a remodel or replacement project is a tedious and messy chore. Now Marvin
Windows and Doors
offers a range of factory-applied stain finishes on its clad wood windows
and doors. These new stains join Marvin’s clear coat and painted interior to
round out the company’s full range of high-quality interior finish options. 

Marvin’s meticulous
factory stain finish involves a multi-step process that takes place before the
window or door is assembled. Each individual piece of wood is sanded,
conditioned, stained and oven-cured. Then the process is repeated to provide an
ideal finish.

“We’re doing more than
just saving builders or homeowners the time and hassle of staining windows or
doors on their own,” said Christine Marvin, director of marketing for Marvin
Windows and Doors. “These factory-applied stains give the products an unmatched
richness and depth that enhance the beauty of the warm wood interiors.”

Marvin offers six stain options — Honey, Wheat,
Hazelnut, Cabernet, Espresso and Leather — that can be applied to any of
Marvin’s six wood species: Pine, White Oak, Cherry, Douglas Fir, Mahogany and
Vertical Grain Douglas Fir. All of these options are included in Marvin’s
newest iPad and iPhone app, Marvin
Finishes
. This app lets builders and homeowners “build”
and preview Marvin products with any of these wood species and finish options
applied.

Marvin Windows and Doors
is fully committed to protecting our environment and implementing green practices. That includes reusing
waste water, destroying 95 per cent of volatile organic compounds and making
products that contain no volatile hazardous air pollution. We use a water-borne
acrylic enamel that is more environmentally friendly than solvent-borne
materials. Marvin’s stain finishes — as well as its clear-coat finish — meet
the WDMA’s TM-14-09 standard for the performance and appearance of
factory-applied finishes. WDMA TM-14-09 tests for film adhesion, impact, freeze-thaw
cycling, chemical resistance and exposures testing.

“Our proprietary
finishing process is the best way to create a consistent and durable finish
that brings out the natural beauty, texture and grain of the wood,” Marvin
said. “Factory-finished windows and doors from Marvin arrive ready to install,
saving time and trouble on the job site and ensuring a consistent, quality look
and feel.”
