The Pro-Via Endure is pretty much the same window as the Thermalweld Plus.
How do people feel about the companies/products mentioned?

No its not. Two totally different windows.

Maybe I’m wrong, I thought they both based on the same extrusions. Looks like a nice window regardless.

I’m only familiar with the Polaris, might have to stop by Th e ProVia dealer to have a hands on look.

I won't speak for others, but I'd say that there can still be some pretty major differences in quality and performance even when the extrusion is the same. The extrusion is really just the baseline material, it still needs QC in assembly, glass selection, spacer, weatherstripping, hardware, foam (or lack thereof) and an array of other details. Kind of like entry doors that use the same slab, but still need finishing and construction of the finished unit which can be night and day... That said, I'd agree with Todd that both options are solid, both made by reputable manufacturers, and should have a similar look and performance in this case. The Provia is a third option worth considering, I'd not recommend the others.

They are built on the same extrusion?

Both options meaning what?

No, they are different extrusions.

My mistake Todd, I thought that was what you were alluding to. Your comment on them being the same is even more puzzling if that is not the case. I know that the Provia unit shares its extrusion with a handful of other products, I assumed that the Polaris model was one of them.

shbrowns, the two that I was referring to are the Polaris and Provia. I'd throw the Sunrise in as well, with all three being in the same ballpark for quality and performance.

Provia uses a Deceuninck extrusion whereas polaris does not. Bear in mind, there are a few variations of the Deceuninck design. I have seen at least 3 differemt versions myself, all being somewhat similar but definitely different.

That is what I was referring to. I mistakenly assumed that Polaris used it as well based on the comment about them being the "same".
