A Stunning Dream View – Built Around You

What’s your dream home? Perhaps it’s a loft condo in the city, a breezy Cape beach house or a gilded Victorian in a quaint New England town. However you envision your perfect home, it’s a very personal expression of you, your family and your lifestyle. When designing your home, you may think about the color of the siding, the shingles on the roof, custom windows, your kitchen cabinets or flooring. Now take a step back and focus on the windows and doors. Really imagine what they look like. These are details that impact both the interior and exterior design of every room in your home.

“I didn’t know what I didn’t know,” is a comment often heard from visitors once they discover the JB Sash & Door showroom. The personalization opportunities are almost endless, which can be very exciting, so it’s important to do this kind of exploration at the beginning stages of designing a custom home or remodeling an existing space. Many homeowners find information at JB Sash that inspires or defines their design direction.

Material Matters

Whether you are considering beautiful high-quality wood windows, statement piece exterior doors, or extruded aluminum cladding that is held to the highest standard in the industry, Marvin makes a beautiful array of material choices one of the many ways to personalize your home.

Do you want your custom windows and doors drenched in color to become a focal point or would you like to create the calm of a monochromatic palette where walls, ceilings, windows and doors feel seamless? There are so many ways to go…perhaps it’s Mahogany with oil-rubbed bronze hardware that reflects your personal style, or you desire to see the ocean through a crisp white frame that ties in with your home’s nautical theme or your mountain getaway calls for Douglas Fir stained exteriors with a forest green painted interior sash. The choice is yours as you revel in embracing your windows and doors as both an interior and exterior design element.

Finishing Touches

JB Sash & Door, the company that recreated the historic transom custom windows above Gate A at Fenway Park, has taken Marvin’s dedication to personalization to a whole new level. They are the only Marvin retailer in the Greater Boston area to offer an in-house paint booth. This service eliminates the need for you to contract your house painter to paint or stain your windows on site.
