An internal window survey was conducted by the United Home Experts team. We provide siding, roofing, window, and door replacement services throughout eastern New England. Unbiased opinions were retrieved based on our individual experience using the products. The ratings provided are opinion based and not the result of lab testing or product specification examination.


Choosing the right new or replacement windows for a home can be a daunting task.  Many homeowners are unfamiliar with all the choices available and are afraid that some fast-talking salesman, more concerned with commissions than with the homeowner’s needs, will sell the homeowner something that is good for the salesman but not necessarily right for the homeowner.

While this fear is completely understandable it should not deter the homeowner from making an informed decision.

Wood and Aluminum Clad vs Fiberglassall-ultrex-image

The first decision that a homeowner must make is whether the new or replacement window is framed just with wood, or framed in fiberglass or wood clad with aluminum.  The answer, especially here in the harsh New England climate, is fiberglass or wood clad with aluminum,  hands down.  The reason is simple: both fiberglass and aluminum-clad wood last longer and resist water, algae and insect damage far better than wood alone.  So choosing either aluminum-clad wood windows by Marvin Windows or choosing Integrity from Marvin for its fiberglass frame is a wise decision.

The Bottom Line Differencewood-ultrex-image2

Marvin Windows and Integrity by Marvin are both top-of-the-line choices for replacement or new windows, and both are ultimately manufactured by the same company to the same high standards.  The difference is that Marvin’s top-grade windows are almost infinitely customizable, while Integrity by Marvin is more cost-effective.  If a homeowner has historic windows in sizes other than current standards, then Marvin’s customizable windows is the company to see.  They can create frames to fit almost any opening and they will even cut glass into unique patterns to accommodate virtually any homeowner design.  All of their hardware is solid metal.

Marvin’s Integrity division strives to provide new and replacement windows to fit most modern standard-size window openings.  Their quality is unsurpassed.  Integrity windows are framed in almost care-free vinyl, which comes in a variety of colors and patterns.  Wood trim is available both inside and out.

Value Second to None

Replacing windows can be costly.  Both of the Marvin divisions recognize this fact and offer a wide range of discounts and coupons to help homeowners get the best window replacements available at a price that is affordable.  Anyone interested in high-quality, beautiful and affordable windows can simply visit a Marvin website or talk to the expert window installers at United Home Experts for the best deals and coupons on the best windows for the harsh conditions here in the Northeast.

It is really impossible for a homeowner to make a mistake when buying either brand.   Both offer unsurpassed quality in both materials as well as skilled workmanship.  Which grade of Marvin product is right for any individual can best be determined by asking the window experts at United Home Experts.   They are truly committed to helping their customers choose the window options that are best for their needs.  They also provide free window quotes with no pressure whatsoever  – and isn’t that refreshing?
