    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!!

    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.

    Reasons for Installing Egress Windows

    In our experience, the most common reason most people install egress windows is to convert their basement into a legal living unit. Especially common in Mississauga, families want to create a basement suite for their parents, in-laws or children. It is important that any basement living space has an easily accessible means of escape in case of an emergency.There are many other reasons why enlarging or cutting a window might benefit your living space:
    • Capture incoming sun to bring more light and life into a room
    • Create an opening that will allow you to see part of your garden or street
    • Increase airflow to a dry or humid room
    • Create a door cut out to install french doors or create a passage between rooms
    Whatever your reason, our experts have the experience to help you plan and execute your project. Call today for a free estimate and our expert installers will be happy to offer ideas and helpful suggestions.

    Mississauga Egress Windows Installation Process

    Egress window installation can involve cutting, digging and moving large volumes of soil. We want to make the process smooth from beginning to end. Our process is outlined below, rest assured that we will take care of every aspect of the installation from planning to execution.

    Assessment – Before the project begins, we want to understand your vision. This is the part where we listen to you and map out the project details. Our installers will come out to take measurements, explain regulations, give suggestions and help with permits (when necessary).

    Scheduling – Once everything is ready for the project, we will coordinate with your schedule to find a suitable time for installation. Our goal is to accommodate your schedule to make sure the installation doesn’t interfere with your daily life.

    Installation – During installation day, we will arrive at the scheduled time (usually early morning) and remove all obstacles from the immediate surroundings. We place a cloth on the floor to prevent damage to it and nearby furniture.

    Finishes and Cleanup – This is the part that many companies overlook but is extremely important. In a rush to finish the job, installers often overlook the small details like making sure that sealant is properly applied and that there are no air leaks in the window. We take extra care to put in the finishing touches. Service calls are a hassle for both you and us, we try to avoid them by getting it right the first time.

    Proper planning and execution are the keys to every successful renovation project. So, If you are considering a window replacement or installation project in Mississauga, give us a call today for your free estimate.

    Construction projects (including Egress windows) must comply with Mississauga zoning laws as well as the Ontario building and fire codes.

    According to information offered on the Mississauga municipal website, Egress windows are required in order for a living space to qualify as a second unit.

    The Ontario building code addresses the regulations relevant to egress in a number of sections:

    1. An egress door must be installed if it necessary for a person to travel more than one storey to reach an exit
    2. If there is no door that provides direct access to the outside, every floor containing a bedroom must have at least one window that fits the following criteria:
      1. Must be opened from the inside without the use of tools

      3. Remain open and maintain the above open area without any additional support
    3. When the window used for egress is a sliding window, the openable portion of the window will have a minimum area of 0.35m² (3.77 square ft).
    4. If the window opens into a window well, there will be a clearance of at least 55cm (21 inches) in front of the egress window
    5. If the window sash swings outwards into the window well, the operation of the sash should not be obstructed in a way that would prevent escape in case of an emergency
    6. If a window well cover is installed, it should be openable from the inside without any special tools or knowledge
