Solid foundation: A strengthening housing market is expected to foster industry expansion

Demand for deck and patio construction is heavily correlated with the housing sector and, as a result, revenue for the industry has been moderately volatile over the five years to 2016. Lingering effects from the recession caused the housing market to recover slower than the rest of the economy early in the five-year period. However, improving economic conditions, coupled with record-low interest rates, enabled the residential construction market to grow rapidly in recent years, benefiting industry participants. Over the five years to 2021, the Deck and Patio Construction industry is set to expand, albeit more more.
