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.

Consumers should expect the Revere Berkshire Elite to run $450 to $700 per window fully installed. That's a big price range that will vary based on many factors, including the size of the window, the upgrades selected, and whether you need retrofit installation or full frame installation. The later installation type is considerably more expensive. Similarly priced windows include the Pella 250 Series Reviews and the ProVia Aeris window.

Revere Berkshire Elite Windows

Hi Jon, looks like the cost sheet doesn’t have Revere Berkshire Elite windows on it - so I guess I’m still wondering at what price point the Revere windows are worth it?

I did fill out the contractor leads form, and only got two hits (not three) - one from Sears Home Pro and one from Home Depot. I guess there isn’t a third…

Not very confident about any of this at this point, any suggestions?


Glenn - Homeowner - June, 2020

Website Editor's Answer

I would pass on Sears and Home Depot. Some of the dealers are good in certain areas and some are not.

So the RBE is really an Alside Mezzo window, a middle of the road vinyl window that should run $375 to $475 per normal sized window installed.

Did you check to see if any of the other window brands I suggested were available in your area?

Editor Jim R. - June, 2020

Berkshire Elite By WinUniverse Express

Jon, thanks for the quick reply. I received a bid from Window Nation and Window Universe and believe both bids are high for what's being offered so need a second opinion. Plus if you have other suggestions for companies to reach out to would be great as well.

33 windows in total.

Window Nation Grandview Series: $22.7K

WinUniverse Express Berkshire Elite: $23.8K

I've been researching but haven't gotten a bid on the Andersen 400 Series windows or a mid to higher mid quality Andersen composite window.....thoughts when comparing to attached quotes?

Mike - Homeowner - April, 2020

Website Editor's Answer

Mike, I think I personally would rather have the Grandview window in my home than the Berkshire Elite. I also know more about Window Nation and feel more comfortable recommending them over Window Universe Express, who I don't know anything about. So if this were my project, I'd go with the Window Nation Grandview quote myself. The bids may be a bit high, but not by much I don't think.

You could always check for the following brands and see if any local companies carry them near you. My favorite brands include Sunrise, Okna, Soft-Lite, Polaris, Kensington, Vytex, and Zen.

Berkshire Windows Reviews

Hi, I just got a quote from Window Universe for RBE for $595 per window with installation.

Is that much better than the Pella 350?

Do you know if Window Universe is reputable?

Thank You.

Rita - Homeowner - March, 2020

Website Editor's Answer

The Berkshire Elite window is probably equal in quality and construction to the Pella 350. I know very little about Window Universe so I can't really comment on them one way or the other. I'd probably go with the Pella 350 over the Revere Berkshire Elite, which is identical to an Alside Mezzo.

Revere Windows Bid

We are looking to replace 13 single hung original (1977) windows plus 6 large trapezoid shaped glass windows. We're in Austin, Texas. I was looking at the Revere Berkshire Elites for several of the benefits it offers but am concerned about the installer not being a proven, local company. Any thoughts? Better bang for buck (feature/performance wise) window recommendation?

Darla - Homeowner - January, 2020

Website Editor's Answer

Darla, the Revere Berkshire Elite is a solid mid range window that should serve you well with good, professional installation. However, it sounds like this last part maybe an issue. I definitely think it behooves you to get a few more bids to know what's out there.

In Texas, I typically recommend seeing if there is a Sunrise window dealer.

Zen windows sells a Soft-Lite window that is quite good. Zen dealers are independent so check on their reputation before going forward with the project.

NT Windows, either their Presidential, Executive, or Energy Masters.

Don Young sells a good aluminum window and a very decent vinyl window that is probably comparable to the Revere Berkshire Elite.

This is where I would start.

Berkshire Elite vs. Okna 500 DX

I have 20 windows and need to get all new windows. We have two bids from two well rated dealers in the area.

Okna 500DX Model: $11.7K (triple pane) $13.6K Triple Pane Windows Prices
Berkshire Elite: $11.9K (triple pane) $12.4k

Bob - Homeowner - January, 2020

Website Editor's Answer

Bob, your best bid there is the Okna 500DX windows at $11.7K.

Berkshire Elite Quote

I have three estimates for 22 double hungs:

22 PROTECH 177 - $14,300
22 Alside Mezzo - $11,250
22 Berkshire Elite -$9,591
Do you have any suggestions for me?

Thomas - Homeowner - November, 2018

Website Editor's Answer

Thomas, the Berkshire Elite is more or less the Alside Mezzo series. That's a very good price you were quoted on. I would probably opt for this of the three you have. It isn't the greatest window out there, but it's a decent mid range vinyl window. Assuming competent installation, it should serve you well.

If you want a higher end window (at a higher cost), email me back and I can make some suggestions of brands to look at. Make sure to include your location since not all manufacturers have distribution/reps in all areas.

Revere Berkshire Elite vs. Ideal Platinum 3000

How would you compare the Revere Berkshire Elite and the Ideal Platinum 3000 windows?

Debra - Homeowner - July, 2018

Website Editor's Answer

Debra, the Revere Berkshire Elite is a good mid range vinyl window. The Ideal Platinum 3000 window is at the lower end of the top tier vinyl window range. Basically, the Ideal Platinum window is the better of the two and the one that I would choose given the option. Cheers!

Editor Jim R. - July, 2018

Revere Berkshire Elite vs. North Star Windows

How would you compare the Berkshire Elite with the North Star brand of windows?

Kay - Homeowner - March, 2018

Website Editor's Answer

Kay, I would rate the Revere Berkshire Elite window ahead of the Northstar vinyl window. Better built and better performance data. Just make sure that whoever is doing the installation has good reviews and a good reputation.

Andy - Homeowner - May 19, 2016

Website Editor's Answer

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.

Editor Jim R. - May 19, 2016

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. Window Replacement Prices

Jan - Homeowner - March 5, 2017

Website Editor's Answer

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 " 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.
