    Sliding Sash Windows - Marvin Custom Colours

    Our sliding sash windows come in any colour you want.

    No matter what your inspiration for a custom window or door colour, Marvin® will match it. You get any colour your heart desires, with your own personal custom colour name and a 20-year warranty. Contact Marvin Architectural for details and ask about special pricing.

    Marvin Anodised Finish

    Anodised aluminium finishes are almost as hard as diamonds, and are one of the most durable finishes available. The anodising process places the aluminium in a chemically stable and non-toxic bath. An electric current is passed through the bath, causing the surface of the aluminium to oxidize and form a stronger coating than the original surface of the aluminium. The resulting oxide coating provides outstanding surface properties including excellent resistance to abrasion, erosion, and ultraviolet light degradation. 

    Additional processing can add colour to anodised aluminium ranging from bronze-tones to black, giving it the appearance of other metals. This process produces finishes in: black, champagne, clear anodised, dark bronze, extra dark bronze, light bronze, and medium bronze.

    To inquire about anodised finishes, warranty information and aftercare instructions contact Marvin Architectural.

    Sliding Sash Windows -Exterior Casing

    Choose an exterior casing option to enhance the profile and architectural detail of your home. Factory-applied casing provides outstanding job-site time savings, plus better performance and consistency. Exterior casing options are available in wood or extruded aluminium factory-finished with a commercial-grade paint. 

    • Clad-wood products come standard without exterior casing. If desired, a casing option can be specified at time of order.
    • All wood windows and doors come standard with wood Brick Mould Casing applied. If Flat Casing is desired, it must be specified at time of order.

    Add exterior clad casing to Marvin windows and doors to enhance your home’s architectural detail. These casings provide the look of wood but are a durable, low maintenance alternative.
