Our Happy Clients

A company that honors their warranty! I had their windows since 1996 and the company still honors my warranty. Great windows. Great company. Thank you Sunrise!

Chicago, IL

Installed 30 replacement windows and 2 sliding glass doors in Raleigh, NC. No leaks, no condensation, nearly perfect inside and out. Some windows were larger than 5x5 and still no problems. No more drafts and lower hvac costs. Real quality. Check with experts who engineer glass, as I did. They look great and visitors actually notice and comment. Just a happy customer. Nice job guys!

Raleigh, NC

I purchased Sunrise Windows last year for a house I was flipping. I believe the windows were a big reason the house sold for nearly 100% of the asking price. This is a great company. I would recommend this company's products to anyone.

Toledo, OH

I had Sunrise Windows installed in my home in 2000. We started noticing some of the wood lament on the windows started peeling. Sixteen years later, Sunrise honored their warranty and replaced every window. This is a stand-up company.

Temperance, MI

I had all my windows and both doors replaced at the same time to my older (built in 1958) home by the folks at Sunrise and am very satisfied with the selection, service and installation! I’d recommend Sunrise to anyone renovating their older home.

I replaced 32 windows in my home with your windows, they are fantastic!! For the last 10 years have been putting in windows on remodels with a contractor friend of mine, and my Sunrise Windows are the best we've done. They lowered my energy bills both summer and winter and the style window I picked worked out perfectly with the window trim/molding that we put in. They look so nice and work flawlessly so far (6 yrs).
