Welcome to the Information Website for the
Pella ® ProLine ® Windows Litigation Settlement
If you are a current owner of a home or other structure that contains Pella ProLine Casement Windows, you may qualify for benefits still available from a class action settlement.
A settlement has been reached with Pella Corporation and Pella Windows and Doors, Inc. ("Defendants") about Pella ProLine brand casement, awning and/or transom windows (including 250 and 450 Series) manufactured by Pella Corporation between 1991 and 2006 (“Pella ProLine Casement Windows”). The Settlement covers possible water intrusion and damage to class members’ windows and property.
Plaintiffs allege that Pella ProLine Casement Windows manufactured by Pella Corporation contain defects that have caused water intrusion and resulting damage to the windows and Plaintiffs’ property; that some Pella ProLine Casement Window owners have paid for repairs or replacements of their subject windows; and that some owners will require future repairs or replacements of their subject windows. Defendants do not believe that there is any defect in these windows and assert numerous defenses to Plaintiffs’ claims. A copy of the Settlement Agreement (“Agreement”) is available on the Important Documents page of this website, and describes details about the Settlement.
The deadline for filing a Claim Form or an Arbitration Form has expired.
The Settlement is currently pending appeal in the United States Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit. As a result, timely submitted Arbitration Forms will not be reviewed and timely submitted Claim Forms seeking benefits for repairs made prior to December 10, 2012 will not be resolved until all appeals have been heard and ruled upon, and the Settlement is deemed Final. Claimants who timely submitted Claim Forms seeking benefits for Eligible Damage unrepaired as of December 10, 2012 will continue to have their claims for repair and replacement benefits processed during the appeals period. All claims for cash benefits will not be resolved until all appeals have been heard and ruled upon, and the Settlement is deemed Final. Please continue to check back here for more information or updates.
If you did not file a Claim Form or an Arbitration Form and if you satisfy all of the requirements to become an Eligible Claimant (as defined in the Agreement and described in FAQ 8), to obtain any benefits for repairs for Eligible Damage (as defined in the Agreement and described in FAQ 8) contact Pella Customer Service at 888-977-6387.
