Our History

The history of Tradewood Windows and Doors began over 50 years ago, with the Company playing a key role in preserving the rich historical architectural heritage of landmark buildings located along the Niagara Frontier. Founded by European trained master woodworkers, their knowledge and skill with windows, doors, cabinetry and architectural millwork was eagerly sought after, setting in motion an uninterrupted tenure of family-owned operations in St. Catharines, Ontario Canada.
