. Jim can rest easy knowing that the finish on his new house windows will hold up to denting, scratching, and discoloration.
