What Kind of Growth Do You See Ahead?

"We're looking for 20 percent growth this year." That's what one window manufacturer told me yesterday as I made the rounds at the International Builders' Show.  It was a refreshing change from the conversations I heard a year ago when a mood of doom and gloom was more prevalent.

Now I've heard numerous reports, most specifically from those focused on the replacement window market, from companies saying they're back on the growth curve.  Maybe I'm asking for trouble, but I thought I would ask what you're expecting for the coming year now.

And of course I'd like to hear more from you.  Where do you see opportunities?  Is it just coming from tax credits?  Do you see any other market segments coming to life?   I'll be asking around the Builders' Show, but email me and let me know what you see out there too.

What level of growth do you see for your company in 2010?
20 percent or more
10 to 20 percent
5 to 10 percent
Less than 5 percent
No growth, and mayber further decline
