Rated 2 out of 5 by bakerette Pretty looking window with excessive wear
In September 2015, I replaced all my windows and sliders with Milgard Aluminum windows in an Anodized Bronze finish. Initially I loved the windows. They look great in my modern house and seemed to operate fairly well. The rotating latches that hold the screens in place are not extremely durable but that was a minor issue. However, my opinion changed within a few months. On multiple windows the black 'paint' on the hinge began to chip. It seemed to get worse as we began opening and closing the window during spring. This issue will not be covered under warranty. I am pretty disappointed that these windows are looking so rough less than a year after installation. So while I love the look of the windows, I would not recommend them to others due to the excessive wear and tear within a short period of time.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Winslow99 Poor quality and worthless warranty
I live here in Colorado where the wind blows hard in the springtime coupled with rain in sheets. These windows do not hold up and leak after a few years of use. Clearly disappointed with the quality of these windows. I have three windows fog up and you can barely see outside of them. Try another brand…

Rated 5 out of 5 by Les65 This product came in the exact size I ordered
I had Milgard windows installed at my house in California and was very pleased. This time I was installing it myself
so exact fit was crucial, and I got it! Installation was a snap!
I would order again without reservation!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Rosiep Look great from the street and don't have to be painted
The windows look great (except for a few aspects) and operate well. I like the locks except some of mine don't work. The manufacturing quality control is poor. Every single one of my 9 windows have burrs on the ends of the bars for raising the windows. Not only that, since the aluminum was cut after the bronzing, those edges are silver. The customer can color that with a marker, but shouldn't have to. During manufacturing the company chose to square cut off 2 sides of the glass frames rather than miter them and then miter the other corners. In some places where these corners join, you can also see silver. My windows are bronze and were installed with silver colored screws and that shows on the lower frame. I recommend installing the bronze with black screws so that they don't show in the frame. I will have to color those with a maker also because I don't want to replace the screws..

Rated 2 out of 5 by deniq Beautiful door poor design
This is a beautiful 12 foot sliding patio door until it rains. This door is designed to allow water to go under the door and drain along the tracks inside the house. it is like having a little river inside your house when it rains. I replaced a viking 12 slider, thinking this would be a better door. the viking never allow water inside my house. this brings dirt and moisture inside into the tracks . In a heavy rain both channels are filled with water and do not drain quickly at all. Milgard this is the most assinine design I have ever seen. Don't buy this door until it is redesigned. Milgards other doors are designed differently, now I am out thousands of dollars. save your money buy something else.I would have never thought to even ask about water intrusion before I purchased it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Rix729 Not what I expected
Just wanted to touch with some feedback on the windows I just installed for my own project. I'm an architect and builder and take great pride in craftsmanship. I ordered two large aluminum sliders, and some casements. These are the issues I encountered. The 10’ slider was missing the handle set hardware pack, some of the door rubber glazing gaskets we're intalled wrong. All of the casements we’re not closing properly after I installed them. The lock tabs on the operable panel we’re getting hung up on the frame when they closed had to remove them all and grind off a 1/16” to get them to close properly, not what I expect on brand new windows. Also the instructions that came with the sliders are horrible. The photos are in grainy black and white can’t see any detail, assembly diagrams not clear etc. Had to wing most of the installation. Other details like exposed screws on dk bronze doors should be the same color as the frame, not bright zinc. These look horrible and I will be replacing them. Over all they look good but, not what I expected.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Brigitte13 Quick & easy installation
The window is simple to use and provides an insulated alternative to the single pane window it replaced. It matches the other aluminum framed windows we already have. It fits perfectly into the existing decor of our apartment and allows us to inspect the back yard when the local coyotes and wild pigs make noises and need to be shooed away. We love our new window.

It is easy to install and although the instructions are not good, I have installed a few of these, so once you know it is easy.

Rated 3 out of 5 by DisappointedHomeowner Disappointed
Bought a fixed over XO and the bronze aluminum is black in color but the screen frame is bronze. I expected the aluminum to be the color of the scree frame. Also, there is what I believe as a major QA flaw in that the fixed IGU is floating in frame. Other manufacturers that I've used mount the IGU with double sided tape. I have almost 1/4 inch of movement at the center of each frame post. Only thing holding IGU is trim and that wasn't eve seated properly. I have more windows to purchase and am looking at other manufacturers at this point.

The corners should be welded... I had to use temporary screws to align the corners while the sealant cured.

Rated 5 out of 5 by wmshawk Amazing products, warranty support and service techs.
We have purchased several new homes and always look at the windows early in the purchase process to be sure they are Milgard.
Not only does it identify a quality window product but helps to determine if a builder is including quality materials in the construction.
Our experience with Milgard also extends to Warranty support for new purchase owners. Recently had 2 stationery panes replaced by Oleg and were pleased with Customer Service personel (Luisa) and with Oleg for the install process.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lou18 Excellent product
After years with single pane windows I installed double pane, low e ones. The difference in heat transmission and noise from the street was immediately obvious. I'm not fond of the reflectiveness, but that is part of the trade off. The frame color bronze is actually black. All told though, the windows are an excellent product, extremely well made and will likely save money in cooling costs over the next seven months.

I am so happy with our new window. It looks great and the quality of the craftsmanship is superb! It functions seamlessly and has really enhanced the overall look of the room. I can't wait to replace more of my windows with this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Gary12 EXCELLENT product and service!
We absolutely LOVE our 17 Milgard windows. Now, we LOVE Milgard's warrantry service, too. We had some sliding hardware replaced on one of our 17 windows. No problem, Milgard's technician took care of the replacement in a professional manner.
Why did we ever wait so long to replace our aluminum frame windows?
They look WONDERFUL and function perfectly. Milgard provides excellent value for every dollar spent. Actually, I don't understand how Milgard provides such an excellent product for the price.
If I knew how good Milgard windows were earlier, I would have replaced our original windows 20 years ago.
Milgard, keep doing what you're doing!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Shoobe Great Product
We're very happy with our decision to go with a Millgard patio door. It is a wonderful improvement to our home. The construction of the door is very impressive, it is very solid and gives you a secure feeling. We looked in the big box stores, but they had nothing close to this door. We like the product so much that we decided to replace all of our windows with Millgard windows. Our installers were very professional as well. They did a great job, even cleaned up. I would recommend Millgard too all. Thank You

Nice looking window that was easy to install and matched the other windows perfectly. The only thing is it slides open better than all the old windows. Solid buy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Brugge Overall window good except something inside glass
Overall impression of window good. I had the window installed and placed the front siding around it before I cleaned the glass. After cleaning I noticed a one inch long 1/16th inch wide mark which is located inbetween both pieces of glass. I initially thought it was part of one of the stickers but found out it is not. I will be able to give a better review after I find out what Milgard will do to fix my issue.

Our Milgard windows will need to be replaced sooner than I would normally believe is needed usually.
Nearly half of the Milgard windows in our home show signs of moisture collection inside the two panes. Looks as if it is raining on cloudless days. Previous homes w/o Milgard never exhibited this problem with similar two-layer panes of similar age and environment. I believe Milgard has fundamental quality issue.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Dande Windows a disappointment
First, the single hung windows are not the right proportion. Wanted 1/3 opening and 2/3 fixed on top. Best they could do is 40% opening and 60% on top fixed, or at least that's what ASAP told us. Window arrived and put in but three largest windows were 50% opening with 50% on top fixed. Waited for correct windows to arrive. ASAP screwed up siding on second installation and one of the three window in front of the house does not open properly. We were also promised that the windows would have locks so they could be left partially open and secure at night. This is apparently not possible with theses windows. Have notified ASAP but have not heard a word back from them since the final bill was paid. We would do it all differently if we could. On a positive note, bedroom installation required modification to framing and this was done professionally. Now we are left wondering; we still have more windows and sliding doors to install but we are rethinking the product and the provider. Very disappointed overall.

Rated 5 out of 5 by cmcb Our new patio door is a great improvement over the old one.
We replaced our old aluminum patio door because it was letting in too much cold air. The new Milgard one looks similar, but is much more solid, slides more smoothly, locks more easily, and keeps the cold air out. It looks and performs much better than vinyl.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Barbara57 Great product and warranty
My windows are actually 11 years old. They are the original windows I had put in the house when it was built. One of them had become difficult to open. I contacted Milgard regarding fixing it and found out the warranty would cover it. The service tech was wonderful and it was fixed in no time. Fast response all the way around. Would definitely recommend.

Had the panes replaced twice since 2003 & they are leaking again. Now they will not do anything about it. Will never buy Milgard again. When we remodel the kitchen, will rip it out & buy a different brand.

We installed these windows on a new home build in the Colorado mountains. Great selection for rooms with views and the need for functional air movement throughout house. Have worked perfectly since day one. We are now in year 9.
Milgard's warranty is what sold us on their product as we live in a remote area and sometimes difficult to find reliable contractors. They have backed their product. Would highly recommend.
We love our windows!!

One of the best sliding doors on the market today. Sleek slim frames and dark bronze give this a great modern feel. Glide like butter. I'm an architect and needed something budget appropriate for my own home. I've specified Milgard frequently for clients and finally got to try them on my own home. Very pleased.
