Complaints alleging MI Windows manufacturing defects have led to a class action lawsuit against the company for a variety of offenses. Allegedly, MI Windows and Doors’ 8500/4300/3500 single hung windows contain a manufacturing defect that results in a loss of seal at the bead along the bottom of the double pane glass. This defect allows water to leak into the structure the window is in, resulting in mold growth, rotting, and mineral deposits. Due to these occurrences, the windows do not perform to the level expected by consumers at purchase, result in damage to the structural integrity of the structures, and decrease home and property values.

Allegedly, this defect allows water to leak into the home, possibly leading to property damage even more extensive than just the windows and their structures. These problems have led consumers to spend money to install replacement windows and to repair or replace other property inside their homes when the windows began to leak water onto their floors and walls. The lawsuit alleges that consumers would not have purchased these products if they had known of these defects beforehand.
The MI Windows class action lawsuit, filed in the state of New York, alleges negligence, breach of implied warranty of merchantability, breach of implied warranty of fitness for a particular purpose, fraudulent misrepresentation, fraudulent concealment, unjust enrichment and seeking damages and declaratory relief in connection with defective windows designed, manufactured, marketed, advertised, and sold by MI Windows and Doors, Inc. The lawsuit alleges that the company knew of the defect before sale and did not disclose the risk to consumers.
