natural wood paired with a fiberglass

Milgard Essence Series®
Wood Windows

Wood has always been praised for its beauty and natural insulating properties inside the home, but presented real challenges in terms of durability on the exterior. With Milgard Essence Series wood windows you get the best of both worlds. A durable fiberglass exterior stands strong to protect a solid wood interior against the elements for lasting beauty and exceptional performance.

Benefits of Essence Series

Solid Wood Interior

Essence Series custom windows are a true wood window enveloped by a tough, durable fiberglass frame. Interiors are available in clear Douglas fir, natural pine or primed pine. Seal or stain the natural pine or fir to complement the wood finishes in your home. Or go with primed wood and paint the color of your choice.

Even Sightlines

Picture windows are available in casement/awning and double hung/slider frames that create a clean, consistent look when used with the matching operating style. The design of each of these combinations will create even sightlines throughout your home and work well in new construction or replacement projects.


Milgard Essence Series wood windows come with the option of our patented Milgard® SmartTouch® lock or a traditional spoon lock. Folding nesting operating handles and slim line sash locks are standard on casements and awnings. Double hung and slider wood windows come with integrated tilt latches.

Full Lifetime Warranty
