Sunrise Windows Prices

Sunrise windows prices range from $350 to $800 fully installed. Sunrise manufactures 5 vinyl window models, one of which, the Restorations, is one of the best vinyl windows out there. They don't have huge distribution, nothing like a Simonton Windows or Jeld Wen, so this means there tends to be less competition and slightly higher prices (typically only one distributor in a single area).

Besides the Sunrise Essentials, the Sunrise stadard series and all the upgraded models are some of the nicest looking vinyl windows on the market. They all use the same frame, which is more narrow when compared with other top vinyl windows. For instance, compared to the Okna casement, the Sunrise casement is 1/4" less on each side from the inside. From the outside, it's even more drastic, perhaps 3/4" difference on all side. The Sunrise window with the wood grain interior looks very much like wood windows.

On the plus side, good distributors will typically provide better customer service and be around for longer, which is certainly helpful if you have an issue with the window. As a rule of thumb, Sunrise models have higher VT ratings (the amount of visible light that enters a window) than other comparable manufacturers, which is generally considered a nice feature. This is definitely one of the premier vinyl window companies out there and with the exception of the Essentials Series, all of their models should provide excellent window ratings and long term value - assuming professional installation.

Sunrise Windows Warranty

Sunrise offers one of the better vinyl window warranties in the business. It is a Lifetime warranty on the workmanship, materials, insulated glass, components and hardware (10 years on exterior painted colors). The warranty is transferable to a second owner, although the new owner must notify the company in writing and pay a $50 transfer fee.

The warranty does not cover the labor or installation portion of repairs or replacements, which is pretty standard in the industry. All in all, the Sunrise window warranty is very solid, one of the better warranties in the industry.

Sunrise Standard Windows Cost

Hey John, mind taking a look at the estimate we got from Leap Windows? They use Sunrise standard.

Sunrise Windows

12 double hungs


Ry - Homeowner - August, 2021

Website Editor's Answer

Ry, not exactly cheap, but that's a very good product and Leap seems to get very good reviews. I would probably look for two more bids just to know what other options and cost quotes are out there. If you get a cheaper bid, you can take that back to the sales rep who gave you the bid and ask him to match it. Sometimes this pays off and other times it doesn't but it never hurts to ask.

Here is my list of windows. [List Redacted -- contact us directly John for our good and great windows list.]

Sunrise Classic Prices

Hello Jim - I've been popping into your site here and there for windows research... I am hoping you could take a look at the attached quote for a local installer I am considering.

Seems quite cheap based on my other estimates... I want to make sure this is a good Sunrise product as they have several offerings and can get confusing! My sales rep assures me it's not the "Essentials" line which is the bottom offering from Sunrise?

1 bay window and 4 casements for $6400.

Ari - Homeowner - May, 2021

Website Editor's Answer

Hi, so this looks generally about what I would expect from Sunrise. It's a bizarre quote as it's hard to tell the unit prices, but for the windows and the bay window, this seems like a pretty fair bid to me. The bid appears to be for the Sunrise line, sometimes called the Classic, which is quite a good window.

Editor Jim R. - May, 2021

Ari's Reponse

Thank you Jim! $4,000 for a Sunrise bay is excellent relative to the other quotes I have been receiving in my area for a bay window, some of which were even lower end from Sunrise. So assuming this is the "Classic", is that indeed ABOVE the Essentials line? And where does it stand in the overall Sunrise product offering, I wish the quote did have the model/class description or something,

Ari - Homeowner - May, 2021

Website Editor's Answer

Yes, the Sunrise is above the Essentials. The Sunrise frame serves as the same frame for all of their top tier windows. The Verde and Restorations have several nice upgrades from the Sunrise "Classic." You can check out all of the differences here:

I'm in Northern Virginia and have 2 different quotes on 18 replacement windows that I thought I'd share with you.

Thanks in advance.

Sunrise Restorations vs. Okna 700

I've been doing some more online research. Your website mentions different grades of Sunrise windows, but when I go to Sunrise website, they don't differentiate between different models. Rather they list the different options for glass, etc. Does the Vanguard model still exist? Since my house is 31 years old and the build quality is okay, not great, I'm thinking full frame replacements are the wiser choice to fix any rotting wood and improve insulation.

Sunrise has a separate Restorations Windows website. How would the Okna 700 compare to Sunrise Vanguard and Sunrise Restorations casements? Are Restorations windows worth the premium? Or is the Vanguard just as good? What would you say are the key differences between the two?

I live in central NJ and identified an installer for Okna, who is the only one that covers my area. There's another Okna installer who does other areas of central and northern NJ, but he told me that other dealer is the only one who services my area for Okna. I have two dealer options for Sunrise, which is good because I want to get at least three quotes (1 Okna, 2 Sunrise) to compare for this window project I'll do this June.

I have 22 casements - 5 small, 15 medium and 2 large - plus two large windows that are flanked by a pair of casements. Would you think it advisable to order different grades of windows for different locations on the house? For example, windows on the northern side aren't exposed to sun should have good U-factor so heat doesn't escape, but SHGC isn't as important since they aren't exposed to the sun. Whereas the windows on the east, south and west sides that are exposed to full sun need both low U and low SHGC.

Or is it better to simply get the same window options across the entire set, regardless of where the window is located? I'm thinking why pay for something you don't need? I have one casement in the garage that can just be the standard type casement without any special options.

Thanks in advance for sharing your expertise.

Website Editor's Answer

Gus, the Sunrise offers are somewhat confusing. Only certain dealers will offer these “upgraded” models, but really they are just the standard Surnise with some add on features. So the Sunrise Vanguard window is 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 Restorations is reinforced with fibercore on both the meeting rail and the vertical sash, the Restorations features 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.

The Okna 700 and Restorations are two of the very best. Very close in quality and craftsmanship. I’d give the edge to the Okna in terms of performance. The Vanguard is a very close third.

Good to compare the Sunrise dealers and prices to see how close they are to one another.

I would also get a bid from an Ideal window dealer. Ideal is NJ based and does sort of the same thing: often their dealers sell a Majestic or Platinum 3000, which is not on their website. Both of these windows are very good and might be cheaper than either the Sunrise or the Okna. I would rate them maybe just under Sunrise and Okna, but they can provide some nice value for your dollar.

You can play around with glass packages depending on location, but I might stick with the recommendations of the dealers themselves as they deal with your climate and location changes all the time. It depends on how involved and precise you really want to go.

Editor Jim R. - January, 2021

Gus's Response

One of the Sunrise dealers I reached out to said he no longer carries Restoration, rather he now installs Sunrise V Class windows instead. He said there is zero difference between the Restorations and Vclass on Casements. The reason they no longer offer Restorations is because there is a company that demanded exclusive rights for Restorations line in NJ. So Sunrise gave them the Vclass line which is identical in Casements but a little different with double-hungs. Pricing should be similar.

Have you heard about Sunrise V Class? Would you agree it’s the same window from a casement perspective?

This installer said one of the main advantages they offer with full frame is that they have a full shop and pre-make their own interior trim kits to match the window sizes. I’d even have the option of having them pre-painted by them, which is what I’d want. He said 65% of their installs are full frame. That’s good to hear.

Sunrise Windows vs. Paradigm 8300

Hi Tim, we are building a house in upstate New York and l am looking at a few window brands including Pella 250, Paradigm 8300 and Sunrise. I don't think I am sold on Pella even though they are about 3K less than Paradigm which is the brand our builder usually buys. I really do like the Sunrise though and they have a promotion (Free glass n2210a) which means they are only $500 more for the whole window package compared to Paradigm.

From what I have read they are a higher end window and don't have the pocket sill which I like. The dealer didn't seem as educated as Paradigm's which was a bit unsettling but was wondering what the big difference was between them and which one you recommend going with?

Lauren - Homeowner - from December, 2020

Website Editor's Answer

Lauren, for me there is not much question in this three way bout. The Sunrise is the much better window over the Pella 250 and the Paradigm 8300 series. It's the better made window that will deliver better energy efficiency and should hold up for longer than either of the other two.

The Paradigm and Pella options are not bad windows, they are simply not up to the Sunrise standard. The price upgrade to the Sunrise sounds like it's more than worth it. Sunrise is one of my top five brands in terms of quality and craftsmanship. You should be well served with this choice.

Sunrise Restorations vs. Provia Aspect

Hi Dane, we are considering the following and would like to get your thoughts?

Provia Aspect vs. Sunrise Restorations

We are replacing 28 windows and 2 sliders so we want to make sure we are making the right choice. Many thanks.

Kimberly - Homeowner - December, 2020

Website Editor's Answer

Kimberly, this is an easy one -- the Sunrise Restorations is the much better window. The ProVia Aspect is the company more mid range window, while the Sunrise Restorations is Sunrise's premium window and one of my favorites. A truly top tier vinyl/fiberglass window!

Editor Jim R. - December, 2020

Kimberly's Answer

Thank you so much! We are also now considering the Okna 500 vs Sunrise Restorations for windows and doors. The Okna is about $4700 more. What are you thoughts?

Kimberly - Homeowner - December, 2020

Website Editor's Answer

Kimberly, these two windows are pretty comparable. So for me the Sunrise Restorations at $4700 less than the Okna 500 is the clear winner.

Sunrise vs. Anlin Del Mar

First, I'd like to say that your site has helped us tremendously throughout our replacement window research. We've had 15+ companies come out and quote pricing, and we have finally narrowed it down to the two options we feel are the best quality and most efficient for the money.

We would very much appreciate your opinion on our following two options for replacing our 23 windows. Most of our windows are 3'x6' single hung or pictures, plus two large 6'x6' picture windows plus a 6'x3' half circle over one of those.

1) Anlin Del Mar window w/Infinite EZ Clean glass, sound package, and heavy duty extruded screens


2) Sunrise window with Omega12 glass and fully foamed frame

The Anlin Del Mar cost is $3,500 more than the Sunrise, and would be installed by a well-known company who has a 4.9 star rating on google from 87 people and 5 stars on Angie's List from 161 reviews; they are local radio advertisers. The Sunrise installation company is much smaller, doesn't advertise, and has 3 google and 6 Angie's List reviews, all of which are 5 stars.

We have felt from the start that the Anlin Del Mar is an excellent product, but the pricing was quite high. After finding a few more installers and then finding the Sunrise window, we were able to negotiate the price way down on the Del Mar. In the end it's still $3,500, and we just aren't certain the cost is worth it. We just purchased our home a year ago, and do hope/plan to be here long-term (if these repair costs don't bankrupt us...ha!).

As a nice little plot twist, perhaps I should mention that the Sunrise installer also offers the NT Presidential series window for $2,200 less than the Sunrise. Ratings and quality-wise, however, we feel it's best to go with a better window...we've heard NT has had some quality and failure issues and is in the process of moving their manufacturing to another location...?

Thank you in advance for your time and advice, it is greatly appreciated.

Brian - Homeowner - October, 2019

Website Editor's Answer

Wow, 15 bids is a lot of bids, good on you for that. Two excellent options that are actually pretty close in price if the cost is distributed amongst the 23 windows.

I like the Sunrise window quite a bit. This is the way I would lean because of the cost. I would be reticent about the small numbers of reviews, but since they are all five stars I’d combine that with the impression I got from them when they came out. I’d want to talk with someone who they did a job for — And find out how long they’ve been in business.

The other thing I would do is go back to the Anlin dealer and tell them that because they came in $3500 higher, you’re going to go with the Sunrise dealer...except that you know they have an excellent product and if they could get close to the Sunrise price, you’d go with them. Worth a shot to see where his floor price is.

Sunrise Patio Doors vs. Pella 350 Series

Having trouble deciding between the Pella 350 or Sunrise patio doors. Like the look and functionality of the Pella but the Sunrise warranty is much better. Any thoughts?

Jeff - Homeowner - February 20, 2017

Website Editor's Answer

Jeff, the Sunrise patio doors, just as with the vinyl windows, are going to be much better than the Pella 350 patio door. Bella is a good wood clad window manufacturer, but they still can't touch the quality, craftsmanship, or energy efficiency of the top tier vinyl window and patio door manufacturers. I would put Sunrise in the excellent category.

Sunrise Window Costs vs Okna 700 Series

I am looking to replace 22 double hunts with casements. I have a quote for $14,225 for Sunrise Restorations and $17,000 for Okna 700. I like the Okna a little better, but is it worth that much more money? Also, I got a quote for $12,000 for the 700, but contractor got poor reviews on Checkbook. I might be able to get the Okna contractor with the $17,000 bid down. How much more should I be willing to pay for the 700? Thanks for your great forum.

Samuel - Homeowner - July 14, 2016

Website Editor's Answer

Samuel, I really like the Sunrise Restorations and the Okna 700 casements. I think they're comparable windows, so I have to say that I'd go with the Sunrise option, unless the $2775 is worth it to you. I would avoid going with a contractor who gets bad reviews, you'll pay for it in the long run.

I like the idea of going back to the Okna rep and saying that you really want to go with him, but that the bid you got on the Restorations in $14K, and asking what he can do to get that price more in line with the Sunrise bid. Show him that you are on board with him...if he can work with you a little on the price. You might be surprised what he will do for the job. Even if he can't, you'll feel better for asking!

Sunrise Windows vs Polaris

Good afternoon, Jim and John I am looking for a reliable distributor to purchase and installed a Polaris replacement window unit. I initially found out about this product from the owner of Universal Windows Direct in central NJ. Unfortunately, when he responded to me via email, he was extremely rude and very unprofessional. Also, I don't appreciate be told "it is only money". Sorry if I aired my dirty laundry, since installation is important I need to find a company is reliable. Thank you in advance for taking my question.

Tricia - Homeowner - April 25, 2016

Website Editor's Answer

Tricia, I don't know who the Polaris rep is in your area, besides Universal Windows Direct, but I would suggest you call up Polaris headquarters, tell them you are interested in buying their windows, and see who else services your area. Get a bid from them, I would suggest also trying to see if Okna Windows and Sunrise have reps in your area and getting a free bid from them as well for comparison.

It sounds like you were trying to negotiate price, which I agree with you, it's not only money -- it's your hard earned money! Trying to get the best price on the windows and installation is both tough and necessary, most sales people would rather make more money than less money, it's your job to get them to a lower dollar amount. Good on you for trying!
