Egress Windows in Hamilton, ON

Both homeowners and investors in Hamilton are making the most of their properties with the installation of egress windows. Egress windows are mandatory when converting a basement into a legal living apartment. Whether for relatives or tenants, the increase in living space improves both the availability and affordability of housing in Hamilton and is highly encouraged by the city.

A second living unit is not the only reason to install an egress window in your home or basement. Egress windows are also a great way to bring more light into the room, increase ventilation and of course, provide a means of exit for you and your loved ones in case of a fire or emergency.

    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.

      1. Can be opened from the inside without any tools
      2. Has an open portion with a minimum area of 3.8 sqft (with no one dimension that is smaller than 15 inches)
      3. Can maintain the above opening without any supportEgress window size hamilton

    3. If the window opens into a window well, the window needs to have a clearance of at least 22 inches in front of it
    4. If the above window has a sash, the sash should not obstruct the opening or operation of the window in a way that will reduce the required clearance
    5. If there is a window well cover, it should be openable from the inside without the use of any special tools or knowledgeegress womdpw well size hamilton
    Hamilton bylaws require that renovations and modifications to a property be made by first obtaining a permit from the city. The permit should have a drawing of the proposed modification and its impact on the structure.

    Window Wells and Drainage in Hamilton

    Because egress windows are often found below ground level, window wells have to be dug to allow clearance for the window sash to open. Window wells can sometimes pose a problem during rain and snowmelt because water can enter the window well and cause basement leaks and flooding. Installing proper drainage is vital for preventing future costly problems.

    Before digging around the property it is a good idea to make sure that there aren’t any hidden sewer and drainage lines buried underground. This can be done by contacting Ontario One Call, a service that lets you know if there any hidden lines or pipes below the surface. This service covers all of Ontario including Hamilton and the surrounding areas.
