Alside windows - broken seals
We purchased our house in 2005. The previous owners changed most of the windows in the house to Alside. They are all casement windows. That's as much as I know about these windows, since the previous owners left us no paperwork on them and there aren't any markings on the windows. We had to hunt down the previous owners to figure out what brand they were. But I digress.
Out of the 8 windows (of various sizes) 4 have broken seals in at least 1 pane. One window has 2 out of 3 panes cloudy.
I have contacted the company and they're sending me paperwork for the warranty exchange (as far as I understand).
I am wondering if anyone else has had these problems. When I noticed one window with this damage, I chucked it up to chance. But 4 out of 8? That's not a coincidence! That seems to point more to the quality of the window.
I guess I am worried that if I replace these damaged windows with more Alside windows, the same thing will happen in the future. What do you think?
Or is it that I just got a bad batch?
