Milgard Essence Series Wood Windows
Wood has always been praised for its beauty and natural insulating properties inside the home–but presented real challenges in terms of durability on the exterior. With Essence Series®, Milgard combines the best of both worlds. A durable fiberglass exterior stands strong to protect a solid wood interior against the elements for lasting beauty and exceptional performance.
Quality that will never go out of style
Essence Series windows offer seemingly endless design possibilities. The fiberglass exterior comes in 16 designer colors that fit any style or trend.
Interiors are available in clear vertical grain fir, natural pine or primed pine. Seal or stain the natural pine or fir to complement the wood finishes in your home. Or go with primed wood and paint the color of your choice.
Because Essence Series has an innovative mulling system, there’s virtually no limit to window combinations.
Picture windows are available in casement/awning and double hung/glider frames that create a clean, consistent look when used with the matching operating style.
The design of each of these combinations will create even sight lines throughout your home.
Don’t forget about the hardware. You have your choice of 5 different finishes that will fit any décor.
Essence horizontal slider and double hung windows come with the patented SmartTouch® lock. This lock was awarded the Ease-of-Use Commendation by the Arthritis Foundation for its innovative and universal design. The SmartTouch lock engages when the window is closed and is unlocked with just a single motion. It’s the easiest, smartest way to lock and unlock a window, and also assures you that when your window is closed, it’s locked.
The dimensional stability of Ultra™ Series fiberglass windows make it a popular choice for high humidity and high heat environments, such as bathrooms and kitchens. A WoodClad™ Series option offers you the beautiful look of wood veneer on the interior without the need for sanding and repainting.
A Frame For All Seasons
Ultra™ Series windows and patio doors stay true through almost any environment. Because it’s made from glass fibers, the frame expands and contracts at approximately the same rate as the insulated glass it holds. This puts less stress on the seals, reduces the chance for seal failure while allowing for a clear, fog-free view.
