“Demand for our products continues to grow based on our deep customer relationships and increased awareness of the benefits of our impact-resistant products following last year’s hurricane season. I am proud of our team’s response to this increased demand and ability to deliver exceptional operating performance that resulted in gross margin improvement of three percentage points in the second quarter compared to last year. The positive impacts of increased demand for our products, and our strong operating performance and solid free cash flow underlie our decision to increase the ranges for all metrics in our guidance for the full year of 2018,” continued Jackson.

“As we move through 2018, we continue to successfully execute on our strategy of investing in advertising and marketing to drive strong sales and expect to further enhance value going forward. We are excited about the opportunities ahead and look forward to completing our acquisition of Western Window Systems to position PGT Innovations as a national leader in the premium window and door space. As we enter the second half of the year, we are well positioned and focused to deliver on our strategic plan and deliver exceptional full year results,” Jackson concluded.
