The lesson here is don't buy vinyl clad! Spend the extra money and get aluminum clad. #sadderbutwiser

Hello, I put the MW windows in my house. They are junk. I am sad to say that I am in the trade. The lumber I dealt with raved about them. Are there any lawsuits against the company? Jon

My house is 14 years old in North Carolina. I have the original wood sash non-low e MW that have been popular with builders and Stock Building supply. I can tell you that if you have a brick home and do not stay ahead of caulk and paint these have a lifespan of about 8 years or less. Your only real options are to replace with the Jefferson 300s sashes ((plygem AKA MW) or bring in the "replacement". Would be nice to hear from anyone that has replaced these with other brands and had success

I'M an independent contractor called in by home owner to investigate rotted trim. Upon investigation it was learned that the sill on M W windows is not seal to keep water from entering and rotting the sill and bottom of side jamb. The entire complex of 200 units has window problems. Also the seals are leaking and the sashes are rotting out at the bottom rails. During first phase of building ( 1998) the Realtor told builder of the problems. Any recourse that you know of?
