Horizontal Slider Windows
Montecito replacement window and Pure View screens, wonderful!
We replaced our old aluminum windows that allowed heavy condensation to develop mold with great new vinyl windows. What a difference! Now we have a product that is beautiful. We enjoy having the Low E glass and the Pure View screens. They bring in more light and are so clear. no longer have to worry about little bugs getting thru the screens, either. Definitely liked the full lifetime warranty. Miller Glass here in Chico, Ca has a great selection of Milguard products.

Window and slideing glass door warped
My new home is 9 years old, both my sliding glass door and now my dining room window have warped....when I complained on the door they told me the builder installed it wrong and did NOTHING!! The builder filed bankruptcy, so had to replace the door with a different brand by myself. Beware of the low quality of Milguard

vent stops prevent smooth operation / service is a joke
Vent stops prevent smooth operation (installed by pros recommended by Milgard).
Screen service is on 3 months now.

I moved into my house when it was barely 5 years old and the windows have been terrible since day one! They have broken seals and I am forced to put plastic coverings on all my windows in the winter because you can feel a breeze when sitting on the couch. The company refuses to fix the broken seals because I am not the original homeowner. These windows were obviously defective when put in or the material is such poor quality that all their products function in this manner. I will be sure to never purchase or recommend this compant to anyone.

comments re: 20 Milgard Tuscanny windows installed in Sept 2010
Biggest complaint: 9 of 20 screens developed crud (rust? paint defect?) beneath paint
(1 window destined for attic never installed due to city diss-allowed)
6 of 20 screens are "warped" require great effort to install / remove w/o damage
Most screen corners are not "rigid" indicating poor fabrication / workmanship
16 of 80 little rubber button self adhesive spacer window channel guides fell off, so far
water "drain slits" fill up with dust & outdoors debris causing channel puddle when it rains (live So Calif near beach W.Torrance, seldom rains) but it is in dry times crud accumulates
I miss former spacious inside ledge space for nick-knacks, lost converting from previous framed originals of Wood (all were vertical double hung, which I prefer for flow around air ventilation ) & Aluminum (all horiz with spacious ledges & fullest viewing area), the replacement vinyl window see through area is much reduced due to the 4 edge extra wide vinyl border glass supports
(unless old opening modified, reframe to increase by ~2" on ea of 4 sides ,i.e. lost 4" horizontal & 4" vertical glass viewing area)
I qualified & applied for a $475 Milgard rebate, but received only $200, with no explanation offered after several calls + note from the place I'd made purchase, I eventually gave up. I asked for rebate for 19 ea x $25 ea =$475 (for 19 of 20 purchased 20th "bonus" from store)
While displeased with these problems,
the windows do serve their purpose and were initially deemed cost effective in my retirement. (i.e. if you don't include having to replace 9 screens within a year)
The double panes effectively reduce noise and heat loss (high reflectivity coating on south windows)

Not sure if we are completely happy yet
Just had ours installed a few weeks ago and have the outside condensation as well. Also have water inside the windows on the track when it rains. It seems to go away on its own. If this is a feature of the windows we were not told this and are waiting to hear back from installers. Is it self draining or something?

Very disappointed in outside condensation and appearance.
I had all of my windows replaced, and am quite disappointed. In the morning there is outside condensation on the windows. In order to see out clearly, I would need to go outside and wipe the windows each mornings. I don't have time to do so, and the windows get dirty.
In addition, the grey-brown color that I chose actually makes the house look cheap and plastic

I would like to be contacted by Milgard as there is condensation on one of my brand new windows. I would like for it to be replaced.
