Windows and Doors Are Performing Well in the Remodeling Market

Jun 19, 2015

When it comes to home improvements, we always recommend door and window upgrades if they are needed – especially when considering the benefits of installing vinyl windows in Kansas City. It turns out that windows and doors are actually performing extremely well in the remodeling market according to the WDMA (Window and Door Manufacturer’s Association).

The WDMA recently released a report that included information on residential entry doors as well as residential and light commercial windows, comparisons of current data with that of data collected in the past few years and, last but not least, forecasts of the window and door remodeling market over the next couple of years, which are based on projections of construction activity. The following is just some of the data that the report touched on:

  • More than 50 million residential window units were shipped across the country in 2014, an increase of 13 percent from the previous year. This number was also three percent more than the growth rate of residential window unit shipments from 2012 to 2013.
  • The Midwest experienced the largest growth rate increase with 11.83 million residential window shipments in 2014 – an increase of 18 percent from the previous year.
  • Side-hinged entry door shipments increased in 2014 by 13 percent, which was more than double the growth of shipments in 2013.
  • The biggest side-hinged entry door shipments happened in the South, where 4.26 million units were shipped; however, this was only an increase of one percent from the previous year.
