I am presently replacing windows in my home and selected two brands--Window World 6000 Allside and Atrium 8700 series. Could you please tell me which of these brands are better quality?

There isn't much differenece between these 2 windows. Construction is similar but the Atrium does have aluminum reinforced sashes which is a marginal improvement but not worth a significant premium. As long as you get the Low E argon option with the Allside 6000 the thermal performance of both windows is similar. Since there isn't much difference between the windows I would pay more attention to the quality of the installer. With Window world it's a crap shoot since they use many differnet sub-contractors. You have no way of knowing if you'll get a good one or not. If your Atrium vendor uses their own in house installers then that might be a better option
