Why Milgard?

Why Milgard doors and windows – Your home deserves the best, our products deliver it in every way.

When you're looking to buy or replace doors and windows, you can't go wrong with Milgard® windows and doors. Our determination to be the industry's best extends to everything we do. So when you want doors and windows that last, we're the only place you need to look. Here's why.

Full Lifetime Warranty

Our warranty is unsurpassed in the industry. When we say this is the last patio door or window you will ever have to buy, we mean it. Every Milgard product is guaranteed against defects in materials and workmanship for as long as you own your home. That includes labor and materials.



To ensure durability, Milgard doesn't leave quality to chance. Milgard produces its own frame and sash components using only the finest grade materials. For example, we use a custom vinyl recipe and extrude our own vinyl components to ensure the best performance and durability over time. We also make our own fiberglass doors and windows. Milgard uses a process known as pultrusion, where glass rovings and mats are pulled at tremendous forces through a resin bath and a series of dies. These materials combine and catalyze to provide unparalleled tensile and torsional strength.

Others might be satisfied with the status quo, but not Milgard. Take, for instance window hardware. Most other manufacturers use off-the-shelf hardware, Milgard did better. Arthritis Foundation Ease-of-Use Commendation We created our own patented SmartTouch® lock and became the first window manufacturer to receive the Arthritis Foundation Ease-of-Use Commendation, and only window manufacturer to receive a 2008 Bronze IDEA award for design. You'll find innovations everywhere you look at Milgard.

Award-winning Performance

Builder Magazine Professional Remodeler Magazine Professional Builder Magazine

Milgard vinyl doors and vinyl windows have won Builder magazine's Best Quality in the Nation Award six out of the last ten years and their National Most Used Vinyl Window Award four times. We were also named Number One in the West the last four years. We've also won both Professional Remodeler magazine's and Professional Builder magazine's "Most Preferred Vinyl Window" Awards three times. What these awards mean to us is that we are doing things right. What they mean to you is that you're getting windows you can count on.


Nobody pays more attention to materials than Milgard. Where many other window companies don't have control over the entire process, we do. We temper our own glass, we make our own insulated glass units, and we produce our own vinyl and fiberglass. This gives us the ultimate control over quality. Take Milgard fiberglass doors and fiberglass windows, for example. Their base material, fiberglass, is nothing new. It's been floating boats and adding strength to ladders for years. But until recently, the complex profiles required for window designs have been impossible to successfully attain with fiberglass. Milgard's R&D team faced this challenge and engineered a fiberglass window and door system that's virtually impervious to water, cold, heat, insects, salt air and ultraviolet rays. The end result: efficient windows and doors that maintain their beauty in every season, in any climate.


Because Milgard offers custom sizes without any upcharge, there's practically no end to the variety of sizes we can offer you in windows and patio doors. If you can imagine it, there's more than a good chance we can make it or configure it. And within all those choices in doors and windows, there's a vast selection of grid, glass and hardware options to further customize the doors and windows of your dreams.


While our coverage is extensive, our service is local. Milgard has multiple locations across the west and south. Our belief is that by being close to our customers, we can provide them better service. This means faster lead and delivery time, as well as faster response to any warranty situations. We're there for you long after your builder or contractor has completed the job. Milgard also has a comprehensive network of dealers and offers some of the best training in the industry.
