Milgard Window Track

Hi all,

We are purchasing a house with milgard horizontal sliding windows and one window is missing the track along the bottom, inside the frame. As a result the sliding panes do not fit properly or slide well.

Does anyone know where I can buy a strip of track?? It is I think PVC and has a wide square top cross-section.

Sorry i cant give more specifics, dont know much about windows!!

Thanks,

Welcome to the forums!

Have you tried stipulating that the seller will make this repair?

If that's not an option, a picture or two will help us see what you have. See How To Put Pictures In Your Post.

ive installed Milgard for years. get on their web site and you should be able to have the part shipped to you, free of charge 90% of the time. takes all of 4 mins to install a leveler. youll need the #'s of the existing side.

Thanks fo the advice! Is it called a leveler then, not a track?

The sellers live in Finland so they are giving credit instead of making repairs.

Open or remove the sliding sashes from the frame and look on the sides or top of the window frame for an NFRC sticker that might tell you the model # of the window, then contact the manufacturer directly (perhaps via their website service dept) and tell them what you need. They will likely need a measurement of the exact length if you don't have the original window size or order #.

Milgard doesnt label their windows, post a pic of it and ill tell you how to find what youre looking for. if its a single hung chances are its a Style Line.

Sorry, should have said "permanent AAMA frame label". All windows are required to have one, maybe you just haven't seen one on theirs yet. They are sometimes hidden behind a snap in frame cover.

Thanks for the advice guys, we get the keys at the end of the week so hopefully this will be an easy fix! With any luck they will be labeled. They look a good 10yrs old at least, the house is 1997 maybe they are original.
