ow that we are spending more time in our homes, blending spaces such as the indoors and outdoors will make us feel like we are maximizing the space of our homes. Since we’re looking out our window and doors a lot right now, you might be wanting to pull the trigger on finally upgrading windows or doors for security and products with a good warranty.

Under current circumstances, Milgard dealers available are offering virtual consultations, and dealers who can visit, are happy to come in your home and measure while keeping 6′ social distancing rules. They will help show a homeowner how to measure the window themselves, and able to provide a quote. Also, if you order now and if you want to install later, there is a tax refund promotion you can check out here.

I am no stranger to home ownership, having owned my first place since I was 23 and jumped into remodeling and replacing, to today, in my second house and in our current state of renovation. We’ve replaced windows, doors, roofs, done a landscape renovation, I mean you name it, chances are we’re done it. If you are currently undergoing a new build, or perhaps looking for replacement windows to fit a new style, I am excited to show you these window and door options that are available – most with a Full Lifetime Warranty.

I was chatting with my best friend about the products and sharing photos I discovered after I stopped into a Milgard Certified Dealer showroom. As I shared photos, she saw the beautiful bifold stacking door and her eyes got real big and she said, “I want that!” I’ll show you exactly what it looks like later in this post.¬†Chances are you might want it, too.

Milgard high-quality windows and patio doors feature beautiful modern style windows to fit your home decor, including black which is so chic right now with the white painted walls. Aluminum gives a contemporary look, and vinyl is energy efficient and affordable. Fiberglass windows are available as well (this is where you can get a black interior as well as exterior frame color). If you are window shopping, one design and money saving tip is to use statement windows for the front of your home and more basic windows for the back. Similar to having wood shutters on the front of your house for looks and wood blinds in the back windows, having a variety of window styles allows you to stretch your budget.

Full Lifetime Warranty

Milgard Windows & Doors offers an industry leading Full Lifetime Warranty to the original purchaser that includes parts and labor for as long as you own your home. You can find complete details on the warranty by Series type at

Slider windows automatically lock + are removable

Depending on the Series you choose, you can select from different lock finish options for your windows. One of their exclusive features is SmartTouch(R) which comes on many of their slider windows. What I loved the most was the automatic locking feature. No extra pushing down a button or wondering if you locked your windows before you go on vacation – if the window is closed, it’s locked! Great for peace of mind.

^^ Plus, another feature of the slider windows is that the window pops out for easy cleaning!

This is when my own eyes doubled in size because I would love to clean my windows easily.

    That automatic locking feature is amazing… we have an older home that we love, our neighborhood is great but the surrounding area is kind of scary. With three little ones, that automatic lock would give such peace of mind!

    Oh my gosh- windows that POP OUT for easy cleaning?! I need those in my life! I also love the black frame look with the fiberglass. I would never have picked it out for myself until I saw how beautifully it stands out in the pictures!

  • Brittany mills

    The bifold doors are stunning; definitely planning for these in my next house. Thanks for mentioning the tax rebate program; I love that there is plenty of time to get someone out, get measured, and get ordered. Plus the rebates come in the form of Amazon gift cards – something we can ALL use!

    I love that the windows pop out! That’s a great feature!
