Window Materials:Whats Best for Your House?

Wood

                                         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.

                                        Wood is prized for its natural beauty and warmth. A delicate frame material that is vulnerable to sun and rain, wood is nevertheless desired for its authenticity. Wood-grain texture and intricate details are only provided by solid wood and cannot be truly replicated with wood veneer. Sanding and painting is part of routine maintenance. Solid wood frames are best suited for areas with temperate climates.

Fiberglass

                                        Fiberglass has steadily grown in popularity over the years as a low-maintenance alternative to traditional wood frames. Well-designed fiberglass windows and doors enhance curb appeal through its aesthetic flexibility to match the houses architectural style. Every Milgard fiberglass frame is tested for color uniformity, gloss, film thickness and chemical resistance for quality and long-lasting performance.

                                     Fiberglass frames are also popular because a wood veneer can be added to the interior. This gives you the best of both worlds: the durability of a fiberglass frame exterior and the warmth and beauty of a wood-look interior.

Vinyl

                                      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 manufacturers 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 companys vinyl recipe helps determine the long-term characteristics of the final product, like its weather and impact resistance. 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.

                                                   Vinyl frames are especially energy efficient due to its ability to trap air. In addition to their insulating properties, vinyl frames are UV resistant, require little maintenance and are generally more affordable compared to its wood and fiberglass counterparts.vinyl windows and doors are available in white and various neutral colors.

Aluminum

                                                     There is nothing quite like aluminum a recognized and established frame material that architects and builders have specified for years. The strength and distinct feel of aluminum has made it timeless. Aluminum frames are easy to maintain and are sometimes less expensive than other frame options.Compared with vinyl, fiberglass and wood frames, aluminum conducts heat and cold the least well. To reduce heat flow, Milgard offers a Thermally Improved Aluminum frame in select regions. Thermally Improved Aluminum windows and doors are equipped with thermal breaks to separate the interior and exterior surfaces and improve energy efficiency.
