I agree..I think both are good. I have never worked with Marvin but have to go by there reputation with people that have. I believe they are a smaller company than Andersen and the Integrity brand is based out of Fargo ND.

Andersen is a very large company and has multiple distribution and call centers across the country.

The warranties look to be similar, though I know Andersen is transferable to the next owner, not sure about Marvin.

I 3rd them. I have installed both, and consider both quality products. Marvin is generally more upscale, but their Integrity line is similar to Andersens 400 series. For your best value, I would go with Andersen 400. But a house with 30 windows may need some touches not offered by Andersen.

Boy, I sound like a politician.

I had an addition put on my home and used the Marvin Integrity windows 3 years ago. They are very high quality and I was very impressed by the fiberglass cladding and the interior wood, although I painted them.
