you'll get a look from someone who has experience with these windows-the previous poster didn't have much luck in 2001.

Best of luck.

I tried using the search engine, but all I got was ancient posts!  As is the case usually, the only people that write much are those that are upset with their particular circumstances. Still valuable as a reference.

I haven't been to this site in ages but I did just bump into this thread. It's probably too late for your query but I can throw this out there for anyone that might have interest. I installed their doors and windows in my 7000sf house. I have also "attempted" to sell them for almost a year. They assigned me to cover a relatively new area (they use a sales force only incorporating a local retailer when absolutely necessary) where contractors usually buy from the local window distributor or lumber yard. Also, Loewen was well positioned in the area and had been for some time. It was a hard sell to break this relationship saying that this expensive product was comparable to Loewen or worth the additional investment of 50 to 100% over Milgards (ubiquitous in the Northwest). As for how they have fared in our house? Adequate. I do have to agree with one of my prospective customers who said the Loewen "action" is smoother than SP's. I bought almost all double hung. The lock between the sashes seems like an after thought, leading to easily nicking the bottom of the top sash. Pressing up on the top and down on the bottom at the same time is required to lock the sashes. The vinyl rail that the sashes ride on is unfortunate but even more so is that these serve as a pressure fit to pop the sashes out and down to allow for cleaning of the outside. This is very difficult to work and my wife won't touch them. The doors and windows have behaved well weather wise. All in all, next time I'd buy Loewen (not impressed with (Anderson, Pella, Eagle - but then I haven't looked at what's out there for almost 10 years) for appearance and operation.
