Editor's Sunrise Windows Reviews

Sunrise Windows And Doors is a one of the top tier vinyl window companies in the United States, along with Soft-Lite and Okna windows. Their top of the line window is the Restorations Series, which is considered an excellent window with stellar performance numbers to back it up.

Essentially, the Restorations model is the standard Sunrise extrusion that comes standard with many of the nicer upgrades, including a reinforced meeting rail and vertical sash, Max Edge spacer, foam filled chambers, a great tilt sash mechanism and a high transparency screen. The Restorations is a top five vinyl window in my opinion.

Sunrise is based out of Michigan and they have strong distribution in the area and in many of the Eastern States. Unfortunately, Sunrise windows are not available in the western states.

Sunrise Restorations vs Ideal Majestic Windows

I've received prices from a single installer for 3 different vinyl windows: Ideal Majestic, Soft-lite Elements, Sunrise Restorations. All of the prices are within $3000 of each other to replace all the windows in the house with Ideal being the cheapest and the Sunrise being the most expensive. Soft-lite seemed like a good middle of the road pricing option, but i don't love that they have the biggest frame, especially since we're coming from historic wood windows. Are the Sunrise windows worth the extra money? We're not sure how much longer we'll be in the house. could be 4 years could be forever. Appreciate your thoughts.

Caroline, the Soft-Lite Elements and Sunrise Restorations are very close in quality, I might put the Elements above the Restorations by a nose. They are two of the very best vinyl windows out there and a notch above the Ideal Majestic series.

However, the Restorations does use that thinner frame, which is very nice in terms of the overall aesthetic. I would definitely recommend going with either the Elements of Restorations, I personally don't mind the thicker frame, in fact, it makes the window feel a bit sturdier to me, more substantial.

So this is what I would say, if the thinner frame is important to you for its visual appeal, shell out the extra money for the Restorations. If not, go with the Elements. Either way, you are getting a fantastic window!

Are Sunrise Restorations Vinyl Or Fiberglass

In answers on your site, these are called vinyl windows. My understanding is that they're fiberglass. Which is correct?

Carol - Homeowner - from 2016

The Sunrise Restoration uses a narrow vinyl frame (referred to on their website as PVC) that is reinforced in the sash frame and along the meeting rails with a fibercore material that is a composite of vinyl and fiberglass. So technically it's a composite window, but the window uses both vinyl and fiberglass components.

At the end of the day, it's a fantastic window that provides a lot of advantages over it's competitors!

Sunrise Restoration vs Simonton 5500

I'm replacing my windows in my manufactured home and wondering what you can tell me about the Simonton Reflections 5500 and the Sunrise Restoration Series. We have received bids from both and the Simonton bid was higher. We live in North Dakota and I like the fact that the Sunrise windows I can purchase from a local dealer. Thank you.

Cheryl, the Sunrise Restorations is a top tier vinyl window, really top notch. The Simonton Reflections 5500 is a good window, but I wouldn't put it in the top tier, I might put it in the top tier of mid range vinyl window category. The fact that the Simonton bid was higher makes this even easier, go with the Sunrise! You are getting an excellent window!

Sunrise Restorations vs. Okna 800

Hi, I'm trying to decide between the Okna 800 Series and the Sunrise Restorations. Both pricing is pretty comparable with the sunrise being slightly higher. I am liking it due to the fiberglass core inside to strengthen it and because the company is "installation master certified". I like the Okna extra sill dam, magnetic closure and that it doesn't use a metal spacer at all. Do you have any recommendations on which way to go. They both have their own perks but my husband seems to be sold on the installation master guy. Both guys seem really good and have great reviews overall in our area, north/central NJ.

Sonja, both of these windows are excellent so kudos to you for finding such quality products to put in your home. I would focus on installation at this point since both windows are going to serve you well. I like the idea of using master certified installers because they know the windows so well. If it were me, this is the way I would be leaning.
