Horizontal Sliders

Horizontal slider windows slide to the left or right for easy-to-open capabilities allowing in natural light and fresh air.

sliding window

Horizontal Slider windows open with the sash sliding left or right. Some people find sliding windows easier and faster to open than crank-style windows. Since they open and close without protruding, horizontal sliders are an excellent choice for rooms facing walkways, porches or patios. Horizontal sliders are a favorite for contemporary style homes and are also popular for satisfying bedroom egress requirements. In a single slider, one sash slides to open. In a double slider, both sashes open. Double sliders are great for providing air circulation, particularly if there is only one window in the room.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Added Value We had upgraded to Milgard Windows in 1996 because our windows were leaking and not very acoustically sound. When we sold our home in October of 2016 everyone that came through to view it commented on the beauty of the windows. Thanks Milgard for helping us sell our home!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from High Quality - Delivery Time Late We are very pleased with the Essence Slider windows. It was clear during the installation they were well packed, and care was taken in the production process. We like the option of being able to disassemble the various wood interior pieces. Our only constructive comment relates to delivery time. We were promised February 8th, and the windows did not arrive until February 13th. This caused some tight turn around with regard to the installation, since we were working against weather conditions and the availability of the installer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Warranty - and I needed it I replaced every window in my house, 17 total. We love the ease of use and the crystal clear clarity of the glass. The insulation improvement is phenomenal. Midway through the retrofit, I used a laser thermometer to compare temperatures of my old aluminum window frames with my new Milgard vinyl frames. The difference was anywhere from 8 to 12 degrees. My home is more comfortable now! My only problem has been that two of my new windows have WARPED and are currently in process of being replaced. All four corners of each window frame are pulling away from the vertical plane of the house wall. Very odd. This makes the side-to-side sliders move with difficulty, and it creates gaping cracks at every corner, both inside and out. This warping appeared several months after installation and got worse very slowly. After about ten months, I sounded the alarm. My installer is a reputable contractor, and he's arranged free replacements with Milgard. I am confident that all will be well soon.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Windows We just finished replacing all the windows in our house. We started about 5 years ago and finally decided to finish the rest. We have the Tuscany style. Living in Arizona with our 110 degree summers, these double pane Argon gas filled widows keeps the heat out and the cool in and has reduced our A/C bill by 20%. Plus they look GREAT!!!. We could not be happier.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great windows for the price These are very good windows for the price. In would have to say that I have put in better windows but they were 3 or 4 times the price. Not worth the difference in price. These are very easy to install .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product. This is the second time we've purchased Milgard Tuscany Series windows for a home. They have clean lines, smooth movement, open and close with just a finger. The bright white color adds sparkle to the installation.
