Okna 500 or Sunrise Restorations if both price is the same?

#1 Post by alibaba » Mon Nov 20, 2017 4:37 pm

Hi, I have been reading on this and other forums for the most part. We narrowed down to either Okna or Sunrise and have received quotes from both dealers. The quotes are for Okna 500 vs Sunrise Restorations on 28 windows (21 DH, 6 picture, 1 casement), including installation and capping. Interestingly, the quotes are pretty close in price, only $75 off.

With all the discounts (pay by cash and angie's list discount), the quotes are $17,075 for Okna 500; $17,000 for Sunrise Restorations. In term of comparison, Okna 500 and Restorations is apple to apple. Is that a true statement? Is 500 > Restorations or Restorations > 500?

Which windows would you pick?

Thank you.

Just want to add, we're not adding any options for the Okna 500 or Restorations, pretty much standard out.

Both are very good windows. Where are you located? What is the climate?

The Okna (assuming both being foam filled) will have a bit better thermal number and does have a better air infiltration number.

You can't go wrong with either as they are both solid performers.

No real loser alibaba, although as mentioned previously, the Okna option does have an edge in performance. On product only, that would be the winner, although I'd seriously consider the company installing as well. If you feel markedly better about one or the other that would be an important factor.
