About Lone Star Windows
and owner Abram Letkeman.
I started Lone Star Windows in 2000 because, like many Americans, I had a dream of owning my own business.
I chose the name Lone Star because I wanted to honor the state that I love and call home. Although I was not born in the United States, I consider myself a Texan! Like the bumper sticker says, “I wasn’t born in Texas, but I got here as soon as I could!” I try to blend into Texas by wearing my alligator boots, cowboy hat, shooting my guns, and yelling “Remember the Alamo!” every chance I get. Texas is a daily inspiration to me. We have such a rich history to inspire us in our daily lives. I admire people like Davy Crockett (also not born in Texas) who said, “Let your tongue speak what your heart thinks” and Sam Houston, who said, “Texas has yet to learn submission to any oppression, come from what source it may.” Texans are full of Can-Do spirit, and it is the attitude of our people that makes this a perfect place to own a business; if you want to come here and work hard, Texas welcomes you. That is why I love Texas!
Having spent MANY years installing windows, siding, metal roofs and doors all over West Texas from El Paso to Perryton and almost every town in-between, I have had the great privilege of hearing your stories, stories about how you built this house that I am now remodeling or about how your great grandparents who built this house like Mr. Spinhirne who is making his home more comfortable by having us install new insulated siding to his multi generational home.
I have lived in Amarillo now for over 15 years, I love working for the people here in the Texas Panhandle because you are what Texas is and it shines through in the way you treat your neighbors and the way you treat the people (like me) who work for you. I believe I can call myself an expert because I have spent the last 24 years working in this business, I have done everything from installing new custom made windows to constructing metal buildings to specialty things like making a steel Pergola for Mrs. Handing, but all that doesn’t matter if you, the customer don’t get what you expect. That is why I try to serve people the way I would like to be served and treat people the way I would like to be treated. For me, it’s that simple.
