Window Facts – Answers to your FAQ’s

Q: What product lines does Sunroc sell?
A: Sunroc Building Materials maintains strong working relationships with several of the nation’s leading window manufacturers, including Jeld-Wen, Milgard and Cascade. We pride ourselves on our ability to deliver any window a customer orders.

Q: What is the price difference between wood/clad windows and vinyl windows?
A: Wood/clad windows are roughly two to three times the cost of vinyl windows.

Q: What are the benefits of purchasing wood/clad windows over vinyl windows?
A: The difference between these two materials is based on what your project’s needs. Generally, vinyl windows serve most project needs. Wood/clad windows have additional options and can be more customizable, such as for a specific architectural look or design.

Q: Can I get vinyl windows in colors beyond the standard white, tan or taupe?
A: Vinyl frame material is typically available in solid white, tan or taupe. Most manufacturers offer an upgrade option for multiple “painted exterior” colors available on most windows. There is typically an additional cost and longer lead-time required for the painted exterior upgrade.

Q: Does Sunroc Building Materials install windows?
A: Currently, Sunroc Building Materials does not install windows. However, we can help connect you with a qualified third-party qualified installer.

Q: How long does it take to get my windows once ordered?
A: Lead-time depends on the manufacturer, time of year and type of windows ordered. For planning purposes, reference these general timeframes:

  • Vinyl: 2 weeks
  • Wood/clad: 3-4 weeks
  • Fiberglass: 3-4 weeks

Please allow additional time for special or custom orders.

Q: Does Sunroc have windows available in stock?
A: We do not have any windows in stock. All windows orders, including single window orders, are custom made for that project. All window manufacturers build windows per order and do not stock windows.

Q: Can you rush a window or window order for me?
A: Some window manufacturers will put a rush on an order for an additional fee (on average, about 20 percent). Please note that this usually only speeds up delivery by a few days. Window manufacturers have decreased overall lead times for all customers over the past few years by eliminating these types of rush orders.

Q: Do you sell ENERGY STAR or energy-efficient windows?
A: Yes, all of the window products we carry are capable of achieving the new ENERGY STAR standard (U-Factor = .30 or better—the lower the U-Factor, the better). In order to achieve this U-Factor or lower, some upgrades on the standard window are required. Standard windows with no upgrade typically carry a U-Factor = .35 or better.
