Picture Windows

Open up your living space with a picture window, allowing light and views of the outdoors into your home.


Picture windows are fixed windows that do not open. They are usually installed in difficult to reach places to let in light. For unobstructed views where ventilation is not a concern, picture windows are ideal. Picture windows create a portrait-like space on walls - hence the word "picture" in their name. Picture windows are also a popular choice for letting in natural light without cold air in areas of a room that may be most susceptible to drafts. 

In picture windows, insulated glass is a great option for added performance and increased comfort in the home. Insulated glass is a combination of two or more panes of glass with a hermetically sealed air space between them. Optional inert gases like argon or krypton may be used between panes to further improve thermal performance and energy savings.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Great For Significantly Reducing Traffic Noise Just had Quiet Line window installed in our bedroom that faces busy road in The Woodlands, TX. Window significantly reduced the noise, enough that I no Ionger have to run sound machine or house fan to block the noise and can sleep soundly. Very happy with window. I was concerned about how double, double pane window would look, but it looks fantastic. I looked for several years for the best solution for the traffic noise and glad I picked Milgard. Added bonus was that even though we had to resize window opening to be able to use Quiet Line window, it was still priced better than other options we looked at. Authorized Milgard dealer in Houston we used did fantastic job too of installing. Only wish was that Quiet Line windows were made in larger sizes and different shapes so we could replace all our windows with these. January 1, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by These windows make a big difference No--a huge difference. The glare from the sun has been significantly reduced. House feels cooler already. We live in Arizona with windows facing south. Windows look good, feel good, installers were professional. April 20, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great picture window Picture window turned out great for the dining room. All our friends could not believe how the window turned out. They can not stop talking about it. April 3, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product and well priced. We have four large picture windows facing the prevailing winds overlooking Sitka Sound. The Windows look great and are weather tight. The winds routinely blow 50 miles an hour right into them. So far, no problems. March 7, 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by 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. March 1, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by 5050 picture window with low-e glass Very clean appearance. Only took one installer to install a very large window, and the installer, Blue, did a very good job. I like the fact that the window tinting is on the inside of the glass and not on the outside work to be scratched. Very nice look ! February 24, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Beautiful window. Great energy efficiency. Quiet. This was a commercial job not residential. Very happy with the look of the window. Amazing to sit by the window on a cold day and not feel the cold through the window. Our customers like the look and the feel as well. February 19, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Corner fit The corners should be welded... I had to use temporary screws to align the corners while the sealant cured. February 19, 2016
