Joyce Windows Reviews

Joyce windows took over Graef, a few years ago and are based out of Berea Ohio. They make a decent vinyl window, I would say it is a solid mid grade manufacturer. I don’t think I have actually installed any Joyce windows per se, but have handled tons of jobs that used Graef windows and never had an issue with them, and that is after 10 years of them being installed in homes.

Zen Lotus Joyce vs. Zen Nirvana

I finally got an estimate from the Sunrise dealer which is $800 more than the Zen Nirvana Sunlite / Zen Lotus Joyce for 8 double hung windows with traditional/colonial grids (we also have a few more windows to replace which is in pipeline!).

Zen Nirvana Sunlite / Zen Lotus Joyce : $5420.00 (U:0.27, SHGC: 0.21, AIR: 0.07)

Sunrise Restorations with Omega 12 GCU: $6230.00 (U:0.28, SHGC: 0.21, AIR: 0.03)

Another difference I could see is in the warranty – Zen says 100% “anything and everything covered for life of the window (transferable to any)” where as the Sunrise dealer offers 10 yr installation workmanship PLUS the manufacturer limited life time warranty (NO labor, transferable once)

Would you share your thoughts please ?

Thank you very much.

In terms of the window, the Sunrise Restorations is one of the best, the Zen Nirvana Sunlite / Zen Lotus Joyce are good windows. The cost difference would probably be worth it to me to jump to the Restorations.

Both warranties look good. I’ve never head of a branch giving a lifetime workmanship warranty on a window. That strikes me as untenable. If after twenty years they will replace any failing windows for free, go for it. But I doubt that’s what they will do.

Regional Manufacturer

Joyce is a good window that I’ve used on a handful of jobs. They had some grid alignment issues with their line that used the super spacer, although it could have been the spacer issue as opposed to the window. They are definitely more of a smaller, more regional manufacturer, which is certainly not bad considering all the issues the larger manufacturers have gone through over the last ten years. I would compare them to say an Amerimax or a Harvey. Overall, I think they make a solid product with pretty good performance numbers. I would recommend several of their products to clients given the right budget and circumstances.
