Spring officially begins tomorrow and with it comes the spring selling season. Just about everyone agrees the new construction market is unlikely to make much of a comeback this year, but what about replacement and
remodeling activity?

I thought it would be a good time to see what everyone thinks, so that’s our poll question of the week. Will subprime woes and diminished home values hurt the market this year? Will rising energy prices convince more people it’s time to replace their windows?

Email me and let me know what you’re expecting. And if you see any new trends or developments in the market, I’d love to hear about those too.
