2. The lifetime warranty windows have sometimes gone without being repaired by the company.

3. The replacement windows (especially the sliding windows) suffer from leakage issues which is a huge problem for people who live in windy areas or areas with heavy monsoons.

4. The sashes and seals on the windows are not sturdy or durable and they do fail quite often.

5. Some of their aluminum replacement windows have faced complaints for getting rusted too early.

6. Milgard uses local contractors and sub-contractors for some of the repair and replacement work, so they can’t guarantee complete customer satisfaction, in case you have to deal with them when you buy new windows or replace old ones.
