Vinyl windows are affordable, energy efficient, and virtually maintenance-free, making them a popular choice for new and replacement windows. At US Window & Door, we offer a full line of Milgard Vinyl Windows, and we are proud to be the top-rated retailer of Milgard Vinyl Windows in the U.S. Their vinyl window product lines are unmatched in beauty and quality of construction, and they come with a lifetime warranty for both the product and the installation.
With over 50 years in the business, Milgard has earned a reputation for excellence, gaining recognition for their many achievements in window and door manufacturing. In 2017, for example, they were awarded the American Architectural Manufacturers Association (AAMA) Chairman’s Award, the company’s highest honor. Other recent achievements include recognition as the Best Vinyl Window Product in the 2016 Building Materials Brand Preference Survey conducted by Peninsula Publishing and the 2016 Crystal Achievement award for the most innovative window according to Window & Door magazine.
The main component of Vinyl Windows Milgard is polyvinyl chloride, or PVC, along with other materials added to strengthen and protect the resulting product. For example, they add titanium dioxide to make their vinyl window frames extra heat-resistant. Every manufacturer has a unique formula for vinyl, and Milgard has developed a recipe that yields a solid and insulating product. Also, they have developed an outer protective coating available in multiple colors and finishes. Their two-coat formulation allows ultraviolet rays to pass through the outer layers and reflect off the vinyl, thus protecting the exterior from damage from UV rays. Milgard Vinyl Windows has been named the “most preferred vinyl window” by multiple industry publications
Their energy-efficient vinyl windows contributed to the home that won the Gold Nugget Award for Best Zero-Net Energy Design in Orange County in September of 2017. All of their vinyl window products are fabricated in-house and thoroughly and extensively tested before they reach the consumer.
Vinyl window frames offer several advantages compared with other frame materials. For one thing, vinyl is an affordable frame material compared with wood (at two times the cost of vinyl) and fiberglass (at 1.5 times the price of vinyl).
Although vinyl is more expensive than aluminum, it offers more insulation. Because Milgard constructs their vinyl windows with honeycomb-like pockets that trap air, they do a better job of minimizing heat transfer between the indoors and the outdoors. Thus, new vinyl windows can save homeowners money on year-round heating and cooling costs.
Another advantage of vinyl windows is that they need little to no maintenance. While traditional wood-framed windows must be sealed and stained or painted regularly, vinyl is immune to moisture and never needs to be painted.
Finally, many customers prefer Vinyl Windows Milgard because they are available in such a wide variety of colors and styles. Along with the standard colors white and tan, Milgard offers a selection of eight premium color finishes (including ivory, fog, espresso, and bronze) that can match almost any home’s exterior.
Milgard manufactures vinyl windows in a wide range of styles, and most are available in more than one product line. US Window & Door customers can find vinyl windows for every room in the house in the following styles.
A single-hung window is a traditional window with an upper and lower sash. The upper sash is fixed while the lower sash can be opened and closed.
Another traditional window style, a double-hung window is composed of two movable sashes so that the top sash can be lowered to let in air, and the bottom one can be raised. More customers purchase double-hung vinyl windows than any other style
Horizontal sliding windows are long rectangles with sashes that slide to the left or right. These Milgard vinyl windows can be constructed with either one or two movable sashes, and they are often installed above a doorway or in rooms that face a porch or patio.
A picture window does not open and close. Instead, it is designed only to provide a view, usually to the front of the house, and Milgard constructs it with a single large, undivided pane of glass. Radius windows are another type of picture window with a rounded top.
These windows are often installed in a bathroom, above a kitchen sink, or over a doorway. They hinge at the top and open outward with the turn of a crank.
Casement windows are hinged at one side and open up like a door with the turn of a crank. Both awning and casement windows are ideal for Milgard vinyl windows in hard-to-reach areas since they can be opened without pushing upward or outward. However, homeowners should be mindful of foot traffic; windows that open outward could obstruct a path.
Bay windows are similar to picture windows in that they don’t open and close but are designed instead to provide a view. These windows are composed of three fixed windows set at angles to each other to create an extension from the front of the house. You can even use the space in front of the window inside the house as a shelf or a window seat.
Like bay windows, bow windows extend from the front of the house but in a wider, curving shape as Milgard constructs them with 4 or more joined windows. Vinyl bay windows and bow windows are strikingly attractive architectural features.
US Window & Door carries four series of Milgard Vinyl Windows, and each series encompasses a range of window styles.
Many homeowners opt for Milgard Vinyl Windows because they are both attractive and cost-effective. Customers can expect to pay considerably less for vinyl than they would pay for wood or fiberglass windows. Vinyl windows offer additional savings due to their energy efficiency, and homeowners often find that they get an excellent return on their investment over time as their heating and cooling bills go down.
Several factors go into the cost of Milgard vinyl windows, including the size of the window, the style or type of window, the specific product, and the complexity of the installation. Since every job is custom, the installation professionals at US Window & Door are happy to provide an in-home estimate for any customer.
