Integrity Takes Top Honors in 2016 BUILDER Brand Use Study

Wed, 07/20/2016 - 20:26

Building professionals from across the U.S. select Integrity as the leader in every fiberglass window category

FARGO, N.D. – July 20, 2016 – Integrity® Windows and Doors was selected as the best window brand across all fiberglass categories by BUILDER magazine in the publication’s 2016 Brand Use Survey.

The BUILDER Brand Use Survey gives recognition across four categories. Integrity was the top choice in all, as named by building professionals across the country. Survey respondents chose Integrity as their top fiberglass window brand in the following categories: quality, brand used most, brand familiarity, and brand used in the past two years.

“Since our founding 20 years ago, Integrity has led the fiberglass window industry,” said Kris Hanson, senior group product manager for Integrity Windows and Doors. “We’ve built our reputation on tough, yet beautiful windows that offer uncompromising quality and strength. Builders love these things about Integrity, as well as the fact that we can provide a top-notch window with a 10-day delivery. We’re truly honored to hear that builders have such great trust in Integrity that they have given us these accolades.”

Integrity’s fiberglass windows are made with Ultrex® – a state-of-the-art pultruded fiberglass that is eight times stronger than vinyl, three times stronger than wood/vinyl composites and as strong as steel. Integrity offers an All Ultrex fiberglass line of products, as well as a Wood-Ultrex line that combines an authentic wood interior with a virtually indestructible fiberglass exterior. Integrity has a complete line of door and window products, including insert products and IMPACT zone 3 offerings.

The toughness of Integrity’s Ultrex is legendary, making it quite possibly the perfect building material. It beautifully resists rotting, warping, fading and chipping. Additionally, Ultrex is currently the first and only finish to have achieved 624-10 verification from the American Architectural Manufacturers Association (AAMA). Integrity’s finish allows it to be available in darker colors, such as Ebony, while offering superior color retention.

Quebec Home Wins 2016 Marvin Architects Challenge Showdown

Tue, 07/12/2016 - 14:32

WARROAD, Minn. – July 12, 2016 – Determined by popular vote, Marvin® Windows and Doors announces the winner of its Architects Challenge Showdown competition: a residence by architect Malcolm Wildeboer of Vandenberg & Wildeboer Architects in Ottawa, Ontario. The project, Wedge House, was chosen by thousands of public votes over four weeks of voting.

Wildeboer’s project was also awarded top prize in the juried round of the 2016 competition, receiving the Best In Show title in May at the American Institute of Architects (AIA) Convention in Philadelphia.

In his challenge submission, Wildeboer shared that the Wedge House is beautifully situated, with a quarter-mile approach that winds through a towering stand of century pines to a scenic shoreline. The 4,000-square-foot vacation home embraces a comfortable balance between shelter and exposure on the edge of the Ottawa River.

“The entire east façade – a glazed screen of soaring Marvin windows – evokes a bold yet delicate transparency, like a giant tent screen opening toward the rising sun,” said Wildeboer.

As the Showdown winner, Wildeboer will receive a trip to the 2016 Greenbuild International Conference and Expo, held from October 5 to 6 in Los Angeles.
