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.
