If you are looking for optimal strength and a traditional wood style for your home, fiberglass windows are the best choice. As of recently, it is now possible to design fiberglass windows due to contemporary innovations. Therefore, styling is not limited to fit your aesthetic needs. Here at Lake Washington Windows & Doors, we provide top-notch fiberglass lines by Milgard featuring the Ultra Series and the Essence Series for our windows and frames. Check out our blog to explore the benefits of implementing our fiberglass line in your home today.

Durable & Energy Efficient

Milgard’s fiberglass windows and exteriors are built to last through every season and are extremely energy efficient. Made from glass fibers, the frame has the ability to expand and contract at almost the same rate as the insulated glass it holds. As a result, your windows will remain fog-free and crystal clear as the chances for seal failure are reduced due to the minimal stress placed on the seals. This is why these windows are the perfect choice for environments with high heat and humidity (such as bathrooms and kitchen areas) and can help reduce energy bills in the winter.


Not only are both Milgard fiberglass windows and exteriors excellent in resisting more heat, they are highly durable and strong. Thus, this allows for more resistance to bugs, rotting, warping, and shrinking. In regards to fiberglass exteriors, these substantial frames will protect the interior against the elements as well. Moreover, fiberglass windows are able to hold paint exceptionally well in comparison to other windows. As a “natural U.V. protector”, it is less likely that you will see chips, cracks, or fades in the paint job.

Customizable Designs

As mentioned previously, fiberglass windows now offer design flexibility as they can be cut into any shape or size for your design needs. The use of fiberglass allows for strong, customizable designs and the stability of fiberglass will supplement any weakened areas, which is one of the top reasons why homeowners love fiberglass windows. Also, fiberglass exteriors fit most styles and trends and come in a variety of 16 different powder coated colors. Plus, these frames are already aesthetically pleasing without the presence of staples or nail holes.
