CARY, N.C. -- Ply Gem Windows, a leading manufacturer of window and door products, expanded the aluminum-clad Ply Gem Windows Mira Premium Series line to include custom, made to order sizes. Ideal for new construction, remodeling, and retrofit projects that include full-frame removal, custom sizing is now available on double hung, picture windows, transoms, casement, awning, and patio door styles, as well as a wide variety of architectural shapes. Bay, bow and radius operable casement styles are also available in custom sizes through special order.
"With custom sizing, builders and contractors can now find the perfect fit for every project, every job, and every unique window opening, giving true design flexibility," said Chris Pickering, vice president, marketing, Ply Gem Windows. "Custom sizing is especially advantageous for whole-home renovation jobs, creating a full frame, precise fit installation that is integral to the exterior wall. It's an option that provides improved structural performance over more typical 'pocket' replacement windows and allows for more design enhancements."
All Ply Gem Windows Mira Premium Series custom sized units achieve the same performance levels as standard sized units and are manufactured with the same features including a dent-resistant extruded aluminum exterior and a traditional, stain-grade wood interior. All wood parts are treated to prevent infiltration of water, fungus and insects, therefore increasing the integrity of the windows. The windows utilize extruded aluminum rather than rolled aluminum to resist against dings and dents, and an AAMA (American Architectural Manufacturers Association) 2604 finish provides a brilliant color palette with superior resistance to chalking and fading.
"The craftsmanship, design options and ease of installation of the Ply Gem Windows Mira Premium Series have made this product line preferred among custom home builders, architects, and homeowners desiring premium aesthetics at a value price. Through this expansion, we can now offer these same benefits to remodelers, renovators, and window dealers, while giving homeowners a superior performing product," said Pickering.
Select styles meet ENERGY STAR® guidelines in all climate zones and come standard with Low-E glass and argon-gas fill for increased energy efficiency. Some units may also be eligible for LEED for Homes credits. Additionally, many Ply Gem Windows and patio doors are National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) Research Center Green Approved. Ply Gem is a member of NAHB.
The Ply Gem Windows Mira Premium Series is available in eight exterior colors and multiple grille options.
