Milgard Essence Patio Door Install in Seattle

February 28, 2019

Milgard Essence French Style Sliding Glass Doors Recently Installed in Seattle

(Update:  Milgard has discontinued the Essence product line)

Recently, our installation crew installed a new Milgard Essence french style sliding patio door to replace a window in this Seattle, WA home.  See the photos below.  The project involved enlarging the opening in the existing wall, removing the existing window and adding a new 4 x 8 header.  The exterior was wrapped on the exterior with 5/4 x 4 cedar and the interior was trimmed with new 9/16″ x 2 1/2″ chair rail.

The new patio door is from Milgard’s Essence Series and features a VG fir interior and white “Frost” fiberglass exterior.  The hardware is a brushed chrome finish.

Comments from the homeowner:

“We purchased a Milgard sliding patio door through Sound View and had it installed by them as well. Had an excellent experience from start to finish. The door was ordered and arrived on time, and installation was completed in 1.5 days! (This included cutting a new hole in our house). Our installation team did an excellent job and went above and beyond to minimize any finishing work needed, and kept the jobsite extremely clean. We will definitely go to Sound View again for any window or door needs on our house.”
