Style and innovation. Durability, strength and comfort. This is what you can expect when Milgard windows are placed in your home or office. The new Milgard Essence Series windows are natural, solid wood on the inside, but they have a strong fiberglass exterior to protect your investment from rot or warping over time.
These low-maintenance windows meet Energy Star requirements and are friendly to customers with dexterity issues – the Arthritis Foundation has given the Essence Series windows an Ease-of-Use Commendation in recognition of its locking design.
Essence Series windows have a weather-resistant fiberglass exterior that guards against water, cold, heat, salty air and ultraviolet rays, as well as insects. In addition to its resistance to the elements, the powder-coated exterior will not crack, peel, bend or warp with expansion/contraction during temperature cycles – plus they will never need painting!
While you are guarded from the elements, your views will not be obstructed with the Essence Series. In fact, they will be enhanced with optional PureView screens, where the frame matches the window's exterior color while the fiberglass mesh enables a clearer view of the outdoors. Smaller yarns and a finer weave provide 15% more openness than the standard screen, allowing clearer and cleaner views from your home.
These windows are available in seven unique styles, depending on the architecture and style of your home or office. Plus, the Essence Series includes innovative features, such as a newly-engineered mulling system for creating tighter seals when connecting multiple windows and recessed latches for a sleek design while adding to functionality.
One additional feature, exclusive to Essence Series windows, is the advance HydroGard water management system. If there is a rare instance that water enters the sash system, it is directed away from the window's beautiful wood interior. Not only do Milgard windows protect your home from the elements, but they exceed residential standards for forced entry, ensuring the safety for your family.
