Ply Gem Windows Prices
Ply Gem windows prices are in the mid range and will range from $300 to $450 installed for their Premium Series. Ply Gem has acquired a number of window companies over the years and then relabeled them with their own brand (Alenco, Certainteed, Great Lakes, M&W, Patriot). This is one reason why it is confusing for consumers to understand exactly which window they are purchasing (unless you ask). Many contractors think the best Ply Gem line by Great Lakes would be at the top of the Ply Gem quality list, while the CertainTeeds would be at the bottom. Any credible window dealer should have the specifics of the actual line you are purchasing. Ply Gem gets decent marks and falls in as a second tier manufacturer below the top level vinyl companies - Soft-Lite, Sunrise, Okna, HiMark and Gorell.
Ply Gem Contractor Window Costs
The Ply Gem Contractor Series is an entry level window that lacks the design, engineering and features that most homeowners should be looking for in a quality window. Ply Gem sells a lot of these windows, but typically to builders and contractors who are developing large residential or commercial properties. This window should really be reserved for homeowners interested in rental properties or flipping houses. This low end option is comparable to the equivalent Jeld Wen option.

Ply Gem Pro Windows Prices
The Ply Gem Pro is the company's mid grade vinyl window and includes some nice upgrades from their Contractor line. This window was originally the Grandview 4000 from Great Lakes and is a cellular PVC that can be painted. The window uses a stainless steel spacer and carries a 25 year transferrable warranty, although it doesn't include a glass breakage provision.

Ply Gem Pro 200 Cost Bid
Hello, I stumbled on your website while trying to educate myself on vinyl replacement windows and found it very useful.
[Site Editor's Answer]
Hi Matt, thanks for the question. So that's a pretty solid bid on the Ply Gem Pro 200/700 series for 31 windows and 3 sliding glass doors. I'd put the Ply Gem Pro on par with a Milgard Tuscany window. The Anlin products are better, but at $30K that's tough to justify. I think that if you've done your homework on the Ply Gem dealer and they have good reviiews and reputation, then this is a good path to pursue.
Ply Gem Pro Series Cost
I'm replacing 8 windows and have two quotes on different windows:
Carla-Anne, those bids are each quite solid. I think I'd suggest the Ply Gem Pro and save the $2000.

Ply Gem Premium Windows Pricing
The Ply Gem Premium has several difference between itself and the Pro model. The Premium is available as a double hung, while the Pro is available only as a single hung. The Premium series is also available in more color options. The Premium series were originally the Grandview 5000 Series from Great Lakes and comes with a lifetime warranty, but again no glass breakage.
Plygem 1100 Window Prices
Ply Gem 1100 Series Windows
Hi Tom, I just got ply gem 1100 series windows installed and there are several that are leaking after a rain. Do you have any ideas about why they would be leaking? The builder mentioned something about weep holes. Thanks.
Mardy, your windows should not be leaking on the inside, that's for sure! If there are, there were improperly installed (or the windows are defective). You should take photos when it rains next and send them to the builder.
Plygem 4800 Window Prices
Ply Gem 4800 Series windows
Hi Tom, we are builyding a house in the Houston area, and we have a choice between the Ply Gem 4800 thermally broken aluminum window or the Andersen 100 Fibrex window. Do you any insights on these? Obviously Andersen is quite well known, but can't find much data on the 4800's.
[Site Editor's Answer]
Bob, I don't know about the Ply Gem 4800 window, I wish I did. The Andersen 100 series is a solid window, but obviously very different than a thermally broken aluminum window. I will say this, if you are considering a thermally broken aluminum window, you might want to take a look at the Don Young 8200 series. This is one of the best thermally broken aluminum windows on the market and a viable option for Houston.
Instead of the Andersen 100, I would look at Sunrise, Okna and NT for the Houston area in terms of vinyl/hybrid. These would be my picks over the Andersen 100 series. All will be available in Houston from local dealers.
Plygem 5100 Window Prices
Plygem 5100 Price Quote
Hi Tom, I got a quote for 4 windows 40/60 split in the Plygem 5100. Is $4800. with install a bit high?
Lisa, yes at first glance that sounds too high for the Plygem 5100 and install. This is where more leads really do help--give you something to compare it to price wise. Plygem is a decent company but there are better options out there. Try to google "soft-lite windows in [your hometown and state]." Also check for local companies who may sell Okna, Sunrise, Polaris, Kensington, Vytex, and even Vinylmax. Go with their mid range or premium windows as a rule of thumb. Send me any bids you receive and I'm always happy to give you my two cents.
