Sunrise Essentials Windows Prices

Sunrise Essentials Window

The Sunrise Essentials window is their entry level option, although it's still probably a better option than some companies 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. Compare the Sunrise Essentials Series to the Amerimax Masters Grande - see all Amerimax windows pricing.

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 Essentials Series Cost

We're replacing three double hung windows and up to this point this is what we've gotten bids on.

Wincore 7700: $1,440

Sunrise Essential: $1800

Will - Homeowner - from 2018

Sunrise Essentials Bid

Hi, I have two window bids, the Sunrise Essentials for $14,735 or the Vytex Grandview for $18,529. The project involves 30 double hung windows and from what I can tell the installation quality would be similar in quality.

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 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

Sunrise 2100 Window Pricing

I've had two bids on 11 windows and a three lite slider with screens. Both have a U-factor of .29.

[Site Editor's Answer]

Lew, all very good windows and about what I'd expect in terms of cost of price differences between the windows. Any choose you make is going to be good. I'd go with the best company out of the group.

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. ;-)

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.

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.

Carl - Homeowner - from 2018

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.

Dane - Site Editor

Sunrise Vanguard Window Quote

We need to replace 13 windows and have a number of bids -- the Sunrise Vanguard is $8235, the Vytex Heritage is $8590, the SoftLite Elements iss $7446, and the Simonton Generations is $6910.

Keith - Homeowner - from 2011

Sunrise Vanguard Cost Bid

I am in the process of replacing 11 vinyl windows and would like to find a well made mid range option. I have talked with lots of local reps, including a Simonton rep who wants to sell me the 5050 model with upgrades that he said make it the same as the 5500 series, which I know you recommend. The price he has quoted me out at is $5200.

I also have a quote on the Sunrise Vanguard, but that is $7800.

Clint - Homeowner - from 2018

Sunrise Vanguard: $15,734
Sunrise Restorations: $20,645

Lori - Homeowner - from 2017

[Site Editor's Answer]

Lori, the Restorations is a great window, but it isn't worth the extra $5K by any means. The Vanguard is the better value by far. Now can your husband get that $15.7K bid on the Vanguard down to $13K - $14K. If so, I think that's your best long term value...

Dane - Site Editor - from 2016

Sunrise Vinyl Casements Bid

I have a bid from Sunshine Contractors who are installing Sunrise vinyl casements with a lifetime warranty. 47 windows, exterior colors, and one fiberglass patio door from ProVia. The cost quote is $34,750. The quote for the Sunrise Vanguard was considerably higher, in the high $40s.

Kim - Homeowner - from 2017

For the complete question and answer set to the above pricing quote, please see Sunrise Vanguard reviews.

Sunrise Vanguard Costs In Texas

Sunrise has only ONE dealer in Texas for Restoration windows, and ONE OTHER guy for Vanguard. The Restorations salesman was rude and pushy. The Vanguard guy has his own small company and was actually recommended to me by a sales manager at Sunrise.

At this time, I have a Vanguard quote for 18 windows with s3200a triple pane window (SHGC=0.16) for $15K.

Ananth - Homeowner - from 2016

[Site Editor's Response]

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.

Tim - Site Editor

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

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 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 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.

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!

[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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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!

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!

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.

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.

Harvey Tribute Window Pricing vs Sunrise Restorations

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 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.

Brigitte - Homeowner - from 2018

[Site Editor's Answer]

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.
