Vinyl retrofit window

John's Window & Door

PRODUCT DESCRIPTIONS



Builder's Series


The builders series is the most economical product line we sell. It is available in a horizontal slider, single hung, picture (fixed), casement, awning, radius shapes, and sliding glass door. The depth of the window frames is 2 5/8" compared to the 3 1/4" frame depth of the other product lines available. This smaller frame depth comes into play when doing replacements. If you are retrofitting over existing metal windows, the vinyl frame must come further into the room than the existing metal frame so you can hide the metal frame inside with trim. If the existing metal windows are single pane, there should not be an issue. However, if you are replacing dual pane metal windows, the smaller frame depth may not work. Also, the retrofit frames are only available in the standard fin design, which is about 1/8" thick. That fin is best suited for when you need to cut the fin down so it will fit between wood or brick. If the fin is going directly on stucco, a fin upgrade is advisable because the standard fin has a tendency to conform to the uneven surface of the stucco, creating a wavy appearance. If you are replacing old wood windows, the "pocket" of the wood frame is 3 1/4" deep. The builders series frame will not fit tight in the pocket, so some sort of trim will have to be added inside in order to fill the pocket. So you can see why it is called the "builders series". It is really better suited for new construction.

Available in white, sand, clay, painted silver, painted bronze, and painted black. Painted colors are exterior only. All of the products in the builders series come with the same lifetime warranty as the rest of the Ply Gem product lines.

Pro 200/700 Series


The Pro 200/700 is a step up from the Builders series. The frame depth of the replacement windows is 3 1/4". It fits tight in the pocket of a wood sash window frame. With the retrofit fin attached, the frame depth is reduced to 3", which is still more than enough to allow for interior trimming. The retrofit fin is available in 3 types. You can get the standard fin, the dual wall fin (1/4" thick), or the Brick Molding fin which is a full 3/4" thick.

The Pro 200 is available as a horizontal slider, single hung, picture, and radius shapes. The Pro 700 is available in the casement and awning styles. There are more glass upgrade options available. In addition to clear or HP LowE, you can get HP2+, which has LowE on both panes of glass. You can get HP2 Max, which is 3 panes of glass with LowE on the inside and outside panes. Finally, you can get HP3 Max, which is 3 panes of glass with LowE on one surface of all 3 panes. The Pro 200 is available in white, sand, clay, painted silver, painted bronze, and painted black. Painted colors are exterior only. The Pro 700 products are available in every Ply Gem frame color to match both the Pro 200 and Premium series.
