Loewen Windows In Michigan
Hi there: Have to do full replacement windows in a log home to replace driven rain damage facing west to Lake Michigan. I see how highly rated Loewen windows were, are they still? will they keep out the sideways rain on a double hung wood clad? Or what brand would you credit for such prevention? Only doing 10 windows and one slider now.
[Site Editor's Answer]
Loewen does make a very good wood window. I'm not a huge wood window fan because of the energy efficiency and life span of the windows. However, living in a log home changes things. I would suggest taking a look at a quality vinyl window with an interior wood laminate. They look very similar to wood windows and you still get all the benefits of vinyl windows.
Loewen Windows vs Andersen
We are replacing our windows using the Andersen A series. They are expensive, do you have any other options that we should look at?
The Andersen A series are high quality wood windows. We may want to compare them in price to the Marvin Ultimate or Loewen windows if they are available near you.
Loewen Window Review
Loewen is roughly equal in cost to Kolbe And Kolbe, Marvin and Eagle. I'd say that Loewen and Marvin are the highest quality of the four window brands.
Loewen Wood Window Options
Marvin wood windows are often considered amongst the best wood windows, but I'd put Loewen up there, as well as Andersen. The high end Pellas are equally good, but very expensive.
Loewen Ordering Issues
I'd recommend Loewen, sort of, but only with caution. About 10 years ago I had almost 40 custom doors and windows put for our renovation project. They kept sending us the wrong order, over and over again. Once we finally got the right ones, the install went great and we've been happy with them, but be careful when you order and make sure you get what you paid for.
Expensive Replacement Parts
I thought my Loewen windows were nice at first, but then they started breaking. Things happen, I wasn't upset at first when some cranks broke on my casements, but when I called to get replacement parts, I was shocked. They wanted $147 a piece for parts! That's ridiculous. If I'd known something simple was going to cost that much to fix. I would have gone with a different brand.
Loewen Windows vs Marvin
Loewen is a much small company than Marvin, but their quality is equal in my mind. Loewen uses a Douglas fir, which is grainier and harder than pine. Marvin on the other hand uses a Ponderosa Pine, which is lighter and has less pattern.
Loewen Wood Clad Windows
There are some great options for wood windows, including Marvin, Pella and Loewen.
Loewen vs Marvin Windows
I own both Loewen and Marvin windows and we like both of them. They are much better than either Hurd or Semco. These wood windows are total pieces of junk in my own estimation.
