Has anyone been able to get any place with Vetter? I have over 40 windows in my home and they are rotting. There was talk about a class action suit--has anyone made any progress on setting that up? Does nayone have a contact number for Vetter? Thanks for any info you can provide.

Vetter has gone out of business. Guess why.
I have the same issue with 40 windows all rotting.

I installed Vetter Windows in my house in 1995 when it was built and I have windows that have rot in them and popping noise from them when the weather changes.

Same issues here in Western New York. Vinyl clad wood windows rotting from the inside. Has anyone had any luck with repairs? Several totally disintegrated, many very soft and probably wont make another year. Nervous about opening any others.

I am so bummed, built home in 1994 vetter windows, all are rotted and molded. Must find out about the class action law suit. Someone has to pay for this horrible financial loss.

The Vetter windows and sliding door are 20+ years. A contractor and I found issues with the wood and cross members. A good sanding and Helmsman Minwax poly PLUS hot glue-gun the weather strip back into the wood seems to help prolong the life of the window's wood. The worst is on the weather side of the house, Western NY winters are terrible. The sliding door is being pulled from the frame and with luck, Home Depot may have the rollers to eliminate the clicking rattle. After a total sanding for the sliding door, it is ready for fresh stain and Helmsman. The objective is to protect the wood from the weather and prolong the window or sliding door's life. My guess is the life expectancy is about 25 years on these products without TLC. Good Luck.

16 years ago we had our house built with numerous Vetter windows. They allowed water to seep behind them and have caused substantial damage to the house. I am beside myself heartbroken because apparently insurance companies over the years knew that stuff like this was happening, put in these seepage exclusions, didn’t tell us (you should read your policy every year, apparently), and now I have no recourse but to take out a substantial loan for the repair work and no recourse. I’ve been told that Vetter apparently filed for bankruptcy before a class action suit could come to fruition.
