Brett Davis, retail sales manager for Schillings, explains that the Best of the Region award helps the staff to raise their expectations higher.

“Every year, we set a bar with our goals,” Davis says. “When we are recognized for our excellence, it makes us want to try harder, to see if we can improve even more.”

Quality brands such as Andersen, Silver Line, Therma Tru, and Velux provide customers the knowledge that they are buying the best door and window products available.

Knowledgeable staff is another important asset to the business, according to Davis.

Marketing director John White explains that Schillings places its emphasis on retaining customers and having them return for all of their home improvement needs. The combination of great prices and brands, and thorough product knowledge contributes to Schillings’ Best of the Region win.
