I would like to know if anyone has taken MW to court yet? and if any outcome has happened?

We have a modular home built by Excel in 2003 and had problems like everyone else from the start drafty hard to open and close and so on.

Had factory rep come out and replace foam and felts to the point I can't close windows to lock as the sill is bent up. Unhappy face.

I have called and called and called only to get the run around from Kale and company.

Today I have called my lawyer and to serve them it will be a few hundred dollars but like others I have many windows and many problems.

They won't step up and the warranty is suppose to cover this.

Since I posted on this web site,I have

received many comments on my problem

but, as yet have not found the problems from all of the respondents I

believe, Do Not have the windows I have. Most seem to be in manufactured

homes (which mine is not) and I wonder

if most of the respondents windows come from some window company on the

east coast. Mine are wood casement and

are manufactured at Warroad MN. Please respond to let me know if the

windows you speak of are the Marvin

Window, hence MW windows. Thank you

Marvin and MW windows are NOT the same manufacturer.

Our MW windows are "rotten" and we will never purchase anything from MW Patriot again:

We are condidering replacing our windows with Marvin Infinity windows:

My home is 14 years old and when we built it - we were told these MW vinyl clad windows were the best made and the most expensive. Well we live on the coast in South Carolina - can you say hurricane??? - and we have had a time. They are ALL rotting - we have replaced sashes, but of course the sills and everything are rotten now. Can anyone tell me if they got anywhere with MW?

Sort of...We live on the Chesapeake Bay and we were sold 2 casements and 3 double hung lower windows at not much abocve cost. I took photos of the issues and sent them to Cale at MW and he quickly replied with the offer. I installed them myself, easily. Our originals are 16 years old. We don't know the future of the rest of them or the brand new ones we had installed in an addition 6 years ago but MW offered a quick and affordable solution. There is a class-action suit in progress with info on this site. You are far from alone.....Good luck

I have had 32 sashes replaced. My home is only 4 years old. I have water damage on the sills but don't know if I caught the problem in time enough to prevent rot. They tried to tell me that the water damage was from condensation! LOL

So far I have not seen any more damage but I am not holding out hope that there will not be problems in the future.

I built a modular home using Penn lyons as the modular company and MW windows in 2004. They have replaced all windows once and replaced the seals on another occassion. The second set of windows are already showing signs of water damage. the service altered the windows by placing silicone around the edges. Does this void the warranty? I also have structural damage from an oval window that has been leaking since day one. I want MW to refund what those windows cost to apply to a better window like Anderson. Any thoughts?
