Rated 3 out of 5 by biggyrx overall product would receive a b+
Upon unpacking our window, our professional contractor with some 25 years experience pointed out that the spring loaded locking mechanism was not aligned properly.
With further investigation we could see that the strike plate was not aligned so that the locking bar could not insert appropriately. I called Rafael Lumbar and no one called back (actually they did, after 7 days). Our contractor took it upon himself to access the problem area, file down the striker, and all worked well. The reason I choose Milgard was to avoid this type of poor manufacturing quality.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Milgardbuyer66 A great product at a very reasonable price.
This is our third Milgard window. They look great, but, more importantly, they work great! Our electric bills have lowered since installing them. The difference in the temperature in our western exposure living room is huge, especially June-August. We're in the Phoenix area, so it's imperative that the window do its job in keeping the heat out. Milgard delivers! The window gets only slightly warm to the touch, whereas our old single pane would practically burn your hand. They slide easily and we especially like the locking system - very easy to use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by FussyHomeowner Outstanding Products; Outstanding Service!
Twenty years ago we had Milgard windows installed in our home - twenty in all. They have withstood the test of time. A few developed vapor between the two panes of glass. I called Milgard. After 20 years, I was expecting a runaround. I sent Milgard an email describing the problem. I received a call the next day, but was unable to respond to it due to a business trip. The Salt Lake City office called consistently to arrange a service call. Needless to say, I was astounded. The extraordinarily courteous and polite service person arrived at my home as promised, and on time. He inspected the windows and measured the defective ones. He promised to return in two weeks and replace the windows. Another surprise; two weeks later an installation technician arrived on time, and replaced the defective windows. While doing the work he pointed out that his colleague had overlooked one of the windows; one could hardly see the vapor. He returned two weeks later to replace that window. There are few companies in America, that will enthusiastically service their products, under warrantee, after two decades of service.
I will never use any window or door products in the future other than Milgard. Competitors products may be less expensive, but wait until there is a problem. You will quickly wish you had invested a few more dollars in Milgard's product. Milgard's products and service, are , in my very strong opinion, the standard by which all other window companies should be judged.
Well done Milgard for coming through on your warrantee after two decades, without hesitation. When Milgard says "lifetime warrantee," they mean it! That's why I will be a "lifetime" supporter of Milgard.

Had been dealing with draft from our son's room from pre-existing window installed incorrectly. Didn't want to deal with the issue again and skimp on quality. Milgard Tuscany slider window looks absolutely fantastic! Love it!

It's only been one day, but the windows look Great and I'm excited to see just how energy efficient they are. If there is one small thing to be aware of, that should only affect your decision if you're a Crazy cat person; the retrofit windows took away about 2"-3" of our inside window sill, where our cats like to sit. I think they'll figure it out and get use to it.

I couldn't be happier, after installing all the windows and two sliders in my house with help from a friend. They were very easy to install and had fun doing it. I saved myself quite a bit of money . Thanks Milgard Windows !

Rated 4 out of 5 by BobbyD Very, very good windows
My Milgard windows, both sliders and casement, were replacement windows, and they are good looking and work well. I used "new construction" windows and they have greatly improved the appearance of my kitchen and baths. They operate smoothly and for the cost, you can't go wrong with these windows.

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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Nick1111 Great Value
Replacing windows was something I waited on for some time, right at the edge of what I felt comfortable doing myself. After getting shocked at quotes for installation, I tackled this myself, replacing 6 old steel single pane sliders with Milgard style line sliders. In general the installation was easy, with the only knock on Milgard being that I wish they took the extra few minutes to clean off the glazing and consistenly put the windows on bumpers so I didn't have to worry about scratching the vinyl setting the windows down.
In operation they work tremendously better than the replaced windows, no duh, but they look pretty good, which for cheap replacement windows gave a good bang for the buck. I was looking for the slimmest vinyl product, and the Style line seemed like a good fit. We'll see if they hold up and if the seals last on the dual panes.
In the end this was a simple and satisfying DIY project, with a cost comparable to to replacing say 500 SF of carpet with laminate (for the 6 windows I did). The renters did appreciate the new windows a lot. I felt this was worth it and the Milgard product worked well for me. Buying it at Lowe's, with their customer service worked very well in addition.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MajorMud these windows look great
From the first meeting with our sales rep to the day of installation we felt confident in our decision to purchase 11 new windows for our home. I am in the construction trades and Milgard stands out for top notch design and appearance. The dealers own installers were courteous clean and paid attention to every detail of our job. I am extremely satisfied with the install and performance and looks of our new windows, Southgate Glass of Sacramento should be accommodated for their eccellence in product knowledge and performance.

Great upgrade from builder grade aluminum egress windows. Basement retains much more heat especially in the sub freezing weather we've had.
Millard accidentally sent slider with wheels on top ( must have been made on a Friday) But they have made efforts to replace it, and should be ready this week.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ADAMZ Great windows
This is the third house I've bought and installed Milgard windows for in the past fifteen years. I'm not a contractor but have some mechanical and woodworking experience so I found the installation not to hard, the old window removal the toughest part. As for the windows I still live in the first house I installed windows in ey still work as new, there is a little hazing of the vinyl on the South exposure but should clean up if I wanted to have a project.
Overall I'm very happy with the windows.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Pwest They are beautiful!
I am beyond happy with my new Windows. For a long time this needed to be done to this house. The old aluminum framed ones were the original and the did not open and close without a great deal of work. They also leaked. One thing that encouraged me to do this was I laid in bed with my granddaughter one evening and the bed was directly below the window and both of our heads were cold. I am so excited. I took pictures and emailed them to my friends.

Does not shut out the outside noise very well at all; in fact, terrible. Also. the glass panes seem very thin, as you can feel the cool outside air. Will look to replace the investment I made in these windows with a better quality; really disappointed.

We purchased nine medium-high grade vinyl Tuscany double-slide windows from Milgard and are very pleased with the quality of this product (including the installation) and the ease of operation... very happy with this product. The double-slide feature enables exterior window cleaning from inside the house. Excellent value for price.
