Marvin’s Builder Awards and Why This Is a Winning Brand
By: Architectural Visions
Builder magazine is a leading resource for home design, building materials, and related products, serving the residential construction industry and keeping professionals informed and inspired. Each year, Builder conducts a Brand Use survey to get a sense of what is being used and preferred among builders, developers, and contractors across the U.S. Between 750 and 1,000 professionals respond to the Builder survey every year to share their perspectives and best practices. They also share information on the manufacturers and products that they rely on the most and what they see exhibiting the highest quality.
Not surprisingly, the Marvin brand consistently wins Builder awards year after year because of how amazing their window and door products are. Taking into account product quality, price, availability, sustainability, and advanced product features, here is an overview of the Builder awards that Marvin has won and how you can bring this award-winning brand into your home.
Windows: Fiberglass Category
When it comes to fiberglass windows, Marvin stands out more than any other brand. Marvin makes the best fiberglass windows in the industry, including High-Density Fiberglass and Ultrex® Fiberglass. Marvin offers a state-of-the-art pultruded fiberglass known as Ultrex, which is eight times stronger than vinyl and three times stronger than wood/vinyl composites. Marvin has the Essential All Ultrex fiberglass line and the Elevate Wood-Ultrex line of products with numerous designs and glazing options, as well as various exterior finish colors. It’s quite possibly the most perfect building material because of its toughness and resistance to damage.
For many consecutive years, the Elevate and Essential (formerly known as Integrity) product lines from Marvin have earned the top spot for the following subcategories for fiberglass windows: brand familiarity, brands used in the past two years, brands used the most, and quality rating.

Windows: Wood & Clad-Wood Category
Contractors, developers, and builders across the country also love the Marvin brand for wood and clad-wood windows.
The brand has been gaining popularity in recent years for this category and has been winning consistently because of the products’ high quality. Marvin window collections that use wood include Ultimate and Elevate. Clad-wood windows are unique and lower maintenance because they have a traditional wood frame for the interior and a weather-resistant, aluminum clad exterior. Both options lead the industry regarding sustainable material sourcing, processing, and product quality.
Marvin has won the “Windows: Wood & Clad-Wood” Builder award in the following years: ‘
- 2021 (highest quality)
- 2020 (highest quality)
- 2019 (highest quality)
- 2018 (highest quality)

Doors: Patio/Wide-Window Openings Category
Although industry professionals are most familiar with Marvin’s windows, the brand’s doors have also started gaining nationwide attention. Marvin offers a wide variety of patio door options, including bi-fold patio doors, sliding patio doors, multi-slide patio doors, and swinging patio doors. Wide window opening-style patio doors are very popular among homeowners right now because they allow in lots of natural light and blur the line between indoor and outdoor living spaces.
Marvin won the “Doors: Patio/Wide Window Openings” Builder award in 2021 for having the highest quality products, and the brand is optimistic about future brand recognition for its doors in the years ahead.
