Western Window Systems’ Sliding Glass Doors Showcased in More Than Two Dozen Award-Winning Master-Planned Communities

February 15, 2021

PHOENIX, Ariz. — Sliding glass doors from Western Window Systems, part of PGT Innovations’ (NYSE: PGTI) family of brands, are outfitted in at least 27 out of the 50 award-winning master-planned communities in John Burns Real Estate Consulting’s annual Top 50 Master-Planned Communities in 2020.

The brand’s two most popular options were its Series 600 Aluminum Multi-Slide Door and Series 3700 Vinyl Multi-Slide Door among last year’s top communities, including:

“Our team is proud to be a part of these well-designed communities,” said Chet Willis, vice president of production builder sales at Western Window Systems. “Our involvement in these communities is indicative of how important indoor-outdoor living space is to successful new builds. It’s becoming critical. With more time at home, having a flexible environment with outdoor access equals enhanced physical and mental health for homeowners. We’re seeing privatized outdoor living space as a most-wanted feature in a new home.”

According to a May 2019 Forbes’ article, indoor-outdoor living space tops the wish lists of many home buyers. A national 2019 survey of new home shoppers by John Burns Real Estate Consulting found 30 percent of detached new home shoppers would consider attached housing for such private outdoor spaces like a rooftop terrace, deck or private yard. When new home shoppers in general are seeking a lot, 44 percent said they are “looking for an outside deck where I can sit and enjoy the outdoors and views.”

Every year, John Burns Real Estate Consulting ranks the top master plans in the country based on new home sales. Feedback from numerous industry contacts and its boots-on-the-ground consultants support the diligent research that goes into producing its prestigious, annual ranking. According to this year’s report, over 37,000 home buyers purchased new homes in these master plans, reflecting a 31 percent increase from 2019 and a new combined sales record. 

Western Window Systems’ Volume Program is a top choice of production builders. Featuring a full range of products in standard and custom sizes, affordable pricing and faster lead times, the program is designed to meet the demands of business while providing the indoor-outdoor living solutions that homebuyers want.
