Compare Value: Infinity From Marvin® vs. Renewal by Andersen® Windows

  • Experience Enhanced Views: Infinity from Marvin’s Ultrex® Frames, featuring a 50% slimmer profile than Renewal by Andersen’s Fibrex® Frames, offers homeowners expanded visible glass. This design offers an influx of natural light and enhances the beauty of your surroundings.

  • Maximize Your View: In this comparison, notice how a window with thicker frames and less glass restricts your view, potentially obscuring important aspects of your surroundings, like a child playing outside.

Compare Renewal By Andersen Fibrex® to Infinity From Marvin Ultrex® Frame Material 

ultrex is made from sand
  • Ultrex® windows are constructed using silica sand—an incredibly robust and widely available natural resource

  • Both the frames and glass of Infinity from Marvin Ultrex® products are sand-based, ensuring uniform expansion and contraction. This unique composition, along with thermally treated frames, contributes to the remarkable fact that Infinity from Marvin Windows resists to seal failures, demonstrating advanced thermal stability.

  • Exclusive Acrylic Finish: Infinity’s patented acrylic finish is not only smoother, but also three times thicker than that of its competitors. This unique 3-layer acrylic finish, exclusive to Infinity from Marvin, offers significant benefits. It effectively prevents oxidation, corrosion, and color fading. The finish’s durability is supported by a 624 AAMA verification, indicating it has successfully endured rigorous testing to simulate extreme conditions over a product’s lifetime.

ultrex vs rba material
  • Renewal by Andersen® Frames are a composite of  60% vinyl and 40% wood shavings, creating a stronger vinyl window. However, this blend retains typical vinyl window challenges such as warping, stretching, fading, chipping, and peeling.

  • Fibrex® frames exhibit a tendency to expand and contract at a rate three times greater than the glass they encase. This disparity can cause the frames to pull away from the glass, potentially leading to seal failure.

  • Fibrex® Frames lack a protective acrylic coating. This absence makes them more susceptible to cracking, peeling, chipping, and fading over time.

Ultrex® vs. Fibrex® – What Sets Them Apart?

Ultrex Strong as Steel

Renewal By Andersen Vs Infinity From Marvin

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

  • While Infinity from Marvin® and Renewal by Andersen® share a century-long history in Minnesota with similar commitment to quality windows, distinctions arise in their frame materials and craftsmanship, setting them apart.

  • With Ultrex® frames, nearly 2 inches slimmer than Renewal by Andersen® frames, Infinity from Marvin® unveils a distinct advantage. The Ultrex® Fiberglass frames, being three times stronger than RBA Fibrex® frames, invites more natural light through its slimmer, elegant design – making Infinity the right choice

  • 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.

Why Do Windows Fail?

  • Understanding Seal Failure: Seal failure happens when the glass detaches from the frame, leading to the escape of argon gas.

  • Infinity from Marvin uses ULTREX® frames and glass, both sourced from the abundant natural resource—sand. This ensures they expand and contract together, reducing gaps and seal issues. Notably, Ultrex® showcases minimal expansion, surpassing vinyl by 87% and Fibrex® by 75%.

  • Infinity from Marvin distinguishes itself with frames that are 8 times stronger than vinyl and 3 times stronger than Renewal by Andersen’s Fibrex® frames, ensuring consistent and reliable window performance.

Upgrade Wisely: Infinity Ultrex® Windows Lead the Way

Selecting the right materials for your windows and doors is a decision with long-lasting impacts. These choices influence not just the energy efficiency of your home, but also its security and your overall quality of life. Given the significance, it’s crucial to consider your options carefully and make an informed decision based on thorough research.

Explore the alternatives:

Vinyl vs. Infinity Ultrex®—Frame Comparisons: 

  • Vinyl’s susceptibility to warping and shifting under everyday conditions can hinder window operation and overall performance. 
  • In contrast, Ultrex® exhibits resistance to sticking, swelling, and warping, ensuring smooth operation for Ultrex’swindows and doors.
  • Additionally, the heavyweight of dual-pane glass in vinyl frames necessitates thicker, wider construction, resulting in less viewable glass and a bulkier frame. 

Wood vs. Infinity Ultrex®: 

  • While wooden windows offer classic beauty, they often require maintenance. Infinity windows capture the elegance of wood without the upkeep, providing a maintenance-free solution. 

RBA Fibrex® vs. Infinity Ultrex®: 

  • Ultrex® windows redefine sleekness with a thinner, trimmer design, maximizing the viewable glass. The material’s expansion rate aligns closely with glass, ensuring true windows that resist leaks, seal failures, and stress cracks. 
  • Ultrex® features an acrylic finish, paintable and fade-resistant, providing virtually maintenance-free durability. Its finish, three times thicker than competitors, resists chipping, denting, or peeling.
  • Ultrex® stands out as the strongest window framing material in the replacement industry, resisting bending and flexing, surpassing Fibrex® and Vinyl alternatives.

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.
