When it comes to home window replacement, there are a few popular misconceptions that many homeowners have. First, is that new house windows cannot be installed in the winter. Winter can be a great time to have new windows installed because contractors can often get to projects quicker due to lessened demand. In addition, a winter home improvement project can often assist the customer in avoiding spring manufacturer price increases.
A second misconception about home window replacement is that all of a home’s windows must be replaced at the same time. While in some cases this can make sense, it is not a requirement. In our client Kevin’s case, only three windows in his home needed replacement. This was due to damage by straight-line winds.
Part of the reason Kevin chose to partner with Lindus Construction for his winter home window replacement project is that he appreciated our commitment to quality. He understood that our experienced craftsmen would do their due diligence to protect his home’s siding during the project. In the winter months, extra care must be taken to not damage vinyl siding, which can become brittle. Ultimately, Kevin opted for the installation of Infinity® from Marvin windows in his home’s master bedroom and bathroom. Here’s why they proved to be the perfect fit.
Durability: The large size of Kevin’s bathroom and bedroom windows made it necessary to pick a window that would be able to withstand the extreme temperatures fluctuations of Western Wisconsin. Infinity® from Marvin windows are made of Ultrex® which has been proven to be eight times as strong as vinyl. An issue with builder grade vinyl windows is that they are prone to warping over time. This can make it difficult to open and close. However, the Ultrex® material used by Infinity® from Marvin windows is specially manufactured to withstand swelling, sticking, and warping. This makes them an ideal window for Western Wisconsin.
Aesthetics: Infinity® from Marvin Windows are manufactured with a fade-resistant finish, allowing them to stand the test of time. In addition, they are offered in an array of color options to complement any architectural style. In addition, their narrow frames allow more natural light and expanded outdoor views.

Energy Efficiency: With utility prices on the rise, Ken found it crucial to opt for new windows that were energy efficient. A perk of Infinity® from Marvin Windows is that they’re 5000 times less thermally conductive than aluminum windows. Instead, their insulation ratings are similar to those of wood house windows. In addition, they’re manufactured in Warroad, MN by a family-owned business that understands the extreme temperatures that cycle throughout the Midwest on an annual basis.
