Loewen Wood Windows
Just about 100 years ago, a family of Russian immigrants settled in Manitoba, Canada and began handcrafting useful items out of wood. After making a name for themselves by selling objects like church pews and bee-keeping equipment, the Loewens expanded their business to include wooden doors and windows, which has become their specialty today. Now Loewens competes in the new construction and window replacement markets.
Most Loewen windows start with a Douglas Fir frame, as the company has found this species of wood to be especially hardy in extremely cold climates. However, the windows they manufacture can come in a variety of wood species, sizes and designs.
Their standard series typically comes with a fir or mahogany interior frame with the customer’s choice of wood- or metal-clad exterior. They offer all of the standard window designs, such as the double hung, casement, picture, bow and bay, awning, access and transom, but also make completely customized windows built to customers’ specifications.
- All wood used in windows are specially sealed to ensure that they are water-repellent, decay-resistant and able to bond easily with paints and stains.
- All windows with metal-clad exteriors have a double-extruded aluminum cladding.
- Thicker glass than any other window manufacturer for more impact-resistance, insulation and soundproofing.
- Customers get to choose their own hardware, locks and handles, as well as the finish they’d like for each window from a color palette of options.
- Storm Force Series - three lines of reinforced windows offer different glazing options for windows with increased impact-resistance, resistance to extreme pressures, or protection from hurricane forces.
- Cyprium Collection - an artisan line of windows with copper- and bronze-clad exteriors.
- Bella Vista Collection - totally custom line of windows made with the highest quality woods, hardware and finishes for upscale homes.
