Alpine Windows In Hawaii
We purchased Alpine windows and sliding doors in 2003-2004 for new construction. Several windows and a sliding door have fogged up. Where do I go for the lifetime warranty/replacement? The website for Alpine doesn’t seem to exist and the window and glass shop that our contractor used is no longer in business.

Dane how would you rate the above against window companies such as Anderson. Buying a house in the Phoenix.
[Site Editor's Answer]
Alpine, from what I understand, is owned by Associated Materials, Inc. which isn't known for making a top quality window. However, I took a look at the brochure for the Montrose window series from Alpine (a step down from their premium) and I thought the window used some nice features and came in with some decent performance numbers -- double hung with a .29 U-factor, .30 SHGC, and a .08 (Montrose ST) or a .04 (Montrose Base) on air infiltration, along with a DP 40 or 50 (again depending on the ST or Base option, which truthfully I'm not even what the Base refers to -- I believe the ST is the upgraded SolarTherm glass option).
Dane thanks for your answers. The only problem I have is here in Phoenix unless you are building a custom home you get what ever the builder in the subdivision decides to put in all the homes. The home we are looking at are the Alpine. Which type I have know idea. But can get a sticker off of one of the windows if that would help identify the type.

Yep, same problem here in California. The bigger problem is for communities where the window maker went out of business during the recession and now there is no way to match the hardware and lift rails at all.
Alpine Windows Warranty
The warranty information states that Alpine windows come with lifetime warranty. However, what they don't state is that the lifetime warranty only applies to the original owner at the time of the installation. Alpine windows were installed in my home, which was built in 2006. 9 of the 15 windows have failed. When I tried to get the lifetime warranty coverage, because I was the 2nd home owner, they declined coverage.
Alpine Window Reviews
Alside, Revere, Alpine, AMI, they are all the same thing, they just keep renaming new lines to try and avoid their reputation. They make a low quality window and they don't do too well, but they are successful at what they do, which is selling cheap windows, and from what I've heard they are decent about honoring warranties.
An Associated Window Company
Alpine is owned by Associated Windows, and so is Alside windows, but there is a difference as far as design and specs. I don't know much about their Alpine line, but Alside is ok for a low to mid grade product. They aren't pretending to be a top of the line premium window. I've heard some complaints about service and how they handle warranties, but I don't know if it's true. From my experience Alside has always been decent.

We really take customer service seriously, and we're careful about what products we sell. I would never sell anyone an Alside window, or any of their other names. They're so bad they are constantly creating new names so people won't realize who they are. Alpine, Berkshire, Apex, Signature, Revere, they are all the same.
Replacements In Riverside
I'm considering replacement windows for my home in Riverside County CA. I have to stick to a budget but I need something that will hold up and be pleasant to live with, I've heard plenty of stories about bad windows since I started looking. I heard Atrium Windows was good, then I saw some bad reviews. Same with Madison and Alpine. I can't spend a bundle but I want a decent quality. Can someone direct me to some site that rates or compares windows?
Atrium is a good product, not a premium window but better than average. They are better than the others you mentioned, certainly. I'd also look at Superior or GreenWorld, good price with a great warranty. I don't know of somewhere you can compare a bunch of ratings.

Alpine Window Review
In 1995 I put Alpines in my house. Now they are falling apart and I need parts and service and I'm regretting buying the Alpines. You have to go through Alside and they discontinued the Lifetime Guarantee, plus they changed the design and they say they can't give me any parts. I'm stuck buying all new windows and doors. Don't buy anything from Alside or Alpine.
