ABSi and AG Millworks Team up in Silicon Valley!

May20161When this family was in the process of designing their spacious new home, they wanted the best of both worlds for their doors and windows—sleek and modern function with warm, traditional details. Builder Gary Ernst of Ernst Development and Designer Steve Simpson of SDG Architecture teamed up with ABS Los Gatos Door and Window expert Loren Monge to help them make their dreams a reality. AG Millworks custom aluminum clad bi-fold patio doors and custom aluminum clad pocketing lift and slide doors were the perfect solution for their New England-inspired traditional home.

Bi-fold doors and windows fold open entire rooms to the outdoors in the playful pool/guesthouse living quarters and kitchen. In the great room of the main house, pocketing lift and slide doors disappear into the walls to create living space that flows out seamlessly onto the patio and pool areas. Two walls of the formal dining room fold away with AG Millworks bi-fold patio doors, transforming a cozy winter dining experience into an open air patio in just moments.

A new take on an old favorite—the pass-through kitchen window is achieved with bi-fold patio windows so every opening is accessible when the family entertains. Throughout the rest of the house, high end production windows and doors from Clad Outswing Bi-Fold Windows, Clad Bi-fold Doors, Clad Lift & Slide Doors, and Clad Lift & Slide Pocket Doors. All products were finished with a white clad exterior, primed interior, no screens, with satin nickel hardware and SB 60 Glass.

PRESS- DWM Magazine 2016. What to do When the Wall Just Won't Do?

WhatToDo1

In February, Associated Building Supply, Inc., was named one of DWM’s fastest-growing dealers, having seen sales revenue grow more than 40 percent each year for the past three years and that’s because ABSi knows big sliding doors! In 2014, ABSi was Western Window Systems largest volume specialty dealer in the US., Euroline Steel Windows & Doors’ top volume dealer in the US., and Jeld-WEN’s largest volume specialty dealer in California.

The beauty for the Window & Door Dealer is the ability to blend margins up by inserting specialty sliding doors systems into standard window and door packages. "A veteran sales rep is laser focused on earnings and uses this strategy as a tool to increase commissions and margin bonuses," says Scott Thurber, Vice President of Associated Building Supply, Inc. This high end sliding door product segment has not yet been commoditized in the marketplace primarily due to its installation and application complexities. To sell successfully with no call backs requires a higher sales skill set which includes rough opening layout, post job walks, and structural engineering. When a sales rep can flawlessly perform these value added services builders will happily pay more for the product.
