Though aluminum, fiberglass, and vinyl windows have their advantages, many homeowners have a tough time abandoning the classic style of wood. To many people, wood has a peculiar magic that other materials can’t match. Luckily, Milgard Windows & Doors has helped make wood windows practical for the 21st century with their Essence Series. Here’s a closer look:
When most people think of wood windows, efficiency is not one of the first words that come to mind. However, the Essence Series windows are made of the finest pine, Douglas fir, or primed wood—all of which are considered effective natural insulators. Add sophisticated glass and tight seals, and you’ve got yourself a window that can keep in indoor air with the best of them.
Of course, it’s not enough for windows to be energy efficient—they have to last, too. Luckily, the Essence Series windows come with an advanced water management system that protects the interior wood from leaks. Of course, the durable fiberglass exterior makes the chances of a leak very slim.
Though vinyl and aluminum windows have their charms, there’s nothing quite like the elegant, grainy texture of wood. Since the Essence Series windows are devoid of unsightly nails or staples, they lend themselves well to staining and painting. Milgard also offers a proprietary powder-coat that gives the wood special protection against scratches. If you want your windows to look good inside and out, you should strongly consider the Milgard Essence Series.
