U.S. door sales recovered between 2012 and 2015 as new residential construction increased at double-digit rates over this period, and nonresidential building construction spending surged in recent quarters. The builder market remains strong since mortgage rates are at historically low levels. However, the number of doors installed per new housing unit has turned downward as builders shifted to the construction of smaller multi-family housing units. Meanwhile, the residential replacement market has lagged overall market growth since the driver of residential remodeling projects- existing home sales- are being held back by below average income and employment gains over the current recovery period. The recovery has been sharper for wood doors than metal doors since the residential market outpaced the nonresidential market in the early years of the recovery.
