What is the difference between the Claims Period and the Extended Claims Period?
The Claims Period was for any Eligible Damage to a Pella ProLine casement, awning, or transom window manufactured between January 1, 1991 and December 31, 2009 (“Pella ProLine Casement Window”) that manifested before or during the Claims Period. This would be Eligible Damage manifesting up until June 20, 2018.
