Egress Window Installation in Maple, ON

Project Goal:

When Shelly and her husband were getting ready to move to a new house in a Richmond Hill suburb, they thought their basement would be the ideal sanctuary for their teenage son.

There was only one problem, a big problem actually, Daniel who is 6’3” would not have a means of escaping the basement in the event of a fire or other emergency. The existing basement window was 30 inches wide and 8 inches high. Hardly enough space to squeeze through in a pinch.

The current windows were sliders that were starting to show their age. Low quality slider windows are known for allowing air to penetrate between the sashes. Especially slider windows that aren’t made by a quality manufacturer. This can often mean that a light breeze is felt close to the window and low thermal efficiency during the winter months.

With the safety and comfort of their son at top of mind, Shelly decided to contact Egress Experts to install a proper means of escape.

    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.


    Shelly booked a free consultation with our rep Konstantin to estimate the work required and associated costs. After visiting the property and reviewing the scope of the project, we identified some unique challenges with enlarging Shelly’s basement window.

    First, the basement is finished, which means that we have to prevent dust from entering and polluting the basement. This is especially important when there is carpeting in the basement, removing concrete dust from carpeting can be a lengthy and frustrating process.

    Second, the interior has unique finishing that will needs to be restored to match the existing trim and drywall shape.

    On the exterior, the close proximity of the existing window to the ground level means that we will need to excavate, secure the ground with a window well and install proper drainage.

    Last, a gas line and the AC are in close proximity to the window, which meant that we will have to be extra careful not to damage either of those.

    In order to price this job we took a few important elements into account:

    • Digging was required below 22” inches of depth
    • A substantial amount of soil needed to be excavated and disposed of
    • A drainage pipe had to be installed and connected to the weeping tile
    • Concrete needed to be cut down to 36 inches
    • New, energy-efficient windows were to be installed
    • The interior drywall had to be rebuilt and matching trim needed to be installed

    All considering, the cost of the project is $2400 + HST.


    About 2 weeks after our consultation with Shelly, our crew set out to complete the project. From beginning to end, the work was done in about half a day, including cleani-up and finishing touches.

    The window was succesfully enlarged to meet the egress standards and now the basement offers a safe means of escape in case of a fire.

    We later showed Shelly how to operate her new window and she couldn’t be happier with it!
