NADRA HIGHLIGHTS

Color, design and market trends for residential outdoor products 2014
NADRA
The first of its kind report to evaluate the color and design characteristics of building products and décor and how they create the new outdoor room.
Outdoor building products and décor are proving to be an extremely successful and growing market. Homeowners are turning their decks, patios and porches into outdoor rooms and their backyards into casual-living retreats. This is driving the demand for thoughtfully designed products and materials. A portion of the revenues directly benefit NADRA.
