Replacement Windows Add Value from Every Perspective

If you're thinking about replacement windows or patio doors, there's no reason to wait. The benefits start immediately. From enhancing your home's interior to adding to its curb appeal, new windows and doors transform a home from ordinary to outstanding. What's more, they provide one of the best returns on investment of any home improvement project. Especially if they're Milgard windows. Backed by a full lifetime guarantee, these are the last windows or patio doors you’ll ever have to buy for each one they replace.

Replacement Windows are Clearly the Best Investment

A recent national research study examined the cost of replacement windows in an average-sized home. They looked at how much the windows would add to a house's value if sold a year later. For the 15 major markets served by Milgard Windows, the average rate of the window replacement cost recouped was 91.6%. This 2002 research study, conducted by Remodeling magazine (a Hanley-Wood, LLC trade publication) utilized professional opinions of over 200 real estate agents and appraisers in the top remodel markets.

VINYL
Our Vinyl Windows are Rated #1

A vinyl frame is made from a compound – a recipe of sorts – that dictates its performance over time. Each additive to a company's vinyl recipe helps determine the long-term characteristics of the final product. Its weather and impact resistance, for example. How it handles the summer heat and winter chill. That's why Milgard uses only the best quality vinyl material. Others may cut costs, but we don't. Which is why at first glance competing windows may look the same, but don't perform as well. You can trust Milgard vinyl windows and door frames to live up to every year of our lifetime guarantee.


FIBERGLASS
The Ultimate Building Material

Fiberglass itself is nothing new. It's been floating boats and adding strength to ladders for years. But until recently, the complex profiles required for window designs have been impossible to attain with fiberglass. Milgard's R&D team faced this challenge and engineered a window and door system that's impervious to water, cold, heat, insects, salt air and ultraviolet rays. The end result: efficient windows and doors that maintain their beauty in every season, in any climate.

Milgard gives you two distinctive choices when it comes to fiberglass windows and doors: UltraTM and WoodCladTM. When you look at a Milgard Ultra series, you might think that it's painted wood. Or in the case of our WoodClad series, you might even think it's made out of solid Douglas Fir.

Experience the beauty of a wood window with the durability of a fiberglass frame. Make no mistake, our fiberglass windows will not crack, peel, bend/warp, or stick. A statement no wood window manufacturer can make.


ALUMINUM
Not Your Grandfather's Aluminum Window

For years, architects and builders have specified aluminum windows for their overall strength and lasting value. Because of their rigidity and durability, aluminum windows can be configured into large combinations with a large glazing area for maximizing views. These benefits keep aluminum popular as a frame material, but Milgard's aluminum windows are much different than the aluminum windows of the past.

Milgard approaches aluminum windows as a design element – not as a low-cost alternative to vinyl or wood. As a result, our unique aluminum windows are found in homes and projects ranging from entry-level homes and multifamily projects to high-end custom homes and light commercial applications.

ENERGY-EFFICIENT WINDOWS FOR BETTER VIEWS AND COMFORT
Cut heating and cooling losses with the best glass in the industry: Milgard SunCoatTM Low-E all climate, all-season glass. It's the "clear" glass choice for energy-efficient windows that give you year-round comfort. You'll find it on all Milgard insulated windows. Not only does it make our windows more energy efficient, but it also protects your carpet and furniture from fading. SunCoat Low-E blocks infrared light and reduces ultraviolet light.


WHAT IS SUNCOATTM LOW-E?
SunCoat Low-E is a clear, low-emissivity coating applied to one side of the glass in our dual-pane windows. This microscopically thin coating filters the sun's energy in the summer and reduces heat loss in the winter, making even energy bills look better. Low-E has been a product usually recommended for cold climates. Now with our introduction of SunCoat Low-E glass, you can use this product everywhere, from the heat of Southern Nevada desert to the cold of Chicago and Alaska winters.

You can get even greater thermal performance with the addition of argon gas to our standard, dual-pane, SunCoat Low-E insulating glass. In fact, our vinyl and fiberglass insulated windows have even been recognized by Energy Star® for their exceptional energy-saving qualities in your home.

  • The Benefits of Milgard SunCoat Low-E Glass Are Clear
  • Comes standard on all Milgard windows and doors
  • Reduces heat and cooling loads
  • Reduces harmful UV rays that fade carpet and furniture up to 78%
  • Provides all around comfort, all year long

ENERGY SAVINGS
Windows can account for up to 30% of the annual energy consumed in a home. In the summer, Milgard's SunCoat Low-E keeps your home cool and comfortable by rejecting the sun's heat and damaging rays. In the winter, SunCoat Low-E helps your home stay warm and cozy by blocking heat loss to the cold weather outside.

Heating and Cooling Energy Savings* (Percentage of dollars saved over ordinary glass. Savings by market.)


* Total energy costs (heating + cooling) comparing clear 2-pane glass to SunCoat Low-E, for a house with 15% window-to-wall ratio uniformly distributed on all four sides of the house. The actual savings can vary due to thermostat settings, use of drapes and blinds, and other lifestyle attributes.


MILGARD SUNCOAT LOW-E VS. ORDINARY GLASS
Installed in identical test homes in California's central valley, Milgard SunCoat Low-E glass demonstrated a remarkable reduction in energy use compared to ordinary clear glass.

The home featuring Milgard vinyl windows and SunCoat Low-E glass showed a 27% savings in summer cooling costs compared to the home with ordinary clear glass. The average summer afternoon demand for air conditioning in the SunCoat house was 30% lower due to reduced solar heat gain. SunCoat also produced significant savings on winter heating bills.

The test houses were identical single-story, 1,850 square-foot, 3-bedroom production homes. They were located on the same block with identical orientation and solar exposure. About 50% of the glass faced west.

From the standpoint of building design, this test proved that incorporating SunCoat enables the use of more windows and more dramatic views, without compromising on comfort or energy efficiency.

Proper care of your Milgard windows & patio doors is important. With some simple, routine cleaning and maintenance you can ensure your windows will perform their best while looking great. From frame cleaning to the drainage systems, light attention to your Milgard products will generate a lifetime of satisfaction.

Please follow these simple rules when maintaining your Milgard windows & patio doors:

Frame Cleaning
You may think that window cleaning is only for glass – suitable frame cleaning is just as important to the look and performance of your Milgard window or patio door.

  1. Wash window and patio door frames with only mild, nonabrasive soap and water. Never use abrasive or acidic cleaners because they might cause permanent damage to the frame finish. Always test cleaners in an inconspicuous area first. Wipe dry when finished.
Caring for your Glass
Milgard controls the entire production of every window & patio door, including the glass. Whether your window comes standard with the energy efficient SunCoat™ Low-E glass, or one of our many specialty glass options, proper maintainance is required to ensure their exceptional performance.
  1. Best practice is to clean glass with a mixture of mild dish soap and water. When finished, rinse complete with clear water and wipe dry with a soft cloth.
  2. Never use any of the following products on any part of your window or patio door – they may damage the glass surface or insulating seal: petroleum-based cleaners, or caustic chemicals; razor blades, putty knifes or abrasive pads; high-pressure water hoses.
  3. Use only mild soap, water, and a soft brush when cleaning your screens. When finished rinse with clear water and wipe dry.
Tips for a Lifetime of Effortless Operation
Following a few simple steps, you can ensure your Milgard window or patio doors open, close, lock and unlock smoothly for as long as you own your home. Guaranteed. In fact, if anything ever goes wrong with one of our products in a single-family home, we'll fix it for as long as the original owner lives there. Parts and labor included.
  1. It's important to periodically lubricate all window tracks and rollers. We recommend that you lubricate the hardware components once a year. In areas with high salt-air at least twice a year is recommended.
  2. It's important to make sure your window and patio door seals evenly when closed. Regularly check your weather stripping to ensure your window or patio door is sealed air tight.
  3. Occasionally vacuum the tracks on all sliding patio doors and windows to clear any dirt or debris.
  4. Your Milgard sliding patio door rollers can be adjusted for proper height clearance. Carefully use a screwdriver through an access hole at the bottom of your patio door.
Managing Condensation and Mold
Condensation on the inside of a window indicates the humidity levels inside that room are higher than outside. Excess moisture on the inside of your window may cause deterioration and possibly mold growth leading to possible health concerns. Follow these easy steps to reduce the risk of excessive condensation and mold growth.
  1. Check all window and patio doors for smooth operation and sealed air tight.
  2. Use exhaust fans regularly in rooms with high humidity (bathrooms, pool rooms, etc.)
  3. Use a ceiling fan to continually circulate air.
  4. Dehumidifiers can drastically reduce the amount of moisture inside your home.
  5. When practical, open all windows and doors when experiencing excessive moisture inside your home.
Allowing Your Window and Patio Door to Properly Drain
Mother Nature can be unforgiving to your home. Thankfully, with Milgard you are rest assured that no water will penetrate the inside of your home. Our window and patio doors are specially designed with a "weep" drainage system to protect the inside of your home. Proper maintenance of your weep system is required to assure proper drainage.
  1. The weep system is designed to allow the water to drain to the outside as water builds up. It's normal for the water to build up on the sill or the outside track. It's important to keep the sill or track clean of any dirt or debris.
  2. Periodically inspect the weep holes to make certain they are clear of any dirt or debris. Use a soft bottlebrush to clear openings. It is especially important if you anticipate excessive rain in the near future.
