Linetec finishes Loewen windows for Canada’s Windermere House

Designed by E3 Architecture and builder Birkholz Homes
Designed by E3 Architecture and builder Birkholz Homes

Located in a high-end residential suburb of Edmonton, Alberta, the Windermere House serves as a luxury show home with top-notch, European-inspired finishes – inside and out. Designed by E3 Architecture and builder Birkholz Homes, the prestigious residence blends metal, glass, wood, warm hues and natural light. Completed in 2014, this 8,000-square-foot house features Loewen’s aluminum-clad windows painted by Linetec to ensure the intended, high-quality presentation with minimal maintenance.

Conforming to the neighborhood’s Victorian-Georgian strict architectural standards, E3 changed the perimeter of the house from a square to a U-shape to maximize the Windermere House’s daylight and views with glass balconies, patio doors and Loewen’s custom-made, triple-glazed windows. To optimize placement, the architectural drawings incorporated 3-D renderings of Loewen’s products from the project’s earliest phases.

Linetec finished Loewen’s windows in a Tuscany Brown color using a 70 percent polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF) resin-based coating. These coatings meet the stringent requirements of AAMA 2605 and exhibit outstanding resistance to humidity, color change, chalk, gloss loss and chemicals. The resulting finish provides durability and requires minimal maintenance throughout the show home’s lifespan.
