Sunrise Restorations Windows Reviews

The Sunrise Restorations window is one of the highest rated vinyl windows currently available in the United States. The Restorations model has all of the same upgrades that come on the Sunrise Verde and Vanguard window, including the fibercore sash reinforcement, foam filled frame, MaxEdge Spacer and high transparency screen. The Restorations includes a lock that is built into the tilt latch release. This sash lock, along with a nice narrow frame, makes the window one of the best looking vinyl windows around.

The Restorations models includes tons of options for consumers, including a ton of exterior colors, several interior color options, and 6 interior wood grain laminates. The laminates mimic the look of real wood, without all of the downsides that real wood brings with it. The company offers some very nice metal hardware upgrades, as well as a number of glass packages, screen options, and interior grids.

While the Restorations won't deliver quite the same performance ratings as the Okna 800 Envirostar, it is still a top contender and one that consumers should seriously consider if there is a dealer in their area.

Sunrise Restorations Ratings

The Sunrise Restorations, with the Cold Protector Extreme AR glass package, should deliver a 0.22 U-factor, 0.19, .04 air infiltration, and 0.44 VT. Upgrading to the Ultra KR90 glass package will deliver a 0.19 U-factor, 0.20, .03 air infiltration, and 0.37 VT.

These are excellent performance numbers, some of the very best in the entire window industry. As we said before, the only other window that tops the Restorations (in an apples to apples comparison) is the Okna 800 window.

Sunrise Restorations Warranty

The Sunrise Restorations comes with a Lifetime warranty that covers the frame, sash, IGU, hardware, balances, and screens. Vinyl frame paint colors and finishes come with a 20 year warranty provision against peeling, cracking and blistering, along with a 10 year provision on excessive fading.

The Sunrise Restorations warranty is transferrable to a subsequent owner - the new owner must notify the company in writing of the transfer and must pay the $50 transfer fee to Sunrise (pretty typical requirements in the industry). The Sunrise warranty is pretty straight forward and is very solid. There are limitations and exclusions that apply so make sure you read the document in full prior to purchase.

Sunrise Restorations Series vs Harvey Majesty

We've gotten several quotes to replace a bow window using Renewal by Anderson, Harvey Majesty and two quotes from local Sunrise dealers. We prefer the Sunrise, but each dealer 'specializes' in a different Sunrise product. One sells Restorations exclusively and the other sells Sunrise Standard and Essentials. We'd be willing to pay more for the Restorations, but can't find a side-by-side comparison from Sunrise on their different product lines. We also can't tell from the quotes how much is for the product and how much is for installation. Trying to compare prices is like apples to oranges.

So I appeal to you for help. Can you send me the manufacturer's price sheet for both the Sunrise Restorations and the Sunrise Standard? Thanks very much for your help. Our window measures approximately 112' x 55". Here are the specs we're interested in.

Four section bow window (sections one and four to be Casements), Brazilian Pecan vinyl woodgrain interior and Painters White exterior, Omega-12 glass (double pane; argon filled), Ultra-core polyurethane insulation in sash and master frame, Double insulated seat, Brazilian Pecan laminated Head, Seat, and Jambs, OptiView Screens, 2 7/8" Colonial Madera trim, and Internal single prairie Victorian V-Groove etching.

We've been using your website for our research and find it to be extremely helpful! Thanks for all the good brand comparisons.

Jim, I don't have a price sheet for Sunrise per se, but feel free to send me your quotes and I'll do my best to give you an unbiased opinion on how the price stacks up. Just out of curiously, how did the Sunrise window costs compare with the Harvey and Renewal bids.

Sunrise Restorations Windows vs Okna 700 Series

I am buying 40 replacement casements. 36 x 64. I am down to Okna 700 Deluxe or Sunrise Restorations. I have never seen them side by side, which is the thinner frame/look? Which is stronger (I live near ocean/VA Beach)? Okna's $22k, Sunrise $25K. Which should I get?

Rich, the Sunrise Restorations has one of the thinner frames out there on a top tier vinyl window and alot of consumers really like this. I happen to like the overall look of the Oknas just a bit better. Both Sunrise and Okna windows are great brands, but I would lean towards the Oknas myself. I feel like they get the edge in terms of construction and performance. Once they are in, you won't notice the slightly thicker frame, unless this is really important to you. In that case, go with the Restorations. Either way, you are getting a fantastic window at what looks to be a very competitive price.
