I recently had my old aluminum windows and patio door that were installed over 30 years ago replaced with new Milgard windows and a new patio door from Soco Window & Door in Austin. I did quite a bit of research on the internet about available replacement windows and doors and I chose Milgard because their products are made in the USA, offer high quality, look great and come with a full lifetime warranty. I later found out that Builder Magazine has named Milgard the Brand Leader in Overall Vinyl Quality for 2012 and several previous years. They even won a design award for the window closing mechanism.
Zach, the owners, came out to my house and told me about the different options. He was very professional and there was no pressure to make a quick buying decision. I selected the Milgard Tuscany Series vinyl windows. These windows come with dual glazed insulated glass and various other options including tempered glass. After I selected all the options Zach sent me a detailed quote for the entire project to replace all windows and the patio door. After I was ready to get the project started, their installer came out to take the final measures and to show me a sample window of the Tuscany series. We also discussed the options for the window sills and trim. They recommended African mahogany treated with teak wood oil because it would be a nice contrast to the white windows. They told me that Soco Window & Door has the all wood pieces custom made by a local mill and they can offer the sills in various other wood types depending on the design of the existing interior of the home.
After Soco Window & Door ordered the windows it took around 2 weeks to get them made and shipped. They had a very professional crew deliver and install all windows within a couple of days. Everything went perfect. Since this was a remodel and not new construction I was concerned about a big mess inside the house from the install but the install guys created no mess at all and cleaned up after themselves. The new windows look great ! After the windows were installed they came out to bring me the wood for the sills and trim so I could apply the teak wood oil. A week later they came back out to install the sills and trim. They were right. The African mahogany looks stunning against the windows. In fact I like the African mahogany so much that I am in the process to replace all the floor boards in my house with the same type of wood.
Needless to say buying my new Milgard windows from Soco Window & Door was a great experience and I would definitely recommend the company to anyone looking for new windows. Zach and his crew are all very professional and go the extra mile to make sure everything is done perfectly. Thanks for a job well done !

Soco Window & Door has been a delight to work with. They saved us from the ‘pit of doom’ working with another window contractor who took our money and never placed our order. Everything about our experience with Soco Window & Door has been extremely professional and we’re so grateful we found them. They went above and beyond to keep us comfortable and informed. It’s clear they care about what they are doing and their positive energy is infectious, (it’s the sort of bug you’re not afraid to catch)!
Their showroom is also fantastically helpful and they will spend a great deal of time walking you through the different products while being thoughtful of your pricepoint. Don’t forget to take a moment to say hello to Köl when you go by the showroom.
They are the only window company that I could wholeheartedly recommend all around and I would do so strongly. New Construction, Replacement, big project, small project, on a budget or looking for top of the line, they will take great care of you. We look forward to growing our relationship with them.
