We are remodeling our kitchen family room area and are considering using the Migard Woodclad windows and would be interested in some feedback on our plan and these windows.
We replaced the windows throughout the house about 5-years ago with the grids style fiberglass windows. We want to maintain the same look, but now find the grids to be rather choppy so are considering a different look for the kitchen/family windows. We had been thinking of the Milgard Woodclad windows--fiberglass on outside to match with rest of the house, but stain grade on inside so that we can stain it to match our cabinets. From the interior, these windows would then look different than the other parts of the house and not have the grids. If it matters, these windows will all face out to the backyard, have the white fiberglass trim, just no grids. Has anyone used these windows? One contractor we spoke to mentioned some problems where the fiberglass attaches to the wood. Somehow, the white fiberglass grids is no longer the look I want for these rooms; however replacing windows throughout the whole house is not an option so am wondering if this would be a good compromise between the two styles. Any thoughts or other suggestions to consider?
