Ready to let the sun in? If you’re in the market for new windows, Glenbrook Building Supply, Inc carries two great window brands: Marvin and Andersen Windows & Doors. Both companies are headquartered in Minnesota and have each been in business for over 100 years, so they’re local businesses you can trust. We’ve gone into detail about each window collection to help you discover your desired window style.
Marvin Signature: Ultimate and Modern The Modern collection is all about simplicity and sleek lines. These large windows are perfect for someone who prioritizes natural light, and they really bring the outdoors inside. The Modern window frames are made from high-density fiberglass and are durable and energy efficient. The Ultimate collection has more variety in terms of shape. There are plenty of options to choose from, but Marvin doesn’t have a supply waiting to be bought. Rather, they make each window custom to your design requests. The Ultimate windows also come with Lift Lock hardware, which makes windows open, close, and lock easily.
Marvin: Elevate and Essential Elevate windows are stunning, but they’re also strong. Marvin describes the fiberglass as being “eight-times stronger than vinyl and three-times stronger than vinyl/wood composites. It resists fading, chalking, peeling and cracking.” So, if you’re concerned about durability, the Elevate windows are the solution for you. These styles are also warm and really make a statement. The Marvin Essential windows are leading in strength and durability—their fiberglass outlasts vinyl by 38%. This style is on the simpler side with clean lines and narrow profiles. So, if you’re not in the market for anything flashy or too sleek, the Essential windows are the perfect style. Visit the Marvin website to check out photos for every style: https://www.marvin.com/
Andersen Windows & Doors The window offerings at Andersen’s can be broken up into various categories including style, series, and material. Their website includes a design tool that allows you to design your ideal window, making the searching process much easier. Pictured below is an image from the “A-series,” which is Andersen’s best-performing and most energy-efficient product. If you aren’t sure about which series you’d prefer, start searching by style. When selecting the gliding window, for example, you’ll be brought to a page that shows various gliding windows and the series they belong to. Each window series has its own perks, like durability or low-maintenance, so be sure to take those features into account when researching windows. Whether you’re a contractor or a DIY-er, we carry the products to support your window replacement needs. Ready to remodel? Call Glenbrook Building Supply, Inc for an estimate or stop by our showroom.
