For the ultimate in windows, Milgard's Ultra Series is exactly what the name states – the best quality frame that's strong, dependable, beautiful and adds warmth to your home. The frame has the stability and low-maintenance characteristics of fiberglass, but the appearance and design look more like a traditional wood frame profile.
One of the best modern building materials is fiberglass, even if most people associate it with boats or vehicles. When you take a look at a window or French door in Milgard's Ultra Series, you may think the frame is painted wood – and this is exactly what they wanted you to see. The frames are designed with the beauty and profile of a wood window, while removing the maintenance of a typical wood frame. In addition, they are permanently joined without using staples or nails, giving the frame a cleaner and sleeker look.
These frames for windows and French doors also keep your energy bills low. Windows are responsible for a significant amount of the energy consumed in a home on an annual basis, sometimes close to 30% of your normal energy costs. Milgard's SunCoat Low-E, standard in the Ultra Series, keeps your home cool in the summertime by rejecting the sun's heat and ultraviolet rays. Then, in the winter, SunCoat Low-E helps keep the warmth inside while preventing any loss of heat to the cold weather outside.
