Customer Reviews for Essence Series® Patio Doors

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outside protection, beautiful inside We are happy to let you know that we are pleased with our new windows. The old windows were far past their prime, especially the outside wood. The fibreglass exterior looks great and the inside wood is beautiful. The new windows make the house more pleasant in terms of temperature and no worries about colour fading. Bert and Connie

Rated 1 out of 5 by from No customer service! Delayed delivery I chose Milgard windows and doors because I was told that they would be in in 4 to 6 weeks six weeks being the maximum I was just informed that they are delayed again until April 7 with no explanation!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from VG Fir wood components finish not very good VG Fir wood frame and cladding on interior of doors was not of quality expected for quality of overall door construction and price of unit. Some pieces not totally smooth and, even with Benite treatment prior to staining, did not give true "VG Fir" appearance, (Some pieces OK --- so inconsistent). One jamb extension piece has a small knot swirl --- not truly VG!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Esseence Door We recently purchased a Essence french door and 3 new windows through a contractor. Our home was broken into over 2 months ago and we opted to wait the 2 months for Milgard to manufacture while we had wood and cardboard over our windows. Delivery and installation day came (2/8/17) and after removing the crate from the door we notice it was not the correct door, my contractor checked his emails he found Milgard somehow did not contruct the correct door. We had the option of sending the door back however this would mean another 2 month wait. We decided we would work with the door that we received. Once the door was in place we were unable to get the door handle and lock to function so the door is stuck. This means the door cannot be shored up properly so it is temporarly installed. As of today 2/9/17 we are currently waiting to hear from Milgard regarding the warranty and what can be done to repair this. This door was very expensive I would have thought they would have at least tried to operate the door before it left the factory? I would check other brands before buying this wasn't exactly the experience we expected.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Milgard Essence sliding Door To make a VERY long story short, I bought this top of the line Essence door from Lowes in June 2016. I am still trying to get the door fixed. It did not come with the features I ordered. Most importantly, I cannot even walk through the door without turning sideways because og their defective handles design, which limits opening of a 2.6 door to 24 inches or so. Service is terrible!!! My next service appointment is now out ANOTHER month to March 3, 2017, and they won't even commit to a time of day until two days before the appointment. Buy a different brand and save yourself the headaches.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The whole house is now Milgard windows I had two old single pane windows in my garage and I wanted to insulate it. Since I did the rest of the house in Milgard, I bought Milgard to match. It is a good brand for the price. I have seen better and I have seen worse. It's a good middle of the line window.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 100% guarenteed I don't know the name of the style window we purchased for the house We built in 2004. We have had a few windows lose the gas inside the double pane and cloud up over time. No problem! 12 years later, they come out and replace them no questions asked!
