Industry experts have consistently recognized Milgard, winning “Best Quality Vinyl in the Nation” nine times, “Most Used Vinyl Window” five times and “Builders Choice” for vinyl and fiberglass windows in the Western U.S. by BUILDER magazine.
Milgard Vinyl Windows
Vinyl frames have many advantages, including being virtually maintenance-free. There will be differences in the quality of one manufacturer’s vinyl compared to another. This is because a vinyl frame is made from a compound—a recipe of sorts—that dictates its performance over time. Each additive to a company’s vinyl recipe helps determine the long-term characteristics of the final product, like its weather and impact resistance. For example, titanium dioxide makes the vinyl more heat resistant. At first glance, competing windows may look the same, but there can be key differences in the vinyl recipe used and how vinyl parts are formed to make a window structurally strong and optimize insulation performance
Milgard Wood Windows
For years, wood has been a readily available window substrate, and the most common choice for homes. It could be painted a solid color or stained and sealed to show off the wood grain. Wood is also strong and easy to work with, is a natural insulator and complements many forms of architecture.
Compared to vinyl and fiberglass, wood frames require more maintenance. Regular sealing, staining or painting is needed to prolong the beauty and performance of the window or door. Frequent touchups and the occasional refurbishing, sanding and applying new coats is almost always required.
Milgard Aluminum Windows
Light yet strong, aluminum windows and doors can be configured into a wide variety of combinations. The narrowness of the frame places the focus on the glass and subsequently, the view it offers. Multi-panel door systems are often made with aluminum frames to facilitate indoor/outdoor living. Milgard aluminum frames are available in anodized or baked-on finishes for long lasting color. Sealed, mechanically joined corners stay square and true over years of use.
Milgard Fiberglass Windows
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.
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.
