California Replacement Windows, a MILGARD® Authorized Dealer offers a wide selection of MILGARD® Replacement Windows and MILGARD® New Construction Windows.

New construction windows are used when a brand new home or a new addition to a home is being built. Since the studs of the home are exposed the window can be installed directly on to the frame by use of a nail fin frame, which means it is nailed into the framing of the home. MILGARD® custom designs each window to your homes exact specifications, which means a MILGARD® Authorized Dealer such as California Replacement Windows can be very creative in the sizing and shape of your windows.


MILGARD® New Construction Windows can also be used for a home remodel project, this requires your contractor to remove the exterior materials around the window in order to expose the studs of the home to install the window. Using a new construction window for a remodel project is possible but is a more involved process for your contractor to ensure the exact match of exterior materials. New construction windows are a good option if you think the studs and frame of the window should be replaced because of damage, or if you are planning on replacing the exterior of your home such as new siding or stucco.


Alternatively, MILGARD® Replacement Windows are an excellent option for a quick home improvement project when there are budget or time constraints. Replacement windows (also referred to as retrofit windows) have been developed so a contractor does not have to remove the exterior materials of the home in order to install the window; they are measured to fit in an existing window opening and will only replace the actual window itself. This saves time and labor costs with all the benefits of new windows.

Both MILGARD® Retrofit Windows and MILGARD® New Construction windows have specific advantages designed for different installation methods.

For either new construction or retrofit windows, be sure to look for certain features that differentiate between high and low-quality windows. Some key elements to look for include:


  • The NFRC Label: National Fenestration Rating Council (NFRC) is a non-profit organization that administers the only independent rating and labeling system for the energy performance of windows, doors, skylights and attachment products.

  • Metal lock components that fit together well—stainless steel is recommended because it's highly durable and doesn't rust.

  • Matching colors on all components to enhance aesthetics.

  • Heat-welded joints, as opposed to the window sash and frame being mechanically fastened and held together by screws, brackets and caulk.
