The Basics: Windows, Doors, & Floors

Windows, Doors and Floors are some of the most basic and essential elements of any home, completing the shelter for which our homes exist. Because of this they have to be functional, well made, and able to bear the elements and stand up to daily use. They are also visually some of the largest aspects of your homes design so they should be beautiful and contribute to the homes overall atmosphere and aesthetic. Here we offer you a glimpse at some of the finest windows, doors and floors on the market today that combine the best in form and function.


These Fiberglass custom Doors by JELD-WEN allow you to enjoy the look of wood without the upkeep that wood demands. Designed with impeccable detailing that duplicates both the feel and look of genuine wood, right down to the knots and cracks, you would probably never be able to tell the difference. You will appreciate the difference though when you never have to worry about warping or cracking as you would with genuine wood doors. JELD-WEN fiberglass doors are expertly engineered to last longer with less maintenance in any climate and come in a wide variety of finishes and architectural designs to fit any homes décor.


Mohawk hardwood floors are at the top of everyone’s wish-list right now thanks to House Beautiful’s Kitchen of the Year Design by the incomparable Jeff Lewis of Bravo TVs Flipping Out, and for good reason. Lewis chose Mohawk for their ability to combine the beauty and warmth of wood flooring with technology that makes them more durable and able to really stand up to the rigors of daily life in any active household. There are almost endless choices available in color and finish and these particular floors also have a green story. The Zanzibar Reclaimed hardwood floors seen here use wood that has been salvaged from locations throughout the world, keeping would-be waste from piling up in landfills.

We chose Marvin Windows because of the companies tireless pursuit of innovative design, dedication to quality materials and expert craftsmanship, and commitment to energy efficiency and the environment. With literally thousands of options, you have the design flexibility to find the windows that truly compliment your homes style and the comfort of knowing that you have chosen a product that exceeds the American Architectural Manufacturers Association (AAMA) specification of commercial strength and durability. Add to this the fact that virtually all Marvin products already meet or exceed federal ENERGY STAR guidelines and you can see why this is the perfect one-stop-shop for all of your window needs.

Marvin Windows are carried by Builders Window Supply in San Diego. Visit for more information.
