If you’re looking for info on Alliance Vinyl windows I have some bad news. It looks like they’ve headed off into the distance and they are permanently closed.
It is important to note that this is Alliance Vinyl Windows Co, not Alliance Window Systems. Alliance Window Systems a network of small window manufacturers. Similar name, different operation.
The picture above shows the current google listing for Alliance Vinyl Windows. A call to their phone number this morning went to a recording saying the number was out of service.
Unfortunately this can be a risk when dealing with the small window manufacturers out there. I know the in-home salespeople can tell a convincing story but there’s a real risk in working with these little manufacturers and I think that risk is often under appreciated.
I think the salespeople can get away with selling some of these products because most customers aren’t familiar with window manufacturers. You probably don’t know who is a worthwhile manufacturer and who is a little too risky. That’s a lack of information that the salespeople will exploit.
We can help.
Does it matter if you bought windows from a company that is now bankrupt?
Hopefully it doesn’t. Hopefully your windows work just fine and you won’t have any problems down the road. Unfortunately you now have no warranty at all. Worse than that there’s no access to spare parts. That can be the most challenging part.
What about my warranty from Alliance Vinyl Windows?
Unfortunately it’s gone. If you find yourself in this boat I wouldn’t get too worried about it. There’s nothing you can do anyway so worrying won’t help.
Some repairs can still be made. For example if you have a window break or if you get a seal failure in an Alliance Vinyl Window Co window a third party company can likely fix it.
You’d be paying out of pocket for that repair but it can be done easily enough.
If you have a problem that requires new parts like a new lock, a new screen frame or a new vinyl frame or sash the repair will be more difficult, or impossible.
In that situation you’ll likely be buying a new window from a different manufacturer. That’ll be the only solution.
