MAUMEE, OHIO – What a difference 1,000-square feet of showroom space can make to a business. Sunrise Carpentry out of Yorktown Heights, N.Y. discovered this first-hand when they opened their showroom two years ago, and started to see their sales escalate.

Hands-On Showroom Helps Build Business for Sunrise Carpentry"Homeowners love to feel and touch products as they make their remodeling decisions," says Geoff Meyerson, sales representative with Sunrise Carpentry, Inc. "Our company is 20 years old this year, but only once we opened our showroom have we really been able to connect with customers completely and increase their comfort level related to product selections.

"I can walk the customers through the showroom and give them a hands-on experience so they can see the quality of the products we recommend and install regularly."

Meyerson and the team at Sunrise Carpentry focus on 80 percent remodeling projects and 20 percent new construction work in several counties in New York and Connecticut. "We've associated ourselves with quality products like Therma-Tru® fiberglass doors and Fypon® trim since we started our business," says Brian Goc, owner of Sunrise Carpentry, Inc. "These are our preferred products in the door and millwork categories because they allow us to offer our customers superior quality with a strong warranty."*

The Sunrise Carpentry showroom encompasses several rooms in a renovated home setting in Yorktown Heights. Here, homeowners meet to discuss renovations of all sizes, from custom cabinetry replacement to whole-home renovations and additions. The company offers design services along with extensive experience in decks, porches, sunrooms, roofing, finished basements and exterior renovations.

"For our exterior work, we rely on Therma-Tru because their doors are well-made and the Same-Day® Stain kits are easy to use," says Meyerson. "They continue to come out with new products that our customers get excited about, like grilles-between-glass, vented sidelites and composite jambs. Finishing off the entryway with Fypon trim really sets the new door apart and adds curb appeal to the home."

Sunrise Carpentry, which serves Westchester and Putnam counties in New York and Fairfield County in Connecticut, plans to open a dedicated design center in the near future. For more details, visit www.sunrisecarpentry.com.
