It is no secret that materials and quality workmanship are hard to come by nowadays. If you have paid attention to the media at any length as of late, the results of supply, demand, and material availability reverberate across the nation.  Materials needed for home exterior improvement projects are some of the hardest hit. This includes siding, shingles, and windows for window replacement projects.

Window supply and demand for window replacement and installations

Some online sources confirm that many windows are back-ordered for upcoming projects and the availability of certain product lines is taking in excess of 15 weeks and in some cases 24 weeks or more! Hiccups in supplier operations coupled with the heightened demand for windows has put a big strain on some manufacturers for the assembly and production of windows. As far back as early autumn 2020, home remodelers across the industry are finding that lead times for retrieving window products are strained.

In an article published by from 2021, windows were cited as one of the casualties of the supply-chain dysfunction:

“[Builders surveyed] cited windows as the biggest material shortage right now. Average lead times for windows currently range from 4–15 weeks with some window lead times extending 20–45 weeks. Prior to COVID-19, lead times were typically 2–3 weeks.”
