Marvin Windows and Doors' Newest iPad App Makes Clear the Value of a Beautiful Finish

The New Marvin Finishes App Puts Window Customization -- Featuring Marvin's Factory-Applied Interior and Exterior Finishes -- Conveniently at Your Fingertips

WARROAD, MN--(Marketwire - Mar 22, 2013) - Marvin Windows and Doors continues its commitment to customization, service and innovation with a new iPad and iPhone app that lets users build a window or door with a customized interior and exterior finish. Homeowners and building professionals alike now have a virtual Marvin showroom at their fingertips.

This new app lets users view windows featuring Marvin's new factory-applied stains, which include six stains on all available wood species for more than 50 options. The app also offers high-resolution, full-screen stain swatches, so users can view options in great detail. Marvin's meticulous factory stain finish involves a multi-step process that takes place before the window or door is assembled. Each individual piece of wood is sanded, conditioned, stained and oven-cured. Then the finished pieces are clear-coated, sanded a second time and clear-coated a second time, providing an ideal finish.

"We're seeing a great interest in using tablets to explore Marvin products and options on the go," said Christine Marvin, director of marketing at Marvin Windows and Doors. "Whether it's a builder who wants to show clients what their window could look like or homeowners exploring the possibilities, Marvin's iPad app shows the breadth and depth of our interior and exterior finish offerings. With Marvin, your window and doors are truly built around you, and the iPad app shows you how."

The Marvin Finishes app also features all of Marvin's standard colors and lets users make their very own custom color selection. Marvin delivers with 19 standard colors and unlimited custom colors for any size job -- even single-window orders.

"The exterior of a window or door is where homeowners can enhance their home with an exact color specification for curb appeal, harmony with its surroundings or to reflect personality," Marvin said. "And because our clad colors are on extruded aluminum cladding with a finish that meets the toughest standards, your choice of exterior color will remain rich and true for years to come, backed by a 20-year warranty against fading and chalking."

The Marvin Finishes app for iPads and iPhones is available for free from the App Store:
