It is well known that fiberglass window frames are an excellent choice for durability and energy efficiency, but nothing quite compares to the warm and welcoming interior appearance of a wood-framed window. Often, a choice must be made between the beauty of wood and the practicality of fiberglass. Fortunately, Milgard’s series of fiberglass windows offers the best of both worlds.
The Ultra line of fiberglass windows uses innovative materials to provide the very best durability and aesthetics. The frames in this line are made from fiberglass, allowing for a rate of expansion and contraction that is identical to the glass pane that it holds. This means that there will be less stress on the seals over time, increasing the lifespan of your windows. These frames are shaped to look exactly like classic painted wood frames, and can replace your current windows without looking out of place.
This line offers the durability and ease of maintenance of fiberglass on the exterior with the natural beauty of furniture-grade wood on the interior. Just like the Ultra line, WoodClad windows make use of fiberglass to reduce the stress created between frames and panes due to expansion and contraction. The interior wood is offered in Douglas fir or Mahogany, and can be painted, sealed, or stained to match your interior. Milgard’s high-quality internal connection system leaves no unsightly nails or staples visible in the frame, improving the natural appearance even further.
