Ply Gem Windows, a manufacturer of window and door products for the residential new construction and home repair and remodeling end markets, was selected to provide Ply Gem Windows Mira Premium Series windows and patio doors for a Season 8 episode of "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" in Baltimore, Md. The build began July 9 and the home will be revealed to the recipients of the "Boys Hope-Girls Hope" organization on July 18.

Excel Homes, the leading manufacturer of custom modular houses, and the Maryland Community Builders' Foundation, the charitable arm of the Home Builders Association of Maryland are building the new home for "Boys Hope-Girls Hope" with the help of Artisan Fine Homes.

"Boys Hope-Girls Hope" is an organization that provides a home for promising inner city youth and prides itself on nurturing a community's future.

"Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" has jumped in to complete the build and help make this dream a reality.

"We are grateful to have been selected as the window and door provider for a third Extreme Makeover: Home Edition build, especially one that will help an entire community, in addition to a new Girls Hope family," said Chris Pickering, vice president, marketing, Ply Gem windows.
