ORLANDO, Fla.--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--Addressing the needs of its customers in today’s ever-changing residential and commercial construction environment, Ply Gem® (NYSE:PGEM), a leading manufacturer of building products, reveals today its line-up of products and solutions at the 2017 NAHB International Builders’ Show (IBS) in Orlando, Florida, January 10-12 (booth #W2501).
With a focus on design, functionality, performance and comfort, Ply Gem is highlighting products and solutions for every customer, from entry-level to luxury to multi-family. The company’s entire portfolio — windows, patio doors, siding, roofing, stone veneer, designer accents, and fence and rail — are showcased in a newly designed booth at this year’s show.
Inspired by feedback from Ply Gem’s top home builder and remodeling customers, the new booth delivers an open layout with a professional barista, phone charging stations, product displays, and sitting areas open to all show attendees, making it possible to host on-site, sit-down meetings or simply take a break.

Robinette, chairman and CEO, Ply Gem Industries. “Our new booth design provides ample open space for industry professionals to network and discuss new innovations and ways of working together that can inspire creative solutions to today’s industry challenges. We are excited to kick off 2017 at this year’s show and look forward to a year of continued growth.”
Ply Gem Windows 4880 Patio Door – Combining enhanced thermal and impact performance with a new, automated opening feature, the Ply Gem Windows 4880 thermally insulated patio door makes it easy for builders, remodelers and homeowners to achieve expansive views and unrestricted transition from the indoors to outdoors without sacrificing comfort or performance. Available in two-, three- and four-panel sliding and pocket configurations, the door features thermally insulated construction and high-performance glazing packages. Sliding, multi-panel openings up to eight-feet high by 16-feet wide enhance the transitional living experience, while the pocket style fully recesses into the wall for complete unrestricted access between the indoors and outdoors. The Ply Gem 4880 patio door will soon be available with a new automated operating system that allows homeowners to control it either with the included remote or with their smart phones/home WiFi network. The product also meets or exceeds the new Florida Energy Code requirements and is available in impact-resistant configurations to meet ASTM Windborne Debris requirements.
Ply Gem Windows Two-Tone Vinyl Colors – With classic styling making a comeback in home design, Ply Gem Windows 1500 Brickmould Vinyl Collection two-tone co-extruded exterior colors with neutral white interiors enhance design flexibility for builders, remodelers and architects. Now available in beige, clay, dark bronze — and soon black — this window delivers stunning curb appeal with authentic exterior color palettes. Unlike more expensive painted or foil-wrapped color solutions, these low-maintenance, co-extruded exteriors are applied directly during the extrusion process creating a durable, high-performance product.
Ply Gem Steel Siding Collection – The Ply Gem Steel Siding Collection – a new addition to Ply Gem’s leading portfolio of high-performing, low-maintenance vinyl siding, windows, stone veneer, roofing, trim and accent products – offers one of the boldest palette of colors in its category, including dark blues, greens, grays, blacks and reds. An innovative coating and emboss woodgrain pattern deliver superior texture and color retention, without the extra maintenance that comes with painting or caulking year after year. Made from galvanized steel and designed to stand up to harsh winter weather conditions, Ply Gem’s Steel Siding Collection is ideal for new construction and home remodeling projects across North America. The premium product line is also made of recycled material, is recyclable and is fire-resistant.
Ply Gem Roofing Engineered Slate and Cedar – Ply Gem’s composite roofing products were developed to represent historic slate and cedar shake roofing for residential and commercial designs, without the worry of long-term performance, maintenance and the premium price point. In creating the roofing product lines, Ply Gem’s research and development team spent years testing composite formulations to develop a material that is fire-resistant, impact-resistant, fade-resistant, lightweight, easy to install and sustainable. In many critical performance categories — durability, ease of installation, water management and cost of ownership — Ply Gem Engineered Roofing outperforms wood and natural slate.
Simonton Patio Doors – At the intersection of where home security, high-design and ease-of-use converge, lies the vinyl Inovo™ Patio Door by Simonton Windows and Doors®. Following years of research among remodeling professionals and homeowners to identify what they wanted in a patio door, Inovo exceeds everyday requirements for performance, operation and design. New for 2017 are two premium options: a shoot bolt locking system for added security, and transoms and sidelites that allow in more natural light and enhanced views to the outdoors.
