Milgard Essence Series Named among the 100 Top Products of the Year by Professional Builder

Tacoma, Wash. (Sept 5, 2018) – The Milgard® Essence Series® wood interior, fiberglass exterior, window and patio door line was named among the 100 most popular products in Professional Builder Magazine, as determined by its readers.

Milgard developed the Essence Series as a solution to traditional wood-only windows and patio doors that can rot or warp over time. By pairing a natural wood interior with a durable fiberglass exterior, Essence Series redefined what was possible in a wood window product.

“We’re excited to see that Pro Builder readers want to learn more about Essence Series,” said Jeremiah Noneman, Director of Marketing at Milgard Windows & Doors. “With 16 exterior colors, even sightlines, and our innovative SmartTouch® lock, it’s easy to see why builders and contractors in the industry are drawn to Essence Series, which is backed by the Milgard Full Lifetime Warranty.”

The top 100 products were chosen based on reader responses collected from April 2017 through May 2018, based on content found in Professional Builder Magazine print and online editions.
