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 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:
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:

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.

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)
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 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.
