It’s been said that a chain is only as strong as its weakest link. When it comes to new or replacement windows for your Ann Arbor-area home, your windows are only as good as the materials that go into making them. Intergrity windows from Marvin are made with Ultrex® fiberglass that offers superior stability and strength along with outstanding beauty.
What do we mean by “superior?” Ultrex has been proven to be 8 times stronger than vinyl. That gives them a 38 percent longer useful life expectancy than conventional vinyl windows.
These windows will stand up to the rain, wind, heat, and anything else the Ann Arbor weather can throw at them. They will continue to look great—and perfom well long after vinyl windows look weathered and stop functioning the way they should.
There are times when flexibility is a good thing, but not when it comes to your windows. Integrity windows with Ultrex fiberglass housing has an extremely low rate of expansion—8 times less in fact. Vinyl housing can distort when temperatures fluctuate widely like they do here in the Ann Arbor area in both winter and summer. That won’t happen with Ultrex windows.
And when it comes to preserving the beautfy of your newly installed windows, Ultrex-clad windows won’t scratch, ding, or mar as easily as vinyl windows. That means you get years of great-looking, high performance from your new windows—maintenance free!
Not only can you feel good about the performance you’ll get from these windows, but you can also feel good about their minimum impact on the environment. Ultrex is made from silica sand—a safe and renewable natural resources. On top of that, the glass used in these windows contains between 15 to 33 percent recycled content. And, Integrity products offer ENERGY STAR qualified performance—something that can save you up to 15 percent of your total energy bill!
Where flexibility is great is when it comes to the finishes you can choose. Interior finishes are available in a standard bare wood that can be stained or painted to match the interior of your Pontiac-area home. Or you can opt for the factory-applied white semi-gloss which will reduce time and labor during installation. For exterior finishes you can choose from Stone White, Cashmere, Pebble Gray, Bronze, Evergreen, or Ebony. Each of these finishes can be painted without impacting the window’s durability.
