"Total satisfaction…price, appearance, quality…great value!" – Birch Bay, WA

Home windows come in many styles. They can be used in combinations of the same window, such as a bank of casement windows, or you can mix it up, such as a picture window flanked by two casement windows.

Whether considering windows for replacement or new construction, you will probably discover that you need different types. Review the operating styles below to get a better idea of the advantages of each window style and where you might want to use it in your home.

Explore Milgard home windows by operating style, product line or frame material below.

Types of Windows and Operating Styles

Awning Windows

With an awning window, the sash is hinged at the top and swings outward. This allows air to flow into the home with side to side ventilation, while helping to keep the rain out. This style of window tends to be smaller in size and is often wider than it is tall.

Horizontal Sliders

Horizontal sliding windows are a common style that is very easy to use. The sash slides either to the left or right, depending on where you wish to direct the air flow in the room. Sliders are a good option for larger window sizes.

Single Hung Windows

For single hung windows, the bottom sash slides up and down to open and close the window. The top sash stays in place and allows light to enter the home, but not air flow. Because they open vertically, they save space when the exterior faces a patio or walking path.

Learn more

Double Hung Windows

With double hung windows, both the top and bottom sash are operable. Plus, they are easy to clean because the sashes tilt inward, which may be important to you if your window is on a second story. They also offer the same space saving convenience of a single hung window.

Casement Windows

Casement windows have a hinge on one side and open outward by rotating a crank style handle. Because they open like a door, they allow the maximum amount of ventilation into the home. They offer an unobstructed view, similar to a picture window, because there is no rail in the center.

Picture Windows

Picture windows provide an unobstructed view to the outside for maximum daylighting. Picture windows are fixed and do not open making them ideal for rooms that need more natural light.

Bay Windows

Bay windows are a combination of three windows that protrude out from the home for a stylistic touch. They are generally one large fixed panel in the center, flanked by two smaller side lights that open for ventilation. It is common to see a window seat on the inside.

Learn more

Bow Windows

Bow windows are a combination of four or more windows of a similar width, joined at equal angels, to create an arched curve. The repetitive shape provides a distinct architectural effect and can offer additional space in a room.

Learn more

Radius Windows

Radius windows have an arched top and a rectangular bottom. The curve can be subtle or more rounded like a half-circle. These windows are decorative in style and bring a softness to the room.

Learn more

Garden Windows

Garden windows extend out from the house in a boxed format. There is a fixed panel at the back allowing daylight to shine on the interior shelf to grow potted plants. Side panels offer ventilation.

Learn more

Jalousie Windows

Jalousie, or louvre windows, are made of horizontal glass slats that operate much like a blind or a shutter. They open easily to admit light and airflow but, exclude rain. This option is only available in Hawaii.

Customer Reviews for Home Windows

Milgard® Windows is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 1718.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from The ease of use is great. Opening and closing these windows is a breeze. I have hand and arm issues and the new windows make my life much easier. The latches are easy to open and you know that the window is definitely shut when they're engaged.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We noticed a difference instantly We live on a mountain where we get a lot of wind, fog and noise from the airport. As soon as we had the Milgard windows installed, we don't hear the noise as much. The wind is muffled and we don't have drafts throughout the house. We are thoroughly pleased with our choice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Beautifully Made Our windows were made to our exact specifications. They fit perfectly into our imperfect frame. Lastly the windows enhanced our house

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful window We ordered one window of this type to confirm it would match our Milgard sliding door installed a few years ago. This window appears to be of the same quality and of excellent appearance. The window fit our opening perfectly and our installer (of considerable Milgard experience) did an excellent and timely install. This will be the basis of an order for several more windows in the next year or so.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The windows are beautiful. Our new Milgard windows are beautiful inside & out. They give our French/traditional style home a fresh updated look. We went from all wood windows, that had white grids, and that had become worn & warped to the Essence Series fiberglass clad wood -without grids. We love the clean look & great ‘views’. Also, looking forward to years of low maintenance-no need to paint exteriors.
