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 1 out of 5 by from Junk - Straight from the factory I had previous experience with Milgard windows and was very excited when my contractor suggested them for our new build. However, when the windows were installed they were junk. All I hear is they had a problem at the factory and they will get it right (eventually). The window supplier had to come out and make some adjustments as the warranty guys were so backed up they couldn't get out for over a month. This stopped our complete construction schedule and has put us way behind. The windows are still terrible and the sliders take a full strength to open and close. I'm very disappointed and asked my contractor to pull them out and start over. Unfortunately this would set us back even further. Junk... they lost the formula. It's going to be interesting to see how Migard handles this issue. So far... not so good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far so good. Excellent performance !!! I'm already seeing energy cost savings. My monthly electric bills show that since I have had the windows installed I'm using less energy than the previous year.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Window Design and Performance These new windows are an addition to the windows at our house. We have had Milgard windows in 80% of the house, these new Milgard windows complete the entire house. Our first Milgard windows were installed in 2004. They are fantastic. They save energy and make the outside noises unhearable. We really like the Milgard windows and would recommend them to others.
