Get the Quality Finish You Want with Factory-Applied Stains from Marvin Windows and Doors

Staining any windows yourself can be messy and tedious, and this is why Marvin windows came up with the good idea to make a line that comes with factory-applied stain. They have a wide selection of high quality, pre-stained clad wood doors and windows. This staining process is done before the windows are even put together. Each of the pieces is sanded down, conditioned to perfection, stained, and then cured in an oven. The process is then repeated so that the finish looks its best and will look even better in your home.

“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 currently offers six different options for the stain – Espresso, Leather, Wheat, Honey, Cabernet, and Hazelnut. They also give a wide range of woods to choose from as well – Cherry, Pine, Douglas Fir, Vertical Grain Douglas Fir, White Oak, and Mahogany. You can build and preview the finishing touches on the new app that they have for the iPod, iPad, and iPhone; it is called Marvin Finishes.

All Marvin’s products are made with the environment in mind, since their practices are green. Their products do not contain any volatile hazardous air pollution, otherwise known as VHAP. The acrylic enamel is friendly to the environment. The windows also meet all of the WDMA TM-14-09 standards. These standards have all been tested for exposure, chemical resistance, impact, freeze and thaw cycling, and film adhesion.

“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.”
