Weather Shield Defective Product Class Actions

Weather ShieldIf you own a commercial or residential property that has Weather Shield windows or doors installed, you may want to follow the progress of the two following class action lawsuits over alleged defects.

 

The first class action lawsuit, Pagano, et. Al. v. Weather Shield Manufacturing, Inc., alleges Weather Shield’s “Visions 2000” vinyl horizontal sliding windows are defective. The lawsuit claims these alleged defects have either caused the windows to fail and cause damage or will, to a substantial certainty, cause them to fail in the future and cause damage to the home or building they are installed. The California Weather Shield class action lawsuit has been in litigation since March 2008 and was granted certification last week for a California statewide class of individuals who own homes or buildings that have Weather Shield Visions 2000 windows installed.

 

The second class action lawsuit, Gavron v. Weather Shield Mfg., Inc et al, was filed June 25, 2010 in the Southern District of Florida. The Florida class action lawsuit alleges Weather Shield’s LifeGuard Legacy windows and doors contain defects that include, but are not limited to, defective weather-stripping that allows water to penetrate the window’s frame and into the wall and interior of the home, causing damage such as rotting, delaminating, glass distortion and general deterioration of the doors and windows. The Florida Weather Shield class action is brought on behalf of all Florida residents who own or owned property that have or had Weather Shield LifeGuard Legacy windows and doors installed.

 

Both the California and Florida class action lawsuits against Weather Shield are seeking punitive damages, restitution and refunds for class members. Weather Shield is a Wisconsin-based manufacturer of window and door system products for the residential and commercial building industry worldwide.

    We have leaking Weather Shield windows in Colorado, rotten wood interior.

    We, too, have badly leaking Visions 2000 windows, resulting in mold and rot. Also have had to replace several glass units due to argon seal leak causing moisture and clouding between the panes. Still have several more to replace, but company is slow to respond despite replacement being under warranty. Very frustrated with Weather Shield!
