  • Interior Finish

    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.

    Wood Options

    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: 
    Black Walnut
    Cherry
    Mixed Grain Douglas Fir
    Honduran Mahogany
    Pine
    Vertical Grain Douglas Fir
    White Oak

    *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.


    Stained Wood

    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: 
    Cabernet
    Clear Coat
    Espresso
    Hazelnut
    Honey
    Leather
    Wheat

    *Stain and clear coat is available on all offered interior wood species.


    Painted Wood

    Painting on the job site or scheduling off-site finishing is an extra step that takes time and coordination. Choose our primed white or white painted interior finish option on any Marvin pine windows and doors with a wood exterior, or an additional designer black paint option for products with an aluminum clad exterior. Your windows and doors will arrive factory-painted and ready to install.

     

    You can count on consistency with our process, as every piece of wood receives a coat of prime and is sanded before being painted. The paint is baked twice in an oven before your window or door is built to create a consistent, durable and high-quality painted finish that performs to the industry standard.

    Selected: 
    Designer Black**
    Primed White
    White

    *Finish samples are approximate and colors on screen can vary. Visit your local dealer to see actual color samples.

    **Black only available on clad.

  • Sticking Options

    The interior edge detail where glazing meets wood is called sticking, sometimes referenced as bead. Ogee and Ovolo sticking offer a more traditional profile, and square sticking can be specified for a clean, crisp, more contemporary look.

    Selected: 
    Square

    *Not all sticking styles are available on every product. Ask your window and door dealer for specifics. Square sticking shown here on a casement window.

    Energy Efficiency

    Glass is an important aspect for managing the energy efficiency of your home. Our standard glazing is dual pane: two panes of glass with Low E coatings and argon insulating gas. We offer variations to help meet climate and code requirements across the country, described in more detail on our glass page.


    Specialty Glass Options

    Our specialty glass options include glass for unique project needs like sound management (STC/OITC), high altitudes, Sea Turtle Conservation Codes and California fire zones. We also offer laminated glass in products designed specifically for hurricane zones.

  • Divided Lites

    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-between-the-Glass (GBGs)

    Grilles-between-the-Glass (GBGs)

    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)

    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)

    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.


    Patterns

    Marvin’s custom capabilities allow us to create almost any divided lite pattern you can dream up, with combinations of widths, unique profiles, rectangular or radius cuts and more. Choose from an existing lite cut, specify custom divided lites according to a new design or ask our design professionals to assist in creating a pattern for your needs.
