Over the course of 2013, our net sales to single-family homebuilders grew nearly 31% and our net sales to remodeling contractors increased over 18%. This revenue growth, which outpaced the underlying increase in US single-family housing starts of 15.5%, as reported by the US Census Bureau, enabled us to expand our operating profit margins and accelerate investments in our business."

These initiatives contributed to a reduction in our selling, general and administrative expenses as a percentage of net sales to 21.3% for full year 2013, compared to 23.5% in 2012. We also increased our gross profit as a percentage of net sales to 22.9% for full year 2013 as compared to 22.8% in 2012 and achieved sequential improvements in our gross margin percentage during each of the last three quarters of 2013."
