Product Highlights

Ply Gem Windows 4880 Patio Door The Ply Gem Windows 4880 thermally insulated patio door combines affordability with enhanced thermal protection, impact performance and automation technology, making it easy for customers to achieve expansive views and unrestricted access from the indoors to outdoors. The patio door is available in two-, three- and four-panel sliding and pocket configurations and features thermally insulated construction along with 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 recesses into the wall for unrestricted access between indoors and outdoors. New for 2017, the Ply Gem 4880 patio door can be upgraded with an automated operating system that allows homeowners to control it from anywhere, anytime — either with the included remote or with the DreamView app for iOS devices and smart phones.

Ply Gem Windows Premium Series 960 Patio Door – Ply Gem Windows’ Premium Series 960 Patio Door is a smart solution for any replacement and remodeling project. This custom, top-of-the-line hinged inswing and outswing vinyl patio door provides performance, style and lasting beauty. A dual wall flush fin 4-13/16" frame depth offers enhanced strength, while low-maintenance fusion welded corners ensure durability and weather-tight performance. The Ply Gem Windows Premium Series 960 Patio Door creates a larger viewing area to let in more natural light.

Ply Gem Windows West Pro 200/700 – Maximizing daylight, panoramic views and building performance, Ply Gem’s vinyl West Pro 200/700 Series integral mull system allows the construction of large, custom operating and fixed unit combinations with similar performance of commercial units, at a fraction of the cost. With this new integral mull system, window combinations up to 72” x 96” can be installed, while still achieving an LC40 performance level.

Simonton Windows DaylightMax and Madeira – Available for replace and remodel projects in the western United States, the Simonton DaylightMax™ series vinyl windows have less frame and more glass than typical replacement windows. This unique narrow frame is designed to enhance viewing space, while providing up to 40 percent more natural daylight than wide-frame windows. The Simonton Madeira™ collection of replacement windows and doors is the ideal choice for traditional architectural styles. A 3-¼” classic frame design offers the proportion of wood windows in a low maintenance vinyl option.

Ply Gem Steel Siding Collection – The Ply Gem Steel Siding Collection – a new addition to Ply Gem’s industry-leading portfolio – 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 weather conditions, Ply Gem’s Steel Siding Collection is ideal for residential or light commercial projects across North America. The premium product line is also made of recycled material, is recyclable and is fire-resistant.
