We have used Loren on several of our clients projects as well as our own property. It has been great working with him. He guides the clients properly, takes time out to educate everyone on different options. He is very sensitive to budget.

Highly recommend him and Associated Building Supply [Review on Houzz]

Chris Drinkard has handled many window, door, and hardware orders for my company. He has consistently been the most reliable and professional sales persona we have worked with. When I need an accurate quote fast or a technical question answered Chris at associated is my go to guy.

I am writing this email to comment on ABSi Sales Consultant Allen Musser’s professionalism. Allen has worked with an important client of mine over the past two years and his involvement has been outstanding. From the initial meeting at the showroom with the client (on a Saturday when they were normally closed) through the intricacies of ordering, his participation in the delivery, and follow up on site with dealing with missing parts or issues with the manufacturer, Allen has been there helping. Unfortunately, we have has some issues with the Western Window product. Allen has been at every meeting and involved with all aspects of the evaluation and repair. He was even working with the technicians from Western during the repairs. I have never, in almost 30 years as an Architect and years in the construction field before that, worked with a better salesperson in any area of construction.
