WDMA Denounces Passage of Connecticut Warranty Bill

The Window & Door Manufacturers Association (WDMA) strongly denounces recently passed legislation in Connecticut affecting consumer warranties for windows. The onerous provisions of S.B. 821 require that window, roofing and siding manufacturers offering consumer warranties pay any warranty claim made for materials and labor and must reimburse the full price of the materials and labor the consumer was charged.  In addition, the manufacturer must make a determination on claims within 30 days of receiving the claim.  After that period, the claim is automatically considered approved, and the manufacturer must pay the claim within the following 30 days.
 
"WDMA is strongly opposed to this legislation and is extremely concerned about the circumstances surrounding its passage," said Michael O'Brien, WDMA President and CEO.  "The bill is problematically vague and unfair to manufacturers.  Its passage confirms Connecticut's reputation of being hostile to business and manufacturing in particular.  Furthermore, the bill and its ramifications were not given adequate scrutiny during the committee process and the fiscal impact is grossly understated."
