    Ok... here it is.
    Which of these 2 brands is better?

    1. Thermastar by Pella
    or
    2. American Craftsman by Anderson windows ?

    If it were Pella VS Anderson i would say Anderson...but its not. Its a cheaper version of Pella actually built by Pella or American Craftsman which is just merely owned by Anderson.....

    Opinions Anyone?

    Both brands have the (low-e)sp? coating and are Argon(sp)? filled....

    Not a clue here - these are real glass windows, or plastic insurance rock bouncers? Let those that toss the first stone see their house shatter. Someone said that; can't remember whom.

    I think both are cheaper versions of the original. I had some problems with Anderson (the original) a while back but have never used Pella. I guess it's like Fords and Chevys, which ine is the best?

    Whichever one costs less is the most important detail there. Next, which one comes with a free hat? Really; just how good is customer service with each company and who has the better package when your wallet comes to bat?
