Concerned about excessive outdoor noise? Get the utmost protection against noise with our Sound Control Windows.
  • Argon/Air Mix – Optional argon gas, used between panes, is also available to further improve thermal performance.

Dramatically increase your home's curb appeal by being creative with our virtually endless grid options. Select grid choices placed inside our insulated glass units for easiest window cleaning.

Every window project is different. It's hard to provide an accurate cost range as a house can vary greatly in the number and size of its windows. Costs also depend on the frame material and glass options. Double and triple-glazed windows, or those filled with argon gas, increase energy savings but add to initial upfront costs. Often government or power company incentives include additional tax deductions or rebates for making energy-saving improvements to your home. These incentives may significantly reduce a project's total costs. You may be pleasantly surprised to discover how affordable a window replacement project can be.

Beautiful wood interior We bought both fixed and double hung windows, but there's really not much to say about a fixed window, except it's really nice you can order just about any size you want. The windows are exceptionally pretty, with a very nice fine-grained Douglas Fir on the inside. The grids tend to be a little coarser grain wood, but not a problem - still pretty. The exterior are white fiberglass, which matches the white vinyl on the older part of the house. We had custom grids on some of the windows, and after a couple back and forth communications with our lumber yard representative to assure the measurements were correct, the windows were built to our specifications, and look great. The only caveat with the fancy grids is that all that wood needs to be finished, which is tedious. The windows seem to operate fine, although we are still under construction, so haven't been using them much yet. I assume with a vinyl construction and wood veneer, these windows will withstand our typically cool foggy conditions better than 100% wood. March 21, 2013
Treat Yourself You Won't Be Sorry I purchased the Milgard sliding glass door that is fiberglass and wood-clad. First of all, it looks spectacular! This slider was installed on a sun-facing side of my home which bakes in the summer. I can honestly say, that with the extra sun shield options that I also added, that this same room is NOTICEABLY cooler in the summer. So much so that I don't have to turn the air conditioner on as much as I used to. And did I mention how gorgeous it is?? Oh yeah, I did, but I love looking at it. So classy. My only suggestion is to be sure to hire Milgard certified installers. The two men who installed my slider were very clean and competant, but some months later it was brought to my attention that they did not use the right material to cover the nail holes, so it got gooey when the weather heated up. I had this taken care of myself and all is as it should be now. The other thing is be careful around the glass. I had movers bring in some furniture, and they accidentally nicked the glass, so there is a scratch that I notice but no one else does. When it happened my slider was out of warranty for a repair. Lastly, I notice in the winter that the curtains still move slightly in and out, so there is still a bit of drafting in the winter time which sort of surprised me. If you're trying to keep out the cold drafts, this may not be the product. But, if you're trying to fend off unrelenting sun in the Summer, this is the product to buy. I recommend it without hesitation. March 30, 2012
Mechanics issues The woodclad product is very attractive product, however, we continue to have issues with the operation. The 10' sliding glass door is almost impossible to lock and the screens on the same door do not roll, they are very difficult to open and close. We also never received two screen for two of the windows. June 24, 2014
looks good more time has to pass before i can speak of performance. December 4, 2013
Product is easy to maintain and the warranty is excellent. We have had Milgard windows for approximately 10 years and they look as good today as the day they were installed. We recently experienced a seal problem in one window and Milgard replaced the glass under its warranty without question or cost to us. Thank you Milgard. November 14, 2013
Windows and doors do not measure up in harsh environment We purchased a total of 20 Woodclad windows and doors in 2004 for a major renovation of a beachfront house in Waimanalo, Hawaii ,,,, a location where the Pacific trade winds continually deposit salt mist over entire structure. Construction materials were selected to withstand this corrosive environment. The main reason for selecting the Milgard Woodclad series was because of the anticipated durability of the fiberglass construction, the beauty of the wood veneer interior, and the stainless steel hardware. Here is the result after 10 years: 1) the stainless steel hardware has held up exceptionally well, exhibiting essentially no tarnishing. The operating arms on the awning windows had to be replaced (parts provided by Milgard) because of corrosion and failure of the tiny "ball" connector (apparently not stainless steel) that snaps into the plastic track slide attached to the bottom of the window. 2) although the interior fir veneer was stained and then coated with two coats of a marine-grand polyurethane varnish prior to installation, in the most severe locations (the windward side of the house), water has wicked through each joint where the side stiles are joined to the top and bottom stiles. This in effect has allowed water (and salt) to diffuse up the wood grain several inches and deteriorate the varnish coating. As I mentioned this is an extremely harsh environment that has proven to be a problem with almost any wooden window or door. I am in the process of refinishing each of the affected windows and doors ..... taking precautions to prevent salt/water intrusion into these joints. The refinished interiors look great. 3) the frames of each window and door are pultruded fiberglass that is subsequently coated with a white epoxy finish on the exterior. Over the 10 year period, the white epoxy finish has deteriorated to the extent that it is very friable and in the extreme cases is flaking off the fiberglass substructure .... or in painter's terms, it is "chalking". The phenomenon appears to be slightly worse in windows exposed to direct sunlight. Obviously, the epoxy coating has degraded. I am in the process of sanding the exterior of all of the windows and doors, and re-coating them with a 2-part marine polyurethane coating. To be fair to Milgard, we live in a very corrosive and oxidizing environment. For windows and doors that are more sheltered, the problems are not nearly as severe. For comparison, conventional alkyd paints and varnishes and some latex paints (even those with a 25-year guarantee) begin to deteriorate after a few years, and colors fade rather quickly. I raise these issues only to make the consumer aware that extraordinary measures need to be taken when building a house in a harsh and corrosive environment. In these cases, the beauty of a varnished wood finish might have to be compromised for the durability of an all plastic (vinyl) or anodized aluminum product..... or be prepared for periodic maintenance and/or complete refinishing.

high quality and good features wood clad fiberglass french doors look good and work well. Wish it could have come already stained but not too hard to do that after the fact. September 10, 2013
Excellent windows. They are attractive, durable and well constructed. I purchased Milgard windows for a new home in 2007 and was extremely pleased. Upon recently selling this home, I purchased a home that needed all new windows. I made a mistake in initially going with an inferior manufacturer and subsequently all 37 windows had to be removed and replaced. There was not a second thought as to purchasing Milgard for the replacement. I should have trusted my instincts the first time as I an extremely pleased with the outcome. I have no doubt I will enjoy years of satisfaction. September 10, 2013
