The year was 1985. Kim and Oanh Blake found themselves venturing into what was then a small store called All-Weather Window and Door to repair a torn patio screen. This Mission store with the iconic yellow umbrella was full of bicycles, treasure chests, and other miscellaneous goodies. “Kim and I did not know if it was a window and door store when we walked in,” Oanh recalls.
Upon striking up a conversation with the owner Roger, Kim and Oanh discovered that he was looking to sell the business. Kim had some experience working in the industry part-time while he attended college. Come February of 1996, Kim and Oanh were officially the new owners of the yellow umbrella window and door company.
