Sustainability is more than just an industry buzzword these days – it's a way of life. And homeowners across the nation are looking for the eco-friendly renovation options to reduce their carbon footprints and turn their houses, apartments and condos into green spaces. This is where Marvin replacement windows in New Jersey can step in and help.

Marvin is a family owned company that views sustainability as both good business and an eco-friendly initiative. Marvin does more than just use green materials, it spreads sustainability through its manufacturing process and business practices. If you're looking to replace your windows and want a sustainable, reliable choice, look to Marvin for these reasons.

For that reason, Marvin takes durability very seriously, even in coastal areas or other regions with extreme weather. Furthermore, these windows are designed for energy efficiency, which means keeping your cool air inside during the summer and retaining heat in the winter. Windows are also constructed from some recycled materials, like engineered glass containing approximately 20 percent pre-consumer, recycled content.

Marvin also sources wood materials for windows from responsibly managed forests. It's against company policy to use wood from illegally harvest trees or at-risk forested areas, including forests in which genetically modified trees have been planted.

This federal program is a branch of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency that reviews and rates everything from roofing to air conditioners and refrigerators for their environmental impact.
