Sunrise Essentials Windows Prices

The Sunrise Essentials window is their entry level option, although it's still probably a better option than many company's mid range vinyl window. Instead of the extrusions and sash design used in other Sunrise lines, it uses less durable versions of each to reduce production costs.

The colors are limited and it only comes in a double hung, slider, and picture window. Most homeowners would do well to stretch to the Standard Sunrise model, if possible, although with a .07 air infiltration, that is not a bad window at all. Compare the Sunrise Essentials Series to the Amerimax Masters Grande - see all Amerimax windows pricing.

Sunrise Essential Price Bid

Hey Tim! I really liked the Sunrise dealer here in Atlanta. I was able to get the 7 double hung “Essential” windows for $4200 - which was exactly my budget. After looking at some reviews, I asked them about the middle of the line version and they said the cost difference between that and the high end - “Restorations" wasn’t a whole lot and that they don’t try to sell them much because of that. The cost for 7 “Restorations” was almost $2K more than the Essentials.

I’m on a budget and would rather not spend $2K more. Should I stick with the “Essentials” and be happy with new windows — or do you think I’ll regret that and I should maybe start looking at something else. I plan to be in the home for a long time and don’t want to be disappointed.

One other note, I was also trying to get a quote for the Okna windows. The company here has a 10 window minimum. I talked them into allowing me to get 7 since that is my entire home. BUT, they don’t have a lead paint license and because my home was built in 1942, they are required to test for that. So Okna, is out of the picture (only one in Georgia).

Thanks for you input!

Jason - Homeowner - from 2021

[Site Editor's Answer]

Jason, there is definitely a difference in the Essentials and the Sunrise standard or classic. The Essentials is like a good mid range window. If you are good with that level of quality, then I say go for it. I like that you like the dealer, that improves the situation. Assuming professional and thorough installation, the Essentials should serve you well.

That's a shame about the Okna -- 10 window minimum, I've never heard that one!

If you do want to keep looking, I'm happy to send you my good and great list of windows.

Sunrise Essential Price Bid

I've found y'alls website very helpful. Thank you! We have a house in a suburb of Atlanta GA, house was built in 1982, still has the original single pane windows. We plan on being here a long time.

I got several bids to budget then again for final once I saved up, everyone from Window World, Apex Energy Solutions, some local manufacturers and the few below I narrowed down to.

26 DH + (2) picture windows, everyone bid the same quantities.

Zen Nirvana at $15,070
** The local Zen dealer sold back to the original franchisor out of Columbus Ohio, they use a local installer, no reviews except for 1 since 2016, kind of wary of that **

Okna 500 at $15,474
($557 smaller DH/ $588 larger DH)

Okna 600 at $16,009
($579 smaller DH / $610 larger DH)
** These are from a local company, 5.0 on google and other sites. I would see if I negotiate down a little.

Large picture is $744
Small picture is $552, this specific price seems sky high. 16"x32"

Also just for comparison locally for other readers:
Window World - ~$12,xxx
Sunrise Essential - $16,900
Sunrise Verde at $22,250
Apex Insignia at $19,700(with there "marketing" discount)
Power Home Remodeling (Pella)- $27,xxx

Ty - Homeowner - from 2020

[Site Editor's Answer]

Ty, the Okna bids are really good bids. I would go with the Okna 600 at $16,009. Excellent window and compared to the bids you listed at the bottom, those prices are great. Considering the reviews are great, this decision would be a no brainer for me. Good for you because prices have been through the roof during COVID.

Sunrise Essentials Pricing

We have 20 windows that need to be replaced as soon as possible. We collected four bids, but I'm having a hard time understanding which are the ones to consider.
Soft-lite Classic: $13.5K

Simonton Reflections 5500: $11K
Sunrise Essentials: $14.2K
Great Lakes ComfortSmart: $10K

Don - Homeowner - from 2018

[Site Editor's Answer]

Don, the Sunrise Essentials is overpriced in that grouping. All of the others look to be appropriate for the quality of the window. I would go with the Reflections or Classic series if these were my bids.

Dane - Site Editor - from 2018

Sunrise Standard Windows Prices

The Standard or Classic Sunrise window is certainly an upgrade from the Sunrise Essentials model. It uses a nicer vinyl extrusion that is actually the same basic frame for all of the upgraded window series from Sunrise, including the Verde, Vanguard and Restorations. The only difference between the classic Sunrise and the upgraded models is the standard upgrades that come with the higher end series.

The standard Sunrise should be available for ala carte upgrades though, which provides consumers with some nice flexibility in terms of tailoring the window to their specific situation or needs. Overall, the standard Sunrise window is a high end mid range vinyl window that many industry experts would recommend for good long term value. Compare the Sunrise Classic to the Ply Gem Premium window.

Sunrise Ultra U Plus Cost

We are replacing 12 windows in the NW burbs of Chicago . 8 are casements others are picture. Sunrise ultra u is quoted at $17.8K and Comfort Smart at $15.7K. Is Sunrise worth the extra cost?

Best Regards.

Robert - Homeowner - from 2021

[Site Editor's Answer]

Robert, I would say that the Sunrise with the Ultra U glass is probably worth the cost difference in this case. Not cheap bids for 12 windows huh? There is an Okna dealer who you may want to grab a bid from. He is also not cheap, but is quite good. I would be curious how the Okna 500 would compare to the Sunrise bid.

If this is your forever home, I think the Sunrise makes sense fore sure. If not, then I’m not completely sold.

Hello and Happy New Year!

I have found your site to be VERY informative in helping to decide on which replacement windows to install into our home that was built in 1995.

I have decided on a contractor and brand and would like to know your opinion on our most recent quote.

We have a total of 18 windows, 16 that will be double hung and 2 picture windows. The size of picture windows are 38x75 and 50x75. We received a quote to replace all 18 with Sunrise Standard for $13,598. This quote also includes an upgrade to woodgrain on the interior of all windows.

Thank you for your time and I'll look forward to hearing your thoughts.

- Homeowner - from 2020

[Site Editor's Answer]

Hi, so that bid seems pretty reasonable to me on the surface of it. I can't say for sure without having additional bids to compare it with. But Sunrise windows with the upgraded wood laminate should run in that $700 to $750 range.

Tim - Site Editor - from 2020

Sunrise Standard Prices

I live in Lake Charles, Louisiana and need 22 new windows. I have a bunch of bids and include a bronze exterior color and double impact glass. Several of the windows include laminated glass.

Sunrise Standard Windows Quote

Tim, I was reading you reviews and I received the following quote for Sunrise Standard windows. The price is for the windows and sliders installed and remove the old windows. After reading the reviews does the price seem high or is it just me? Please feel free to contact me. Thanks in advance.

$1000 per window
$3100 per patio door

Scott - Homeowner - from 2020

[Site Editor's Answer]

Hi, so yes, $1000 a window is quite expensive. Definitely suggest grabbing additional bids to compare them to...

Sunrise Classic Bow Window Cost

Tim, got a quote to replace a 112 inch by 54 inch bow window with a 3-lite slider. Quoted out at $1750 total. The dealer has a good rep in the area. He also quoted me on the Restorations for $2950. The other quote was for a Simonton Reflections for $1700.

Deb - Homeowner - from 2020

[Site Editor's Answer]

Deb, the Sunrise Classic for the $1750 is the best deal you have there in my opinion.

Tim - Site Editor - from 2020

Sunrise Standard vs. Zen Nirvana

I have a price quote for 17 double hung windows and would love your advice.

Zen Nirvana: $11,320

Zen Lotus: $13,000

Sunrise Standard: $17,000

Sandy - Homeowner - from 2019

[Site Editor's Answer]

Sandy, I definitely think the Zen is the way to go. Probably worth the upgrade to go with the Lotus. The Sunrise window is great, but not worth the premium of the bid you have.

Tim - Site Editor - from 2019

Sunrise Standard Price Quote

I have two quotes local window installers, both of whom have good reviews and have been around for two plus decades. I'm replacing 1 awning and 18 casement windows.

Sunrise Standard Series: $12.9K

Preservation Window: $16.8K


Rod - Homeowner - from 2019

[Site Editor's Answer]

Rod, the Sunrise Standard is the best of those options. The Preservation is a nice window, but the Sunrise is a much better value in your two bids.

Dane - Site Editor - from 2019

Sunrise Standard Replacement Costs

I'm trying to compare two replacement window quotes for one double casement and 5 double hung windows. Thanks in advance for your help.

Polaris UltraWeld Window: $3065

Sunrise Standard Window: $3046

Polly - Homeowner - from 2018

[Site Editor's Answer]

Polly, the Sunrise Standard is a good window, but the Polaris UltraWeld Window is excellent. That's what I'd go with.

Tim - Site Editor - from 2018

I have a large remodel that means I'm replacing all of my 63 windows. It includes some replacement wood frames from water damage.

Sunrise Standard Series: $46.9K

Okna 500 Insultec Series: $59.2K

Zen Lotus Series: $61.5K

Dave - Homeowner - from 2018

[Site Editor's Answer]

Dave, you have three excellent windows to choose from. I'd go with the Sunrise Standard and save the $13K.

Dane - Site Editor - from 2018

Sunrise Standard Prices vs. Polaris UltraWeld

I have two quotes I'm trying to compare. The bids are for a double casement and five double hungs. Price wise, they're the same.

Sunrise Standard: $3046

Polaris UltraWeld: $3065

Audrey - Homeowner - from 2018

[Site Editor's Answer]

Audrey, the Polaris UltraWeld is the better window of the two.

Tim - Site Editor - from 2018

Sunrise Standard Windows

Tim, we have 4 windows in total all of which need to be replaced, two are 48 inches by 60 inches and the other two are 49 inches by 48 inches. We got a bid on Sunrise horizontal sliders for $3290. Does this sound right? We have quite a bit of sill rot so they all have to be replaced.

John - Homeowner - from 2018

[Site Editor's Answer]

John, that sounds like it could be right. The sill rot can be an expensive process so that would account for the relatively high per window cost. I'd still get a couple more bids though to see whether you can get a better handle on whether that's a fair price or not.

Tim - Site Editor - from 2018

Sunrise Classic / Standard Window Costs

I have a project with 16 windows and was curious to get your take on the better deal.

Simonton Reflections 5500: $470 per window

Sunrise Classic Series: $550 per window

Ryan - Homeowner - from 2018

[Site Editor's Answer]

Ryan, the split between these two windows is about what I'd expect. Can't go wrong with either one really. I would say it comes down to which one looks better to you and which price you feel more comfortable paying.

Tim - Site Editor - from 2018

Tim - Site Editor - from 2018

Sunrise Vinyl Replacement Windows Cost

Hello, I recently had Sunrise vinyl replacement windows installed & need to get an estimated cost per window. I had 3 slider windows 72 x 44 and 2 double hung windows 26 x 44. I would just like to know a break down of what one of the slider windows and one of the double hung windows cost approximately for tax purposes.

Kay - Homeowner - from 2018

[Site Editor's Answer]

Kay, if you had the windows installed, don't you know what you paid. On average, a Sunrise double hung should run $550 to $650 installed. However, it's like asking what a Toyota Highlander costs -- it can run $32K to $45K based on all the features and packages. The same goes for window because there are so many variables with installation requirements.

Dane - Site Editor - from 2018

Sunrise vs. Preservations

Hello Dane, we have 2 twin casements and we live in Virginia. Both are 58" x 58." Both will use tempered glass. Here are the quotes we have so far.

Vista Panorama: $1765. The installer has super reviews.

ProVia Aeris: $3575. Their installers seemed good, but I haven't looked at their reviews yet.

Sunrise Windows: $3631. The installer also has super reviews.

Preservation Triple Panes: $4140. Salesman was a bit pushy.

Andrei - Homeowner - from 2018

Sunrise Standard Windows Cost

16 Sunrise windows, 14 are double-hungs with two half-round architectural windows. Initial bid price was $19,000. I think this is high and I'd like to see how much lower he will go.

Sunrise Costs vs Simonton 6500

I have a quote on 3 double-hungs, 1 glass patio door and 5 sliders. The quote on the Simonton 6500 was $10,700 and the Sunrise quote was $9000 and the quote. Both windows seem like they are good and durable.

Sunrise Widnow Costs vs Andersen 400

Our Sunrise dealer came out and measured/quoted the entire house for me (see attached). We priced all windows with white prairie style grids (upper sash only $33/window), white exterior, white interior, and white hardware. Installation for windows was $460/window with the vendor doing all interior & exterior work. There was a $116 discount from the per-window-install-price for me doing the interior casing and extension jam work which still amounts to me paying a $344/window install charge. It seemed odd to me, but for home owner install sales they offer a 20% discount on the price of the window.

In the end, they quoted a straight sale to me for the Sunrise double hung with the prairie grid in the upper sash is $505.74 including the sales tax. $11 more with optional nailing fin. I think that's an awesome price too which makes the decision that much harder!

The Andersen 400 was has no grid and is $560 plus tax with the nailing fin.

Donald - Homeowner - from 2016

Sunrise Window Costs

I ordered 2 Sunrise double hung windows with white exterior, a nailing fin, and colonial cherry interior with two tone matching prairie style grids on the upper sash. Cost after tax was $1250.77 for 2 windows. That is $120 per window more than if I had ordered with the same options and white all around - which really only represents $1680 to upgrade all 14 windows in the home.

In the end we think it's a small price for having them look the way we want, and from more than 5 feet away you can't tell they're not real wood. This Sunrise price is only $25 more per window than the Andersen 400. Really it was an easy decision once I got over my distain for foe wood. Especially considering that the awesome price we got on the Andersen 400 was for a stocked window that matched our exact size. Therefore that awesome price didn't include the grids we wanted, a maintenance free finish, nor an awesome non-prorated lifetime warranty that covers every facet of the window. But hey, I don't have to sell it you - you had the same idea!

Thanks for all your insight and advice. We really appreciate it.

Tom - Homeowner - from 2016

Sunrise Windows Quote

I am going to replace 28 in total – 8 will be picture windows, rest will be either single or double hung). 15 of these windows, get full west sun. 6 of these will be upper level picture windows.

Restorations windows, 20 double hung, (8 picture windows) with the 12 layer coating quote was 27K.

Sunrise, Sunrise windows with the 12 layer coating package, 20 single hung windows (8 picture), was over 17K (636 per window). They said the only difference between the restoration package and the sunrise package is the outer frame is not insulated like the restoration style. Also a difference in the locking mechanisms.

Also planning on replacing a patio French door. Changing out a 2 6'8" doors with transom, to 2 – 8' doors. Window world gave a price of $3250 for a therma true door, and the sunrise installer gave a price of $4932 for their steel door. Their brand is Provia.

Angie - Homeowner - from 2016

Standard Sunrise Windows Cost

The Standard Sunrise window is definitely an upgrade from the Essentials model. It uses a nicer vinyl extrusion that is the frame that Sunrise uses for all of it's high end model, just without the upgrades and add ons. For instance, the standard or classic Sunrise window doesn't use come with a fiberglass sash reinforcement or separate tilt lock buttons that come standard on the Verde or Restoration model.

Overall, this window is a very nice mid range vinyl window and one that many contractors would recommend. Compare the Sunrise to Milgard Tuscany Cost.

Standard Sunrise Series Cost

My contractor got great pricing though his distributor for a 400 double hung. The big choice is now between an Andersen 400 for $550 and the Sunrise for $560. The only reason I'm even considering the choice is because our home has stained oak trim and the window would look beautiful stained to match. The white vinyl isn't as attractive looking in a stained frame.

Is the Sunrise still the best option for function and longevity?

Tom - Homeowner - from 2016

[Site Editor's Answer]

Tom, that is a fantastic price for the Andersen 400 window. While the Sunrise would probably last longer, the Andersen 400 window is a well made window and the interior wood is very nice looking. If you are willing to stain and take care of the interior wood, I'd have to say go with the Andersen -- especially if everytime you look at the windows they are a thing of beauty. Vinyl is simply not a thing of beauty...

Dane - Site Editor - from 2016

Sunrise Window Cost Quote

I ended-up selecting 8 Sunrise standard (block and tackle) double-hung: Ultra glass (.25 rating), SDL grids, 1/2 OptiView Screens, upper and lower sash obscure glass (no grids, bathroom only); and they are removing and hauling away 8 canvas awnings. Approx. $7000 (my windows are a bit on the large side).

Thank you for your input and opinions that confirmed the direction I was leaning. It helped me feel comfortable that I did what was possible to make the best selection for our project.

Now, I just hope the company's installation is, truly, as good as my research suggests. ;-)

Joanne - Homeowner - from 2016

Sunrise Window Prices vs Simonton

I got a quote for 9 windows on Simonton Prism Platinum windows. $3400. Only other placed are WindowWorld, Ideal Windows and the big box stores. Talked to the Sunrise salesman and could get the "Sunrise" Single Hung window for $6086. Would not budge with price. Suggestions?

David - Homeowner - from 2016

[Site Editor's Response]

David, the Sunrise single hung is quite a good window, but I'm not totally convinced it's worth nearly double the Simonton Prism Platinum window quote. The Prism Platinum is a very solid mid range vinyl window and assuming you like how it looks and feel comfortable with the installer, I would go with this one.

This is one of those "it's your call," but I feel like the top end windows from Simonton are good.

Dane - Site Editor - from 2016

Homeowner's Response

Dane, Thanks for your response. We are going with the Sunrise window. We got the price down to $5841. I liked the installation better. They are doing the nail fin replacement and will replace any rotten wood. The Simonton place was not real clear but I believe he was just going to cut the window out and put the new one in. If that makes sense.

Thanks for all your help.

Sunrise Windows Cost

I got pricing from the highly rated Sunrise dealer and it came in at $16,934 ($736/opening) versus the $15,933 for the Soft Lite Elements. We liked the dealer and really like the thinner profile of the Sunrise and the ability to get Earthtone vinyl exterior without having to go the route of paint (and extra expense) with the Soft-Lite. However, there are a few things that concern me about the Sunrise:

1) I have read about different models (Verde, Vanguard, etc), but this dealer when asked told me it is the "Sunrise model" and that there is no sub-model or additional name to it "just their top of the line window." What should I believe?
2) Sunrise uses a stainless spacer versus the Soft Lite super spacer
3) Their myriad of Sunrise glass package options is very confusing
4) Condensation ratings seem to be lower relatively for Sunrise

What is your take on the information presented? Is the pricing reasonable for what I am getting? What do you recommend? Thanks.

Matt - Homeowner - from 2016

[Site Editor's Response]

Matt, the way I understand it, the Restorations comes standard with a few nice upgrades on the standard Sunrise frame, including a reinforced fibercore meeting rail and vertical sash, Max Edge spacer, foam filled chambers, and high transparency screen. Assuming that the bid you got includes these upgrades then I think you are good to go.

Both the windows use a nice spacer. Ask the dealer what his opinion is on the best glass package for your windows and direction they face. They should be able to provide some good insight as to an appropriate glass package. If you are still confused, go with the single upgraded low-e with argon fills, this should be fine.

I still think if you like the Sunrise, you should go with it. However, if the upgrades I mentioned above cost more, then go with the top of the line Soft-Lite window.

Sunrise Windows vs. Kolbe Latitude

We really like the warranty and reputation of Sunrise windows - got quoted a single window price of $559 from our only local distributor. I have that distributor coming to do a full quotation for everything we have. They're offereing $250 off for 4 purchased windows.

Tom - Homeowner - from 2016

[Site Editor's Answer]

Tom, I'd say the $559 per window is a good price and it sounds like they are offering some sort of discount from this. So yes, this is a good price.

In terms of the Kolbe windows, I haven't had much experience with the Latitude.

Sunrise Verde Windows Prices

The Sunrise Verde window uses the same frame as the "classic Sunrise," but comes standard with foam filled chambers, a foam wrap, and the Solar Clean glass package. The Verde incorporates both good design and function that should make it a window worth looking at, depending on whether your local dealer carries this particular model (not all dealers are going to offer the Verde model.) Compare the Sunrise Verde Series with the PGT 2200 - check all PGT windows prices here.

(assumes medium sized window and normal installation)

Sunrise Verde Windows Prices

Dear Dane. I'm hoping you can help me with an opinion. I need to replace my windows, and I came across your website which has a lot of useful information! I've gotten estimates from 4 installers, each selling a different product.

The two I've narrowed it down to are the ProVia EcoLite and the Sunrise Verde.

I'm having 11 windows replaced, one of which is a big picture window, and the Verde quote is coming to about $1500 more than the EcoLite quote. I know the Verde is the better window, but is it worth the $1500 price difference? I don't know that I need high end windows, just good, solid windows. The installer offering the EcoLite also offers the ProVia Aspect as a step up - would that be more comparable to the Verde in terms of quality?

Both installers have 4.7 star reviews on Google and offer long term warranties on their work, so they come out pretty equally there. So at this point it just comes down to the quality of the windows for me.

I'd appreciate your thoughts!

Joy - Homeowner - from 2021

[Site Editor's Answer]

Joy, so the Sunrise Verde is definitely worth $1500 over the ProVia EcoLite windows. The Verde is a really good vinyl window, while the EcoLite is an average window. The Verde would be comparable to the ProVia Endure, which is their premium window. The Aspect is ProVia's drop down window from the Endure. For me, I would probably spend the extra $1500 on the Verde and you will recoup that cost over the life of the window in energy savings.

Dane - Site Editor - from 2021

Sunrise Verde v. Polaris Ultraweld

Tim, based on what I read on your site (and a better price) I am choosing Polaris Ultraweld over Sunrise Verde. (I didn't mention Sunrise in my last email. I was looking for Sunrize, but the contractor offered Polaris at a lower price.)

Sunrise Verde (s) v. Polaris Ultraweld(p): $692(s) v. $631(p) for larger windows, $577(s) v. 541(p) for smaller. For doors(60x80): $2754(s) v. $2487(p).

After looking more closely at the Revere Sanctuary SG doors I understand why they are $500 less expensive.

It is not easy to compare products. Between names of products and model numbers and the sheer volume of data on NFRC, it's near impossible to determine at which product you are looking. For example, the Polaris brochure says "POL-M-39" as the Polaris' NFRC number, but on NFRC they have 3 for double-hung windows, none of them -39 (see below).

I did find -39 after playing with the search. On NFRC the name is not POLARIS WINDOWS, but POLARIS TECHNOLOGIES. Revere products are under ASSOCIATED MATERIALS and they have 9 entries when you search for double hung.

Sunrise Verde vs. Sunrise In House

I've narrowed my search to two companies, one installs the Sunrise Verde and the other does Sunrise in-house windows. The Verde is around $1000 cheaper, which comes out to around $18K for 25 windows.

Sunrise Verde vs. Simonton 9800

Hi there, I need to replace my windows, we live in Colorado and I have two pretty solid bids.

Sunrise Verde: $950 per window

Simonton 9800: $1350 per window

Joy - Homeowner - from 2018

[Site Editor's Answer]

Joy, the Sunrise verde is the better window over the Simonton 9800 model. This is the option I would go with, considering it's quite a bit less as well.

Sunrise Vanguard Windows Prices

The Sunrise Vanguard window is similar to the Sunrise Verde model, essentially a Standard Sunrise frame with a fibercore reinforced sash and a recessed lever lock. It also comes standard with separate tilt buttons and is available as a single hung.

The Vanguard is somewhat of a specialty model that was originally only available to certain distributors (it's unclear to us if this is still the case). Compare the Sunrise Vanguard Series to Okna 500 series price.

Sunrise Vanguard Windows Series Costs

Dane, I am looking to replace 20 yr old builder grade vinyl windows. I'm in Ohio, and your site has been helpful. I have between 25 and 29 windows (some companies priced some as "doubles", some priced a picture window as separate windows). I have 5 semi-round or eyebrow windows over some of the windows on the front.

My quotes are as follows:

Pella Company store for Pella 250 series, $25,600 installed;

Lowes- Pella 250 series $21,805 installed,

Windows Direct Sunrise Vanguard series, $28,000 (somehow they counted 29);

Home Depo, Simonton VantagePointe 6500 series, $21,617 installed;

All Seal Home Improvement Sunrise Windows (this dealer simply referred to them as “Sunrise” windows but all elements appear to be the same as the vantage pointe) $33,700.

What are your thoughts?

Michael - Homeowner - from 2020

[Site Editor's Answer]

Michael, for me the best value bid in your bunch is the Windows Direct Sunrise Vanguard series. Not cheap, but it's a much better value over the Pella 250 bids and Simonton VantagePointe series. The Sunrise Vanguard is an excellent window. The Vanguard is essentially a Sunrise frame with a fibercore reinforced sash, a recessed lever lock, and a nice tilt button. Obviously this bid is preferable to the Sunrise bid for $33.7K.

Overall, not a bad bid for the specialty windows you have and larger configurations in your project.

Jason - Homeowner - from 2020

[Site Editor's Answer]

Jason, if you really like wood clad and want to pay for these, then the Marvin Ultimate would probably be my suggestion. If vinyl is the option, the Sunrise Vanguard is the way to go. That's a pretty steep price though, I'm assuming there is lots of installation work involved in your project.

Sunrise Vanguard Quote

I have a slider patio door and 18 windows that will be half casements and half double sliders. All the installers have good reputations here in Denver. Which bid would you go for if this were your home?

Renewa Bidl: $42K

Anlin Catalina Bid: $19K

Sunrise Vanguard Bid: $19K

Diane - Homeowner - from 2019

[Site Editor's Answer]

Diane, my first vote would go to the Sunrise Vanguard, excellent window. My second vote would go to the Anlin Catalina, very good window. My third vote would go to collecting more bids so you don't have to pay $42,000 for 18 windows and a sliding door.

Dane - Site Editor - from 2019

[Diane's Reply]

Hi Dane, One more question. I did receive some additional bids and I am now looking at either Sunrise Vanguard latitude glass with summit technology (366/I-89) or PlyGem Premium. I am in Denver and the bids were within 100.00 of each other. I looked at Amerimax as well. They were a little cheaper by 1,000.00. I was concern with installer. Which is a better window overall for this area. Again they are double sliders, casements, picture, geo metric and a sliding door. I also want to go with colored exterior. Thank you in advance for your advise!

Dane - Site Editor - from 2019

[Site Editor's Answer]

Diane, I would suggest go with the Sunrise Vanguard over the PlyGem Premium. The Amerimax for $1000 less is not surprising and sort of confirms the bid prices you have. If you didn’t get a strong feeling from the installer, trust your gut and don’t go with the Amerimax! Honestly, the Sunrise Vanguard is a very very good window in my opinion. It’s a better window than the PlyGem Premium.

Dane - Site Editor - from 2019

Sunrise Vanguard Pricing

Need your advise on 18 wood casement windows and 1 sliding door being replaced with vinyl windows. Going with double sliders and mix of casement due to size. I have a bid for Anlin (Catalina and Coronado) and a bid from Vanguard Sunrise Latitude Glass with Summit Technology for high altitude. Both came in at 19k. Both seem to be qualified installers. We live in Denver. Just wondering which product would be best or a suggestion for another better suited product. Thank you.

D - Homeowner - from 2019

[Site Editor's Answer]

D, both the Anlin Catalina and Sunrise Vanguard are excellent windows. My own preference if the installation companies are even would be the Sunrise Vanguard. The Vanguard is a very well made window and I think a notch above the Anlin. You might want to consider getting a bid from a local Amerimax dealer just to see how the pricing compares. $19K for 18 windows is a somewhat hefty price tag, depending of course on the sizes of the windows themselves. Amerimax is a local and well reputed manufacturer. Their quality is good, not quite at the Sunrise level, but close.

It sounds like that's the best price you are going to get in terms of Sunrise. If you feel comfortable with that price, then you are getting an excellent window in the Vanguard.

Sunrise Restorations Windows Prices

The Sunrise Restorations window is their top rated window, as well as their most expensive. Reinforced with fibercore on both the meeting rail and the vertical sash, the Restorations feature a Max Edge spacer and foam filled chambers. The frame and sash are fairly narrow, which gives the window a nice slender and clean look. The window incorporates a clever tilt sash mechanism and comes standard with a high transparency screen. In addition, consumers will be impressed by the high quality frame finish.

Performance wise, consumers can expect the low-e glass and argon fill option to deliver a U-factor around of 0.27 and an air infiltration of 0.04, both quite impressive. More importantly, the quality of design and craftsmanship will translate to sustained energy efficiency over a much longer time period. The Sunrise Restoration is one of our top vinyl window selections. Compare the Sunrise Restorations Series to Soft-Lite Elements price.

Sunrise Restorations vs Okna 700

Hi. We are replacing a patio door and 32 windows with full frame installation.

Nate - Homeowner - from 2021

Sunrise Restorations Pricing Bid

Dane, well, I just received the price proposal from the window company that sells the Sunrise Restorations, and while they are rated high, the cost came out to $35k for 38 windows and 2 patio doors, compared to the company that installs the Ideal Platinum 3000, for $26k.

The dilemma now is that the company that had the highest customer ratings was the one that installed the Simonton Reflections 5500, and their cost is $24k.

So that is what I'm trying to figure out: is Ideal Platinum that good that I pay $2k more, or go with the better rated installer, but lesser window (Simonton 5500 Reflections), that also uses low expansion foam?

John - Homeowner - from 2021

[Site Editor's Answer]

If the company that installed the Ideal Platinum had excellent reviews, I'd go with them. If there was any question on that point, I would go with the Simonton dealer with the excellent reputation. I think that's the best way to cut this choice down to something that doesn't drive you crazy...

Sunrise Premium Windows Quote

Tim, thank you for your website, it has been a great starting point for my window search.

I’m replacing the original 19 double hung vinyl windows in my 3 story condo across from the Chesapeake Bay in Va Beach. It gets windy down here often.

I’ve only gotten 3 quotes from the same reputable company and another quote from a company I don’t know much about. I tried to get a quote from a reputable Okna dealer but they won’t touch the third floor.

I originally thought about getting single hung on the first and second floor because I thought they were more efficient but I can’t find any quality single hung windows.

My quotes are as follows:

Vinyl Kraft Legacy - $7,730

Sunrise Premium - $10,330

Trident Triple Pane - $11,230

Berkshire Elite Barrier XP - $11,879

The Legacy comes with a 20 year warranty.

I’m not sure what model the sunrise premium is. The website or the brochure doesn’t speak to models. These are with the Passive U glass. The Sunrise come with a lifetime labor and product warranty.

They described the Trident Triple Pane as a private label maxed out New River 5300 with Krypton.

I might be getting a Solace quote next week but they already want my wife to be present so I’m considering cancelling it.

I can swing the cost of any of these but I’m looking for the most value. I’m leaning towards the Legacy or Sunrise.

I seriously doubt this will be my forever home though it may become a rental property down the line. Thoughts on these windows or any other window quotes you think I should get here in coastal Virginia will be greatly appreciated.


Scott - Homeowner - from 2020

[Site Editor's Answer]

Scott, from the bids I'm seeing the top of my list by a lot would be the Sunrise Premium. Sunrise has a main series that is simply called the Sunrise. They have additional series that come with upgrades, but use this same window as the "base model." Their best window is the Sunrise Restorations, which is a very good window. The Sunrise standard is quite good. So I'm not totally sure what they are saying here, but perhaps they are talking about the Restorations model.

I believe Solace sells a relabeled Sunrise Restorations model. Ironic since you perhaps already have this bid. The whole thing about a spouse having to be there is bizarre. I really dislike when companies insist on this. Still, it would be interesting to see how the pricing compared to your original Restorations bid (assuming this is what they are referring to by Sunrise Premium).

The Legacy isn't a bad window, but I do think the Sunrise is probably worth the extra cost.

Tim - Site Editor - from 2020

Sunrise Restoration Windows Cost

Hi Dane: I contacted the local dealer here for Sunrise windows and got a bid on their Restoration line of windows. It seems more reasonable, though still really expensive, but I think we're getting way more window for the dollar. They're running a special that expires on 10/31, so we have to act quickly if we want the deal . . . I'd be grateful if you could give me your take on their estimate. It's from a company called Thebco; they've been in business here in Madison, WI for 48 years, and have a 4.8/5 rating on Google and people seem to LOVE their installers. All they do is windows, doors, and siding.

Reminder, we have 14 double casement windows, 2 single casement, and 2 oversize sliding glass doors.

Their base bid is $38,657 (normally $42,907) for R-7 triple pane AR-90, U factor 0.21 Low E glass. This price is actually about the same price as their regular price for double pane.

Add $5,520 for full-frame installation, which is what we'll have done, and it includes the wood laminate on the interior of the windows and solid wood trim (oak for the dark windows, poplar for the 2 white windows). If we want both sides of the casements to open, it's about another $5733, which brings us to $49,990.

We're eligible for a $2,000 voucher, and 5% off if we pay in cash upon completion of the job, bringing the cost down to $45,590. I think we're gonna get SolarClear self-cleaning glass for another $750 ($25/single casement, $50/double casement), and 2 foot locks for the doors ($65 each), bringing us to $46,470.

I think for 4 of the double casements, we will have only one side open, which will save us about $400/window (subtract another $1,600) so the grand total, including a lifetime transferable warranty on the windows, hardware, and installation, is about $44,870.

It seems that when comparing most statistics, Restoration beats Renewal by Andersen, and the Sunrise windows are triple pane vs. double pane for RBA. The RBA bid, again, was about $59,000 and doesn't include the Solar Clean glass or a lifetime warranty.

Here are some stats: Sunrise Restoration U-factor is 0.21 vs. 0.24 for RBA

Sunrise Restoration SHGC is 0.20 vs. 0.27

UV rays blocked is close, SR is 96% vs. 95% for RBA

Air infiltration for SR is 0.01; not sure about RBA, but it's gotta be way higher.

One thing that concerns me, though, is that the Visible Transmittance is 38% for Sunrise and 65% for RBA, so are the Sunrise windows going to be a lot darker?

So what's your assessment of this bid? Do I need to worry about the 38% vs. 64% VT ratings? If the prices were the same between SR and RBA, I think I'd still go with Sunrise even though it's vinyl on the outside (but fiberglass reinforced and UltraCore insulated) over the RBA composite because of the Sunrise lifetime transferable warranty and the stats are better for Sunrise vs. RBA in every area except VT.

I was certainly hoping for something closer to $40,000, but we are getting triple pane glass with Sunrise. Any suggestions on how to get a lower price? . . . I'll certainly ask Thebco if there's anything else they can do on the price. Again, I'd really appreciate your insights, Dane.

Thanks so much.

Marc - Homeowner - from 2020

[Site Editor's Answer]

Marc, the bid is seeming less high to me now that I'm looking at it more closely. Double casements are expensive, as is triple pane, the wood laminate, new construction installation etc.

The Restoration is a great window. The AI for the RBA is probably something like .11 on the casement.

As far as the VT, 38 is low I will say. It's all a function of the glass, so you should talk to the Sunrise dealer on glass options. Some people have an issue with a darker glass and others do not. I'd spend some time talking to the rep about glass packages and see if he has a way to show you what you'll be getting before the install date.

In terms of getting the bid down...if you're willing to gamble and tell him that you love his product, but you can't go above $40K and tell him to call you when he can make that work...that's probably your best bet. Let him know you are flexible on the install date...if that's true.

The issue we're dealing with is that top window companies are having to turn down work because everyone is going after these home improvement projects right now. We are going into winter so things slow down there.

Overall, great window in the Sunrise Restoration line and lots of upgrades and options in that mix.

Sunrise Restorations Windows Prices

Hi Dane and Tim, just wanted to get your take on the following quote for pocket vs full-frame replacement. This is for 18 Sunrise Restorations windows, including a 48x74 bay picture window (tempered glass), an entryway palladium roundtop 36x56, 9 double hung, and 5 transom windows. $13,200 for pocket inserts, $18,600 for full frame. This is from what appears to be a reputable Sunrise authorized installer with excellent reviews. Do these prices strike you as being inline with what you would expect? Would you consider it to be a "good deal"?

I have a second quote for a pocket install of Soft-Lite Elements at $13,600, from a reputable Soft-Lite authorized installer with stellar reviews.

Anthony - Homeowner - from 2020

[Site Editor's Answer]

Tony, this is quite a fair price for the variety of windows you have in your project list. Both on the insert price and the full frame price. The fact that the Soft-Lite dealer quoted you nearly the same price for the Elements would seem to confirm this. The Elements is probably the more energy efficient of the two windows, while the Restorations is the slimmer of the two.

So if the pocket installation is what you go with, the Restorations might be the best bet here.

Sunrise Restorations Series Quote

Hey Tim, if I can bother you once more, I'd sure appreciate it.

I got several other quotes. The most appealing is on the sunrise restoration casements, if I'm understanding the reviews on your site and the fact that Sunrise Restoration is better than Softlite Classic.

The Sunrise quote came in at $7900 for the 10 casement windows. Three of those have the Walnut interior to match my current trim. The others are white interior. All have the white exterior.

I plan to ask if he has any wiggle room in that price, but do you think we are in the ballpark?


Todd - Homeowner - from 2019

[Site Editor's Answer]

Todd, you are correct that the Sunrise Restorations series is better than the Soft-Lite Classic (much closer to the Soft-Lite Elements). In fact, it's one of the best vinyl windows on the market in my opinion, especially the casement. That is a very fair quote at $790 per window, especially with the interior laminate option on 3 of them. Always worth an ask to see if you can find their floor price, but you are definitely in the ballpark for what I consider one of the sleekest, nicest looking, and energy efficiency vinyl windows out there.

Dane - Site Editor - from 2019

Sunrise Ultra Premium vs. Simonton 5500

Hello, I really appreciate the information on your website. Have been looking at replacement windows in Northeastern Illinois. Was initially leaning toward the Simonton 5500, but after reading the reviews, I'm more inclined to go with the Sunrise standard. I have a quote for 13 windows, and really like the installer because the rep took a lot of time to explain the process, no high pressure, and they have many excellent reviews on Angie's list.

But the price of 12,690 for 13 windows seems a bit high, especially when looking at the various prices people have mentioned on your website. There is a 5% discount off the price if you don't take their 18th month deferred financing. Specs are below. Really appreciate your insight. My windows are all 70 ½" tall, and on average, the widths are 34 inches. 8 of the windows are pairs (2 windows side by side in one opening.)

Option 2: Sunrise Ultra Premium Vinyl Replacement windows. White interior, white exterior, Omega 12 squared performance glass package with Low-e / argon. Polyurethane foam filled frame, standard half screens and white hardware. U factor of .25, SHGC of .21 on these units. Total project cost of $12,690

[Site Editor's Answer]

Marilyn, at first glance that does sound high to me, but I don't know enough about the specifics to say that for sure. So how did the bid price compare to the Simonton 5500 quote? That would be very helpful to know in terms of figuring out whether the price is fair or not.

Sunrise Platinum Replacement Windows

Dane, I have an estimate for 12 sunrise platinum series vinyl replacement windows. All glass is Omega 12 HP glass & interior Low E . All optiview screens . All windows are double hung . The window sizes are as follows : 5 windows 23 x 53.5 , 6 windows 31 x 53.5 , One window 30 x 38 . The estimate I received is $ 12,140.00 . Do you feel this is a reasonable estimate. I live in the Buffalo, New York area.

John - Homeowner - from 2019

[Site Editor's Answer]

John, the bid sounds a bit high, but I can't really say that without something to compare it to. The Sunrise platinum series (I'm assuming this is the Restorations series or close to it) is an excellent vinyl window. $1000 plus is at the very top of the vinyl window per cost range. A couple more bids from comparable products will show us how legit the bid is.

Here are some top quality brands to search in your area: Soft-Lite, Okna, HiMark (they sell Okna), Polaris, Kensington, and Vytex. You want to get bids on their premium series to compare apples-to-apples. I obviously don't know how complex your project, but I would bet you can get a comparable product at a better price point with a few extra bids.

Sunrise Restoration Quote

Hi Dane, thanks for your feedback. I was able to get the Sunrise Restorations for $600 a window. I also received an estimate for the Zen Nirvana-- for $560 a window. Any thoughts on the two offers? Thanks!!!

Nick - Homeowner - from 2018

[Site Editor's Answer]

Nick, $600 per window on the Sunrise Restorations is an excellent price. Definitely worth $40 more over the Zen Nirvana. I would say go with the Restorations, one of the best vinyl windows on the market.

Tim - Site Editor - from 2017

Sunrise Restoration Quote

We have quotes on 42 windows, some half rounds and some quarter rounds. The remainder are double hung windows.

Pella Impervia: $55K

Sunrise Restoration: $48K

Replacement by Anderson: $90K

Vahe - Homeowner - from 2018

Sunrise Restorations vs. Window World And Others

I've looked at a ton of windows, from Pella, Alside, Marvin, and Window World. I got a quote on the Sunrise Restorations, which I really liked. It included 16 Restorations with full frame installation over board and batten siding. The windows come with an insulated sash, grids, Omega-12 glass, and full screens. It also includes a 5 window bow window with the same setup.

Total with installation was $18,630.

Sunrise Restorations Quote

I need to replace 26 windows in all -- 17 double hungs and the rest different shapes and sizes. I live in a single story, brick exterior home. I recently received a quote on the Sunrise Restorations that came in at $33K. I know I have some complicated windows, but this definitely seemed high to me.

Sunrise Restorations vs. Okna Starmark

We are replacing 1 sliding patio door and 36 windows that are a combination of picture windows and double hungs. These are the window bids we have so far.

Okna Starmark: $33,000

Soft-Lite Imperial LS: $46,500

Sunrise Restorations: $53,000

Kristen - Homeowner - from 2018

Sunrise Restoration Series Bid

I recently received a bid of $17,100 to replace 21 wood windows with Sunrise Restoration series replacement windows ( actually 2 of the 21 would be full frame replacement windows). The largest of the windows are 54x 36 ( about six of them) and the rest are smaller. This is from the only sunrise dealer in my area. I live in Athens Tennessee. What do you think of this bid?


Gary - Homeowner - from 2017

[Site Editor's Answer]

Gary, the bid is not out of the realm of what's reasonable, but it does seem at first glance to be at the upper end of the price spectrum.

I think you need two more bids to see whether that one is fair market price or is too high. The Sunrise restorations undoubtedly a good one, but I'll bet you can get even the bid you have a bit lower.

Dane - Site Editor - from 2017

Sunrise Restorations with Omega Glass

Just got a quote on replacing 20 double hungs and 1 awning. I'm in Michigan and the quote was for $16500 on the Sunrise Restorations.

Eric - Homeowner - from 2017

[Site Editor's Answer]

Excellent window, but I think you can get that bid lower than the original quote.

Sunrise Restoration or Simonton Assure and 5500

Tim, I've read your reviews and appreciate all the insight. My husband and I are looking to replace all 34 of our windows in our 20 year old house in Marietta, GA. We've had quotes on both Sunrise (Restoration) and Simonton (Assure and 5500). We're trying to decide if it's worth the additional (nearly $8,000) expense is worth it for the Sunrise Restoration. Essentially, we need to determine what's the better window for us. Any thoughts on these 2?

Sandy - Homeowner - from 2017

[Site Editor's Answer]

Sandy, I think the $8000 is probably worth it to go with the Sunrise Restoration windows, they really are excellent. Having said that, the Simonton 5500 is a very decent vinyl window and it's easy for me to say go spend $8K more when I'm not the one actually writing the check. I would not go with the Asure, I don't think it's anywhere as good as these other two.

What I'd like to see you do is go back to the Sunrise dealer and see what his lowest price is -- here is an article that explains the approach I take when I'm trying to get the best deal.

Tim - Site Editor - from 2017

Sunrise Restorations vs. Soft-Lite Imperial LS

Hi Tim and Dane, I need to replace 5 windows and 1 patio door. I live in MN. Have received quotes from three different companies for 3 different products. Could you let me know which one would be the best product to go with and is the quote reasonable? I plan to stay in this house for a long time so the goal is to do a good replacement that would last for a while. I currently have vinyl and white siding. Plan to replace with same since I'm not doing the whole house.

1) Sunrise Restorations - approximately $12k

2) Andersen 100 Series windows & 200 Series patio door - approximately $12.6k

3) Soft-Lite Imperial LS - approximately $11.2k (with full frame replacement - quotes from the first two companies do not include full frame replacement)

Dimension of my windows/patio:

1) Patio 70.875 x 79.5
2) 106.5 x 63.5 (three panels of 35.5 x 63.5 each)
3) 23.5 x 47.75
4) 47.75 x 59.5
5) 71 x 65 (2 panels of 35.5 x 65 each)
6) 83 x 65 (2 panels of 41.5 x 65 each)

I hope to be able to make a decision this week and would appreciate your feedback.


Yen- Homeowner - from 2017

[Site Editor's Answer]

Yen, since you have to take off some of the siding to replace the windows anyway, I would go with the full frame replacement, which will provide a stronger fit and insures a better water seal at the top and sides of the frame. Of the bids you have, I like the Soft-Lite Imperial LS with the full frame and its the cheapest -- how often does that happen :)

The Imperial LS is a fantastic window, one that will last as long as your siding will, which is important because it's costly to repair windows when they have to pull siding off, etc. Best to it all in one fell swoop if possible and save yourself some money on the labor.

If for some reason that bid doesn't work out, I would then go with the Sunrise Restorations.

Tim - Site Editor - from 2017

Sunrise Restorations vs. Okna Casements

I have a question on pricing for the Sunrise Windows. Unfortunately I cannot say for sure which line it is but would guess it is the Restoration. The rep told me they customize the window by having an additional layer of insulation added to the third layer that would normally be left empty. I need a total of 10 windows, replaced, all casements (4 total openings, 2 fixed pitcure windows, 8 operating). I would be getting a dark oak interior, and a tan outside trim with dark brown moulding. I was quoted $10,500 which is for full replacement. Price includes everything except for re-staining the new oak trim on the inside. Windows range in size from 96" x 58" to 38" x 34". Price seems high, however I have a price for OKNA 700 series for $9600 which is for inserts. We live in the metro Racine, WI area. Thanks!

Paul - Homeowner - from 2016

[Site Editor's Answer]

Paul, I'd put the Okna 700 and Sunrise Restorations on par with one another. So assuming that the Okna 700 price is fair market value then the Sunrise quote is high (I know I just stated the obvious but let's keep going here). You might want to get another bid to see if you can get a number lower than the Okna and then perhaps go back to the Okna dealer and see if they will match it. They probably won't, but if you ask them to match it, they will hopefully give you their best price, which might be lower than the one you have now.

Dane - Site Editor - from 2016

Sunrise Restorations Series Pricing

We have quotes for Sunrise Restorations windows installed by a local contractor with excellent reviews, and Renewal by Andersen. Trying to decide between the two. I like the look of the RBA with real wood veneer a bit better, but the Sunrise with faux wood finish is good, and almost matches with our woodwork. There would be 2 picture windows, 6 casements that open, , 3 that don't, and 2 very small picture windows. The Sunrise quote is @ $12,000. The RBA is $17,000 and then another $1500-$2000 for the staining if we don't do it ourselves. Quality and performance wise- do you think the RBA is any better and worth the extra money? Or is it more about looks?

We also have a quote for Starmark windows with the faux wood finish. We had liked how stout the window seemed, and all the insulation in the frames. The wood color wasn't as close of a match as the Sunrise, but probably doable. The corner welds weren't as pretty- the diagonal seams stuck out a bit, making it more obvious that it was not wood. Their quote was $20,500. We had ruled them out due to price, but now am not sure. We hope to stay in our home at least another 20+ years.Any thoughts about the 3 quotes? Also, do you represent some of these companies? I can't really tell from the website. So I guess what I am asking is do you have a bias, and/or vastly more experience with some brands over others. I don't mean to be offensive, because I have really appreciated your site and all your info.

Gail - Homeowner - from 2016

[Site Editor's Answer]

Gail, the quality, performance and construction will be better on the Restorations line than the Renewals. The Starkmark is a bit of a beast, but very well made. However, if it were me I'd stick with the Sunrise Restorations for the $12K, it is one of the very best vinyl windows available.

We don't represent any of these companies so there is no bias on our end. Of course, everyone has their favorite brands -- mine are Sunrise, Okna, Soft-Lite, Polaris, and Kensington.

Tim - Site Editor - from 2016

Sunrise Restorations Cost

I recently received quotes on 27 windows for both Wincore and Champion double hungs. Both of the installers have excellent reviews and they were both pleasant to meet with etc. -- it's probably a wash in terms of that.

Wincore 5400: $11,900

Wincore 7700: $13,900

Champion: $15,900

Sunrise Restoration: $26,000

Sunrise Standard: $17,500

Angie - Homeowner - from 2016

[Site Editor's Answer]

Angie, I like the Sunrise Restoration, but it's probably not worth it to pay $26K compared with $14K. I like either the Wincore 7700 at $14K or the Sunrise Standard for $17,500. I think the $3500 is probably worth it for the Sunrise, but the 7700 window is quite good in my estimation.

Dane - Site Editor - from 2016

Sunrise Restoration Casement Pricing

I have 3 casement windows that I would like to replace with double hung to stay within my budget. My windows are 42x53 and I am considering inserts not full replacements. I am looking at Sunrise Windows. Will I lose any insulation factors not going with full replacement ? It's the Restoration line at 1,000.00 per window. Does this price make sense ? Should I consider lower line with Sunrise ? I like the "more glass" less frame !

Bridget - Homeowner - from 2016

[Site Editor's Answer]

Bridget, you won't lose any appreciable insulation with inserts, but you will lose a small amount of glass on each side. However the Sunrise Restorations is a narrower frame than nearly all other vinyl windows out there (and one of the very best). You can always go with the standard Sunrise window and then get ala carte upgrades that make sense for your project. This could lower the cost. $1000 a window is pretty pricey, but without other bids from other companies, it's pretty tough to say whether this is unreasonably high. Can't hurt to get a couple more bids…even if its just to bring back to the Sunrise dealer and see how close he can get to the competitor's price.

Dane - Site Editor - from 2016

Sunrise Restorations Bid vs Ideal Platinum 3000

I recently got 2 bids, one on the Ideal Platinum 3000 for $6600 and the other for Sunshine Restoration window at $9200. I've read that the Restorations is a great window, but is it worth that much more than the Platinum 3000?

Jene - Homeowner - from 2016

[Site Editor's Response]

Jene, the Restorations is certainly one of the better vinyl windows, but it's unclear whether it's $2700 better that the Platinum 3000, which delivers a .02 air infiltration and a .22 U-factor. I might have to give the nod to the Ideal Platinum 3000 on this one. This may be a first that I didn't recommend the Sunrise Restorations window!

Tim - Site Editor - from 2016

Sunrise Restorations Bid

What would be a fair price for replacement of about 18 windows with Sunrise Restorations windows with Omega 12 glass?

Ananth - Homeowner - from 2016

[Site Editor's Response]

Ananth, I would say the Sunrise Restorations windows with Omega 12 glass would be something like $550 to $750 per window, but again you need to get bids because I have no idea what the condition of your window frames are, the type of installation you need, whether you need or want additional services such as exterior capping, etc. There are so many factors that go into any project that the real industry price is only gleamed by getting 3 or 4 bids from quality companies and getting the consensus.

Good luck!

Dane - Site Editor - from 2016

Sunrise Restoration Window Costs

Tim, I got an estimate from a window company for Sunrise Restoration windows. There are 3 twin mulled windows 35x59 and one window 40x59. Basically 7 windows with 3 of them mulled. Includes full screens and grids. Cost is $8322. including all discounts.

Does this sound like a reasonable price quote? The salesman talked to just me (husband is travelling) and told me how the installation would go. And he emailed me the brochure of the short video that he had me watch. Just wondering if I need to get estimates from other companies or if this sounds like a good estimate.

Sharon - Homeowner - from 2016

[Site Editor's Response]

Sharon, it doesn't sound unreasonable, but I always advise getting three bids to figure out the right and best price. Bids will vary tremendously, especially when the project involves additional work like yours. Sunrise Restoration is an excellent window, but over $1K per window is expensive. I would get a couple more bids, if for no other reason than you can take the lower bid and tell the Sunrise rep what it is and ask if he can get his bid closer to the subsequent two – nothing like a little competition to lower the cost!

Dane - Site Editor - from 2016

Sunrise Window Costs vs Okna 400 Pricing

I live in northern New Jersey and I need to replace one bathroom window in the tub/shower area. Window size is about 22" x 41". I have gotten several price quotes. All include obscure, tempered glass, argon filled, low-E with no grills.

Includes installation:

Okna 400 series – Deluxe energy savings package - $600 (500 series - $650)

Sunrise Standard - Ultra-U Plus glass system - $620 (Vanguard - $665)

Silverline 9500 - $485 (8600 - $445, 1200 - $380)

Does not include installation

United Windows 4800 series - $307

Seller does not install and since I was not leaning toward this window I did not get an installation quote from a third party.

I was considering the Sunrise Standard, but leaning toward the Okna 400. What is your opinion between these two windows and of all the options?

Thanks for your help!

Carey - Homeowner - from 2016

[Site Editor's Response]

Carey, I think the two strongest bids are the Okna 500 and Sunrise Standard. The Okna 400 is right below this. I think you can forget about the Silverline and United Window bids. If it were me, I'd do the Okna 500, but I think installation should be the deciding factor between the Okna and Sunrise. How do the installers compare in terms of reviews, reputation, industry experience. Ask them to take you through the process and see how thorough they answer the question. I think you have two good options here.

Dane - Site Editor - from 2016

Sunrise Windows Cost Quote

Dane, here are my quotes and the specs on each. All of them include an upper sash 2x4 grid, obscure glass in both sashes of largest window, all white, tan capping on outside.

8 double-hungs approx sizes:

1 @ 42 3/4 x 48 3/4
1@ 33 3/4 x 53 1/2
4 @ 43 3/4 x 67 1/2
2 @ 43 3/4 x 57

Bid 1: Sunrise Vanguard, $10,216

Bid 2a: Alside Mezzo double-pane $5,280 (includes full screens, accidental glass breakage, grids, obscure glass, EPA removal process/materials, removal of existing awnings)

Bid 2b: Alside Mezzo triple-pane $5,760 (includes full screens, accidental glass breakage, grids, obscure glass, EPA removal process/materials, removal of existing awnings)

Bid 3a: Simonton 9800 series $5460 (5% cash discount; Pro Solar 366 low-E with argon gas, flat colonial grids, Ultra-U Plus glass system, full screens)

Bid 3b: Sunrise "Double-hung" (not Essentials) $6455 (5% cash discount; waiting for detail on this bid along with pricing for Simulated Divided Lites grid and OptiView screens)

The Alside is being pushed for it's better, more comprehensive warranty over other manufacturers. The Simonton is being pushed for 9800 series "at the 5500 series price."

I can't compare Sunrise bids because I can't tell if they're the exact same window and features. Significantly different quotes has me puzzled. I like the low profile latch on the Sunrise.

I prefer to go with block and tackle balances over coil but may have to compromise; same with SDL over standard flat grid.

Bid 3 installer also sells Great Lakes brand to consider but I don't have quote for that one.

U-factor must meet or exceed 2016 Energy Star ratings so we can qualify for tax credit. All 3 installation companies are long-standing with A+ BBB ratings.

Thanks, in advance, for your input.

Joanne - Homeowner - from 2016

[Site Editor's Response]

Hi Joanne, there is a lot here to discuss, let's start with the bids. For me, the best value in that bunch is Bid 3b, the Standard Sunrise at $6455. Bid3a on the Simonton 9800 series would be my second choice. The Mezzo is a decent window, but I like the 9800 better and it's cheaper in this case than the Alside Mezzo price quote.

The Sunrise Vanguard is a very good window, but I don't think it's worth that much money over your last bid. The Standard Sunrise window uses the same frame as the Vanguard, but the Vanguard includes a number of nice upgrades and features that don't come standard on the "base" Sunrise window. If there is an upgrade or two that you like, you can always add this to the base model and see how that affects the overall project cost.

Assuming you like the installer for Bid3b and feel like they will do a thorough and professional job, this would be my choice for sure.

Sunrise Restorations Windows Costs vs Harvey Tribute

Our house is getting a remodel and we have mostly double hungs (some of the smaller bathroom windows that require a tempered glass), 1 horizontal slider and several basement hopper windows. The quotes we have

Sunrise Restorations
$465 - Double Hung
$420 - Horizontal Slider
$250 - Hoppers

Harvey Tribute
$490 - Double Hung
$450 - Horizontal Slider
$390 - Hoppers

Tina - Homeowner - from 2011

[Contractor Response]

Tina, the Sunrise Restorations is one of the best vinyl windows out there and the price you are getting is frankly very low. The Harvey Tribute is a good window and the price is actually good, but the Tribute can't compete with the Restorations.

Sunrise Solace Windows Reviews

The Sunrise Solace is really the Sunrise Restorations window sold by an exclusive set of dealers. Please click our Restorations link to see what our editors think of this high vinyl/fiberglass window.

Tim - Site Editor

-- Estimated Sunrise Solace Price: $700 to $850 installed --
(assumes medium sized window and normal installation)

Sunrise Solace Windows Cost

The Alenco rep apparently sells Solace windows - I asked about why the website said Sunrise and quote was for Solace windows.

Good afternoon! I am confident that Alenco Home Improvement will offer you the "best" window replacement value to permanently address your home's challenged Wood Windows.

As discussed, Alenco's Solace Windows offers a better replacement window in the marketplace because of our patented FIBERCORE frame technology! Our FIBERCORE frame prevents your windows from ever warping. NO other replacement window can make this guarantee. Other window frames will eventually bow, flex or warp and make them very difficult to open and allow cold/hot air to enter your home.

As discussed, there are additional manufacturers savings extended this week that offer you exceptional value. As a possible strategy, you could consider replacing your home's 10 front elevation windows excluding your geometric window in your closet. Alenco Home Improvement would remove your home's existing windows, perfectly size and install each New Double Hung with a Black exterior, English Walnut interior, Low E366 insulated glass with colonial grilles (in between the insulated glass) on each Double Hung's Top Sash Only with Half Screens. This option is only a $17,896 installed investment. If you prefer a White Exterior with an English Walnut Interior this installed investment is only $14,483! If helpful, we can review easy plan plans ranging from 12 months SAC to 24 months 0% interest.

Marilyn - Homeowner - from 2021

[Site Editor's Answer]

Marilyn, the Solace should be the Sunrise Restorations that is simply relabeled under the Solace name to certain reps/distibutors. This is my understanding. However, confirm this before you proceed.

Assuming this is the Restorations, and the mention of the fibercore leads me to believe it is, this is Sunrise's best window. Actually, it's one of the very best vinyl/fiberglass windows on the market. One more however...your quote is really expensive for 10 windows.

Before proceeding, I would collect a couple more bids. For instance, the Zen dealer in your area sells a very good window in the Lotus (a relabeled Soft-Lite Pro). Not as good as the Sunrise Restorations, but still good. I believe they have a very good reputation.

Here is my list of good and great windows for you if you want to investigate further...

Sunrise Windows Solace Cost

Dane, Tim, I'm comparing quotes to replace 3 windows side by side, Double hung. Just noticed small amount of rot on interior sill so will replace stool as well. What's your thoughts on these two options?

1st quote: 3 x Wincore 7700 windows. $3373 includes installation.

2nd quote: 3 x Sunrise Solace windows. $4024 includes installation and tax.

I have a 35"x17" eyebrow above the middle window as well but 1st quote didn't think we needed to replace. 2nd quote said they would have to replace. The eyebrow price alone would be $2441. That is not included in the quote above.


Shawn - Homeowner - from 2021

[Site Editor's Answer]

Shawn, the eyebrow piece of this is throwing me a bit because that’s a pricey fix. But if it’s leaking through the roof/eyebrow then it has long term implications for the window below.

On the question of the Wincore 7700 and the Sunrise Solace, the price difference is fair. I think you’d be fine with the 7700, but the Sunrise is the better window. For me, these decisions come down to your timeline in the house with an over under of say 10 years.

If this were my project, I’d get more bids as a cost free method to understanding whether or not I needed to remove the eyebrow or whether some interior flashing and framing could shore everything up at a fraction of that cost.

Sunrise Solace vs. OKNA 600DX

Hi Dane and Tim,

Thank you very much for the information from your web site. I found it very useful.

Could you please help me to decide between two quotes?

I need to replace one patio sliding door with a transom window above (custom external color) plus 4 double hung windows (two of them are >100 UI).

I got several quotes from different companies for this project but finally need to decide between the two of them.

Company #1 Sunrise Solace (aka Restorations) windows/door: $7200;

Company #2 OKNA 600DX windows, Elegante 8800 sliding door with OKNA 500 transom window: $9200.

On the first glance the decision is quite obvious, but there is a catch. Company #1 has very good reviews, but specializes mostly on roof installation. However, multiple reviews about their work on window installation are also very good. 5-year workmanship warranty.

Company #2 specializes mostly on window installation and has excellent reviews, i.e., slightly higher rating. Lifetime workmanship transferable warranty.

Is it worth to spend additional $2K for the better workmanship warranty? On one hand, this could be additional peace in mind and possible benefit if we decide to move to another place and sell our home (no plans for this now). However, I am not sure that this warranty adds much value from a practical perspective considering that any installation issues will probably reveal themselves in less than 5 years. In addition, I plan to replace another sliding door and ~10 windows in future, and, therefore, the difference in overall cost could become quite substantial.

What is your opinion about these options?

Thank you.

Alex - Homeowner - from 2020

[Site Editor's Answer]

Alex, both the Sunrise Restorations and OKNA 600DX are top tier vinyl windows and doors. So for me, to save $2K is a pretty big deal. Of course, I would insist that the crew that comes in and does the work is their best window installation team. Essentially that they spend at least a handful of days a month installing windows.

You are typically going to know in the first month if there are issues with the doors and windows. A top tier product won't develop problems for another 15 years at least.

Since you are replacing more windows and doors down the road, you will want to go with the Sunrise Restorations in my opinion. Save the money...I'll bet you can figure out a place to spend it!

Sunrise Impact Windows Reviews

Sunrise Coastal Windows vs. Sunrise Vanguard 10

Hello received quotes from 2 sunrise dealers.

One Rep offered the sunrise vanguard 10 windows 1 sliding patio door with Omega 12 glas $8670 the other Rep offered sunrise Coastal he would match the price $8670

I have not heard of the sunrise coastal before and have not found anything/ reviews online.

I was told the sunrise vanguard is not dp 50 rated but the coastal sunrise window is so is the sliding door. We live in South Carolina not on the coast however we do get Hurricans here inland too.

Which one would be better? Is the quoted price ok?

Any info is appreciated.

Since you are in an area that is subject to hurricane like conditions, I would say go with the Coastal Sunrise window. Same price and you get the extra DP rating.

Looking at the Simonton Innovo sliding door and the Sunrise sliding door. The Simonton Innovo is $1000 less than the Sunrise.
