A Reputation Built on Honesty and Integrity

I have completed two out of a three year window replacement project on my house. I opted for Restorations windows based on positive reviews online. All I can say is those reviews were 100% correct. These are very high-quality windows.
Installed 30 Restorations replacement windows and 2 sliding glass doors in Raleigh,NC. No more drafts and lower hvac costs . Real quality. Check with experts who engineer glass, like I did. They look great and visitors actually notice and comment.
Just had Sunrise Restorations double-hung windows installed in our home after extensive research. Sunrise has the best warranty in the business (lifetime, non-prorated), these windows are highly efficient (check their website for details), the windows look great, and there are lots of color options. Sunrise Restorations windows belong near or at the top of any list of high-quality replacement windows. Highly recommended.
