Marvin Ultimate Weatherstripping Color

Posted by Jimmy27 (My Page) on

My 70 Marvin Ultimate Casement windows arrived this week and 50% have been installed. They are the Bahama Brown color to match the existing exterior casing in a 1910 tudor. We arrived this week to inspect the work.

The problem is, they have BEIGE weatherstripping. It looks terrible with a light-colored rectangle around each window.

Question: Are these windows available with a dark or black weatherstripping?

If they are available, shouldn't the rep have known this and advised us of this?
What recourse do we have at this time?

Can they be replaced at this point? Can they be darkened in any way?

Thank you.

Considering that you should have a full screen going on the exterior, it shouldn't be noticeable. The beige matches more interior stain finishes better and that is why they choose that color.

RE: Marvin Ultimate Weatherstripping Color

They are all casements, so the screens are on the inside of the windows.

RE: Marvin Ultimate Weatherstripping Color

I am 99% Marvin does make a bronze or dark brown colored weatherstrip. You would have to purchase the product and pay to have it installed at this point because of the fact that the original order was more than likely placed with the beige as a default choice. The windows from what I can remember can be ordered with the different color weatherstrip but it must be selected on order entry in the Marvin computer program.

Millworkman is 100% correct. Beige is the default weatherstrip. Black is an option. The question should have been asked or was merely passed over. It can be replaced in the field.

Thank you, I will look into it further with the rep.
