Essence Series® Picture Windows is rated 2.4 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Poor customer service I have tried unsuccessfully to get windows and wood pieces repaired or replaced and over a year later and several service calls, still not done

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Very dissatisfied Dear Milgard We purchased 11 new essence windows and a sliding Patio door from Mountain View Windows in Denver. We were assured that these were the top of the line windows and that although they were expensive, we would appreciate the quality and longevity of the windows. 6 of our windows failed within the first year. From the first time we contacted Mountain View about this problem to the time the windows were actually replaced took over 9 months. Milgard cancelled their appointment times with us twice with no notice. Our service rep, Guy, was unfriendly and unresponsive. He did not return calls and did not call at promised times. A seventh window failed approximately 2 years after purchase. We dealt with Milgard directly for repairs and are awaiting the replacement shortly. The time period for this replacement has been better. When we ordered our patio door, again through Mountain View, the first door never showed up, period. Mountain View informed us several months later that it had arrived broken and the had to refuse delivery. We ordered a second time and so far the door has been fine. We are doing a remodel and have just ordered two more large windows as we needed them to match the other windows that we ordered. We can not pin down a delivery or manufacture date which is problematic to our project. All in all, this windows look pretty but with 7 out of 11 failures and not so hot service I wouldn’t go this way again if I were starting over. The last two windows we just ordered came to over $1200. I would have been more satisfied if Milgard had offered us some sort of break on price as compensation for our time and hassle over the last two years but nothing was allowed or forthcoming. We can even get a delivery date or time frame for the new windows we purchased. If we didn’t need to match we would go with another company.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor Quality Control Just had six large picture windows installed in my sunroom Three of the six have flaws in the glass, one is so bad it can be seen from across the room. It's about 12" X 8" of scratches right in center of the window. It's inside between the panes. Don't think they have any type of quality control or this window would have never left the factory. It's so obvious. The other two are more minor, but noticeable upon close inspection. The lower frame rail on all six widows are bowed up in center. Customer service departments attitude is very lackadaisical and unconcerned with problems. Overall I think it's a low end product, when I replace my house windows I'll try another brand.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor followup on warranty We purchased a whole house window package. The factory sent reps to mull windows together. They did a poor job, not done correctly, damaged windows. A factory rep responded. It's been a month. They do not return calls and the Dealer, Foxworth Galbraith Lumber has not been able to get a factory response.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Serious Quality Control Issues My new Milgard windows failed immediately after installation because of a manufacturing defect. After two months, the replacement windows arrived but couldn't be installed because they did not fit. I have since learned from a friend that he experienced the same issues with his Milgard replacement windows. He says a different window fails every few years and, although Milgard always honors its warranty, each successive replacement window brings new quality issues and headaches. Briefly put, it seems Milgard has serious and ongoing quality control issues that make it difficult to recommend their products.
