Revere Berkshire Elite Windows Reviews

The Revere Berkshire Elite window is the company's mid range vinyl window. The Berkshire Elite includes some nice features, including a narrowline sash and frame, Fortress cam lock, a composite reinforcement at the meeting rail, low-profile hardware, a true sloped sill, a screen bulb seal and a sash to sill interlock.

The window is available in a number of interior colors and finishes, including a white and a beige, along with a number of woodgrain options such as a soft or rich maple, light or dark oak, foxwood and a cherry. The exterior is available in a white, beige, english red, architectural bronze, castle gray, forest green, hudson khaki, desert clay, and an american terra.

The Revere Berkshire Elite is a decent window, a strong mid range offering. It is often sold as a premium window and sometimes sold at premium prices. Revere doesn't have the reputation as one of the elite vinyl window manufacturers in the industry, but some of their reps try to sell the window as if it is. Given the right price, however, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this window over a lot of windows out there.

Andy, I agree that on paper these two windows look pretty close, it's one of the reasons that choosing the right window presents such a tricky prospect. However, the Soft-Lite Imperial LS window is by far the better made of these two windows. Assuming the installation is equal in quality, I wouldn't hesitate to go with the Soft-Lite option.

Revere Berkshire Elite And Soft-Lite Elements

I have not yet seen the Revere Revere Berkshire Elite nor the Elements by Soft-lite. Your review mentioned that Revere Berkshire Elite is comparable to the Soft-lite Imperial LS. We need to replace our Pella casements from 1986 and will be need about 30 windows...ugh! I would be happy to go with double hung to save money but I need the lowest air infiltration possible as well as good sound proofing as I live on a busy street with lots of traffic. My house is always dusty, dirty and noisy.

Tomorrow I am planning to go to Pal Aluminum,Inc in Hicksville, NY. This was the only place I have found that are supposed to carry Revere windows. I would appreciate any advice and your thoughts on which windows are better. I haven't been able to find the sound transmission ratings either. Thank you very much!

Jan while the numbers are similar, as far as I'm concerned, the Soft-Lite Elements is the MUCH better of the two windows. If it were me and the prices were anywhere similar, I would opt for the Soft-Lite over the Revere. I know some online reviewers are big proponents of this window, but you may want a third party opinion. Type this in in google "site:www.replacement-windows.com revere berkshire" and it will be bring up all posts where a number of independent contractors discuss different brands. This is a great site for research.
