Product Alterations

Below you will find the most frequently asked questions regarding Milgard product alterations, along with an answer for each.
Can I paint my vinyl windows?

Painting your vinyl windows is considered an alteration to the vinyl finish and will result in the warranty being voided.

Can I apply a window tint to my products?

We do not suggest adding a tint to your window glass as this will void your warranty on the insulated glass unit. Applying tint can cause excessive heat to the insulated glass causing the unit to prematurely fail.

Can I make adjustments to Milgard products?

Yes, many of the adjustments on all of our products can be performed within a matter of seconds. Milgard has a series of Do It Yourself Videos that will walk you through the process safely. If additional materials are needed, they can be ordered from your local dealer. If you are still having trouble with your product, you can call 1.800.MILGARD to schedule an appointment with a certified technician.

Can items such as the hanging apparatus for mini-blinds and window and door coverings (window tint, sunscreens) be attached to Milgard products without affecting the warranty on the products?

We do not recommend that you attach these types of items to the frames even though they don't interfere with the operation. Depending on the situation, it is possible to void part or all of the product warranty by making modifications, such as drilling into the frame, or blocking the weeping system.
