Sunrise Vanguard or Restorations Windows - Reviews?

#1 Post by RichardDFW » Sun Apr 09, 2017 6:40 pm

Looking at Sunrise Vanguard windows and Restorations in DFW.

5 Picture Windows 42X72
1 Casement 42X72
2 Quarter Rounds 42X42
1 Slider 36X18
1 Double Casement 28.5X47 (2 Windows)
2 Single Hungs 36X70

13 windows total. They both come with wood veneer inside and tan exterior. Both with Omega 12 Glass with LoW-E, Optview Screen and Noise Reduction Glass (NRG). We live near an airport so noise is a big issue with us.

Quotes are $14.1K for the Vanguard and $16K for the Restorations(Cash Price). Additionally we also got a quote from Burris for $10.8K, Marvin Infinity & Integrity $25.2K, and RBA North of $35K (Crazy)

We’ve compared the Vanguard and Restorations windows side by side, looked at some reviews and they are virtually identical. We prefer the sales staff and installers from Vanguard.

Is this a reasonable price for this window? Are there any comparable companies we should be looking at? Soft-Lite?

Thanks for your input.

I should have added that all the windows, except the quarter rounds, slider, and single hungs were required to be Tempered Glass due code requirements.

Thanks

Pricing is quite reasonable. While there are slight differences between the Vanguard and Resotrations lines, most of your windows will be the exact same product (casements, picture windows, quarter rounds). If you’re more comfortable with the Vanguard dealer, I’d trust your gut feeling and go with them.

I agree with Randy. The Vanguard sounds like a good fit. That's going to be a very sharp looking window project with that combination. The current version 2.0 on Sunrise's casements, awnings, and picture windows is very nice. Sexy lines, lots of glass, and a built nicely. You will have a nice warranty on the product too.

Another vote of confidence here. Good product. If the installer that you prefer happens to also be a little cheaper, that's a win :D
