New built; Marvin vs Jeld-wen Custom

jentrexJuly 28, 2012

I am building a home and priced out Marvin (top line, not Integrity) and Jeld-Wen Custom, majority dbl hung. I am going with the dark brown alum clad exterior, wood primed interior. The home is a craftsman style and the windows will have the simulated divided lite with spacer bar on the upper portion of the dbl hung glass. Both prices came in very close. I was set on the Marvin, however, Home Depot is having a 15% off on Jeld-Wen.

My question is which window, in your opinion, is better? If they are both the same, then choosing Marvin will mean I am choosing the dealer.

Thanks

If you do any research at all, you will quickly discover that Marvin is better. Jeld-Wen would be a huge mistake. They do NOT have a very good reputation on any front.

Could not have said it any better, 15% will not amount to much in the long run and custom Jeldwen windows and HD are disaster in the making.

Thank you for your replies. My opinion was the Marvin window was the better product also. Just wanted some validation. They are a beautiful window.
