What’s the difference between a Full and a Limited Warranty? The simplest differentiation is that a Full Warranty meets the federal minimum standards for comprehensive warranties, and a Limited Warranty does not. How can you tell if a warranty is Full or Limited? As you read window warranties, think about the following questions.
1. Is the warranty free of any limitations on the
duration of implied warranties?
2. Is the warranty service free of charge, including such costs as returning the product or removing or reinstalling the product when necessary?
3. Does the warranty provide your choice of either a replacement or full refund if, after a reasonable number of tries, the product is unable to be repaired?
4. Are you free from the responsibility of performing any duty as a precondition for receiving service (such as a warranty registration card) with the exception of requesting the needed service?
If you’ve answered “no” to any of the above four questions, it is not a Full Warranty. It is a Limited Warranty.

Options that complement your home. Dramatically change the look of your home with these style options. Step 1– Color options With Tuscany™ Series windows, the color of all of your window components matches perfectly because we create all of our frames, grids and hardware to have the same color tone. Choose white or tan.

Step 2– Interior Woodgrain options Afterr you have chosen white or tan, you may choose to add an optional Woodgrain. Select either Light or Medium Oak.
* LIGHT OAK
With optional Woodgrains, you can enjoy both the look of wood and all of the benefits off vinyl. Unlike wood, Milgard Tuscany Series windows won’t rot, crack, peel, bend, warp orr stick due to expansion or contraction. Like wood, Milgard windows can match your home’s interior trim.
Step 3–Grid options Get even more creative with grids. By simply altering the grid design, you can dramatically impact yourr home’s curb appeal. Below is a sample of many grid options available.
CONFIGURATION First, choose the configuration that best complements the style of your home.
TYPE AND SIZES Then, choose a grid type and size. Many of our grids are placed inside of our dual-glazed insulated glass, making our windows easy to clean. All of our grids are perfectly color matched to the color of the window frame. 5/8" and 7/8" FLAT GRID Our narrower ﬂat grid works equally well in traditional and contemporary homes.
1-1/16" and 7/8" SCULPTURED GRID This grid is ideal for older homes or newer homes with more traditional designs.
SIMULATED DIVIDED LITES** Very few manufacturers have the technical ability or desire that Milgard has to offer perfectly matched Simulated Divided Lights (SDL). SDLs are 7/8" wide grids placed on the outside and inside glass panes. A third grid is placed in between the glass panes givingg your window a more authentic divided lite look. SDLs are a perfect touch for traditional and historic-looking homes. * Colors may vary slightly due to printing limitations. ** Simulated Divided Lites are not available in all markets. 12
Step 4– Decorative glass options Add a decorative flairr to your home or give yourself more privacy with decorative glass options. Of all of the glass options, obscure glass gives you the greatest privacy. For added peace of mind, all of our obscured glass options can be tempered for safety. Choose from many styles, some of which are shown here. Ask your dealerr to show you all of your options.
Step 5– Specialty window options Add visual interest and increase the curb appeal of your home with specialty windows such as a bay, bow or garden windows. Like all of our windows, specialty windows are built to look great and work well for years to come.
