Professional Egress Window Installation Services Since 2000

Basement egress windows have several purposes. Traditional basement windows block light from entering your basement.

Creating an egress window well will improve light flow into your basement. They will also give your room a spacious feel.

To make a separate basement apartment, you must install Egress windows. This is a requirement found in the Ontario Building Code. We can help you understand the regulations required for installing an egress window. An egress window will make your living space meet the legal requirements.

Creating a walkout/walk-up basement can add to the value of your home. It is also a great option for creating a separate living space that will not disturb the main residents.

    Basement Window Replacement

    Basement windows present a particular challenge when it comes to window replacement. They include all the features of a regular window in a smaller space, usually with a thin profile frame to maximize sunlight exposure. Most homeowners choose to go with either a slider window or a full glass window for their basement windows although they are available in other varieties such as awning basement windows, bay basement windows etc. Learn more.

    Patio Door Cut-Outs

    Cutting out a new door or patio door is a great way to improve ease of access on your property. You can create a patio door that will allow you to walk out onto your deck or backyard. A new door cut-out can also provide private access for a tenant or a child living in a separate unit in the house. Lastly, enlarging an opening to create a new patio door can bring a lot of light into a room and create a more pleasant atmosphere. Learn more about patio door cutouts.

    One of the most common reasons to install an egress window is if you are converting your basement into a secondary suite. An egress window in a secondary suite is usually required unless there is a door on your basement floor that leads directly to the outside.

    Many of our customers also choose to install an egress window if there is a family member that lives in the basement. In that case, an egress window can provide a safe means of escape in case of a fire or other emergency.

    It is also important to note that an egress window is not required in every bedroom. As long as there is an egress window somewhere on the same level it is in compliance with the Ontario building code.

    The Ontario Building Code sets out requirements for the size, type, and operation of an egress window.

    • The window must be operable from the inside without the use of keys, tools or special knowledge.
    • The window must have an unobstructed opening not less than 3.8 square feet (approximately 30” x 30” brick opening). This size requirement refers to the size of the opening, not simply the area of glass or window. The window must also be able to maintain that opening without requiring additional support.
    • The window must not have any dimension that is less than 15”
    • In the case of basement windows, often a window well is required. The well must project from the window at least 22” to provide passage to the exterior.

    It is also recommended that the window is not higher than 40 inches above the ground. This can be somewhat challenging in a basement. In such cases, some elevation device or piece of furniture can be used to meet this recommendation.

    If you are in the process of converting your basement into a secondary suite, your architect or engineer might say that you need an “escape window”. These are different from regular windows in a few ways:

    • Must have an openable portion that is 4.1 Square feet (approximately 31 x 31 brick opening)
    • Must not have any dimension that is less than 18”
    • The bottom of the window sill must not be higher than 35” than the floor below (can use steps or fixed furniture to meet this requirement)
    • The window must open into a window well that has a projection no less than 39”

    Egress Window Types

    The Ontario Building Code sets out requirements for the size, type, and operation of an egress window.

    • Single or Double Slider Egress Window
    • Casement Egress Window
    • Awning Egress Window
    • Single or Double-Hung Egress Window
    • Tilt & Turn Egress Window

    Single or Double Slider Egress Window

    Slider windows can be used as egress windows if the open portion of the window is large enough to meet the clear opening requirement of 3.8 square feet. Some companies sell windows that allow the pane to swing out as well but inspectors often don’t pass these. Many basements already have existing slider windows so simply replacing those with a single pane window will allow you to meet egress requirements.

    Casement Egress Window

    Casement windows are a popular choice for egress windows. These are windows that open outwards using a crank and are often used when there is an obstruction that prevents the windows from opening into the house. Our windows come equipped with specialized hinges that allow the window to open fully into a 22″ window well and create the required clearance for egress windows.

    find out more

    Awning Egress Window

    An awning window can be used as an egress window as long as there are no obstructions above to prevent it from opening fully upwards. The sash of the window must also remain in an open position without the use of any additional support. Because awning windows have to support the weight of the sash, there are restrictions on how big the window can be.

    find out more

    Single or Double-Hung Egress Window

    Single or double hung windows can serve as egress windows but are not commonly used. Because only the openable portion can count towards the “clear opening” requirement, a single-pane window is often preferred. The openable portion of the hung window needs to remain open without additional support to allow a person to escape and maintain the required opening as per regulations.

    find out more

    Tilt & Turn Egress Window

    Tilt and turn windows are windows that swing into the interior of the house. They are a common choice for egress windows as they can be opened fully and provide a large clear opening. They also have the additional functionality of tilting from the top to allow air to circulate in the room.

    I had a new egress window installed in my basement recreation room. The team of two arrived shortly after 8:00 am and the job was done in about 5 hours. The gentlemen who installed the window were friendly, worked efficiently with no breaks, they cleaned up very well inside and out and the new window looks great. Kosta was very knowledgeable during the quotation visit and the price was reasonable. Thank you so much!!

    Update: 1 year later. There was a minor issue with our window. I contacted Bill. He was very helpful, followed up and arranged someone to come out after work to take a look. We remain very happy with the service.Our salesman, Bill, was very professional and responsive. The team that installed was super-efficient and polite. They did a good job and cleaned up before leaving. Very happy with the whole experience.

    Highly recommendable company. We were looking to enlarge 2 basement windows to egress standard. After seeing positive reviews I contacted this company by e-mail on weekend. I was impressed with quick response and an appointment with Nikou was booked immediately. Nikou is very knowledgeable, experienced, friendly and accommodating. The job was booked in 2 weeks. Crew of 3 guys was excellent. They protected inside of the house, each guy did his part without asking, were done in few hours as good team, worked without breaks or smoking or delay. We are very happy with the whole experience and with finished job. Please don't hesitate to give them a chance.

    We are preparing to have our basement finally finished, so the first step was to install an egress window. From beginning to end, the process was perfect. I had an initial meeting with Bill to discuss options. He really explained things well and broke down the whole process. It was an easy transaction to make and I felt very confident with my choice. When the crew arrived on the day of the install they were very professional and got straight to work. I like that they even went out of their way to roll out a little carpet where they'd be walking in and out of the house. The final product is outstanding, my wife and I couldn't be happier:)

    I had expanded my basement egress window and had quite the runaround with other companies before I had luckily come across this one. I am incredibly happy with the services I had received- the customer service from the beginning was professional and prompt, and all of my questions and concerns were answered throughout the process with genuine care and complete information. The actual installation process was quick and clean, and the end result even better than I had expected. I highly recommend their services for any window or door installations! Thank you to Bill for the ongoing communication and positive experience.

    My experience with egress windows was nothing short but amazing. Bill was easy to communicate with and answered all my questions in a timely manner. The job itself was custom basement door replacement and was difficult as my home is very old and nothing is standard. Bills crew did an amazing job and the outcome is better then I expected. I am incredibly pleased with my door. Needless to say I will be using egress windows for more jobs in the future.

    This company did a great job installing my new window and egress. It was surprising how little dust was left behind in the basement. Bill was great to deal with in getting the job appraised and right until the job was finished. I highly recommend this company.
