next generation of windows. Milgards WoodClad line suits
not only the architectural purist, but the architectural realist
as well. WoodClad is an innovative combination of the best materials
to create the most durable, practical, beautiful window available
Perfect Blending of the Ultimate Materials
But theres simply no single material that can make the ultimate
window. Thats why weve combined the best materials available
to make our best window, the WoodClad window.
it matters, clear vertical grain Douglas Fir warms interiors with
a look you just cant achieve with pine. Only the most select
wood makes the cut for a WoodClad window. Were so picky, we
actually count the number of annual growth rings per inch to maintain
quality and consistency. Outside, we use pure, pultruded fiberglass,
which is extremely durable, is always square, and has the strength
and energy saving characteristics that surpass aluminum, wood, and
The result is
a window that truly blends the best materials, inside and out.
Beauty of Fir
One look at
a Milgard WoodClad window and youll notice a difference immediately.
The warm tones and richness of fir make an ordinary pine window
look, well ordinary. Vertical grain Douglas Fir is known by craftsmen
for its superior characteristics, such as resisting dents and scratches,
accepting stains with consistency and ease, and an extraordinary
look that last and last. Our vertical grain fir is then onlayed
to pultruded fiberglass to make a window that cant be surpassed
in combined strength, beauty and versatility.
When it comes
to the details, we dont stop at the wood we use. For example,
thanks to some ingenious engineering, WoodClad Windows have no unsightly
staple or nail holes that are so common in ordinary wood windows.
Our customer focus means liner widths that fit your job with no
extra jamb extensions required. We even use only solid stainless
steel screws throughout the window, so theres nothing to corrode
or rust. Ever.
Stability of Fiberglass, the Strength of Milgard
perhaps the ultimate building material. It offers amazing durability,
thermal benefits and low maintenance.
Because of its inherent properties, fiberglass cant swell
like wood. It expands and contracts less than vinyl, aluminum, even
steel. I cant warp, rot, chip or fade. In fact, its
so tough, we need diamond tipped saw blades to cut it. Even the
glazing bead is fiberglass, meaning it to will never shrink, dent
or warp. Your windows are always perfectly straight, perfectly square.
The making of
their pultruded fiberglass, or pultrusion is a story
in itself. Long fiberglass strands called rovings are
drawn through a resin bath, then wrapped by mats, which
add torsional strength. A catalyst in the resin hardens the material
as the material is drawn through a hot die at tremendous force.
The end result is an impervious material that resists nearly anything
Mother Nature can throw its way.
Nature Cant Scare Milgards Engineers
engineers have already soaked, baked, frozen and boiled their windows
to overcompensate for the conditions you face in your climate. And
if WoodClad Windows can hold their shape and perform after this
brutality, imagine how strong theyll be in your home. Fiberglass
is one of the most energy efficient, structural materials available,
and offer a strength that vinyl just cant provide.
True No Maintenance Window
fiberglass come pre-finished in White or one of our specialty colors.
A finish that will never crack, peel or need re-painting, ever.
But if you require a custom color, fiberglass unlike vinyl
can be painted at the job site with proper preparation. Ask
Sunset Home Improvements for details.
