Associated Building Supply Inc. (ABSi), which sells products from LaCantina Doors, Western Window Systems and Pacific Architectural Millwork, among others, agrees that the geographic versatility of the indoor/outdoor living trend comes down to how the entire multi-panel door system is engineered. “The design is 100 percent different depending on the location. You can put the cheapest door in the exact same space, and it may look good, but it could leak like a sieve,” Thurber says. He stresses the importance of proper installation to this extent, specifically calling out the function of the sill pans and flashing system. Water management is a huge piece of the puzzle. And while it may not be top-of-mind for homeowners, it’s the dealer’s responsibility to make it so.

PRESS - Window & Door Magazine 2014. ABSi Top Specialist Window & Door Magazine

ABSi recognized by Window & Door Magaizne in the May 2014 issue as Top Window & Door Specialist.

In a crowded home improvement market, consumers are faced with a plethora of choices when it comes to window and door replacement, as are builders seeking products for new construction projects. And while a number of companies—from big box stores to full-service remodelers—offer window and door products and installation services, they aren’t “specialists” in the field. In an effort to highlight the unique expertise of dealers and distributors that do primarily focus on the window and door market, Window & Door introduces the first national Top Specialists rankings. This new list—the latest in Window & Door’s prestigious “top list” editorial that includes the Top 100 Manufacturers—ranks dealers and distributors specializing in windows, doors, skylights, sunrooms and related products for the new construction, remodeling and replacement markets, based on sales volume. To qualify for these rankings, sales of windows, doors, skylights and related products, accessories and services must account for more than 50 percent of a company’s 2013 estimated total sales. The Top Specialists list is Window & Door’s first effort to identify the largest independently owned, specialty window and door companies in the United States. Click here.
