Sharing the install of our Marvin windows and doors!
If you missed the blog post where I shared our window and door selections, definitely check it out! I talked about items we considered when making our selections like material, style, color, and the different types of doors/windows. Before I to take you through the entire installation and showcase how each space came to life, here are a few ways you can prepare for window and door installation day at your home.
1. Clear the area. Move any items that may be near window and door openings.
2. Ensure you have a designated work space for the installers so they can lay out tools and installation materials. If there’s rain in the forecast, try to make sure this space is covered.
3. If you aren’t installing all of the hardware right away for ongoing construction, make sure you have a system for storing it. We recommend plastic baggies labeled for each window or door stored somewhere out of the way of active construction.
4. Schedule time to walk through the project with your installer after the windows are in.
5. Keep track of all order paperwork and installation details. You may need them in the future if you have to address questions about your windows and doors with the company or construction team.
We selected windows and doors from the Marvin Elevate collection, which features super durable Ultrex® fiberglass to the exterior and a warm wood interior. Of the 6 exterior colors, we chose Stone White with Painted White interiors from 4 paint/stain choices because I love that classic coastal look.
Also, when you live out in the country, being able to clearly see the outdoors is essential. This is why we went with casement windows over single or double-hung windows. We also love how easy it is to open the windows on nice days.
