Brent 11 is on the right track, we have a similar problem with windows leaking and causing sill and sheathing damage and ours were installed properly and maintained properly. currently waiting on them to reply to rquest to replace 9 windows...live on a Lake and Lakeside windows all failed
My biggest problem with Semco is that a lot of the blue springs ? (in the track) broke and I have a lot of windows that slide down on their own. Mine are the tilt out double hung. I have numerous windows with these problems. One actually fell out completely during a storm, and hit me in the head, while laying on the couch. Makes it very hard to tilt them to clean. I need help when I clean them, because of them not being level. We also have sticks inside to hold the windows up. The springs to tilt windows have come out. They were installed in 1996, and have had some problems for quite a few years. I need someone from Semco to come out and see if they can be repaired
We have 48 semco windows 1-casement, 45 double hungs, and a large angle bay window and they all have problems. Bay window has a air leak, windows leak depending on which way the rain is driving from, some of the storms are rotting, and all the screens have to be replaced they are disinegrating. Are home is 10 years old and I think its terrible that these windows look the way they do. Semco windows are nothing but junk!!!! But I guess you get what you pay for.
