Take the Pulse

THE TALK... | Markets & Trends

To keep on beat with the pulse of the industry, we need to hear from those that comprise it. What products are most popular in your corner of the market? Are you planning for an increase in sales and production in 2019? How do you find the people to keep it all in motion? Weigh in on the Industry Pulse survey, open now through Thursday, October 25.

The purpose of this important study—results of which will be presented in the January/February issue of Window & Door—is to provide insight on industry-wide trends and expectations. The data can be used as a tool to set reasonable expectations for the future and see where your experiences fit in with the bigger scope of the market. 

Your input is crucial to the report. We’re asking the entire industry to participate—calling on all manufacturers, dealers and suppliers to help ensure the results reflect what all of you see in your own businesses. We want to know about the challenges you had in 2017 and to celebrate this year’s successes. We want to hear about your goals and expectations for 2018. And we look forward to providing the full report in our first issue of 2018.

Click here to participate. If you have more insight to offer beyond the survey, please contact me to discuss.
