Further considerations include geography, historical conditions, and necessary ease-of-use. If you live by the coast or in another locale prone to extreme weather conditions, material strength and durability can greatly impact your home’s performance safety. Historic replication might also come into play. Luckily, Marvin’s extruded aluminum exterior cladding can be customized to match any historic profile. Finally, where the window is placed can greatly impact ease-of-use and should be taken into consideration. For example, when a window is placed over a sink, replace a double-hung window with a casement designed to mimic the look of a traditional double-hung window without hindering accessibility.
