Pella Proline Windows "250 and 450 Series" ....Any experience you can share?
April 5, 2013 in Other
We recently purchased a larger home with Pella ProLine 450 Series windows throughout. Many are custom. Not too long ago, we found out that these windows (those manufactured as Pella ProLine brand casement, awning and/or transom windows (including 250 and 450 Series) and manufactured by Pella Corporation between 1991 and 2006, are defective and failing due to water intrusion at the seams of the exterior vinyl clad. First, the seals will fail and the window fogs. Then, ... the wood window casement eventually rots out. Pella is in the middle of a Class Action Lawsuit over these poorly constructed windows. As new homeowners, we wanted to reach out to find other homeowners who may have some experience in dealing with Pella and this lawsuit. We are unsure about what step to take here. The information is unclear to us. For more information, go to www.windowsettlement.com
