Marvin pioneered the use of fiberglass for replacement windows and doors over 20 years ago. We go even further with Ultrex® fiberglass—our proprietary fiberglass solution that offers unsurpassed durability and timeless style.
THE ULTREX ADVANTAGE
Ultrex is 8x stronger than vinyl.
Ultrex expands 87% less than vinyl
48,000 hours of sun can’t fade the superior finish of Ultrex fiberglass.
The Ultrex Advantage
Because of Ultrex's incredible strength, we can build narrower framers - so you get more incredible views for your money.
Specifically designed to resist warping and weathering in any conditions for long-lasting durability.
Can expand and contract under everyday conditions— potentially compromising your home’s integrity.
Compared to other materials, Ultrex fiberglass is the strongest window and patio door framing material in the replacement industry.
We test the strength of Ultrex fiberglass so you don’t have to worry about your home. The results speak for themselves. Ultrex resists bending and flexing - that's confidence Fibrex and vinyl simply can't match.
Ultrex expands at virtually the same rate as glass, so our windows and patio doors stay tight and true.
We test the material stability and expansion of Ultrex fiberglass. Ultrex’s proven stability makes Marvin Replacement’s windows and patio doors resistant to leaks, seal failures and stress cracks that can compromise energy efficiency and long-term performance.
Our proprietary acrylic finishing process is unlike anything else in the industry. With a finish that’s 3x thicker than competitive options, Ultrex fiberglass resists scratches, fading, chalking, chipping, denting or peeling to retain its original beauty. Best of all, it is virtually maintenance-free.
Smooth, thick finish
Rougher, thinner finish
The low thermal conductivity and superior performance of Marvin Replacement windows and patio doors built with Ultrex fiberglass combined with a selection of energy-efficient glass options can help save money on your energy bills.
