2021 Product Guide: Windows and Doors

A number of manufacturers have re-imagined their window and door collections this year, highlighting old favorites and creating new product options for builders and buyers looking for a change. New exterior doors strike a balance between beauty and resilience, with a bevy of designs to match trending home styles, and bold black frames have come to the fore as a popular choice on windows and sliding patio doors. Wood and wood-look remain popular across this category, as well as resilient product options for applications that require greater wind, impact, and wildfire resistance.
