Pella Lawsuit 2008

CHICAGO, Feb 20,
2008 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ —
The following statement was issued
today by the law firm Freed & Weiss
LLC:
A Chicago federal court denied a
motion to dismiss a proposed class
action lawsuit against Pella
Corporation that alleges Pella’s
ProLine series of windows suffer from
a design flaw that has resulted in
widespread failures. Saltzman et. al. v.
Pella Corporation 06CV4481 (N.D. Ill.,
March 20, 2007). The lawsuit also
covers the “250 Series” and “450
Series” windows sold through major
retailers such as Lowe’s. Specifically,
the suit alleges that Pella ProLine
aluminum-clad windows are prone to
water penetration resulting in rotting of
the internal wood frame beneath the aluminum cladding. Wood rot requires replacement of the window sash
and/or frame. Because of the aluminum cladding, such damage is not always visible to the homeowner.
If you have Pella windows, wish to discuss the lawsuit or have any questions concerning your rights, please
contact Freed & Weiss at (312) 220-0000 or e-mail info@freedweiss.com. Information is also available by
