“The wide range of factors affecting demand for windows and doors in the residential sector tend to lead to strong growth when the economy is performing well, and more challenging times when the economy declines or stagnates. The market therefore tends to exaggerate economic fluctuations, and there will be strong concerns over the potential disruption caused by the Brexit decision”.
