These details make the difference.

Whether you are planning a new custom home, designing an addition, or remodeling an existing space, Hammond Lumber Company helps you envision how Marvin Windows and Doors can change the way you live in your home. The tiniest details can create the look and feel you imagine. That’s why it’s important to partner with companies who are dedicated to quality and have an appreciation for every detail. Maine is home to just such a resource in Hammond Lumber Company, where a culture of always putting the customer first is part of its heritage.

“While some homeowners come to Hammond with plans from a designer or architect,” says Hammond Lumber Company Sales Manager Fred Perkins, “many arrive with their concept or wish list and our team helps them bring their vision to life. It’s exciting for the homeowners to get the guidance they need when selecting windows and doors and it’s rewarding for our team to be part of that process.”

To ensure that Hammond can fulfill its commitment to customers, the company has partnered with Marvin Windows and Doors, which shares Hammond’s vision of always exceeding customer expectations down to the last detail. Perkins explains that enhancing curb appeal is one of the top requests Hammond’s team receives from homeowners when they’re building or remodeling, and this is where the details offered in Marvin’s quality windows and doors can make a huge difference.

“We work in close collaboration with Marvin Windows and Doors,” says Perkins. “Through their Marvin and Integrity products, we are able to offer ways to transform a home, enhance curb appeal, create light-filled rooms, and make the process of building or remodeling more efficient.”

Color Is More Than a Small Detail

Color is an important consideration in any design, and Marvin now offers more choices than ever before. For those who would like beautiful, ready-to-install windows and doors, Marvin offers finishes that are applied at the factory, eliminating the time and cost of painting or staining them on site. And before a window or door is assembled, every piece of wood is put through Marvin’s proprietary multi-step conditioning and staining process. This ensures a more ideal finish, adding to not only the beauty, but also the lifetime of your windows and doors.

When your design relies on allowing the natural beauty of wood to enhance your room’s look, you can select from Marvin’s myriad factory-applied stains. Each stain color offers a unique way to allow the wood to make a statement in your design.

While virtually any paint color may be employed to personalize your window and door designs, Marvin also offers both white and the new Designer Black factory-applied paint colors, providing customers with more window and door options that are ready to install when delivered. According to the team at Hammond Lumber, there has been an increased interest in using black and dark colors to punctuate a home’s design in the past few years.

“We’re very excited to offer Marvin’s new Designer Black as a factory-applied finish,” says Perkins. “This is the kind of detail that makes a difference because it provides both a stunning look and saves time and money when building or remodeling.”

Beyond these choices, virtually any paint color may be employed to personalize your window and door designs. You may envision the windows on your gray Shingle-style home blending seamlessly with that color palette, or perhaps you dream of your bedroom’s interior window trim matching a beautiful fabric or floor covering. Marvin is always able to prep your windows so that your painter can apply any color after delivery.

A Subtle, Exquisite Finishing Touch

Marvin recognizes that every pull, crank, lock, handle, and hinge on a window or door makes a difference when it comes to personalizing your home. These selections offer subtle finishing touches that complete the overall design. Imagine a brass or nickel lock glistening on your Designer Black windows. Or Marvin’s new Matte Black hardware finish, showcased in Builder, Remodeling, and Custom Home magazines, amplifying the drama. This new finish is being called “the perfect way for homeowners to make a statement.” On the other hand, if your home is inspired by Victorian, Colonial, or rustic architecture, you may want your hardware to reflect that. Recognizing that hardware should be more than an afterthought, Marvin offers nine exquisite hardware finishes, as well as various distinct styles that offer just the right touch.

Integrated Shades by Marvin Offer Privacy and Shade

Although homeowners have a passion for letting in the light, Marvin knows there’s also a need for shade and certainly a desire for privacy.
