Marvin Ultimate double hung are a huge disappointment. see pics
Our new construction home has Marvin ultimate double hung windows, half of which have already had their sashes replaced due to terrible craftsmanship or cracks. We are so disappointed as the cost of these windows was not small and we really splurged to get what we thought was the best. Anyway, we are still awaiting replacement of many of the sashes, but did a walk around the exterior of the house and found even more problems. The joinings are not even or flush on the windows or the patio doors, the area where the mullions meet the sash frame are inconsistent and uneven, in some places they have huge gaps. I'm including a link that has three photos of exterior images of these windows that pretty much typify what they look like from the outside. These issues are identical on the inside and we're really unhappy. Our current house has standard Pella windows that look a million times better. Please comment on the images and let me know if you've seen better from Marvin or if you think we should expect better for $60,000 worth of windows. thanks so much.
