MALVERN, Pa.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--An expanding economy, rising home prices and increased residential construction will drive demand for windows and patio doors over the next several years. The big winners in windows and patio doors will be companies that formulate and implement strategies to control costs, align resources, increase market share and grow margins.
A continued focus on energy efficiency is driving builders to offer triple-pane and gas-filled windows as upgrade options and is encouraging property owners to install energy efficient windows at a faster rate. While energy efficiency is a focal point for many manufacturers, aesthetics continue to be a key decision factor for property owners.
Dawn Habgood, Vice President, Research Solutions for Principia, adds, “Property owners are also looking for high-end aesthetics at reasonable price points in materials ranging from vinyl to wood and clad-wood windows as well as high performance composites. Window and patio door suppliers need answers that will give them the competitive edge to increase market share and margins.”
