Helping the Lightkeeper See the Light.

Helping the Lightkeeper See the Light.

Treacherous nor’easters, hurricane force winds, along with the corrosive effects of salt water, are just some of what nature would throw at the Cape Forchu Lightstation, year in and year out. So when the lighthouse keeper’s dwelling was about to undergo renovation, Integrity® from Marvin® was chosen for the window replacement.
