TuscanyÂ® Series Vinyl Patio Doors
The product was purchased to help keep the room warmer. Before purchase, there was no way to determine just how effective the new door would be in keeping out the cold. Well, it does keep the cold out, but just not to the degree that I had hoped for. My problem was that I wanted more than the product could deliver.

They look good and mke a difference in the house
They look good, work great and they made an immediate difference in the thermal efficiency of the house. My house is quieter inside and my A/C costs decreased. The installer, Preferred Windows of Riverside, has done a bunch of houses in my area and for good reason...they do a great job!

Easy to use
Opens and closes easily, door handle and lock require little effort to operate. Added in window grids which look great. Sales folks and installer were very professional.

Windows save energy and appearance great
Once we had the windows installed, throughout our home, we found that drafts had been eliminated and that heat gain or loss through our windows was greatly improved, both when hot or cold outside. Our comfort was greatly improved.
We live in a condominium type housing complex of over 700 units and we now have the best looking windows in the complex, and the price for all of this was very reasonable.
Ease of use is great. The window latch tells us if the window is or is not locked, just by looking at it. No more do we have to go and try the window to see if it is locked. The windows slide easily. The thermopane glass is nice and clear. The windows are attractive.

Great quality for a vinyl window
We had Tuscany windows and sliding French door installed in 2008 and they are super easy to operate, very quiet and energy efficient. We liked them so much we had Montecito windows put in our garage two years later.

easy to operate
We replaced our old Atrium windows with Tuscany Vinyl Replacement Windows last October and we are very happy with them. They open and close smoothly and look very nice, as does the patio door. We replaced the patio door and love the fact that the handle locks easily when closing, it also opens and closes smoothly. Hoping this summer we will really feel a difference when temperatures get hotter. This winter we didnt have to have our heat on as much even though we had record low/freezing temps in Phoenix this year.

Looks good but not easy to use
We installed two of these sliders and are very unhappy with the functionality. These doors look great but have never been easy to use. They don't lock properly and fall out of alignment easily. They are extremely fragile to say the least. My screens have never been installed because apparently there are some bars that are suppose to go in that have disappeared .

What an improvement! No more leaky, noisey, rattely windows! They look great and quiet, too!

These windows & doors are beautiful.
We chose these windows & sliding doors for efficiency in keeping the heat in and the cold out. They are as beautiful as they are functional. There were many styles to choose from as well as type. They are extremely easy to open and close. The product quality is superior and we expect to receive many great years using and looking at our new windows & doors.

I love the rich brown color.
The windows are beautiful and we are receiving lots of comments. However, several of them arrived with scratches, with one large gash in one of the French doors. I told the business where I purchased them about this but all they did was bring me touch up paint.

MIlgard came to the rescue!
You may have read my "not-so-positive" review of the MIlgard Tuscany patio door that was installed with a rip in the screen. A female rep from Milgard just phoned me and they are going to fix it very soon. I purchased gorgeous patio door with built-in aluminum shades and a paned sidelight. Also had installed a paned picture window. Very elegant looking!

A Hole In the Screen / Panes Mismatched
The Tuscany model sliding patio door by Milgard is excellent, except it arrived with a hole in the screen. Got in touch with the installer and he told me that a work order to fix it is being processed). It's 3:31 pm. on a Friday. A MIlgard rep was on the phone with me during installation. that conversation occured before I discovered the rip in the screen. I told her that there were "surprises": features that were slightly different than what I had expected while ordering the window and door. I would be happy ti discuss this situation with the company that I purchased the product from. For instance, the sidelight window has Colonial frames that do not match the adjoining picture window. The door and windows are beautiful and well-made. Just not sure about the overall experience.

Looks great! Wonderful features! Poor Workmanship....door won't lock properly
Almost impossible to close/lock without some serious pushing and banging. Too bad it doesn't work like in the showroom! If worked like in the showroom, the scores would have been 'excellent' across the board and I would recommend it to anyone.

We like the appearance, quality and life-time warranty on the products.
The main attractiveness of these vinyl sliding patio doors is the built in mini-blinds between the glass panels and the ease these mini-blinds can be handle.l

The product give su the updated look we were looking for.
We have now replaced all the windows two single sliders and this last addition is a 12 foot double slider going from the famly roon onto the patio. They look great amd have kept the house much more comfortable in the late summer heat.

Smooth gliding door
We have an 8'0 x 6'10 sliding French rail Tuscany series door and we love it. It rolls smoothly, is easy to operate and is obviously good quality. Ours has a multi-point lock which added to the cost but you can tell it is very secure. The screen is heavy duty as well. It's been installed for 3 years and, with the exception of needing to have the rollers adjusted once (due to the installer) it has been smooth sailing.

Beautiful to look at AND use
Milgard Windows are both beautiful to look at, and to use...featuring quality construction at a reasonable/good price point, we are absolutely THRILLED with Milgard's Tuscany Series.
We replaced 15 windows in our 23 year old home with Milgard's and the QUIETNESS of the windows, not to mention their insulating capabilities are both noteworthy....
Even BETTER - Milgard CUSTOM designed a combination fixed-pane/slider window in an unusual trapezoidal shape for us in approximately two weeks for only a couple hundred extra for the fixed pane option - now we have the attractive shape, larger window AND ventilation for our loft-space buildout. KUDOS to Milgard for not batting an eye at our semi-custom request!!!
We are HUGE Milgard fans, and highly recommend their products!

Beautiful sliding doors!
Bought an 8 foot slighter off craigslist that was pulled out of a home getting remodeled. It was really easy to install and looks beautiful. easy to slide and has insulated very well this summer. I'm working on upgrading all my windows and doors with the Tuscany series. Thanks, Milgard!!

What an improvement
We bought a house about 13 months ago and it had 40 year old aluminum windows. I didn't know how poorly they'd aged when we purchased the house. There was one heat wave last summer that was so bad the house got up to 90 degrees inside. Then the Fall came and the windows would rattle in the Santa Ana winds. It would keep us awake and it was obvious that they were not really keeping the wind out. All of the windows would rattle anytime we slammed the front or back door.
Finally we decided to look into purchasing the new windows in March. We found the Tuscany series windows and the sales rep from a local supply company highly recommended these. She said it would keep the house more comfortable, the noise level would go down and they'd look great. They were more than we thought, but based on the reputation of Milgard and their warranty, we decided to use the Tuscany windows.
Indeed, the noise level was noticeable different. The windows also have a slight tint, so the sunlight is not so bright. I really like the quality of the light coming through. Our summer, so far, has been much more comfortable. Our electric bills seem about the same, though. They also look wonderful. I'm so glad we purchased these.
I was skeptical because the supplier and the installer said the installation of the whole house could be done in a day. It's true! In fact, they came at 7 AM and were done by 3PM.

I purchased these windows to replace a one piece window on the second story of our house. We did this for ease of cleaning and allowing air flow in that area of the house. The windows look nice and are easy to clean because of the double hung feature. The counter balance and the locking system work very well. The only concern I have is possibly with the quality, although it may be unfounded. My reasons for concern are that one of the windows I received had a broken frame and the frame seemed thin. I also get a lot of flexing in the frame when I push on the tab to open the top window. I'm concerned that it may crack over time. On the positive, the company replaced the window without issue and we also liked that we could get the outside of the window painted in brown. So far we are very happy with these windows and would highly recommend them.

I love my Milgard Windows

great products, great service
I have two 6' by 3.5' double hung vertical slider windows, self installed. These are tempered and 1 size thicker than normal for extra noise reduction. These windows are very easy to open. My 87 year old 105 lb grandma recently proved that by playing with one, just to prove she could. Highly recommended. Great look. Durable surface. Easily cleaned. Ease of operation.

Changed the entire residence to these windows. Great looking, slide and lock easy

Thank you for a great Product.

This product is the nicest window I've seen.
I recommend these quiet, easy sliding, beautiful looking windows to anyone who needs a replacement and doesn't want the window area changed or removed. These fit right into the space where the old windows were. They look terrific!

Excellent Replacement Windows
We replaced our existing wooden windows in our 1987 home with the Tuscany windows and are very happy with them. It's great to have the improved energy efficiency as well as the ease of use. With the inserts these windows nicely replaced the look of our divided windows in our Colonial style home. Cleaning our old windows on the second story was a difficult and dangerous task while with these new windows it's a easy task that we'll no doubt do MUCH more often. They quickly and gently open inward and with the dividers now enclosed inside the glass they're a breeze to clean.

Love these sliders!
We purchased a whole house of Milgard wood clad replacement windows and three sliding glass doors. The sliding glass doors are the highlight. They are beautiful and are made to look like french doors. Sliding glass doors can be so unattractive, and these are beautiful. They slide nicely, and we are extremely happy with them.
The only problem with them is that the rollers tend to break easily. They should be made out of a stronger material. The warranty does cover this though.
