Weather Shield (Formerly Crestline) — double pane windows
This company is shameless in it's avoidance of responsibility. The community I live in in Apple Valley, MN, was constructed in 2003. Beginning a few years after initial construction, the windows supplied by this company started to show mold growing between the panes in nearly every residence in which they were installed. The HOA contacted the company for a remedy since it was clearly a manufacturing error. Initially they denied responsibility. Then they said they would offer replacement windows at a 50% discount without installation. It turns out they inflated the retail price for this "remedy" so that the ultimate price paid was essentially retail. The threat of a class action lawsuit was raised and the company offered 70% on such an inflated retail price that the HOA was able to find a comparable competitor's bid for less than their supposed 70% off.
There is no question that the failure of their windows began in their factory as a result of their error in manufacture. Yet, rather than stand by their product they weaseled and avoided and deceived to avoid their responsibility. SAVE YOURSELF THE RISK OF BEING LEFT HIGH AND DRY as dozens of my fellow homeowners have been and AVOID WEATHER SHIELD at all costs.
