I have Vetter windows and they are rotting. I spoke with a window replacement company and was told to get clear silicone caulking and caulk the outside of the windows aroung the area that the glass meets the aluminum clad. He suspects moisture is getting in under the aluminum clad. He stated the aluminum clad is rolled in Vetter windows. What do people think?

Hello, many company's have (glazing leak) problems. clear silicone work's well (cap-Beading) unless your windows are (soft) if their black with mildew but still solid, silicone cap beading work's well. if their soft, replace sash. Also look at frame parts.

I have Vetter windows in a home that was built in 1998. I have already refinished them once about 5 years ago on the inside. They are now past the point of fixing. Do I have any recourse with this company? I have not contacted them yet. What should I do? Bob Villa said he is working on a claim against Vetter and wanted to hear from homeowners who had them but I can't figure how to reach him directly.

I would like to know, from those who've experienced rotting, if you tend to keep your curtains or shades drawn most of the time? I see so many gripes about rotting and condensation across so many window lines, that I find it hard to believe it's totally the window's fault. I had condensation on my Marvin wood/clad windows which was causing discoloration of the grilles, and have discovered that I think it was because I kept the blinds shut all the time. I thought I was being more energy conscious, but in doing so, it trapped air between the blind and window and encouraged condensation.

I have a double hung upper window that has rotted on the bottom of the top frame. I don't know where to go to have this fixed. The windows have 6 frames inside and out. The outside frame also need to be repaired or replaced. Help !

We built a home in 2000 with Vetter Windows. Have had leaking from the tops of some of the windows since day one, especially if there is wind and rain. They came out for awhile but then when they could not remedy the problem they just said that they were installed wrong by the builder and they could not do anything for us. We now have a couple of windows that have warped/rotted not sure which but they need to be replaced immediately. Very unhappy with these windows.

I found this online as an address to order parts for vetter window owners. I also found Peachtree doors & windows is their sister company handling their customer warranty requests.
