United Windows vs Pella

United Windows vs Pella - while United is aregional vinyl window manufacturer, Pella is nationwide and isn't limited to just vinyl models.

Bottom Line: United is going to be much more geared toward consumers looking for an entry level type vinyl window at a reasonable price point. Pella is going to be quite a bit more in terms of cost, although their Encompass series might be a good comparison in terms of price to some of United's premium series. Pella enjoys the much better reputation I would say over United.

Company Information

United is based in Springfield, New Jersey and has been making windows and doors in some fashion or another since 1951. They aren't super well known outside of the states in which they sell their windows - and they tend to price out their products at an entry level price point. They are a regional manufacturer.

Pella is certainly not a regional manufacturer like United. In fact, they are one of the two most well known brands in the United States - the other being Andersen Windows. They have been in the business for over 100 years and are based in Pella, Iowa. They enjoy a very solid reputation in the industry for making high end wood clad windows. Pella Windows Reviews

Pella Windows Cost are some of the most expensive on the market - at least for their Impervia and wood-clad options. Pella vinyl windows tend to be much more in that mid range price point, although a portion of that cost is due to the Pella name more than to its inherent quality - fyi.
