Marvin Ultimate Windows Reviews

The Marvin Ultimate window is a premium aluminum clad wood window that integrates great aesthetics with excellent design and craftsmanship. The Ultimate is by no means inexpensive, however it is one of the best wood clad windows on the market and comes with a whole slew of great options and features. The Ultimate can actually be ordered in the aluminum clad or in the all wood option - the all wood option requires quite a bit of maintenance/painting to preserve the quality of the exterior wood. Please note that the aluminum clad will cost more.

Marvin Ultimate windows have a real wood jambliner that looks really solid (the jambliner on the Integrity wood Ultrex is vinyl and takes away from the overall look in my opinion) and is just one of the great touches on this window. You can choose from 19 different exterior colors on the frame, along with lots of wood species options that include cherry, douglas pine, fir, mahony and white oak. In addition, there are a slew of options in terms of hardware and components that can match existing color palettes, styles and tastes.

The Ultimate should be at the top of most homeowner's list if they are interested in wood clad windows. Marvin has a very good reputation in the industry, probably one of the best and they offer great products and good customer service.

Marvin Ultimate Windows Cost

Wood window replacement costs generally run anywhere from $60 - $120 per square foot, fully installed. The Ultimate model should run approximately $90 - $110 per square foot fully installed. (This assumes a standard installation cost of $50 to $150 per opening.) Compare the cost of the Marvin Ultimate Series to Eagle windows prices and Andersen 400 series cost.

-- Window Itself: $80 to $100 per square foot --

Marvin Ultimate Warranty

The Marvin Ultimate window warranty states that the windows will be free from manufacturing defects in materials and workmanship for 10 years. Insulated glass is covered for 10 years, clear glass and stainless steel spacers carry a 20 year warranty, while non tempered glass carries a 10 year warranty. The cladding finish is warrantied for 20 years, specialty exterior finishes carry a 5 year warranty, as does interior finishes.

Consumers need to understand that wood windows will never carry the same warranty as vinyl windows because wood is an organic material.
