Experience the revolutionary design of all natural wood paired with a fiberglass exterior frame. Real wood interior, durable fiberglass exterior. Pure elegance.
Wood Windows Re-Imagined
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.
Solid Wood Interior
Essence Series custom windows are a true wood window enveloped by a tough, durable fiberglass frame. Interiors are available in clear Douglas 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.
Pick your Color
The fiberglass exterior is available in 16 designer colors. We apply the paint using the latest advances in powder coat finishing technology (also used in aerospace and automotive applications.) This makes it more durable than conventional finishes, providing increased protection against fading, chipping and scrapes.
Even Sight Lines
Picture windows are available in casement/awning and double hung/slider 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 and work well in new construction or replacement projects.
Essence Series windows come with the option of our patented Milgard® SmartTouch® lock or a traditional spoon lock. Folding nesting operating handles and slim line sash locks are standard on casements and awnings.
