Allied Windows started as a small-scale factory at the Fraser Highway in 1970. After 40 years, it continues to provide window and door products for Vancouver, Vancouver Island, Okanagan, and the Fraser Valley. The Allied window company has definitely come a long way with its 65,000 square foot manufacturing plant at the Gloucester Industrial Park in Langley, BC, its new business location since 2008. Their employee number has grown significantly over the years along with their product line. Their success was further expanded in 2007 with their partnership with The ATIS Group of Companies, which is one of the biggest window production companies in Canada.
The company offers standout and detailed windows in aluminum and/or vinyl for residential and commercial units in Alberta, British Columbia, Manitoba, and Saskatchewan. Every product is adaptable for new construction or renovation projects. Moreover, their windows are certified under the BC Energy Efficiency Act and adhere to ENERGY STAR conditions. Windows are classified according to material: vinyl, aluminum, and hybrid.
The vinyl line of windows is standard for any family-owned unit. They are optimized to withstand impact, have multiple chambers, and are fusion-welded. A free choice of colors can be either white or almond; however, other colors are available for an additional charge.

The hybrid line features the Allied Renaissance Series Hybrid Casement Window. This is their standard casement window fitted into an exterior aluminum frame.

For a fee, this window can be customized with powder-coated woodgrains and finishes.Warranty grants for their window products must adhere to specific terms. For one, a homeowner is periodically responsible for the upkeep of the windows. Seal joints should be assessed once in a while and replaced when necessary. Moving parts or hardware should be consistently lubricated. Lastly, weatherstripping should be thoroughly cleaned.The Allied window company has been certified with an A+ rating by the Better Business Bureau (BBB).
