Replacing windows and doors can seem stressful—but it doesn’t have to be. Whether you’re unsure if you need to replace or wondering what to do next, we’re here to help you understand each step and make your replacement project a success.
Is it really time for a replacement? Some signs, such as condensation or cosmetic damage, might not need replacement at all and are actually perfectly normal. Others, like water stains and wood rot, need immediate replacement. Knowing the signs that require prompt attention versus those that can be easily fixed can help you evaluate whether and how soon a replacement is needed.
Need help deciding?
We can help you navigate the process of selecting your replacement windows and doors. We’ll get started with a high-level look at basic choices like window/door styles and materials (wood, extruded aluminum or Ultrex fiberglass), and then we’ll guide you through design options – like wood stains, colors, hardware finishes, shades and screens.

Local independent Marvin dealers
You can view replacement windows and doors in person at a local independent Marvin dealer. Your dealer may be a Marvin Authorized Installing Retailer (they handle all aspects of the replacement process), while others work with contractors for measuring, order, and installation. Our experts are always happy to partner with your contractor or to recommend a contractor if you don’t already have one.
Depending on the size of your replacement project, there could be a lot to do before and on installation day. Ensuring that all decorative treatments are removed, turning off alarms, and confirming the date and time of the installation are just a few ways you can avoid extra hassle and ensure your replacement runs as smoothly as possible.
With your installation complete, it’s time to step back and enjoy the benefits of your replacement project. New windows and doors can save you as much as 15% on your energy bills while reducing wear and tear on heating and cooling systems.* New windows and doors could also lead to new possibilities—the remodel you’ve been waiting for, or more light in your favorite room. And our trusted warranty helps ensure you can enjoy your new windows and doors for years to come.
