Form or Function: What’s Most Important When Choosing Doors & Windows for Your Livonia Home?

livonia mi window and door contractorWhether you’re building a new home or remodeling your existing Livonia-area home, the choices you make about the doors and windows you install are significant ones. When you make your decision about which doors and windows to use will that decision be influenced more by how those items look or by how they perform? What’s more important: Form or function when it comes to choosing?

That’s not a trick question—but it is a bit of a tricky one. Your doors and windows are something you’ll see every day. In today’s homes (with the emphasis on open floor plans and natural light), they are definitely part of the design and have a significant impact on the way your home looks and feels. By the same token, your windows and doors are something you use frequently. It’s important that they operate easily.

Your doors and windows also perform another function: They insulate your home. Nobody wants to sacrifice comfort (heating and cooling) just to have a better view. That means these fixtures not only need to look great and operate flawlessly, but they also need to be energy-efficient.

So that “short answer” to the question about form versus function is that your doors and windows need to do both—and they have to do it efficiently. And that’s what makes Marvin Windows and Doors a great choice for new or replacement doors and windows for your Livonia home.

Marvin pays close attention to every detail. That includes developing their own designs for locking mechanisms and high-performance, low profile door thresholds. That means you end up with fixtures that that perform flawlessly and also allow you to take advantage of the space in your home.

Each door and window is also made to order, one at a time. With the added benefit of custom clad and stain colors, divided lite options, and high-quality wood species to choose from, you can personalize your windows and doors to perfectly fit the design of your home. In addition to craftsman-quality construction and the industry’s most extensive selection of shapes, styles, sizes and options, your Marvin doors and windows take advantage of the latest energy-efficient technology.
