The agreement covers a nationwide class of consumers who purchased Pella's ProLine series windows between 1991 and 2006. It is believed that Pella shipped an estimated 6 million ProLine windows during that span.
Class members are eligible to receive between $750 in cash per structure (through a claims process) and $6,000 per structure (through an expedited arbitration process, where Pella can make defenses). Other class members will be entitled to receive certain discounts or coupons. The settlement also provides remedy for owners who will require future repairs or replacements of their windows.

All information, instructions, and appropriate forms for eligible class members who wish to file a claim may be found at www.windowsettlement.com.
The current settlement covers only Pella's ProLine Casement windows. However, our investigation and lawsuits continue against Pella's " Designer" and " Architect" series windows.The Designer and Architect series windows contain an alleged design flaw similar to the ProLine series in that the aluminum cladding allows water to seep under it, and rot out the wood underneath. Sometimes the excessive moisture is so bad that water leaks into the home and causes property damage. To further our investigation, we ask that anyone who purchased the Pella Designer or Pella Architect Series windows that are experiencing rotting or water damage to contact us using the information below. All initial attorney consultations are free of charge. http://www.windowsettlement.com/Documents/Settlement%20Agreement.pdf CONTACT: Pella ProLine Class Counsel: Richard Burke and Paul Weiss of Complex Litigation Group LLC ( http://www.ComplexLitGroup.com), 513 Central Avenue, Suite 300, Highland Park, IL 60035, Office: 847-433-4500, Email: Info@ComplexLitGroup.com and Jonathan Shub of Seeger Weiss LLP ( http://www.seegerweiss.com), 77 Water Street, New York, NY 10005, Office: 888-584-0411.
