Infinity From Marvin® vs. Renewal by Andersen®:

Discover the True Worth of Your Windows

  • Discover the Difference: Infinity from Marvin’s Ultrex® Frames are notably slimmer, being 50% thinner than Renewal by Andersen Fibrex® Frames. This design offers homeowners the advantage of more viewable glass, increased natural light, and enhanced scenic views.

  • Avoid Missing Out: In scenarios where thicker frames and less glass are used, as with some windows, important details can be missed. For instance, a child playing outside might be obscured from view due to the bulky frame design.

Choosing Window Frames: Ultrex® vs. Fibrex®

ultrex is made from sand
  • Crafted from abundant silica sand, Ultrex® Windows by Infinity from Marvin showcase the strength of a natural resource. This material, utilized for both frames and glass, ensures consistent expansion and contraction, resisting seal failures over the years.

  • The frames are thermally set to resist expansion and contraction, ensuring reliable performance in extreme temperatures. Infinity’s standout feature is its proprietary acrylic finish, smoother and three times thicker than its competitors. This exclusive 3-layer finish, unique to Infinity from Marvin®, offers significant benefits like resistance to oxidization, corrosion, and color fading. Additionally, it’s been validated by a 624 AAMA verification, indicating its durability under rigorous testing conditions.

ultrex vs rba material
  • Renewal by Andersen® frames consist of 60% vinyl and 40% wood shavings. This composition, while strengthening the window, does not eliminate common vinyl window issues like warping, stretching, fading, chipping, and peeling.

  • The Fibrex® frames from Renewal by Andersen® tend to expand and contract three times more than the glass they encase. This disparity can cause the frames to detach from the glass, potentially leading to argon gas leakage and seal failure.

  • Moreover, Renewal by Andersen’s Fibrex® Frames lack an acrylic coating, leaving them more vulnerable to cracking, peeling, chipping, and fading over time.

Still Considering Fibrex® over Ultrex®?

Ultrex Strong as Steel

Renewal By Andersen Vs Infinity From Marvin

50% Sleeker Frames: Renewal By Andersen vs. Infinity From Marvin

  • Infinity from Marvin® and Renewal by Andersen®, both with a rich history spanning over a century in Minnesota, started with similar ambitions in the quality window sector. Yet, they diverge significantly in their choice of frame materials and craftsmanship.

  • Ultrex® frames from Infinity are nearly two inches thinner than those from Renewal by Andersen®. Infinity’s Ultrex® Fiberglass frames are three times stronger than Renewal by Andersen’s Fibrex® frames. This strength allows Infinity to offer windows with more glass area, allowing in more natural light through their slender and stylish frames, making them a preferable choice for many.

  • Infinity from Marvin’s Ultrex® frames, as strong as steel, expand and contract almost identically to the glass, preventing gaps and seal issues. Additionally, Infinity from Marvin® stands out as the only window featuring an extra three layers of acrylic capping to prevent color fading, chipping, peeling, and cracking.

What Causes Window Failures?

  • Seal failure in windows happens when the glass detaches from the frame, leading to the leakage of argon gas.

  • Embracing the power of sand, Infinity from Marvin relies on ULTREX® frames and glass, ensuring seamless expansion and contraction to minimize gaps and seal issues. Remarkably, Ultrex® exhibits minimal expansion, surpassing vinyl by 87% and Fibrex® by 75%, showcasing a commitment to superior performance and durability.

  • Furthermore, Infinity from Marvin® sets a high standard with its Ultrex® fiberglass windows, surpassing vinyl by 8 times and Renewal by Andersen’s Fibrex® frames by 3 times. This commitment to sturdy construction ensures a window performance that is consistently reliable.

Choosing the right materials for your windows and doors is a decision that shapes your living experience for the long term.

Given their significance,  it’s important  to explore your options and make an informed decision

Explore Your Options:

Vinyl vs. Infinity Ultrex®—Comparing Frames:

  • Vinyl’s vulnerability to warping and shifting under everyday conditions can impede window operation and overall performance. On the contrary, Ultrex® resists sticking, swelling, and warping, ensuring smooth operation for windows and doors.
  • Moreover, the heavyweight of dual-pane glass in vinyl frames requires thicker, wider construction, resulting in less viewable glass and a bulkier frame.

Wood vs. Infinity Ultrex®:

  • While wood windows offer timeless beauty, they typically require upkeep. Infinity windows capture the elegance of wood without the maintenance, offering a maintenance-free solution.

RBA Fibrex® vs. Infinity Ultrex®:

  • Ultrex® windows redefine elegance with a slim frame design, maximizing visible glass. The material’s expansion rate aligns seamlessly with glass, ensuring windows that resist leaks, seal failures, and stress cracks.
  • Ultrex® features a durable acrylic finish, paintable and fade-resistant, providing virtually maintenance-free longevity. Its finish, three times thicker than competitors, resists chipping, denting, or peeling.
  • Recognized as the strongest window framing material, Ultrex® outperforms Fibrex® and Vinyl alternatives, resisting bending and flexing for enhanced durability.

Our salesman and lead installer demonstrated extreme knowledge in the “infinity” line of windows. Installation of four windows went smoothly in one day. They made sure the windows opened easily before they left and were through with cleanup. Thanks

Peralta F.

The door was recommended by my son and they followed through on the most beautiful door. I was extremely satisfied that they finished it off so fast. The facing around the door looks really good. I used to have a drape pulled across the door but I threw it away because it’s a beautiful door and I like looking at it every day.
