Peachtree Windows Complaint - Cold drafty windows
GAINESVILLE, GEORGIA -- If you are considering purchasing windows, I can't say enough!! Stay away from Peachtree.
I live in Mass and can't believe windows could be so drafty. A repair representative from Peachtree was over twice and after the third call for the same issue they claim there was nothing else they could do. They actually sent me new weather stripping to install myself without any directions on how to take out the old and install the new. Why would they send me totally different weather stripping if they thought there was really no issue. Adjustments were made but still on a new house(now 5 years old) you should not have to put plastic up year after year on the inside of the window. The reasons were a joke why they are so drafty. That all windows are only rated for a spacific wind speed and that's why they are drafty. I live in a windy area. If that the case, in this day and age with all the technology, Peachtree should not be building windows or selling them in the North. The windows that are absolute junk are the series 300. Now I also have (3) series 500 windows that were installed, yes by the same builder at the same time. They seem to be fine. Why would the builder be able to install those windows fine with no issues and all the double windows with serious issues. When I made the first call, you could actually see daylight on a few of the double windows between the window itself and the sash. The daylight was gone, but they were still and are very drafty! In regards to the series 500 windows, you can clearly see that there was better craftsmanship. Other new houses in the same development do not have any of the issues except my next door neighbor. Ironically, he has the only other house with the same windows in my neighborhood. When a shade moves on the inside of a house there is a problem!! The windows were installed by 2 different builders, so it was not the installation. Please do yourself a favor: DO NOT CONSIDER Peachtree windows!!!
