  • Marvin Windows
    Dead Space Do-Over

    When working with an awkward layout, adding windows can turn wasted space into a user-friendly focal point. With a housing market that’s now returned to its robust, pre-recession status and, “…the ever-presence of multiple-offer situations and bidding wars,” according to a recent article on BostonHerald.com, many homeowners are choosing to upgrade their existing home with extensive renovations rather than join the buying frenzy.  If one of a homeowner’s primary goals in remodeling is creating more space, but lot size or conservation restrictions prohibit an addition, architects and designers need to come up with solutions that meet their client’s needs while

  • #NextGenStyle Collection Wows at LBM 2016

    It is really easy to write the words “Marvin is all about design possibilities”, maybe even easier to skim over them as you are reading a marketing piece. Many of us spend substantial time and energy trying to bring this statement to life for everyone we meet. With all the energy focused on other people’s Marvin inspiration, how often do you think about what YOUR Marvin style would be?  If your answer is ‘never’ (or even if its ‘all the time!’), keep reading! We posed this very question to the Hastings community and we received 32 incredibly inspired, very diverse

  • Put the STYLE Back in Your Windows!

    No one goes to an art exhibit for the red velvet curtain, but rather for the artwork waiting to be revealed behind it. So let’s just drop the drapes… Picture yourself with a flute of champagne pinched between your fingers eagerly anticipating the drop, only to be distracted by the artist’s poor choice of frame when the big moment arrives. The goal in framing is to complement the art, just as windows are meant to complement the view; this is why the right styling choices are critical. So how does this apply to “styling” your windows? We know artwork is

  • Interior Shades from Marvin – A Perfect Fit

    Marvin has always been known for its quality, great aesthetics and being a market leader in innovation, but in the last two years I feel that Marvin has really begun the process of bundling value into their products. The introduction of painted or stained interior finishes and now interior shades again combine products and services that normally would have had to have been provided by others and now make them convenient directly from the window manufacturer. Interior shades for me are a very exciting product offering. They were designed to integrate with the Marvin window or door, but to operate

  • Minneapolis-To-Marvin Tour Inspires!

    Each year, Hastings partners with our retailers to co-host dozens of tours for contractors and architects to Marvin Headquarters in Warroad, MN. Trip attendees invariably return with strong new relationships and amazing stories to tell! On a recent trip, Hastings architectural sales representative Jim Olender accompanied a group of several contractors and architects to Warroad. Before they headed north, the group took in the beautiful architectural sights (and sites) of Minneapolis. Jim has facilitated many tours around Minneapolis, but he says each tour is a little different. This particular group was treated to a tour of the Guthrie Theater. “As we

  • Coastal Perspectives With Meteorologist Adam Strzempko

    “Even though it is expected to be a more active season than normal there is really no way to tell what storms will make landfall.” – Adam Strzempko, WWLP-22News Weekend Meteorologist  When it comes to coastal design and construction, weather will have a huge effect on the long-term performance of a project.  While damaging weather is a four-season concern, on the coast it’s often hurricanes that grab the majority of the headlines. With the 2013 hurricane season now underway, homeowners on the Atlantic coast should anticipate another active hurricane season this year. The prediction for 2013 by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric

  • Coastal Perspectives With Architect Michael McKinley

    “All attention is directed to the shoreline now – people will continue to build right on the ocean no matter what happens. But that’s where our clients are.

  • Marvin Architect’s Challenge Inspires!

    When I was asked to blog about the 2013 Marvin Architect’s Challenge, I was very excited!  Being new to the Marvin brand team, I’m continually learning and discovering how our brand relates to consumers and our partners.  This challenge in particular, is a way to reach out to architects and celebrate their work on projects that help us slow down, look around and take in the view. As I looked to last year’s winners from our region, James Estes and Donald Giambastiani, I was struck by how their projects were designed – with the same intention to heighten the experience
