    Milgard claims to have a lifetime warranty. In our house, we have a failed sliding glass door where the internal coating has failed. It is mottled, blotchy and hazy. This is a known failure within Milgard, yet they simply take forever to respond to a warranty claim and then find a reason not to honor their warranty. Buyer beware. There are hundreds of people out there with the same issue that I have had to endure. Milgard Case Number **.

    Original review: March 27, 2023

    We purchased our 2006 home from the builder (Cecil & Ray Homes Inc.) in December 2012 and moved in January 2013. When we inspected the home prior to the purchase, we noticed a valance in one of the master bedroom windows was not working. The seller had a representative from Milgard (which the company they purchased all of the windows from) come out and fix the valance around the time we took possession of the home.

    Over the ten years that we have lived here, we have had a number of windows go bad. When the first one happened, Mr. ** told us that all the windows had an original homeowner lifetime warranty under Milgard, so we reached out to them on their website for assistance. While it took many months for them to respond for each incident, we made arrangements with a local Milgard representative to schedule a time for their window crew to come out and replace the failed windows. In two of those incidences, Milgard questioned whether or not we were truly the original homeowners. We explained what we knew about the home when we purchased it, which was that it was also used as a model home for a period of time within the Nottington Creek Subdivision of Olathe, KS, and the home was vacant during a large portion of the 2009 – 2012 recession.

    I also submitted a copy of our purchase contract and settlement statement from the title company to prove we purchased the home from the builder, and the builder and the neighborhood developer also emailed the Milgard representative directly to certify that we were in fact the original homeowner. This information seemed to satisfy Milgard representatives. They agreed that the timeline made sense and that the evidence provided was enough proof for our lifetime warranty. It was disappointing that we had to go through that nonsense two of the four times with them.

    Fast forward to May 2022 when we had a balance go out in another bedroom. We contacted Milgard via their website as we had done four other times, and five months after we submitted our request on their website, they contact us and told us we no longer had a lifetime warranty because they discovered the builder's sister resided in the home for a few weeks/months during that six-year vacant period while she was having a home built which makes her the first homeowner. That does not matter. We purchased the home directly from the builder, and Milgard’s warranty specifically says "Original Homeowner".

    In the legal world, words matter in all warranties, and nowhere in any of the Milgard warranties do they state ‘first renter’ or ‘squatter’. When we purchased the home, it was brand new in all respects such as us adding toilet paper and towel rods in each bathroom, window features in almost all of the rooms, a refrigerator, etc. We have repeatedly tried to plead our case and have someone come out and fix the window valance, but Milgard has refused to be responsive to our requests.

      We purchased over $25,000 of the Trinsic series windows from Milgard for a new home build. At the time we placed the order for the windows, Milgard's lead time to deliver windows was 6 months. By the time the new construction was ready for the window installation, it was mid-winter and cold. The vinyl windows were like brittle and chipped when installed. Almost every one of the 33 black vinyl window frames has a defect. As a result, the black frames have bright white showing where they chipped. When contacting Milgard for support we were told they would do nothing to resolve the quality issues because the windows were ordered too long ago. Milgards feedback is to touch up the chips with a black marker. I would highly recommend purchasing elsewhere. Milgard does not stand behind their product or support their lifetime warranty.

      This company replaced some windows in a neighborhood home. When they left, they did not secure their truck properly and deposited a huge trail of sharp broken glass along our neighborhood street and then onto connecting streets for over one mile. Calls from the neighbor who had the glass replacement and from our HOA were not responded to, despite the emergency nature of the situation. Ultimately, a team of neighbors was left to do all the cleanup over many hours of multiple days. This is an extremely sloppy and incredibly irresponsible company. Avoid like the plague.

      We ordered Milgard windows for my parents in 2015 and have several problems with them leaking. We have another window leaking into a bedroom this year and a big storm is coming and all they have to say is that they do not do emergency service. That I have to create an online request. When I submitted an online request I received an automated reply that it may take several weeks to process our request and that if this was an emergency to call the 1-800 number. I am not usually one to complain but this is ridiculous! BUYER BEWARE!!

      Resolution response: Jan. 5, 2023

      Contacted Milgard and resolved matter with their warranty department in Tualatin OR. Warranty exclusions for broken glass was somewhat ambiguous in context (in my opinion) and I misconstrued the applicable coverage. I don't know why earlier glass breakage was covered, but it's time to move on.

      Original review: Jan. 3, 2023

      Filed claim for cracked inner window pane. No apparent cause. I'm the original owner of the house bought in 1993. Windows have full lifetime warranty to original property owner. The claim was rejected with statement that all glass breakage is unwarrantable-regardless of cause. In my opinion, this contradicts the published warranty for windows bought between March 1, 1988 and Oct 1. 1995. Only exclusions detailed for this time period are for misuse, improper installation or acts of nature. To my knowledge, none of these conditions have been substantiated, and no physical examination has been undertaken aside from a couple of nondescript photos submitted with the claim. A previous claim for a cracked window filed in 2016 was covered by warranty without question. It appears Milgard's reputation for customer service is slipping. A company's reputation is only as good as it's customer service!

      We recently purchased top of the line Fiberglass Milgard casement windows for our remodel which came with a lifetime warranty. All of our new windows are fading in color. The dark espresso color is turning white. We attempted to file a claim, but Milgard outsourced their warranty to department to a third party. A technician showed up who told us the paint was not covered; he had no clue about the warranty and hardly knew anything about Milgard products. The warranty company then came back and said they would paint our windows. This is not an option for us. Beware of Milgard’s warranty.

      Milgard does not stand behind their windows. I had a full house of Milgard windows installed and the frame on one of them started cracking. I filed a warranty claim based on the fact that the warranty for the windows said this was clearly covered: "fiberglass frames: 10 years for excessive peeling, checking, cracking, chalking, fading, or color change."

      After waiting a month for Milgard to respond to the claim, I ended up having to call them. After a couple hours on hold and getting hung up on by the first person that picked up, I finally got to someone. The entire conversation was the company trying to get out of paying for a warranty claim. First they claimed it was shipping damage. After I mentioned it had been installed for quite some time and there hadn't been damage the entire time, they decided to go away and then claim it was still not covered because it was a 'nonmanufacturing defect' and that the person I was speaking to was denying my claim. If their warranty claims cracks in the frame are covered, I'm confused how a crack in the frame of my window couldn't be covered. So, now I guess I have to pay for a new window to get installed. In any case, if you're looking for new windows, I'd avoid Milgard in the future. They clearly don't stand behind their products.

      Original review: Oct. 4, 2022

      I am a lic. General contractor in the Lincoln ca area. I have installed Milgard windows for many years with no issues. 0. Now I am replacing windows in my mom's house she has owned since new. After a 4 month wait they cancel the window replacement (under warranty) the day before and reschedule for another 2 months later. Being a contractor in Del Webb Lincoln Hills I have seen this many times. Same game. Schedule and cancel. Original owners are few in Del Webb now that it is going on 20 yrs. This has me reconsidering the product I choose. I have used milgard most of the time and the lifetime warranty is nice as long as your original owner. Windows in question have become fogged up in between the glass. The windows look like someone tried to clean them and didn't get them dry. Mike

      Milgard windows fogged and Tuscany French doors leaked and they did not honor the warranty. The warranty is not worth the paper it’s written on. They always find an excuse to claim it’s not covered by their warranty
