According to Window and Door Publication, there looks to be some positive change on the horizon for manufacturers in the New Year, according to results from the annual Window & Door Industry Pulse survey. Sixty percent of surveyed manufacturers report that they plan to modernize and increase efficiency in 2015. Second on the priority list in terms of where they will invest is in expanding production capacity. If you’re considering window replacement and upgrades to your South Florida Home in the coming year, it pays to choose an installer that keeps current with construction and manufacturing trends, like Daniel Van Dyk, owner of The Window Experts in Boca Raton.
This aligns with other feedback from the study, namely, that only 9 percent of manufacturers do not plan to add new products to their offerings in the coming year. The Window Experts keep up to date on many product launches planned around the major trade shows in the industry, including the International Builders’ Show in January and GlassBuild America in September 2015.
In terms of what types of products manufacturers plan to add to their lines, 33% of surveyed manufacturers will introduce windows that meet the new v6.0 Energy Star requirements. Vinyl windows and entry doors are also anticipated introductions. The category of “other” included products such as accessories and enhancements to existing platforms, options, aluminum windows and doors, extrusion components, tempered glass, new machine designs, and composite windows.
Before you choose an installer in Palm Beach, Dade or Broward county for your window replacement project, make sure they are up to date and quoting you on the latest and most innovative products available today. You can count on industry leaders like The Window Experts to help you navigate the often confusing sea of replacement window hype vs. reality.
