The Summit-University neighborhood of St Paul provides its residents with both a suburban and urban feel. It is home to an array of coffee shops, restaurants, and parks and boasts several top-tier schools. For the past 12 years, our client Dyan has been a resident of this neighborhood. Her home is an 108-year-old brick condo with oodles of historic charm, including a sizable courtyard in the back and breathtaking interior woodwork.
However, Dyan had one aspect of her home that was proving particularly bothersome. Her windows were no longer performing as they should. Drafts had become commonplace and her energy bills had steadily climbed over the years. A top priority was finding a maintenance-free window replacement that would be respectful of her home’s age and architecture. Here’s why Infinity® from Marvin Windows proved to be perfect selection for her project.

This benefits the homeowner because the company understands the extreme weather conditions that the windows must be able to thrive in. This equates to the avoidance of ice and condensation issues.
