Meet your design vision with natural, stained or painted wood. With Marvin factory-applied interior finishes, you can order beautifully finished windows and doors that are ready to install the day they arrive to save valuable time on the job site.
Choose from a selection of high-quality standard wood options, including Pine, Cherry, Douglas Fir, Mahogany, White Oak and Vertical Grain Douglas Fir. If your project requires a one-of-a-kind look, we offer unique species like Black Walnut.Selected:
*Wood is a product of nature and will vary in color, texture and grain. Wood options shown are to demonstrate the approximate look of each species only, and stain samples are shown on Pine. Photos are not intended to reflect a product's interior or exterior profile.
When compared to painting or staining on the job site, factory-stained finishes offer consistent quality and performance resulting from our expertise with wood as a material and years of perfecting our staining process.
Every piece of wood receives even coats of conditioning and stain, two coats of clear finish, and is sanded and baked twice in an oven before your window or door is built to create a consistent, durable and high-quality finish that brings out the natural beauty, texture, and grain of the wood. Our stained wood products meet industry standards and arrive ready to install.Selected:
*Stain and clear coat is available on all offered interior wood species.

We offer variations to help meet climate and code requirements across the country, described in more detail on our glass page.

When fresh air flow is a priority, multiple screen options are available to keep insects and debris at bay. A standard screen with an aluminum surround is available in multiple finishes, and an optional wood screen that can be painted or stained to match is available on select all-wood windows.Selected:
Screens come standard with Marvin Bright View™ mesh – a fiberglass screen mesh that provides improved airflow and more natural light while keeping insects out. Bright View repels water and resists dirt and grime for a sharp, vivid view.
A variety of mesh colors and materials are available to achieve the look your project needs.Selected:
The look of multiple, individual panes of glass in a window sash is popular in a wide range of architectural styles – from historic replications to modern farmhouses. Simulated divided lites, available in a number of different styles, mimic the look of individual panes of glass in a window sash without sacrificing the energy efficiency of a single pane of glass. For true historical accuracy, authentic divided lites utilize individual glass panes, and are available as a custom order on select all-wood windows.
Grilles are permanently installed between the glass panes for a low-maintenance, smooth exterior and easy cleaning. Choose from 13 exterior colors and 4 interior colors.
Simulated Divided Lite (SDL)
An energy-efficient way to create the look of authentic divided lites, SDL bars are permanently adhered to both sides of the glass and are available with or without a spacer bar installed between the glass to create even more depth that resembles an ADL.
Simulated Divided Lite with Spacer Bar (SDLS)
Paired with SDL bars on the exterior of the glass, a spacer bar is installed between the glass, creating an even closer match to the Authentic Divided Lite look.
