Bay and Bow Windows are NOT included in the table above. They are assemblies made from a series of 3 to 5 windows, sometimes more, so they are priced cumulatively based on the number, type and size windows.

Most Marvin Bay and Bow Window Assemblies cost $3,700 to $6,000 or more. To add those prices to the table above would cause confusion and skew the cost spectrum higher.

The Marvin Window Company

This is a family-owned company now ran by the third and fourth generations of the family. The founder was George Marvin who arrived in Warroad, MN in 1904. He took a job managing the local grain elevator. The lumber boom began, and Marvin saw an opportunity. In 1912, the Marvin Lumber & Cedar Company was formed. The business thrived and, in time, George’s son, William “Bill” Marvin became part of the leadership.

Today, Marvin employees 4,500 associates in five states. In 100+ years, Marvin has continued to be an innovative leader in designing and manufacturing quality, energy-efficient and beautiful windows and doors.

Marvin Window Prices

Like competitors Pella, Andersen, Jeld Wen and CertainTeed/MI Windows, Marvin makes several lines of windows and doors to give consumers options. See our overviews of those brands for head-to-head comparisons of the products they offer. We will say this: Marvin offers the high quality of those other brands’ best fiberglass windows and wood windows, but not the variety of options, especially of Pella and Andersen.

Marvin has changed its product lineup and names in recent years.

Here’s an overview. There are more details with full Marvin window prices for each series below.

The well-known Ultimate line is now the Signature Ultimate Series – wood with aluminum cladding on the exterior. The counterpart series is the Signature Modern Series which is all fiberglass.

Marvin Signature Coastline windows are a new addition – an all-aluminum frame window with sturdy, shatter-proof glass designed for HVHZs, or high velocity hurricane zones of the southeast and south.

Marvin Elevate windows combine warm wood interiors with tough but attractive fiberglass exteriors that hold up to extreme weather.

Cut-out of Marvin Elevate Windows

Marvin Essential is an all-fiberglass window. Marvin claims its proprietary fiberglass has a peak stress tensile strength of 41.6 while Andersen Fibrex has a rating of just 5.5.

Discontinued! The Tilt Pac Double Hung Sash Replacement System is chosen when the basic frame is in good condition, but the sashes have seen better days. They offer good choices for finishes while saving you money on the cost of window replacement. The System is only used in single-hung and double-hung windows.

We include prices in our overviews to give you the information you need to make a decision about your next set of windows. Keep in mind that our prices are national averages, and they don’t include installation costs. When you receive written estimates from contractors in your area, prices may vary based on factors such as the time of year, dealer competition in your area as well as your region’s cost of living.

Price Disclaimer: Note that many window companies supply their products through third party retailers and so the prices shown below may vary greatly from retailer to retailer and contractor to contractor. There are also many other factors which can affect window installation / replacement. We therefore recommend you use our system to find a contractor in your local area, who can give you a free accurate and personalized quotation.

You’ll note that double-hung windows are often the most expensive in the line. Most homeowners consider casement and awning windows more expensive. The reason for the wider price range for double-hung windows is that they are manufactured in sizes both smaller than casement and larger than either casement or awning windows.

More Information on the Marvin Window Series

Each of these Marvin windows series has unique characteristics which factor into their appearance, performance and price. There are a variety of Marvin Specialty Windows too, and they’re covered below.

Marvin Signature Ultimate Wood Windows

These are Marvin’s hallmark wood windows, formerly called Marvin Ultimate. Compare them to Pella Architect Series and Andersen A-Series windows.

They’re given the name “Ultimate” both for quality and the number of options offered.

Start with window styles. There are 3 styles of Picture, 2 styles of Single-hung, 2 of Corner windows, 6 casement window styles and 4 awning window styles. The differences are mainly in the way the windows operate and in their frame styles.

For example, the Signature Ultimate Casement Window is available in both crank-out and push-out styles as well as French casement styles that open outward like French doors creating a lovely appearance. The Ultimate Awning Windows are push-out rather than crank-out windows, and this precludes the use of screens in them.

Standard, narrow and “Magnum,” a beefier frame, are offered in several of the window types.

Specialty Marvin Ultimate double hung windows with rounded tops in a variety of styles including half round, radius, arched, eyebrow and radius glass with a squared-off frame.

The standard windows are unfinished. Your wood options are Pine (standard price) or upgraded choices Cherry, Douglas Fir (standard or vertical grain), Mahogany and White Oak.  Black Walnut is a premium choice. You have the option of finishing the windows yourself or selecting from a nice selection of pre-finished styles. Primed and clear-coat finishes are options too.

Marvin offers aluminum-clad exteriors in more than 15 colors. You’ve got a very appealing range of choices for window hardware, grills and glass packages – including Energy Star and Triple Pane packages.

*Marvin doors are manufactured in six patio and sliding glass door series including standard and French style sliding glass doors, swinging French doors and Arch-top doors. Marvin patio and sliding glass doors are reviewed here.

Marvin Elevate Wood Windows

These are a hybrid window with wood interiors and fiberglass exteriors for better weather-resistance than wood offers. Choose from picture/shape, gliding, double-hung, casement and awning windows. This series also features several sub-styles that give you additional options within the window types such as narrow frames that give you more glass area and a better view and rounded tops on some windows.

Elevate windows have pine interiors, bare, clear-coated or painted in white or black. You have six exterior color choices and a range of hardware, grille and glass offerings to customize the windows.

Marvin Signature Modern Windows

These fiberglass-frame windows have a decidedly contemporary feel, almost industrial. If you like clean, minimalist lines, these are worth considering. The fiberglass is strong enough to allow for the narrow frames – and the narrow frames maximizes your view and incoming natural light.

Casement and awning windows are produced in this line, and both crank-out and push out windows are offered.

Marvin Essential Fiberglass Windows

These are generally Marvin’s most affordable windows, though depending on the features and accessories you choose, they might cost a little more than Marvin Elevate windows.

Marving Essential windows are all-fiberglass windows produced in casement, double-hung, awning and glider windows, plus fixed/shaped windows. So, you’ve got good options for putting together an attractive window package for your home or addition. The Series was called Marvin Integrity All Ultrex until recently. Ultrex is Marvin’s proprietary fiberglass blend.

Six exterior colors and two interior tones give you decent choices for the look of your windows. Generally, the accessory options are fewer than with the Ultimate Modern windows.

Doors Too! All Marvin Window Series include doors such as Sliding patio doors and French doors.

Marvin Tilt Pac Double Hung Sash Replacement System – Discontinued

These are affordable replacement windows if your frames are in excellent condition. Just the tilt sashes are replaced. You’ll be surprised at the number of style choices offered including six wood species, six stain colors, primed wood, several hardware selections and grill and glass packages.

Main Reasons to Choose Marvin Windows

Here’s why many homeowners consider windows from Marvin for their homes. Plus, there are a few potential disadvantages too to consider.

Key features of Marvin windows include:

  • All Styles of Window including popular casement, double-hung and fixed/picture.
  • Material Choices – Wood, Fiberglass and Aluminum
  • Unique Options like Standard & Push-out Casement, Magnum Oversized Frames.
  • Options for Classic, Traditional and Modern Windows
  • Choice of Pine, Cherry, Douglas Fir, Mahogany & White Oak Frames – Marvin Ultimate
  • Marvin Dealers in All Major Cities or Metro Areas
  • Matching Patio Doors
  • Good Window Warranties

Pros of Marvin Windows:

  • Good Selection of Materials & Styles – Beautifully designed windows in wood, fiberglass and aluminum.
  • Affordable wood windows – the Elevate Series with fiberglass exteriors.
  • Premium wood too – Marvin Signature Ultimate.
  • Coastline Hurricane/Storm-resistant Windows

Cons of Marvin Windows:

  • No Vinyl Windows.
  • Limited Availability in Small Towns/Rural Areas (but that’s common for many brands).

Compare Marvin with Pella, Andersen and Other Major Brands

Marvin compares most closely to Pella because both brands make wood windows and fiberglass windows. The differ in that Marvin offers aluminum windows, but Pella does not; Pella makes vinyl windows, but Marvin doesn’t.

Marvin Essential all-fiberglass windows are available in an equal number of styles and choices as Pella Impervia fiberglass windows. They are the top fiberglass windows on the market today.

Wood – Marvin Elevate windows are comparable to Pella Lifestyle windows. Both are midrange in cost and offer similar styles, options and accessories.

Marvin vs Other Major Brands

Marvin Ultimate Signature and Pella Architect and Reserve Series windows qualify as premium wood windows. If you’re comparing wood window brands, look at Andersen A-Series and E-Series windows too plus Jeld-Wen Custom Wood, Ply Gem MIRA and Harvey Majesty Series windows.

If you live in a coastal area where high winds are common, like in a HVHZ, consider Marvin Coastline windows.

Other windows suitable for storm areas are Pella Defender and HurricaneShield, Simonton StormBreaker and Andersen windows with the Stormwatch package.

Who else makes aluminum windows? There are few national brands that make aluminum windows because they are best suited to warm, coastal regions. They are not well-insulated, but aluminum does hold up well in areas with salt-spray in the air.

Compare Marvin Coastline windows to the storm windows mentioned above. For standard aluminum windows (Marvin Coastline can be used anywhere, of course), consider Milgard Thermally Improved A250 windows. Ply Gem windows are offered in 3 aluminum window series.

*Jeld-Wen has discontinued its Builders Atlantic aluminum windows line.
