The importance of durable windows made specifically for coastal areas cannot be understated. In coastal regions where hurricanes are a threat, windows must be able to resist high winds and flying debris. Marvin windows and doors offer coastal solutions to address the challenges facing builders, contractors, architects and homeowners in these zones.
You know first-hand the conditions you face on projects in these markets. The windows and doors you choose is critical. The wind, rain, moisture, salt and sun that comprise these harsh coastal conditions are no match from Marvin StormPlus windows and doors.
Marvin’s Coastal Warranty
Marvin is committed to supplying products of the highest quality and value. Marvin’s made-to-order manufacturing philosophy is one example of their commitment and their warranty is another.
All windows and doors made by Marvin are covered by a limited warranty against manufacturing defects that result in chalk or fade for 20 years from the purchase date.
Marvin’s 70% PVDF-finished aluminum cladding, stainless steel hardware, hardware with physical vapor deposition (“PVD”), and other specifically designated “coastal” hardware finishes (collectively “Coastal Hardware”) are warranted to be free from manufacturing defects that result in abnormal corrosion or deterioration of the exterior cladding or finish for a period of 10 years from the original date of purchase.
Non-Coastal Hardware and anodized or other specialty finishes are not recommended, and are not warranted in coastal environments..
Integrity weathers the storm
Much of the damage in severe storms occurs when windows or doors fail. If the home’s exterior seal is breached, wind and water can enter leading to water damage and structural damage or even the roof lifting off.
Integrity’s IZ products have laminated glass to help keep the exterior seal intact. In addition to the special laminate used for IZ3 products, Integrity’s glass is energy efficient, so choosing Integrity Windows and Doors delivers both safety and energy efficiency. And since Ultrex is naturally so durable, a Wood-Ultrex IZ3 window looks just like any other Integrity window, with no visible reinforcements or clips to distract from its beauty. Optional corrosion-resistant hardware ensures that Integrity’s coastal hardware fights off rust even with constant exposure to salt, sun and sand.
