Les Brownell started Windows & Doors By Brownell in April 1991 with the concept of specialization. The focus of the business was on residential exterior openings. He began the first year offering installation of Marvin Windows & Doors.
Over the years the company has remained committed to Marvin Windows and Doors, however, a few select product lines have been added to handle the customer’s entire exterior wall needs, including Velux roof windows, Therma-Tru entrance doors and Larson storm doors. Les believes quality manufacturers are a vital aspect of the business and remains dedicated to these manufacturers.
Our innovative Williston showroom was built in 1998 with the purpose of displaying product lines in various interior and exterior settings. The design of this showroom emphasizes how windows and doors look in real home settings and displays a wide variety of windows and doors in different sizes, shapes, colors and combinations. In 2007 a new showroom location was added in Plattsburgh, NY. In 2010 Windows & Doors By Brownell expanded further and opened a third showroom location in West Lebanon, NH. We continuously expand and update our showrooms to include new product offerings.
The focus of Windows & Doors By Brownell has been the residential housing market with increased emphasis in the commercial area. We have expanded our installation services to include commercial projects. Over the years, the housing market has changed and we have seen consumer demands shift from new construction to remodelling and replacement. Consequently, we believe that an expert sales team with extensive building knowledge is essential in today’s marketplace. Educating the customer to make correct buying decisions for their unique project is the essence of our business. Service is critical to maintaining a competitive edge and Windows & Doors By Brownell has its own Service Department dedicated to insure product performance.
What began as a single man operation has grown into a dynamic company. Every employee works hard to ensure the customer engages in a positive experience. Today, Windows & Doors By Brownell remains a family owned and operated business. Les continues as President/Owner and is very active in day-to-day operations – specifically in the Installed Sales portion of the business, Tomma is Vice President, Candace focuses on Decorative Hardware Sales and Marcy is the Operations Manager.
