Mitten Review: "Warrantee Claim Process Was Dreadful with No Resolution"

Name: Elizabeth Judd
Location: Seaforth, Ontario

Vinyl Siding Satisfaction Rating:
1 of 5 stars Very Unsatisfied

My siding has changed color on one side of my home - the siding is only 5 years old. Mitten won't send a technician to remove the defective siding. They expect me, the untrained home owner to remove the siding myself and mail the pieces to them. They sent a zip tool to me by courier to remove the siding but didn't include instructions with the tool on how to use it. I'm not proceeding with the claim as if I damage the siding when removing it to mail it in, I'm S.O.L. The claims rep had the nerve to say - "its a simple process. Sure it is - if you're a trained installer!!! Which I'm not! I asked how I'm to mail in the defective lengths of siding - I don't have boxes for 6' lengths of siding - I wasn't given an answer. I will NEVER recommend this company's product to friends or family. Nor will I use their product when I re-clad my home in the next year or so. Obviously the Mitten product doesn't stand the test of time. I will reside with another company - after looking very carefully into their warrantee practices. Extremely frustrating experience with no resolution that protects/helps the homeowner.

Mitten Review: "Never call or use!"

Name: Karen

Vinyl Siding Satisfaction Rating:
1 of 5 stars Very Unsatisfied

I was referred to Mitten by Gienow Windows after needing help with a siding issue and repairs. I didn't even make it past the receptionist. She was incredibly rude! I couldn't even explain my situation to her without her interrupting and saying, 'you said that already. What do you want?' This was after I had called 3 times for service with no return call. I can't imagine what service you'd get if you can't even speak decently with the front reception.

Mitten Review: "Extremely Unhappy"

Name: E Dermid

Model: Mitten Siding

We built a new home. Installed Mitten Siding. It looked horrible. A rep finally came out and looked at it and admitted the siding was defective. They sent all new siding and gave us a cash settlement to have new installed. The new siding was just as bad as the old. At every joint it looks terrible. Am in the process now of trying to just get our money back.

Mitten Review: "Horrible Quality & Customer Service!"

Name: A. Bakker
Location: Ontario

Vinyl Siding Satisfaction Rating:
1 of 5 stars Very Unsatisfied

We purchased Mitten Sentry Board & Batten Muskoka Green siding last year and this year for our house as well as all of the pvc trim. This company has been a nightmare to deal with from day one. If the product is in stock you may receive your order on up to 3 different truck deliveries in one day. Then when the product shipped is cupped and clearly not flat like it was supposed to be the company says "There is nothing wrong with it" After arguing for a week about it they sent a person to see it on the house & in the remaining boxes. He showed up unannounced and woke up my husband who had worked the night before. They said it would be replaced - which it was with exactly the same shabby cupped siding as before. They were to deliver after 3pm & pick up the original faulty siding but when we arrived home at noon it was in the driveway. Even a large amount of the pvc trim arrived damaged. They seriously need to reconsider their warehouse & delivery staff. We would never ever recommend this company or their products to anyone. We have just built a brand new house & this company was by far the worst one we have dealt with. We now have a new house with some flat siding & some cupped siding - it looks awful.

Mitten Review: "Horrible stuff"

Name: Iris Romanuik
Location: Yorkton, Sask.

Vinyl Siding Satisfaction Rating:

Installed this siding in 2012 faded in the first year was replaced 2nd year and faded before the fall of the third year. Sent in samples and were told it was normal fading. Our siding is blotchy and chalky if it is was normal fading it would all fade evenly not like this. Stay away from this product there 25 year warranty is not worth the paper its written on.

Mitten Review: "Buckling and Fading"

Name: L Kwasney
Location: Kimberley. B.C.
Model: Stratus Vinyl Siding

Vinyl Siding Satisfaction Rating:
1 of 5 stars Very Unsatisfied

The first year while our siding was being installed we noticed "buckling". The rep was great, the siding was replaced. The second year we noticed significant fading. We have contacted the store where we bought it, two or three different reps have been asked to come look at our house and I have written to mitten siding expressing my concerns... Stonewalling is the only word that comes to mind when I think about how we are being treated. My next step may be a big sign outside my house stating "before you by Mitten Siding come take a look at my house, especially the south facing wall."

Terrible company. Bought what I thought to be brand new boards but has dings all the way through. It looks like someone threw rocks at my house. Very disappointed as I paid full price.

Mitten Review: "Best Out There"

Name: Rob
Location: Saskatoon
Model: Insulplank

Vinyl Siding Satisfaction Rating:
5 of 5 stars Very Satisfied

House originally had x90 on it, from the late 70's and upgraded to Mitten's Insulplank. A little pricier but all the neighbours think the siding looks like Hardie Plank. Keeps the house warmer and the color is fantastic. Looked at some houses with the other manufacturers siding and did not like how the colors wore over time.

Mitten Review: "Buckles in frost"

Name: David R Spears
Location: Canada
Model: Mini Home Skirting

The mini home skirting manufactured by Mitten is unsatisfactory. The product buckles in certain frost situations. The header and footer need to be deep enough to cope with the frost. I would not recommend this product.

Mitten Review: "Mitten Vinyl Siding Defective & Inferior Product - 50 yr. Warranty (Don't believe it)"

Name: Chris Mastalerz
Location: Springfield, MA

Vinyl Siding Satisfaction Rating:
1 of 5 stars Very Unsatisfied

The Mitten Vinyl installed on my house (Mass.) approximately 2 years ago started bubbling/warping on the North/West sides of the house 9 mos. After installation. Additionally, the remainder of the house has faded dramatically. My attempts to date to have the company rectify this situation since it is obvious that their product/material is defective or flawed amount to clear "stonewalling" as a resolution. They insist that the fading is normal and the distortion(bubbling/warping) is caused by some "unknown concentrated external source, most likely window reflection". They continue stating " This phenomena is rare and only occurs in a unique set of conditions". They conclude "It is not the result of a defective vinyl siding product, and therefore is excluded from our warranty program". A real scientific analysis/conclusion - So much for their 50 year Warranty Program - Valid Claims 1-2 Yrs. Old Are Not Honored. Incidentally, both My Contractor & Manufacturers Rep. Agree that the vinyl siding is defective. Avoid "Mitten" products; save yourself the grief. Currently, I am in the process of filing a formal complaint with the Massachusetts Attorney General's Office. I strongly encourage other dissatisfied/economically harmed customers to initiate the same action.
