Ply Gem Canada Launches Mitten Pro iPad App to Help Homeowners Visualize Remodeling Upgrades and Contractors Grow their business

Published on Thursday, 6 October, 2016

Contractors can assure customers that what they see on the app is what they’ll get—the remodel of their dreams

Brantford, ON (September, 2016) – Canadian home renovations are outpacing new builds, meaning potential big business for remodelers. According to the Altus Group, residential renovation spending in Canada has increased year-over-year since 2014, with $20 billion more spent on residential renovations in 2015 than on new residential construction. To help meet remodeling needs and increase project size for exterior jobs, contractors can now download the free Mitten Pro iPad App, backed by leading North American building products manufacturer Ply Gem.

Now available for download through the Apple App Store, the Mitten Pro iPad App was created as an easy-to-use design tool – featuring ‘enVISION it’ software – that takes the guesswork out of designing home exteriors. With the free app, contractors can help homeowners visualize updates and additions to home exteriors early in the decision-making process.

"This app was designed to take ideas from imagination to reality, jumpstarting conversations between professionals and homeowners,” said John Vukanovich, Ply Gem’s Vice President, Marketing – Canada. "We understand that exterior remodels are an important investment, but homeowners often don’t know where to begin when it comes to design. Through the process, professionals can work with customers to walk them through the various products, colours and profile options available.” 

Contractors have two options within the app: designing with pre-loaded sample projects or uploading a photo of the customer’s home for a truly custom virtual renovation. With either option, users can digitally replace existing exterior elements with an array of product offerings, including siding, stone, trim, accents or windows.

Once a project has been completed within the app,contractors can e-mail final images to their customers to strengthen their overall quotes and close project proposals faster. With a concrete visualization, homeowners feel more secure investing in their homes as they have more control over the planning process. Homeowners can also easily share their new designs on social media with friends and family.

To download the free iPad app, search for "Mitten Pro” on the App Store.

Ply Gem products, including industry-leading Mitten by Ply Gem vinyl siding, are available in Canada through a nationwide network of Ply Gem-owned distribution centers and dealer distributors. For more information, please visit www.plygem.ca.

Wipe Away Window Condensation this Winter with Window Glass Technology from Ply Gem

Published on Friday, 6 November, 2015

[object HTMLInputElement] 

Calgary, AB – Installing windows with Low-E glass options is one of the best ways to improve energy efficiency in the home, but the benefits go far beyond that. Because high-performance windows create a warmer interior glass surface, condensation is also reduced. To help builders and remodelers improve their customers’ home efficiency and mitigate concerns for window condensation issues, Ply Gem, a leading North American exterior building products manufacturer and Canadian supplier, offers several glass package options.

The Ply Gem Solution
Ply Gem Low-E glass increases home comfort, protects valuables from sun damage and creates less condensation – far better than conventional clear glass. It has a low-emissivity coating and argon gas that radically improves thermal efficiency and reduces unwanted solar heat gain.

ECO GAIN 180 High Solar Gain Glass blocks heat loss to the outside and reflects heat back into the room. It allows the winter sun’s heat to pass into the home and provide “free heat.”

ECO SHIELD 270 Solar Control Glass reduces solar heat gain by 50 percent or more compared to ordinary glass in the summer and blocks heat loss in the winter.

ECO MAX SHIELD 366 Ultimate Performance Glass lets more light in and keeps more heat out. It provides the highest levels of year-round comfort and energy savings, making it the perfect glass for any geographic region nationwide.

ECO TINT 240 Glare Control Glass provides effective glare control and maximum solar heat blockage. It blocks solar heat gain and maintains cool glass temperatures in summer, as well as warm inside glass temperatures in winter.

By installing windows with Low-E glass options, while educating homeowners on the causes and conditions that condensation occurs under, builders and remodelers can reduce customer concern about a window issue.

For instance, the build-up of moisture on the glass is often equated with a fault in the window, but in most cases it is a sign of perfectly secure construction and a call to reduce indoor humidity. Condensation forms when warm, humid air contacts a cold surface, and because windows are the coldest surface indoors during the winter, they are often the first place condensation can be seen.

Everyday activities like showering, cooking and doing laundry cause indoor air humidity – some homes produce more than four gallons of moisture per day.

Modern, well-insulated construction is another cause of indoor humidity. Energy-efficient homes help regulate heating and cooling costs, but the tight construction can also block outdoor air from entering homes, while keeping the moisture from venting to the outdoors.

In addition to window condensation, excess indoor humidity can cause health problems and structural damage. Moist areas act as a breeding ground for mold and mildew, which can cause allergic reactions, infections and chronic respiratory problems. Humid indoor air can also cause insulation to deteriorate, paint to peel, and structural damage to floors and foundation.

 

Humidity Reduction Tips
Even the best windows are at risk of condensation build-up when there is excessive humidity coming from inside the home. To reduce indoor humidity and eliminate foggy windows, increase ventilation:

  • Vent all gas burners, clothes dryers etc. to the outdoors
  • Install kitchen and bathroom exhaust fans to draw steam outdoors
  • Keep attic vents open and clear
  • Install storm windows to keep interior glass warmer
