Do Not Use Semco Windows!!


In 1992 my husband and I built our first house. We used Semco windows, in six months all of the windows were already cracked and the wood had turned black. in less than a year the windows were leaking and we developed black mold. we lost everything my daughter was having major allergic reactions and we found out she was allergic to the mold. The house was an amazing home but the windows were the problem and they are the reason why we had to start all over again with four children. its not easy. Please no matter what you do, do not use Semco windows I do not want anyone else to go through what my family and I had to go through.

Thanks for posting your experience Vanessa... I have to address a couple things though: 1) I don't know of any decent quality wood windows around in 1992. 2)The black mold in your home is not cause by your windows, they were simply a convenient source for it to grow.

I'm not crazy about that window, but I'd also encourage caution when making such claims.

Kind of poor form to start bashing a company with your first post. Especially when this occurred almost twenty years ago.

Just how could you have "lost everything" because of poor windows? Could it have been the install? And was there some reason you didn't change out the windows until your whole families health was in jeopardy? If it was me, I think I would have chopped out the old windows and replaced them with something that works before I reached a point of financial ruin and calamitous health problems.

At the risk of sounding like a heartless ghoul, what really happened?

I thought I read the post wrong. It wasn't 20 years ago, it was just 1992.......
