2014 was another eventful year for the door and window industries, and dwmmag.com was there to cover every aspect of it. So as we prepare for the start of 2015, let’s look back at the most-clicked stories of the past 12 months.

The most-read story of the year was an item from August about a class action lawsuit filed in Kansas against MI Windows and Doors claiming that the company uses unfair and deceptive trade practices.

The year’s No. 2 story also comes from August — a short piece on Consumers Digest selecting its “Best Buys” for entry doors in three categories.

An April story on Beechworth Windows’ expansion into fiberglass products ranked No. 3 for the year.

Coming in at No. 4 is another legal story — a lawsuit filed against Jeld-Wen and Home Depot for a lift handle defect on a window. The item was published on dwmmag.com in January.

And the No. 5 story of the year? The EPA’s release in January of the final Energy Star Version 6.0 Residential Windows, Doors and Skylights Specification.

The year’s top blog entry came from Jim Plavecsky. This item on fourth-surface low-E coatings on windows generated a lot of discussion in the comments.

(In an interesting aside, an August 2012 blog item on Andersen Windows by Mark Milanese remains one of the top-performing pieces of content for dwmmag.com.)

DWM’s top video of the year went online in February and featured coverage from the International Builders’ Show in Las Vegas.

Another frequently viewed video was March’s coverage of Fensterbau 2014 in Germany.

Thanks for reading dwmmag.com in 2014, and may 2015 be prosperous and positive for the door and window industries.
