Double Hung Windows

Double hung windows make cleaning easy and allow for added ventilation with their double tilting sashes.

Double-Hung windows are one of the most popular styles for homeowners. The window can be operated from the bottom or top sash, sliding up and down for ventilation. Since it opens and closes without protruding, double-hung windows are an excellent choice for rooms facing walkways, porches or patios. Milgard double-hung tilt windows have sashes that tilt inward to enable easy cleaning of the exterior glass.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from HORRIBLE WINDOWS DO NOT PURCHASE THIS IS MY 2nd ATTEMPT TO POST THIS TO MAKE PEOPLE AWARE OF THE PROBLEMS WITH THESE WINDOWS. While the double hung windows are easy to unlock and slide open, they are absolute garbage when it comes to trying to close/lock them. We have to slam the windows shut or have a person/stick hold up the top window while another one slams the bottom half down to lock. If the windows are not perfectly aligned you cannot lock them, other companies use a different locking mechanism that makes it easier to close/lock. Apparently the size windows we chose were too large/tall to lock easily or shut easily. Any window over 2' width or 4' height are ridiculously hard to shut (no grips) and/or secure (the locking mechanism doesn't hold) While an arthritic hand may be able to open these easily, they would have a terrible time trying to shut and lock them. Why did you sell these windows in those sizes without a warning?! We have replaced a lot of windows in a remodel before and we figured with a new build the windows would be fantastic, we are incredibly disappointed.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from It is good but.... We ordered two double hung windows, and while both are over-all good windows they both wiggle side to side too much. The window rocks back and forth way too much too seem normal. This side to side movement prevents the window from opening or closing smoothly. Thus overall we are a little disappointed in the products but they are installed now so....

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!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Ok Windows The windows arrived ahead of scheduled; however, the sliding glass frame had two significant indentations and the main picture window had a significant bow in the frame. The contractor doing the install rejected both at pick-up. At first Milgard said the defects were not significant enough to warrant replacement. I pointed out that I paid a great deal of money for the wondow and my expectation was to have a product with out defects. Milgard finally relented and said they would replace. When the replacement came, they were the wrong color and needed to be reordered. Finally 10 week after ordering the window and door arrived and were the correct color; however, the screen door on the sliding glass door was not the correct screen. In fact it is a screen for an entirly different style door. I doubt I will ever get the correct screen door. Would I receommend Milgard windows to someone else, I would yes with the warning to be dilligent and make sure they are not giving you defective product or the wrong product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not a real good window We have Milgard double hung vinyl windows. We now have been in our home for 3 months , it is now December 16 you can feel the cold inside the windows they have ice on the bottom of them. 39% humidity and they are frosted up and cold. I am certain for the money their is a better product made. We should not have listened to their sales person. Not a well made window.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very pleased Little disappointed with the timing. I live about an hour east of San Francisco so it gets pretty dang hot in summer and my windows were installed in October when it is very mild and comfortable so they have not been greatly tested; have been a couple of warm days, there was a difference, come on winter and summer! My house is between 106 and 110 years old so I chose double hung in keeping with the era; I do actually open the upper windows. There is design feature that I was not aware of; the lifters are at the top of each window so opening and closing is a little different than the old original windows. I was told that using the upper window would be difficult since the top of the window is nearly 8' above the floor. So far this has not been too bad, especially if not closed quite all the way, since I just go between the two windows and pull down like I use to. Having double hung, however, does not leave much room to grip, so a nice feature there perhaps would be a small embedded handle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product has great features, looks good, ease of use good. We really like the great features of this window. We like that you can clean it easily and the ease of handling is good. The appearance is nice, clean and sleek. It seems quite sturdy and we feel that we will be really happy with this product for many years.
