Are Marvin Windows worth it?

Marvin is very good at taking your money, but once they have it, you can forget about them taking your phone call when you call with a problem about one (and eventually all) of their windows. Marvin sells an image, not a quality product. We found two casement windows that were clad, bottom of sash had rotted.

What is the best finish for wood windows?

I've had good results using Minwax Helmsman exterior urethane on interior wooden window surfaces. It's easy to use, it dries virtually clear, forms a tough film yet creates a smooth finish. Just remember to sand the wood lightly with 240-grit sandpaper or a fine 3M rubbing pad after the first coat has dried.

How many coats of polyurethane do you put on a window?

There needs to be 3 coats of Polyurethane applied, especially if you are using an oil-based finish. The first coat should be mixed with mineral spirits. This acts as a sealer and provides a barrier between the wood and the oil finish you are using. A bristle brush is needed to apply the coats.

How do you paint stained wood windows?

A strong pre-paint cleaner such as TSP powder, mixed with hot water would be a good choice for the job. Dry - Allow the surface to dry completely before you proceed, especially if the wood has not been clear-coated. Dull - Using 80 to 120 grit sandpaper or sanding sponge, scuff-up the surface.
