Ply Gem Contractor Windows Reviews
The Ply Gem Contractor window is the entry-level vinyl replacement window that is typically reserved for lower end projects. Most contractors and industry insiders aren't going to recommend that consumers purchase the entry-level Ply Gem vinyl window. The reason is that the window is not going to offer the sort of long-term durability and value that most consumers should be looking for. The Ply Gem premium window, on the other hand, is one of our recommended mid range vinyl windows, assuming a fair price point.
The Contractor model comes standard with features that include a cam action sash lock, a 3 1/4 inch frame depth, equal sight lines, tilt in sashes on the hung windows, an integral interlock system, double weatherstripping, an extruded aluminum half screen, and two ventilation latches. The Contractor window model can be ordered in either a beige or white on both the interior and the exterior.
