Our Ryan home will be 18 years old this fall. We had all of the windows replaced by another company 7 years ago except in the garage. Big mistake! The style of our original Patriot single hung aluminum windows with the locking mechanism at the bottom of the lower sash has long been replaced and am looking for the literature for how to reinstall one of the lower sashes. The window stuck on one side when we tried to open it recently and by tilting it came out (safety feature to remove window in the event of an emergency). Unfortunately, the side weights/runners (cube shaped rectangular bar) fell out and we have no idea how to reinstall them properly.

Patriot windows are the worst windows I have ever had. They are difficult to close and lock. They have moisture between the panes of glass. Too hot to touch in the summertime. Cold air leaks in in the winter and frost inside the house on the windows. Due to poor quality of these windows there are way too many homeowners paying too much to heat and cool their homes.

Does anyone know if there is a class action suit against Patriot windows? It seems like we should get one started. How can they continue to provide the lowest quality window in the industry. I don't understand why so many builders continue to use these windows.
