Ply Gem sells a whole host of vinyl, wood and aluminum clad windows and doors. The company is best known for vinyl replacement windows. They sell their window/doors to large developers and builders, through the Big Box stores, as well as through a large network of local window companies. The company has a presence in all 50 states within the United States.

Ply Gem Pro #1 :: Reliable Brand

Ply Gem is owned by a large corporation, which means they are not going to go out of business anytime soon. This means that when you purchase your windows/doors, you are not in any risk of not being able to have your warranty issues handled down the road. (I personally don't put much stock in warranties, but they should still be considered for replacement windows.) All in all, this is a pretty nice plus in my book.

Pros And Cons Of Ply Gem Windows :: Marketing

Confusing Product Line - Ply Gem offers so many series (which are even divided up by region) that it can be confusing whether or not you are purchasing a quality product or not.

The issue for me is that, like it or not, there are lots of shady sales people in this industry.
