The Canadian TImberframes Team


Canadian Timberframes is proud to be a Certified Dealer for Loewen Windows

We are excited to bring the outstanding quality and craftsmanship from this Canadian company to our customers. One of the key elements for Canadian Timberframes in making our decision to become a certified dealer was not only the quality but the Douglas Fir used in the production of their products. The Douglas Fir will give our customers the finished match they are after in building their luxury timber frame home.


Alexandre Lathion, a Canadian Timberframes designer & timber frame technician had the chance to take part in their annual dealer training that was held in their factory of Steinbach Manitoba last week.

During the 4 day training session, he got an in-depth look at the process and manufacturing facility; he was able to tour the production lines and headquarters of this company founded in 1905.

With over 500 employees and a production facility of more than 600'000 square feet Loewen has the means to produce an outstanding product. "More so than the means it is the passion and pride that struck me"  said Alexandre  during his visit, "real craftsman are actually involved in the fabrication and design process of these windows and it shows in their end product."


They produce it all, from the very traditional double hung windows to their modern lift and slide system. Loewen also offers a custom window making department to meet any of your design needs...the only limit is your imagination.

With a wide variety of designs and applications, as well as a Canadian dollar price point Loewen is a great addition to our offering and we are looking forward to quoting the windows on your next project.
