Defective Window Claim Lawyer
When you purchase an existing home, or contract for the construction of a home, windows are a key feature. Windows allow natural light to penetrate the home and allow the home’s occupants to view their surroundings.
Windows are a critical element of the building envelope and must keep out wind, water and wind-driven rain. From the beginning, the correct windows, with appropriate Design Pressure (“DP”) ratings, must be selected for the home’s location and the chosen windows must be properly manufactured. Once an appropriate window is selected, the window opening must be properly prepared and the windows must be correctly installed. Negligence or inattention at any step along the way can lead to window leaks and serious damage to your home.
Window defects include:
- Selecting windows with inappropriate Design Pressure (“DP”) ratings
- Defectively designed windows
- Defectively manufactured windows
- Defectively installed windows
- Negligent waterproofing and flashing details
Window defects can lead to water intrusion, wood decay and serious repair bills. The financial consequences of window defects can be substantial. If you have purchased a home, or purchased windows for a home, you have a right to windows free from serious defects.

Legal Expertise For Your Defective Windows Claim
For unsuspecting homeowners, identifying damage or defects associated with complex window systems proves difficult, as it requires professional experience to pinpoint the exact flaw. Yet, what homeowners do see is the damage to surrounding structures and framing. This is why it’s never a good idea to simply settle with an insurance company after filing a claim before having a thorough inspection and consultation with an attorney. More times than not, initial insurance payouts do not cover the high costs of damaged window systems. Additionally, in the event that homeowners discover leaks down the road, it is far too late to recoup any compensation.
Defective windows may be missing a window flashing, or they may be improperly flapped. There may be a tear in the waterproofing, building material or a defect in the exterior siding or stucco that results in leaking or another malfunction. Either way, the defective window attorneys at The Taylor Anderson Law Firm are positioned to provide legal guidance for homeowners, including help with processing a defective window claim.
