Window Screens

Milgard screens keep pests out and air flowing in.

Window and patio door screens are primarily designed to let fresh air in and keep most everything else out. Milgard screens are crafted using aluminum frames and fiberglass mesh. Most screens are placed on the exterior of your home, so that you can open and close the window from the inside. Only casement and awning windows have the screen on the interior side, so that the window can be cranked open for ventilation. 

Retractable Screens

Retractable screens are sliding door screens that roll into a pocket when not in use. These screens virtually disappear when you don't need them. They usually have a built-in dampening system for smooth, easy retraction—they won't slam shut if accidentally released. 

PureView® Screen

Better Views

Featuring smaller yarns, the innovative PureView® window screen from Milgard blocks less of your vision and increases light transmittal, allowing more natural light to fill your room. The finer mesh also reduces the appearance of the screen, which makes your home more beautiful, inside and out.

Enhanced Performance

Not only are the highly durable individual yarns smaller in diameter than conventional fiberglass window screens, the space between the yarns is smaller as well, protecting homes against even very small insects and particles. The durable fiberglass material stands up to all climates, performing especially well in coastal regions, as it resists corrosion and breakdown.


  • Smaller aperture of opening provides better particle protection
  • Mesh design utilizes smaller yarn to improve curb appeal
  • Greater openness (74% versus standard screen at 59%) allows: 
    • More light to enter your home
    • Greater airflow for better ventilation
    • Increased optical clarity for clearer views
