MI Windows and Doors, Inc., based in Pennsylvania, is one of the largest manufacturers of vinyl, aluminum and cellular windows and doors in the country. Marketing materials for the company’s 8500/3500 single hung windows promise that these products are free from defects in material and workmanship. However, according to a class action lawsuit filed in North Carolina Superior Court, the 8500/3500 single hung windows contain a defect that results in loss of seal at the bead along the bottom of the double pane glass. This allows water to enter the inside of the window, as well as the structures that are fitted with these windows. This water intrusion can lead to the formation of mineral deposits and mold, as well as damage to other property within the home.
The lawsuit also alleges that MI Windows and Doors knew of this defect, but has not notified all homeowners or offered any remedy. Further, MI Windows and Doors does not include the labor or installation costs associated with window replacement in its warranty coverage for the 8500/3500 single hung windows, and it does not provide warranty coverage for subsequent purchasers of homes fitted with these windows. As such, owners of homes containing these windows have incurred substantial costs for labor and installation of replacement windows. They have also had to repair or replace other property in their home because the windows allow water leaks to drip onto their walls and floors. The values of homes fitted with these windows have also been diminished because of the alleged defect and accompanying damage.
