Brantford, ON – Defining a home’s exterior character is as important as the interior, requiring special attention to detail. Ply Gem, a leading North American exterior building products manufacturer with distribution centre locations across Canada, makes it easier than ever for builders and remodelers to create a finished exterior look with new aluminum accessories. Available through Mitten distribution centres and home improvement retailers nationwide, the aluminum program includes a full lineup of coil, soffit, fascia, rainware and other accessories in over 50 colors designed to perfectly complement Mitten by Ply Gem branded vinyl siding.

"When Ply Gem acquired Mitten Building Products, the end goal was always to offer more products and solutions to more customers,” said Doug Rende, President, Mitten Building Products, plygem. "Today, we are the only company that can offer coast-to-coast access to the largest portfolio of exterior building products in North America. As a single-source supplier, we’re providing builders, retailers and contractors with solutions that help mitigate costs, streamline the ordering and delivery process, and boost revenue.”

As part of Ply Gem’s core offering, the aluminum line is one of 27 product categories in The Designed Exterior by Ply Gem, a complete exterior solution that includes windows, doors, siding, stone veneer, trim, accents, accessories and more. With an industry-leading color-match program the aluminum accessories seamlessly match any siding choice for virtually unlimited design capabilities.

For an attractive, worry-free exterior, Ply Gem takes care to test each product exhaustively before it reaches the market; flexibility, adhesion and solvent resistance are all tested, as well as possible performance inhibitors such as extreme humidity, direct light exposure and contact with salt spray. Ply Gem aluminum accessories stand up to the harshest tests and conditions and are backed by a 50-year prorated warranty.
