Residential Windows & Doors


Attention: There is an updated edition available for this report.

Residential Windows & Doors

Window and door demand in residential applications in the US is projected to reach $25.6 billion in 2020 on six percent yearly advances.  The ongoing recovery in new housing construction will drive demand.  Consumer efforts to improve the appearance and energy efficiency of their homes will also support growth.

Plastic to See Fastest Advances

Materials used in residential windows and doors include:
Wood
Vinyl
Fiberglass
Aluminum
Steel

Plastic products, which account for the largest share of window demand and a significant share of door demand, will see the fastest growth of any material because of their low cost, energy efficiency, and attractive appearance.  

ENERGY STAR Products Gain Share

The ENERGY STAR program administered by the US EPA certifies that window and door products are highly energy efficient for particular climate zones in the US.  The majority of residential windows and doors sold in the US meet ENERGY STAR standards.  Consumers will continue to look for the ENERGY STAR label to save money on energy bills and make their homes more comfortable. 

Wood Dominates Interior Doors

While wood will see below-average growth in windows and exterior doors because of concerns about wear and damage due to exposure to the elements, the material will continue to dominate the residential interior door market.  Wood interior doors are low cost, attractive, and available in a variety of styles.
