Leaking sliding patio door

We had a Peechtree patio door installed several years ago. After about six months we started noticing the floor looking wet at about the center of the door. the problem continued every time it rained from the south which is the side of the house the door is on. so I got out the caulk gun and began caulking every seem that I thought could be the potential leak area. Didn't help so I pulled off the siding from around the door and installed flashing all around the door and more calk. Still the same result! Now frustration has really set in and with no other ideas of a remedy remaining, we put towels down in front of the door every time it rained. Eventually our hardwood floor got ruined, so now we are in the process of installing a new floor at great expense. so today was the day we took out the door so we could install a new door and I wanted to see if my suspicions were correct that the door had to be defective from the time it was installed to now, and I was right! on the bottom of the door where they install the screws through the sill plate into the non moving door, there was one screw that missed the door and went through the drain channel which in turn allowed water to get access to the sill plate and eventually rot the wood which in turn caused the water to leak onto my floor and the rest is history. So I not only had to put down a new floor, I also had to buy another expensive door! From what I've been reading about this company, it seems to me that a complaint to them would be a waist of time. Any ideas as of how to get satisfaction in the form of compensation would be greatly appreciated!

PEACHTREE Worst windows ever!!!

We built our home in 2002 and spent a fortune on PUKETREE windows. I have spent well over 100 hours replacing, glazing painting etc. these lousy windows. I have replaced over 30 window of which PUKTREE sent me the glass free, except they expected me to pay outrageous $$$ for shipping, this was done due to a LIFETIME warranty on the glass. Well, some jerk at PUKETREE decided they would no longer honor their legal commitment and said they will no longer provide the glass. Go and buy it yourself. By the way I spent not well in excess of 100 hours doing the labor to replace the windows but also an easy 75 hours begging and pleading for PUKETREE to fulfill the obligation and provide the 30+ windows I finally did receive. It has caused SO MUCH STRESS in our lives that I would be happy to join a class action lawsuit if there is one out there. I want PUKETREE to provide the funds to have Anderson windows replace all of their CRAPPY, SUBSTANDARD GARBAGE that they installed in our dream home.HELP!!!!

Peachtree Windows

We built our dream home in 2004. We paid a large amount of money for the bronze aluminum clad Series 500 low e argon gas easy care Peachtree Windows. We had always had Pella in every other home we have owned in other areas of the country and were told by the builder that Peachtree was just has good. These windows are junk. The warrenty is useless, the argon gas has escaped from two of the windows so they have a constant cloudy film and I am told all I can do is replace the windows. This will not be easy or cheap being the windows are on the third floor. I am all for a class action lawsuit for inferior quality and a useless warranty for something that was supposed to last a long time.

Peach Tree Windows

We build our house in 1992. All the windows are Peach Tree along with our 14' double slider. Ever since we have experienced rot around the house. The exterior window pine trim boards, and clapboards under the windows. Some window trim I have replaced 3 times. From a close examination our carpenter and I have discovered that the bottom of the window's exterior seems to be tilted toward the house and thus the moisture runs down through the corner joints and back into the house. I have now gone around and caulked the crap out of the joints. What junk! I am all in favor of a class action suit.

lock not working

One of my handle locks on a french door is locked and cannot be opened. I have had two locksmiths come - one tried but was unable to figure out what to do with it, and the other one looked at it, said he only works on Anderson windows, and left. I would greatly appreciate a contact for getting this repaired. I have not had any problems with my french doors, other than this issue. My email is belinda.brewster@sbcglobal.net if anyone knows who to contact to repair the locking mechanism.. It is a Peachtree door.

Warranty

I have an issue with defective Peachtree windows and found that their website has been shut down and telephone numbers discontinued. Weathershield Corporation says that they no longer honor the lifetime warranty and I should look into just replacing the glass myself. I would join a class action lawsuit if anyone is interested!

Defective Peachtree Windows

We built our dream hone in 2004-2005 and installed all Peachtree Windows and Doors. They were suppose to be easy to operate and clean, well, they are falling apart, the hardware that holds the window up have broken, each time I clean them something else breaks. I have dole rods holding up two of the windows, I afraid to open or close any of the others because they may do the same thing, they are leaking air between the windows and have increased our heating bill this year, which being retired we cannot afford. Our dream home is now a cold and drafty nightmare with dirty windows. We have two bay windows, the one is leaking and I have spots all over the window. I have tried to get help from Weathershield and they say Peachtree went bankrupt, but I still see them for sale. So much for a lifetime warranty, both these companies should be out of business and be paying to install new windows. and it looks like I not the only one. We need to get together and do something, or other companies will do the same thing.

Peachtree Doors and windows

Built my house in 2004. Had 45 Peachtree windows installed (13 casements and the rest double hung or picture windows), as well as 2 patio doors. Experienced water and air penetration almost from the beginning. A customer rep came and caulked the mitre joints on the aluminum clad exteriors. I have had to replace the two Peachtree patio sliding doors that have rotted through my hardwood floors and damaged the sub-flooring. I have sent numerous letters to the parent company, Weather Shield, to no avail. They now tell me that they have decided to not honor their warranty for any window manufactured prior to 2009. This is in violation of the Magnuson/Moss Federal Act that prohibits companies from modifying or deleting warranties. Weather Shield also states that due to the fact that Peachtree doesn't actually make windows anymore (the Peachtree brand still exists but Weather Shield is the manufacturer), they have no assets to pay for warranties. This company, Weather Shield, is a disgusting company to do business with and I recommend that any potential customer or contractor avoid them like the plague..

NonStop Warranty Worthless

Windows were purchased in 1992. Had minor issue in first 60 days with fogging of one windows. Contacted Peachtree and they sent representative and replaced glass unit. A few years later I contacted Peachtree about seals on Peachtree Door. Once again, no problems in getting replacement seals shipped. Now, I have a closure gear that has stripped, what should be a $10 part is a $50 nonwarranted part as they now have no record of my purchase, prior repairs and refuse to accept original invoice as proof of purchase. Peachtree was apparently bought out by the Schield Family and has chosen to cut losses by refusing warranty claims. Any other consumers out there with peachtree products that would like to start a class action suit?

Non-stop warranty never got going!

Peachtree's "Non-Stop Warranty" was introduced January 1, 1990. The Non-Stop Warranty is non-transferable. Products purchased between January 1990 and December 1994 required homeowners to register their products to qualify for the Non-Stop Warranty. Peachtree does not provide labor or labor expenses incurred to remove or replace any defective product, or any defective components thereof.

From 1995 product care book.

Your Peachtree products, identified above, are guaranteed for as long as you own them to be free of defects in material or workmanship that might unreasonably affect their performance in normal usage when installed and maintained in accordance with the manufacturer's instructions.

This Non-Stop Limited Warranty extends only to the owners of detached, single-family, owner-occupied homes at the time Peachtree products are installed in such homes located within the USA. This Non-Stop Limited Warranty is not transferable to subsequent owners.

In order to establish that a claim is covered under the Non- Stop Limited Warranty, proof of purchase must be shown in a reasonable manner. One convenient way to establish on our files that you are the original owner of a Peachtree product is to complete the attached card and mail it to us within 90 days of installation. Failure to send this card will not adversely affect your warranty rights if you can otherwise provide the necessary proof. Moreover, your return of the card will provide us with marketing information that will allow us to better meet your needs in the future.

Peachtree is saying if you do not have a registration number you had only a 2 year warranty. You either had the longest warranty or the shortest warranty on your windows and doors. The 1995 " proof of purchase" doesn't apply to the 1990- 1994 non-stop lifetime warranty.

They only had on non-stop warranty and no other warranty was listed for the 1990-1994 products at that time.

Non-stop warranty never got going!

I built my house and specified Peachtree windows and doors because of the warranty. Over the years I ordered and received several sashes under this warranty but now in 2012 I have been informed by Peachtree that the sashes are no longer manufactured and that the balances I need were sold to another company. The company also said that balances were a wear item and not covered anyway and that I could purchase them if needed. I have asked Peachtree to refund the original purchase price as stated in the warranty as an option instead of providing replacement parts. As of 2/28/2012 I have not received anything that I need or an answer as to how they can null and void a lifetime warranty . I do not know if it will help but we all need to notify the federal trade commission or any govt. agency that can help all the homeowners with their defective and shoddy products.

Defective windows

We purchased and installed peachtree windows in 2004 and doors throughout our home. We know have windows that are water dmaged from bad design. The sill plate on casement windows has no pitch and water is getting into the seam and rotting out the frame underneath.

Customer service is of NO HELP and insists the windows are not defective. DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY!
