Many homes built with Marvin windows have been honored with recognition such as as LEED Platinum, LEED Gold and net-zero-energy designations. And Marvin has more windows that have earned ENERGYSTAR’s “Most Efficient” designation than any other manufacturer. You can build the home of your dreams while living up to your highest goals for sustainability and efficiency.
