Based in Kearney, Missouri, Ply Gem manufactures and markets a variety of products for the residential home new construction and renovation markets.

The former Alcoa siding products are now sold by Ply Gem under the Mastic Home Exteriors brand name. There are two product offerings that fall into the siding category that was originally part of the Alcoa siding line:
Performance Metals Envoy Aluminum Siding is constructed from extremely hard aluminum and is rated to withstand wind speeds of up to 165 miles per hour. This siding product needs no painting and requires little maintenance; it is also covered by a limited lifetime warranty. Specific siding choices in the Envoy line include single 8" panels, double 4" panels, and double 5" panels. Finish options available include straight smooth and straight wood grain.
Performance Metals Endurance Aluminum Siding is available in 8 color choices.
