Increase the safety of you home with the installation of a basement escape windows in your foundation.  With IWS’s efficient and clean service work is complete in just one day! As a full service concrete cutting contractor, IWS has the right equipment to cut through your entire foundation from the outside of your house. We also use water on our blades which eliminates dust all together (2-3 cup per opening). The typical Egress Window Installedcarpenter would have to cut with a gas saw from both side making it very difficult to get a nice clean cut as well as filling your home with dust and gas emissions.  Our start to finish:

The Space Creators! Professionally Installed Basement Escape Windows!

Here is our install process:
  • Fibergass mats are placed on the yard for transportation of our mini-excavator. This helps to prevent yard damage.

  • Excavation of the foundation is then performed exposing the footings and drain tile.

  • Rock is put in hole over exposed tile providing optimal drainage. Water that gets into hole will filter down directly to tile.

  • Time to cut. Foundation is cut to exact size, all cutting is preformed from the out side of your home.

  • Window installation. IWS installs a custom made inswing window which allows for egress from basement even if the window well is obstructed. Example: installing a crank out window with an uncovered window well, if the well filled up with snow, it is possible the window would not be able to open. Safety first.

  • Window well instillation is next. IWS offers your standard metal well, or a decorative Rockwell Window Well ( The RockWell is fiberglass designed to look like a stone wall giving more character to the egress and also proving a safety step for easy escape. (pictured to the right)
