Each window and door we create is a custom piece, designed and crafted for the job at hand in order to meet the requirements of your project. We do not carry a stock line of products. Amongst the architectural community, we are well known for our willingness to embrace the architect’s vision and develop highly customized approaches that are collaborative with all parties involved. We also do our best to juggle production schedules in order to accommodate the timing needs of different projects.

“NW Door and Sash was able to provide a completely custom product built to our specifications – something most other notable NW fabricators were unwilling or unable to do. They were also great collaborators throughout the design and shop drawing process. We have had no issues to date with the performance of their pivot and sliding door systems, and the quality of craftsmanship is fantastic.”
