  1. I purchased two Viminco High Impact Patio doors and had them installed 14 months ago.Just recently not one but both door had the operating panel blow into my home in a 10 day period. There were high winds on both occasions and they were on the third floor. The Viwinco patio doors which were installed recently ( not high impact ) located on the second floor had no issues.After the second door blew in the rep who did return my call promptly and came out 8 days later to inspect the door.His ruling was the door was not adjusted properly.The thought never crossed his mind that a property management company put the panel in place in order to water tite my home followed by a contractor placing a sheet of plywood over the door for wind protection. I can tell you that before the incident the door was not installed like the version he saw. Being in the construction industry my entire life along with owning my own manufacturing business I was disappointed at their defensive altitude followed by an insulting letter by the regional salesman. As a consumer of their product I do not hear how far the rep had to traveled would of expected better communication.
