Milgard Windows vs Andersen
Let’s take a look at how Milgard windows vs Anderson stack up against one another in terms of their overall company structure, the windows and doors they sell, how they market their products, and on cost.
Milgard Windows vs Andersen
Milgard Windows And Doors are quite a well-known company in the U.S. - particularly out on the West Coast. They began back in 1958 in Tacoma, Washington. The company has a number of factories, three of which are located in California, one in Arizona, and one in Washington state. Several years ago, Milgard was purchased by MITER brands, which owns a number of building supply and window replacement companies. (MITER is most closely associated with MI Windows.)
What They Sell
Milgard sells a handful of windows/doors. Their two most popular series include the Tuscany and the Trinsic, both of which are vinyl windows. The company probably sells a 10x multiplier of these two windows over anything else on their product lineup. The reason for this is that both of these series are priced out such that they’re in the range of many US homeowners looking for a decent to good vinyl window at a reasonable price point. Besides the Trinsic and Tuscany, the company also sells their entry level Styleline series (vinyl), as well as their premium Homemaker series (also vinyl). All in all, Milgard sells these four vinyl window lines.
How They Market
Milgard markets their windows/doors in a very traditional manner. That is they use an extensive dealer network to sell to local markets. They also sell to large building companies who use Milgard's vinyl windows for large commercial and residential developments. Milgard does some direct-to-consumer sales on the Tuscany series through some home improvement stores.
In terms of pricing, Milgard windows prices will run 5 to 8 on a scale of 1 to 10 for their vinyl windows. I hope this makes sense. The Styleline will be a 5 out of 10. In 2023, I estimate vinyl window cost at $400 - $1200 fully installed. Their Trinsic and Tuscany series will be in the 6 to 7 range, while their Homemaker will be an 8 on a scale from 1 to 10. The company's Ultra will be a 7 or 8 out of 10 for fiberglass window costs. Finally, their aluminum series will be a 7 out of 10 when compared with other aluminum series costs.
Milgard Tuscany Cost: $$
Anderson Windows prices are going to be toward the top of that wood window price price. So their 200 series will be a 7 out of 10 and their 400 series will be an 8 or 9 out of 10. The A series will usually be a 10 out of 10, so about as expenses a wood clad window as you can get.
Andersen 400 Cost: $$$$

Milgard vs Andersen 100
Hey guys, curious what you thought was the better deal between an Anderson 100 series window and the Tuscany window? I have bids for both and they are pretty similar with the 100 series being just a little bit more expensive. Thanks so much love the site.

Debbie, I think I would say the Anderson 100 series is the better option, depending on how much more expensive it is. Doesn’t sound like it’s appreciably more expensive so I would say go with the Anderson 100 series over the Tuscany. Probably a better long-term value there.
