Fiberglass Windows and Doors
Fiberglass itself is nothing new. It’s been floating boats and adding strength to ladders for years. But until recently, the complext profiles required for window designs have been impossible to attain with fiberglass. Milgard’s R&D team faced this challenge and engineered a window and door system that’s impervious to water, cold, heat, insects, salt air and untraviolet rays. The end result: efficient windows and doors that maintain their beauty in every season, in any climate. Milgard gives you two distinctive choices when it comes to fiberglass windows and doors: Ultra and WoodClad.
Milgard’s Ultra Series
Ultra combines the benefits of fiberglass with the quality of Milgard’s production process. Fiberglass is perhaps the ultimate building material. When you first look at a Milgard Ultra series window, you might think that it’s painted wood. That’s no coincidence. In fact the window system was designed to match the beauty and profile of a wood window product, while avoiding the maintenance issues that wood windows face.
Our Ultra series windows won’t absorb moisture. In fact, due to their fiberglass composition the fram will thermally expand and contract at about the same rate as the insulated glass unit, so they’re fingertip easy to open in any weather.
For appearance and performance, Ultra offers an upscale look that will complement any home, anywhere – from the West Coast to the Atlantic seaboard. Its baked-on paint finish won’t peel or eggshell, unlike a painted wood finish.
And finally, they’re permanently joined without the use of staples or nails for a cleaner look.
Milgard’s WoodClad Series
Milgard’s WoodClad series of windows and doors suits not only the architectural purist, but the architectural realist as well.
Milgard WoodClad fiberglass windows and doors are built with the same fiberglass frame as our Ultra series but have a beautiful vertical grain Douglas Fir cladding, on the inside. Compare our wood finish to the pine typically used by many wood window manufacturers.
Unlike most wood window manufacturers who have offered wood windows with exterior cladding to compete with the low maintenance features of aluminum and vinyl windows, Milgard’s fiberglass frame will not absorb moisture that can cause the windows to stick. And best of all, since our WoodClad products have a fiberglass exterior, you can paint them any color you like, unlike many wood windows that have a vinyl exterior.
When it comes to the details, Milgard doesn’t stop at providing the highest quality wood. Thanks to some ingenious engineering, WoodClad windows have no unsightly staples or nail holes that are so common in ordinary wood windows. We have the ability to provide you with the custom shapes, sizes and configurations you demand. Because our commitment to the quality of your window goes deeper than merely the beauty you can see on the outside, Milgard only uses solid stainless steels crews throughout the window’s construction, so there’s nothing to coorode or rust – ever.
Maybe you’re building a new home, planning a remodel, or just want to replace those old, tired windows that keep your energy costs high every month. Or maybe you want to have your favorite paint color outside and a stain or paint to match your furniture or cabinetry inside. Whatever the reason, Milgard Ultra and WoodClad Fiberglass windows and doors are the right choice for your home.
