While most companies mass-produce
vinyl, composite, or aluminum windows, there are only a handful of boutique
firms that make wood frame windows. Loewen Windows is one such company.
But “company” is too sterile a word for this elegance-inspired
designer of custom windows—a business founded by Mennonite pilgrims,
built on traditional values and carried on with an unsullied work ethic.
The standout quality of Loewen
windows is the wood that they use. Their standard material is the Douglas
Fir. It is a hardy yet beautiful wood that lends the same kind of elegant
beauty to a cabin-style home as it does to a modern artistic domicile.
In addition to the standard fir and mahogany line of windows and doors,
Loewen offers expanded options through a subsidiary company, Bella Vista,
as well as a trademark product, the LiftSlide. LiftSlide windows are
metal-clad windows and doors, which use sliding tracks and large panels
to create easily movable glass.
One reason why Loewen has such
an enduring appeal is because they focus as much attention on quality
craftsmanship as they do on developing fashion-perfect designs. Loewen
customers find that the windows and doors from this company are functionally
flawless, energy efficient and strikingly beautiful.
Although Loewen windows and
doors are peerless—approaching perfection—they are not for everyone.
The customized approach and high-grade materials are luxury items and
usually cater to a luxury budget.
