Double Hung Windows

Double hung windows make cleaning easy and allow for added ventilation with their double tilting sashes.

Double-Hung windows are one of the most popular styles for homeowners. The window can be operated from the bottom or top sash, sliding up and down for ventilation. Since it opens and closes without protruding, double-hung windows are an excellent choice for rooms facing walkways, porches or patios. Milgard double-hung tilt windows have sashes that tilt inward to enable easy cleaning of the exterior glass.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Could not be more disappointed - windows look terrible I could not be more disappointed. The home I bought in 2012 had Milgard windows so I thought I would use the same when we switched out two single hung windows for one double hung window and a larger double-double hung. On the new windows, the plastic pieces making the outside frame do not fit neatly, there are gaps and the framing is therefore bent. I had Milgard service come in and take a look after they were installed, they agreed the framing was not up to par and attempted to replace the plastic pieces. unfortunately the "fix" still looks shabby and bent, and there is still a gap where they tried to force the new piece in. All of the seams where the pieces of the window come together have ugly plastic "glue" unevenly covering the connections. Some of the corners have gashes in them - maybe they were trying to scrape off the plastic glue???? I know what these connecting areas should look like - it should look like the old Milgard windows I had. Unfortunately, these windows look terrible and I will not purchase from Milgard again. Service person who came to try to fix the framing had no comment on the sloppy look of the corners/connectors.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Double Hung Windows Don't Close After 3 service calls because our double hung windows don't close, we were told today we are closing them wrong. The windows are so poorly made that they bend when you try to close them, so we were told we have to push up on the outside corners of the windows, not the middle. So if you don't have a wide arm span and strong arms, don't buy these windows. (Our garden window was assembled with the main window pane installed backward -- that was another issue!)

Rated 2 out of 5 by from The handles don't close all the way I ordered the double hang because of their versatility. I like to be able to open either end and turn the bottom window outside in to wash it. The problem is that when you close the window, it doesn't click to close all the time. I understand it is an issue with the double hung. I asked Milgard to come and take a look, but their first appointment is 2 months out. I'm still waiting. I don't use the windows meanwhile.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great windows, if they are right the first time I never judge a company by their mistakes. Mistakes happen, especially in construction. The way Milgard handled the mistake that happened on our order was not acceptable to me. We ordered 6 windows. 4 of them were perfect, the other two were "not acceptable to install", according to our rep. I don't know what the issue was, or who's fault it was, but at the end of the day, the issue required our rep to reorder product, which pushed the entire project back several weeks. There was no consolation offered, no discount, not even really an apology. These windows are well-constructed, but I dislike the closure on the double-hung style windows. In order to engage it, you have to hold the upper lite while pulling down sharply on the lower pane. It's inconvenient.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I had three windows done as a test A year later I had the rest of the house done, by Anderson.Love the new windows. Yours not so much. Had a hard time getting the right window cranks (like a month and a half).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Double hung windows are great We are replacing window ( a few at a time) on our 80 year old house so we chose to duplicate the old windows, which are double hung. We really like that you can open the top window and leave the bottom window closed. This is a great feature if you have children that you don't want falling out the windows. These windows also can be tilted inside the house so that cleaning the outside of the window doesn't require climbing a ladder. Just tilt them inside and clean them from the safety of your bedroom, kitchen, living room etc. This is a GREAT feature. We also like the double pane glass which should really help with energy costs compared to the old single pane windows we had. It's also nice to be able to open and close the NEW windows, as the old windows were painted shut a long time ago. The dividers, which we chose because they go with the style of our house, are placed between the two panes of glass so cleaning the windows is very easy, no having to do a single square of glass at a time like the old windows.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Efficient windows, good asthetics, easy to clean The windows are a significant upgrade from the contractor grade windows that were installed during the original home construction. It will be worth the upgrade for anyone looking to increase the efficiency of their home or install any alternative energy. Good product.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Better than the single pane window it replaced The quality of the window is good, with the following exceptions: 1 - water accumulates on top of the bottom window pane vinyl housing. Despite the drain holes, there is still a fairly big puddle that remains, and soaks the bottom felt liner of the top window. 2 - the installation of the trim around the outside of the window is very poor. It doesn't match the vinyl of the windows, there are cracks and gaps, and the adhesive used to attach it doesn't match either color.
