We've got ten semco windows that have rotted out. They were properly painted installed etc. DON'T buy this product.

Please give more details - Were they wood (I presume)? Was there condensation that caused the rotting? Condensation isn't necessarily the window's fault. Newer homes are built practically air tight, so humidity levels are greater. Depending on the indoor vs. outdoor temps where you live and the humidity level, that could be the cause of condensation. (You'd be surprised how low the humidity can be to still get condensation) Or, if you had window treatments (blinds, shades, etc.) covering the window most of the time, they trap air, which can cause condensation. Just fyi.
