With the kids grown and out of the house, the parents decided it was time for an overdue home improvement project. There was a lot of heat coming in from the aluminum patio doors during summer months and cold drafts during the winter.
The previous wood window frames had to be sanded and repainted every few years. Some of the wood windows were rotted. Over the years, the homeowners experienced problems with water damage as the caulking would crack and chip.
The homeowners replaced all old windows and doors with the Milgard Tuscany® Series product line. Compared with the old wood windows, Tuscany Series windows were lower-maintenance, which meant there was no longer a need to sand or repaint the windows.
Simulated divided lite grids provided an aestheticly pleasing appearance. The SmartTouch® locks offered improved ease of use and security. The homeowners remarked the windows dramatically improved the curb appeal of their home.
"My wife has arthritis in her hands so she especially appreciates the ease with which she can open, close and lock the sliding doors and our windows. I believe you call the locks Smart Touch locks --- they're great and secure." - Milgard Homeowner, Arcadia, CA
