    Wood Options

    Selected: 
    Vertical Grain Douglas Fir
    Honduran Mahogany

    *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

    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.


    All interior surfaces are standard bare wood. Opt for prime for ease of applying a top coat in the field. For Clad doors, choose White or Designer Black interior finishes.


    Wood exterior Ultimate Doors offer Painted White interior finish except on the
    Multi-slide Doors.

    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.

  • Interior Glazing Profile

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

    Selected: 
    Square
    Ogee
  • Hardware

Finishes in Oil Rubbed Bronze and Satin Nickel are available with a Physical Vapor Deposition (PVD) finish, meaning the hardware has undergone a process that adds a layer of toughness to resist fading and discoloration by direct sunlight, humidity, and most other environmental factors, even in coastal areas.

  • Divided Lites

    The look of multiple, individual panes of glass in a door panel is popular in a wide range of architectural styles–from historic replications to modern farmhouses. For those who seek historical accuracy, authentic divided lites utilize individual glass panes. 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.

    Authentic Divided Lite (ADL)

    Authentic Divided Lite (ADL)

    Separate pieces of glass are glazed between muntin bars – the way windows have been made since the beginning but with Marvin's updated design to increase energy efficiency.

    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.
