Picture Windows

Picture Windows

Open up your living space with a picture window, allowing light and views of the outdoors into your home.

picture windows

Picture windows are fixed windows that do not open. They are usually installed in difficult to reach places to let in light. For unobstructed views where ventilation is not a concern, picture windows are ideal. Picture windows create a portrait-like space on walls - hence the word "picture" in their name. Picture windows are also a popular choice for letting in natural light without cold air in areas of a room that may be most susceptible to drafts. 

In picture windows, insulated glass is a great option for added performance and increased comfort in the home. Insulated glass is a combination of two or more panes of glass with a hermetically sealed air space between them. Optional inert gases like argon or krypton may be used between panes to further improve thermal performance and energy savings.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great For Significantly Reducing Traffic Noise Just had Quiet Line window installed in our bedroom that faces busy road in The Woodlands, TX. Window significantly reduced the noise, enough that I no Ionger have to run sound machine or house fan to block the noise and can sleep soundly. Very happy with window. I was concerned about how double, double pane window would look, but it looks fantastic. I looked for several years for the best solution for the traffic noise and glad I picked Milgard. Added bonus was that even though we had to resize window opening to be able to use Quiet Line window, it was still priced better than other options we looked at. Authorized Milgard dealer in Houston we used did fantastic job too of installing. Only wish was that Quiet Line windows were made in larger sizes and different shapes so we could replace all our windows with these.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great looking window I have yet to test the durability of the window as it was just installed today. But I’m very pleased with the simplicity of the design and sharp appearance. The quality is also backed by lifetime warranty which gives you total peace of mind for any eventualities.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Wind blows through picture window frame It looks like the heat welding of the plastic glass holder to the frame was not done properly. There was a visible gap on the outside. Not sure if that is the issue or if it is the drains but something is letting wind blow through the frame of the picture window. When working on texturing inside walls around the window i tapped heavy craft paper over the window. When the wind blowed outside the paper visibly moved. It was so loud our dogs would not stop barking.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's so clear! We're slowly replacing our ancient aluminum windows with Milgard. It's immediately striking how clear the picture window is, especially by comparison. My husband remarked that it's almost like it's not there. Another company tried to sell us a $4000 window in the same opening. I'm glad they didn't talk us into it. We're a pickup-truck driving family on acreage. We don't need a Cadillac. This window was not only far, far less expensive, but it exceeded my expectations. I love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Key feature is life time warranty. This is our fourth Milgard purchase -- just a few windows left to replace in future. The window opening mechanism has improved since our first purchase and is now very easy to use. We appreciate how easy it has been to have glass replaced if the seal has broken over the years. When one of the windows needed a part replaced, Milgard sent the part with instructions on how to make repair. We were able to make the repair with minimal effort and learned more about the window's mechanism for future use. Our oldest Milgard windows are about 15 years old and continue to be excellent windows.
