Originally, Simmonds Paint & Glass was established in Anacortes, Washington in 1923. Flash forward nearly 75 years, a gentleman by the name of Jerry Meyer purchased Simmonds Glass. Sometime later, in the year 2000, with little more than a cell phone and a second hand blueprint table, Island Sash & Door was opened by David Serres. Over the years, Jerry and David talked regularly, formed a friendship and collaborated on many projects. Unfortunately, Jerry fell ill and proposed that David buy Simmonds Glass. Jerry passed and David purchased the business in August 2015. The acquisition of Simmonds Glass broadened Island Sash & Door’s portfolio and added depth, expertise, and an expanded line of products and services. In 2007, As the recession loomed, Island Sash & Door embraced the window retro-fit portion of the industry. Becoming one of the first companies in the entire Pacific Northwest to adopt the emerging Liquid Membrane Flashing technologies (and philosophy), they continue to lead the retro-fit industry with the only system and method that ensures protection of your home against water intrusion and have become industry leaders in “high exposure installations.”


2017 brought the opening of a new satellite sales office in Lake Oswego, Oregon; Island Sash & Door. David, a native of Lake Oswego, began his career in the window & door industry in 1975 – right here in the tri-county area. Returning to our roots; Island Sash & Door has successfully serviced the Architectural & Custom Home Builder/Remodeler arenas providing the best of products, service & expertise for them & their clients.


Our newest location is the latest expansion for Island Sash and Door. Opened in June of 2020, Branch Manager, Gene O’Brien has built a Window and Door Hub for Western Oregon.

Gene (an admitted and independently confirmed Window and Door Geek) started his career in this industry in 1989 when he joined the team at the local lumber yard and quickly became their window expert.

Over the years Gene has bought, sold, specified, serviced, and installed every type of window & door product the industry has offered. Working with the Architectural and Design communities, coordinating with the builder, or consulting directly with the owners, Gene’s approach has always been the same;

“My focus is to understand the client’s goals for performance, vision of aesthetics, and budget; and match them with the appropriate product lines to help meet those objectives.”
