Editor Nigel F. Maynard tours one of the country's first design centers from 84 Lumber and Andersen Windows & Doors in Rockville, Md.
84 Lumber and Andersen have worked together for more than 60 years. Its new design centers offer residential construction professionals a wide selection of doors and windows, finishes, trims, hardware, and more.
"We're hoping to enhance the buying experience for the customers," says Rob Comeaux, territory sales manager for Andersen. "We're hoping that not only will homeowners use it, but we can use it for educational purposes, but also so that we have contractors come in and bring their customers here and make decisions."
