In both strong markets and down cycles, Marvin Windows and Doors has consistently introduced products that help pro builders excite clients with new designs and functionality. This trend continues with the popular Ultimate Replacement Casement, and the recently introduced French Ultimate Casement Replacement, now available at Truitt & White.
"Marvin's replacement product lines have been an ideal solution for the jobs where I need to replace existing windows and the Ultimate Replacement Casement has been a great addition to that line-up," said Bay Area builder Jim Cooper. "The ease of installation and functionality are cutting edge, but there are other benefits as well. One of my clients was extremely sound sensitive, and the Ultimate Casement Replacement satisfied his very strict requirements. Some models have the features that qualify for the tax credits, which definitely interests clients."
The Ultimate Replacement Casement, which includes Push-Out models, easily installs as a frame-in-frame insert into virtually any existing window opening. Because of its innovative replacement features, there's no need to remove the entire existing window unit, only the sash is replaced, which helps eliminate the need to repair or replace siding and trim. With inward-rotating hardware, the product’s unique wash mode allows for simple cleaning of the window exterior from within the home.
When combined with qualifying glass options, many of the Ultimate Replacement Casement models meet the criteria for the federal tax credits (based on 30 percent of the product cost, capped at $1500).
New Products: The Ultimate Push-Out French Replacement Casement and Retractable Screen
The new Ultimate Push-Out French Casement, which also qualifies for the tax credits based on energy efficiency, is poised to become a very popular option in the Bay Area.
"The Ultimate Push-Out French Casement is going to be a fantastic product for our market," said Marvin product specialist Victor Vandenburg. "It's perfectly designed as a frame-in-frame window replacement solution. Push-out casements are very common in our region's older homes, so we can provide a traditional alternative – along with superior performance – to the standard crank-out models."
Also new from Marvin is the Retractable Screen, an easily installed device that when integrated in the window becomes virtually undetectable. The new Retractable Screen, which features smooth side-to-side functionality, is now compatible with the Ultimate Replacement Casement collection.
