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.

The fiberglass exterior is available in 16 designer colors. We apply the paint using the latest advances in powder coat finishing technology (also used in aerospace and automotive applications.) This makes it more durable than conventional finishes, providing increased protection against fading, chipping and scrapes.
