The Possibilities are Limitless
Ply Gem understood that homeowners are sometimes frustrated with the prospect of living in just another cookie-cutter house. Real people have real preferences when it comes to design and style.
The system offers homeowners a chance to roll up their sleeves and get engaged in the home building process.
To meet the need of those homeowners seeking a customized and tailored look, Ply Gem partnered with a leading architectural firm to identify which styles homeowners most preferred. The result is a complete exterior solution, “The Designed Exterior”.
Ply Gem, a leading manufacturer of window, door, siding and veneer products, completes the whole-home design process through it’s partnership with GAF Roofing, the largest manufacturer of residential and commercial roofing products in North America.
Pictured above is The Cabin Design from The Designed Exterior collection. The examples on this page are but just a few of the many design possibilities available.
Whether you’re having your first home built– or you’re ready for your dream home — Ply Gem and Arrowhead Building Supply offers the products and the tools necessary to visualize the outcome — before the first sawdust flies.
What makes the system work is the ability to replicate timeless designs and styles with modern, low maintenance materials. In many cases, GREEN building concepts can also be applied to ensure maximum efficiency and energy savings.
Your reasons may be functional or they may be aesthetic; Ply Gem understands that change is inevitable.
You can beautifully transform the look of your existing house with low maintenance materials that will allow you to spend time enjoying your home instead of fixing it.
Ply Gem selected more than 20 of the most commonly lived-in housing styles across America and developed a designing process where you can express your personality and taste.

Here’s an amazing story from Ply Gem highlighting a seven home / seven design / seven day building project in tornado-devastated Joplin, Missouri. The home exteriors were all designed with the Ply Gem Designed Exterior system, constructed from Ply Gem building components and completed with support from ABC’s Extreme Makeover: Home Edition and host Ty Pennington.
