Our experts will walk you through energy efficient glass options to find the right selection for your home and the best windows for your climate. Choose from four glass coatings, plus decorative glass options, and specialty glass choices.
Primarily used in colder climates, Low E1 allows more heat in to warm a room while blocking heat loss.
Low E2 offers year-round performance in moderate climates. It will help retain heat in your home during the winter and keep heat out during the summer.
Low E3 rejects solar heat while letting light in, resulting in increased performance in climates with intense sun exposure.
Low E3/ERS provides maximum efficiency year-round in all conditions.
Selected: Low E1
Decorative glass options are ideal for spaces like bathrooms to balance natural light and privacy.
We offer specialty glass to best suit the needs of your home. You can choose tempered glass, laminated glass, and STC/OITC glass for specific windows and rooms.
Tempered glass increases glass strength to help prevent breakage. Tempered glass has more strength than regular glass because it’s made when float glass panels get heated and cooled in a controlled environment. The increased strength helps prevent it from breaking, and when it does break, it shatters into dull, pebble-like pieces. Tempered glass is ideal for windows close to the floor or located in high-traffic areas.
Even more durable than tempered glass, laminated glass is often referred to as impact resistant or safety glass due to its vinyl inter layer that tends to remain in place when shattered.
Sound Transmission Class and Outdoor-Indoor Transmission Class glass has increased pane thickness on the room side and works in areas where exterior noise is a concern.
We offer various divided lite patterns so you can replicate the look of your original windows and doors. Or, add new architectural interest to your home. Choose from Simulated Divided Lites for classic appeal or Grilles-Between-the Glass for easy cleaning.
Patterns include: Standard Rectangular, Rectangular 1-High, Standard Rectangle Cottage 1-High, Prairie 6-Lite, and Prairie 9-Lite.
Selected: Grilles Between the Glass
Our hidden tilt latch provides an uninterrupted view and you can choose from nine different colors for your window’s hardware.
Selected: Stone White
We have two durable aluminum-surround screen options that provide airflow while keeping insects out. Our standard Marvin Bright View™ fiberglass mesh has a clear view, sheds water, and resists dirt. Upgrade to our Hi-Transparency mesh screen for crisper views without losing any of our standard screen benefits. Color match your screen frames to the window for a seamless look.
Selected: Bright View Screen

Frequently Asked Questions
What are the advantages of double hung windows?
A double hung window allows you to open the upper sash to allow warm air to escape. You can have the lower sash open at the same time to allow cool air to enter a room.
How do you open double hung windows?
Double hung windows have a latch on the check rail that needs to be unlocked before you can slide the lower and/or upper sash up and down.
Which windows are most energy efficient?
Ultrex fiberglass windows and doors have far less thermal conductivity than aluminum windows to help make them energy efficient. Both windows are double paned with an inert gas fill to increase energy efficiency. Single hung windows only have one moving sash, which leads people to consider them more energy efficient.
Marvin Replacement windows and patio doors come with a limited lifetime warranty as well as a 5-year installation warranty to provide additional peace of mind.
