Rated 1 out of 5 by DissatisfiedOwner Windows will not open; some won't latch
We specified top quality double-hung windows to our builder to be installed in the house we built in Grand Junction, CO and were assured that Milgard windows were the best available. While the solar heat gain performance and noise abatement of the windows has been impressive, we have three windows that can not be latched/locked, and ALL the windows in the house are virtually impossible to open (which somewhat helps alleviate personal safety concerns about the windows that don't latch - ha, ha!). We would not recommend buying/installing these particular Milgard windows.

Rated 4 out of 5 by db123 Will take some getting used to.
The windows seem to be a little higher than before - I think because there is less window. I look forward to how much more heat they hold in in the cooler months.

The window looks nice and I like how easy it opens. I do wish the windows folded in for easy cleaning since it was installed on the second floor. Overall it looks like a quality built product. I guess time will tell.

We replaced our bedroom windows with the Montecito Triple Glazed - Tan (but it's more of a Taupe color) but we love the quietness of the triple pane & love the new color and the quality is great too, very happy and as we remodel the rest of the house will be replacing all the windows with them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Johnny2354 Great product
We designed and built our home 12 years ago from the ground up. We had many choices on windows however after visiting the factory and meeting the people behind the product we opted for Milgard vinyl windows. So 12 years later the windows look like new but being single hung a few were getting a bit sticky. One call to Milgard and they responded quickly and courteously and were in and out quickly and on time. I must admit they truly stand behind their lifetime warranty. Being in aerospace manufacturing I truly appreciate the quality.

We have used Milgard single hung, awning, and sliding windows as well as sliding doors. The locking system is easy and secure. The sliding and the single hung windows can also be locked from the outside. The sliding glass doors came assembled, ready to install. The new style of screen on the awning windows are a big improvement.

This window is awesome. It allows for clear viewing and the glass shelf is adjustable, so it can be adjusted so that it won't block your view. Alpine Glass was reliable, clean and wonderful to work with. I would recommend them to anyone wanting windows or shower enclosures installed.

They took longer then they were supposed to and should have reflected the price of the windows for the extra time. I am sorry does not work in my book.

Rated 4 out of 5 by DoorHanger Single hung window
I have always had a good impression of Milgard windows but this one made me question the quality of workmanship. It seems the spring is tighter on one side than the other. When the window is down, it sits slightly crooked in the frame. Other than that, I like it

Rated 4 out of 5 by Rt1231 Excellent service, good value product
Installed 15-20 dark bronze Montecito vinyl windows in a new 800 sq ft studio in coastal area of BC. Received excellent service from local dealer and from Milgard both during ordering process and then with a few warranty issues. We were very pleased with the price/quality equation. Chose the higher quality screens for a modest uptick in price and this was well worth it. The upgraded screens are almost invisible to the naked eye. We had a bit of an issue with minor paint defects on quite a few windows. A specialised painter was despatched to site for a day and he left the windows in perfect condition. A couple of large opening windows appeared to sag a bit in extreme summer heat. Windows were expertly pulled apart and rebuilt onsite. Next summer will be the final test on this issue. We're very happy, subject to this last issue proving to have been resolved.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Joe5280 These windows are garbage
Installed by the builder of our house (Richmond Homes). We are the second owner so of course no honor of the warranty. Every window in our house has some problem within 7 years of construction. Leaks, drafts, warping, condensation. Don't waste your money on these.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Navywife Not happy
Very very disappointed in the glass shelf. In the picture it looks like it has a white encasement BUT it does not. The glass itself is very thin and if you touch it it will shake. Not too sure if I will be able to put light weight items on it. If I had to do it all over again I would NOT select this window.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Zsuzsa Really love the locks on these windows
These windows did a fabulous job updating the energy efficiency in my post WW II home, without changing the essential look of the house, which was something that I was very interested in. I bought an older home because of the way it looks. These new windows absolutely fit with my vision for my home.

Used to replace an older window that had lost its seal. I had already replaced all of our other windows in the house with Milgard and liked the product so purchased another for this replacement.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Simba Product is fine. Milgard is not
The Milgard Montecito line is fine and I have purchased many in the past ( I am a home builder). My problem is with Milgard. They lost my window order between sales and production. They admitted this. Instead of moving my order to the front of production to make up for THEIR mistake they just put me at the back of the line-5 weeks. I asked them if this had happened to one of their major accounts would they have been treated the same-they said yes! I believe millgard is lying as they would not be in business if they treated the big guys in this manner. Go with Jeld-Wen!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Helper789 This product is very good quality
We have purchased milgard in the past to replace single pain windows that we had in our brick home that was built in 1984. What a difference.!! We did a lot of research before our purchase. We went to the 2 big box home improvement stores, local to businesseach and we went to the phx home & garden show. We wanted to gather as much information as we could before making our purchase. So with our second home it was a no brainer to purchase milgard windows again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Double7 The windows have great features.
Love the windows. Very easy to open and close. Nice clean lines. Life time warranty is a bonus. Our salesman, Daryl Truitt was very informative and had some good suggestions. The price of the windows was not the lowest, but we liked the way we were treated and Daryl was "Johnny on the spot". Good experience all around. We have already recommended Milgard to friends that are building a new home.

by Steph2011 good quality good price
So far so good. Installed a sliding door in a garage door opening. Eight foot wide, we chose a wider door so the molding would fit reasonably in the nine foot opening , and I like the wider opening for accessibility. The six foot only opens to 28 inches. The eight foot opens to fit a walker or wheel chair easily, if needed. The locking handle is OK. You have to do it in one full motion, Shut and push handle to lock. You can't lock it later without reopening it . Not sure why, it just seems to be part of the connecting motion.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Nancy63 Beautiful window
This our second window purchase from Milgard for our home. My husband was a builder and used Milgard in the homes he built. When we decided to remodel our living room 10 years after the initial construction, we were happy to find that we were able to order another window to match the original ones. We did not have to change all of them. It matched very well. They offer great service. When we needed a repair, many years after installation, they sent two knowledgeable guys to change out the glass. No charge.
