Ply Gem showcased large patio doors at the 2019 International Builders' Show, including its MaxView Sliding Patio Door. We spoke with VP of Marketing Mark Montgomery about the door, which features modern, 3/4-inch sight lines and can be opened and closed via remote or smartphone.

The company also features numerous ways to create colored windows, including aluminum cladding, coextrusion, PVC foil, and heat-resistant paint. According to Montgomery, dark colors, such as bronzes and blacks are "all the rage" for windows and doors.
