Comfort Window & Door Company is another sponsor who is supporting this year’s Canandaigua Art and Music Festival. We conducted an interview with Dan Culhane, Sales Manager of the Rochester office, and here is what he had to say about Comfort Window & Door Company, and their participation in the community and Festival.
Tell me a bit about your company. What products/services do you provide to the community?
Comfort Window & Door Company was founded in Central New York 32 years ago, and has grown into Upstate New York’s premier home improvement company. In addition to manufacturing and installing our own windows, Comfort offers a wide array of other high-quality home improvements. Comfort installs Sunrooms, Basement Remodeling Systems, Entry and Storm Doors, Siding, Trim and Exterior Accessories such as Shutters, Gutters and Moldings.
What inspires your company each day?
We are inspired by our customer’s visions. Everyday we make our customers’ dreams a reality. From design consultations to product selections and all the way through the final finishing touches, our customers can see their dreams come true every step of the way. That’s what inspires us. We work hard for our customers and their appreciation is our reward.
What would you like others to know about your company that they may not know?
Many people know our song and our jingle, and that we are known as a Window & Door company. What people may not be aware of are all the other home improvements we provide. Our Web site walks a prospective client through all of our different categories. Each one is highlighted by a short video to help our clients understand more about what we do and, most importantly, how we do it. Something else that people may not be aware about it that we are also a BPI Certified, Lead Safe Renovator. The benefits that come from these certifications provide consumers with low interest loans, great discounts and subsidies that you won’t find with other companies. There are lots of home improvement companies out there, but we have systems and procedures in place to create a unique way of doing things—that gives our customers a very high level of trust in our system. Our customers rest assured, knowing that we deliver what we promise exceptionally, with the highest attention to every detail. It is by this principle approach that Comfort has become “The Name You Know and The People You Trust.” It’s not just a slogan; it’s our way of doing business.
What made you want to be involved in this year’s Canandaigua Art and Music Festival?
We have been involved in the past with the festival. The Canandaigua Arts and Music Festival is a great way for Comfort to support the local Communities in which we do business. We are proud to support all the musicians and artists that the festival highlights. Being involved in events like this gives Comfort the opportunity to be involved in the community. We often hear from passers-by, “Hey! We love our new windows!” It’s always exciting to meet neighbors who may be interested in learning more about our products and services.
What do you feel your company can bring to this year’s festival?
We have an 18 ft trailer that highlights all of our remodeling products. Whether someone is looking for siding, a sunroom, a basement remodel, a bay window or a door, it’s on display in our trailer. Our trailer is a state-of-the-art mobile showroom. We are excited to show and display all of our great products to our neighbors in Canandaigua and the surrounding areas.
What would you like attendees to learn about your company?
Comfort is a local manufacturer and installer of high quality windows. When you do business with Comfort you are supporting our local economy on a very broad scale, from local manufacturing to highly skilled installers driven to deliver quality every time. We also want people to know that our advice and consultations are always free and without obligation. Our belief is that if we educate enough homeowners about our products and services, we will earn their trust. The majority of our business comes from referrals from people that have already trusted us to work on their homes.
Why do you feel it is important to support an event such as this?
It is a privilege for Comfort Windows & Doors to show our proud support of the Canandaigua Business Community. Many residents of the Canandaigua area have already improved their houses through Comfort. We feel like this is our chance to give back to such a vibrant community and show our appreciation for giving us the opportunity to serve local residents.
How do you feel the festival will benefit the community?
The festival attracts people from all over the area. It encourages visitors to experience the culture of the Canandaigua Business Community. Main Street Canandaigua is a charming district with a diverse offering of goods and services. We are excited to be a part of the hustle and bustle of historic downtown Canandaigua.
For attendees, what do you hope they will experience while at the festival?
We hope all attendees enjoy the warmth and character of downtown Canandaigua. It’s a great event for children of all ages and there’s something there for everyone. I have been to the festival over the past several years with my family, and I can truly say that it is the nicest outdoor family event around. I look forward to attending as a visitor and as a business sponsor every year.
