Vinyl patio doors can make a world of difference to your home. Each patio door is custom made from Milgard’s signature vinyl formulation and crafted with award-winning hardware.
Vinyl frames are made primarily from polyvinyl chloride (PVC). This material has many advantages, including being virtually maintenance-free.
There will be differences in the quality of one manufacturer’s vinyl compared to another. This is because a vinyl frame is made from a compound—a recipe of sorts—that dictates its performance over time. Each additive to a company’s vinyl recipe helps determine the long-term characteristics of the final product, like its weather and impact resistance. For example, titanium dioxide makes the vinyl more heat resistant. At first glance, competing windows may look the same, but there can be key differences in the vinyl recipe used and how vinyl parts are formed to make a window structurally strong and optimize insulation performance.
Trinsic™ Series | V300 vinyl patio doors have a modern style and an expansive viewable glass area perfect for capturing outdoor vistas. The even sightlines offer a streamlined and aesthetically pleasing feeling throughout your home. A narrow frame profile provides a sleek, clean look, allowing your view to take center stage.
Generally, vinyl doors are available in white and various neutral colors. Milgard recently developed a two-coat formulation of seven premium exterior vinyl finishes available in light and dark variety, in addition to standard white and tan. New coating technology allows UV rays to pass through the color formulation and reflect off the vinyl frame. This preserves the exterior finish. Consequently, a vinyl window or patio door can look nearly new for years.
