MW Windows Class Action Lawsuit
One class action lawsuit has already been filed in Massachusetts, alleging that the windows are failing, sometimes on their first day of use, even if installed properly in ideal conditions. According to the suit, the windows were defectively designed in that they cannot be properly sealed. As a result, water and air can leak through the sashes, causing the wood portions of the sash and other wooden parts of the windows to rot, according to the suit. Allegedly, additional design defects have also allowed water to leak inside the property.
Failure to Uphold Warranties?
It has been alleged that MW Manufacturers is failing to uphold its purported 10-year, 20-year or lifetime warranties. According to complaints, the company has uniformly failed to pay their customers for the full measure of their losses. The class action lawsuit against MW Manufacturers claims that company executives disregarded this conduct because the influx of warranty claims was not included in their “cost structure” for sale of the windows. In one of its most egregious claims, the lawsuit states that the company knew that the windows were defective and would not perform as advertised and hid this from consumers. Allegedly, MW fraudulently concealed the windows’ defects and blamed their failure on improper installation.
