You may find that there aren’t too many Sunrise windows reviews online. This is because their distribution tends to be very limited. They offer three main window lines, Essentials, Vangard and Restorations. These lines are often only sold to one company in each market so there is little to no competition.
Is this strategy beneficial to the customer? Well, maybe. The goal of a distribution strategy like this is to help dealers maintain their margins. A local dealer that makes a decent profit will be available to help the customer and they’re likely to be around for years to come which is also beneficial to the end user.
The downside is that you typically don’t get the best prices and if the local dealer in your area isn’t great you don’t have any other options to get that model of Sunrise windows.
We did also recently complete a post about Sunrise window complaints. Find it here for more info.
As we get moving on these we’ll be posting detailed Sunrise windows reviews of the following models:
One thing Sunrise windows have in common is they all use the upgraded block and tackle balance system. This mechanism is typically present in higher end windows and it’s the same basic mechanism that you’ll find in windows from Okna, Preservation, Revere, Thompson Creek and others.
The Sunrise windows also tend to have relatively high VT ratings meaning they let in more light than some other vinyl replacement windows. This is due to their thinner frame construction and it’s a feature that we really like.
As you’re considering Sunrise replacement windows please keep in mind our list of common window sales tactics. We hear from folks all the time that some Sunrise window dealers can be very pushy using several of these old fashioned tricks. Make sure you know what you’re getting into.
