Milgard Windows & Doors recently launched an entirely new way for visitors to shop for Milgard products that is centered on the unique individual consumer and the personal way they want to shop for windows. Consumers can now navigate, explore and learn about products based on Window Style, Frame Material, Milgard Series, or Architectural Style. With new product content, photo galleries, product reviews, and interactive navigation menus, consumers are able to enjoy a customized experience and learn about windows exactly how they want to.
Special attention was also given to the online experience for professionals, architects, builders and contractors. Milgard.com now features and entirely new Professional Resources section. Based on feedback from professional partners, Milgard Windows & Doors delivers an intuitive and comprehensive professional section that features detailed product specifications, BIM objects, CAD drawings and other technical information. Continuing Education Units (CEUs) for Architects and Contractor Loyalty Programs are also easily available within the new Professional Resources Section.
The inability to visualize the beauty of new windows is often one of the greatest hurdles in the window shopping journey. Milgard Windows & Doors has elevated the consumer experience with the launch of the "Milgard Inspiration Center", available exclusively on milgard.com. The Inspiration Center allows users to visualize what new Milgard windows and doors will look like in their own home.
This fun and interactive tool is a new way for consumers to explore the nearly limitless design options that Milgard Windows & Doors offers. Users can select from a wide variety of pre-masked interior and exterior images, or can upload a photo of their own. From there, they can view all Milgard product series and play with the most popular operating styles, configurations, color, grid, and trim options. Users also have the ability to save and share their projects throughout many popular social media websites.
In recent years the number of consumers and window professionals relying on mobile devices has grown exponentially.
