At A Glance

This Alert Affects
Consumers who own homes or businesses outfitted with Proline, Architect and/or Designer Series windows manufactured by Pella Corporation.
What's the Problem?
It has been alleged that water can penetrate the windows, causing the interior wood to rot.
Which Products Are Affected?
Lawsuits have been filed over Pella's Architect, Designer, and Proline ranges of windows. In June 2014, the 7th U.S. Court of Appeals overturned a settlement involving Pella's Proline windows for issues unrelated to claims that the product is defective. The overturned settlement does not mean Pella is protected against future lawsuits over its Proline windows and does not affect ongoing litigation against Architect and Designer windows.
Manufacturer
Pella Corporation.
Type of Lawsuit
Class Action
