Showcase Window Question
Hi! I have ordered a whole house of replacement windows from Showcase. My house is a dark red brick traditional style house. Anyhow, I chose the white vinyl, but I have been reading that with red brick you don’t want the outside trim paint to be stark white, but rather creamy as paint outside looks much lighter and brighter and a stark white can look harsh.
All of that is to say that I’m concerned that I should have ordered a different color of window. Is there any way you can tell me if the white vinyl of the Showcase window is stark? Do you know of a paint color that is close in color to the color of the windows?

Cassandra, the Showcase rep should be able to answer this question better than I can. Most white vinyl windows are fairly stark white, but there are hundreds of whites out there so this is all a game of nuance. Get on the phone with Showcase and see if they can answer your question or can provide you with a sample.

Showcase Window vs Sunrise And Ecoview
I have a high end house on the market that had Precision Millworks windows that failed. They rotted after 8 yrs and I had active termites. I treated immediately, but now they have to be replaced. They were a PVC material on the outside and wood inside.
The manufacturer won't honor warranty because painter caulked over weep holes...which I cant even see on other windows. They are 3x8 single light windows., low E, tempered (argon insulated)glass.
I have received bids from Sunrise, Ecoview, and Showcase. I am not sure of the quality of them. This is s $1 million plus home. Any suggestions? Must have vinyl probably due to moisture in area less than a mile from Lake Ponchartrain in South Louisiana.

Claire, sorry to hear about your previous windows, that is a very short (and costly) shelf life for windows. So I have never heard of Showcase windows. I looked them up and saw they are part of Earthwise, which is a group of smaller manufacturers who have kind of banded together to share manufacturing facilities and marketing mechanisms to help them compete against the larger window companies. In general, they are thought to make a good, but not great, vinyl window.
Ecoview seems to be a local company that makes their own windows and their website provides no performance data on them so I can't say much about them. The site language that they install any replacement window from $199 to $289 leads me to believe they are probably installer entry level replacement windows (in the same vein as a Window World.)
That brings us to Sunrise, which is a very quality window company. I know the rep in New Orleans has a very good reputation as an installer and pays close attention to detail. This is what I would recommend without hesitation. The Sunrise Classic or just Sunrise window is very good and the premium Restorations window is excellent. They also offer interior wood laminates that are pretty impressive and worth a look at the very least. They offer the look of wood, but the durability, cost, and low maintenance of vinyl.
