Technical Specs

Signature Vinyl Formula
Milgard engineers are innovative in developing our high quality vinyl formula. We not only control the creation of our vinyl recipe, we also extrude the frame material in- house. This helps us monitor the quality, which results in a vinyl window that can withstand harsh climate conditions. 

11 Exterior Frame Colors
Montecito Series vinyl windows come in eleven exterior frame colors. Premium exterior finishes, like bronze or espresso, provide a desirable dark frame look. Our Heat Reflective Technology allows solar radiation to pass through the paint and immediately reflect off the frame, for a finish that resists cracking.

Durability & Energy Efficiency
Milgard vinyl frames are energy efficient and require very little maintenance. They are non-corroding and durable. Milgard offers a variety of energy packages designed to meet tough thermal and solar requirements for the state that you live in. 

Smart Touch Hardware

SmartTouch® Hardware
Responding to consumer needs for products that are easy to operate, Milgard developed the patented SmartTouch locking system used on our Montecito® Series windows. It is an easy way to lock and unlock your windows. Plus, with SmartTouch, you can be assured that when your window is closed, it’s locked.

Full Lifetime Warranty

Full Lifetime Warranty
Milgard® Montecito Series is backed by the Milgard Full Lifetime Warranty. We will repair or replace any defect in materials or workmanship and will pay the costs of all parts and labor for as long as the original purchaser owns their home. If you sell your home, the warranty extends to the second owner 10 years from the install date.

Montecito Series Operating Styles

  • Single Hung
  • Double Hung
  • Horizontal Slider
  • Casement
  • Awning
  • Picture
  • Radius
  • Bay & Bow

Single Hung
Choose the Montecito® Series single hung window for a classic look. The bottom sash moves up to open the window and allow ventilation. They are equipped with the Milgard SmartTouch® lock that makes these vinyl windows easy to use.

Double Hung

Double Hung
Montecito® Series double hung windows have attractive features. They open from both the top and bottom sash, plus they can tilt in for easy cleaning. Consider using them for rooms that face a walking path, because they do not protrude from the home. 

Horizontal Slider

Horizontal Slider
With a horizontal slider window, the sash can slide open from the left or the right. It’s up to you. Montecito® Series comes with the SmartTouch® window lock that makes opening and closing your window a breeze.  

Casement windows from the Montecito® Series offer maximum ventilation in the room. They are hinged on the side and open in the same way a door does. Casements operate by turning a handle. Many homes use them over the kitchen sink. 

Milgard® Montecito® Series awning windows open and close by turning a handle. The window hinges at the top, opening outward from the home. They allow air to flow in, but keep the elements out. 

Picture Window

Choose a picture window style if an unobstructed view is your goal. You can pair them with operable windows to aid in ventilation. If you have high ceilings, picture windows can help let in more natural daylight and brighten up a room. In addition to rectangles, this style is also available in specialized shapes, such as gables and trapezoids.

Radius windows can be operable or simply a picture window style. Radius windows include half circles, full circles and rounded tops. If you are looking for a visual way to soften hard edges, radius windows could be for you. 

Bay and Bow

Bay and Bow
Bay and bow windows can create a dramatic look and add to your living space. Bay windows are three or more windows that protrude from the wall. The center panel is often wider than the ones that flank the sides. Bow windows are four or more equal size panels angled to form a soft curve.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Milgard windows fail and leak, it is a disgraceful company! Millard windows don't hold up. My new house was entirely outfitted with Milgard windows and doors. Some windows were sliders and some casement. Not only will the glass fail and fog over, but the vinyl frames will split at the corner welds. The center seal on all the sliders fail, leaking air and dirt, which quickly piles up on the window sill. Milgard will represent a lifetime warranty for as long as the original owner is in the house, but, good luck with that! You want to experience double talk and grandiose excuses, try to get a defective window replaced. Save yourself money and much aggravation, don't buy anything Milgard!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great windows We purchased 8 windows and installed them ourselves. Installation was easy. The windows fit perfectly in place of the old ones and looked very nice. We noticed the chill in our home was gone almost immediately.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I'm happy overall Overall I'm very satisfied with the window. I really like the way the sliding windows , and lock with ease. However I do want to note that the window itself is out of square. It is Slightly trapezoidal shaped. And has a slight Crown in it. These are very minor and are not visible in the finished product except for when sliding the window close you can see the top on both sides touch the edge before the bottom so there is a noticeable crack at the bottom. The windows closed and locked just fine and don't seem to leak air.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Warranty is a sham - sole reason I bought Milgard Put Milgard in 1M+ home I built, in 2012, 5 years later getting manufacturing stress cracks that are covered undered warranty. Builder convinced me to go with Milgard because of the quality and warranty even though the colors weren't great. I read the warranty carefully, looked at reviews to see if Milgard really honored their warranty, then put Milgard exclusive throughout the house. Regret doing so. If you read the warranty Milgard says they warranty against manufacturing and materials. Not the case, manufacturing stress cracks they won't even talk to you about blaming instantly on handling and installation, they don't even look at the window before jumping to this conclusion. So what do they warranty? Now I am stuck explaining to my wife why we got Milgard for the warranty but they won't warranty their poor craftsmanship.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful retrofit! The window fit perfectly and was easy to install. It is 119" by 47", so it is quite heavy, but we removed the 2 sliding windows and it was easier to lift with 2 people. It is solidly built, looks great and the sliding windows are smooth and easy to open. I'm very pleased with this Milgard window!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Milgard Windows Provided you get a competent vendor that can get the right windows for you area, these products are fine. I am not going to say great yet, because I want to see how they do. I bought them in June, they decreased my power bill a lot (living in Las Vegas, NV), and are a great value for the money. The window guys in town and I were wondering why builders use such inferior products for new homes, when they can just pay a little more and get something with a lifetime warranty and superior performance. I won't have any complaints unless the windows turn out to be bad, but probably still won't then, since Migard stands by the product.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Rebuild We are in the middle of our major rebuild. We are not living in the house so haven't yet used the windows. One major surprise.... we wanted dark gray window frame on the outside. Disappointing your darkest option is Bronze- defined in dictionary as coppery brown. We chose it anyway. We were happily surprised that your "bronze" is a perfect match to our dark gray metal roof.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The windows are Built to Last The windows I purchased have been a great addition to my home and have improved the overall beauty of my home. After the initial inspection of the windows and over seeing the installation of them I can see why these windows have the lifetime warranty.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Montecito windows look great and perform well We love our new Montecito windows. The look has upgraded our home, giving a traditional home, a newer, more updated look. All the windows function well, opening and closing smoothly and efficiently. Early indications are that the windows help keep summer sunlight from heating up the interior of the home; and, help keep the winter interior heat from escaping outside. Based on our experience, we'd highly recommend the Montecito window series.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well Made, easy to install Windows are solid. I bought four of these. One must have been made by a new employee. It hangs on the locking pin when opening. The other three work smoothly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Windows Bought 5 casement and 3 fixed windows for my shop project and they are the one thing visitors most comment on. They are stunning. And I appreciate not just the looks, but their functionality - truly a well engineered product.
Date published: 2017-10-03
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product - one thing to improve The appearance, functionality and overall quality of the windows is great. My wife has one issue - it is a bit tight/stiff for her to open when reaching over the counters to lift them, but we have only had them for a few months so maybe with time will ease.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Improved design Love the automatic window lock when sliding the window to the closed position and easy to unlock and open--great design. And love how the screen removes easily without those breakable and sometimes nuisance plastic tabs. Incorporating the grab into the screen frame was genius! It was also easy to remove the slider glass panel which makes for easier installation. Thanks!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from excellent features These windows are very easy to open and clean. We had to replace 2 east facing bedroom windows and were concerned about heat and light. After installation the temperature in the room dropped and we have plenty of light. I definitely recommend this product.
