From magnificent mahogany front doors and stunning picture windows to gorgeous gleaming hardware: When homeowners are looking to give their house’s façade a facelift, Fischer Window and Door Store aims to offer options truly built around you.

For 25 years, the family-owned business has provided an extensive selection of windows and doors in a variety of shapes, styles and sizes for unparalleled design flexibility. As the St. Louis region’s major dealer of high-end window and door lines from Marvin, Integrity and Infinity, clients can choose among customizable aluminum-clad wood, all-wood or fiberglass products and architectural hardware to fit their unique design vision for their home, explains Fischer’s architectural services representative John O’Brien. “Everything is made-to-order.”

Fischer’s five-person sales staff, which has almost 150 years of combined experience in the window and door industry, is dedicated to providing distinctive custom capabilities with top-of-the-line products for simple to complex projects in newly constructed homes, renovations and historic replacements. With its personalized service approach, homes can be fitted with the right window or door through the owner’s contractor, or customers can come into the store’s Brentwood showroom to browse themselves, O’Brien says. “We have one of the most extensive showrooms of windows and doors in the area.”

Through its installation department, Fischer can install replacement windows and doors during home remodels. “The installation process can be complicated, so it’s very important to have experienced professionals,” O’Brien notes. Or the team can provide energy-efficient, weather-safe, low maintenance products that save time and labor, as well as improve results, for building professionals constructing new homes.

Previously known as Marvin Window and Door Store, O’Brien says the company was purchased two years ago by the Fischer family. But he notes all aspects of the business were retained, from its staff members to its product lines, services and showroom location. Parent company Fischer Lumber, headquartered in Alton, Ill. since 1941, has the same family business philosophy as the Marvin family, O’Brien says. “The business has always been family-owned, and Fischer has the same ideas about treating customers the right way.”

So whether you’re looking for a fabulous front entrance to up your home’s curb appeal or new windows for better energy-efficiency, Fischer Window & Door Store strives to build for your ideal lifestyle.
