Rated 5 out of 5 by FlyingBill This is quiet efficiency.
Energy Guard of Newberg Oregon installed all fifteen of my windows a couple of days ago so, I can't verify the energy efficiency precisely but the heating system is not running as much. The biggest value to me is the quiet. I live two houses from a busy city street which now sounds like five houses away from that noise. I really appreciate the noise reduction. Solid beefy windows, a real pleasure and professionally installed with no annoying evidence that they were here. Many thanks.

Rated 4 out of 5 by GregS do these wonderful windows out-gas for a while?
in the rooms where we installed the windows, a white oily dust seems to film up the horizontal surfaces fairly regularly. seems to be the same sheen as the window frame color-so not sure. would really like to get some opinions thoughts or research if you would, please! Greg S.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Maxx Great warranty....
Spoke to Donna and she provided excellent customer service. I had a spring thing go on the side of the window, and they will fix ASAP
After living in a rain forrest on Vancouver Island for the past 8 years these windows are almost as good the day they went in. Dry as a bone. Trust me pay a bit more more and you will get quality. I learned the hard way with my old house. I will ALWAYS buy Milgard because of the quality and service. Thanks again Donna. Oh yeah a real live person even answered the phone when I called. Maxx

Rated 4 out of 5 by peter1 Impressions of Monntecito style windows and sliders
Nice product and a company that stands by their "full lifetime warranty". All my windows and sliders in my eight year old home are Milgard Montecito. Good quality and sturdy windows for my house that sits on a hillside that gets strong winds and rain.
My only issue with these windows is the glass energy tint. There is a slight green tint that tends to transmit a greenish hue throughout the house, walls and all. I personally would not choose energy glass with this color tint in it again.
Would have given the product five stars but because of the sometimes annoying tint, I will reserve it to four stars. For this reason, if I were building a new home, I would not select any high efficiency glass that has this slight green tint to it. I would only choose a product with glass that has another tint to it. If Milgard were not to offer that option, I would choose anther product.
Overall a good reliable product form an excellent company.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Bethy a couple of complaints/observations
There should be a way of locking the slider mid position so it can be open but not enough to allow an intruder. We live ground level.
The glue used to affix your Milgard stickers is too hard to remove. I was told not to use Goo Gone.
Any suggestions? Thank you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DDDC Replaced an old and leaking garden window with a new Milgard garden window.
We cannot speak highly enough of Leslie, Mike, Manuel and Ozzie, with Puget Sound Window & Door Inc. and how pleased we are with the new garden window and the professional way it was installed. The care and expertise shown in the removal of the old garden window, the modification of the trim work and installation of the new garden window were quite impressive. We have nothing but praise for Leslie; she came out and took the initial measurements and handled the sale, for Mike, who followed up and completed the critical measure and for Manuel and Ozzie, they did the installation work, they were kind, skilled and perfectly in sync working with one another.
We have had many projects done over the years and found Puget Sound Window & Door Inc., to be a remarkable company to work with. The truly respectful, caring and thoughtful way that they interacted with us and the perfection of the service and quality of the window went above and beyond our expectations. We would not hesitate in the least to recommend them to anyone interested in window replacement or repair.
A job well done, just doesn't say enough!

Rated 5 out of 5 by TransplatedTexan2621 NICE WINDOWS WITHOUT SPENDING A FORTUNE.
We spent 2 years researching windows and decided to go with Milgard. As for pricing, Milgard Montecito windows are not at the bottom, nor are they at the top. In the middle and allowed us to be able to replace all windows and sliders in house without having to take out a second mortgage. Some estimates we received were outrageous. We replaced slider windows with casements and have replaced a standard slider and also a 12' slider. The screens could be a bit more substantial, but just have to take care with them. The casement windows are elegant from the outside and inside. They add an updated modern look to our 1986 tri-level house, which is a huge change from its out-of-date aluminum windows. Have noticed a reduction in outside noise. Overall, very pleased with our purchase and hopeful the windows last for years to come.

Rated 2 out of 5 by digger warranty not what it is cracked up to be
I bought these windows because of the warranty,when you call you get voice mail telling you someone will contact you within 24 to 48 hours don't hold your breath doesn't happen.After doing all the legwork for them to find the invoice #s they needed they set up a repair guy to come out,I had told them of problems with a casement and a large double hung the tech only was told about one.He adjusted the casement and it worked when he left but two days later you have to push it shut from the outside to close it all the way, the double hung was a little out of plumb the carpenters re squared it but it still has a upper sash that drops down on its own when you unlatch the window.I called warranty again said it would be 35 days to get rescheduled, the service guy in the Midwest services at least 6 states by himself, what a joke give Pella a good look before buying these.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Horserider Locking Latch
At times, it is difficult to get to get the locking latch to lock/click in place. I had a serviceman come out and demonstrate, which was good, but the window does not consistently lock with ease.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Michelle51 Good windows not great screens
We built a house and used all single hung windows except in the kitchen, which are the crank style. Windows are nice, but the crank window handle falls off. We really like the smooth glide of the single hung windows. We upgraded to the pure view screens, which look great, but half of them are starting to tear already (we installed around Jan or Feb if I remember correctly). The tears are near the corners and other than removing them once have not been handled much. We have a huge sliding door which is beautiful as well t, but we just cleaned it after construction was finally complete and noticed that the glass is pitted in several places. The glass was protected and not damaged during construction, so we think it could be a flaw in the glass. Also the screen door on that slider was kind of flimsy and when someone pushed it accidentally, the screen tore out of the side and bottom. Not sure what can be done, but we will be contacting Milgard next week about the slider flaws. Other than that we would strongly recommend this product and love the windows.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Yeppa Shelf supports deflect
We are very happy with our garden window appearance which was installed a month ago.however the top shelf deflects about 1/4" on a 48" shelf span with 10#'s placed mid span. The installer even bent the support and put a 3/8" crown in it but it flattened out just with the weight of the glass shelf. My old garden window which was 35 years old didn't have this problem. After spending about $1200 on this window we feel that the shelf glass supports are misdesigned. So far milgard warranty/service hasn't offered a fix.

Rated 5 out of 5 by beryl Love the warranty
Replaced all my windows several years ago. Did one side at a time. One window had a problem with the inset grid. Milgard came right out and repaired it for no charge. Exceptional customer service. Would never buy any other type of window.

Rated 5 out of 5 by HappyCarolyn 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.

Rated 3 out of 5 by msolis Average, but not happy with the bright thick trimming around the windows. What to do?
we purchased the windows from lowes. I was excited about the arrival and then the installation date. the problem we had was the appearance of the bright white trim. My husband was not happy about the brightness. I did like the window but I tend to agree with my husband. we were not aware that the appearance would be so noticeable. we are the only ones in my neighborhood with such bright white trimming. Trying to find ways to detract. any ideas?

I called for service and your crew came out and changed out the window which seal had failed.
You came for a recheck on my request and pointed out a problem for me which was unrelated to the window change out in how I had made the supports for the garden Window. I was blocking the weep hole which is on the bottom.
Thanks for the help,

Rated 2 out of 5 by StillDisappointed The hinge/slider arm broke
One of the hinge/sliders broke and would not be replaced by Milgard even though they "stand behind their product." Then they would not provide replacement and made me find it on my own.

by NewhomeOwnerInKS Tell your builder to go with another manufacturer!
We just built a house and the builder installed Milgard windows in the house. If I would have known the windows would have such poor performance, I would have told the builder to go with a different manufacturer.
The main problem with the windows is that they leak air very badly. On a cold day i have Ice on the inside of house on the majority of my windows. It appears this is due to no seal between the window and the frame. Also, the amount of air current that comes from the track leads to frost on the vinyl frame. It’s sad, but we are going to have to replace the windows on our new house in the very near future.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Wendi Difficult and loud to close.
When I heard we were getting Milgard windows, I was very excited. Once installed, I was not impressed. Caulk left in corners on the outside. Have to slam to engage the lock and the lock itself makes an extremely loud click. Opening is OK. Not sure how these got the arthritis foundation stamp of approval except for the really small windows, they are fine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Butterfly66 Love these windows. Such a wonderful frame and the glass is so very clear.
The windows are so very nice and we already notice the temp difference. And the sound proof it also gives us. The new windows are just fabulous and we are so glad we went with your product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by wooly Always a quality product
I can usually only find one small little defect in any window ordered from Milgard. As picky as I am, most folks might not even notice it. I'm sure the quality control is better than ever. I find I can't go wrong with Milgard windows.

Rated 1 out of 5 by foggypanes Not the durability I expected...
Of 7 double-pane slider windows installed in 2010, the seals on 3 have failed by 2013. Milgard has been very good about installing replacements. But that is not nearly the kind of durability I expected.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Hoppes Top Notch Waranty repair.
Ordered and installed several Millgard windows about 6 years ago. One of the sliders developed a leak and clouded over several months. Went online to report a service problem. A Milgard repairman was scheduled within 7 days. He arrived on time, had a new widow with him and had the total repair and replacement done within 15 minutes. No arguments, charges, or extras. Every other company should take a lesson of Milgard's waranty and repair!!

by RichardF97221 We built a home on Mt. Hood and we are thrilled with our Migard Windows
We have 26 Milgard windows in our new home and they are fantastic. Our house was a Lindal Kit with a 30 ft grand room that came with factory cedar windows. We chose Migard for all of the other living space, basement, bathroom, laundry and bedrooms and we are thrilled. They look great, we had one small problem and the technician came out and fixed the window within 24 hours. It turned out the window was fine and the contractor had dripped some clear sealant that looked like a chip. The sealant scraped off and we were good to go!

Rated 5 out of 5 by songuy Energy and sound abatement is a plus
We ordered 7 windows. Three facing the sunrise and 4 facing sunset. We got the Argon filled double pane all around with their highest energy protection on the sunset facing windows. Replacing 1971 era aluminum frame single pane windows.
I live in Reno where temps are as low as -15 in the winter and 106 in summer. The ability to mitigate the extreme temps are so appreciated. Our house has been much easier to control indoor climate.
An added and unlooked for plus was the windows ability to dampen outdoor noise. Lawn Mowers and trimmers as well as noisy neighbors are greatly reduced.
We had one window that had a minor flaw in the glass, another screen didn't quite fit properly. Milgard quickly responded and corrected both issues without hassle.
