Fine Homebuilding's Behind the Build: Learning to Install Windows

Fri, 03/10/2017 - 13:14

Students do the tricky (and sticky) work of installing windows in the ProHome’s hi-performance wall assembly

More and more cold-climate homes have exterior rigid insulation which is often needed to meet code-specified R-values and which by minimizing thermal bridging increases performance over a wall with only cavity insulation. Installing exterior insulation is quite simple, but it does complicate some details including window installation.

If this is their first experience installing windows, the students who helped on the ProHome will have learned the importance of getting it right from the right guy. Builder Mike Guertin says that he spends “… an extra 15 to 20 minutes on a window … to make sure we’re getting an excellent air seal because that’s going to give us the most bang for the buck.” And air sealing is only one of the goals of an exceptional window install. The other important actor is to manage water.

Though there are a few ways to install windows in thick walls, Mike taught the students to set them in plane with the siding and trim.

NBC Sports Features our Warroad, Minnesota Hockey Roots

Wed, 02/22/2017 - 14:53

Located less than a half hour from the Canadian border, and with a population of just under 1,800, Warroad, Minnesota is probably an easy town to miss unless you happen to be from there, or know somebody from there.

This small town has become such a hockey factory and developed such a rich history within the sport — at all levels — that it has been dubbed “Hockeytown, USA.”

One of the biggest driving forces behind hockey in Warroad over the years has been the Marvin Family, owners of the largest employer in Warroad (Marvin Windows and Doors), for contributing to the construction of the Warroad Gardens rink and helping to ensure that kids always have a place to skate. That commitment has helped drive a passion for hockey in the town that has helped it produce a lasting impact on the sport that has been felt locally (the dominant boys and girls high school programs), Internationally, and in the NHL.

The NBC Sports Group celebrated Hockey Day in America with an NHL quadrupleheader followed by a documentary that brings the rich hockey tradition of Warroad to life through iconic Olympic athletes and professional hockey players.

Portrait Magazine Features Home on The Water's Edge with Marvin Windows

Wed, 02/22/2017 - 12:57

In a recent feature in Portrait Magazine, it’s clear the Pacific Northwest has a special relationship with the outdoors. For the wet part of the year, that relationship is something like puppy love: longing glances, occasional dalliances, gloomy afternoons spent pining on the sofa. But during those brief, brilliant months of summer, they throw themselves out of the house with abandon: cooking, eating, entertaining, recreating, relaxing and soaking up every drop of those few, endless days.

For the owners of this custom home in Lake Oswego, their vision of paradise is a place where the outdoor party never has to stop, rain or shine. That’s where Marvin windows came in – keeping the home “well insulated even during the stormiest of days, particularly important for a home this close to the water.”

Mon, 02/06/2017 - 11:13

Fox Cities Magazine profiles a Usonian-Style Frank Lloyd Wright replica built on the shores of Lake Winnebago, Wisconsin. Marvin windows were utilized to fulfill the unique challenge of replicating the complex design of the home – a single-story, flat-roofed dwelling that emphasizes a deep connection with nature, including the natural habitat whenever possible. Massive structural timbers had to be delivered by crane, and the windows had to be “strong enough for the unique design.”
