Window & Door Enlargement in Ontario

A window enlargement project is a great way of bringing light, space, and air circulation into your home. Most people are not aware that they have the option of expanding an existing window or even create a window where there was none before.

Expanding the number and type of openings in your home is often only limited by your creativity. Here are some reasons why you might want to enlarge a window:

  • Capture western sun to bring more light into your home
  • Create an opening to allow you to see a part of your garden
  • Enlarge a basement window to meet fire regulations for making it a livable unit
  • Enlarge an existing window to increase light and airflow

    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.

    Types of Window and Door Enlargements

    Enlarging a Small Window

    This type of enlargement is common when you are looking to bring more light into a room. Enlarging a bedroom will allow more natural light and create a more comfortable space and create a feeling of space. Similarly, enlarging a window in the kitchen will sometimes offer a nice view of the garden and make the kitchen brighter and more comfortable.


    Converting a Window into a Patio Door

    Converting a living room window into a patio door can offer you quick and convenient access to your back yard. The added glass space will allow more light into your living and offer great ventilation when needed. A new patio door is also a great way to expose a view of your garden and greenery.


    Converting a Window into an Entrance Door

    Windows can be converted into an entrance door to give you another point of access into your house. Whether the new access is for tenants, children, elderly parents, or simply for convenience, adding a door is a great option for many of our customers. It is also a quick way to add substantial value to your property.


    Enlarging a Small Window into an Egress Regulation Window

    Converting a smaller window into an egress window is the most common type of window enlargement. Enlarging your windows to meet egress standards has many benefits. Egress windows can be used to create a safer space for you and your family, create a more liveable basement for parents or children and increase the value of your home. When considering egress windows, speak to our experts to make sure that your windows meet the necessary size requirements and meet the building code specifications.

    If you’re looking for any other types of enlargements, our experts can help! Give us a call today and we’ll be happy to speak to you about your specific project and needs.

    How much does a window enlargement cost?

    Every situation is unique and we are always happy to offer a free consultation for your enlargement project. The prices for window enlargements can vary greatly depending on the size of the window that is being enlarged, the material (brick or siding), and the structural support required to enlarge the opening in a safe manner. Here are a few examples to give you a general idea of the costs involved:

    • The window needs to be enlarged without excavation in a concrete wall

    If you have a small above grade window and enough clearance to cut it down, the window can be installed without having to excavate the ground. The cost for an enlargement like this is approximately $1400-$2400 (window included). 

    • The window needs to be cut down with excavation

    If you have a small above-grade window, you will need to cut it down in order to meet regulations. This means that we will have to excavate the ground and install a window well with drainage. The cost for a job like this is approximately $2000-$3000 (window included). 

    The best way to evaluate the cost of your enlargement is to contact us and request a free estimate. Our experts are happy to work with you and find the most cost-efficient way to complete your projects. A consultation could end up saving you more money with creative input from our experts!

    Window Enlargement, Cut-Outs, and Cut Downs

    There are a few important considerations when deciding to enlarge a window or create a new window. To decide on the best course of action for your situation, you will need to review your existing window, the type of enlargement, and the structural support required for your enlargement type.

    The easiest and least invasive type of cut out is the cut-down. This is when you are cutting a window “down” to expand it vertically. Since you are not removing adjacent studs, this type of window cutout does not require a permit and is performed most often.

    Other enlargements such as window expansions and the creation of new openings are more complicated. Since they require cutting into adjacent walls, it’s important to make sure that any work being done doesn’t affect the structural stability of your home. Our trained staff will help you acquire permits (if required) and advise on ways to minimize the overall structural impact.

    If you are looking to enlarge basement windows, either to create an egress window or to bring in more light, there are a few things to keep in mind:

    1. The walls of your basement are made from concrete and require specialized saws and equipment to cut
    2. Depending on the location of your basement window, the cutting may require creating or expanding an existing window well
    3. Some manual or machine digging might be required to move ground surrounding the expanded opening

    Why Us?

    Trust our team for your window enlargement project. We start by offering a free consultation to create a plan for your project. By consulting with one of our professional installers (not a salesman), we can help you navigate the entire process and make sure you understand the scope and requirements.

    Choosing a professional installer will help you avoid costly mistakes. Especially when cutting is involved, it’s important to have an experienced professional to navigate the hurdles. Improper installation and draining of windows will cause water to accumulate and slowly leak into the living space. Insulation and sealing can be costly on your monthly energy bill so saving money by doing it yourself can cost you more in the long run.

    We pride ourselves in being incredibly efficient. We work for longer hours than other crews to complete the job and cleanup on the same day. This means less hassle and interruption for you and your family.
