Alpine Builders’ Hardware’s new 4000-square-foot showroom at 5 Murray Road, Suite C3 in Edwards Design and Craft Center offers over 50 direct lines of hardware and the showroom is so extensive that it has been described as the “top displaying showroom in the country.” The showroom is a vital part of making design decisions because clients, designers, and architects can touch and feel the actual products instead of spending hours scanning the internet or waiting for samples to be delivered.
The offer a wide range of bronze, stainless steel, brass, pewter, iron, steel, glass, leather, and copper products. Whatever your design aesthetic—traditional, mountain contemporary, artisan, or Euro-modern styling—Alpine Builders’ Hardware covers all the bases. With a reputation for excellent customer service and guidance for designers and architects who want place their individual stamp on projects by creating unique pieces to suit each home’s features, Alpine Builders’ Hardware has also reproduced highly detailed pieces to meet historical standards. Several designers have declared that, “there is definitely no need to drive through inclement weather and heavy traffic over the passes to get to Denver any longer. Alpine Builders’ Hardware is it.”
Because their business is focused on resort communities in the Rocky Mountains, many of Alpine Builders’ clients are multiple homeowners from around the world. A testament to the quality of their work? After satisfactorily completing their mountain home project, Alpine Builders’ is often asked by their clients to review plans and work with their contractors at other locales.
Because they are committed to excellence and strong, direct relationships with vendors, Alpine Builders’ Hardware secures deeper discounts from vendors than offered on the internet or through distribution. They also meet or match other quotes.
Beyond the showroom advantages, Alpine’s highly skilled team offers personalized service from concept to installation, setting them apart from competition. Owner Neal Harper has over 25 years of hardware experience; he started his hardware career as a general locksmith at a lumberyard and eventually became national hardware buyer for Home Depot. Karolyn Harper has long worked to find the best fit for people—formerly she was the human resources director for Fortune 500 companies and has put those same skills to work while helping clients select cabinet pulls and bath fixtures to fit the client’s design sensibilities and budget. Bethany Vorthmann draws on her architectural background to identify special design elements for the most discerning clients. Michele Wolfe’s keen eye for details shines when it comes to accounting and receiving. Flip Gallegos joined our team this spring and has loved Vail’s offerings since his childhood. He has an extensive sales background and enjoys the opportunity to meet people through work, sports teams, ski instructing, and mountaineering. Through Flip’s connections in the local medical community, he supports cancer outreach. Our installing teams handle simple drilling for cabinet knobs to highly complicated commercial applications with the greatest care and professionalism.
ABH is committed to giving back to the Vail Valley. The Harper family is fully invested in the business and relocated here to better connect with the entire community, and their staff is actively involved in local events, schools, charities, church, and always enjoying what the mountains have to offer. For example, when ABH relocated to their new showroom, they called upon the brawn of the Eagle Valley High School Football team to move thousands of pounds of hardware. Their donation was used to purchase football equipment like safer helmets.
Strong believers in business to business referrals, ABH supports small businesses that employ locals and provide superior service. Alpine Builders’ Hardware serves on the Board of the Eagle Valley Home Builders Association and has been a longtime sponsor of the “Fastest Builder in the Valley” Ski Race. The goal of that race is to recognize the hardworking builders, designers, and architects who make wonderful improvements to our area. This year, proceeds from the event funded scholarships for local high school graduates going into the trades.
