Rated 1 out of 5 by BobSnoqualmie Interior Moisture Problems
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.

Heat collects on the ceiling but this window does not open on the top. A design defect. The architect (me) selected it. I am to blame.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Boston1211 I'm impressed by the product.
I was not interested in Milgard windows in the past. Had seen them installed
in new constructions and they seemed a low quality product. I went in and viewed
the aluminum series. I bought 28 windows and sliders. I was happy to see what the quality of the product received upon delivery.
My building is looking so much better with these new windows and sliders. As we are in very close proximity to a freeway, the improved sound control in the units, is very much appreciated.
I highly recommend Milgard's thermally improved aluminum windows.

Rated 2 out of 5 by kcollette Looks great but beware if you ever plan to open your windows
The positive: These windows are beautiful architecturally. I'm a professional architect and have used these in my own modern home.
The screens must be removed or opened via hinge every single time you want to open your window. It is a huge hassle and the tiny plastic clips that hold your screen frame to the window frame break very easily (mine snapped off after just opening my windows three times.
The window mechanism should be designed so that opening via crank, etc. can be done without having to first open the screen.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 1953Freddy Excellent repairs were done completely.
Our window was installed in the 90s. It was a single hung window. A problem developed over time that caused the window to be difficult to open and close. The repair date was set up and the repair person arrived within the window period. The repair was done expertly and we are very pleased with the results.

Rated 1 out of 5 by TACFA8 Horrible Product!
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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Ceegull Replacement windows
We did our entire house using a number of sizes and features, both horizontal and vertical sliders and patio doors. Most were fully upgraded with sun-coat and argon, etc. and there is no doubt they have significantly lowered our heating and cooling costs. They operate very easily except for one stubborn vertical window that periodically misaligns and needs repair. We went with the dark finish to preserve the Craftsman style of the house and for the most part we are satisfied with the look, except on the narrow side windows right in front of the house. We think the window frame covering is just too wide in proportion, but there is no way to adjust it. We think these windows could be made better, offer more adjustability in terms of where they lock, and how they look, and we wonder why Milgard does not offer an insulated version. These were soooo close to qualifying for the tax deduction (and in other states besides CA, they could have!), just a little extra insulation could have made a difference. Nevertheless, if you don't care for vinyl and do not want to maintain wood, this is your only affordable choice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by mustang64 Great Looking and Efficient
We replaced existing windows (retro-fit) that were falling apart and some were not operable. We are very pleased with our new Milgard Aluminum windows. They operate with ease and block out most of the street noise. We live in a city and off of a boulevard. The look is very sleek as our townhouse is contemporary. We couldn't be more pleased with our choice.

Can't speak highly enough regarding Milguard's warranty and customer service in resolving issues that I have had with my 7x5 picture window. Frankly, you have exceeded my expectations for standing behind your product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 5outta6 You can't beat their warranty service
We have had Milgard replacement windows for so long I can't remember when they were installed. We requested and had warranty service performed a few times in the last couple of years.
Milgard is on company that stands behind their warranty with fast and excellent service.
The service tech was on time and did the job professionally.
I would not hesitate to buy Milgard products again.

We have great milgard vynil windows in our current home. We decided to go with the aluminum for more of a modern look for a new house we are building. BIG MISTAKE...it takes me a long time to open these windows. Sometimes I can't even do it. I have to wait for my husband to help me.Be warned!

No bulky hand piece to push or pull, just grip and press down with ease and window glides open smoothly. Love the low E coating as well to help,reduce heat and glare.

Rated 5 out of 5 by mauleace Lifetime Warranty
We have Milgard windows installed in 1990. Recently submitted a request for service. Although it took awhile to coordinate our schedules, the service representatives were on time and professional. I usually think lifetime warranties are pretty useless as most companies go out of business or find a way to not honor them. Milgard is clearly the exception.
Milgard windows are a good quality window for the price. With the real warranty and service support being the added value.

by Jamin Disappointing function
I am an architect in Portland, Oregon and I built a new house using primarily the aluminum series casements and picture windows. I was excited to find aluminum windows at this price point. I also used Fleetwood thermally broken aluminum widows at three large opennings. The Milgard windows are thermally broken but perform very poorly: High heat loss; poor sealing; poor workmanship on mitered joints; sweating; holes where screens attach; failed sealing at middle mullions. The appearance of the windows is good but the performance is not. I have allready told many folks to avoid this product. In direct comparision the Fleetwood window drastically out perform the Milgard. The Fleetwoods were also approximately 40% more expensive than the Milgards. I would urge Milgard to update their aluminum window series.
