Window Prices for Other Brands, Types and Materials

The Ply Gem Windows

Ply Gem offers a large, impressive collection of window types and materials. Your selection includes aluminum-clad wood, vinyl, aluminum and wood composite windows in a range of new construction and replacement windows.

Ply Gem windows are available across the United States from building materials retailers and wholesalers.

New Construction vs Replacement Windows

Ply Gem makes both – a lot of both. There are at least 8 new construction lines and at least 5 replacement window lines.

Here’s the difference.

New construction windows have a nailing flange that is used to fasten the windows to the sheathing of the home. Obviously, this can only be done when there is no siding on the house – so during construction or when the siding is being replaced. New construction windows are installed from outside.

Replacement windows do not have a flange. Instead, the old window is removed, and the replacement window is installed into the rough opening. The work is typically done from inside the home.

Due to the flange, new construction windows cost $10-$25 more per window. However, when there is no old window to remove first, installation costs are lower per window.

Ply Gem Window Prices 2019/2020

As noted, Ply Gem makes a huge selection of windows, especially the many vinyl window lines, for sale in the United States and Canada.

We’ve broken down some of the most popular series in vinyl, aluminum and wood composite plus the only solid wood series by window type.

As you can see in the summary table of series and types below, not all window types are available in all series.

For example, the 200 Series vinyl windows are made in single-hung, sliding, picture and shape types. By contrast, the 550 Series vinyl includes casement and awning types.
