Horizontal Sliders

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


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 Love the look of the windows In the short time we have had with the new windows, we are very pleased with the overall functionality. So easy to open and close, like that they have a security guard, to ensure no one can get in. Cleaning the windows is also very easy, allowing the removal from the inside to clean them.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Broken on Arrival Our slider arrived broken,while we were out of the country. Even though we were told it wouldn't be arriving for another 3 weeks. Since it arrived while we were out of the country we obviously could not check the slider within the 5 day period that is required. We found it broken and contacted customer service and we were told "too late". It was also implied that we were lying about details such as the original delivery date and attempts at service appointments. Your "writing Guidelines" ask to avoid writing about customer service, of course it does! This is the worst customer service I have EVER been subjected to. The idea that this is a service issue is ludicrous. This is a WARRANTY ISSUE, for a product that was received broken. There should be absolutely no questions about assisting with this damaged product! I will NEVER buy another Milgard product again and I will spread the word to every single person that will listen.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Should Have Purchased Tuscany Line of Windows? Over the years talking to friends and acquaintances regarding their experiences with Milgard, especially the warranty service years down the road, I figured I would be getting Milgard when it came to replace the windows and the two sliding doors on my home in Thousand Oaks CA. After visiting three dealers of theirs, two big box hardware stores and the factory showroom twice in the neighboring town of Simi Valley, I decided it was well worth the extra money for Tuscany doors because of the big quality difference over the Styleline doors. I should have went ahead with all Tuscany, that is the windows also. First, I did not realize that Milgard with either style of these vertical vinyl sliders, that the slider window is much smaller that the fixed window. So especially the two rain-glass bathroom windows look odd, not balanced. The Tuscany line has a added molding to the fixed glass portion, so both look to have the same size opening. One narrow bedroom window looks odd also. It's true we wanted maximum square inches of glass for light, and the Tuscany fixed window I guess reduces that. We wanted the smallest most narrow moldings around the exterior, but these Styleline moldings are showing pretty wide on two windows inset in stucco. I believe you may be able to order different exterior molding styles with Tuscany. I choose a preferred installer of course, "Quality" of Oxnard CA. They did a real professional job, clean install, four techs, one day. Another preferred dealer closer by in Westlake Village also has a good reputation, but I think they just didn't have time for me, would not even make a proposal. I also believe the pricing was good with "Quality".

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We're enjoying the quiet! The installation was very quick, and the windows have made our bedroom much quieter. We are near a busy highway, so this has really improved our enjoyment of our home. Thank you, Milgard!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love the anodized aluminum. They look clean and modern which is what we wanted. We ordered our windows and a 16 foot slider from Jorge Martinez of Nevada Window and Doors in Las Vegas, Nv. He was so helpful and made sure we were happy every step of the way. The windows and sliders are beautiful. We ordered the anodized aluminum which looks perfect with the style house we built!! I would definitely recommend NWD, Jorge Martinez and Milgard.
