Marvin pricing query
I have a current quote for some Marvin replacement windows. The quote is for Integrity and Infinity; same sizes for each (suspect stock sizes, actually).
Anyway, I'm baffled given the minor construction differences, why the Infinity is 2x - 3x the price of the Integrity for windows, and 2.5x the price for doors. The salesman expressed a bit of a surprise as well when he was summarizing the costs.
I'll give you some examples (Cdn pricing):
38.5W x 52 1/4H fixed upper/awning lower $684 vs $1722
45W x 25H fixed $388 vs $802
72W x 82.5H sliding patio $1217 vs $3321
The Marvin fiberglass lines appeal to me, and I'm likely going to go this way, but there doesn't seem to be a rationale for the wide spread in costs.
The pricing spread should not anywhere approach that delta.
The Infinity is normally a bit more expensive and is a better finish looking product if you are considering the Ultrex/Ultrex combination. That being said, it is not worth 2X by any stretch.
Is this for a new construction application or replacement? Have you looked at other windows and what is your rationale for the fiberglass? Just asking from a research standpoint.
Take a look at the Integrity wood/Ultrex combination as that is a good looking window.
By the way, there are no real stock sizes. The Integrity used to be run on a stock size program if I am not mistaken but they have moved away from that.
