Marvin Window and Door Installation, Marin County

Most manufacturers provide product specific installation instructions with their windows and doors.  We encourage all customers to review a copy of the installation instructions each time they install a window in order to make sure that the window / door product gets properly installed.    In the event no installation instructions are provided we recommend following the industry standards.  Two applicable standards for window and door installation are ASTM E2112 – 07 Standard Practice for Installation of Exterior Windows, Doors and Skylights and/or the curriculm from InstallationMasters™ Training and Certification Program

Please refer to Marvin’s Installation Instructions for the step by step process to install a Mavin Clad window. We used Marvin’s Sillguard, Moistop Caulking and Moistop Butyl Flashing in this particular installation. Additionally Marvin’s matching evergreen kynar head flashing was added prior to finalwaterproofing and stucco.
