Once the standard material for door frames, interior wood frames coupled with exterior
fiberglass results in timeless beauty and durability against the elements.
Advantages of Wood Frames
- Warmth of solid wood grains
- Excellent insulating properties
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 window and door frames require more maintenance. Regular sealing, staining or painting is needed to prolong the beauty of the wood. Frequent touchups and the occasional refurbishing, sanding and applying new coats is almost always required.
Beauty Combined with Exceptional Durability.
The Essence Series patio door can bring a high level of sophistication to your home. Featuring a durable fiberglass exterior and a natural wood interior, the frame has been engineered to have no visible fasteners for lasting beauty and exceptional performance.
Natural Wood Interior
Essence Series patio doors combine the beauty of a natural wood interior with the durability of a fiberglass exterior. The interior can be painted, or stained and sealed to show off the wood grain. Choose from Douglas fir, natural pine or primed pine for a stunning wooden patio door that is perfect for replacement or new home construction.
Exterior Frame Colors
Milgard offers 16 powder coated colors for its Essence Series patio doors. This method of applying paint is more durable than conventional finishes, resulting in a lasting color that is less likely to chip, fade or scrape.

Advantages of Fiberglass Frames
- Traditional wood profile
- Extremely strong—can hold large expanses of glass
- Low maintenance
Fiberglass frames are essentially composed of glass fibers and resin, materials that expand and contract very little with temperature changes in the weather.
Until recently, the complex profiles required for window designs have been impossible to attain with fiberglass. Innovation has made it possible to design a fiberglass frame and fiberglass windows and patio doors are becoming more popular among homeowners for its beauty and long-lasting durability.
Fiberglass windows and doors resist swelling, rotting and warping. The frame expands and contracts at approximately the same rate as the insulated glass it holds for improved energy efficiency and strength. While fiberglass frames do not require repainting for upkeep, the material is able to be repainted if you prefer to change colors.
A Frame for All Seasons.

Not all vinyl window and door frames are the same. Milgard manufactures its own
vinyl compound assuring quality and consistency over time.
Advantages of Vinyl Frames
- Extremely durable
- Virtually maintenance-free
- Exceptionally energy efficient
Vinyl frames are made primarily from polyvinyl chloride (PVC). This material has 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.

The strength and distinct feel of aluminum has made it timeless and the choice
of architects and homeowners alike for windows and patio doors.
Advantages of Vinyl Frames
- Slim Profile
- Narrow Sightlines
- Low Maintenance
Light yet strong, aluminum frame windows and patio 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 glass walls 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.
