Our builder specified Marvin windows for our new house. I haven't had any dealings
with this brand, so I'm curious about your experiences.
The climate they'll be installed in is southern ohio.
Thanks in advance

Just curious, did they rate Coradco windows? In the mid 70's, a
carpenter and I had a conversation and he said he thought they were as
good as Pella or Andersen but considerable less expensive. From this
conversation, I got the impression they were like the new kid on the
block and now I don't even know if they exist or how they compare in
quality or price to Andersen or Pella.
Here in Central KY they are used in the same class of home as Pella. They
may outsell Anderson here. If you are using crank windows and want inside
mount blinds spec their folding handle. It really works as advertised.
Our architect recommended Kolbe & Kolbe windows. We bought the aluminum
clad variety. The are nice, well built, high end windows. When we bought
them, 5 years ago, they were significantly cheaper than Anderson. These
windows have performed wonderfully for us. Definitely a good product.

The difference between Marvin and many of the others is Marvin will custom
make your windows to your exact sizes. Anderson only sells windows in stock
sizes. This isn't usually an issue with new houses, but is a big issue when
buying replacement windows for an old house.
