LENEXA, Kan. -- An investigation has been launched into a metro siding company based on customer complaints. 

The 41 Action News Investigators first told you about a homeowner frustrated with Amazing Siding and Windows a few weeks ago.

After that story, the 41 Action News Investigators received several more complaints and tips about the business.

On Monday, a man named Paul Birner won a default judgment in St. Louis against company owner Corey Wilcox for more than $400,000.

A former employee told the 41 Action News Investigators Wilcox bought the company with offices in both the St. Louis and Kansas City areas from Birner.

Birner's St. Louis based attorney Mike Stephens declined to comment because he said the case is still pending.

The 41 Action News Investigators were unable to reach Birner.

A spokeswoman for the Johnson County District Attorney's Office also confirmed that agency is investigating Wilcox and Amazing Siding based on customer complaints.

She also said the business had shut down.

But the 41 Action News Investigators found Wilcox's wife and business partner at an office in Lenexa where a former employee told us Amazing Siding has moved to after closing its office on 135th Street in Olathe.

The 41 Action News Investigators asked Katie Wilcox about the business.

"I'm not discussing any information, please excuse yourself. OK," she said.

When the 41 Action News Investigators asked if she was still doing business, she replied, "Sir, I'm not answering any further questions."

Teresa Kelly said she's in an ongoing dispute over her warranty with Amazing Siding.

She said she had to have a window replaced, but the company didn't get it from the manufacturer so she got it herself.

She's still waiting for Amazing Siding to get it installed.

"I'm worried. I paid for a lifetime warranty. I don't know what happens when you can't even get the owner to care enough to call you back," Kelly said.

Another woman named Jenni Fox said she paid the company $8,750 for new windows, but they never came.

She said Wilcox promised to pay her back but has only paid back half the money so far.

Fox's complaint is one of the issues the Johnson County District Attorney's Office is investigating.

The 41 Action News Investigators reached Wilcox by text message.

He said his attorney would be in contact with us, but as of publication, we have yet to hear from them.
