Time to Transform Your Minneapolis Ranch Home? Get Some Inspiration from this Marvin Windows & Doors Project

As experts in energy-efficient replacement windows and and doors for older and historic homes, we’re big fans of using them to update an aging home. We’ve been the contractor on a number of these home transformations around the Twin Cities, and it’s amazing what new windows and doors can do for the appearance of a home.

But sometimes what is called for is a little more imagination and a designer and contractor who can look outside the box, so to speak, and envision something completely new and fresh.  As a Marvin Authorized Replacement Contractor, we follow their design blog for inspiration and tips we can pass along to our prospective customers.  One reason is that Marvin is a known innovator in the window and door industry.  And the second reason is we just love their products.  They have so many options to choose from, and owners of older homes will love their windows that have beautiful wood on the inside but are clad on the exterior with maintenance-free, durable materials.

This Old House recently turned to Marvin as a door and window supplier on a project that completely transformed a 1949 one-story ranch house into a two-story Dutch colonial.  Check out the before and after photos shown here (courtesy of ‘Inspired by Marvin).

Now, you may not be ready for a remodeling project on a scale this large, but you just might find some inspiration for updating your older home and giving it a fresh, new look with Marvin windows and doors.  You can read more about it on their website by clicking here.

Homeowners all over the Twin Cities metro are turning to Minnesota-made Marvin products to add beauty and energy efficiency to their older homes.  To find out more about what we may be able to do for you and your home, contact us today for a free, no-obligation consultation.
