Why Choose Vinyl Windows and Patio Doors?
When considering a window or patio door frame material for a home design project, whether it be a new construction or remodeling project, you’ll be pleased to know that Milgard premium vinyl is extremely durable. It is are non-corroding and perform well in most weather and environmental situations. Vinyl windows don’t require painting and offer great moisture resistance which makes them virtually maintenance-free.
To ensure top quality vinyl products, Milgard extrudes its own frame material using a proprietary compound, and builds its windows to order. Each window series endures a series of rigorous test to ensure product performance, including structural, thermal, water, and forced entry testing.
Featuring Tuscany Series with Bronze Exterior Color Featuring Tuscany Series with White Interior Color
Most vinyl windows and doors are available in white and various neutral colors; however, Milgard developed a new coating technology that includes premium exterior vinyl finishes in 10 exterior and 3 interior colors in addition to standard white, tan, and clay*. Ultraviolet light stabilizers are added to prevent sunlight from degrading the material and causing cracking. This coating technology allows UV rays to pass through the exterior color and reflect off the white vinyl frame, allowing the exterior finish to look new for years.
Milgard offers four vinyl lines, including Tuscany® Series, Montecito® Series, Style Line® Series and Quiet LineTM Series.
It also features even sight lines for a traditional look, and multiple exterior premium vinyl finishes including Bronze and Tweed. Tuscany Series is backed by the Milgard Full Lifetime Warranty which includes parts and labor along with Glass Breakage coverage.
Tuscany Series is available for remodeling projects and new construction and also offers:
Additional operating styles
In-Swing and Out Swing patio doors
More frame types
J- channel & block frame
Slope sill adaptor
Vent stops for Horizontal and Vertical slider windows
Pull rail screens for Horizontal Slider, Single Hung, and Double Hung windows

Style Line Series
Taking a step away from the traditional look of Tuscany Series, Milgard offers a more contemporary profile with Style Line Series. The design allows for more glass and less frame, creating a smooth and sleek look with minimal protruding hardware and slim profile frame. This makes it an excellent aluminum window replacement and is ideal for contemporary homes or whenever maximum glazing area is desired. As an added bonus the standard frame depth is 2-7/8” making it ideal for both new construction or use as a replacement window. Cascade West Development used this product in one of their latest homes which can be viewed here: A Home for Entertaining with a Maximum View
Quiet Line Series
The Sound Transmission Class (STC) for a typical dual glazed window ranges from 28 to 32, but Quiet Line provides a STC rating of up to 48, Each window is dual glazed with a built-in sound panel, essentially two windows combined into one. But rather than gluing together two separate components, Milgard builds each window through single-extrusion for superior sound control and better weather protection.
This series is also designed to complement Tuscany Series to maintain a more uniform look. A builder, Advent Companies, along with William Hezmalhalch Architects used Quiet Line and Style Line as a solution to a Metro rail stop location, view the case study here: Style Line and Quiet Line Series Case Study
