Colonial Architectural Style

Milgard windows and doors bring the traditional Colonial style into the modern era.

Colonial homes have wide and varied styles due to influences from Dutch, French, Spanish, New England and Georgian architecture. Like other traditional style homes, Colonial homes are often fitted with multi-paned windows and shutters. Ventilation is important Colonial homes due to its older structure with little or no open space layout. 

Double Hung/Single Hung windows are recommended for Colonial homes. The windows pair well with shutters, marking the essence of a Colonial style home. The window can be operated from the bottom or top sash, sliding up and down for ventilation. Add grids to emphasize symmetry and accent geometric proportion. For patio doors, classic French sliding doors are a great choice for the traditional architecture of colonial homes.
