Milgard Windows Reviews

milgard windows reviews

Milgard windows  are primarily available in the western US and Canada.  They make a complete line of new construction and replacement windows in wood, vinyl, fiberglass and aluminum.  Milgard used to operate plants on the US east cost, but those operations have closed in recent years.

Historically Milgard was known as primarily a new construction window company, but after the drop off in new construction several years back they increased their focus on remodeling products.

Milgard windows vinyl options:

  • Tuscany
  • Montecito
  • Style Line
  • Quiet Line

Milgard windows wood options:

  • Essence Series

Milgard windows fiberglass options:

  • Ultra Series
  • WoodClad Series

Milgard windows aluminum options:

  • Standard Aluminum
  • Thermally Improved Aluminum

As you can see there are many options when it comes to Milgard windows, but you probably already know what frame material you’re looking for.  As our Milgard windows reviews continue to be updated you be able to learn about the advantages and disadvantages of each type.

Unfortunately, the folks on the east coast who purchased Milgard windows back when they were more readily available in that part of the world will likely have a difficult time with any warranty issues.  If you’re on the west coast or in Canada that shouldn’t be a concern.

    I recommend avoiding Milgard windows like the plague. We bought our house 17 years after it was built. One of the first things that I did was call Milgard. I was told that the lifetime warranty on the failing windows only applied to the original owner. The seal has broken between the panes, making the glass look like it belongs in a haunted house. In addition, locks on three windows have broken. Milgard does not stand behind its products.

      Remember, any reputable company will honor their warranty and probably won’t do a whole lot more than what was in their warranty. If they were offering a lifetime non-transferable warranty then that’s what you get. They’re not the bad guys for not providing more warranty coverage 17 years after the fact than they ever promised to offer.

      I’d suggest that your issue is with the builder who picked those windows or the seller (if they told you the windows did have a warranty) or yourself for not understanding whether or not the windows had a warranty.

      It would be like being mad at Ford for offering a 36,000 mile warranty and then not fixing a problem at 50,000 miles. It’s out of warranty, that doesn’t make them bad human beings.

    Hello, I’d like to better understand the difference in quality between Milgard Ultra and Anderson Windows. I know Anderson is a top named and rated brand, but it’s 2x’s the cost. Is Milgard a good quality product or is it just marketing? We are ready to make a purchase and appreciate the recommendation.

      Hi Kristine, in my opinion Andersen is more of a new construction window company. They do make some remodeling products that are perfectly nice, but I don’t think there’s any reason to pay double the cost to get them. Milgard offers perfectly nice choices too.

    We purchased our home this year. It was rebuilt after the High Peak fire in 2012, so it’s a new house built in 2013. Our windows are Milgard. So noisy and leaky. You can hear the wind whistling through them like crazy. It blows the blinds. I would not recommend them in this climate especially. We are in Bellvue, north of Fort Collins. They may be under warranty, but given the reviews I just read, I am not hopeful.
