Marvin Windows helps churches with durable, efficient renovations


An article from Worship Facilities talked about architectural and building trends for churches throughout the country. When building these facilities, church leaders are seeking durability, aesthetics, low maintenance and efficiency. Additionally, they are trading in the traditional white walls and exposed brick for bold colors and stained concrete.

Christine Marvin provided more insight into the modern look for churches. “We’ve found that the classic beauty of wood will serve almost any worship facility well. Older churches often want wood on the interior and exterior for a historic look,” she says. “However, the durability and ease of extruded aluminum cladding makes it an attractive option for older churches, as well.”

St. Mary’s Church in Potsdam, N.Y., one of our flagship case studies, is discussed in the article and serves as a great example of how renovating an old facility can give it new life. Marvin Windows and Doors helped the Catholic church, built in 1887, bring its rich history back to life after more than a century of weathering. Marvin used state-of-the-art technology to precisely measure and recreate 15 stained glass windows to fit the fixed stone openings.
