U.S. window sales recovered sharply between 2012 and 2015 due to the strong upturn in housing starts over this period and a significant jump in nonresidential building construction spending in recent quarters. The upturn in new residential sales also received a boost from an increase in the number of windows installed per new housing unit. However, the numbers of windows installed per new housing unit remains below pre-recession levels, since construction of smaller multi-family housing units are leading the recovery in residential construction. Vinyl windows are also leading the recovery in sales.
