Vista Window Company Closes Their Doors

Unfortunately another smaller window manufacturer has closed their doors for good.  It looks like Vista Window Company is gone.  Their voicemail says they closed due to unforeseen circumstances and their google listing says they’re closed for good.  We always hate to see a company struggle.  Unfortunately, I think it’s going to continue to get more difficult for smaller window companies to compete.

What happens with the Vista Windows Warranty?

We’ve reached out to Vista Window Company and asked about the status of any pending orders and if there is any process for warranty claims as I’m sure our readers will be asking.

Right now, I would guess that there is no warranty and owners of these windows may be out of luck.  If we hear back with any info I’ll update this page right away.

What about pending orders for Vista Windows?

If you have an order pending for Vista windows I’d reach out to your contractor or dealer right away to make sure they can offer you something else.  Most reputable contractors will have credit terms established with manufacturers so they likely haven’t actually paid for your windows.  That means the contractor still has any deposit you’ve given them and you can (hopefully) order something else.  If they tell you the deposit is spent you might want to check with an attorney as you’ll probably have a hard time getting that money back.

If you hear any info that is different than what we’re written here please let us know asap.  You can post a comment or contact us privately.  I’m sure many folks will have questions about the status of Vista Window Company so any info you have to share will be helpful.

What if I was about to order Vista Windows?

Consider yourself lucky!  It’s time to order something else.  I’d look towards larger manufacturers.  You never know what the future may hold for any company, but there are plenty of large and we’ll established companies out there.  There’s no need to take a gamble on a smaller player.

    So, we just had some windows fail that are not even five years old. The windows were sold to us by Window Depot and installed by one of their subcontractors. Window Depot is offering to honor their end of the warranty which is installation, but not the window.
    Seems to me that Window Depot should take some responsibility for working with this company; which, from the little bit I’ve read, seems to have had quality issues from the beginning.
    Does anyone know if Vista window company has reincarnated into another window company?

      Hi Adam, sorry to hear about your trouble. Unfortunately people sell windows from these little manufacturers all the time. When they go out of business the company selling them just starts selling something else. The person left holding the bag is the person who bought those windows. It’s definitely unfortunate.

      I always recommend buying windows made by a large and well established company to avoid this fate. There’s not much I can do to help and I expect Window Depot won’t do much either, but it doesn’t hurt to ask them.

    This company went out knowing there product was bad. I have 8 window in my home which including two large picture window. Each year one of these window fails. The window have a grey film making it impossible to see out. I do wonder if we all had problem with these window has anyone contacted a lawyer. Can the owner of this company be held responsible even if they went out of business.

      Unfortunately I doubt it. The whole point of a company is to protect the owners from personal liability. It’s just an unfortunate situation when one of those small manufacturers goes out of business.
